A Saturday of Eating and Shopping

My tita's friend and her daughter and her daughter's friend (phew!) came to the Philippines from Australia a few days ago. My sister stayed in their place when she was enrolling to one of the universities in Australia so now that they're here, we went out and treat them at Mall of Asia.

We got there around 4 in the afternoon. We decided to grab cakes and coffee at our favorite dessert place, Chocolat. I super love their cheesecakes and milkshakes. Also a favorite from there is their Death by Tablea.

We went shopping for a while. They were buying a lot! Around 6-8 pairs of shoes, bags of clothes and so on! While I, on the other hand, bought art materials for an oil painting I've been planning to do. :P My sis and I also went to Watsons to buy some toiletries and makeup (will be posting the stuff we bought later on this post).
For dinner, we went to Gumbo.
When we have no idea where to eat or if we aren't in the mood to experiment on trying a new restaurant, we always go for Gumbo. We really like the food there, especially their Baked Artichoke Formaggio and Strawberry and Chocolate Cheesecake! :P

A shot of our orders. That's quite a lot for us. We weren't able to finish it so we got it wrapped. Every dish was very DELISH!

Oh, and we also played with the crazy hats there! Haha! :)

So here's our little haul from Watsons.

My sister, Trace, bought the following (she's going to Australia and staying there for a loooooong while so she has to stock up on makeup since most of the makeup she uses are priced higher there):

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
(She was jealous of mine so she bought one for herself)

2 Nichido Black Liquid Liners
Nichido Spot Concealer in Natural

A Bonne Salt Scrub and Myra Vita White Whitening Face Lotion

Wet 'n Wild i-Shimmer

Fanny Serrano Two-Way Cake in Chino
(The other one is mine)

And I wanted to buy a cute blush but I didn't find anything of my liking today. So I just bought these:
3 Eyeliners from Wet 'n Wild:
MegaChrome Eyeliner Pencil Crayon Ligneur in 150
Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil in 130 Pixie
ColorIcon Eyeliner in 661C Amethyst

Celeteque Toner and Cyleina Soaps

And my purchase from a seller in Girltalk already arrived! Yaaaay!
MAC DSquared2 Sculpt and Shape Powder in Bone Beige Emphasize
So excited to use this new baby of mine. ♥
And before I end this post, I saw this earlier!!!
This is where Marionnaud in Mall of Asia used to be situated. Why is it gone?!?
Anyone knows if it's gone for good or is it just under renovation?
I wish it's just the latter.



  1. Why lots of makeup dear? :)

    I like the pink background for your photos. Is that your carpet? So pretty!

  2. hi sis, I saw that concealer sa nichido counters. first time nyo palang ba yun gagamitin?parang ok kasi yung pencil/stick form concealer :) mahal kasi yung sa body shop. thanks for sharing! inggit much, d pa ko nakapunta sa MOA. nakakatawa ano?hehehe

  3. Pink MagaLine - We love makeup! Some of what we bought were for restocking while some were just for trying them out. The pink background is actually a small pillow. :)

    Kath - We haven't tried it out yet eh. Maybe I can make a review about it. :)
    You should try to go to MOA. Pero agahan mo. A whole day is probably not enough to explore the whole place. Nakakapagod! :P

  4. Hope its not gone for good too!
