Spending Christmas 2012

This Christmas season has been busy for me. Though we took vacation from work, I go out almost everyday. One reason is to buy gifts. The other is family bonding. Yesterday was December 25, Christmas day! I spent time going out with my family and attending Church. 

First stop: lunch at Lugang Cafe. This restaurant serves Taiwanese food. My family enjoyed their bestseller Pork Xiao Long Bao. I found it hard and complicated to eat, as you have to be careful not to rupture the skin. However, being me, I took one piece and never cared if it got ruined. I love eating to be careful!

Next, we attended the Holy Mass at the nearest Church. Celebrating Jesus' birth is the main reason for Christmas. The church was overflowing with people! I found it a wonderful sign that the Filipino people still hasn't forgotten the value of Christmas. Sorry, but we didn't take photos at the church.

For dinner, we didn't eat much because of the heavy lunch earlier. Instead, we shared three slices of pizza for the five of us. It was my first time to eat at Nolita pizza, as well. The food there is worth mentioning.

Of course, everything won't be complete without desserts! Cakes at Slice were so good! Me had Mochamisu cake and Choco-Yema cupcake. Yum! We were too excited to eat the food that we didn't think of taking pictures of us with the it! Attack!

After spending some time browsing books in Fully Booked, the time came that we need to go home. In case you haven't noticed, we spent Christmas food tripping. Our love for food runs in the family! And I am not complaining! 

But before I end this post, let me share with you a nice picture of our pet named Kookie. She made me smile this Christmas day as well.

I thank God for these moments shared with my family. Beyond material gifts and food, being present for this season with your loved ones is still the best! Thank you everyone for the Christmas gifts that I received! Thank you, my readers for continuously supporting my blog. You are gifts to me as well! I hope you had a well-spent Christmas too!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
