Clap Your Hands

Hey you guys! I know I haven't been updating and visiting once again. Blame it to my KPOP addiction. I'm on tumblr, dramasub or dramacrazy most of the time, so yeah. I'm feeding my K-obsession even more these days. Before you raise your brow there and think that I do not do anything productive at all, well I tell you.. I do have something that keeps me productive. Aside from managing the expenses at home (which, btw, is so hard to do. Ugh), I, also, am still writing for this online community that I mentioned few blogs ago. So far, i already earned 4K+. I started August 11 and I think it's not bad. I even feel that if I seriously do it and allot at least 5 hours a day for writing, I'm going to earn a good amount of money. But my it's also hard working at home. I am always tempted to watch some drama online. Pfffttt.

So anyway, as part of my Ate duty, I went to Kiara's school few days ago to get her report card. Her grades aren't exceptional but her adviser told me that she's doing great for a transfer student. I half smiled because she transferred last year and the teacher was talking to me as if Kiara transferred just this year. I'm happy for Kiara because she has a lot of friends in LaCo. I can see that she's enjoying there so much. But you know, I'm kinda wooried because she is being more and more maarte by the minute. lol.

Me || Me|| Me
So this is how I looked like when I went to Kiara's grade giving day. I just wanted to dress up a little because I'm always at home. Wearing big shirts or tank top + shorts, no comb hair or messy bun. I miss going out and dressing up. One thing I miss the most about work is the dressing up part.

That's the happy and satisfied me || Empty Pasta and Chicken Boxes || Empty Pizza Box
For tonight, we had Yellow Cab for dinner. We just love their pizza and chicken alfredo like that. Actually, I wanted to eat somewhere else, for a change, but I didn't win over my siblings. They wanted to eat there. Like, always. :-s. In foods, we're like that. We tend to get addicted to this certain food for some time. We eat that, and just that until we get tired of it and eventually find other food too get addicted to. Like at home, it was pancakes few weeks ago. We ate pancakes for breakfast and merienda. And now we're currently addicted to potato salad. We eat make potato salad at least once a day. lol. So back at Yellow Cab.. We had 14" Four Seasons, 2 orders of Chicken Alfredo and Spicy Chicken Wings. Busog!

Cafe Ti Amo || Krispy Kreme || Etude House || My New Babies (lol)
I chose to go to SM Manila instead of SM San Lazaro because 1) I am so sick of SMSL already. And 2) I wanted to visit Etude House in SM Manila. And to my suprise, suprise.. There's Cafe Ti Amo.. It is where Pho Hoa was located. Aww. We used to eat at Pho Hoa all the time when we were in college. I'm going back there and try their gelatos! And there's Krispy Kreme, too. SM Manila has changed a lot from the last time I visited. So of course, I went to buy something at Etude House. Hee. I bought 2 colors of Nail Polish. It's more expensive than The Face Shop. The Face Shop's 95php each bottle while I got those two for 322php. I love the colors. You can't really see the actual colors of those two in the pictures. I can't find my camera at the moment, my phone saved he day! :))

So I guess this is enough for now. Good night, everyone.

Wow. Tell me about that writing stint ate! I could use some extra source of income! Poverty days ako ngayon!=))

Mahal naman nung nail polish! Haha! Is it any good? Worth it naman?

Love the outfit. I used to love dressing up but now I cringe just thinking about it! =)))))) Baliktad tayo. =))) Haaay kaialangan ko lang siguro ng mga bagong masusuot para ganahan ulit ako mag dress up.

Angie said…
To please share me your writing stints :) I can really use the extra income right now.

I envy you so much. Ako hindi ako makapag-dress up sa work kasi naman meron kaming uniform and sobrang boring na.

I just wished makahanap ako ng work outside the Academe.
ishna said…
ALEX - I'll message you the website on facebook!And yung nail polish is medyo pricey nga compared to the Face Shop, but it's worth it naman! Their polishes dry up faster than the others that I've tried! And thanks!! I feel the same way. I feel like I need new set of clothes, too! Let's go shopping!lmao

ANGIE - I'll message you the website, too! It's a good source of extra money! :D

Anyway, you really look pretty :) I love dressing up as well. It's my way of expressing myself.

And oh, thanks.

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
