Jackie Chan Is Not Dead

Jackie Chan is a victim of a death hoax. According to a CNN report, that has caught fire on Twitter and other social media, the actor died of a heart attack at an LA hospital. The report however, turns out to be a sick prank by the owner of the blog called Skiphopz .

The article was put together using PasteHTML.com, a free service which allows users to paste HTML code and recreate a webpage without having to host it.

Real Italian Pizza

This is what real Italian pizza looks like:

Parma Ham and Rucola Pizza

Had this at Al Porto Pizzeria during a visit to Lake Garda in Italy. Thin crust with a thin layer of tomato sauce, topped with prosciutto di parma, parmigiano reggiano and rucola (rocket or arugula are the more common names). Notice how they're not scrimping on the toppings unlike most of our pizza places here.

Shu Uemura Mascara Length and Waterproof Review

The verdict: I absolutely love it!

It really doesn't disappoint and, true to its name, visibly lengthens my lashes. The brush of the applicator isn't much wider than the wand making it very easy to use especially if you have small, Chinita eyes like mine. There's also little to no flaking and clumping unlike the other brands I've tried.

Before buying the product, my friend assured me that it is waterproof. She went on to tell me that she even wore the mascara while swimming and yet, her eyes remained smudge-free. I wanted to find out if what she said had any truth in it so I decided to test it myself. I put on some mascara before taking a shower and lo and behold, it really didn't smudge.

I normally apply one coat for everyday use. You may also apply 3-4 coats for a more dramatic effect. Best to use the Shu eyelash curler before applying the mascara.

Shu Uemura Mascara Length and Waterproof retails at P1,700 and you may buy them at all Shu Uemura stores.

Follow them on Facebook for updates about workshops and sales.

Not really a big fan of Jollibee but this ain't that bad at all.

My Mid-year Wish List: MacBook

I think it's about time that I buy a new computer. My trusty little netbook, which I bought mid-2009, has been making whirring sounds for the past week and I'm scared that one day, it'll finally refuse to boot up. The noise usually happens on startup and continues for several minutes, stops, then starts again. I guess the fan is about to go kaput. That or I'd just abused it by playing Farmville, Frontierville, Market Street and Mafia Wars way too much. Prior to buying my netbook, I read somewhere that life expectancy for this thing is around a year or two. So I guess it's time to buy something new.

Here's what I'm planning to replace it with.

It's a good way for me to start being Mac-savvy as I've been a PC user all my life. I don't know how long I'd have to wait to buy one though. MacRumors  recommends holding off on buying it since updates are due soon. Price on the Apple Philippines store for a 2.4GHz  Macbook right now is at P51,990.

Killing Time

What do you do when your boss is late for a conference call or if you're bored at work. You research and watch useless things online.


I really am not sure what this video is all about. It's a bit disturbing but then I'm loving the music.

El Nido Resorts Palawan Summer Package

I have always wanted to visit El Nido Resorts in Palawan as I have heard and read a lot of good reviews about how beautiful the place is. Unfortunately, the place is too darn pricey for a middle income person like me. Good news is, they have an incredible 3D/2N package for either Miniloc Island Resort or Lagen Island Resort until the end of the month.

El Nido Resort Summer Package

For more info and reservations, visit the website of  El Nido Resorts.

Male Hygiene and Makeup

It's amazing what kind of products people come up with now. It's bad enough that companies always come up with useless things to push to women, but now these? Seriously.


Freshman Masculine Wash


Freshman Masculine Wash


According to their TV Ad, it moisturizes your skin, eliminates bacteria and gives you a cool feeling "down there". Since it has tea tree oil, they claim  that it has properties that "make it a popular natural agent for curing all three types of infectious organisms: fungus, bacteria, and virus".. It's also "not just soothing and disinfecting but it is capable of penetrating into the lower skin layers with its wound-healing qualities that boosts the immune system and helps in the healing of minor scrapes and wounds." 


Not sure about how guys feel about anything penetrating their privates though. 


