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. XD
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!
See? Such nice nice packaging ❤ Jump to see more of the product!

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!

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?

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?

No. This is not a farewell to whatever post, ok. Just to keep it clear.
I’ve been out for a while yet again. Life had a whirlwind of surprises in store for me so far. In a way that it made me very preoccupied – Family, Work, Anime and MMORPG! If I could only have more time within the day.
But given with the life’s hullabaloos, it is important that you stop and smell the roses, and be grateful for the things you have. Like this!
L-R: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Hello Kitty Chopsticks, Shiseido Blotting Strips and Cheesecake Flavored Kitkat
Thank you to my superior for the goodies from Japan! ありがとうございます。I really appreciate this. How I wish I could go there someday!
NOTE TO READER: This is another text heavy post. This is not a review post. Should you want to see some reviews,feel free to check out the other posts.

So I have been in a hiatus for 2 months after purchase of my domain, and then I blog about car batteries!?!?!
You see, I’m having car issues for 1-2 years already. I guess my good o’l car is, for lack of a creative description, old. Oh but we did have good days. Anyway, this morning, I tried starting my car, and it won’t budge! Luckily, my folks won’t be using their car today so I get to borrow it. Benefits of staying at your folk’s home. However, they will be using that car tomorrow. The other car, well, it’s manual transmission – which would take me A WHOLE LOT OF TIME to understand that thing! I have 9 hrs to re-learn, assuming I won’t be sleeping. Therefore, I HAD to get mine fixed when I arrive home, after work and some chores. With that, I get to try out, not because I want to, rather, I HAD TO, the 24-hr service anywhere of Motolite, which they call EXPRESS HATID. Reader, hold your horses before you order. This is only applicable to Manila and Key Cities.
Sometimes, I think that my car is alive and knows exactly when to act up. But hey, a little rain in your parade is bound to teach you a thing or two in the real world. 😉
Click below for more details on my Motolite Express Hatid experience!
NOTE TO READER: This is text-heavy since I didn’t take ANY PHOTOS. They had fixed it at 9:50PM, against the garage light, all thanks to the hood of my car.

Happy New Year! I know I’m late again. I’ve been crazily preoccupied these days so I try to be as free as possible so I could
play Guild Wars write. Hehehe. I have so much stuff in my mind that is non-work related.
Take it as me being FREE! Yeah, there had been changes now which I am somewhat grateful for. But before life in general, I did accomplish (though 13 days late) to get myself a domain! Yahoo!
Why change a domain? Because…..
NOTE TO READER: If you’re after some reviews, please refer to the previous or next post. This is just me sharing life. Oh and this will be text heavy.

So over the holidays, I did absolutely NOTHING but play Guild Wars 2. I finally was able to finish all chapters of the Living Story Season 2 so far. I think there is a patch by Jan 13, so I better check it out by then.
This weekend, I watched STRAIGHT Uta no Prince-Sama: Maji 1000% (known as UtaPri). I loved it so much that there was intensity 4-ish earthquake that early morning (I watched from 10PM-4:30AM), around 3AM, I didn’t feel it!
Picture grabbed from Google. I don’t own this.
Check out why I loved it!

I just thought of sharing this. 🙂
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 82,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.
