If you watched a kdrama in one day, you'll definitely need an eye mask for your puffy eyes the next day. Haha! Good thing I have the Costopia Eye and Double Chin Masks! This is the cutest packaging ever!

What makes it different from other masks?
Lifting and nutrition care at the same time.
Has elasticity sheet to hold. Like jelly.
Has double layered fabric that maximizes tension.
Instant colling and lifting effects.
Has natural ingredients for skin soothing.

THE DIFFERENCE OF THE TWO VARIANTS

LOVEHEART ❤️❤️❤️

  • Has plenty of vitamin contents.
  • Has Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract for skin elasticity and whitening effect
  • Has Rosa Hybrid Flower Extract for nourishing and antifungal effect on skin


HONEYSTAR 💜💜💜

  • Helps with moisturizing and antioxidant care.
  • Has Honey Extract for skin elasticity and whitening effect
  • Has Propolis Extract for nourishing and antifungal effect on skin


COSTOPIA EYE MASKS


Best To Use For:

  • Lack of elasticity and powerless eyes
  • Cooling calm and tired eye care



How To Use:
You can use this after cleansing your face and using toner. Open the the pouch. Remove the transparent film from the mask. Stick to the bottom of the eyes. Leave the mask on for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove after.

Tip: Store in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before use for double cooling effect.


VERDICT:

True to its claims, it does really soothes the under eye area. It has that cooling effect which lasts longer than the usual eye masks. The gel is not the 'ewwwy' type but it holds to skin really well. I really needed this because I usually sleep late at night and wake up early the next day. It has been my routine and this really helped. I can definitely recommend this to you girls. My eyebags brightened up a bit. I prefer the Honeystar Mask though. 💜


DOUBLE CHIN MASK


Best To Use For:

  • Double layered chin to worry about taking picture.
  • Sensitive skin due to seasonal changes.
  • Decreasingly elastic cheek, face line.



How To Use:

You can use this after cleansing your face and using toner. Open the the pouch. Try to align the mask first on your face. Remove the transparent film from the mask. You need to put your ears into the hole of the mask so it will stretch the mask out. There will be a force lifting your chin up. Attach the crown patch to both cheeks. Remove after 20 to 40 minutes.

Tip: Store in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before use for double cooling effect.


VERDICT:

As what the product claims on the website, the outcome might be different from each individual. I have a double chin and I thought it might be perfect for me. When I used this, I was not that comfortable since I am not used on the force on my ears going down to my chin and it doesn't fit that well on the chin-neck part. Though I think the force is really helpful to lift that double chin up.


I highly recommend the Honeystar Eye Masks. 💜 I really liked it. It is more moisturizing for me and it brightened up my circles more than the other one. As for the Double Chin Masks, I am really not sure about this. I am not that impressed though this is just my opinion and based on my preference.

There are so many reasons why I feel like it is the perfect kdrama of all time and I'm gonna convince you to watch it if you haven't. 😉 I think this is my movie review too. Haha!  I'd rate this kdrama with a perfect 5/5. Keep on reading so you'll know why!

Aozora means Blue Sky. Hence, Aozora Japanese Restaurant is the place where your taste meets the sky. It is the perfect ambiance for those who crave for extraordinary food in an ultimate dining place. I've been wanting to try this restaurant for so long. One of their branch is just a few minutes walk from our house. I finally got to try it for the first time yesterday for lunch.

Manila, Philippines - Leading food and beverage kiosk operator, Fruitas Holdings, Inc. (FHI), listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange under the symbol FRUIT, has donated Php100,000 cash and Php100,000 worth of goods including water and juices to the municipality of Taal. The residents of Taal were affected by the major ashfall brought about the Taal volcano eruption.

“It has been always our mission to give back to the community and help our countrymen in times of need” said FHI President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Lester Yu. “Since our listing on the PSE, we are more empowered to provide meaningful service to Filipinos” he added.

The mayor of the heritage town of Taal, Hon. Pong Mercado, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Fruitas for generously contributing towards the repair of rehabilitation of the community.

Fruitas had also donated 200 boxes of Fruitas bottled water last January 14 and 15 for the displaced individuals and families from the volcanic disaster. Bottled water was disseminated through the help of ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya and GMA Kapuso Foundation, the company’s partners for this endeavour.

These latest initiatives form part of the Touched by Fruitas program, which also community feeding, scholarship grants, basketball clinics, and local community support. The growth of the company has enhanced its ability to extend service and give back to Filipinos.

From a single Fruitas stall opened in 2002, the group ended 2019 with 1,068 stores across the country and over 20 brands in its portfolio, which includes well-loved food concepts Fruitas Fresh from Babot’s Farm, Buko Loco, Buko ni Fruitas, De Original Jamaican Pattie, Johnn Lemon, Juice Avenue, Black Pearl, Friends Fries, The Mango Farm, 7,107 Halo Halo Islands, Shou La Mien Hand Pulled Noodles, and Sabroso Lechon.

