The Great British Festival was held at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig City, last March 7-9, 2014. It was a festival that featured the best of British culture and everything about United Kingdom such as automotive, fashion, sports and education. My sister with her ballet school participated on the event. They danced ballet. Her school is accredited in Royal Academy of Dance in London, the owner of her ballet school also teaches ballet in British School Manila. I think that is why they participated. Haha Anyways, check out the photos I took on the event.

Ayan sila nagpapasexy. Hahahaaha char! (This is it! Hahahaa)

Curtain call! All of the participants.. 

My sister goofing around with her false eyelashes turned into a mustache. (Well, I made her do that! hehehe)

Oldie but goodie! Our ride for the night hahaha! char! Just took a photo from this wonderful vehicle.

It was an exciting event. A lot of booths to visit and take a photo with. I did not included other photos because it is too many already.hihi camwhore! :)) Next post will be an #OOTD post. Weee! Moreover, who doesn't like British. I love their accent. It is so hot. I can listen to it all day all. After the performance of my sister the next performer was the Bloomfields, we were so hungry that we did not wait for it anymore. How I wish I got the chance to see the Younghusband brothers, I heard they visited on the event but on a different day. Bummer!

How about you? What do you like about the Great Britain?

I may not be a fan of Korean Cuisine but after eating in this restaurant changed my perception towards Korean dishes. This is true! We have been passing thru BF homes frequently and we kept on ignoring this restaurant until one day it was been featured on Kris TV. Hahaha I know, right? Sound a little cliché but Kris is so effective on advertising my grandma was the one who told us to try it. After the Confirmation of my sister on the church, we went to BF homes to try eating at Bi Won. We have no idea what to order. We just based our orders on our gut feels and recommendation of the server. Well, I am happy with the food we ate. 

Cozy place


Bi Won is an authentic Korean restaurant, I think only few Korean restaurants are known in our country compared to Japanese and Chinese restaurants they are all over the metro. As a first timer on a Korean restaurant, yes I know, it is my first time. I was so happy with the appetizer they gave us. It has 6 different kinds of appetizer such as peanuts, kimchi, steamed kangkong and the others were unknown to my taste buds but I tasted everything, I love it. (or matakaw lang kasi talaga hehehe) We ordered few items on the menu to taste it. Happy kid! 

They have a stove/ griller on the table for the barbecue. We should put it on use so we ordered some barbecues with lettuce and mint leaves.

Sam Gyup Sal – Slices pork belly and fresh vegetables barbecued at the table
Dak Gui – Chucks of chicken breast marinated with special sauce barbecued at the table

Lettuce and mint leaves ( I did not expected that it would taste good together.)

Time to roll the beef. I usually saw this on Korean Drama, rolling some bbq on the veggies. hahaha

Kal Bi Jjim – Braised beef shorts ribs with bone marinated in specially seasoned soy sauce 
(the sauce is so nice and the beef is so tender. heavenly! I am biased with beef. Beef lover here)

Japche – Korean dish made of sweet potato noodles with various vegetables in special seasoned sliced beef  (we keep on buying for more!!! new discovery dish Japche!! it looks like a pancit bihon but a little bit thicker and the taste is sweet and yummy! )

O Jing Uh Dup Bop – fresh slice squid, assortment of vegetables with special sauce with rice on sizzling plate (we asked someone to mixed it up for us. the photo was the after mixing it)

Pa jun – crispy rice flour pancake made with finely chopped squids and scallions in special sauce (the pancakes looks weird for me, I was hesitant to taste it but I tried and it is also good but I am not a fan of pancakes so I did not enjoyed it that much.)

The Verdict

They food was amazing! I recommend these to people who are not scared to have a different variety and taste on their palette. They mostly serve sweet dishes or we just ordered the sweet ones. hahaha The kimchi taste so good! It is not for sale. huhu It is just for free, available for their appetizer. I hope they sell bottles of kimchi and I will be their no.1 customer. hihi The food ranges to 200php-1000php up. Well, it is worth it because they have big servings. Big servings means happy tummy! =)

When I heard the word summer, all I can think about is laid back, comfort and sunshine. It is nice to play around with colors and floral patterns during this season. It is lovely to go to the beach with a variant color of clothes for a vacation. I always wish summer could last long but unfortunately, sometimes season change. This is why I called my summer style, Spring Fling. It might not be the always around but it has the love and the joy to express one self. Another thing that screams summer is the Dumond premium quality products. They have the uniqueness of the Brazilian way in beauty and style. Have you seen the latest summer collection from Dumond? I think you better check it out on their Facebook page, Instaram or Twitter

For you, what is your summer style? Is it #TheDumondWay?

