was announced today by Andy Kaplan, president, worldwide networks for Sony Pictures
Television (SPT).  The effort, titled Picture This, will utilize the channels’ storytelling expertise to

impact it has on our land, waterways, marine life and oceans. Through our Picture This
campaign, we want to remind viewers to think twice before using, and then quickly discarding,
their plastic bags. Partnering with El Gamma Penumbra, who is known for their compelling
environmental performances, was a natural choice and their inspiring storytelling for Picture
This is sure to make a big difference,” said Hui Keng Ang, Senior Vice President and General

Papa's 58'th birthday at Borgo Cafe Robinsons Las Pinas


Celebrating birthdays is one of the most special thing to do with our loved ones. Remembering that special day and forgetting that we're getting old, lol.

Dermax Professional - Retinol-C (Product Review)


DERMAX PROFESSIONAL has an intensive line of beauty products from face to body. Retinol - C is a wrinkle therapy cream that targets wrinkles and fine lines. I'm in my 30's now and I'm seeing a lot of fine lines on my face since I reached the age of 27. 


On the label it says, "Visible instant and long term anti-wrinkle result". Well, after 3 days straight of using this water-based anti-wrinkle on my face I felt the difference on my skin. It became firmer, which is good! The smell is actually like an old bread that soon it'll have molds on it. I know! It's an eeiiiwww smell but I didn't mind it as long as it will give me a good result.  
 

 
Before going to bed
 
 
 
After I slept for about 7 hours.
 
 
I love using DERMAX Retinol-C. It may have an unexplainable smell but it really works on my skin. 

Afternoon Bonding at Black Canyon Coffee - SM Southmall


Every time I'm with my bestie and kiddo at SM Southmall, we always dine at Black Canyon Coffee. We don't go here for their coffee, but for their affordable and great tasting meals. Most especially their noodle dish. I always order, Stir-fried Pasta with Ham and Tomato Sauce for 212.00 php/5.00 USD. Pasta dish with egg, red and green bell pepper, slices of button mushroom and generous amount of ham. Good for 1-2 person, depending how much big eater you are but I can't finish this alone unless I'm starving.

CHICKILICIOUS - Taiwan's Famous Fast Food Is Now In The Philippines


Last Sunday, September 13, I got invited to the grand opening of Taiwan's Famous Fast Food Chain - CHICKILICIOUS. Located at Sea Residence, in front of the Mall of Asia Pasay. This fast food chain has been in Taiwan for 11 years and still counting. Has overseas branch like Singapore, China, Korea, US, Australia and now, here in the Philippines.


Now we have other options to eat great tasting chicken aside from the big bee and the red haired clown. Chickilicious offers affordable chicken and refreshing milk teas. 


One thing that is distinct on their chicken, it's marinated in lemon and their special machine where all their secret ingredients are mixed.


Golden fried Chickilicious with Black Pepper. Surprisingly, after an hour that we were eating, this chix is still crispy! They really live up to the name of this chicken. 


Choco Demon Chickilicious (140 php).  Now, this is not common in all other fast food chains that offers chicken meal. 


Takoyaki Crispy Chickilicious (140 php). This is one of my fave from their menu. I like the crispiness of the shredded takoyaki. 


BBQ Chickilicious (130 php). This flavor is only in the Philippines. Jayson Sy (owner) says that he added this on their menu because Filipinos loves barbecue and this will be a hit with us PH customers.  



Noodled fried Chickilicious with dried Seaweeds (140 php). This is an alternative way for people who doesn't eat seaweed, like me.


Crispy Chicken Pizza (150 php). Topped with pizza sauce and cheese. 


Crispy Tofu with Barbecue sauce. A must try snack here at Chickilicious for only 70 php. 

All variations of Chicken are marinated with Lemon, you have an option to add some flavors to it.

Food Review - Angels Pizza (Makati Ave)


Let me just say that I am one of the many people who can eat every day a PIZZA and PASTA. Yup! That's how I love these two foods. I know that PIZZA is bad for anyone who wants to lose weight, but I still don't care! Lol. Anyhoo, I got invited to ANGELS PIZZA with my fellow blogger friends and we get to try their 2 best selling pizzas, pasta, chicken, tacos and choco brownies. 


