How does food delivery make your life easier?

Ahem, for a homebaker/mommyblogger like me who's not so good in lutong ulam, food delivery is my life saver :D

foodpanda is...

foodpanda is a convenient online food ordering website that connects users with thousands of local restaurants. Customers can browse through numerous menus and place orders for delivery or take-away at the best price.

At foodpanda, we believe ordering food online should be fuss-free, fast and definitely fun. With just a few clicks you can order from a wide variety of delicious cuisines online.

foodpanda provides you with restaurant menus, customer reviews and more for over 300 restaurants spread over the whole Metro Manila and soon also in Cebu city.

How foodpanda works?

It is really easy, as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Tell us where you are: Enter your location so that we can show you which restaurants deliver to you. 

2. Choose what you would like: Pick a restaurant and select items you’d like to order. You can search by restaurant name, cuisine type, dish name or by keyword. 

3. Checkout: Enter your exact delivery address, payment method and your phone number. Always make sure that you enter the correct phone number to help us contact you regarding your order, if needed.

Now sit back, relax, and we’ll get your food delivered to your doorstep.

Creating Account? Is it necessary?

Creating an account is not mandatory. You can order using our guest checkout without having to sign up. We make sure that ordering food online at foodpanda is quick and fuss-free. After placing your order, you will have the option of creating an account.


First, Enter Your City and Location

More Choices for Hungry Pandas #foodpandaph

More choices for hungry pandas—the foodpanda mantra
Manila, November 13th – foodpanda, the leading global online food delivery marketplace is at it again, acquiring more and more partner establishments to cater the hungry Filipinos! Launched last June 2014 in the country, foodpanda has grown its restaurant database impressively, satisfying the craving of the Pinoy hungry pangs, whichever cuisine it may be.

“Ultimately, it all boils down to who offer variety, who provides choices. For a hungry customer, a craving for a specific cuisine will lead him to looking for what restaurant will be able to satisfy that. It’s not every day that a customer will have a Balkan dish craving, or a sudden urge to finish a plateful of ribs and fries. And on days like that, foodpanda comes into play—to solve that typical foodie problem”, Mauro Cocchieri, foodpanda CEO, said.

To those who’s up for a savory and saucy trip to Asia, you don’t need to pack your bags and fly miles away from home! All you need is your smart phone, internet connection, and the foodpanda app, or you can also opt to visit the website,! Want some pad thai? Then choose Som’s Noodle House. Or if you want curry and biryani combo, Queens Taj Mahal perfectly fits the bill! Sushi, maki, and ramen’s your craving of the day? Kitaro Sushi, TAT Japanese Restaurant and Manila Maki are just some of the restaurants you can take your pick from. They say love your own, and what better way to celebrate national pride than by chowing down Filipino treats prepared by Mario’s Kitchen, Abaknon Panciteria, and Cocina Juan. But if you want a one-stop shop for everything Asian, then Roberta Flavors of Asia is the perfect choice.

Years of American colonialism led to us acquiring the flavors of the Western dishes. Mexican food fanatics will be delighted with the tacos, nachos, and burritos that they can order from Mexicali, El Chupacabra, and Casa Quesadilla! Or if you’re leaning towards the all-American well-loved flavors, then Rub Ribs & BBQ, Whistlestop, Dillingers 1903, and Bowler Room totally hits that spot!

Dreaming of visiting Southern Europe? Why not settle on sampling their delicacies first? Balkan, home of authentic Yugoslavian home cooked meals will surely take your culinary experience to the next level!
foodpanda is also taking online food delivery a notch higher by partnering with gastro-pubs and hole-in-the-walls that provide both gustatory and visual treat. Burger, beers, and cocktails? Alchemy Bistro Bar, The Balcony Gastropub, Exit Bar, and The Sweet Ecstasy will surely delight your senses. Ending the day on a sweet note? Have feast from mouthwatering pastries from Happy Cream Puff, savory treats from Perogy’s Manila, and authentic French macarons from Mrs. Graham’s Macaron CafĂ©.

Even the health conscious crowd will find his or her perfect partner in foodpanda! Live Life Vegetarian Food is for those whose fond of eating but is scared of gaining unwanted weight. Saguiafins’s Delights, on the other hand, makes juicing and detoxifying a whole lot of fun.

“We are proud with the names that we have, and we continuously add more to it each day. We believe it is inevitable that people look and seek change. And with foodpanda’s wide array of restaurants, hungry customers are never left with no choice”, added Cocchieri.

Experience choice and comfort right at your fingertips by downloading foodpanda on Apple App Store, Google Play Store, or Windows Store.

My CANMAKE Kawaii Mini Haul + Review

My first ever BDJBOX Shop Purchase!
except for the monthly BDJBOX :P

Ordered CANMAKE products (^.^,)

Purchased it last Friday and it arrived yesterday :D

CANMAKE Quick Easy Eye Liner
Price: P480.00
Shade: Black

swatched and lovin it :D
testing nga...

achievement :D 
hindi ako marunong mag eyeliner PROMISE!!!!
pero achieve naman dabah?

ako lang yan :D
In all fairness mas feel ko toh compared sa gel liners and pencils, 
kasi it looks like a pen (marker ang peg) and works like a pentel pen lol 
and slightly flexible ang tip and inky or pigmented as beauty bloggers say it. :P

unlike sa pencil na effort galore ako sa pag apply
and sa gel liners na ang hirap for me ihandle ng brush.

