Asian Drama Fan Mode On: Love Keeps Going

Hi there! Oh my, I've been back to my usual drama addict self, that's why I went on another hiatus. I miss my Asian + Korean drama marathons, it's been a while. Besides I need inspiration (haha!), so for two days (and a night) I watched Mike He. Just in case, he's a Taiwanese Actor most known for Devil Beside You (google him for more ;-D) I re-watched some parts of Sunny Happiness, and then his most recent drama (at least in his MySoju profile), Love Keeps Going. February 2012 is a big deal for a Korean fangirl like yourself truly, because it's Lee Jun Ki (Joon Gi)'s discharge from the military services, I'm eagerly awaiting for his comeback drama.  Although, nothing fancies me yet on the current Korean dramas lineups (surprise, surprise), so I went for Chi-Dramas, and a choice between Mike He or Va Ness. Mike He wins! ;-D I just have to say, he's mighty looking handsome a la Lee Min Ho-esque in City Hunter, with his updated hairdo in this drama.

Mike He as Han Yi Lie
Love Keeps Going Taiwanese Drama with 13 episodes
Yay! Piggyback...sweetness! Mike He and Cyndi Wang as Zha Mei Le (Lead Actress)
I don't want to spoil the fun, suffice it to say that I super love this drama, meaning I'm up for re-runs. I wish there were more than 13 episodes because I want more Mike He (haha!), although an episode is longer than the usual drama episode. I watched it online. Episode 1 in goes for 7 parts in Viki.com. I watched the first part via Viki, the comments are just hilarious, although could be a bit distracting if you also read through them while reading the subs, and the it takes a while to load, so I went to dramacrazy.net.

Awww...Hugs! ^_^ Hmmm....love their hair color #matching, it's the same as mine, methinks. ;-D
The story is about Zha Mei Le, who's an eager to please type of girl, in a nice way. Mike He plays Han Yi Lie, your Mr. Darcy (but eventually turns into the sweetest guy ever)... successful, handsome, and proud. Your usual drama elements are not to be missed...third parties (a lot of them), family issues, mommy/daddy issues, fashion makeovers + shopping (I like!), accidents, life-threatening sickness, pastry chefs too,  etc. whew! #Welcometodramaland ;-D The chemistry between the leads is so great, and that's a big plus, it made me think of Autumn's Concerto all over again. And Mike He just made my heart flutters! He's the man...feeling giddy much! ;-D Although, some major events happening, although one was expected, but all on the last three episodes...please! Oh well! I'm a proud #Fangirl! Hmmm, come to think of it, Taiwan is more accessible than Seoul, so I dream on... ;-D

Me Time at The Spa Rockwell

Happy Monday! Harnessing positive vibes, on with another pampering post. This is an overdue post, another highlight of my not-so-recent Manila field trip (shopping and cruising included) was a treat to The Spa in Rockwell. I had a lot of time (and tired feet) to spare at the Powerplant Mall, while waiting for my hubby. More often than not, I like to kill time by getting a lavish "me" time by going to a spa. The stingy me was hoping to get it from a more mid-end spa salon, but I only had The Spa as a choice in Rockwell, at least non showed when I googled for spa choices. The Spa offers such luxurious indulgence, of course it comes a bit pricey too.
The Spa at The Rockwell Powerplant Mall at the R2 Level
The area is not to be missed, the facade comes with a beautifully lighted area.
An elegant receiving area. 
Beautiful hallway as always. The door to the right is for the foot treatments.
I didn't want to get a full-body massage, since we're leaving for a trip,  I didn't want to sport sore back just in case the therapist became too fond of my back nodules. I'd like to leave them untouched for a while since they're not really bothering me. But my feet are killing me, and you ought to know I'm OC to my feet too, I like to pamper them. A slight darkening and corns bother me, a lot, I like to be in preventive mode. ;-D In fact, modesty aside, I get compliments for them, see an up close look of them here. I wanted to go for the Oriental Foot Therapy, but they seemed to lack the oil needed for the treatment, so I ended up getting the Peppermint Foot Scrub for Php 650 Deluxe Room (no access to wet floor).
Reclining plush seats for the Deluxe foot treatments. Although they're housed in a common room, there's about three chairs in the room.
The Peppermint Foot Scrubs included a foot soak, scrub, and a foot reflex massage for 60 minutes.
As you can see, the room is cozy, and the warm lighting provides a more relaxing setting. I doze off. ;-D I'm not sure, but I like the scrubbing part here vs. others that I tried (and there are a lot of them), it's nicer because she did it more gently, while effectively softening. My memories of foot scrubs are therapists who are overly so into it when they do the scrubbing and filing (nanggigigil). My mom is a bit traumatized that she's now hesitant to have foot scrubs, so I'll definitely treat her here.

