Bangkok Day 1 - Where is Chocolate Ville?

When Bangkok gets mentioned, one would probably think about temples, pad thai, relaxing massage, night market, and maybe traffic as well! But cute places and park will not be on top of anyone's thought bubble. I, myself, was pretty surprised and stoked to find a pretty park to visit in BKK.

This trip was my second time in Bangkok and even though I was still excited to re-visit the temples, I wanted to go somewhere different!

So, what is Chocolate Ville? Where is Chocolate Ville?I stumbled upon a blog post about the said place and, I knew that we had to get this on our itinerary! It's a dreamy and pretty park. You do not have to shell out any money should you wish to just look around. Entrance is free! :)

The park opens its doors to visitors at 4PM. It is best to be at the place at 3:30 PM so you can already start taking photos by this windmill and other pretty things before entering the park.

I think we took more than 30 minutes just trying to take the perfect photos by the windmill and in front of this house!


My eyes were overwhelmed by the prettiness of the whole place.It was like living in Barbie Village. It was such a bummer that it rained for more or less half an hour; good thing that Chocolate Ville let the guests borrow umbrellas. Unfotunately we were not able to to much photos when we still had day light. 
We waited for the rain to stop and I found this mirror perfect for #OOTD. :) When the rain finally stopped raining, it was already dark outside.

I didn't take so much photos after it rained. We decided to eat first hoping to revive the energy.

Since the entrance at the park is for free, we already anticipated that the food will be a bit pricey. I don't have the price of what we ordered but I can say that it isn't as I expected it to be. However, it was also not as good as it looks. :/

 We didn't order much but since this has generous serving, we were able to take away some of it and we ate it for breakfast the next day! :D After dinner, we roamed around again and take more photos!

We were able to roam around the park from 4PM - a little past 8PM (with rain). 

 Just look at how pretty this Cafe and Gasoline station is!!! 
Unfortunately, everything in this house is just for photo op! They don't actually offer coffee here. :P
I really enjoyed Chocolate Ville! This is one of the highlights of this trip and I was so glad that we started our Bangkok journey this way!

We didn't have a hard time figuring our way to Chocolate Ville. Just look for the nearest train station and you will be able to get to this dreamy place!

 We just road the train from our accommodation and alighted at the BTS Mo Chit Station -- it is the last stop of the Green Line BTS so you won't miss it. 
From Mo Chit Station, we  rode a taxi. Meter fare was not more than 150Baht. Some taxi drivers will refuse to use their meters, do not give in right away. They'll ask up to 350Baht to get to you to Chocolate Ville. There are many taxis, so just be patient in looking for an honest driver!

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&#…
