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…

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.

While driving going to BF Aguirre in Paranaque, I noticed that there is an old looking cafe restaurant just passed Southville International School.

Cafe Alezon has an old rustic interiors and even outside.

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). Th…

Food Review - Angels Pizza (Makati Ave)

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.

CREAMY GARLIC and5 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 drin…

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?