It's a feast for us that rainy Friday. 


This CHICKEN ALOHA is one their BEST SELLER. With lots of chicken bits, pineapple, ham, green peppers, mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of barbecue sauce. (Family size for 416 php)


CREAMY GARLIC and 5 CHEESE (459 php or 10.40 USD) . Thin crust pizza with 5 different of cheese with the taste of garlic. The good thing about their pizza crust is that, it's not OILY!


Now I can eat all these chix! BUFFALO CHICKEN (199 php or 4.50 USD) it's supposed to be really spicy, however, this one is not! This is not the typical buffalo chicken that you would want to drink water after you have one bite. Angels Pizza's version of Buffalo Wings has a mild spicy flavor. 


They also have TACOS. You have 4 choices of dip. Creamy garlic, cheese, sour cream and tangy tomato dip (27 php each). 


Their SPAGHETTI  is sweet and definitely most Filipinos will like this especially kids. 


CHOCO BROWNIES for 92 php or 2.00 USD. This is a must try! Fudge brownies that kids will surely crave on this sweets. 

Thanks to Angels Pizza for all these yummy food! A full tummy Friday with friends!

Food Review - Meat Depot, BF Aguirre


If you have been reading my blog, you'll notice that I'm constantly dining along BF Aguirre in Paranaque. It's relatively near my place and about 15 minutes drive from my house. This is one reason I love living in the south metro, we have tons of restaurants and cafes to choose from. 

Fashion Haul - Forever 21 Bangles



I love FASHION and buying accessories is a must for us women. It will complete an entire #ootd or totally ruin it. As a mom, I have to budget our monthly allowance thru monthly bills, groceries, car fuel and other stuffs needed in the house. So, buying a new dress or a pair of shoe is not a monthly thing to me. If I have an extra budget, then I'll buy one.

Yesterday Chi and I were in SM Southmall and we watched PIXELS THE MOVIE and after that we did some window shopping. I saw Fashion 21 is on BUY1 GET1 promo and I checked it out.

Bought these 2 silver bangles for 189 php (less than 5 USD). My birthday is nearly approaching and I might use one of this bangles on my #ootd soon.

So, what do you think? Yay or Nay?

SM Group partners with The Walt Disney Company


#SMSpellsMagic
Last Tuesday, September 1, 2015 - I am fortunate to be one of the Bloggers to witness the collaboration of the two biggest company here in the Philippines and in the world. SM Group announced a collaboration with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to bring the Disney brand of stories closer to Filipinos through mall, retail, entertainment and amusement opportunities. The two companies aim to bring Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars bands to life through unique Disney experiences at SM's many leisure and entertainment properties. Fan-favorite Disney brands and characters will soon be seen and available in SM Stores such as Disney branded events, promotions and other unique experiences. 


Mr. Henry Sy Sr. envisioned and purposed a second home for Filipinos across the nation where they can create memorable bonding activities with their families through amusement facilities, retail centers, and food establishments, all found in ONE Mall. 65 years later, SM has 52 malls across the Philippines. 


Both SM and Disney have given, and continue to give, customers happy lifetime memories across all generations. Both brands offer a legacy, a tradition, a way of life - a world that customers identify with and find attachment to. Through this partnership, SM will continue to create these experiences and bring the Disney magic closer to Filipinos. 

As what Rob Gibly, Managing Director, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia said - "Everyday, we make millions of Filipinos laugh and smile with our stories and characters from Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars. We have worked with the various arms of SM group over the years and today we  are delighted to announce our collaboration on a comprehensive plain to create magical moments and memories that will last a lifetime for fans across the Philippines."



Disney and SM have worked hand in hand to bring multiple experimental events to the Filipino families such as the recent Avengers Experience in SM North Edsa, wherein guests were treated to life-size characters, avenger-themed games, and a meet and greet with Captain America, Thor, and Black Widow. 




To officially jumpstart its formal bond as allies, SM and Disney will be launching a "Star Wars Galactic Christmas" to welcome the latest installment of the movies, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." The exhibit will include life-size figurines of characters from the movie, interactive games, and official merchandise from the SM Store and Toy Kingdom. 

Watch out for the "Star Wars Galactic Christmas" event in Select SM Supermalls near you.
