My First Salad of 2016

One of my goals this year is to eat healthy. Yep, you read it right. Eat healthy. Believe me, I also thought it was impossible, given the fact  that I love food so much. I have this preconceived notion that healthy food are bland and not delicious. So to start slow, I made a resolution for 2016: a goal to 'eat five different salads'.

Five won't hurt, right? But I found it hard to do. I don't know... maybe salads are more expensive; or maybe greens are harder to pick up with fork. I found the solution when I visited the nearest 7-Eleven store. On the food shelf was a Chicken Caesar salad in tortilla form. Sweet!

It looked inviting and delicious! I knew it was the opportune time for me to finally start on my goal. It's a salad... and it solves the price and fork problem. So here it goes...

Crispy. Cheesy. Yummy.
A contrast of soft tortilla wrap and crispy lettuce is the first thing you will feel in your mouth at first bite. Next would be the dominant flavor of cheese slowly melting on your tongue. Lastly, at the climax of it all, is the subtle chicken meat at the bottom of the wrap. I like the chicken because it was unflavored. I mean, no salty stuff added. Simple as that.

The Chicken Caesar wrap... now, I'm starting to believe that there are yummy and healthy food, too. But uhm... for the size of those wraps, it was just enough for a snack. I'll try out big salad dishes next time, okay? For now, it was a good start.

So there goes my 1 out of 5 salads for 2016. I'll share with you my journey with salads starting now. Hahaha~ Hopefully, it doesn't end with just five. (^_^)v

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
