Dreaming of a baby?! (WOLM? #2)

So I do not know how to share this but last night I had this weird but very enlightening dream.

I have a baby! Yes, real life bouncing baby. O.O

What was crazier was no father was involved. I mean to say I did not see any father in my dream. It was just me and my sister taking care of my little one but I knew who the father was. I felt this sad presence as I thought of who the father was but happy to see this little bundle of pure joy.

Everything was white even what I was wearing. The baby’s face was “angelic” as what they would say but a normal looking one. At first, the baby was helpless but as time passes the baby grew but I never saw the baby awake. He/she was always asleep in my dream. My dream progresses to the baby being a little 5 year old girl (apparently I had a baby girl in my dream) but still she was sleeping by my side not talking or doing anything else.

When I woke up I felt this surge of guilt and sadness and that I wanted to go back to sleep and see the baby ‘coz I felt happy just looking at it and the fact that I had a baby of my own.

Weird right? just wanted to share.

Have any thoughts about it? does it have a meaning?

Long Weekend Madness (L Blogs#1 and Reviews#2)

The long weekend has come and pass. (yet again.) To all my Muslim brothers and sisters, I hope you had a meaningful  Eid’l Adha celebration.

I am very saddened though by the news that the celebration became a disaster in Mecca due to a stampede that killed almost 700 people (please correct me if I am wrong). So enough about current events because we have CNN for that. :)))

What did I do on the long weekend? Okay, lets start.

Cafe Moraco Thursday

My parents went to fetch me ,my brother and sister here in Manila. My brother was very eager to go home because he wants to eat dinner out and my parents, as always, gave in to his request. He wanted to go to a restaurant in or near SM Mall of Asia but we went to Cafe Moraco, Kawit instead.  It was not our first visit on this cafe. It is actually my mother’s favorite place to eat Chicksilog (Chicken, fried rice and fried egg). The place serves great “silogs”,finger foods/ snacks, pastas, frappes and hot beverages. They also have board games that can be borrowed by surrendering your ID to the staff. I think this is a great idea specially in a place that is not a fan of cafes and hanging out at cafes. I would love to take my high school barkada here rather than go to QC for the board games place named Ludo but I might change my mind once we are already there. Haha. Now, I miss them. haha

I just realized as I am writing this post that Cavite is becoming an extension of Metro Manila. It has hip places to hangout at and there are more emerging establishments of the same nature as in Manila. Did i mention Zark’s has a branch in SM Bacoor?

Okay, back to Cafe Moraco. I ordered their pasta specialty that I forgot the name but it has “espanola” on it. It is a spaghetti dish with spanish sardines and an oil based sauce. It’s good.  I like the spicy kick it has. For drinks, I ordered an almond frappe. That also tastes so good and very refreshing.

What caught my sister’s and eventually my parent’s attention is Tatsi’s Frappe. My mama and papa were figuring out how to say it and I guess my father being an ass as he is thought of it as something disgusting (shit!). Yes, I am kind of embarrassed and impressed by how he thought about it. I am very sorry to the waiter that was taking our order and to the admin for his behavior and reaction. My mother then asked why it is called that way and the waiter told us that Tatsi is the owner’s grandfather. Thanks Mama for making it more awkward. That was the bad highlight of our visit there. Until now when I remember it, it makes me sorry  for my father’s thinking.

Overall…

Green Inferno Friday

That morning went by so fast. I woke up and had a quick breakfast and took a bath. It was because we had to take our pooches to the vet for check-ups. We had 3 dogs with us and left 4 at home. If you want to call animal hoarders go ahead but we love and take care of them all so it is not really hoarding.  Our priority was our little Pomspitz, Cookie, she got bit by our Chow chow, Bart, hard and she badly needs medical attention. We already gave her antibiotics and vitamin B but ma and my sister think its best to go to the vet. We were early when we got there and the vet was not there yet. She did arrive and told us that Cookie needs to be brought to a special vet because the bite is very severe. 😦 I was deeply saddened by hearing this because my parents won’t go to Alabang or Tagaytay to take her there. So there. We are currently giving her more antibiotics and Yaya is taking good care of her. She looks better when we left her Monday morning. She just needs to get her appetite back. The other two dogs only had deworming and were healthy and happy that they went out.

When I got home I rested a bit and had plans of going out at 3pm to watch a movie with the one and only Brickmerch (visit his site clicky clicky) We planned to see a movie that Saturday but we changed plans and met each other on a Friday instead. Heneral Luna was the one on our list but when I saw Green Inferno is showing at SM Bacoor we went there and watched that movie instead. Ahahaha.the_green_inferno-2

The movie itself was not in the horror category in my opinion. It was more of gore. The movie did not have much of a deep story but what caught my attention was the editing of the movie itself. The saturation of the colors specifically red was so saturated that it made the tribe bloody red. I fell in love with the coloring of fillm. And how sharp the picture was. My tip is to wait for the credits to end because there is a surprise at the end. 😉

My movie verdict is:3 starsI had a great time that Friday as usual. 😀

Laidback Saturday and Sunday

These two days went by so fast. Specially Saturday. The only highlight I could think of is the Aldub episode. Ahahahaha. #kiligmuch. I do think the episode last Saturday was better than the one this Saturday. Okay, I follow the infamous love team. They make me laugh but all the efforts and kudos to Wally Bayola who really does the funny parts of the “Kalyeserye”.

