Denim Shorts

Although summer is already over, I’ve noticed ripped, dip dye, printed, studded denim shorts are so IN nowadays. Wearing shorts show a casual look and definitely perfect for any day. You can pair it with a shirt, sleeveless, vest, or any formal top. But did you realize that finding a perfect denim shorts is a bit stressful and pricey too.

Yes, I’m a denim shorts lover ever since. Probably it describes something about my layback attitude. Aside from that its very comfortable wearing shorts especially the weather in the Philippines is a bit humid. Just to share some denim shorts that I have. 🙂

Lately, I’ve been eyeing some DIY shorts online. From the phrase DO IT YOURSELF (DIY), means you can actually do or make this type of shorts at home by simply modifying, repairing your old shorts into something new. The fact that doing your own shorts, will save you a lot of money. I love to do my own DIY Shorts, I tried it last year by simply cutting my old pants and add ripped designs. But now, It seems that I don’t have enough time to do it because of my time demanding job. While browsing online I feel so envious looking at these designs from HEYLILAHEY. It looks so pretty and good right? The styles are really fashionable and unique.

You can actually put some colored dye instead of bleaching the denim shorts to add more style. It will also show the artistic side of you. I know it will be fun doing this. For me, I hope time will permit me today this, probably one of these days.

Skin Food

The first time I tried this product, I feel in love. It’s very good for the skin. And reading a lot of good feedbacks, I can certainly say that I can trust the product. Skin Food products were recommended by my sister in law from Vietnam. She brought some when she spent her vacation here and shared it with me. I’m so lucky to have wonderful people around. 😉

Skin Food (Hangul: 스킨푸드) is a South Korean cosmetics manufacturer headquarter in Seoul. The owner of the company has been involved in the skincare business since 1957. The main concept of the company is to create products with nutritional values of food.

My top picks for now:

My Verdict: It gives you soft and smooth skin. You can feel that it cleanses your face. Rate: 5/5

I was able to see one of their stores in MOA but I haven’t paid a visit yet. Probably one of these days, so that I can check what are some good finds there. Skin Food are located nationwide here in the Philippines . You can check their SITE for more information.

I’m not vain but it’s actually good to be vain sometimes. ♥

Korean Ice Cream

I can still remember the moment Sandara Park( now Dara of 2ne1), joined Star Circle Quest and how Filipino fans admire her and everything about her successful life is a history. The next thing I know, Korean craze for TV Series, Movies , Artists, singers invaded Philippines as fast as a blink of an eye. I would agree I’m one of those getting gaga over watching Korean TV Series, Artists and all. A lot of Korean tourists are visiting here in the country also. But there’s more, I’ve been seeing a lot of Korean Stores also selling Korean food, stuff and etc. and a lot of Filipino love it . Since I’m such a Korean fan, I’m also curious to try something Korean. Although I remember, I tried eating Kimchi didn’t pass my taste. But how can someone resist trying Korean Ice Cream. *grin*

I was lucky to find one at the Waltermart Mall in Makati where we usually do our weekly groceries. It’s been a routine that when I go there, I try different ice cream flavor. And yes, I’ve tried most of their ice creams. Out of excitement, I didn’t bother checking the price when I bought it. I know I’m such a loser. But all I can remember, it ranges from Php35-Php50, very affordable. It’s very delicious and perfect for an afternoon snack too.

Korean Ice Cream

For Korean they call the waffle ice cream as Bungeoppang (lit. “crucian carp cake/bread”), the term they use for Taiyaki. The Binggrae (빙그레, Bing-Geu-Reh) Company, made it popular and offer different type of ice cream based on bungeoppang.

My Verdict:

Pangtoa Cookie and Cream Flavor – one of my favorite ice cream sandwiches. the waffle is soft and it’s a perfect combination of the ice cream flavor. Rating: 5/5
Melona Melon Flavor Ice Bar – my other favorite. this is very addicting. the melon flavor is very delicious. Rating: 5/5
MetaCone Strawberry – it’s actually similar to cornetto and the strawberry taste is really good. Rating: 4.5/5
Melona Ice Waffle Strawberry and Chocolate Flavor – i love the icecream flavors but it’s too sweet for me. i don’t really like the outside waffle also. Rating: 4/5
Melona Mango Flavor Ice Bar – this is too sweet. Just a regular ice bar flavor. Rating: 3/5

Melona is a South Korean melon-flavored ice pop, manufactured by the Binggrae Co. Ltd. Although the product is called “Melona” and is identified by its melon flavor, the ice pop also comes in other fruit flavors. Each 80 ml/2.7 fl oz bar contains 130 kcal of energy as of 2009. Melona is very popular in South Korea, where it broke many sales records upon its introduction in the 1990s.

So far, these are the Korean Ice Creams that I’ve tried. And I have yet to try another set of different flavors, I’ll update you soon. xoxo
