Gilbey's Premium Strength

Just like Tanduay Ice, I tried a bottle of Gilbey's Premium Strength with Green Tea Extract for blogging's sake. I have read raves about these two drinks that I had to taste them for myself.

I loved the fizz it made when I poured it over ice cubes!

But even at only 7% alcohol content, this mix is already quite strong for me. I would have wanted it a bit more citrusy, more sweet. Well, I don't really drink. So I think my opinion doesn't really matter.

Gap Blue: Thanks, BFF!


My dearest friend came back from a month's trip this summer with her hubby and kids and she got me this pretty pasalubong I'm so excited to use.

Thanks, BFF!

I love pasalubongs. It doesn't really matter whether it was the cheapest item on the shelf, or that it was on sale or that it was the only little thing they can afford. It is in knowing that that there was that very moment when you were remembered that makes pasalubongs truly special. As the saying goes, it is the thought that counts.

Natalac Malunggay Capsules

Malunggay has always been known to help nursing moms produce more milk for their newborns when added to any soupy dish. A lot of people can vouch for this.

Sure enough, bright minds came up with the idea of making malunggay readily available by making them into capsule form that can be taken anytime, anywhere.

Although it has no therapeutic claim, neither does it have adverse effects, so what is there to lose if you try it! Well, if you are lactating, that is. ;)

Margaux And Her Litter

Our furbaby is now a furmommy! Margaux's waiting is finally over. After 63 days, she gave birth to 4 cute rottweiler puppies!

The birthing and the nurturing process were truly amazing to watch.

Margaux has superb mothering instincts.

And now, everyday, we watch as the puppies grow big and strong.

... from the day they start to breathe to the day they first opened their eyes...

Now on their first month of life, the puppies are learning to explore and socialize. And we are enjoying their company every single day. I hope they are, too.

Watson's Lip Ice Lip Conditioner

A dear friend recommended this. And I am glad I listened to her.

I have always believed that not all good things are expensive. And this just proves it. It is very affordable at 145php; and does what it promises to. Conditions the lips and gives 'em a sheer pink tint.

It is just the right size for me. I want lip glosses small and compact so I could have a fresh new tube all the time. Big tubes take too long to use up and the wax just doesn't feel, taste nor smell nice anymore after a while.
I just wish it had spf properties.

Thor in 3D

I am glad I let my hubby talk me into watching Thor in 3D. The movie is well written, has a great cast and showcases great special effects!
I can't wait for the next Marvel movie!

KFC's Chicken A La King


For 90php, you can enjoy this Chicken A La King Supreme Bowl of KFC! I ordered this to-go for dinner and I liked it! The chicken slices were boneless, thus, were much easier to eat. Buttered corn kernels came with it on the side... and I love their mushroom gravy/sauce poured over the dish. I would have loved more of the gravy, though. Maybe I could get an extra serving of their mushroom gravy next time.

Twistix Potato

It is potato with a twist; literally, that is. :))

We were going to watch Thor at Market Market the other day and I went around the mall looking for a snack to bring with us inside the moviehouse.
I saw this Twistix Potato booth and got interested with the way the potato snack is presented.

Huge potatoes are sliced thinly in a corkscrew fashion like so, skewered and deep fried to a perfect crunch.



The potatoes sit for a while and are allowed to drip off excess oils; then they get the final touch... powdered flavor gets drizzled over them.
I can't wait for our next movie date if only to get another helping of Twistix Potato.

Starbucks' Cake Pops

Cake pops are the cutest things in dessertlandia these days. I purposely visited Starbucks just so I could try some. Three variants were available that day... the pink, the brown and the white ones. I was pretty sure the brown one was Rocky Road, but I forgot to ask what the pink and the white ones were called.
Starbucks' Cake Pops

All the cake pops I bought were made of chocolate cake and were very very sweet! I was surprised that the icing wasn't brittle nor crumbly, but soft. The cake was very moist and chewy.

Starbucks' Cake Pops
It was most certainly a sugar rush with every nibble... every bite. It was way too sweet for me. But it was fun to try.

Jollibee's Crispy Chicken Burger

Something new from Jollibee, again. Hubby tried it and he said it was okay. Nothing really special there, but okay.

Blogging Jollibee

When I asked how it tasted, he just simply said, "It is like chicken joy in a bun!" I loved Jollibee's Chunky Chicken sandwich before; I hope to try this one next time to see if I would love it just as much.

Tong Yang Shabu Shabu Restaurant

Tong Yang Buffet
The buffet rates may have gone up since the last time we have been there, but it is good to know that the food choices and the quality have not changed.

I had so much on my plate already that I wasn't able to try their meat slicing station where you can get your meat cut up to your liking. Maybe next time.

Tong Yang Buffet

The best part for me was still the grilling part where I got to dump in everything I got from the buffet into the smokeless grill and cook them in tons of butter to my desired doneness! (Go easy on the butter, though.) A pot of broth of our choice was given and brought to a boil on our stovetop where greens and meats and fish may be cooked, too, but I always prefer the griller to that.
