Me Now Pro Generation II Kiss Proof SoftLipstick (Powdery Matte)

I just received a package from Lazada, in the package are my new Me Now Kiss Proof lippies, shades #13 and #15. I love the shades, it looks expensive, but it just cost me Php 177.00 each. What I love about the product is the powdery finish matte. And it is indeed kiss proof!

Menow products are cheap, I have found websites like ebay which sells it at a cheaper price. Once applied to my lips, it dries right away. I tried drinking coffee and the lipstick didn't stain my mug. It has a light feel to it.

The only thing I don't like is that it smells like paint. But the smell disappears in a few minutes after applying it.

It has a nice packaging!

Inside the packing is the brochure, it has information about how to use the product.

I love the #15 shade, it has a natural look to it, my friend say that I look better with a nude color. But I still love the red shade #13!

                     #15                                                                                                                                 #13

And here it is! my look wearing the #13 shade! Love it!

Bohol 2015

It's summer time in the Philippines and that means travel for me. This time, we went to Bohol. We had limited time since we left our fury baby at home alone, so we only have  about 10 hours to spend.

From Piier 1, we were able to purchase a ticket to Bohol for only Php 350 via 2GO Supercat and left Cebu at 8:40 AM. We arrived at Tagbilaran City at approximately 11:00 AM.

We planned to go via Tubigon, since it's the one closest to the Chocolate Hills but upon researching online, there aren't that many for rent motorcycles there. It's not that industrialized yet like Tagbilaran City. And I contacted a few of the for rent stores but they said Tubigon is too far for them to travel. So we decided to go via Tagbilaran instead.

I tried searching online for motorcycles for rent and so far the lowest price I can find is Php 800 for 24 hour rent. When we got to the port, we noticed immediately that the port is under construction and we then found out that part or the port was ruined when the 2013 earthquake hit Bohol. I am glad to see though that Bohol is now slowly recovering from the 7.2 magnitude quake.

Just outside the port, we saw a store that's renting motorcycles, we got a Red Honda Beat 125cc scooter. I liked it! We got it for Php 500 for the 24 hours.You may contact Jerlyn 09198875935 if you want reservations ahead of time.

Below is out itinerary.


My very first time to see the chocolate hills and all I can think of is, they're really are chocolate hills! And I just thought, "WOW!, amazing creation"!  You could see green and chocolate colored hills as far as your eyes could see. It's all over the place!

Literally, they are brown - chocolate brown!

Tarsier Conservation Area in Loboc, Bohol

Entrance is just Php 60. About 8 Tarsiers are in the conservation. They were kept by private individuals in their own viewing quarters and kiosks have been brought to the Tarsier Conservation Area, a 6-hectare facility that is fully equipped and staffed. The move was done by the regional office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to transfer all 113 tarsiers to a more forested and more controlled sanctuary.

As per the tour guide, Tarsiers are suicidal. When they are stressed, they are known to smash their heads on the trees or any hard objects. Also, they are territorial, they patrol their branch/tree all day. Then leave the branch at night, then comes back in the morning.  As per the guide, they are known for their cute rat like singing.

Man-Made Mahogany Forrest

We also passed by the Mahogany Forrest in the town of Bilar. It's just a few meters after the Conservation Area. You'll know when you are there because it has about 2 km of Mahogany trees. Before and after you reach the man-made forest there are also naturally grown plants and trees of Loboc and Bilar..

This is a man-made forest was made after the word war 2 as part of the reforestation project because of an alarming deforestation at the time when people use kaingin system when they sought refuse during the war.


It has now become a tourist destination because of the formation of the trees. Tourists often post on the road with the forest on the background.

Rancho Cancio

Went out of town for the weekend to celebrate a friend of mine's birthday! Whenever it's his birthday, it's always been a bongga celebration and I always love it. I get to go out and have fun with my friends. Although I am not close to some of them, but we have spent time before while traveling to different places to party.

This time we went to Busay.

See the view? So in nature and refreshing! Infinity pool with the view of the city lights! Plus, the night air is just so cold and damp. It makes you want to take a plunge. That is if you want get chilled, literally!

 Time to lay back, relax and enjoy it while I can!

Met this cute doggie and got to play with him for awhile! I have always been a dog person, I got a soft spot for them in my heart and just seeing them so cute makes my heart melt!
