I took this photo yesterday along the stretch of EDSA. What wrong with this picture? "SALAMAT PO! PANGULONG GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYA SA FOOTBRIDGE NA ITO" (Thank You! President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo for this footbridge) Eerrr! Did she pay for the footbridge? Aren't we supposed to thank the taxpayers? Why should we thank her?
Last Sunday in a local newspaper, I saw an Avon ad. It requires you to text to a certain 4 digit number and in return the first 2, 500 texters will get PhP600 worth of Avon make up products. I got my free make up at Avon SM Megamall branch last Wednesday.
free make up worth PhP600
I got an Avon ultra moisture rich lipstick and an Avon glazewear SPF15 lip gloss for free!
I made a previous post about how to spot a fake Longchamp Le Pliage. Now, I have gotten hold of a fake Longchamp Le Pliage bag for you to visualize the difference from the original one.
original Longchamp Le Pliage Type M front
The red bag is an original made in France Longchamp Le Pliage Type M and the green one is a fake bought for less than PhP500! Right now, Longchamp has been manufacturing some of their bags from China. So, if you got one that is made in China, it could still be real. These pictures below can help you spot the difference so look closely.
I was giddy, excited and photo op ready lol Scored four invites, my DB, DS, together with my long time friend, AC and I went to NBC, The Fort, Taguig armed with my reliable point and shoot Canon 860IS.
We were seated in the front row and feeling superstar in our own rights!
It took me less than 30 minutes to achieve this look lol Boy, am I gifted or what?! haha
Two of my friends were raving about Romulo Cafe. Of course, I have to try it out. Last Sunday, DH said a friend of his was coming over, it got me thinking that this will be my chance to urge DH to try this restaurant!
Good thing we went there post dinner time as diners were already checking out. But still we needed to wait for 20 minutes for our table to be ready. This restaurant must be really good to have such a huge following. The restaurant was in full swing that night!
memorabilia of Carlos P. Romulo at main dining
The main dining can seat approximately 45 persons. Black and white dominate the color of this room. The flooring if I am not mistaken, is hand painted. Even the lines on the ceiling too!
Don't you just love butter cookies! I got a can from our neighbor during the Christmas holiday. I can eat a couple in one seating. A can has three layers of soft butter cookies. I am now on my second layer. So, help me with my diet lol
Sizzlin' Pepper Steak
Ortigas Center, Pasig City
My bff, GT, has long been wanting to try Sizzlin' Pepper Steak. She was so willing to try it out that she even treated me on this lunch date haha
The photo above features the signage placed on top of the table. When the green one is visible, a server will come and take your order or request. Then the server would turn the signage red side up. The concept is cool if the server is attentive. Good thing, we were the only ones eating right at that moment. Although, in our case, it became sort of a habit to just raise a hand to call their attention lol
Yoshinoya is a combination of two words, Yoshino which is a province in Old Tokyo, Japan and Ya which means house. With over more than a hundred years in food business, Yoshinoya is now the most preferred Japanese fast food restaurant in the country.
Last Wednesday, The Yoshinoya Century Pacific, Inc. was gracious enough to invite bloggers to the launching of the newest addition in their menu- Beef Misono and Beef Burger!
Beef Misono consists of thinly sliced beef on top of rice. If you love beef steak, this is a must try!
I was kidding DH as we entered an empty restaurant, except for the staffs and chef of course, around 11:30am on a Valentines day. I said to him "So, you reserved the whole place for our Valentines date, huh?" lol And we both laugh. That's the reason why I was able to get a picture of the restaurant's interior without any obstruction. But it did have a couple of diners- families and lovers, as we wrapped up our lunch date around 2pm.
Clarifying shampoos are not often seen in grocery shelves so when I saw one earlier this week, I grab and bought it. I read somewhere that we need to use a clarifying shampoo at least once a week to rid of shampoo residue and for you to be able to have a break with your normal shampoo that you use. Ever experience using your everyday, regular shampoo continuously and it seems not to be working like the first time you used it. Now, here is where the clarifying shampoo kicks in. I used it once last week and I will be using it next week and see how my hair will progress.
Suave Clarifying Shampoo PhP139.75
These shampoos, facial wash, body wash and conditioner are what I have right now on my stainless steel shower rack. See the two Swallow brand small bottles of shampoos in the middle front I am trying it right now- that's why the small size. I always opt for smaller bottles when trying out shampoos. But unlike local brands, imported brands like Suave don't carry a small bottle of their shampoo line. It sucks right? You have to buy a big bottle only to find out that the shampoo doesn't work for you. Well, hopefully, everything goes well with this brand or I will shift to another brand again!
My grandma who has recently passed away gave me this lovely piece of stone- lavender chalcedony encased in 18k white gold. It has been with me since I got married. I only get the chance to use it this year. As you have read in my previous post, I recently cleaned out my closet. It was at this point that I remembered and searched for the fine gem.
Lavender Chalcedony gemstone pendant
I searched online and found this. So, I guess this is a Lavander Chalcedony. Help me if you know!
I searched everywhere, Mercury Drug and Watson's, for salabat to no avail. Until yesterday, after my workout, I went straight to Unimart to buy my shitake mushroom and guess what I saw... ginger brew! Just what I have been looking for the past couple of days. You see, I have been trying to get well from my two-month on and off battle cough. I tried taking cough medicines, vitamin C and even resorted to antibiotics. I think salabat would do me good. So, I bought a jar. There are two variants, I bought the original one while the other variant is with lemon/ calamansi.
Ingredients are ginger, sugar and cayenne (no artificial flavor).
Stir in two teaspoons of Ginger brew "salabat" into a cup of hot water.
I was in Unimart the other day and found a pack of Chan Pui, much like the one I wrote about a few posts ago, this pack is cheaper at PhP137.50.
Chan Pui Mui Preserved Plum with seed Php137.50
So, what now is the catch, you ask? It's not seedless. My DH pointed that out to me when I braggingly said to him that I found a cheaper version of his favorite, chan pui. He said that although it tasted the same, he still likes his preferred brand because it is seedless and therefore prevent accidental cracking of his tooth. And less strain on his TMJ, I guess...
