Location: MANILA

To survive in today’s fast-paced and highly demanding world, we all have to be smart to survive. Smart about our decisions, smart about the daily choices we make, smart about how we conduct yourselves or simply put, living a Smart Life!

We all have our own set of tasks and responsibilities and at the end of the day, we all want to be productive but still find time to enjoy life. We want to be able to go back to bed and say I was able to live all out!

As for me, I try my best to balance work and play. And it’s not that hard to do when you have SMART, the leader in mobile that makes life better with meaningful innovations. Thanks to their efficient LTE connection I am able to outsmart traffic using Waze, book my car service sans the hassle using Uber, listen to my favorite artists (currently obsessed with Chris Brown’s new music!) using Spinnr! And just recently, I discovered that I can now have entertainment anywhere and watch movies and TV shows on my mobile using iflix, a subscription video on-demand service that offers blockbuster and classic movies! To add to that, FOX International is also available! It’s like having cable service on my mobile device!

Aside from having entertainment anywhere, shopping and payment are made easy with Smart Life’s Charge2Phone service, it is the country’s first sticker-based contactless payment solution- your mobile phone turned into a credit card plus, there is no need to sign sales slips! Just stick, tap and shop! It is the new smart way to pay!

Love that through SMART, we can do our day to day tasks and still be connected, efficient and entertained all at the same time! There’s no other way to live but to live all out and to live the Smart Life!

That night I saw a bunch of office guys partying (while carrying their laptop bags) and another group of people all wearing raincoats haha!


SATURDAY | 10:15 am – Gearing up for a long day. The secret to any lazy day outfit is to add a hat. It instantly makes the whole look 10x more stylish!
