Personally taught and led by Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde of Ballet Manila.
and assisted by Ballet Manila Principal Dancer Joan Sia.

Not to be biased, but I might just be... in 3, 2, 1... These little ballerinas were amazing, a head-turner actually. Their cutesy pink tutus, ballet shoes, and tiara were fascinating and yes that performance is quite magical too is super captivating. The i-Shiner ballerinas demonstrated poise and grace with their smooth and delicate movements. With the help of Promil Four i-Shine 7 Ballet Camp, i-shiners learned the value of discipline that they will take with them beyond the workshop.

Gourmet Pinoy Hotdogs at Franks Resort World Manila - A Must Try for All Pinoy Foodies!

Hotdogs usually looks like red sausages that come in regular, jumbo and even cocktail sizes, readily available at the grocery, and supermarkets. Hotdogs are easy to prepare too and actually a Kid's favorite. That's why hotdogs are always part of the menu of every kiddie party.  There's hotdog on a stick, hotdog sandwiches, and hotdogs are even included on a party spaghetti and even Menudo for some. And if you were a kid at heart like me -  hotdogs are still super ok for breakfast, snacks, lunch or dinner.

But if you have a discriminating taste like me, not all hotdogs are the same. So whenever I find something good, I share it to my family, friends, and here on my blog. Recently, I found out that there's a sports snack bar located inside the gaming area of Resorts World Manila called Franks.

The Chicken Inasal hotdog is indeed made with chicken that has been marinated in Inasal sauces and this is evident even when eaten plain. The annatto oil, crispy garlic and annatto bits, spring onions, and other garnishes all just add up to the inasal experience.

A'bloom Blossoms at Althea Korea

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 3 Comments
Something fresh, cute, and insanely irresistible has blossomed at Althea Korea our most trusted K-Beauty source online.  Presenting Althea Korea's newest sprout A'BLOOM

A'bloom Blossoms at Althea Korea

A'Bloom launches not just one, not even 2, but 3 products that are totally loaded with cuteness and so much more.

A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster | A'bloom Meringue Puffs | A'bloom Mask Sheet

A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster

Let start off with the A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster. Honestly, at first, I was wondering if this li'l thing will really work. I tried different facial treatments at facial centers and even at home doing some DIY one thing they have in common PAIN. Ouchie from prickling, squeezing and that super glue like nose strips and mask sheets that always left me teary. No pain no Gain  - right? Here in the Philippines, it is called "Tiis Ganda" all for the sake of having clear and beautiful skin.

A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster for Php200.00
The First Ever Natural BHA Stick with a gentle and effective way of removing blackheads, even whiteheads, and other impurities and also a potent formula that prevents future skin breakouts.

White Willow as Natural BHA, Charcoal for deep cleansing, Apricot Seeds for exfoliation, Tea Tree Leaf Oil for that blam effect are the major ingredients of the BHA Blackhead Blaster.

Forgive me for not posting a selfie while trying out this small but powerful stick. My face is not cooperating lately haha and I got tons of blackheads, whiteheads, dark spots and blemishes and pimples, an indication that I'm super stressed about my birthday month, summer vacay plans that have been going on and off as of planning, plus my mommy mode dilemma that school is about to start again soon, So, hello tuition fee and other bills to pay. This is not a rant :P

This little stick really got your BlackheadsI tried applying it all over my face. Yes, all over my face :P Application was super easy and glides smoothly. I like the apricot seeds in it for an extra power to cleanse my face but not harsh on my skin. It also felt like a balm that was once cool, turned warm and cool again. I don't know if it's just me or whatever but I like it. I rubbed it off and washed with water (much better if warm water for the pores to open up more) and just moments after washing my face, it felt super clean and bright. I was able to see some of the whiteheads hanging off a thread pa! as if they were really evicted! And some are super easy to remove as by just wiping it off with a cotton pad and a toner. I tried it again today, I let it sit a bit longer, rubbed it too and washed it with warm water and its so much better.

Value for Money: Not bad for a Php200 purchase and Yes! for a no ouchie feeling when removing blackheads and other skin impurities. Product Quality and Packaging: I say it's super cute and compact that I can apply and store easily.

Plus, it is packed with 25grams of essence! More than enough to cover your face, neck and for me, I was able to splurge it on my arms and knees! A little drop goes a long way! P.s Very light scent and the sheet is 100% made from a Eucalyptus tree.

Save the Cutest for Last, A'Bloom's Meringue Puffs

But wait, this adorable puff is not an edible dessert, I think it is safe to say; an eye candy? hahaha The moment I opened the meringue puff box, I can't help myself but to squeeze it on and on and squeal with kilig and happiness!!! This instantly became a destressing puff for me! 

But of course, this little drop of dessert looking puff is meant to be a makeup application tool. Made with a high-density foam that is latex-free and non-toxic materials. Super Safe for Sensitive Skin.  Use this cutesy multi-angled puff for an easy, and fast that can be used wet for a dewy look or dry for full coverage and a matte finish and that it's so easy to use that even makeup beginners like me will have no trouble using this tool.

Value for Money: Just Take My Money!!! This is super cute and multifunctional as a makeup tool and a destressing puff :P Product Quality and Packaging: Again, cuteness overload! and I love that this is made from a good (non-toxic) quality material that is super okey for sensitive skin.
