2011 Hits & Misses + a glimpse inside my room ^_^

The end of 2011 is nearing...just a couple more days till the start of 2012. I can't believe that everything flew so fast and that it had been another great year I spent with you guys...I'm really looking forward to new friends that I will meet in the future through my blog ^_^

To end 2011, I have decided to do a HITS and MISSES list instead of my TOP 10 PRODUCTS like last year because majority of my HG products are still the same hehe...I am still in love with the same brushes (Ellana buffer brush, Lumiere duo fiber brush, MAC 217, Loew COrnell 3/8 mop brush) and the same products (Ellana Sheer Velvet powder, Ellana concealer in Cheer, LipIce Sheer Color) so I d on't think it will be exciting to read haha ^_^

I have tried quite a few products and it is quite hard to narrow it down into a dozen products that I loved and can also be included in my HG list...It is also understandable that I did not fell in love with all of the items I purchased like I hoped. So here's a summary of what I loved and what I didn't liked. These products were all purchased by me within the year.

To start, these are the top rookies...I have consistently used these products so much since I got them ^_^

From the back, L-R:

1. Yummy mini cookbooks
I am just starting in my quest to be the best cook...well, that is my dream anyway haha ^_^

Seriously, I just started learning how to cook mid 2011. I love eating but I really can't cook and it makes me feel bad. I always get words from my parents like, "Magaasawa ka na, ano ipapakain mo sa kanila?"...And since I am really gonna get married soon and I don't want my family to eat instant noodles and fried foods forever, I decided to study on my own. And these books helped me a lot. These are very beginner friendly because the instructions are so easy to follow and the ingredients can easily found in local groceries because they are locally published. Affordable too, only Php125 ^_^

2. Samsung Netbook
My new baby...without her, I won't be able to blog, check my mails, watch shows and do my work. It is very handy and the battery life is really good so whenever I bring this to clients, I won't need to bring my charger anymore. Since it is very light and small, I can just fit it inside my bag without people thinking that I have a laptop with me (Iwas snatcher di ba? hehe)..The best buy I did this year..definitely ^_^

3. Fringe holder
I am so in love with this fringe holder. I have 4 pieces in 2 colors (black and blue). I use the blue one when I'm home and the black one if I go out. Whenever I don't want my bangs to get on my face, like when I'm doing something or eating, I just pin my fringe up with this sticky thing. I love the fact that it doesn't tug on my hair like other hair clips and it also doesn't create waves so if I want to let down my bangs I can easily do so.

The only problem I have with this is that it is so hard to find locally and you need to order it. But aside from that, I always get compliments on how unique they are and how effective they work ^_^

4. Tony Moly backstage liner duo in 01
I purchased this because of Brigitte's review. I love gel liners but all of the brands I tried like MAC and Stila dried out after a couple of months. Brigitte said that this won't dry out and it is very pigmented and doesn't smudge so I decided to grab it. I got myself the duo one because all of the available single black are shimmery and not too dark, and I like matte black liners. Plus, I also like the fact that it is combined with a shimmery white liner! I will give an in-depth review of this product soon. But for now, all I can say is that I really, really love this! ^_^

5. Etude House AC Clinic Red Spot Balm
I have been using this product for the last 6 months or so on areas that I have a lot of acne marks. I love this product because aside from the fact that it lightens dark spots, it also has ingredients that help in healing existing pimples. I'm just sad that I don't have before and after pictures to show you guys, but trust me, they work great on marks! I am so gonna repurchase this hehe ^_^

6. Etude House Moistful moisturizer gel
Okay, so this not mine personally but my sister's hehe...I just use it for free ^_^

I use this every day because it supplies the moisture my skin needed. I have COmbination oily skin and I'm so happy that this product works for me even though it is really meant for dry skin like my sister. And it works very well on her too...And the fun part? It doesn't break me out ^_^

7. Nature Republic Eyes and Lips Makeup remover in Pink
I am not sure if I have done an in-depth review on this product, if not, I will post one because this is by far the best eye makeup remover I tried ever. It removes even waterproof mascaras with ease. It is also gentle enough that it doesn't irritate my eyes. And affordable too, I believe it is around Php500 only and available locally.

