The Soshal Network

This is not Mark Zuckerberg’s life story…




Who are they? They are your friendly neighbourhood Spider Man! ESTE! 

They are the lovely alpha female owners of the most hilarious, the craziest, the most informative, the showbiz linggo-est, and THE most SOSHAL blog in the Philippines — THE SOSHAL NETWORK!


I am not really sure when or how I got to their blog but there’s only one thing I am sure of — they make my boring afternoons in the office a little bit  KUH-RAY-ZEE! (in a good way, of course) 😀 Not to sound sipsip but my day is really not complete without visiting their site. I can read their new entries just in one sitting. Naks! 😉 Though there are days that it’s a little too busy at the office and my face is screaming I HAD A BAD DAY, I really see to it that I visit their site to take all the bad vibes away before I go to bed at night.

As the saying goes, “Imitation is the highest and sincerest form of flattery.” However, in as much as I would like to imitate their blogging style, I know I would do my blog no justice. Why? Aside from the fact that I am not a lawyer (though I dream to become one someday), honey, I am nowhere near soshal! 😀 LOL


Oh yeah, you’ve heard it right! These sweet trio are L-A-W-Y-E-R-S! Asteeg!!! 


But don’t fret, they don’t speak Latin in their blog. 😉 One of the many things I like about them, and I must say is THE best thing about their blog is that their write-ups are very light to the readers. (Sa bigat ba naman ng pinagdadaanan nating mga Pinoy, gusto mo pang magbasa ng wan milyon kilometers deep na articles!? HINDI NA NOH!) Also, their blog is interactive. They meet up with their loyal readers by hosting events.




❤ Miss Provinciated mostly talks about her daily adventures with her family and/or friends down south (of Luzon), specifically in what they call BaCav or Bacoor, Cavite. She is also one of my sources on showbiz updates. Ohah! Ohah! Don’t tell her she’s my personal favorite 😉 Gawd I make the loudest laugh whenever I read her chronicles!!

❤ Miss Sophisticated writes just about anything that captures her heart and attention, old or new stuff — mostly the sosyal stuff 🙂 It could be the latest boutique from where she lives or her usual go-to place whenever she feels like “just hanging out”. Uhm, you know where Balesin Island is? Well, she’s one of the stockholders! 😉

❤ Miss Domesticated speaks about the most prestigious job in the world — motherhood. 🙂 I have so much respect for this woman and everything she writes about. (Not that I don’t have respect for P and S ha!) But being a working mom myself, I know what exactly it would take just to make ends meet. Her articles provide me tips on how to effectively enjoy being a mother/entertainer/nurse/career woman/etc.. etc..


So! If you are searching for dash of ka-sosyalan and a dose of laughter, visit NOW! 😀


the five people you meet in heaven. by: mitch albom

I’ve never read any inspirational books before. I was never a fan, but this one got me intrigued. I got the opportunity to watch the movie first which actually told me that there is no point in reading the book anymore. Thanks to the sloppy portrayal of the cast of characters! How come a lot of book readers tell me to give this poor thing a chance? I mean, c’mon! The movie had already bored me to death, why on Earth would I commit suicide the 2nd time by reading that boring book!?

I was firm on my decision not to read it, until my seatmate at work ended up crying after finishing the entire book.

In this book, Mitch Albom teaches his readers about how each one of us has his own concept of heaven, of sacrifice, why we should not entertain the idea of holding grudges, why we should not regret about your life or think of it as worthless, how to keep a couple’s love nourished, and that how each of our lives are intertwined in one way or another.

Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion

I’ve always been a fan of the Cetaphil products especially their Gentle Skin Cleanser which has gentle, non-irritating formulas appropriate for most skin types. I’ve been using it as a cleanser for my face for over three years now and I plan to continue using it for as long as their company continues to manufacture it!

Just this year, when I was on the 2nd trimester of my pregnancy, the skin on my tummy area became very dry and super duper itchy that I want to commit suicide already! I’ve tried every lotion, moisturizer, and even liniments sold at the drugstore but none of them seem to cure my very itchy problem. Hence, I went to visit my OB Gynecologist and asked for her help. She prescribed Cetaphil’s DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion!


Based on it’s description, it is clinically proven to hydrate and protect dry skin for 24 hours. Hmm… Is this even true at all?? I was of course skeptical but I was flabbergasted when after two days of use, I’m no longer experiencing the itchiness on my bulging belly area. I even forgot it was itchy! It really works! If only all the products in the market is as effective as what its label says, the earth would be a better place to live!

What makes Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion very effective is because it contains Epidermal Replenishing Complex, a unique combination of 5 key ingredients that protects dry skin and enhances hydration. It is also non-greasy, fragrance free, and the best part is that it is non-comedogenic. Meaning, it wont block your skin pores and it is ideal for sensitive skin.

An 85g (3 oz) tube will only cost you around PhP700 and you can use it everyday as a regular lotion and you can apply it lavishly as often as needed. What are you waiting for? Try it now!
