Road Trip 2011

During the Holy week vacation, my cousins and I went to Ilocos Norte for yet another Road trip and this time, it is at Ilocos Norte, Burgos, Kapurpurawan White Rock formation,  (from the root word "puraw" which means white in the local dialect) , because of its uniqueness, is a popular destination. Hordes of travelers and sightseers flock there to take pictures.  A very Photogenic place indeed! :) 

It is just breathtaking! :)








After the slight trekking, we went further up north at Blue Lagoon Pagudpod.  We had our lunch by the beach and simply enjoyed the awesome blue sea and white sands.  Perfect Day! AWESOME...Philippines! ;)

Bikini Days of Summer


Hubby and I at CARAMOAN Beach 2010
I am already excited for my summer vacation :) Filed for vacation leave already for the entire week next week to head to Vigan for a family vacation.  This is the only time of the year that I can easily lounge on the beach as our home there is just beside one...wohoo! time to hit the beach and wear those new bikinis..all set! But quite honestly,  I am not sure though if I AM bikini ready! haha! I tried to cram for the last 2 weeks at the gym hoping that I'd lose all those flabs and pounds...but hey, at least I tried! :)

Here is video of ME yup "mwah" at the gym working my ass off!.  In this video is my instructor, of course, giving me a hard time and just wouldn't give me a break! literally! I've been training with him for a year already and his workout sessions are more on CROSSFIT training.  This one is more on varied movements in repitions.  Meaning, i dont repeat a work out every single session! And the workout is tailored for me to focus more on cardio, core and stamina!

Excuses for the long video and sideways view, should be okay though. hihi! :)  FYI. I almost quit during the plank poses with the leg twist for the core work out! Had to do all 5 workouts in 5-6 sets, that part was the hardest! Augh! really good luck to me! =)  Anyhow, I hope you enjoy your summer vaca guys! Ciao!

Blue Blooded

Cousins Paul and Tet treated us for dinner last Thursday night.  It was our Despedida for Paul who is leaving for Singapore again for work.  Ate at Fusion Restaurant Little Asia at Greenhills.  Food was just wonderful! ;))

These are my cousins who I constantly see and it is just endearing that no matter how busy our own separate familiy lives may be, we still find time to meet up.  This dinner was just one of them.  Thought I'd introduce them to you guys..but first I had to show OTD! :) Isingit tlaga! (haha, i just to show my outfit first ey! )

Color my world

Recently I have enrolled myself to make-up academy at Cheryl Cabanos Make-Up Acedemy (CCMA).  Have enrolled only for a Personal make-up class to further enhance what I already know or perhaps "correct" what I knew about make-up techniques...hehe ;)  Yup, and did you know that to achieve the "Smokey eyes" look, the stroke should be ascending and not horizontal?! :) ahh and thought those youtube videos were answer to everything..lol ;))

I have yet to decide whether to take up diploma classes and take it one step further,  but for now, its been useful for my everyday look at the office...and taking the "no make-up look" further up a notch ;)  see the BEFORE and AFTER looks during our classes ;)...

the "NO MAKE-UP LOOK"

  Before-- "excuse my fat face!  Boo!" =)

 AFTER :)


So happy to learn how to contour my face... I was able to make my square face look thinner...yay!  Achieve! :)

Some photos with Ms. Cheryl C. (in the middle) and classmate Cristy.



 And the "Smokey eyes" session was so much fun too..super photo op.. hehe =)

The Before Photo..and some professional students had to do a practical exam on my hair, doing the curly hair through the flat iron, i must say...good job! just that i look harrassed in this photo...sorry :)


This is Irene's Before photo

Cristy's Before look :)

Good Job on the curls! =) CCMA is not only for Make-up classes, they also do classes on Hair Do's..the total package especially for those students aspiring to be professional make-up artist..


AFTER "Smokey eyes" look...more practice though for me..I think :) I used the dark Brown Eye shadow...How'd I do??

Irene on her Blue smokey eyes

Cristy on her Dark brown Smokey eyes...same as mine =)


Teach cheryl had to style my hair to complete the look ...

 This is teach Cheryl..taking our photos...proud teacher!

Some more photo taking... excuse us...so excited! 










Our "emote" look...smoldering look!!
