Our Askal Is Now An Akita

Our dogs that have breed are already dead because of old age. The ones that are still alive are all Askal breeds. But before Loopa, our chowchow died, he left us with one offspring. He got our askal Narda preggy before. He's name is Diego.

I posted a photo of Diego in Facebook and a friend said that he doesnt look like chowchow and he looks like am Akita instead. So today I declare Diego as an Akita, para sushal. :-)

Spiral, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Re-Opens

Photo from Sofitel Manila's Facebook


          Do you remember this iconic staircase? If you've been to Sofitel Philippine Plaza, you would never forget!

          Before, I used to go so Sofitel whenever I'm feeling low and depressed well not to eat or check-in, Ano, Mayaman?! I just go to the garden and lay down and think for a few hours, in front of Manila Bay I gaze upon the stars, look at planes that are about to land or as they take off and be amazed. Maybe some drinks from Sunset Bar and some Calamari which is to die for. And when I already feel refreshed, I go home. I get 10% discount, don't worry I'm not rich, I'm just a social climbing wanna be. Haha! I spend less than Php800.00 when I go there. It's actually my "tipid" moment but still sosyal di ba? One of these days I'll post something to teach you how to do it, "The Sosy Tipid Moments, TWB Style". But I haven't done that in over a year because the white walls covering the renovation of Spiral restaurant just ruins the moment and ambiance. 

          Another reason why I keep coming back to Sofitel is because of their restaurant, Spiral. This is one of my family's favorite because we have different preference when it comes to food and Spiral offers them all. We celebrate precious moments here like my parents' anniversary, my sister's graduation from Prep, many many! As far as I am concern, its the best hotel buffet restaurant as it offers more than 300 kinds of mouthwatering dishes and why not? Unlimited Pan-Seared Foie Gras anyone? Sadly, I haven't been here for more than a year because it was closed for renovation as it was ruined by Typhoon Pedring last September 2011. Thanks Typhoon Pedring for ruining my 2012 Birthday. But say no more, the long wait is over. 

          After 1 year and 2 months, Sofitel Philippine Plaza announces the re-opening of newly renovated and improved Spiral. This is not going to be your ordinary Buffet Style dining experience at it is now composed of 21 dining ateliers. Every dish that you want to have won't be just sitting there with the imaginary sign of "Hi! Come and get me!" but now, the food will be prepared right before your eyes! So everything you eat are freshly cooked and yes, baked, yes the bread not just the mini chocolate chip cookies. How cool is that? OMG! I just can't wait no more! I remember my plates of Lambchops etcetera! etcetera! 

          Spiral Restaurant officially opens on November 8, 2012 but it's soft opening is on October 29, 2012. These are the new buffet rates (net):

*On Sunday Lunch Buffet, you get to enjoy overflowing Champagne and Sparkling Wine. 
*I suggest you call for a reservation before going to Spiral. The restaurant gets full even before and the "waiting" will kill you.

          As soon as I get the time to dine here again, I will update you. My hopes are high that this is going to be better than before. Haha! Luckily, we have 2 vouchers for Spiral that entitles 50% off for 10 people so I wish to take my Uncles and Titas here. I love dining with them because they are very fun to be with and they will criticize the food really good as my family only eats good food and snob the ugly ones. Haha! 

I cant wait to use you.....................

Village Tavern Philippines x 2

         It's my second time in Village Tavern  in Bonifacio High Street Central. The first time I ate here, I was raving about it because I did have a good time and you can tell it to my first review how satisfied I was. They announced something like a steak sale a week or two ago. A 40% off on steak is a good deal because I know that their steak is really good and I wanted to take advantage of it. Originally my cousin and I planned to eat in Dampa but because of the sale, we opted for Village Tavern instead. But................

Guerlain Rouge G L'Extrait in Colere M25

Guerlain Rouge G L'Extrait in Colere

         I am very happy with this purchase because whenever Guerlain Philippines have a workshop, they offer all Guerlain Products at 20% - 30% off. I had my eye on all L'Extrait shades because I knew since it was internationally launched that I will love it. I bought my first 2 shades the moment someone texted me that its available here already. Then I saw one shade that swept me off my feet. Luckily for me, I received a text message informing me that there'll be a workshop regarding the new L'Extrait and the Blush Duo. My cousin and I knew that there'll be discounts on the items.

           Guerlain Rouge G L'Extrait in Colere or Red for Wrath as described by Guerlain is a shade that is quite hard to describe. When I swatched it on my hand, it appears to me that it is a red-orange lipstick but as it dries, a touch of pink is a bit noticeable. For sure it's a red but not your ordinary red lipstick. This color is so bright it lightens up your skintone. It's neon like brightness is very beautiful as it does not overpower your look but enhances it.  the color is really unique. I can say  that its a mix of coral, pink and red. Its really beautiful. This is my new favorite color whenever I'm lazy to apply make up. Its such a unique beautiful color. 

       The texture is rich and creamy. It has a matte finish but not the kind that gives you a flat color, maybe a very subtle sheen is present. It doesn't make my lips dry unlike most of matte lipsticks I've tried. I just love the formula of L'Extrait. I really hope this becomes refillable as it will break my heart to throw the compact when I finished one tube. This stayed on me for 8 hours even with a meal and a few drinks. It leaves a tint so you don't have to worry because it will never leave you uncovered. 

          This is available in Rustan's Makati and Shangrila, I got this at 20% off so instead of Php2500.00, I only paid Php2000.00. If outside the Philippines, try Sephora. 

Check out more photos and swatches!

Buco Loco Nakakaloka

I bought this today in SM Fairview. It doesn't taste good. It tastes like Niyog not Buko at all. Before it tasted really good before. Favorite ko ang Buko Shake. This can be mixed to Bicol Express or Laing na. Sana uminom nalang ako ng bagong pigang gata.
