One Summer Day


This would be a perfect outfit to wear to the beach, minus the wedges, of course. But the problem is my whole summer is preoccupied with internships. I'm having my hospital internship this month and soon I'll be staying in Antipolo (roughly a 2-hour ride from Manila) for my manufacturing internship this May. We are required to finish two hundred working hours for each area, and this will take up my entire summer. So you see, I don't have time to bask under the sun, swim and just do whatever other people are doing right now. It's so hot here in the city and everyday I can't help but think about the fun  my friends are having in various places around the world.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS... I'm finally graduating this October!!! I'm sure all my hardships and sacrifices would be worth it once I receive my diploma. And an additional "RPh" after my name wouldn't hurt either. :)

Savoy Bistro


Ryan celebrated his graduation at Savoy Bistro located at Kalayaan Ave., Makati City. The place is filled with various furnitures and paintings that are for sale. It can only accommodate several people so the ambience is kind of intimate. Everything was just so beautiful and I admit that it made me pretty excited.

Appetizers and the pasta were served first. And I must say, I was impressed. But my satisfaction ended there. We were almost full just by eating the appetizers because the soup and the salad took too long to be served. And worse, we waited for almost an hour before the main course came. It was getting late, all of us weren't in the mood to eat anymore and we were actually deciding among ourselves whether to cancel all our unserved orders or not. Since we wouldn't want to waste this opportunity to try out their main course, we decided to push through with our orders. The main course dishes were good but we would have appreciated them more if they were served on time.

We ordered a few desserts for us to share. We had two orders of their Mango Jubilee and one was given within a few minutes. We waited some more for the second one but it was taking too long. We asked one of the staff to check out the dish and it was discovered that the one who took our orders forgot to forward it to the kitchen. Considering that we were the only group left in the restaurant, their service was pretty bad.

In general the food was good, so is the place. But the whole dining experience would have been so much better if they improved their customer service.

Despite all these, everyone had a great time. We were able to do a lot of catching up. The feeling to be able to talk about anything and everything was just so wonderful. :)

Shu Uemura Mousse Foundation

I have been on the lookout for the perfect foundation for a while now. When going to parties and events, I only use BB cream because they already provide enough coverage for my face. BB creams are no doubt, my best friends when it comes to day makeup. However, during formal parties and events, everybody would be wearing full makeup while I looked like I had been working the whole day and hadn't even bothered to apply makeup. Even if I could say that my face doesn't need heavy coverage to conceal blemishes, I think it would still be necessary to have a trusty foundation that I could use from time to time.

Say hello to the Shu Uemura Mousse Foundation in Light Beige! This will give your face a nude and sheer finish. Similar to the effect of BB cream, this foundation when applied looks very natural and gives you a certain glow. The feeling on your face is very light, as if you aren't wearing any makeup. Surprisingly, this is even lighter than BB cream. This is perfect for those who prefer light coverage, but still heavy enough to be used for formal gatherings and events.
