The IHOP Philippines Experience

8/22/2013 09:16:00 AM Chai Chen 148 Comments

It's been quite a while since the the first IHOP store in the Philippines have opened. I didn't give it that much attention but I've been reading about them on the web. A lot of food bloggers have written about them; I see advertorials; I see them on the news and read them on local newspapers ... then I thought hmmm, this is probably something ei? But it's just another pancake store right? Or so I thought! So me and my colleague Erelyn visited the place one time recently and the experience was surprising!


It was during one of our busy week days after work when we paid a visit. A stressful day deserves comforting food, we said. It was still in the early hours in the morning when we thought there's not much folks waiting to be seated; and we would be able to finally taste what a lot of folks have been craving for. However, it wasn't that easy ... not as easy as we thought ...

Andrea® Eye Q's Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads

8/18/2013 09:38:00 AM Chai Chen 18 Comments

I was out on a work trip and then I ran out of makeup remover. I usually have or wear my Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Liner which is really hard to remove, even with my Etude House Lip & Eye Makeup Remover Review nor the Mascara remover. Etude House Eyeliners are pretty strong and when it says waterproof, it really is waterproof!

And so, I had a dilemma ... I couldn't find an Etude House store nearby. Do I just buy a different brand I dunno of or I'd just wait 'til I get back home; and I'd just wash my face with my regular face wash that's also a BB cream remover (and would work on makeup)? Well, there's a Beauty Bar store and I though, hmmm, maybe I can find an equally good product ... hopefully something that will not damage my skin. I have sensitive skin so I only use very limited makeup and skincare brands. Thankfully, I found this Andrea® Eye Q's Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I was skeptical at first though ...

Me and My not-so-perfect removal of makeup hahah!
(I still have a few spots left)
Great product!
Andrea® Eye Q's Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads

There were other types but I chose this "moisturizing" one since it's the least greasy. I think that's really the best factor that sold this product to me hehe. After liquid type removers, I thought this one would work. Well - I ain't a beauty expert nor guru so I dunno all types haha. I just try 'em and review 'em ... sometimes I read other good stuffs and learn from those but mostly, I don't pay much attention. LOL. Anyway ... for this product, I have put it to the test ...

Real Life Doll or Anime Girl Anastasiya Shpagina

8/11/2013 09:56:00 AM Chai Chen 21 Comments

I first read about Anastasiya Shpagina last year when the Yahoo Article was published last year. It's almost too-good to be true. The article came along the rise of articles about quite-suspicious "real life" dolls like Valeria Lukyanova. It drew my interest as well and actually, this girl got more of my attention since she wasn't just focusing on being a doll or a model but she does cosplaying; and cosplay does attract me a lot. I've been missing this hobby already. I've been out of it for a almost 2 years ...

Anastasiya Shpagina and Valeria Lukyanova

There were lots of controversies with her Anastasiya and Valeria. Google searches rose quickly for the names of these two and in related articles; would show a lot of posts trying to prove their non-existence or bashing them that they are "photoshopped" beauties or have undergone plastic surgery. To be honest, there are really lots of doubts but since then; these two have been trying to prove their worth too - showcasing videos and photos denying all rumors. It's really interesting how their stories progress. I lost track. But somehow, I must say Anastasiya has shown some talent that really glued me in - her makeup skills. While most videos nowadays can be highly digitally altered or edited as well, her documented transformations are wonderful.

Affordable Shopping Haven Dresslink.com and my Blazer Fixations

7/19/2013 09:06:00 AM Chai Chen 20 Comments

Dresslink.com belongs to Hong Kong Sunweb Technology Co.,LTD, a worldwide online fashion clothing seller. Purchases at Dresslink is claimed to be safe and a well-managed trade. The shop supplies the most fashionable clothing & Korean style ladies' apparel internationally. I've recently been part of the team for the fashion blogger event and I must say; it seems pretty exciting! The styles and products they offer seem very unique and trendy. They do understand what the fashion market wants and that is unique and special ladies' clothes, so their team promises to be always adding beautiful new styles to their collections.

One thing they really take pride on is offering exceptional low price but good quality at the same time. This is because they are declared to have their own factory in ZHANGZHOU, FUJIAN. Also, in order to provide more styles (more than 10,000 styles to date per site count), they ally with many clothing manufacturers specializing in producing export clothing in China, which enables them to provide lasting styles in massive amount and in remarkably low prices.

Now they offer best efforts to be the best supplier to retailers and boutiques online all over the world as well. They offer a large variety of clothing styles. The site does have an amazing assortment of products in many brands and styles, and 90% similarity with clothing on famous fashion magazines. That is something I definitely love! And with that, I'm now on my way to have an even longer partnership with them as a fashion blogger. Check out my unique picks from the shop and incredibly low prices!

[Project Dress Code] Feature # 2 - Jessica Ricks (Hapatime)

7/13/2013 09:04:00 AM Chai Chen 15 Comments

Today, I give you yet another "episode" of this blog's section called Project Dress Code. I've been rather busy with work and life (for real) so these scheduled posts come to you instead. And while I wished to keep this section on a more regular basis; I guess I can do it monthly instead. You've seen my own version of it before: Dress Code Policy: Love It? Hate It? Whatnots? And last June 2013 was the first feature I made - [Project Dress Code] Feature # 1 - Camille Co and Win a Michael Kors Ladies Watch. This July, I give you yet another webisode featuring another blogger who inspired me in my wardrobe choices. While of course I can't match all her style and clothing; her way of dressing has truly given me other options too.


Jessica R. or Jess as she's fondly called, is one of the many fashion bloggers out there who stands out because of style and charm. I first saw her in Lookbook - Hapatime and since then (I think it was early last year, 2012) I started following her looks. I wasn't so keen in following many bloggers here until mid-last year though (when I decided to socialize more from this blog hehe). Then I started following her posts. They are short and sweet and concise but definitely attracts all the attention it needs.

Shop the SheInside Summer Sale & Save 15% Off!


And today, my 2nd feature is up ... Miss Jessica Ricks of Hapatime ...

Lookbook The Series - Like It or Not?

7/10/2013 08:46:00 AM Chai Chen 19 Comments

Not so long ago, some time April 2013, popular fashion hub Lookbook.nu launched a very special project dubbed as Lookbook The Series. LOOKBOOK: The Series is claimed to be a story of passion, intrigue and betrayal set in the world of online fashion blogging. This original series was said to be inspired by the LOOKBOOK.nu community and each episode is available for viewing at lookbook.nu/tv


The project launched mixed reactions as well from eager fans and lookbook users; as well as the press. Like me ... I was intrigued about what type of story it has. Is it promising enough ... will we learn from this series ... is it gonna be "just another blogger" post showing different branded items without real style ... will they have lackluster acting ... etc. Those were some of my initial reactions when I saw it's email announcement. At the same time, I was also a bit excited back then since, well, this is something new from the Lookbook team. I tried to follow the shorts and I'd love to share my thoughts about this show.

#ATTENTION DEAR READERS / FOLLOWERS

Be an e-tailPR blogger

And if you wish to FOLLOW EACH OTHER, please read this post first to know my views about it.

My Thoughts on Follow Each Other Requests


If you're one of those I used to follow but now I'm no longer following you, either your blog was changed to private; no longer existing; or simply because you fall in those categories I mentioned in this article. Sorry but I wish to keep a friendly group and remain true with my blogging principles. Thank you.