8. MBM Stemcell Eyecream
I have been using this for a month now and I honestly haven't seen any improvement on my dark circles because I always stay up very very late for the past 2 weeks because of the holidays. BUT I am loving it for it because it give my eyes enough moisture ( I did not get any millia underneath my eyes), it absorbs very quickly, and it is very affordable. I will still do a diary on this like promised, I just wanted to share that I am loving it so far ^_^

9. Tony Moly Nail polish remover
Out of all the nail polish removers I tried, this one removes polishes the fastest. It is also very economical because I can remove my nail polishes using only one cotton ball soaked with the product. It also doesn't contain acetone so it is not drying. It is way better than the Face Shop one IMO ^_^

10. Sofy body Fit sanitary napkin.
This is my HG sanitary pads. I have never experienced any accidental leaks night or day, regardless of activities with this pad. There are times that I need to seat for around 5hours without bathroom breaks and this pad can still contain my flow even if it is so heavy. I am so so in love with this. No irritations too unlike when I use Whisper (I get rashes). I really hope they won't discontinue this brand..

11. Suesh eyeliner brush
This is the first time I've ever used a pointy eyeliner brush. I've always been fond of flat angled liner brushes for applying gel liners because they are so easy to use but this Suesh liner brush is way better! I can create as thin or as thick of an eyeliner I want. It is also easy to line my upper lashline with this because it has the right stiffness to it and I have control in the application. I want to get another one for my white gel liner hehe. It is affordable too, only Php200 ^_^

12. Etude House Missing You Lipbalm in Penguin (not in the picture)
My night lip balm. I use this in exchange of my petroleum jelly at night. I love applying this generously on my lips before I go to sleep and I will always wake up with moisturized lips. No irritations and it gives me enough moisture every time ^_^

Here's my review on the product. Just click here.

13. Nature Republic Nail polishes (not in the picture)
I love how long lasting they are and much cheaper than The Face Shop too! Easy to apply and the shine stays on for at at least 2 weeks. I don't even need a top coat to make it last longer since it does good on its own. I will definitely try out more colors ^_^

14. Imarflex Electric Mixer
This is a Christmas gift from my bf. He knows I love baking and I don't have a mixer yet (I whisk stuff manually by hand haha) so he gave me this to make things easier for me. I am loving it to bits and I have created a couple of things using this already. It is not too heavy and it is very easy to clean so it's all good, plus the fact that it is a gift from my beloved, which made it extra special ^_^

15. Oster Electric Oven
Well, I do love sweets and I was always intrigued if I can bake...well, well, I even surprised myself that after the second try, I already can follow the recipes I found online haha can you say I'm so lucky? Almost all of my baked goodies tasted so good! So this oven is now one of my favorite items in the house and I have used it quite a lot. It cooks evenly and it is very easy to clean. I also love how light it is to carry so I can transfer it from one place to another with ease. The only negative on this product? Well, it's 110V because I got it from an American surplus store haha ^_^

**And now, the products that I didn't like and regretted buying...

1. Tony Moly Intense Repair Live Snail Cream and Eyecream
Check out my complete review on this product why it got included in this list. Overall, it is too expensive and it was not suitable on my skin. I really wouldn't mind spending thousands on a good product but I really felt bad that my money just got wasted because it only made me breakout :(


2. Carmex lipbalm in a tube
I really hated the scent and taste of the product. It keeps on reminding me of Sanity Balm whenever I use iton my lips.

My review on this product here.

3. The Body Shop Born Lippy in orange flavor
I don't know why I don't like this specific flavor but it irritates me. I also don't like the glitters and orangey color it gives on my lips. It so not flattering on me. Luckily, this is just a gift to my mom and she just gave it to me since she also didn't like the scent.

