IG Shop Love: InCasesLikeThis

More than 50% of the time, I'm on my phone, I check emails, post on Social Media, chat with family and friends for updates and play games during downtime. 

I am very simple with my phone cases.  It's usually transparent in color and I was just looking for a new one as it was starting to look "yellow" and old. 

Then I saw an online shop on Instagram called "InCasesLikeThis" (www.instagram.com/incaseslikethiss) and found some of the cases that would not only protect my phone but give me good reminder whenever I pick it up.

"Be Brave", "Unique" and a Starry Night-looking phone case that reminds me of my love for the stars and the sky.

Shipment was fast and it was packed pretty neatly.  One reason why I like this shop is that the items you see are ON HAND.  The seller answers query pretty quickly and would let you know advance if she can't answer at once.  I love their professionalism in handling customer queries.

Let's Go Dark For Halloween Shall We?

Heya AMW friends!
So Halloween is near and I know a lot of you are bringing out those crazy dark lip colors!  But for someone who is "more than an adult" and not a kid anymore *boo hoo* I want to be "in season" yet wear something apt for my age!

Found one!  In the name of Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick!

The texture is amazing, though finishes off matte, I love how it never enhances my lip lines and it never felt tight all throughout the day!

Weekend Food Trip at: Ludo Boardgame Bar and Cafe

I've been to Ludo Boardgame Bar and Cafe thrice in total and I can't understand why I haven't taken a full shot of the restaurant itself!  I guess we were so excited to play games and enjoyed so much we forgot to take photos!  But to those who follow me on #AMWIgstories probably seen how we played games! 

Located at the heart of Tomas Morato, QC, this is a Boardgame place where they house 100 of games, at the same time, you can also purchase boardgames there! 

If you don't know how to play a certain game?  Fret not, there is a game master there to help you out, he is so friendly and I love the ambiance!  You see friends, families dining there not looking at their phones, instead, they are bonding with real-life games!'

Let's talk about the food, unlike other Bar and Cafes, they legitly offer good food!  I love their nachos!  One of the best so far I've tried in the Metro.

We also had our dinner there so we tried out some of their main dishes.

Parmesan Fries with Truffle
This isn't a winner for us because they put a bit too much Parmesan that I can't seem to taste the Truffle flavor!  :)

Classic Spaghetti Bolognese
Not bad, very meaty and sauce-y spaghetti dish that we Filipinos love (meaning, it has a hint of sweetness to it!)

Feast Flavors from Around the World at Shang's GourmetFest

Who loves Shangri-La Plaza?
I love it so much I frequent there for meetings, for bonding with my parents and family no matter how traffic it could get in the area. 

I just love the vibe, the helpfulness of the staffs and the wide variety of restaurants to choose from because we are self-proclaim "Foodies" at heart!

Have you ever wished how you can taste different food/dishes from different restaurants in ONE go?

It is POSSIBLE when Shangri-La Plaza rolled out a delicious spread for mall guests for a culinary event called GourmetFest.  Happened last October 18 until October 21 - you still have time to experience new flavors and revisit old favorites! 

Aside from that, mall guests can enjoy live demos and workshops led by some of the best chefs in the country!

And I was able to sample the roster of restaurants part of the GourmetFest --- 22 of them in total I only get to sample 3 or 4 of them and I was stuffed! (yet happy!)

AMW Family's Amari Moments

The last time we took a professional Family Portrait was December 25, 2013 (Kyle was less than a year old back then!)  

I clearly remembered that day because it was a random thought to have a professional photo taken for his first birthday invites.  For the next few years, we took amateur photos with the help of family members and friends!  But to be honest, I wished we have at least one family portrait a year!  Because this kid is growing so fast I can't keep track!  

When photographer friend Myra Ho messaged me inviting my family to have our portraits taken by her at Amari Moments Studio in Tomas Morato, who can say no to that?  I've met Myra on several occasion during The Body Shop events and she always takes great photos!  

And this is just ONE out of the many great shots she produced!

Well 2, actually, MORE!

The studio can be easily found at Waze (Type Winland Tower).  The tower itself do not have parking slots but you can easily park in front of the building or beside the building.