I haven’t been to Las Vegas but I know how to dress to a girl’s night out with my galfriends. This is the reason of posting my ideas for a night out, I was invited by Kendra to participate in her challenge to dress her up for the Sin City. Here is the challenge:

My Fashion Challenge

In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to Las Vegas to enjoy a fun-filled getaway with friends. As the mother of 3 young children, I want to get a little help revitalizing my wardrobe before my big trip. For that help, I’m turning to my readers. Give me some great ideas for what I should wear on an evening at The Palms Casino and Resort. To help get you started, here’s a description of one of the clubs my friends and I plan to visit:

The View

I love scenic views, and I especially enjoy seeing the lights of a spectacular city from the air. The View certainly lives up to its name, and that’s why I’m excited to be spending an evening unwinding with friends at the top of Fantasy Towers in The Palms Resort. The View’s lounge features floor-to-ceiling windows that provide panoramic vistas of the city and the surrounding area. This club’s open seating adds to its casual atmosphere, and guests sitting at tables can play their choice of board games throughout the evening. Other guests enjoy games of shuffleboard or pool while sipping on signature cocktails. The View feels to some extent like an upscale rec room.

No other city in the world has the type of eclectic style you’ll find in the city of Las Vegas. This city has it all, and the blend of activities and attractions available here features something for everyone to enjoy. Due to the endless options available I turned to reviews from other experts on Gogobot to determine which hotels and restaurants on the strip were for me. Regardless of what I plan to do on any trip to Sin City, I know I’ll have more fun when I’m dressed to impress. I can’t wait to see the fashion ideas you have for me.
Challenge accepted!!! I love to mix and match and it turned out great! Check out the outfits I came up for Kendra for her night out in Las Vegas.

Along the long road of Bay, Laguna, there is a floating restaurant named Kamayan sa Palaisdaan sa Bay. It was my first time to eat on that place. It was a relaxing place on the province. You can hear the flowing water. You can see the live school of fish near the balsa or in the pond. There was also a wedding held on the function hall. People were enjoying their stay on this restaurant. We were one of those people. 

The Balsa and Function hall where people can rent it for occasions such as weddings, birthdays, baptismal or any celebrations.

Entrance of the restaurant
At the back of the restaurant, there is an old house.

Tilapia!!! they don't know they will be eaten later. 

The food has arrived at the table.

Sinigang na Baboy (Pig Stew?)

Pinakbet with shirmp

Ensalada

Part of the ensalada plus patis labo. yemmmm!

Favorite --- > Sizzling sisig! When I was young, I don't even know sisig exist until college I think. Ginawang pulutan? whehehe


They are offering traditional Filipino food. We ordered sinigang na baboy, enseladang talong, tilapia, sizzling sisig and pinakbet with shimp. The food is delicious and affordable with a place like that, it is worth it. Together with my cousin, we kept on throwing rice on the pond so fishes will show up. After eating we walk along the place to see the whole restaurant. It was huge and they have different statue of kids, cartoon character and random people. It was nice and lovely. They have also a playground for kids. 

The verdict : 4 out of 5 stars

Are you having problems with thinning hair or falling hair? Well, I am encountering the same problems for a couple of years already. I had tried different products but they failed me. Based on my experience, too much chemicals on my hair made it worst. I will blame my almost yearly salon visit to have my hair strengthen or rebonded since highschool. For two years already, I prevented myself from going to the salon to treat my hair for a rebond. That is really a huge sacrifice for my beauty. Hahaha jk I mean sacrifice for my hair, to avoid too much chemicals. Since from last year, I discovered an organic shampoo called Zenutrients Gugo Strengthening Shampoo. I saw it on kiosk stall on SM Sucat, so I tried it and until now I am still using it. Then, I saw the main branch of Zenutrients near my office. Yey for me!

Now, for the verdict: 

For the better results of a product, it should be used continuously. As of now, I am using it for months. It lessens my hair fall and my hair is starting to grow. I have baby hair now on my head not anywhere else.hihihi It is not harsh in my hair because it is totally organic. I am a witness on the procedures of their products, if you visited their main branch in Kapitolyo, Pasig, they have a clear glass window. People can check out the process of their products. Moreover, the smell is nice. Inside the bottle of the shampoo you can see a real gugo. A 250ml bottle cost P225.00. It is a little expensive compare to the normal shampoos but I can say it is effective and worth it. They also sell conditioner version of Gugo Strengthening.

For today, I have my wish list from Dressale.com. What If I am going to a party? What kind of party? Hmmm.. maybe a black and white themed party. So here are my choices! Of course I picked both dresses in black and white so we will have some choices but the accessories are versatile that we can use it on the two stunning cocktail dress.

First, we will have the black beaded cocktail dress. It is simple yet elegant. Sometimes we don’t need to wear too much decoration in our body. The perfect hairstyle in this dress will be an up do. 


Second, will be the lacey white cocktail dress. It symbolizes purity and godliness. I love how this dress will show your sexiness.
Sophisticated Wedding Earring Featuring Teardrop Crystal
This teardrop crystal earrings can be wore with both of the dress. It is sophisticated and perfect for occasions.
Stylish Pleated Evening Magnetic Closure Clutch with Rhinestones
The gold clutch with rhinestones is nice for an evening party. It won't be out of style.



With the perfect pair of shoes, you will never go wrong with a pair of high heels with a metallic gold embellishment. It is great with the gold clutch with rhinestones.
