Weekend Food Tripping at: Oliver's Super Sandwich + Hauls

How's everyone? I had a wonderful time resting and of course playing with my new goodies :) It's weekend food tripping! It's nothing overwhelming and formal! After a whole month of stuffing our face with food, we've decided to eat healthy!!! :)

Oliver's Super Sandwich! As the Restaurant name goes, there's definitely a whole lot of sandwiches!

Did you know that?
My sister's first job after graduation with Hotel and Restaurant Management Degree was a Management Trainee at Oliver's Super Sandwich located at Robinson's Galleria (this Oliver's branch does not exist anymore in this mall). Though the restaurant just serve sandwiches at that time, it isn't easy to memorize all the ingredients of different sandwiches they offer! Of course you cannot take a peak on ingredients list while customers are waiting for their orders! I've got poor memory, I won't be able to nail this job! *embarrassed*

What I like about this restaurant is that you can see them prepare the sandwich right in front of you, and you can ask them to custom-made your sandwich! Everything's clean and straight to the point!

My hubby ordered his favorite sandwich called Lean Smoked Turkey. We're disappointed though that they don't serve Cranberry Sauce anymore. Can't blame them though, not everyone down here would appreciate Cranberry sauce in their sandwiches! We felt the same the first time we heard about it 2 years ago. But we got hooked of this sandwich because of the sauce. We also ordered extra Egg Mayo for the sandwich! Yup hubby is egg lover! :D Do I look like an EGG??? Could be! that's why he loves me! hahahaha

Lean Smoked Turkey
Php198.00 (approx $4.12)

Additional Egg Mayo
Php28.00 (approx less than $1.00)



I love pasta, so given the chance to order something different, (as hubby and I always share our meal). I ordered Classic Carbonara. I like it! It's not something to be addicted to, but it does not taste bad at all! I wish they could have toasted my bread! Or if they did, they should have toasted it to crispy! Well, I should have requested for it, I didn't -- my fault! lol

Classic Carbonara Php188.00 (approx $3.91)

Sauce with mushroom and ham




I won't stop this post and talk only about food! I want my reader's tummy to go back to normal so let me talk about something unedible! hahaha

I got my order from Bobodave! I ordered my first L'egere BB Cream!! I've read so many raves about this BB Cream. The reason why I didn't do a round-up review on all the BB Creams as requested by a reader, is because I told myself L'egere would be the last BB cream I will try before I choose the HG! My top BB cream at the moment is my Skin79 VIP Gold Collection BB Cream, we'll see how this works!

L'egere BB Cream
$29.38 (approx Php1,400)

A bit smashed because
I requested for non-registered post

Again, most non-registered post gets directly to my home!





Here's my White Multi BB cream from L'egere!

So excited to use this!
So many beauty bloggers rave about this

also Kevin,
the famous make-up artist from Taiwan
Loves this!



Did you know that? Bobo, the owner of Bobodave, is so easy to deal with. You can email her about the approximate shipping rate before you go on with the online ordering! The more you purchase, the better the deal she will give! I've ordered twice from them already and they always ship pretty fast! You can also request for a price of products from Taiwan, Korea or Japan that's not on the site and she'll let you know if they will carry it or not! :) That's great customer service!


I also got my other order from AdamBeauty. The Mandom Cleansing Express Agecare! This is my first time to order at Adambeauty and so far, they ship pretty fast too! Total amount including shipping will automatically be shown near checkout.

Mandom Cleansing Express in Agecare
Price: $14.00 (approx Php672.00)

Happy weekend and stay happy!

  3. Hi

    In regards to the lipstickpallet
    Most lipsticks are creamy and not made to set so it shuldn't dry. The container is sealed quite tight.

    I visited sasa.com for price comparison and discovered that they are [[[ON SALE]]]! Haay, i should stop checking out online stores.

  26. Hi nikki,

    I'm just writing to tell you that Sasa has that Mandom. I know coz I got mine there. And if I remember it correctly, it's just around 400 pesos or even less. You could get it there next time =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Vanessa, thank you!!! But with Sasa, I have to order $75.00 for free shipping though, and at that time, I only want ONE mandom :) thanks for letting me know! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Khymm, using L'egere BB cream today, I can't wait to see the result :) Ahhh no Oliver's at Cebu?? OH NO! They should! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope you like this bb cream. It's my favorite right now and I refuse to try any other. LOL. Btw, I checked out that website which you got it from but the shipping cost is confusing. I guess I'll just email her about it later. hehe

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ebeautyblog, I know most of you gals living in the US order from the Japanese Product Lover and I can say, it's a good deal, but international shipping from them is quite heavy for me :) So the contact that I've written can give really good shipping rate and you can talk to her for discounts :) Email her and try asking :D She's a great seller! :D

    About L'egere, lol, you are too cute on refusing to try other BB creams LOL I still love my Skin79 VIP gold because it has moisture, I know a lot of oily skin won't like it, but I do, I am currently using L'egere and see how it goes :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. since im more of a sandwich/ bread lover (than rice), I love Olivers (and yeah, Subway too!) :D try their Almond Cajun Chicken or Hungarian sandwich!