It's almost Valentine's Day! Do you have plans already? You might wanna try Matgalne Korean Restaurant in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. You can never go wrong with Samgyup and Hotpot for a date, right? Or you could also bring your family and friends instead, if you don't have a date yet. Hehe!

📍 Matgalne Korean Restaurant, Laguna Central, Don Jose, Sta. Rosa, Laguna


Found another hidden gem here in Tagaytay! SKYPIEA Rooftop Bar and Kitchen is perfect for students, millenials and families who are looking for a budget friendly bar and resto. We got to try some of their best sellers and they did not disappoint. And if you like ONE PIECE, you'll love it here!

📍 Skypiea, San Jose, Silang Junction South, Tagaytay City, Cavite


Location: 3rd floor above Mang Inasal near rotonda, across FORA Mall


ONE PIECE THEME


SKYPIEA MENU

Skypiea Menu (January 2020)

Opening Hours: 10AM to 1AM. Mondays to Sundays.

But since the taal eruption, there might be changes on their schedule. Please follow them on Facebook or Instagram to get updates.


Since this is a rooftop bar, you may see this view (if you look over, lol). I took this photo three days before the Taal Eruption so the view there might be different from this one.



Perfect place to chill especially with friends or family.

FOOD


The food here is good and affordable. Sobrang sulit!


Mozzarella Sticks (99 pesos) - I can't believe that this is only 99 pesos?! The dip goes well with the sticks. It makes the sticks not nakakaumay/fed up, but not overpowering.

Doflamingo (169 pesos) - This is their crispy chicken skin nachos. I love chicken skin so I am so happy they have this! Haha.


⚓ Sabo Chicken Burger (179 pesos) - Savory chicken burger. The chicken patty was huge. See that? Sulit talaga!


⚓ Tapa Unli Rice Meal (139 pesos) - 139 pesos for unli rice? Okay na din! And it's tapa.

⚓ Cheesy Bacon Meal (99 pesos) - Does this one look 99 pesos?! Haha! Looks gourmet to me!


⚓ Le Poutine (153 pesos)

⚓ New Orleans Pizza (349 pesos)

Verdict  4.0/5

It is another restaurant that proves you don't have to spend much to eat and chill in Tagaytay. My is only concern is the place. It is located at the fourth floor of the building/rooftop. Just don't drink too much! Haha. Magtira kayo ng pang-uwi if you don't wanna go rolling down the stairs 🤣

I was still in high school when I last went to Baguio. My Mom and I went there for a couple of times already when I was still a child. I'm really happy I was able to visit Baguio again after a long time. Sadly, not with my Mom anymore. Maybe it's time to create new memories here in Baguio.

After more than 10 years, a lot has changed in Baguio. Or maybe I just expected too much? I feel like it lost its spark. Anyway, I will be sharing with you my last trip to Baguio last January 2020 and a few travel guide & tips. Another long post ahead! ⚠️

There are a lot of restaurants in Baguio but I only got to try the famous Oh My Gulay when I went there last month! Haha. I was interested to try this restaurant because of the reviews I saw online. It is pretty famous and is highly recommended by most people.

My Mama and I had a staycation at Microtel by Wyndham South Forbes before 2019 ended. It is just less than an hour away from Tagaytay, but why not? Right? Hehe!

Location

Address: South Boulevard, South Forbes Golf City, Brgy. Inchican, Silang, Cavite, Philippines 4118

The hotel is a few minutes away from Solenad and Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna but it actually a part of Silang, Cavite.


I was amazed how it is peaceful here despite the traffic on the main road which is perfect for staycations plus the pool! We didn't get to swim though. It was cold in Tagaytay so I thought the weather there would be the same but it is actually warm there. Sayang! Hehe.


This is the entrance going to the hotel lobby and the restaurant.

Tachibana Japanese Restaurant

They have a Japanese restaurant at the lower ground floor of the hotel. You'll easily see this because it just adjacent to the hotel entrance. We tried this for dinner. We ordered their Shoyu Ramen and it is good.

Queen Double Room


The hotel room is simple, clean and I didn't expect that it would be this spacious. This is perfect for families.

Bathroom



P.S. I forgot to take photos before going in. These are from our check out time so the sheets are messed up. Haha! Sorry!

Breakfast Buffet


The breakfast buffet was not included in our reservation but we availed it just because Mama doesn't want to go out and walk to look for a nearby restaurant. There's a shuttle going to nearby areas like Paseo if you like to go out for breakfast. There's also a supermarket just across the street.


The breakfast buffet offers Filipino food, breads, and cereals. The food was okay. This is actually the Tachibana Japanese Restaurant. In the morning, it serves breakfast buffet to their guests. After that, it would go back to their usual Japanese menu.

Thoughts

I like it here but I just hope that there would be restaurants and cafe nearby soon. Their staff are very friendly and accommodating. They always greet us and smile. The room is impressive and perfect for staycation.
