Thank goodness I got an Engineer for a brother and he suggested I purchase a travel size converter. I told him the specs of my curling iron then he recommended me to purchase 150watt max converter! After searching high and low, the geek gal found a perfect sized converter for her spoiled curling iron! :)
Newstar NF150 AC-AC Converter
Round and Flat Outlet
made in: Taiwan
Php599.75 (approx $13.00)
I did some research first prior to purchasing and its perfect that the brand is Newstar. The reason why I purchased this brand, aside from its size is because I have used the same brand for rechargeable batteries and I don't have problems with it!
7 days full warranty upon purchase and I can easily take this back to the shop if there's something wrong. Input AC220V/Output AC110V or you can change the setting to Input AC110V/Output AC220V, works for both round and flat outlet. Which is perfect for travel as well!
Glad I have my own handy-dandy converter! Huge nerd! You know, I'll do anything to make my Hot Tools Curling Iron work!
Keep in mind, do check with a professional on what maximum wattage you should purchase for a converter! I purchased this at Electronics Boutique, Robinson's Place Ermita Manila. You can purchase similar product (same or different brands) at your local electronic shops!