SEE!!! (^.^,) pati ako natawa
bat nag iba sa kabila hehehe
darating din ang araw na mapeperfect ko toh plus that cat-eye chenez
and when that day happens...
Who you??? ka sakin :P 
hahahhaa 'justkidding

This is it pancit!!! 
The type of EyeLiner na magiging Bff ko :P


I heard about eyebrow color changing nung bagets pa me with the tv show ni Tyra Banks where the Participants had to undergo major transformation including eye brow bleaching, and I must say maganda ang effect kasi it can change your look in a way that I didnt imagine before :P yung masungit na look nagiging mabaet, yung mabaet magiging fierce! well isa yun sa nagpa-amaze sakin, ginagalaw din pala ang kilay :P  kaso for me di pa yun uso or di matatanggap ng magulang ko if mag bleach chenelin din ako hahaha. (but that was then.)

now pwede na ang color change sa eyebrow in an instant with the help of:
CANMAKE Eyebrow Color Change.

CANMAKE Eyebrow Color Change
Price: P440.00

This shade is in Chestnut Brown

dahil excited ako to test the products...
presenting my "pambahay" face

 and my brows with CANMAKE Color Change
f na f ! as in feel na feel hahahaha :D

If you'll notice lookie on my "pambahay face"
my (eyebrow) hair strands are not in a joyful harmony :P
galit galit sila... yan ang pamana ng aking pudrabells, trademark nya ang kilay na yan :P

kaya monthly or whenenevr kailangan, I make paayos my kalokang-kilay. and if walang budget for browhaus to the rescue and not so mamahaling waxing/threading salon, yun lang di makuha best na mag compliment sa fezlak ko unlike sa browhaus talaga. 

kaya another HERO to the rescue si CANMAKE Eyebrow Color Change, na-tamed nya ang pasaway na strands (works like setting gel for me) kaya behave sila after and sabi nga sa name nya, color change, nag lighten ang dark brows ko. nakaka soften ng look and even my sister sabi anung meron parang may kakaiba (di nya mapinpoint pero she noticed na may iba talaga, and nung sinabi ko about the product she was amazed too!) and now do I look mabaet na ba or fierce?

and that's my mini CANMAKE HAUL form BDJBOX SHOP

oops! but I got some Canmake items on may kit pa. 
might as well review them para this post will be a Mini Canmake Kawaii Party

CANMAKE Cream Cheek
Price: 395.00

My 4th Cream Cheek piece
This is my canmake favorite :P
cream blush na when applied parang nakita mo lang your crush :D

CANMAKE Candy Wrap Lip
Price: P410.00
wala na kasing ibang kulay na pwede, isa na lang toh sa options and atat lang talaga ako dahil may special offer for BDJ Girls that day (get a cream cheek for free with any purchase) kaya go na ang lola nyo :P
afraid kasi ako sa mga pink because feeling ko di bagay sa katisayan ko, buti bagay naman sya sakin. yey!

mi selfie with:
CANMAKE Quick and Easy Eyeliner,
CANMAKE Eyebrow Change Color
CANMAKE Cream Cheek
CANMAKE Candy Wrap Lip

Have Yourselves A #MerrySMChristmas

Merry Christmas!!! 
Opps it's only November 25th pa lang pala :P
but still... a month from now PASKO NA!!!! yiheeee!

but a short story first...

Since my Pappi (father) went on his journey to our creator 2  years ago, we stopped putting Christmas Decor at home. If you lost someone (someone really close to you for example) it's truly taking a part of your heart and minsan you can go back to what it was like before. Even Birthdays are not celebrated the bongacious way. We go to Church Thank God for another year of existence, Repent and ask for forgiveness, pray for guidance, good Health and blessings. and then we eat-out and that's it, our Idea of celebrating Birthdays and any other Occasions.

But for a Mom like me with 3 kids aged 7 and below, I also want them to experience the Christmas Vibe.
Christmas Icons like Santa Claus, The Ginger Bread House, Tin Soldier etc, etc.
I'm already 28 but still feeling giddy-yee-up-up about Christmas and I'm feeling that vibe whenever I'm at SM SuperMalls and that's where the MerrySMChristmas takes place

What is #MerrySMChristmas for me ba?

First is the SUPERB Christmas Decorations

For the hanging decor is so elegant and breath taking... my son wonder pa nga if gaano sya kabigat and what if mahulog :P The Hanging Ginormous Christmas Balls is SUPER awesome!!!

SM SuperMalls never fails to amaze me on their decors 
lalo na this Christmas Season.

Shopping Galore

Their wide selections of almost everything in the SM Department Stores and Boutiques makes it easier for us to look for gifts to be given sa aming mga loved ones. ( I won't post na our Shopping chenez ah :P
and SM is just keeping their word at the Jingle "SM we got it all for you!" everything is REALLY there. and keri in all types of budget. 

like, gift ideas for monito-monita ni hubby (sa office) worth P50/week tuma-tumbling lang sya sa SM Aura he bought a face towel set in a gift box for 49.75 :P I'm eyeing din for the colored coffee cups and saucer set at 349.75 pag balik ko after payday will complete my shopping list na!

That's why we are so feeling the #MerrySMChristmas vibe already

But how did the #MerrySMChristmas start ba?