Although I like the raspberry flavored one so it is not the lip balm in general but just this specific flavor.

4. Nature Republic Collagen BB cream
This is a sample size I got when I purchased my makeup remover. I thought I would like it but after using it several times, I don't reach for it anymore. It has a very light coverage regardless of the amount you used. I can't build up the coverage even if I had already done at 3 layers. It is also not long lasting on me. The only thing I like about this is it has antiaging and SPF.

5. Natural Science Herbal Products MFG. Tawas
Okay, I don't usually use deodorant/antiperspirant because I got a phobia when I used Secret when I was still a teenager and it stained my UA. But since I do get sweaty very easily on my underarms and I usually wear sleeved shirts, I decided to try a natural one so I bought this. I thought it can help with the sweat but it totally did nothing except stain my shirts. So useless :(

6. My Phone Dual Sim
If you're my friend in Facebook, you definitely saw my post...I can't seem to operate it. My contacts don't appear, it's so hard to text and I can't seem to read all my messages. It just frustrates the heck out of me. I know it is cheap but I just hoped I got a regular Nokia phone or something. I was unable to text a greeting to my friends and family last Christmas since I can't find their numbers huhu :(

So that ends my HIT & MISSES of 2011! I hope you enjoyed reading them ^_^

And now, for a glimpse of my room...I sleep under the bunk bed and my sister sleeps on top. We share a room so I can't really show you the whole room because I haven't asked permission from her yet hehe ^_^

That's my college graduation picture, my best friend Rachelle and me (the poster was a gift from her), a board where I pin pictures of my boyfriend, and a poster of Jang Geun Suk (a freebie when Nature Republic opened) ^_^

A poster of JYJ, 2AM (I got this during their mini-concert here in Pinas) and Super Junior (This poster is a gift of my sister)

I have plastic containers that hold my novels under my bed. I am now very cautious about termites and water so I decided to transfer them from my bookshelf to these to keep them safe ^_^
And this is my little station. I have huge plastic containers at the back that contains all my photo albums, CDs, cassette tapes, magazines, college books and notes that I love to keep, and other stuff. And this small table is where I do my blogging. As usual, I have a container full of chocolates beside me and my printer underneath.

This is my where I keep my makeup. I have already finished sorting them out and I already gave away the things that I don't use.

and on top of that, I keep my skin care products. And yes, I do wear myobrace when I sleep for maintainance. I used to have braces and I got it removed when I was in college. I had it for 6 years hehe ^_^


So yeah, this will be my last post for the year 2011. I hope you did not get bored! Happy New Year everyone!!!!

CALLING FOR DONATIONS & VOLUNTEERS

Hello everyone! I just read this email from PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) today and I would like to help them spread the word by posting their call for help.

PAWS are in need of dog foods, stainless steel bowls, plastic matting (to line bottom of cages), cleaning materials (deck brushes, walis tingting, detergent powder) and veterinary supplies (gloves, Zoletil, etc) for the newly rescued 73 emaciated Pit Bulls.from a dog fighting establishment in the South. 40 of these dogs are currently taken by PAWS and the remaining are distributed to other organizations who rescues dogs and cats because PAWS can't accomodate all 73 dogs due to lack of space and materials and even the lack of people to take care of them.

For those who wanted to help or even volunteer, you can drop off your donations at the PARC office Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. PARC is located at Aurora Blvd, Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights, QC.

You can see pictures of the rescued dogs in this article here .

Let us help PAWS in rehabilitating these dogs who are maltreated by people who condones dog fighting. I am really praying that events like these would stop completely. My heart goes out to these poor angels who are innocent but are suffering because of people who are so full of themselves and doesn't care one way or another on how these dogs feel when wounded.

