Korean Products Haul


I'm like a kid unleashed in a candy store yesterday. I couldn't resist, I end up buying some stuff. And just like what I've said they are very affordable.

1) Eye & Lip Make-up Remover (₽159)
2) Eye Lash Curler  (₽99) - 
3) Composite Powder Puff - ₽99 - I want to try beauty blenders, kaso medyo pricy sa Watson's, that's why I get this, for 99 pesos dalawa na agad.
4) Bamboo Charcoal Compressed Mask - (₽99) - at first I thought it was candies, but it turned out to be face masks. I mean, hello that's a lot of face mask for ₽99.

5) Shower Gel in Jasmine (₽129) - 
6) Flower Dance Perfume in Pink (₽289)
7) Matte Nail Polishes in Black & Red - (₽99) 
8) Beauty Scissors (₽99)

I also bought some things from Wedo Shop, they have the same concept as Ximiso, but I think Wedo was the first Korean store in Festival Mall. Here are some of them:

9) Matte Liquid Lipstick in #7 (₽49)

Never talaga akong lumabas ng store ng ganito kadami bitbit ko, not even when I go to Watsons. I was so entertained by their Korean products. I'll definitely go back in this place.

Ximiso - Korean Fast Fashion Brand

Yesterday I was looking for random decoration materials at the mall, then suddenly I was drawn by this new Korean fast fashion brand boutique. Oh! em gee, as in literally, I was balling my eyes out for an hour or so, staring at every products they have because they're so cute and also affordable. 

The store's name is Ximiso, its like Daiso from Japan but its more on fashion and beauty products.
Well, if you're a KDrama and KPop fan, then probably you already know how much they invest on cosmetics. 

 I took some photos, so you'll have an idea on what's inside the store.

This is what it looks like from the outside, it says "Ximivogue"

Paradise

When she was just a girl,
She expected the world,
But it flew away from her reach,
So she ran away in her sleep.
And dreamed of para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Every time she closed her eyes.

When In Dreamland.

After we went to Caleruega we dropped by to Dreamland Arts and Crafts Café for lunch. Dreamland is one of the those "trendy" cafes today where you can hang-out with your friends play some board games or just chill, they also sell handcrafted stuffs. Again sorry for the blurry photos.

From the name itself "Dreamland Arts and Crafts Cafe" talagang "artsy" ang cafe na itey. Aside from crafts, they also have nice foods like pastas, sandwiches, smoothies, lemonades, frappes and desserts.

At Caleruega

Typically my birthday falls on Holy Week, so I'll just have simple celebration at home or not celebrate it at all. But this time it fell on an Easter Sunday, so I decided to do a little something different, like visiting a church I've never been before like Caleruega Church.

Caleruega Church is popular tourist spot for wedding, photo-ops and retreats. It is located at Nasugbu, Batangas. The church/chapel itself is not that big in person unlike what I saw on some reviews but the place is huge. Aside from the church, there is also a hanging bridge, koi ponds and garden where you can have picnics or roam around with your friends and your family.

To go to Caleruega, you need to ride a bus bound to Tagaytay/Nasugbu/Lian/Balayan Batangas, just tell the driver or the conductor to drop you off at Evercrest/Hillcrest or just say Caleruega Church, they're familiar with the place. Tricycle service is available at the Evercrest/Hillcrest entrance. You can also walk/hike 2 kilometers to reach Caleruega. Entrance fee is 200 per head.

Happy Easter!

What, a coincidence that my name-day falls on Easter Sunday, when we celebrate the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ. It felt like it was my rebirth too, so I decided to launch my new blog site today, yey!

Last month, I was in the hospital for a week, because of pneumonia. The doctor said that there's a fluid in my lungs and I was also anemic, causing me a hard time to breath plus I was diagnosed with SLE — Systemic Lupus Erythematosus last 2015 (I might make a separate blog post for this), which make things a little bit complicated. It's my first time to be confined in the hospital, so it was alarming for me and my family. Thank God, I didn't need an operation, to discharge the fluid.

After that life-threatening situation, I decided to change my lifestyle. From junk-food junkie to fruits and veggies. And that's the rebirth of a new healthier version of me plus the blog. Sometimes a little change is a good thing. Better to be healthy than sorry, right?! Okay, I think that's enough reflection for today. Let's go celebrate life.  Cheers to a new chapter of life and endless adventures. Until next time!

Happy Easter Egg Hunting! 😄


Love Jen, 💋
