Still on LSS

Just recently found this cool..or I say hot video of my fave song ATM "Love The Way you Lie." It's from Eminem featuring Rihanna.

Eminem is still the best rapper! He rocks, so just awesome! Plus it's so hot that Megan Fox is burning here. ^_^ She's paired with Charlie of Lost. Love the idea of using fire in the video.

Go watch it. I'm still having an LSS.

That’s alright because i love the way you lie...

FOOD: Pancake House

Pancake House isn't new to our palate. We had it for a week when we had a medical event in Medical City, Ortigas. It was the nearest restaurant to our event venue thus we rented it as our HQ. We were hooked by then!

Last Saturday we suddenly missed it and decided to dine in there. But now we're in their Trinoma branch. We got there dinner time around 630 PM and it was full of family and couples dating. Good thing there's still a table left for us and we hurriedly sat down.

We already knew what to order as I can still remember their whole food choices but as they gave us their menu we were also handed with the Yogurt menu in which they called their version of fro-yo as Gurts and their Kids menu. Good thing I brought my li'l sister with us because they are introducing their newest offering for the kids. They even got balloons with "Welcome home, Kids" sign. Plus kids even got a surprise gift, a puppet made out of paper from Papemelroti. Really nice of them.

Here we are while waiting for our orders. What better way to do while waiting? Camwhoring :) I am sharing some of it. My sis was also offered an activity sheet and a new box of crayons to play around.

Mylalabs :)
Notice our cheeks? We really are getting bigger with all these pig-outs.

Their kitchen and staff

On Our Table

Pork Vienna PhP 208
Breaded lean pork, finely sliced, served with rice and coleslaw

My man's order. Three slices of pork, still in big servings. One cup of rice is not enough. The coleslaw is just ordinary.

Special Salisbury Steak PhP 208
Premium 1/3 lb salisbury steak topped with that creamy mushroom gravy and bacon bits

This is my order and I'm going to tell you to pass this one. It was so damn salty!! Ang ALAT sobra! I didn't finish it my taste buds just gave up. Though it is juicy but you won't really get even to half of it. It's a House Specialty, btw. But I can't seem to find the special part. I know I should just ordered my fave, Adobo Sulipan.

Mini Corn Dog PhP 105
Hotdogs coated in batter served with french fries and Western dressing

It's for my sis and it's part of their new Kid's menu. Three Tender Juicy regular hotdogs in half. That's it. Okay this is not healthy but kids are really attracted to hotdog. I can't stop her ordering it. Fries and dressing is commendable.

Bottomless Iced Tea PhP 63

Mocha Milk Shake PhP 134
A classic family favorite blend of mocha and chocolate, rich and indulgent

Nothing extra ordinary. Tasted like Milo with the milk shake thickness. Better if they served it a little bit colder.

Their staff are really attentive when called and specially when refilling our iced tea. But you need to follow-up what you said more than once! Other requests like table napkin or glass of ice took so long. The corn dogs are the last to be served after the kid waited for more than 30 minutes. To think it was just a hotdog right. I guess Medical City's branch is a whole lot better and cleaner. Nonetheless, it filled our tummies that night!

An 8% service charge was already included on our bill. They also offer delivery and in-store reservation.

Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Lava Love

I love Avon to bits. From their cosmetics to shampoos to intimate apparels, I have them. When I started to love makeup, my kit includes their lipstick and blushes. One look on their brochure and I am sold. Felt like scouring the mall for finds but just by reading. :) I even applied as an Avon dealer just to get 25% slash on their prices instead of buying from another dealer. Haha. Greedy much?

So my recent purchase from them is Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Lava Love. A rich, bright, glossy, "shouting" kind of red. Avon describe it as...

"24-hour moisture formula includes Allaintoin, Vitamins A, C and E and Jojoba Gel. Contains SPF 15 to help protect lips from sun damage."

  • Doesn't feel dry on the lips
  • Has rich, vivid color
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Brightens my face
  • Can be bought to almost everywhere as we all know there are a lot of Avon dealers
  • Has a lot of color options
  • VERY affordable

  • Staying power is same as most average lipstick. It easily goes off after you eat something.
  • Not sure if I can pull this everyday.
  • Of course, it always needs a lip liner to go with it or else it will bleed.

Will I repurchase?
Yes, definitely. But I'll try other shades first.

Always spot for Avon promos where they cut off prices and give you a very, very big discount. I got this for just PhP 199 from PhP 375. See? It's actually their lowest price this year.

Go to you nearest Avon dealer now and find a good budget buy too!

CBTL Frozen Swirl and Open House on Sunday

Hi bloggie friends! Yes, I'm still here. :) I miss you ladies. Anyway, I got to try CBTL's not so latest offering, Frozen Swirl. They entered the fro-yo scene and came up with their own version of it. There are two base flavors to choose from... The Original and Classic Vanilla. From the Original you can choose from Lemoncello, Berry'd Treasure, Pomegranate and Banana Caramel flavors. While you can either have Matcha Green Tea, Affogato and Caramel Affogato flavor with Classic Vanilla. But they have a Mystery flavor too! You need to say the code first to your barista before you can avail it. Just say "Awesome" and you can get Hazelnut flavored yogurt. How cool is that right? And that's the flavor I tried on Trinoma weeks ago just when they started to offer it in that branch.

Here's our scene:
Me: Which is better Hazelnut or Caramel Affogato?
Barista: They're both good but I'll go for Hazelnut.
Me: Alright. I'll have the Hazelnut.
Barista: Sorry Mam, you can't avail it unless you say the code.
Me: Okay. Awesome.

And we both laughed. Haha.

Honestly, I'm shy to say I want an Awesome please though I know that's the way it should be when you want it. Is it just me? :) I even asked him why they have to do that and what's so special with their Hazelnut flavor. Of course, we all know the answer.

It's my first time to try it and IMHO, I don't dig their Hazelnut flavor. Even if they claim it's that awesomely good! One big reason: I don't want hazelnut. It tasted like a yogurt with a peanut buttery taste-like syrup. Very nutty flavor indeed. Aaack I don't want nuts on my dessert. Haha. I know silly me for ordering it but they got me with their marketing/mystery flavor startegy. Also, it's called Frozen Swirl but where's the swirl part on my order? The one I had looked like a melted yogurt swirl. Is it really like this? But don't get me wrong here. My man loved it. I ended up giving it to him together with his order of Vanilla Ceylon Iced Tea.

And now great news... CBTL is having another Open House for their Frozen Swirl on Sunday. Yes, it's free. Visit their Trinoma, ATC and Rockwell branch from 10 AM - 12 NN. I'm not sure if I can make it but I'll definitely try Caramel Affogato this time. See you!