PLEASE REPOST this call for help on your blogs and facebook accounts...let us help spread out the words to other pet lovers who would love to reach out and help. Thank you so so much!

Note: If you can't go to PARC personally, I am willing to meet up with anyone to get your donations and I will bring them at PARC in your behalf. I will ask my brother to drive me there with all our donations since I don't have a car. Or if you want me to buy the items for you, you can send me the money through GCASH and tell me what item I will buy...JUST EMAIL ME at galebart_15@yahoo.com with a subject "HELP FOR PAWS".

I hope everyone can donate...even a piece of walis tingting or dog bowl will be of great help..Even a 100 pesos combined together can buy a sack of dogfood for these dogs...

Thank you so much! And please repost! God bless!

Experiment: MBM Stemcell Eye Cream

Hello lovelies! How's everyone's week so far? Me, I feel like I'm on a roll because I want to keep on posting reviews or makeup looks in this blog haha..Maybe it's the Christmas spirit? I don't know, but I'm really having a great burst of energy everyday ^_^

Anyhow, I wanted to start a new blog series since I have already finished my Derma Roller Skin Diary. I also noticed that my readers like to follow me along on my journey whenever I undergo procedures and product testing. So I'm gonna start a new one!

I have always had problems with my eyes because they easily get fine lines. I also have problems with dark circles around the eye area (if you watched my failed YT video, you'll notice that I look like a panda haha). So because of these concerns, I tend to gravitate towards eye creams on the market. I have tried a lot but nothing works..either they are too moisturizing that I end up having a lot of millia (like the Skin Hour) or they do nothing and even stings me (like the Garnier and Tony Moly). I have very sensitive skin as you all know, so it's not really a surprise for me that it's so hard to find my HG eye cream.

So when I saw this new eyecream when I visited the MBM kiosk last month, I needed to grab one to try. And having stemcell as one of its main ingredient and it's from Korea, I am crossing my fingers that this could be the answer to my problem.

So the product costs Php150 for an 8g eyecream. Not bad right? I don't like spending too mcuh for something that I'm not sure of hehe.

It comes in a cube plastic pot and it looks like this...

This is what my eyes look like before I used it. So this picture was taken last November 22.

Can you see the darkening and the lines under my eyes and the laugh lines? I actually don't mind having laughlines because it symbolizes me having a lot of laughing in my life but I don't like the lines underneath the eyes because concealers tend to settle onto them and they're not pretty to look at when that happens =/

So I hope you can follow me on this new adventure. I will try to give updates monthly so as to give the product some time to work. Hopefully we'll all be seeing some improvements ^_^


NOTE: I also am going to do a series for the stretchmark cream because the reviews on that product was good. They say that within 2 months there's already some improvements on their stretchmarks.. Well, I'm very much willing to try it and I'll be posting pictures for that too ^_^

Thanks for dropping by! ^_^

GADGET Review: HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 2010

Hello! I just want to share my review on the very much promoted printer of HP here in the country -- HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 2010.

I needed a good portable printer at home to use for work since I hate going out just to print the files I needed at the office. I spend a lot more money on fare and eating out too so I told myself that it would be more cheaper if I have my own.

So I searched and searched for a good one. I want something sturdy but portable since I have a small space (My sis and I share a room together) and I also want a printer that has very affordable ink. Our Canon printer when I was still in high school costs Php1000++ per cartridge and it was so expensive that when it broke, my mom did not get a new one coz it was cheaper to have our projects printed in computer shops. And I found the perfect little printer I'm looking for ^_^

Meet my HP DESKJET INK ADVANTAGE 2010...

It comes with a free Logitech computer speakers and 2 small printer inks (black and colored).


It has a sticker on top that says...

I LOVE THIS because:

- It has a very sleek design

- Portable and lightweight. I can even bring this along if I want to coz it's very light and it comes with a black cloth bag for travelling.

- Prints very nicely. I didn't really expect that it will print clear and fast.

