My Make Up Tutorial Obsession

This entry was originally posted on June 30, 2015


I’ve been obsessing with make up tutorials for months now and it’s kinda crazy.

At first, I was just watching make-up tutorials for fun but as time goes by, I became more engrossed with the idea of putting on some make-up. Honestly, I can’t wear make-up regularly because I don’t know how to. Another reason is that I don’t have the proper tools to try it. And lastly, it’s because I’m allergic to powder. My eyes turns watery when someone tries to put an eyeliner on me. I dunno, I think I’m just not into putting make up on and I am not really used to it that’s why.

However, I attempted to buy a moisturizer but I ended up buying a facial wash moisturizer instead. I didn’t like the sticky feeling of the facial wash moisturizer that I bought, so I decided to buy a different brand. I was opting for a known brand, but I saw an old brand that has been in the business for years. I tried their facial wash and I also bought a facial cleanser. After a few weeks, my co-workers noticed the difference in my skin and I sticked to it. Oha, it sounded like a commercial testimonial! LOL.

I didn’t buy any cosmetic products after that. I’d like to but it’s not in my priorities these days. I think I’ll just share the vids that I liked from YouTube in here so that you’ll see what I’m talking about.

I just typed in “make up tutorials” and these videos were shown on my YouTube browser. These are some of the videos that I liked and honestly, I really want to try it but… I have a lot of buts in putting make up on my face.

For now, enjoy the videos…:)

Plana’s Pantry

This entry was originally from my WordPress account on June 27, 2015.

Hello there!

After a toxic week last week, my colleague, Lily, and I had a casual conversation about blogging. She’s back with her blog and I’m so happy about it! I really don’t know why but it just makes me happy to know that other than me, there’s also another person in our team who blogs about anything under the sun.

Actually, it was her who influenced me to go back to my roots (Yeah, Blogger, that’s you.) And while we’re discussing about her drafts and her latest blog entry, I also checked out her blog entries and some of her Instagram photos. I found a Bingsu in her Instagram and being a foodie, I easily got interested in where she found it. She mentioned a store in the Pavilion Mall in Edsa Central, Mandaluyong City. I got so interested that I asked so many questions on where I can find it. Eventually, I was able to figure things out.

She also mentioned that there was a posh restaurant nearby California Gardens in Libertad, Mandaluyong City. Actually, it’s in front of Migui’s Fitness Hub but more accurately, it is beside Robinson’s Bank. It’s situated in a commercial building so you can easily spot it if you’re coming from Robinson’s California Gardens.

The posh restaurant Lily mentioned was called, Plana’s Pantry. She told me that the aunt of the owner of Plana’s Pantry is also a Methodist. She mentioned that their family are not just restaurant owners but also one of the founders of the Methodist Church.

Here’s a description about Plana’s Pantry from their Facebook page:

Little did Jolly and Rachel know that these gatherings would soon be taking them to a bigger venue. Hence, the creation of Plana’s Pantry. It has always been their joy to share good food and wholesome experience and they hope that through Plana’s Pantry they would be able to share to a larger group what they like to cook and eat themselves, and serve their customers with an honest, simple, generous, and delightful food that satisfies.
Now, they also offer catering services for lunch and dinner to companies from 100 to 1000 people.

So my boyfriend, Ino, and I went to Plana’s Pantry to have some late lunch. It was a good thing that he was in the mood because I was able to persuade him to check out the place. I actually mentioned this to him the night before and I guess he was also curious about it that’s why he agreed to accompany me the next day.

Plana’s Pantry has a good ambiance. It was bright and cozy and the music also helped in setting the mood for its customers. There were witty quotations on the walls too. They also have some interesting quotes on the paper placemats.

All in all, Lily didn’t disappoint us. The ambiance was relaxing, the room’s temperature was just right, a bit of Jazz or acoustic music playing in the background, and of course delicious and affordable food in one place. What else can you ask for?
