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.

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.

Kats Cafe - Robinsons Las Pinas


Before heading to Parque Espana Alabang, we had a scrumptious lunch at Kats Café. Located at the food strip of Robinsons Las Pinas. It used to be inside BF Resort Las Pinas and just last year they transferred to Robinsons.

The Secret of SNAILS - FARMSTAY Snail Repair Cream


What to know about SNAILS:
Farmers in CHILE back in 1980 were exporting snails to restaurants in EUROPE noticed that the skin on their hands became extremely soft. And while harvesting snails if they happen to have injuries and burns it also quickly healed without becoming infected.
Studies show that the snail slime contains a perfect balance of proteins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidant which:
  • Stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
  • Protect the skin from premature skin aging.
  • Snail slime is ideal for preventing and repairing wrinkles.
  • Tightens pores
  • Hydrates skin and makes it smoother.
  • Heals inflamed and irritated or damaged skin

Product Review:

I have been interested using KOREAN beauty products, I've noticed that their skin are very smooth and pore less. I have a bad skin on my face, it's dry, dull and has zits every now and then especially when my PMS is striking my hormones. I wasn't hesitant to try a new product because I wanted to look for a product which my skin will benefit and will heal my acne marks and dull skin.
This time, I tried FARMSTAY Snail Repair Cream.  It's a white cream that easily absorbs my skin.  I tried using this cream at night after I washed my face to cleanse all the dirt and apply a generous amount of this cream. It smells so good and you can really feel that your skin is hydrated instantly.

I love using this product! Thanks FARMSTAY.

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 with sprinkles on top.. It was my kid who first had a taste of this 150 php / 3.50USD Nitrogen Gelato. She loves anything with sprinkles, I mean you name it, from Doughnuts to cakes and ice cream, Lol.
 
 

 My best friend has Milo Nitrogen Gelato. Very unique and fun way to serve their nitrogen gelato - with syringe.
 
 
A well spent afternoon with my best friend and my baby Chi. If you want to try a whole new version of gelato, head over to OUTRE BF Aguirre in Paranaque.

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 suggested me to use an air purifier. She has been using it for a couple of years now and she finds it effective. I also consulted my child's pediatrician about using an air purifier and she said Asian Hospital and St. Lukes Medical is also using an air purifier all over their hospital. So that impresses me and made me eager to buy one for our home.
I bought a SHARP Plasmacluster Air Purifier in SM Appliance, roughly about 10,000 php/ 230 USD. It's pricey but it's definitely worth buying. I have been suffering from allergic rhinitis for about a year now and my kid has asthma for almost 5 years now. And buying this reliable brand of air purifier gives me peace of mind that we are smelling clean air.
SHARP Plasmacluster Air Purifier eliminates 99% of odor, smoke, pollens, bacteria, molds and other viruses.

Be Healthy with HERBALIFE

Nowadays, everything is fast paced. Fast food and microwavable food are not healthy for us but, because of our busy schedule and we want to serve our family fast cooking food we tend to stick with this bad habit. Technology also makes us unhealthy and obese, Yes! Because of all these gadgets, cellphones, tablets and other game gadgets we forget that we can do a little exercise such as walking and even a quick jog in our village is such BIG health on having a healthy body.

 
Herbalife Health Poll: 9 in 10 Filipinos ”highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause
Pres Release

MANILA, Philippines - Nine in 10 Filipino consumers surveyed by global nutrition company Herbalife are “highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause them, with the same number believing that simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall well-being.
A good number of the respondents expressed willingness to adopt a healthy lifestyle; 79 percent said that they would cut down on unhealthy foods, 78 percent expressed their willingness to exercise more regularly, and 72 percent said they would make better nutrition choices.
“We welcome the results of the survey. It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health concious and self-aware that they need to make some lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being. It also gives Herbalife an idea where we are needed, because as the survey revealed only four out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager.
The respondents, however, cited the following as the top obstacles to achieving a healthy lifestyle: lack of time for exercise (75 percent), lack of time to make proper nutrition choices (64 percent), and high cost of healthy food (62 percent).
The same health poll likewise showed that the top three aging-related concerns in the country were heart, brain, and eye health.

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

Chichi at 5 months old.
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 and always remember that we love her so much and we are very happy that she came into our lives.
Those simple stories are very memorable to my child and even tell exact story to her playmates and her grandpas and grandmas. Lol. And I don't know what will be her questions when she's at her young adulthood.

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.



Press Release
 
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, rain, wind, earth and man; and tells the story of how a confluence of such disparate elements can, under just the right conditions, yield poetry in a bottle.



Since its inception at the turn of the century, the Grand Wine Experience has seen itself transform from a humble gathering of wine enthusiasts into a monumental Mecca to which bon vivants, celebrities, dignitaries, top executives and members of high society make their annual pilgrimage.
 
Founded by the four Joseph brothers of Philippine Wine Merchants, the Grand Wine Experience is widely regarded as the most spectacular, most lavish and most anticipated wine event of any kind in Southeast Asia.


As this year’s theme, the word ‘vintage’ carries more gravitas not just because we are hitting the 15th milestone year of the event, but also because we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the company behind it. This year also marks the move to a significantly more spacious venue, one that can cater to double the capacity of the previous Marriott grand ballroom, no easy feat, but a challenge worth taking on nonetheless.
 
 
This year’s edition of The Grand Wine Experience promises not only to up all the antes, but shatter and surpass all expectations. On November 13, 2015 at the new Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel, it simply comes down to this --- you are going to have the best time of your life.

 
Presented by Philippine Wine Merchants and Ralphs Wines and Spirits.  Co-presented by:  Rustans Supermarket, Starbucks Coffee, Store Specialist Inc., Marriott Hotel Manila, Resorts World Manila, Future Trade International, Diageo Philippines, Moet-Hennessy Philippines, Premier Wine and Spirits, Barcino Corporation, Fly Ace Corporation, Bel Mondo Italia, Corp., Emperador Distillers, Aviver International, Best World Beverage Brands, Golden Wines, Grand Cru and Booze On Line.