The massage was equally nice. 
All is well indeed, especially ending it with an even more relaxing hot tea. 
I love it here. If only, it's not so pricey. To go to a private/nicer room means I have to pay higher. I'm not sure if I'm up for it. Oh well, maybe, every now and then, I can spoil myself, a great big pat on the back for a job well done. I'm also hoping to treat Chase for a foot spa here, for some quality + healthy bonding moments. I also tried the massage not too long ago. I had access to the wet floors then. Although, the routine was a-ok, but the added facilities make the price worth the upgrades. The Spa = Happiness. What's yours? ;-D

Review: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Happy Monday! Pore-less? Getting there! ^_^ Anyhow, I actually consider my facial pores on the a-ok side, not too prominent, but not entirely pore-less per se. I'm still using primers and the likes to create the coveted effect, I have this and this too. But it takes seeing someone in person (outside of Korean Drama world...haha!) to truly dream of the beauty there is in being naturally pore-less because some people are just gifted....*sigh! envy much! It is such a beautiful trait to behold. So I told myself, hopefully it's not too late, to go for it. While, I know it takes a whole lot more to get a beautiful skin (diet + genes + cosmetics + lifestyle etc.), but hopefully with the advancements in skincare products, I can get there somehow. So here I am, committed more than ever to try out d.i.y. pampering treatment, and I just can't get enough of the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. ;-D

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask with Scoria and Green Complex. After reading about them from a friend, I tried a sample that was included on my recent eBay haul, and I got hooked. I just had to get more.  As you can see from the watermark, I have them a while back, they're included in my not-so-recent-Korean Cosmetics haul.
We don't have (yet) Innisfree Philippines, so I got them from my fave eBay seller. First off, this is not a sponsored post. This a buy-it-now eBay purchase for 10 pcs. Sells now for Php 22/pack. ;-D A pack goes a long way, about three applications, or if you're dead-serious in using them, a pack per week. I have about 5 packs left from about 15 packs...8 weeks more or less of using them. It's my mainstay mask. Not to preempt, but that's how much I like it.
Innisfree Jeju Volacanic Pore Clay Mask comes in 100ml tub. What it promises? Strong Sebum Absorption, Impurity Removal, Mineral Moisture Supply
Jeju Volcanic Cluster mask speaks of several reinforced benefits from the the Rare and Pure Ingredient of Jeju Volcanic Clusters. Read more about it in the official Innisfree Korea (in English yay!) Website.
It's a creamy clay-type mask. It's almost unscented.
Masked. It's easy to apply, no mess/frills application even. It doesn't harden/tighten. It won't hurt a bit too smile. ;-D  It just dries up, leaves a powdery feel.
How to use? Use it as you would a mask sheet.
  • After washing the face, apply toner, pat dry. 
  • Make sure to keep hair off the face, dot five areas (forehead, both cheeks, nose, chin), spread, massage gently in circular motion covering the entire face (or as needed). Option to cover thickly. I like to leave it thick. 
  • Leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  • Rinse with luke warm water. Finish off with cold water. 
  • Depending on skin type, you can opt to proceed to your usual skin care line (emulsion, serum, cream, etc.) 
I generally have a combination, sensitive skin type. Theatrics aside, with regular usage plus a suited basic skincare routine, the mask leaves the skin feeling and looking soft, supple, simply put, nice! It has pore minimizing/tightening and sebum-controlling effects without drying. In a way, it provides a good balance in terms of moisturizing and oil-control. If you'll read more of it here, I'm also keeping it handy for my seasonal breakouts. It has a calming, soothing effect, a la anti-inflammatory on small or medium, and red zits, that is if I'm sure they're not insect bites/itchy (then I applied something else ^_*). The first application leaves an instant soft and velvety feel. With my commitment to adhere to a day and night skin care routines, which suit me, plus using this mask regularly, I'm getting there...pore-less, hopefully youthful looking skin, the works. #myKoreanDream ^_^
Me, myself, & I, cosmetics free.  
I just have to say this again, I'm an avid fan of Korea Cosmetics, because I see Korean ladies (in drama and in person) being gifted with radiating beautiful skin, even without BB Creams and the works. Of course, a bigger credit could be with their vegetables-packed diet? Or just genes? Weather? Or maybe because their skincare and cosmetics industry is simply more than great? I think all of the above. So yes, on with being a Korean fangirl.

