Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Food Review - BB-Q Chicken and Pizza Starmall Daang Hari

I like any pasta and one of my all time fave is pizza. I know it's not healthy coz it's greasy, however, I still enjoy and would want to eat atleast a slice every month, lol.

Product Review - Loreal Revitalift Magic Blur

I purchased online BDJ's December box and to my surprise it's all Loreal beauty products which I'm so excited to try it. One of my skin dilemma is my dark under eye. I've tried so many products to lessen my dark under eye and this Loreal Revitalift Magic Blur is what I tried for only 3 days straight.

Top 5 must-try at Ersao - Taiwanese Restaurant is now in the south!

First time I tried Ersao is at Lasalle Taft Manila and I liked their affordable rice meals and milk teas. Now, they recently opened their newest branch at SM Soutmall, Las Pinas City. Yey for me coz I don't need to drive all the way to Taft just to have milk tea from Ersao.

Food Crawl at Westgate Alabang

One of the best thing to do is eat - do you agree? Trying out different restaurant in 1 day is heaven for me. Cons - I will get fat, but hell I care if I'm gonna be able to try the best food in 5 restaurant - I don't mind that, lol.

Dermcare: Hair and Skin Clinic at an affordable price

Dermcare Hair and Skin Clinic has a branch here in Laspinas - Zapote Arcade and I think they have been there since early 2000. I had my first experience at Dermcare back in 2007 when they had a promo in Metrodeal for Hair Rebonding for 1,000 php. They have a really good service and products are not harmful on my hair scalp. I haven't tried any of their facial services and I can't wait to try their facial with diamond peel. (Infographic Press Release) Dermcare: Hair and Skin Clinic at an affordable price 

Myra - E: Vitamin E Enriched Facial Wash

I'm 32 now and finding the right facial wash for my sensitive skin is one of my dilemma. As we age, our skin loses vitamins and our skin needs proper protection, and enough nutrients such as Vitamin E. Good thing that MYRA-E has  TWO kinds of facial wash, both enriched with Vitamin-E. Myra White and Myra Smooth are two of my options now for my daily facial wash.

FRIDAY'S lunch on a Saturday

American Restaurant is popular here in the PH and even embraced by Filipinos. We enjoy grilled meat, burgers, fries and beers. T.G.I. Friday's offers American-Filino dishes which Filipino families enjoy much. What I love about Friday's is that you can enjoy American-food with a taste of Filipino.

Little Chinatown - BF Resort Las Pinas

Chinese food is not new for us Filipinos, it's been with us for centuries now (if I'm not mistaken). Filipinos favorite are noodle dish and dumplings. I have dine in so many authentic Chinese restaurants when I had a vacation in Singapore and Hong Kong few years ago and dining here in the Philippines is somehow (a little) different, in cooking method, spices and ingredients used. Oyster sauce, soy sauce are the few common ingredients used in cooking Chinese dishes and even Filipino dishes. 

Seasons Cafe Buffet - Waterfront Manila Pavilion Hotel

We had an unplanned staycation at the Waterfront Manila Pavilion Hotel few months back. After attending an exhausting Tea Party Event (which made us starve and tired for 3 hours) and because my car is on number coding as well, my kid and I finally settled in to get one hotel room that day. We got a discounted Deluxe Room with 2 breakfast buffet at Seasons Café.

Lunch at Sarsa Kitchen - Mall of Asia

My college-buddy and I together with our kids had a day out at SM Mall of Asia. we treat our kids for a whole day at the Kid's Playplace and while they are draining all their energy - playing, and running, me and Tin had our time to shop at the mall. SM Mall of Asia is a huge shopping mall and just imagine to walk around at the mall and shop, that will be tiring and you will definitely starve, Lol.

Scrumptious dinner at Itallianis

Filipinos have embraced the love for foreign dishes like Italian, Japanese, Chinese and many other cultural dishes. Many restaurant have their own version and try to incorporate some local spices and taste. We, Filipinos love pasta and other red sauce dishes. Perhaps its because we are colonized by many other countries and we adapt their dishes and as the time passes, were able to make our own version.

Crisostomo - Filipino Dining Restaurant

Mama and Papa are looking for their new car around Alabang and we ended up starving and we decided to have dinner at Alabang Town Center. It has tons of good restaurants and cafes and because we all haven't tried dining at Crisostomo, we finally settled here.

