Legend of India

     Months ago, Brian purchased 2 vouchers from Cashcashpinoy (you can read my post here) it's a buffet on Legend of India. We made a supreme goal to try as many resto's as we can. First Brian was hesitant in purchasing the voucher because of the bad customer service, but then, hunger striked and the eagerness to try the food made him to bulge in. Actually you have to make a reservation first before you go there. We had a hard time last Saturday  because we only commuted--lrt2--mrt--bus--jeep--walk,actually we almost got lost, we walked the long street of Jupiter where the Center Stage is also located.

      At first we entered a wrong establishment, they said that their buffet is only available at weekdays, It was really dissapointing because I thought that Brian made some clarifications regarding the time, date and the availability of the voucher the last time he called them. We gave the voucher to the staff, we were really in a distressed situation knowing that we traveled that far just to have a dinner date. And then humiliation comes, actually we got into the wrong door, the Legend of India is at the next door, so without further ado, we bid goodbye to the staff and apologized, haha so much stress.

     We entered and then we made ourselves comfortable by sitting. Pictures will tell the experience:

classy, sophisticated interior

at first I thought that only a few dine here, my mistake, that night was jam-packed :)

super eat na :) super spicy green sauce, eeh :l

it's like a pita bread, super great with dip

plate ni brian haha, abstract ang dating :)

the buffet table

our plates--a disaster :))

     When we started eating, the food is not that hot, they only started turning on the heating paraphernalia when people started to come in, I can say that Indian food is not for me, there's this certain taste that my taste buds hate. Most of their food are curry based, and the only food that I love is the Chicken Tapia? I forgot, it tastes like chicken curry, Brian loved the fish curry. I was dissapointed, I'm sure that the food is much more delicious if we ordered straight from their menu and not on the buffet table, well who could blame them, we only got to try it out through the vouchers. Moreover, most of the dish are mixed with potatoes, I don't like it. Aww, better luck next time. more restaurants to try soon :) Legend of India is located at 114B Jupiter St., Bel-air II  Makati  City 1209 (02 836 4232)

     We started to wander the streets, we saw a lot of nightclubs and hotels, we went back to the Jupiter street and had some fun Karaoke at the Music 21 for one hour, it's only 84 pesos/per head/per hour, so we decided to give it a try since we're not in the mood yet to go home. Atleast we had some fun and quality time together :) super BITIN :)) Might try it out again next time, once that I'm in a state of being a singer :P
while waiting for our turn, we're the first one to wait :)

     That's it, it's already 3:02 in the morning, I need to sleep cause my class will be at 1:30 in the afternoon, I shouldn't be late. Have a great start of the week lovelies! :)) Wish me luck on class :) Goodmornight :)

a year to cherish

     I'm back, now seriously, I want to tell you a lot of things, I'm back to school now :) Actually i had a hard time adjusting, it's like that it's been years that I haven't experienced a city with so much noise, smoke and people (haha i'm exaggerating). It felt like I was in a middle of a rummage. Good thing my friends still loves me haha :) The perks of being back again with your friends, they're the best thing in this world <3 I didn't have a hard time contemplating on what to do. BLA BLA BLA.... I was into reading blogs for the past few weeks, and I'm starting to forget that I too, have my own blog :) I'm into full recovery right now, have to take care of myself now that I am away with my mom, and here with me is my sister, she's working so she's busy so I really do need to be careful and take a lot of rest.

     Nowadays, I'm into playing Left 4 Dead 2, you know, the zombies game wherein of course you have to finish all those zombies with the available weapons all over the place, boyish right? Actually it's my first time to get hooked on something like this,  because I really don't like it when boyfie plays the game DOTA, now it's vice versa :P Oh well, I understand now why boys are into playing these games, it's very addictive :) I play it with my classmates after our class we're a team :)), that's why I always come home late, need to change that routine before I sink :P WARNING! Heh.

     Anyways, just want to share with you guys some pictures from our first anniversary date with my boyfie last November 14. We ate at Gumbo and for dessert at Krispy Kreme at Cubao :)

Parisian Bread w/ Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic


Roasted pork with fries and mixed veggies

the view outside with the giant Christmas tree :)

     Great service, the one who assisted us was Sophia, thank you again, very warm and friendly crew. Great food, although I find the taste of the Cajun rice weird, but boyfie loved it so much, he even got half of my rice to satisfy his hunger, boys talaga, super matakaw :P The fries was seasoned with barbecue flavor, yummy but oily, Calamari was super delish, especially with the dip, HEAVEN :p Of course, the best part Roasted pork, more like Spare Ribs---BITIN :)

     After that, our tummy was super full, we decided to walk around, my feet was aching because of my school shoes so I decided to go to SM Cubao to buy slippers :) Then we went to Krispy Kreme for our dessert :)

Caramel Latte, Apple Skruffle? and Chocolate chip :)
     My all time favorite, Caramel frappes, latte's anything haha :) Of course super thumbs up :) Had a great night with him, looking for more annivs to come. That's how we celebrated ours :)