With my son, Chase. ;-D 
Overall, since the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is working mighty fine with me, I'm open to expand trying out their other lines (BB Cream, Sun Cream, etc.) I have few of them already, so please stay tuned for the reviews. I recommend it to those who have a combination (oily/dry) and sensitive skin. Will I repurchase? Definitely. In fact, I just did for another set of 10 sample packs, but my sister wanted them for herself. So I'm waiting for another good eBay deal. Or I might ask a friend to get it for me in Seoul for 12,000 KRW for the 100ml Tub. ;-D

Review: Etude House Moistfull Mask

Annyeonghaseyo! After almost three weeks of vacationing (traveling + spa here and there), I'm delightfully enjoying the return of d.i.y. pampering with Korean lovelies. Although, it's been a while since I indulged on Etude House's, but I'm swayed to do it more often now. Truth be told, although everything is so artfully packaged and prettily presented , not to mention that Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho used to be their mainstay endorsers (and I'm a die hard fan!), I didn't really take time to check out their skincare lines. Personally, I feel that I'm too noona-ish for their target market to join in the whole fanfare of being princessy and all. Haha! That's just also me sourgraping because SM Pampanga where a branch is located, is a mall that we don't frequent at all. But thankfully, I find myself being gifted with Etude House's products. My recent was from my favorite Korean eBay Seller, BHappywithMe. I bought a lot again (as in! ;-D), so for my freebies, she gifted me travel sets of Etude House Moistfull Collagen and Aloe Moistfull Soothing Collagen lines, plus a lot more. Moistfull skin care line in this summer heat? Why not? So I'm trying the line, slowly but surely starting off with the Moistfull Mask.
Etude House Moistfull Collagen Skin Care Kit comes with a Facial Freshener, Emulsion, Essence, Cream and Eye Cream
Etude House Moistfull Mask sells online for Php 50
 
Directions etc. are in Hangul, no visual guides too on how to use, but fret not...I'm an adept Korean Mask Sheets ++ user. 
How to use?
  • After washing the face, apply toner, pat dry. 
  • Make sure to keep hair off the face, put on the mask.
  • Leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  • Take off. 
  • If there are remaining essence on the packet, apply, massage, and leave on. 
  • No need to rinse off.
  • Depending on skin type, you can opt to proceed to your usual skin care line (emulsion, serum, cream, etc.) Personally, collagen/moisturizing masks of all sorts and brands will leave the skin uber dewy and moisturize, so I'm content to take a break on my usual moisturizers. 
Before. Fresh off the shower, cosmetics free. 
The mask sheet is thicker than the usual, it's soaked, but not dripping wet. I like it because the thicker, the more essence to enjoy. It has also a sort of perfect fit. I also like that in a way it covers my under eye (some can have a bigger eye hole that the mask will only cover the cheeks), so I get a makeshift eye masks too. It's lightly and pleasantly scented, that's a plus too.
It leaves a cooling and refreshing feel minus stinging. I love. After 20 minutes, I wanted to keep it longer since surprisingly it's not completely dried up, but I have to leave, so I took it off. There were a palmful of essence left in the packet, so I applied it, and tada! I'm moistfull! ;-D
It has a soothing and calming effect. And instantly clears away my dry patches near my mouth and lower cheek (because for the past weeks because of hurried morning travels, I skipped on my moisturizers, and my usual oily skin type turns to dry). 
Finally, someone came and was free to take my photo, instead of d.i.y. shots, so this is a better photo documentation (in terms of pixels etc.), taken with flash. I'm dewy, and glowing. ;-D
Loves:
  • Everything. ;-D I applied it in the middle of a extremely sunny day bereft of airconditioning, but it didn't feel too rich, and too greasy at all. It's as if I'm just wearing a healthy glow. 
  • No breakouts. I have a sensitive skin, so I can instantly see any adverse reactions, so I can usually tell right away if something is aptly suited or not. This one is definitely fine.
  • It's reasonably priced online (Php 50) and the upgraded Moistfull Collagen Mask in store sells for Php 98. 
Drawbacks:
  • None that I can think of.
Overall, luckily, I have another mask, so I'm giving it a try after a few days, and then get more online. And I can also try indulging into the upgraded Collagen available in-stores. Gradually, I can also incorporate the Etude House Moistfull Collagen lines in my night skin care routine. I'll let you know asap.  In the end, I'm not too old to be an Etude House princess every so often. ;-D