BYS Nail Polish - Product Review

There are lots of Nail products to choose in the market now. From 30 php nail polish to 300 or even 400 php nail polish are available in the market now. Plain colored and even colorful with added blings are even popular now.

Cleaning and painting your nails is not my forte, lol. I can do my left hand but my right hand will be a disaster. So, I always had to go to a nail salon and let them do their magic on my nails. 
After cleaning my nails, she put the white nail enamel (2 coats) and while it's wet, she put generous amount of sprinkles/glitters on my wet nails. She used a brush to properly spread the glitters. And after that, she top it with clear polish to harden my nails.

And tada! I have a clean looking nails and I love my white glittering nails. Thanks BYS and Glamourbox.

I wasn't hesitant to try a new product because I wanted to look for a product which m…

OUTRE - Liquid Nitrogen Gelato: A whole new version of gelato

It's been months since my best friend and I have been drooling to try this unusual gelato. So one Friday aftee I called my best friend and we head out to OUTRE in BF Aguirre Paranaque. We were having  difficulty on finding this café. We tried google maps and even used some restaurant finder apps and no go. I was driving about 3o minutes along Aguirre, going back and forth at the stretch of Aguirre and I almost gave up until I called the café and after calling them I was able to distinguish where OUTRE is located. Haha... They have limited menu here but we tried their Potato Wedge with sweet and sour cream. Generous servings and BIG chunks of Potato Wedge. So, apparently this is the Nitrogen - refrigerated liquid comes from. They will open this tank and they'll get the refrigerated liquid to be mixed with the ice cream flavor of your choice. Now, the mixing is happening here with my cookie monster liquid gelato ice cream. Tada!!!! My Cookie Monster! Blue colored Gelato wit…

Happiness is in the AIR - SHARP launches 2 new products

Do you ever felt it's hard to breath? Do you have stuffy nose due to allergic rhinitis? Are you allergic to pollens, dust, animal hair and smoke? Having an asthma is not easy to live with. My daughter had skin asthma when she was less than 6 months old and her worst attack was last year. After surpassing SKIN ASTHMA it became an ASTHMA wherein she has wheezing sound when breathing, cough and stuffy nose. I had to buy a NEBULIZER and used it every time she will have Asthma attacks plus, she has to take some oral meds. It's heart breaking to see my child having difficulties and had to do this every time she will overplay and if our country is having erratic weather. Some of my safety precautions is by maintaining our house dust-free, clean and disinfecting all over the house by mopping the floor with bleach or any disinfectant liquid. Use disinfectant spray for sofa, beds, curtains and carpets. This is very costly and added to my grocery list monthly however, a friend of mine …

My 4 year old has been asking me "Mommy where do babies come from?"

Chichi asked me "Mommy where do babies come from?" Oh My GOD!!!!! My soon to-be 5 year old daughter asked me where did she come from? I know, all of us parents have experienced this dilemma with our growing up child and it's not easy to answer them. I can't tell to my 4 year old daughter how she came out of this world precisely and accurately! Lol. Instead, I told her "Daddy and Mommy prayed to God to give us a very beautiful daughter and then GOD hear our prayers and so you came out of this world." When Chichi was still 2 years old, I've been telling her stories that she came from mommy's tummy. And when she was still inside my womb I'm telling her that she's kicking me inside whenever I talked to her and when mommy sings to her. And when she was born we became so happy and our lives became more joyful than ever. But now, she's starting to ask too many questions, I still tell her the same story, over and over again. I want her to feel…

Overflowing BOOZE at the 15th Grand Wine Experience on November 13th at the Marriott Hotel Manila

I am very adventurous with food and even alcoholic drinks - cocktails, beer and wine. I have been trying different cocktail drinks since 2008 and I love anything with vodka and whisky. First time I had a beer when I was in Junior High and first to try a red wine when I was in college, however, I find the wine to be intimidating. Because of the rules of what not to do with wines and pretty much the basic Wine 101. I tried cooking with white wine with soups, but very rare to pair it while dining. But during the press launch of the 15th Wine Grand Experience at the Marriott Hotel Manila, I was able to dine and appreciate my meal while pairing it with red and white wines. It's my second time to experience a wine pairing event and that didn't disappoint me.

A wine’s vintage speaks of more than just the year of harvest. It is, in essence, the headline of an article, the name of a painting, the title of a novel; one that alludes to a period of romance between the sun, rai…