Sunday was all about the family. We went to church at SM Rosario and went straight to the supermarket as soon as the mass ended. I was able to convince my mother that I want to buy ingredients for Apple crumble and she agreed but I think she regretted that she allowed me. It is just a trial one. I think ill be able to pull it off the next time I make it. I just need more sugar and butter in my life. Ahaha. We also made meatballs which was brother approved. 😀

I like cooking. It makes me happy but I do not think I can cook well enough yet. I need more practice and more cookbooks to read to be able to be a good cook.

I also practiced some photoshop tweeks and also pencil drawings. :))) I need more practice.

Still in the process of but im so excited to show all of you the final result soon. :D

Still in the process of  finishing it but I am so excited to show all of you the final results soon. 😀

I guess that is all I did during this long weekend. I hope you enjoyed reading my adventures as much as I love writing it all for all you 😀

Menow Long lasting lip gloss review (L Reviews #1)

Hey all! Finally the first blog review that I have been excited about! So here it goes….

I choose this great product that has been making a little noise all over the internet specifically on youtube and the western part of the world. It is Menow long lasting lip gloss

IMG20150923104826

 I actually received an email from an online shop I am a loyal buyer of. I was intrigued by the “low-cost”  lip gloss link and clicked it. I am and will always be on a tight budget that is why that email grabbed my attention. haha.I really wanted to have a liquid type of lipstick or lip tint for this gradient lip look I was crazy about and I wanted to try out on myself.

The truth is, I was hesitant to buy it. So before I purchased it, like most of you who are reading this, I searched the net for reviews, swatches and even vlog reviews of it. I admit I am a little paranoid with my purchases. After 3 weeks of “extensive” reading and watching I decided to purchase and try it on myself. Personally, it was not a loss for me. It is a great investment in my small but growing kikay kit. I also think this product is more of a liquid lipstick rather than a lip gloss.

IMG20150923104851

Sorry for the blurry picture. My camera isnt the best. Yet. :)))

The shades I got are #26, #33, and #36. I first purchased #36 just so I could try it out for myself. It is a vibrant pink that is perfect for the look I was experimenting with that time. I did find myself wanting different shades for different looks so I bought #26 a peachy nude shade and #33 a dark red “vampire-ish” shade.

Here is my attempt at swatching the lipgloss:

IMG20150923105040

All of the products I got are matte and my current favorite is #26. For the gradient korean lips I do like #36’s shade.For a darker look. #33. I have not yet tried it outside but I think this shade is best for a night look or a more seductive or mature look like for business meetings but not for a job interview.

I went out the other day with #26 applied to my lips. I was worried that it was already removed from my lips after 15 minutes because clumsy ‘ol me kind of touched my lips with a tissue while wiping my face and I saw a little color on the tissue but as I checked myself on the nearest mirror most of the color is still on my lips. Despite the commute and all the walking, when I went home around 7pm most of the color is still on my lips. The product that was removed was only at the inner part of my lips due to me eating sweet and sour sizzling tofu at my friendly carinderia (Yes, ‘coz I am ghetto like that and I like home cooking.) So I think its long lasting enough for at least 3 hours or more.

After I took the picture of the swatches on my arm I had a hard time removing the lip gloss using regular soap and water but when I applied lotion on it and used cotton(just like what I did to remove it on my lips). It was removed easily within a few seconds.

Quick TIP!

Use regular lotion to remove make up from your face. It has the same result as a make up remover and it will leave your face/ skin moisturize and soft. 😀 I use Cetaphil lotion for sensitive skin.

I have read on some blogs that it dried up their lips but for me I think it is just the sensation of the dried lip gloss on the lips. It is good to put on a layer of lip balm before applying the product on your lips but do not expect it to be as long lasting as it is. I put my lip balm after applying the lip gloss and it lasted longer. 🙂  Maybe it is just different from every person’s lips but for me it did not dry my lips.

Overall these are my Pros and Cons 😀

 Pros:

 Cons:

  • very cheap only 130php at Beautymnl.com and 149php at ensogo
  • transfer-proof
  • water-proof
  • long lasting (indeed!)
  • Wide range of colors to choose from
  • The scent: for me it had this chemical scent mixed with a typical cosmetic product scent but maybe it is just me and my preference of smell.
  • No ingredients listed on the tube (it was delivered to me as individual tube.)
  • Only has pinks, reds and nudes as colors
  • Dried up some people’s lips

I think this wraps up my first ever make-up review. I hope it has helped you in trying to find out if Menow lip gloss is the lip gloss/liquid lipstick for you.

Til next review