- Has two ink slots...one for colored and one for black. No need to switch inks!

- Very affordable ink. Both the colored and black each costs Php390 only! I don't need to have my ink refilled since it's cheap hehe ^_^

- The printer is very affordable too. I got it for Php3100 only at Electroworld Trinoma. (The staff there are very nice. They installed the printer to my laptop for free..I don't have a CD drive so it would be a problem for me if I'm gonna do it hehe)

- There's an indicator near the power button that shows if your ink are low already.

- I also love how it is so easy to cancel the ongoing printing. I won't be worried of wasting ink and paper if I clicked the "print file" accidentally on my computer.


I DON'T LIKE THIS because...

- The case is made of shiny plastic so it's a fingerprint magnet

- The plastic casing also feels very brittle and thin so I'm afraid that this will easily break if I accidentally dropped this off.

- The free speakers are blah. The sounds coming from it is "sabog and tunog lata". I don't know how to explain it aside from those two words haha ^_^


I definitely recommend this for anyone who are in need of a good and affordable printer. I did not regret buying this ^_^

Good News! + JOB Opening for Nurses ^_^

Happy Monday to everyone! Today is a very joyful day for me. I'm so blessed because I realized that God has given me a chance to do all the things that I love doing..I don't need to choose just one since I can do them all! ^_^

I believe that it is really my calling to help people and animals alike because I can feel great satisfaction whenever I made an impact on their lives. I am loving my work now as a licensed financial advisor because I can help the people around me become financially independent for free! Assisting them reach their goal of becoming financially secure and hearing them say "Thank You for helping me" to me makes me so happy inside that I can't put the feelings in words...so I just smile haha ^_^

But still, I miss being a nurse too. I get to help people become healthier and more beautiful inside and out. So when I was forced to resign last July because of personal matters, I got sad. But I am now given another chance to still do it without compromising my current love.

Remember my post about My Beautiful Me's products? Well, my dermatologist contacted me and she wanted me to handle all online inquiries! I can't believe she trusted me enough to be able to handle that responsibility all on my own. She knows that I do blogging (because she has a lot of patients that are also readers of my blog hehe) and my sister have an online shop that I help her with, so she think it's better if I do it since I already know how.

Also, it's a plus factor that I had worked as a dermatologic nurse for a spell and I am already trained. She really wanted a nurse to do the job of answering any questions about the products. And because they are medical products, she wanted a medical practitioner to assist clients in choosing the right products for them so as not do more harm on their skin.

She also wanted me to be the "bridge" when someone wanted to consult their skin condition first before buying anything by sending out their pictures to me so I can send them to our in-house dermatologist. She is offering her services for free and she told me that she can adjust the dosage of the product depending on the client's condition if needed. This way, it would be easier for the client especially if they live very far from her clinics because I can just send the products to their house. Isn't that very convenient? ^_^


Anyhow, I am just so happy that I am given another chance to still be a derma nurse and at the same time a financial advisor. This is the best Christmas gift ever! haha ^_^

I created an email account just for inquiries so that I won't miss your questions. The add is: mbmskinbar@yahoo.com

I'll also be creating a website (in Facebook and Multiply) so you can go check out the products, their active ingredients, the price, etc. I'll be using the same email address for the Facebook page so it's easier to look. I hope I can finish uploading the pictures and details tonight so you can all view them ASAP.

edit: I already created a Facebook page!

I really love MBM products coz they saved my skin. Together with derma roller, the acne kit helped a lot in my skin's condition. I am very confident that these products can help you all who are having problems with acne and don't have a lot of money to undergo expensive treatments ^_^

Thank you for sharing this wonderful news with me ^_^

***

My Beautiful Me is in need of a Product Specialist for its kiosk at Sta. Lucia Mall.

