Sheisha Coffee

Sheisha Coffee

I love coffee and I love to go to different places and have a taste of what they offer. One fine Saturday afternoon, beb and I decided to go to Antipolo without any plans as to where we would go or eat. We headed directly to Antipolo church. After that, we went to Sheisha Coffee Shop. I remember my first sheisha way back in Dubai. Since alcohol is illegal, residents and ex pats can only choose between cigarette and sheisha.

The place is very peaceful and unique because of the sheisha that they offer. It comes in different flavors like strawberry, mint, mango and cola. We tried mango and it does not taste so bad although my favorite is still strawvberry. This comes with a long pipe powered by a burning charcoal.




Iced tea overload!

I Can Be Body Beautiful at Any Age with Wacoal

I Can Be Body Beautiful at Any Age with Wacoal

At the age of 30, aging of the skin and the body becomes evident. It is actually the time where most women are at the prime of their careers while also trying to maintain balance with family and personal life. Personally, I believed that anyone can be beautiful at any age. Beauty does not decrease with age. We just have to follow some reminders to always look young and beautiful.
How To Maintain A Good Figure

Aside from the healthy diet that you have to live by, I think the first thing to consider in maintaining a good figure is to find a good undergarment that gives a good support. You have to know your measurements. This will help you find the right bra size for you. It should not be too fit because it makes you feel uncomfortable and may even cause pain in the long run . If the bra is too loose, aside from it does not look good, it defeats the purpose of giving full support to your body. The trick is to invest in a good bra. We always get what we paid for so it is wise to save up for good quality undergarments even if it is more expensive. Do not sacrifice comfort for a few amount of money.





Wacoal DB 2700 is a premium Wacoal Bra that comes with a detachable bra. It gives a look of a fuller body that makes you feel a bit more sexier. And who says that only teenagers can have fun with their bra? The design of DB 2700 makes you feel younger because it is not plain and boring. The designs looked  elegant that really suits the working groups of those in their 30's

Review: Gayuma Restaurant

Review: Gayuma Restaurant 

Gayuma all started in Katipunan and as they say, the rest is history. This became a popular hangout place for students nearby campuses like UP, Ateneo and Miriam and before they knew it, people from different walks of life and from different places have been hooked already. Gayuma Ni Maria is now located in Sikatuna. The ambiance is creepy, more of a halloween on an everyday basis.

The inviting signage that makes you want to try this place 


Once You Go Black, You Never Go Back
This is a cream dory covered with cocoa crust. It's new to the taste buds and only good to try but definitely not to be included in the weekly menu. 

I Love You, Cross My Heart
This one is chicken fillet topped with cheese, mushroom and asparagus. The crunchy asparagus neutralizes the salty taste of cheese and of course my favorite mushroom makes it even tastier.


Better Than Sex
This is the very popular chocolate cake that made the restaurant famous! It's a soft chocolate cake that almost melts in your mouth with super rich chocolate frosting.

Overall rating is 7 out of 10. The foods are ordinary cooked in a different way to add a twist. It's a nice restaurant to try but I don't think it will suit all taste buds.



Review: Mama Chit's Cafe

Review: Mama Chit's Cafe

Mama Chit's Cafe is located in Calumpang, Marikina situated along the residential area. It's a small place perfect on a Sunday moment with friends who just want to relax and chill. The ambiance will take you down the memory lane with its memorabilia and pictures of music legend like Elvis Presley, fashion icon like Marilyn Monroe and the likes.


This is how it looks like inside with so many old school stuffs


The Spam burger is the real winner!!! I am addicted to Spam and the mustard and veggies made it even better!


I'm not really a burger person but this one is really delicious! The patty is so juicy!


The green tea latte is new to my taste buds. The bitterness of the green tea complements the sweet cream


The raspberry float is so refreshing! The berry twist is just perfect for the smooth and creamy vanilla ice cream.

You can also find imported sodo like Dr.Pepper and a lot more.

Let’s Move & Let’s Love


Let’s Move & Let’s Love

      I consider myself a lucky mom for having an adorable boy named Zachery Wynn. It was a 360 degrees turn when I had him because I have to start a more mature role and a more meaningful life. It has always been my dream to become a good mother and to raise him well. Wynn is turning 2 this October and I decided it will just be a simple celebration. Maybe cake and spaghetti will do.His first birthday has been extravagant as we need to make it memorable since it is his first. He celebrated it at Shakey's with almost 100 guests. Although we can still do the same this year, I wanted to take a different route and celebrate it in a more inspiring way. I'm thinking of feeding at least 100 street children to make them feel love and to share some of my blessings to them. I want to teach Wynn how to appreciate what he have and share even a small portion of it.

Above is Wynn's 1st birthday party wearing his Superman costume. He was my super boy and my one and only super hero!
This picture was taken last Valentine's day when we had lunch at Eastwood.

