My current shower buddies!

I love taking a bath every morning using LUSH It’s raining men! The honey rich shower gelΒ  with exotic flowers, sensual honey makes me squeeze more and enjoy my bath time. It has a hint of vanilla that makes it sweeter and smells refreshing before braving the world outside to work. It makes my skin feels smooth and moisturized.

In evening, I opt to use my current obsession with charcoal products. I love Sumi Charcoal Body Soap that makes my skin softer and clean. If you are wondering if it will stain, well it doesn’t πŸ™‚ It is one of Japanese and Korean women cult favorite to detoxify and brighten skin. The smell is pretty decent and doesn’t smell weird once dried up.

I followed this with Avon Naturals’ lightening papaya & soy milk hand and body lotion. I love to smother this new found lotion that I learned from my office mate. The smell is refreshing and it is not sticky. It is also good forΒ  daytime use! Would you believe this is my 2nd bottle in a month? I know haha! I just love body lotion.

Whenever I feel my skin is very dry, I go back to my trusted lotion: Aveeno Moisturing Lotion.

I use Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub 2-3 a week to eliminate dead skin and visit a spa once a month if I am so tamad to scrub my whole body and have my regular dose of sea salt body scrub.

That’s all πŸ™‚

What’s for lunch?

Yesterday was the hottest temperature in our country! Pagasa says, it is not officially summer yet! The heat here in Luzon is due to Ridge of high pressure area causing warmn and humid conditions.

Oh my goodness, I wonder how it feels when summer hits…

Meanwhile, I am thankful that am now enjoying veggies two months straight for lunch. At first I feel like throwing up big time but as time goes by, my stomach accepted it.I drink an iced cold green tea every time I am eating veggies alone πŸ™‚

Felix @ Greenbelt 5

One of my favorite restaurant at Greenbelt 5 is Felix πŸ™‚ As always, I tremendously enjoy eating there because of the ambiance and amazing knowledgeable and accommodating waiters.

Menu

Collection of Wines

I am not really a wine fan but occasionally, I opt for chilled red wine πŸ™‚

For starters, they will serve bread *free* (which reminded me the softness of KFC buns! πŸ™‚ yum yum much softer), butter and the magical bread dip!Β  Then followed by pumpkin soup with sprinkle of carrots and chestnuts, Fuyubare (Php 165.00) I feel so full already but the Entree is much exciting, my favorite:

Lobster and Steak

This is so overload, no need to have rice! as you can see, there’s pasta… oh dear so divine. I finished the whole plate, I have to! aside from the yummy taste… its pricey too, but worth it πŸ™‚ If I’m not mistaken… it cost me Php 1000++ for this single plate. Don’t worry it’s not the most expensive one, there’s a dish called Kenta the Wagyu Gold Rib Eye that cost Php 2,500.00! a single plate that can go so far at Sofitel’s Buffet at the Spiral (except Holidays, much pricey!) but then again, Edsa Shangri-la’s Buffet at The Heat that cost Php 1,000.++ in regular days. Holy cow, I sounded a Buffet eater! Yay *guilty* only at Sofitel and Shangri-la. Sarap e πŸ™‚

Will, I recommend Felix? yes, to those who love quiet, relaxing restaurant πŸ™‚

Leona comes to MNL

#mgateh

Leona (the girl in yellow shirt) is such a crazy gal who travels Singapore to Manila from time to time. Parang Quezon City to Divisoria lang teh! I love the fact that she puts an effort to see me and my bes coming all the way from Bulacan. Hmmm she really loves to travel!

Kahapon ay nagkita kita kami, as much as I want to turn down an invitation! I can’t simply say No. I am super duper in mega strict diet with super duper weak control pag nakakita ng food! I drool πŸ™‚ i am still weak and I am working on that, hence I enjoyed the girl bonding, daming chismis ng mayaman and I had to be “KJ” and did not joined them watch Thor in 3D, instead I went to the gym but unfortunately my shoe broke after an hour of cardio, anyhoo!

Sarah and Leona at 5th Avenue

Before we had our late lunch, the two went at 5th Avenue to have their phone checked…

Avid Blackberry users

I guess you’ll spot where is mine as a coke lover that wanna lose weight, so help me God. Leona got her BB fixed that cost her 2k since the tracker (?) isn’t moving, that was my old blackberry problem when I am still an old school “baller”. I started using blackberry because of those celebrities that tweets using ubertwitter! since then I want to have it and started with Blackberry storm that is hefty pricey and I hate touch screen pala! So, after months raving about it, I switch and switch until I have my 3rd phone from Blackberry. While, Sarah’s phone was a victim of super “layaw” as her son wants to munch her phone! Well, leona… I guess it was caused by ka-adikan sa twitter hahaha! πŸ™‚

and as I compute all the calories and added hours to my cardio as we eat, I noticed that my bes, Sarah has a bag holder! (sosyal)

Bag Holder (Ikaw na!)

I love the idea and I want one πŸ™‚

Moving on, #mgateh are sucker for desserts! juice ko, huhu!

Hello DQ

Sarah's super duper chocolate ice cream!

Leona's

Banana Split! (MINE) I ate the banana and half of the ice cream in chocolate syrup!

This is so yummy! if I am not in a diet, I will finsih this banana split!

I really enjoyed trading stories with my girlfriends, it’s all fun and all about food. We have another this week and I am already in soft diet right now so I can eat without guilt next time we see each other which is tomorrow (May 12, 2011)

Healthy Lunch

As I tried to keep my strict diet #strict… I am so happy that my hubs mom cooked for us!

Sinigang na Hipon

I am not a big fan of Sinigang na pork, for I don’t know why πŸ™‚ but Sinigang na Hipon is my favorite, actually I love shrimp. I had this for lunch and it is so yummy with 5 spoons of rice (yeah, I am weird that way) I already lost 11 lbs (2 weeks as a gym rat) and I assume it’s all water retention. Don’t get alarm, it’s healthy pa raw… #lose32lbs so help me Dear God ❀

Hubs mom is a great cook! She can transform anything with simple ingredients to a yummy-licious dish πŸ™‚

I totally admire her. Actually, both parents of hubs are great cooks! His father owns a restaurant and also provides catering πŸ™‚ So, if you’ll ask me if my husband is a great cook too? yes he is, but I am trying to beat him tho’ haha!

Happy Saturday!