     Hope you had a great weekend everyone, Monday is the day tomorrow :) Positive Vibes please :)

health is wealth/ face mask review

      Today, I feel so happy, know why? Because finally, my tube is gooone thanks to my ever patient doctor :)) I can go back to Manila and study again. I remember those student's tantrums that they are lazy enough to go to school. Well I learned something, once you're out, you'll surely gonna miss it! Guaranteed! As a student, I will cherish more my life with my studies, friends, professors and of course, my allowance :p My Economics professor once said " Enjoy your life while you're still a student, getting allowance, going to school without a problem on paying tuition fees, you'll surely gonna miss it and maybe freak out that once you're in the corporate world ". I'll keep that in mind sir :)

      About the post's title, I can now prove that health is wealth. The statement defines itself. Lovelies, please do take care of yourself, ALWAYS :) Start living healthy and be happy always! Life is short, soo please let's live a healthy lifestyle.
   In connection with living happy lifestyle, why not try to pamper yourselves right? Everybody deserves to have a relaxation and leisure time. Time to prettify ladies :))  I already tried the face mask from the face shop ( a sponsored review), I actually had to do the "eenie-meenie--miney-moo" in order for me to choose which face mask I will be using, my finger ended up on the Mung beans face mask, but still I chose the Aloe Vera, haha! Do you experience it when you have to choose by the song and ended up choosing what you really want? This happens to me all the time :)

     Anyways, here's my review of the face mask:

      Since it's my first time to use, I cleaned my face first with some cleansing bar to get rid of any unnecessary dirt or make-up, you might want to use headbands or some hair holding caps to get rid of the bangs while using the mask. I opened the pack and got the mask, very wet, the mask was folded many times so I had to be really careful in unfolding the masks, you don't wanna ruin the mask by being careless. I placed the mask on my face, I figured out that masks are made bigger in order to suit different shapes and sizes of the face, but because my face is not too big, excess mask was all over my hair and the chin and the sides of my cheeks. I really don't know how to use mask whether I should leave it and wake up the next morning or if it's only for 30 mins. etc. I can't understand what is written at the back of the mask, it's written in Korean form or something. I saw "15-20", I assumed that it is the time wherein you have to wait before you take off the mask

     The Real Nature Mask Aloe Vera ( extract grounded from fresh aloe vera 1,000mg contained). A soothing / hydrating mask sheet containing aloe extract, which hydrates and soothes the skin with a rich sense of moisturization, to provide instant care to puffy and sensitive skin.

I will rate the mask on some basic standards based on it's quality and my experience:
  •  Feeling: The mask has a minty effect, for me. Very wet and slimy. No itchy feeling or any other.
  •  Smell: The mask has an Aloe Vera smell/ cucumber. No too strong, very mild and pleasant.
  •  User friendliness: Had a very moderate difficulty on unfolding the masks, I'm a first timer so it's  not a   problem, eventually, I'll get used to it.
  •  Efficiency: The aloe vera liquid was absorbed by my face, I think that it really makes the face hydrated  and smooth and soft.
  • Side effect: Nothing.
  • Over-all rating: 5/5
    Since there's more aloe vera liquid left on the pack and on the mask, I whipped it up and applied to my skin, since it's good for the face, then it's definitely good for the skin right? That's being practical. :) Earlier this morning, my face is still soft and moisturized, ahh love every bit :) My face is refreshed from all those chemicals from the make-up and environmental factors, I still have the mask on the pack, it's still wet up to now, I'm not gonna use it again (don't worry) I just needed to get the right information before I throw it away. Since I don't know how much it costs (any idea?) surely, your money gets the best quality :)
     That's it, hope I got you the right information and helped you. Thank God it's friday, yes it is! Have a great weekend everyone! Take care! :))

P.S Who will be going at the Super Sale Bazaar at the World Trade Center? Bazaar starts today, hopefully I can drop by maybe on tomorrow or on the 6th :) Tell me okay? :)

the face shop--face masks

      Earlier this morning, i received a note coming from the postal office, at first I was thinking what package are they pertaining, and I remember, it must be (the) thebeautyphase's face masks from the face shop that they sent me to make a review and to try them myself :) So, before going to the hospital for my scheduled x-ray, I dropped by at the Post office first to check out my parcel :)

   Here is the package, came all the way from Singapore:

     I got 6 masks to review:

cereal black soybean mask sheet

real nature mask aloe vera

fresh fruit punica mask sheet

living nature mask mung bean

cereal rice mask sheet

living nature mask olive

     Since I am new in using face masks, I will try one by one and will try to do some reviews,honestly, I only use moisturizers for my face, and of course a cleansing bar to clean my face from the make-up. I am a not a professional when it comes to skin regimen, but hey, some of the best reviews still come from the people without further or who has little knowledge/ first timers when it comes to beauty/skin care. Anyhow, have you tried any of these face masks? How was the outcome? Tell me :)

     My x-ray was all done today, I'm soo happy with the result! Yes at last, further step to enrollment, tomorrow will go to the hospital again, can't imagine that it turned out to be my 2nd home, haha, anyways, Christmas season is coming, I can smell the spirit of Christmas. Hope you guys are having a great week, stay safe :)
