My Hua Mulan Treasure

I have been eyeing those beautiful combs on display whenever I pass by the Hua Mulan kiosk in SM Megamall. They were so pretty that I made it one of my commitments to save up for it. Thankfully, the day for me to buy one finally came. 

I visited the Hua Mulan SM North Annex branch. I'm glad that it was the store that I chose because the sales assistant was very knowledgeable about their products. She knew what was perfect for my type of hair. She recommended for me to have the wide toothed goat or ox horn comb. All of the designs she gave me were so good, I wanted them all. But alas! I was only able to buy two. 

The sandalwood combs look nice too. However, the sales girl told me that wooden combs are not supposed to be used for wet hair. Of course, water might make the wood brittle. So after some time of choosing, I had to buy this...

Pretty, isn't it? The comb looks so antique and royal! It looks heavy but it is actually very light. Horn is made of Keratin after all. It is translucent, too! That is a plus on its beauty! Here is a closer look...

Since a lot of combs on display were so beautiful, I decided to buy one for a friend, too. This Peach Wood comb is so feminine. The engraving on it is so pretty! I just love the overall look and the details!

You gotta love the girly details! 
Goat horn, ox horn, and wooden combs also claim to have some good benefits in accordance to traditional Chinese medicine. I don't know if its for real. But the reason why I bought these Hua Mulan combs is because they look good! And that is enough! 

These combs are so feminine but I can't help remembering one of my life's theme songs:


You must be swift as the coursing river.
With all the the force of a great typhoon.
With all the strength of a raging fire.
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon.



I love my Hua Mulan combs! It reminds me of being beautiful, without forgetting to be tough as a man!

[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

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
