Staycation at Belmont Hotel Manila + Annie The Musical at Resorts World Manila

I started a tradition last year to have staycations instead of holding parties during my birthday. That way, I can get to relax and unwind by myself or celebrate with a smaller group. I sent my parents and friends to Discovery Shores Boracay during my birthday weekend last 2015. For this year, I decided to spend it with my sister at Belmont Hotel in Newport City, across Resorts World Manila. For our first meal, we had a heavy brunch at Cafe Belmont. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since I’ve never heard of the restaurant prior to my stay. But ORead more

It just goes to show that in barkadas, it’s always better with the #UltimateBarkadaBlend. That’s why we recommend the best barkada pizza around – the Ultimate Overload by Greenwich!

Physiogel Daily Defence Apple Experiment

I’m sure you’re wondering, “What does an apple have to do with skin care?”. Well, I tried out an experiment to see the difference of using the right sunscreen brand VS a cheaper face cream. I’m currently using Physiogel Daily Defence with SPF 15 so I’ll use that and a moisturizer that I bought from the drugstore. You can try it out yourself by preparing the following items: Physiogel® Daily Defence Protective Day Cream Light SPF 15 Any facial cream for comparison (I’ll call mine “Brand X”) Apple Knife STEP ONE: Cut the apple into half, revealing two equal innerRead more

Contadina by Del Monte x Nigella Lawson

One fact about myself that is not prominent in my blog (because it’s mostly about makeup and travel) is that I LOVE to cook. I’ve never had any formal training of any sort in the kitchen but I think I inherited my mom’s special ability to whip up fantastic dishes without looking at the recipe. We never measure our ingredients so we base it on taste and estimate it ourselves. My favorite thing to experiment on is always pasta dishes. It’s the easiest thing to cook up especially when it’s unplanned and I need to feed all the hungry stomachsRead more

Makati Shangri-la’s SAGE Sunday Grill Buffet

One of the perks of growing up in a Chinese household is having parents who are obsessed with hotel buffets. I don’t know about other families but the friends I grew up with also experienced the same. Weekends meant having feasts – it was our way of bonding instead of going to the movies. My mom is constantly on the hunt for the latest hotel membership cards that can give us discounts and exclusive promos. We’ve been Gourmet card (Shangrila Hotels) holders for years now because we love their restaurants so I let my mom tag along with me toRead more
