Etude House Silk Scarf Protein Ampoule Treatment Review

So I have always been a hair products girl, even inside a makeup and skincare land --- Etude House, I actually look forward to their "hair care products" area and look for unique products.

One product line that caught my attention is the SILK SCARF line.  With this line comes a slim box that says "Damage Protein Ampoule Treatment".

The product caught me at "Damage", so I grabbed it right away thinking this comes in a glass bottle or something like "facial ampoules".  

It was a nice surprise to see an "Injection" instead.  Thumbs up for packaging.  

Etude House Silk Scarf Protein Ampoule Treatment

This treatment contains 9 kinds of protein other than keratin protein and 17 kinds of amino acids that fill up dry and damaged hair with both moisture and nutrition and coats hair for firm and volumized hair.

Weekend Food Trip at: Bugis Chomp Chomp

So I used to think Banawe St. is only for guys who loves their cars!
Then I frequent Banawe because it is in the middle of my home my and parents so we love to dine there on weekends.

Another thing, my son's school is also near the area so sometimes, we have lunch in this area before going home.  So yes, I already tried 98% of the restaurants there!  *laughs*

One restaurant that I see often is Bugis Chomp Chomp because for the fact that it is next to my favorite Milk Tea place - Dakasi.  The Mister and I tried their Fish balls, Squid Balls, etc... on sticks "take out" but never really tried dining in until recently.

There's nothing special with the interiors of the restaurant, it looks like most restaurants you find in Singapore, those near hawkers!  But when I took a glance at their menu, I knew that they have more than streetfood to offer!

I went for rice meals because I was extremely hungry.

Spring Rolls
Around Php120-Php150.00
This is one of the best tasting spring rolls I've tried.  It is very crunchy, evenly "browned" and the vinegar that comes with it makes it even more awesome!!!

Chicken Teriyaki
It may look like regular Chicken Teriyaki you see in most Japanese restaurants but I actually like the sauce!  It's not too sweet (hindi sugar lang ng sugar) and it has a nice distinct taste.  I wish they come with more sauce as I want them drizzled all over my rice.

Whether you travel or a lot or not?  I actually like using this on a regular basis because seeing wires inside a bag can stress a busy gal who needs to move fast whenever-wherever.  

Thankfully, I was gifted this last Christmas and the Mr. and I were excited about this but because I am a "loving wife" (hahaha), I gave it to him as I know he lug more cable wires than I do!

AskMeMom: Kyle's First Birthday Celebration in School

A lot of YOU asked me on both emails, DMs and even texts --- How Do You Manage Your Time?

Well, I don't know about you but it takes years of practice!  I started time management as early as gradeschool years!  With all the assignments I get (4 exams plus Chinese memorization for both Language and History), I learned to really count every minute and follow my own timetable!

All of you AMW friends knew how busy my life is especially if you follow me on Social Media, but for the latter part of March and the whole month of April, my schedule is even worst!  With my dad's stairs accident and recent stroke, I have to add in daily visits to the hospital (today: HOME).  What makes my life even more challenging is I have to continue to be there for my son who needs and seeks my attention much more than before!

And since April 16 is his 5th birthday and a first for him to celebrate it in school (his previous school was on summer vacation on his Birthday.), I knew I had to at least give him a decent celebration because even with troubles coming my way, life does not stop there!

I have to give a shoutout to my loving hubby for even taking workday-off to help me out on this!  THANKS MR. AMW!

The food part was easy, we ordered fastfood on that day and even purchased his requested "Red Ribbon" cake.  Thankfully, they have a Jollibee cake there which matches the food theme.

Now let's talk about the loot bag!  I obviously do not have time to go to "Divisoria" like other moms so I obviously went for the easier route -- ONLINE SHOPPING.

One of the Online Shopping App I always go to is Shopee - I learned about the effectiveness of Shopee through my sister-in-law because she also has a shop there!

Palladio Powder Finish Oil-Free Foundation Review

Weekend is so near I just want to curl up in bed and sleep the whole day.
I obviously can't!  So I may as well talk about something I like most!  Make up!  
And recently, after the relaunch of Palladio in the Philippines, I really took time to test some of their star products and one of them is the Palladio Powder Finish Foundation.

Yes, it says Powder Finish so you kind of know what to expect.  But the big question is, how good/bad will it be on my normal/dry skin?