The Big Apple Express Spa

T.G.I.F. :-D I'm back to regular programming, meaning more "me" time, at least for the remainder of February and the first three weeks of March, until we have to do the major move back to Manila. Anyhow, I've been meaning to share our trip to The Big Apple Express Spa at the Robinson's Galleria Branch. It's such a special treat because officially, it's my son's first visit to a spa. Although, he's been getting his regular dose of massage from me, and every so often from a hilot when we're visiting Iloilo. If you remember my post here, we had a super extended stay at the mall, so after I had my nails done, we decided to unwind at the spa. It's about an hour before closing time, so we just had to get the 45 minutes treat for Php 299 each.
The Big Apple Express Spa Pampering Area
Chase at his first trip to The Big Apple Express Spa
Rooms and Beds.The Big Apple Express Spa is equipped with cozy treatment areas, separated by curtains and a sliding wooden door/partitions. 
Chase and I didn't fully doze off, because every so often, he couldn't help laughing and talking, but mostly he was amazingly quiet, and enjoying the massage. ;-D For Chase, I asked that they do a swedish + minor stretching routine. Mine was a combination or their signature massage. I like it. I'm really looking forward to trying them out because there's a newly opened branch at Marquee Mall. More than the basic routine, I want to try out the Balinese Massage for Php 499. My fondest memory of my previous trip to Bali, Indonesia was pampering myself with a 2-hr Balinese massage for $50, so I look forward to indulging yet again at a more reasonable rate. ;-D Overall, the place is cozy, and the beds/linens clean. The rates are also reasonable for a mall-based establishment. So yes, I look forward to indulging every so often.

Review: The Face Shop Face It Collagen Eyeliner

Hi there! As some of you may know I'm such a fan girl of everything-Korean, foremost I lavishly indulged on Korean brands for my skin care and makeup,  and it just gets so much better when I get to try out items for free... from giveaways, sponsors, contests alike such as my recent haul from The Face Shop. Except for the freebies, I've been using all of them for a while now. I have to say that the Collagen Eyeliner is now a mainstay on my makeup kit.
The Face Shop Face It Collagen Eye Liner Php 655
Not to preempt, but I love how it's newbie-friendly. I don't pride myself in being adept on eye makeup, (I'm seriously considering attending a makeup class very soon, once we move back to Manila, so hopefully, I'll do better.) So for the mean time, I'm going for a au naturel look + winged eye lines a la my favorite Korean Drama actress. ;-D
Product Description: The Face Shop Face It Collagen Eyeliner  is a liquid eyeliner with an eyelash essence for a complete and defined eye line.
- A smooth and even eye line as well as providing nourishment to lashes with the Hydra Collagen and P.D.O. provide rich nutrients to eyelashes.
- A smooth, continuous and refined eye line because of a perfect combination of a firm and delicate brush and smoothing gel formula enable easy drawing even with a liquid-type eyeliner with a single smooth stroke.
- May be removed thoroughly with lukewarm water without using an eye make-up remover to prevent loss of eyelashes and carefully protect them. 
Liquid eyeliner applicator wand. Tur to its claim, it does make applying easier. ;-D
Swatch. The applicator brush, depending on the level of precision on application, can create thin to bold eye lines, with an intense black color. 
Loves:
  • Everything about it! ;-D... the brush, the intense color
  • It's not waterproof, but if otherwise properly set with a primer or a powder to manage oiliness in the lids, it's almost smudge-proof, even after several rubbings. Since, I don't really do extended events, I'm fine with the lasting effect it offers. 
  • True to its claim, it's very easy to remove = no irritations and friendly to sensitive eyes like mine. 
Drawback/s:
  • Nothing major that I can think of, except a trivial issue on the item's glitzy packaging, since I keep it handy in my makeup kit, the prints on the actual product are fading and scratched.  
As for the nourishing claim, naturally, the fuss-free removal saves me from eye irritations and lash fall.  I'm still using the Lashem Lash Gel regularly, perhaps this essence from the Collagen Eyeliner reinforces the nourishing effect, hence for my healthier eyelashes. 

