Globe Broadband Internet: Customer Service Review

Normally, I give praises to good food, good restaurant, good make-up, good skin care and good customer service.

This time around, what I received was the worst-of-the-worst customer service I ever experienced so far. I pass the award to: Globe . I hyperlinked it so you can see what I’m talking about. I know it’s too early to crown that, it’s just March!

Exactly how long were we subscribed to Globe Broadband Internet? Probably around 3 years.

Happy 2017!!!

Hello! I know I have been in hiatus for 8 months. Let’s put it as 2016 has been a crazy year – crazy enough to test my wits in all aspects of my life. It’s the most challenging year in my entire life (so far!).  I’ve been stuck in between a rock and a hard place, but I’m quite glad 2016 has come to an end.

And now, moving forward to 2017! I’m claiming that this year will be a great year. This year, I’ll run after the things I like doing, and blogging being one of them. :3 I have loads of offline content I’ve been building up since my hiatus. I’ve been to places – as far as USA! It was work, but hey, it’s a new opportunity for me in my working life. I had fun even if I came home sick. Hehehe.

Hope to see you more this year! Cheers to a great year ahead! More finances, more pleasant and unique experiences and more on chasing after hobbies! ❤ ❤ ❤

Benefit: the POREfessional Primer Review

Good Day! And a belated Happy New Year to you! I missed posting for say…. 4-5 months? I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff like work, personal life, and gaming. Come to think of it, I’ve been going out a whole lot less lately due to gaming. Hehehe.

So to start of with the my first post of the year right, I’d go to the product I love dearly. It’s Benefit’s the POREfessional Primer.

 

I came across this over my fave make-up blogger years back. I got so curious so I asked a friend of mine to get me a set with this primer and their popular tint in the US. And the rest is history.

Haru’s Thoughts: My Guild Wars 2 Adventure (So Far)

Hi Everyone!

I had been busy with gaming work for months already. I guess it’s my way of an escape (aside from all sorts of stuff I’ve been doing). Why do I exactly play online games? Isn’t it a bit contradicting to expectations – girl ❤ make-up (and spend tons over it) and MMORPG? Let me count the ways.

I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 since… October 2012 (NA Server – Blackgate). BUT! My account got banned since they thought my card, the one I used to pay for my account, was a stolen card (WHAT!?!?!). It got reversed so totally fine. I recreated my character last week of December 2012, still in NA Server, Blackgate, and the rest is history. So you might think I might be a pro at this point. NAH! I only get to play Friday and Saturday nights (not even every week), sometimes Sunday, and no-work-next-day nights (or no work day). I haven’t been consistently online – just casual… Extremely casual.

After 3 years since game launch, they finally released their major patch yet – Heart of Thorns – last October 23, 2015. And I did pre-purchase it a week before launch.

Majolica Majorca: Lash King in BR666 Review

 

Gah~~~ I am supposed to write a ton of work-related stuff but I can’t seem to get the ball rolling. I was dozing off. Blame  my extreme gaming schedule during weekends! I spent the weekend running around with Faerie Law (FL) in the new maps and in WvW. This is the guild I just joined recently. I think I did mention it in my last post. We captured our Guild Hall after a few attempts (around 3-4 times last Friday, while getting it the first time last Saturday).  Anyway, I’ll write about our Guild Wars adventures, plus the first expansion (after 3 years!) of Guild Wars 2 on a different post. I hope it won’t be too far off.

But to keep my creative writing juices up, I figured I should do a product review. A LONG overdue one.

One thing I hate about mascaras is the need to purchase one every 3 months. They shouldn’t be sitting in your drawers, bags, whatever, more than that. Before dropping home, I decided to go to the mall to pick up a mascara. Had to say good bye to my Benefit Mascara and replace with a new, fresh mascara. I picked up Majolica Majorca’s Lash King in Brown 666!

Why brown? Why not deep black? Shouldn’t mascaras match your hair color? What’s wrong with the number ? To find out,  continue reading!

Haru’s Thoughts: Hobby Update!

Hello. My walking world is like a rollercoaster for the past few months – both  good and bad. In all aspects of my life. Whole lot of stuff had happened that I had never expected. Looking back last year, exactly same time last year, I wouldn’t think I’d be where I am now and still thrive. Maybe when I recap my 2015 during my slow days (will there be one?), I will definitely wonder how I managed to survive this roller coaster year.

 

How do I anyway? From my hobbies which comprises of (not in any order):

  • Make-up and Skin Care
  • Writing and Drawing
  • Coloring —- this is something new!
  • Searching for nice places to eat – But I try to lessen this since I’m gaining weigh >.<
  • Anime (at times, this is a stressful one when I’m in the WHERE IS THE NEXT EPISODE?!?!?!?! mode)
  • MMORPG (but returning from time-to-time, console!)

Gah!!!! I’m really sorry for slacking off for blog posts. I’m basically rushing over everything. I know, I know. One can never run out of stuff to do at work, but one can also drown in work. 😄

 

Right now, I’m at home, waiting for my colleague to be in the train station.I will pick her up and we’d go to our location for pilot test.  Why not convert my idle time to something productive, right?

 

I will review today one of my make-up kit staples – Good Afternoon Berry Berry Tea BB SPF 35PA++ from Skinfood!

North Haven Spa: Ginger Body Scrub Review

 

Ginger in my food. Ginger in my cup. Now, ginger as a scrub? Strange?

Some like it hot, some like cold. Some like it in a pot, 5 days old.  I’m not sure if you’re familiar with that nursery rhyme. I think it had something to do with the porridge. In any case, that poem was running in my head as I use this: Ginger Body Scrub from North Haven Spa in Baguio!

Nature Republic: Photoshot 3D Concealer in #23 Natural Beige Review

 

Good Day to my readers! I’m rather pre-occupied right now, but I feel I need to find my a quiet space despite where I am. So here I am, creating a post. 🙂

 

One of my Nature Republic hauls, I bought Photoshot 3D Concealer in #23 Natural Beige. Why? I was all in a rage before in concealers, all thanks to my panda-like eyes. I  consider my panda eyes as my gaming battle scars and from allergies.

Will this hide my gaming battle scars?

North Haven Spa: Strawberry Jam Body Scrub Review

Hello! It’s been wild for the last few days. I did create a schedule of sorts for my day, unfortunately, it was never followed. Le sigh~

 

During one of my work-related trips, I landed in the summer capital of the Philippines – Baguio! I REALLY WANTED TO GO THERE JUST BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER. I love the cold weather, the fog, the fact that I will wear a nice jacket, be cozy under the covers, and the picturesque sight of the mountains. So when I saw Baguio was in the list of places to be assigned to, and as destiny may have put it, placed me there, I was so happy! I will definitely not trade my cold and cozy spot there over a hot, humid, view of the sea. It’s been 3 years since I last went to Baguio. As I type this, I am dreaming to go back there.

Before going back to Manila, we passed by North Haven Spa quickly (15 minutes-quick), and I hauled the scrubs they have. Ha! I wished to extend my stay, but call of duty. I headed back to Manila with the team, as scheduled.

 

Among the 4 scrubs I bought, the first scrub I tried is one of their new ones – Strawberry Jam Scrub!

Yum! Strawberry yum! But is it as yummy on the skin as well?