Men Pen Concealer Stick



Men Pen Concealer Ad

I wonder if any of my metrosexual friends would consider buying this. 


Last but not the least...

PENI Fresh Antiseptic Male Organ Wash Soap


If you want your privates smelling like tutti-frutti, this is what you buy. According to their site, it is:
A must for all ages Teenagers; Bachelors Papas; Lolos Priests Brothers Monks and Gays!

I highly recommend that you watch the video.


Samsung Galaxy Tab Price Down

It now retails at P21,990. To buy or not to buy.

Shu Uemura Fever

In a previous post, I mentioned that I wanted to buy two more products from Shu--their award-winning eyelash curler and a mascara. Since they had a one-day sale earlier today at the Shu Uemura Rockwell branch and because of the constant nagging of a friend :), I decided to drop by and buy those two things on my To-Buy list.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Award-winning Eyelash Curler 


Shu Uemura Length and Waterproof Mascara Jet Black
Length and Waterproof Jet Black Mascara

I know it somewhat sounds funny that the eyelash curler is described as "award-winning", however, after doing some research, it seems that this curler really does a great job. It's even one of Catherine Zeta-Jones's favorite beauty products.


Will post more after I try them on.

For those living in Global City, Taguig who want a massage in the comfort of their own homes, you may get in touch with JBS Home Massage. I have been a customer for over a year now and every time I call, I make it a point to ask for Lolit.

There are several massage places in the area already like Ton Ton Massage, Big Apple Express, Neo Spa, etc, but there are times that you're just too lazy and would just rather have the masseuse come to your place.

Cut-out swimsuits are IN!

Apparently, cut out swimwear is now the trend. It's perfect for those who want to conceal a less-than-perfect middle or those who want to stand out among others who don the more traditional two-piece. Sure, a lot of the designs are lovely and eye-catching but one must wonder how funky the tan lines would look after taking these suits off.

These are a couple of pieces I saw on the Victoria Secret Swimwear page. I think they're absolutely lovely, especially the gold-trimmed one, however, I don't think I can wear it unless I only plan on parading on the beach and not really doing some serious sunbathing.

A Night of Music..and Drama

Next to Normal Poster
Photo from Atlantis Productions' Site
Watched the preview of Atlantis Production's "Next to Normal" last night at the RCBC theater.  I found it okay considering that I'm not really into musicals. The actors' singing and overall performances were much better compared to another production company's shows that I've seen recently. The story, well, there were funny parts during the first half, however, the second half was way too gloomy for me. A lot of drama and crying. That's just my opinion though. To each his own, right? What I found amazing was how the lead actress was able to sing while crying. Holding back all that snot while singing is no mean feat I think.

Anyway, for those who don't know what the story is about, here is an excerpt from Next to Normal's Wikipedia page:

"Its story concerns a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. The musical also addresses such issues as grieving a loss, suicidedrug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life." 

You may catch the show at the Carlos Romulo Auditorium on the 4th floor of the RCBC plaza building in Makati from March 11-27, 2010. For schedule and ticket info, visit the site of Atlantis Productions.

Shu Me

Went to an event last week and was fortunate enough to have had one of the Shu Uemura Rockwell artists do my makeup. I really liked the lipstick she used on me so I decided to go back a few days later and purchase it.

Here is my new baby.

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick WN 275
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited WN 275

I was quite content with the Clinique I've been using but I must say that this one is much nicer. Very smooth application, has a lovely shine that's not too glossy, feels light and does not dry my lips. It is a bit pricey at P1,350 but then I always believe that one should not scrimp when it comes to makeup.

 Next Shu items on my To-Buy list: ultimate expression mascara and their eyelash curler.

For a list of Shu Uemura locations in Metro Manila, click here.

Half off on Food and Drinks at the Balcony GastroPub

For those living and working in Makati, take advantage of this limited offer from Kuponan.ph and the Balcony GastroPub. Pay only P400 and get P500 worth of food plus six (6) bottles of any local beer valued at P899.

The deal ends in two days but the coupons are valid from March 15 to May 14.
