21 by Adele

Ever since I saw her singing in a Youtube video of her song Rolling in the Deep, I've become an avid Adele fan. I couldn't wait to download all her songs from her award winning album 21 so I just bought a CD at Odyssey. I really don't care if it's quite pricey I just wanna listen to Adele over and over again. I don't regret buying it because I love all the songs, most of them touching on heartbreak and picking up the pieces. I kinda relate with some of them as most of you will once you listen to the album. My favorites are Rolling in the Deep, Turning Tables, Set Fire to the Rain, and Take It All. Her version of the song Lovesong is also worth listening to. Here are the tracks in the album:

1.) Rolling in the Deep
2.) Rumour Has It
3.) Turning Tables
4.) Don't You Remember
5.) Set Fire to the Rain
6.) He Won't Go
7.) Take It All
8.) I'll Be Waiting
9.) One and Only
10.) Lovesong
11.) Someone Like You
12.) Turning Tables (Live Acoustic)
13.) Don't You Remember (Live Acoustic)
14.) Someone Like You (Live Acoustic)

Beauty for a Cause Giveaway

Love, Life, Living is having a giveaway with fabulous Maybelline products as prizes. I'm definitely joining this one since I love Maybelline's BB cream and can't leave home without using it. I wanna win!

There's a rafflecopter to guide you in accomplishing the tasks so everything's so easy. There will also be one blogger who will win a cosmetic bag with assorted beauty products.

Since the giveaway has a lot to do with beauty, I wanna share a few of my beauty tips that I hope will help you guys look and feel beautiful:

1.) Eat a well-balanced diet and drink lots of water (at least 8 glasses a day).
2.) Have lots of sleep and rest.
3.) Don't use soap on your face, only facial foam since soap is too harsh.
4.) Use moisturizer after bath and before going to bed.
5.) Always use sunblock when going out. Avoid too much sun exposure.
6.) Have facials at least once in two months.
7.) Drink Vitamins A and E.
8.) Have a happy disposition and think positively. Always smile and thank God for all His blessings.

Along with being beautiful comes each woman's responsibility to help others. Helping for me doesn't only mean giving financial assistance to less fortunate people or those in need. To me it also means being able to share one's self to others by sharing their time and being compassionate and by also being supportive and letting people know that you'll always be there for them.

To join this giveaway please visit Love, Life, Living for more details.

Merienda at Icebergs

A few days ago, my bff Jenny and I had our occasional "catching up" and "pigging out" session. At first we drove around the SM Mall of Asia grounds to see where we can eat but eventually settled for a a place away from everyone else. Icebergs at Harbour Square in the CCP Complex. The place was so quiet. Aside from us, there was this one family having merienda. This wasn't the first time I ate food from Icebergs so I wasn't surprised at how yummy everything was. I had burger and nachos delivered a few months ago via my City Delivery GCs and I kinda promised myself that it's not gonna be the last. We ordered their Mighty AJ's Beef Burger Meal which was rather big so we shared it. I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of the burger and started devouring right away. We also ordered their Icebergs Tower which was a combination of six scoops of different ice cream flavors with almonds, brownies, and banana. It was so delicious!

So the next time you go out with your family or friends for merienda, I suggest you try dining at Icebergs. If you're tired of the usual fast food chains, this is really a very good alternative. The price is also reasonable and there's a variety of choices including Kiddie Spaghetti with Southern Fried Chicken, Ribeye Tapsilog, Korean Beef BBQ, Halo-halo, Sundae, Con Hielo, and a lot more.

My Tous Les Jours Cake

Last December I joined a Facebook promo by Tous Les Jours, a new bakeshop here in the Philippines with branches in SM Southmall and SM City North Edsa. It was launched in Korea in 1996 and now has over 1,700 stores. Luckily, I was one of the 8 winners and won myself a chocolate cake. I claimed it only this afternoon and wanted to kick myself for waiting too long to get it. The cake was really delicious! It wasn't as sweet as the other cakes I'm used to eating and it looked pretty. I want to try their other cakes and pastries and would probably visit their store again as soon as I have free time. I posted some pictures to share with you guys. Hope you also visit Tour Les Jours.

Just My Luck

I guess things are really looking up for me this year. As early as last week I've already won four online contests and hoping to win more in the coming days since I've been joining left and right since the year started. My relationship with my family and friends, as well as my love life, have all been smooth sailing so far. As for my finances, I must say I can't really complain. I can buy the things I need and then some. Honestly, life couldn't get better than this and I'm so thankful to God. According to my Chinese Zodiac Horoscope (year of the Ox), this year will be okay for me as long as I continue working hard. It also says that it's gonna be a year of changes for the Ox and it could be quite unsettling if I don't learn how to handle these changes. I've always been up for challenges and having a bit of a change in my daily routine or in my life for that matter, would do me some good. I'm quite excited by the thought.

How about you guys? Do you think this will be a favorable year or an unlucky one? You can read about your 2012 forecast here if you're interested. No matter what the stars may tell us, let's all remember that we make our own fortune. With hard work, dedication, support of our loved ones, a little bit of luck, and of course God's help there's nothing we can't accomplish.

Heavenly Flavors at Buffet 101 International Cuisine

My sister and her family had a short vacation two weeks ago from China. For our last dinner before they went to San Francisco, CA where they will spend their Christmas, we went to Buffet 101 International Cuisine. I saw the restaurant from the hotel room where they're staying and immediately googled it. I was rather taken aback with the price because it was more expensive than Vikings but I was still curious since I read several reviews about it and all were positive.

We went there around 5:30 pm on a Friday and didn't have any difficulty reserving our seats but waited for another 30 minutes to get in. As we were escorted to our seats I noticed how beautiful the interiors were. It was as if I was dining in a five-star hotel. The place was really spacious and the ambiance, really classy. But I was rather speechless with the food. It was incredible! I can't even remember how much I ate that night. I would have to say I've never been more full in my life. There's a wide choice of Filipino, American, Italian, Japanese, and French cuisine. I ate chicken, Italian pizza, California maki, mashed potato, fresh vegetable salad, salmon sashimi, quesadilla, and spicy frankfurters. For dessert I had cream puff, tiramisu, and parfait. For drinks I had mango juice. I wanted to eat more but my tummy couldn't take any more. As we headed home, I promised myself that I would come back for more of their heavenly dishes.