Just like the picture above, I hope Wynn's upcoming celebration can make the less fortunate ones feel that they are loved. Even people they do not know personally can show them love and affection. And Wynn at an early age can do it too in his own simple way. After all, Wynn can have all the things and foods that he wanted. But the street children can seldom eat on a daily basis. They lack not just the basic things but even emotional needs. I still need to coordinate with different social institution to make this a reality. If this will push through, Wynn will be proud of himself 10 or 15 years after because at a young age, he was able to sacrifice one birthday party and turn it into something that is even more memorable.

We can all make a difference. As they say, it only takes a small amount of time and money to help out the needy. We can all start loving and touching lives. What simple acts do you have in mind? Let's move and let's spread the love!

Energizer and Nuffnang bring you “The Amazing Spider-Man”

Energizer and Nuffnang bring you “The Amazing Spider-Man”

Energizer and Nuffnang power my life through the amazing services that they render. Energizer has been known for its ever reliable line of products. Although almost all of the gadgets and appliances now are powered by electricity, we still can't get away with the little things that makes our day easier and more comfortable. Alarm clocks may sound old school now a days because of the built in alarm for every cellphone. But let's admit it, this tiny, classic alarm clock is still the one that wakes us on time. Even in times of emergency like typhoons, we cannot forget batteries in our lists of to buy items. This will later be useful when the electricity fails to supply us with light.

As a blogger, I try to capture all the small details as much as I could. Sometimes words are not enough to describe the wonders of nature, the distinct taste of a cuisine, or even to describe someone or something dear to us. But photos can't lie and they can even make a stronger statement. If a place looks boring or a food tastes nasty, it all shows up in the photo. And how can you go on without dependable batteries? What a hassle would it be not to take the prefect shot because your camera's battery is out of life? Moments like these are worth capturing and sharing with the world.

I have been working with Nuffnang for a few months and I see how it helped me improve when it comes to writing. Contests like this drives enthusiasm, arouses our imagination and forms a competitive nature. I was lucky to bag 2 tickets for an advance movie screening and was happy to meet fellow bloggers with same interest but different wavelength. Our common ground which is writing is what binds us together and the difference in line of thinking creates diversity and uniqueness.

This year, the much awaited movie will be shown in theaters. Spider-Man has a personality that combines a strong & unique personality with a great love & concern for mankind.



Peter Parker (Garfield) is an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. -Written by Columbia Pictures

Review: MAC Blush In Coygirl

Review: MAC Blush In Coygirl



 




I got a really nice gift from someone dear to me! I finally got a new blush from MAC in Coygirl. It is a sheer blush and the color from the pan can be deceiving. It looks like a plum but once applied to the skin, it turns into a   cool sheer pinkish violet color. I used to buy a lot of lusher in bubble gum pink shade but eventually wanted a lilac blush. 

I used to think that lilac won't look good on the apples of the cheeks but having this in my collection changed my perspective. This blush results in natural, pretty flush cheeks. It glides smoothly so you can easily build the intensity according to your preference. The tip is to get just a small amount and do the blending. Apply more if you would like to intensify the color.




Avon Mineral Foundation In Light Ochre: Product Review

Avon Mineral Foundation In Light Ochre: Product Review




We all know that the first thing in achieving a flawless skin is to invest in good foundations. All the high end brands are truly dependable but having an inexpensive mineral foundation that serves the same purpose is always a winner.

Avon Smooth Minerals foundation can measure up to all the expensive mineral make ups out there. The powder is so refined and glides easily to the skin to create a naturally looking smooth skin. The good thing about mineral make up is that it looks more natural.

It covers imperfections and does not feel heavy on the skin. I also feel that my pores can breath, hence preventing clogging of the skin. It comes with a hint of shimmer to give an extra glow all over the face.

On the left is how it looks like when applied to the skin and on the right is a picture when it is already blended

Snow White Premier

Snow White Premier

It was actually my first time to attend an advance movie screening and everything turned out good except the heavy rains that made it difficult to reach my work place. The event was attended by hundreds of co-bloggers sponsored by Skin White and Nuffnang. The movie contained almost 90% of the classic fairy tale except for some twist that made the story more interesting. The plot and setting was fine and I felt like I was really in the old era. Their costumes are really nice and the characters are all great. To be honest, the stepmother of Snow White is so beautiful! Very classy and can represent the "Woman of the world" image. Someone who is not just gorgeous but was able to surpass a lot of trials in life. A strong willed woman who always gets what she wants because of perseverance. But what do we expect for villains in the movie? Of course they have to be defeated. Overall, I find the movie amazing but somehow felt that Snow White and the huntsman's love story is yet to bloom. Maybe in a sequel, we'll see!

Snow White Tickets

I was writing for blog sites and web sites but I've never join any contests yet. When I saw an online contest, I decided to give it a try. I was not really hopeful because I knew there were hundreds who joined the contest. Receiving an email saying that I won two premier tickets is so sweet! It's not really the prize that I am after but the experience that I gained which will never measure up to any material consolation. Thanks Skin White and Nuffnang. See you at the premier on June 1st.
