What To Do In Davao: Visit Eden Nature Park

When in Davao, one thing that I suggest is to allot a day to visit and enjoy Eden Nature Park. Its95%man made forest. Man made because decades ago, in the early 70s, this part of Barangay Eden was a victim of illegal logging. What the Ayalas of Davao did was to restore it by planting trees and now, more and more people are able to experience a wonderful life in a forest. 

We arrived at the park before lunch time. We decided to have buffet lunch first. Food was okay, notexceptional, but it was okay. What I loved most was one of the desserts, the Camote-Ube Float! 

Although the buffet lunch was not exceptionally good, the view at their buffet area is really good! It's a glass type restaurant and the green view is amazing! It really feels refreshing there!

After lunch, we had the chance to see the whole place. It is advisable to join the shuttle tour because it is impossible to see the whole place by walking, especially if you're beating the time! The shuttle tour lasted for 45 minutes - 1 Hour.  You can enjoy their shuttle tour for photo ops with the beautiful flowers, watch a mini show & get an overview on how Lumad's live their lives and last stop of the mini tour was to get a closer look at the forest and the herb gardens.

And of course, after the tour, we headed to the activities area to try the rides! I was most excited to ride the Sky Cycle and I was not disappointed. It was actually a good thing that it was a two way ride. First ride was really nerve wracking, but the second ride was really fun! I enjoyed the view! 

I wanted to try the Sky Swing, good thing my partner said no. When we were watching the brave souls who went for it, we couldn't help but feel a lot of things for them. lol. We were admiring them for being so brave, we felt bad because they were so afraid up there, we were happy because, well, it was fun to watch them having fun but screaming their hearts out!

We actually have swimming in our list of activities but their pool is only open until 5PM. We decided to just head back to the hotel and rest for a bit before going out for dinner. 

Buffet Lunch: P550.00
Shuttle Tour: P120.00
Sky Cycle: P200.00
Sky Rider: P120.00
Sky Swing: P300.000 (Solo) / P400.00 (Tandem)

For me, it's great to see new places, people and new adventures. Keep doing what you're doing!

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&#…