The Collagen Eyeliner is part of the featured The Face Shop Pastel Romance Spring Trend Make-up 2012. 
I 'm also using the Lovely Me:Ex Milky Tint in Pink, and the Petite Angle Blusher in Pinkish Shade too. I like. Park Min Young is looking mighty fabulous so I'm definitely on a quest to steal her look, even just a little. ;-D 
I recommend this formost to those who are not yet adept on liquid-type eyeliner application. It makes erasing (just in case) not tedious and saves the eye from further irritations, while leaving beautiful Hallyu-ish intense and pronounced eye lines. ;-D Will I repurchase? Although it might take me a while to finish this off, if there's no other like it in the market just yet, then yes. The added lash nourishing care is a big plus, indeed!

OOTD + Baguio Shopping Finds

I have to say that I'm falling in love with Baguio all over again, in fairness! Because the trip was a bit lengthier than usual with the major (!!!) road constructions at most part of Tarlac. I have a coming long post to novelize our recent trip. I love that all of us are feeling touristy this time around, so we just love to have our pictures taken all over, every time. ;-D This is Chase 4th visit to the City of Pines, but it's only now that he has fondest memories to speak of, he's totally nonchalant about the length of the trip, and how we're packed like sardines in our truck. The 17-20 °C (wishing that it could have been lower ^_^) great weather was a welcome reprieve, and an inviting day to dress up, so I sure did try my best to do just that. ;-D

Taken at the new Baguio Technohub inside Camp John Hay... O.O.T.D. Giordano Denim Dress / Accessorize Butterfly Scarf/ FitFlop Dash Boots/ Longchamp Plan├Ętes Black Short Handle (my favorite, ever-reliable bag when I'm traveling because it's roomy, while still being lightweight)/ A la leggings-type-thick stockings from Metro Gaisano Marquee Mall department store for Php 350+. 
Trying out DIY O.O.T.D. ;-D...taken at our  hotel room at Bloomfield Hotel. ;-D On a beauty/Korean fan mode, I'm trying out the LizK Color Veil BB Cream which I got from Wishtrend
This is such a funny pose... I think I'm naturally demure (haha!), that's us waiting for hubby to set the camera on time mode, and it captured way earlier, and tada! me...all prim and proper. ;-D
Naturally, I just couldn't help shopping too. Not in photos are the usual Baguio travel keepsakes and souvenirs (Good Shepherd Ube Jam, Lengua de Gato, Strawberry Jelly, Vegetables etc.). But I find these goodies worth sharing. :-D
Sagada Seedless Oranges...we bought 7Kilos in total from very insistent sellers at infront of The Mansion. They're really sweet and juicy (at least most of them). We bought them at Php 120-110 per kilos, only to be told by the next guy that he can do Php 90/kilo. :( They were also doing the packing so fast, that some old varieties were sneaked in. So my chic and sassy tips, haggle and take time to pick what they put in the bag. ;-D
Souvenir Shops at The Mines View Park...we got trinkets, and some bracelets for gifts (not in photos). A Php10 per piece can go 12 pcs. per Php 100. 
Bijoux Terner Belt Buckle Hinged Bracelets with Rhinestones for Php 550+ . Technically, this is not a native Baguio travel keepsake, but I got it at Mile Hi Camp John Hay. ;-D 
Saving for Sunny/Rainy Day...Esprit Folding Umbrella on sale at SM Baguio for Php 250. I bought two of these, one I gifted to my mom. 
Foldable Bags at a stall in Burnham Park ...duffel bag (Php 190), back pack (Php 190), multi-purpose bags (Php 50) with nice prints (Fifi Lapin in the house, owls, and more ;-D) They're not really not my needs, more of my whims. But they're pretty functional too. 
Kamagong and Wooden Woodcrafts... on our first ever stop at the Lion's Head, hubby bought right away a set of Kamagong Arnis Sticks for Php 250/set. I've been told that they could get pretty expensive in the city, so definitely worth checking out. ;-D
I'm starting my culinary plus medicinal herb garden, methinks. I bough these at The Orchidarium , Burnham Park...Sweet Basil, Lemon Balm, Lavender, Parsley, and Mint. Thank goodness they survived the long ride at the back of the truck, although I had to do some minor replanting when we reached  Our Lady of Manaoag Shrine. Chase is eagerly taking care of them.
With Chase. Enjoying the sights and some shopping at SM Baguio. 
If you're really into shopping mode, there are more things to buy in Baguio. They're definitely cheaper there, like the socks, and the hosieries for Php 100 each (stockings/tights/leggings all kinds ;-D) and even just the average socks that I used with my boots, in a store in Burnham park, they sell for 3 for Php 100, while I already got them at a bargain at Greenhills Shopping Centre for 3 for Php 180.  Scarves, gloves, beanies etc. too are sold cheaper in Baguio. Just keep your haggling prowess handy, and your money will go a long way. ;-D

