20 Life Lessons We’ve Learned from Twitter Elan, Nunca Valderama

style quotes
On having a good taste (not necessary on food)


Maybe some of you known this Manila’s élan socialite twitter, Nunca Valderma. We’ve been following her since 2013, and we enjoyed her very sarcastic, witty, and elan tweets about our social and current events, politics, celebrity gossips, and anything.

Most of her followers, (almost 4k followers; update circa 2018, its 5K!) called her Mother Nunca, sharing her daily insights about her mundane life in the elite society of Manila, and occasional luxury travels. 

We don’t know honestly who is exactly behind that twitter account, but no doubt she’s an elite influencer, being followed by most of the Manila’s socialites. Unfortunately, she stopped sending witty tweets since 2014, but her account is still active. Hence, we can’t help but stalked her tweets again and share you her delightful life lessons.




On taking chances…

We all have that thoughts on things (or anything) but sometimes we are hesitant to go for it, maybe because we feel that it isn't for us, we have low self esteem, or maybe because it doesn't conform to the standards. If we want something and still in our mind, why not we go for it and take a risk? After all, life is created that way - risk and surprises!

adulting quotes
You might have the best IG photos in your squad, but if you act so tactless to other people, then maybe it's time for you to undergo REPUTATION workshops. You can't hide bad breeding with those luxury clothes, and well filtered photos, not even by your favorite aesthetic surgeon.

Money can't buy elegance and class.


On having choosing your personal style, not based on how expensive your LV are.
