Weekend Food Trip at Coco Ichibanya



So I have tried Coco Ichibanya the first time in Shanghai more than 10 years ago!  I remembered my brother (who's working there) taking Keith and I, my mom, dad and my brother to this "Curry Restaurant" because it is extremely yummy.

Then, I opened the menu and said: "What?  It's all curry lang?"
Duh? Obviously, it's a CURRY RESTAURANT.

Obviously, it isn't just a curry restaurant, it is one of the yummiest Curry I've tried!  I loved the restaurant so much I made it a point to visit and dine there whenever I go to Shanghai!

Then, the most impossible thing happened, just when I always message my brother how I wish this restaurant would be available in the Philippines, it finally happened!  And I can't believe why it took me THIS long to finally visit Coco Ichibanya!

(Note from author:  All food photos won't look exactly the same as how they would regularly serve because we asked them to separate the curry sauce!)

Pork Cutlet Omelette Curry
Php380.00
Soft and fluffy omelette curry with steaming Japanese rice inside is a wonderful surprise!  It goes so well with the crunchy Pork Cutlet!  You also get to choose the spicy level of your curry sauce!


Pork Cutlet Curry
Php340.00
Because I wanted to share this dish with my son, I went for plain steaming rice with the same yummy pork cutlet that's oh-so-tender and soft on the inside.

Be Active! With the PHILAM Vitality Active Mobile App!





Hey AMW Friends!  Do you have a workout plan?
Judging by the way my schedule looks, you probably knew that I have 0 workout fitted in my schedule!  But as lazy as I look, I actually used to have an EXTREMELY active lifestyle --- 4x a week Gym and everyday aerobics/dance sessions!


I missed being active again, today, as much my workout entails running/chasing after my 4-year old son Kyle Nash, I try to squeeze in some "me" time by working out, a bit of a brisk walking after dinner or early morning walks.


Now, I'm sure a lot of you have this same "goal" as I do to keep myself stay active to free myself from possible health risks especially since I'm not getting any younger!  Thanks to my blogger friend Rowena for introducing me to an app led by Philam Life.  The app is called Philam Vitality Program.


This program seeks to help its customers to make better decisions that contribute to their overall wellness and rewarding them along the way!  You know how we love rewards!  So this is definitely an app worth checking out!

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara Review




So when was the last time I reviewed a mascara again?  More than a month!  I can't seem to bother to use mascara on most days because really, what's there to "grab" right?

Thankfully, I have readers like "Cindie" (okay, it is her real name! hahaha) who has similar lash situation as I do and asked me about my favorite mascara AFTER Shiseido Full Lash Volume Mascara.  It was a perfect timing for her to ask me this question because after testing and trying out so many, ONE brand and mascara product caught my attention!  And I'm sure you'll be surprised how this brand finally got my "AMW Seal of Approval" since most of their past mascaras received "so so" approval from me!

Revlon foundations - never an issue for me, they can make good bases for a drugstore brand.  But mascara?  Revlon, you finally made it!

And this time, they made sure not to make any mistakes at all!  They want to cover ALL lash issues thus coming up with 5 different variants to choose from under this mascara line!  And goodness!  I have to give them "Thumbs and Toes up" for great packaging too! (color coded!)


L-R Revlon Super Length Mascara, Dramatic Definition Mascara,
Volume + Length Magnified Mascara and Ultra Volume Mascara

Makeup World Blush|Up Single Blush Powder in Tangerine Review



When you just want to look "fresh" and doesn't want to have cheeks that can be seen from 100meters.

This maybe the blush you are looking for.  Makeup World Blush|Up Single Blush Powder in Tangerine.

It is indeed one of the easiest, day-time blush color to use!  I can imagine this looking great on users with very fair to darker complexion.  It just works because it gives a subtle color with mostly "highlight" that we are aiming for.
