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…

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.