My Royal Botanical Velour Juicy Couture Bag

Hello! Oh my, I've been on another hiatus since we went all touristy at Baguio for the weekend. As usual, we have tons of pictures, and my precious MacBook needs purging, and I almost missed on posting my bag love, it's my first ever Juicy Couture Bag, so it holds a special tendre. As you can see from the watermark, I have it for quite sometime. It's definitely a time tested functional beauty. ;-D

Juicy Couture Royal Botanical Velour Hand Bag. The multi-floral appliques and the matching oversized-floral and pompoms fob are love at first sight. ;-D So I just had to buy it. ^_^
Juicy Couture Royal Botanical Velour Bag YHRU2289 (MSRP $198) features gorgeous garland of flowers, a zip top closure, leather trim handles,  and piping along the bottom of bag, metallic hardware and cotton twill logo print lining
I love it more than ever because it's very roomy...can fit 2 Coach Pouches, wallet, and an iPad even. 
Juicy Couture Born in the Glamourous USA...love it! ;-D 
Anyhow, I wanted to document the ins and outs of the bag as a guide to distinguish the copies.

As most "original" brands, it comes with a YKK solid zipper. 
Intricate details all over...like the crown for Juicy Couture
Juicy Couture Crown Embossed  Logo 
High Quality Cotton Lining with prints plus more intricate details on zippers etc.. I personally know first hand that the copies may fool you because of the almost similar exterior details, but the inside/hidden details will usually fall behind on the quality. No loose threads/stitching etc... ;-D
More details/branding on the detachable floral and pompoms fob charms. 
This is my go-to bag (second to Longchamp) when I'm attending media events, and even school events, that needs me to bring in a lot of heavy artilleries (DSLR, iPad, more beauty tools, etc.) The roomy interior plus the solid handle attachments leave me worry free that my bag can hold the weight of everything that I stuffed to it, without compromising the form and the design of the bag. This may sound trivial, but I love the girly appliques/logo of Juicy Couture. I usually love seeing the signature bows and heart that usually come with the brand, so I'm eyeing on getting them next. ;-D Juicy Couture lovelies in the Philippines are available at Rustan's Department Store. I visited the outlet stores in the US, but the price is about the same, and the discounts not really near 50% off (unlike Coach), so it didn't compel me to get a Juicy then. But I bought this from a friend, in installment (;-D), which I fully paid (thankfully!;-D) at a bit higher than the MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price), but I really took my time in paying it, so not bad at all! ;-D

That's it for my Juicy Couture bag love chronicle. Cheers! ;-D

I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind.
