Beyond Blogs

I decided to bring this blog back to life. HOOORAAYYY!! I know I have been MIA for almost a year now, but I am going to make it up to you, my dear blog. Blogging is an important part of my life. During those times when I did not have anyone to talk to, blogging kept me company. I might not have updated this blog, but I was blogging somewhere out. It's not a blog that I would want other people to read, tho. It's more of like a real diary. Full of emotional outbursts, overly dramatic entries and such. So uh, yeah, you better not know the link to that blog.

And the best way to, once again, jump start this blog? Of course, talk about the friends I made through blogging! I started blogging, 2005 but I got really hooked on blogspot in 2008. And through my PoshProbinsyana (yeahsureyoucanlaughatmyblogsname) blog, I've made so many online friends. I lost contact with some of those online friends already, but there's still a lot more whom I'm still connected to. And two of the closest friends that I made through blogging are Apple and Kring. I became online friends with Apple back in 2008, when I was just starting my old blog. Kring, I think I became friends with her around 2009, or maybe the latter part of 2008. Not really sure. Haha!

So anyway, last Saturday, I met up with Apple and Kring for dinner. It's always fun to just sit, eat and have conversation with friends.

So yeah, that's Apple, Kring and me, of course. Arianne was supposed to with us but she couldn't make it. We had dinner at Banapple NorthEast Square in Greenhills. I didn't know there's a Banapple there! :))

I ordered Baked Creamy Cheese Penne. I love anything pasta, I love anything with cheese! And this one had a lot of cheese, I was a happy kid with a happy tummy!

Kring ordered Lasagna Roll. I will most probably order this on my next visit! It looked so delicious! I was not able to take a photo of Apple's food because she already started eating I arrived.

I wish I wore a belt too. The outfit looked a little empty. Lol.

It felt so good that we were able to catch up. I just love these girls! We're all so different but we get along well. That's how it is on the intrawebs, we meet a lot of different people. We may have differences and all that, but we still can get along! It's so fascinating how we all just met online and now we're actually hanging out. We don't just talk through blogger comments or Haloscan (I miss Haloscan!!)! And we do not just talk about our recent blog posts. Right now, we can comfortably share with each other the things which we cannot blog. The things that can only be shared with friends. Real friends.:)

Can't wait for our next catch up day!

It's ten at night here in Bkk and I am so hungry looking at those two dishes.

I wish I could also find people whom I can share my love of blogging. I do not comment much but I read a lot.

Btw, I love the first pic, all pretty!

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&#…