Qualifications:
- Nursing graduate (fresh grads are welcome)
- Lives near Sta. Lucia Mall
- Willing to work mall hours
- Personable, responsible and friendly
- Willing to learn

Please send your resume at mbmskinbar@yahoo.com so I can give you the owner's contact info for an interview ^_^

Review: Holika Holika Clearing Petit BB Cream

Time for another product review! This time, I'm reviewing my current BB Cream, the Holika Holika Clearing Petit BB Cream.

I got this BB Cream online and it cost around Php250-280 only. I got intrigued by it because it is meant for acne prone skin. It comes in a 30ml blue-green colored tube and it also has SPF 30 PA++. I researched online for reviews and it got raves about not breaking anyone out so I decided to try it for myself since it's very hard for me to find a bb cream that would not break me out or at least not irritate me.

Here's a product desription from Amazon.com.. I can't read the Korean writings at the back of the tube so I can't translate them for you hehe ^_^

"Holika Holika Pore Clearing Petit BB Cream 30ML with Tea Tree Oil and Sebum Control Powder

Fresh Texture without oil Tea Tree Oil Extract helps to clean skin by alleviating skin troubles and red spots, make a refreshing baby face with Sebum Control Powder.

Terpine-4 of Tea Tree Oil alleviates inflammations that happen by bacteria and mold funguses.

Sebum control powder helps to maintain fresh and soft skin condition by reducing shine with excellent sebum capturing effect."


I have been using this for 2-3 months now and here's my take on this product.

Note: I have Combination, acne prone and sensitive skin for reference purposes.


I LOVE THIS PRODUCT because:

- This contains Tea Tree oil to fight off acne and I'm happy to say that this didn't broke me out even with continous use.

- Sun protection of SPF 30 PA++ is also enough for everyday use. It also didn't gave me any white cast on photos.

- The color match is great as you can see in the picture. It really gives me a natural look. Plus, it has a yellow undertone so it doesn't give me any grayish or pinkish cast like other bb creams.

- It spreads very easily on the skin. I prefer applying this using my fingers instead of a brush.

- Coverage is light to medium. This won't cake even if you accidentally applied too much at once.

- The size of the product is enough for a good trial. I wouldn't be saddened if this won't work for me because I won't be wasting a lot of product.

- Very affordable. This cost less than Php300 only.

- Again, the size is very travel friendly because it is compact and seals tightly.

- It doesn't have a strong Tea Tree Oil scent.

- I also love the packaging because it has a cute cat drawing in front hehe and I love blue ^_^


I DON'T LIKE THIS PRODUCT because:

- It is said to have a great oil control but I did not experienced it. I normally oil up after an hour or two after washing my face and whenever I use this, I still oil up after 2-3 hours. So it has little to moderate oil control properties.

- Staying power is so-so in my case. I usually look like I don't have foundation on at the end of the day.

- This darkens on me so bad! I have acidic skin and that's the reason why I use lighter foundation and since this is almost the same as my natural skin color, after 6 hours, I already look dark :(

- Not easily available locally since Holika Holika doesn't have any outlet here in the Philippines.

- It only comes in a small bottle so if you decided you like this and want to get a full size one, THIS is their full sized bottle hehe

- I don't think they have any other shade since the label doesn't have any number to indicate if this is shade 1 or 2.


OVER-ALL RATING: 4/5. I am giving this product a score of 5 for the shade, texture, coverage, packaging, price and acne control properties. But I'm giving this a score of 3 for the oil control and staying power.

WILL I REPURCHASE THIS? No. I prefer to have a long lasting foundation with great oil control over price.


So, have you guys tried this bb cream? What can you say about it? Please suggest other brands for me that is good for oily acne prone skin so I can try them out too ^_^

TAG; Get Your Freaked On!

Hello everyone! It's a rainy Sunday today and I'm not really a fan of rain because it's wet and I can't go out of the house haha...The only thing I like about a rainy day is that it's cool and refreshing and it's so nice to sleep at night ^_^

So anyway, I would just like to do this tag question...This has been circulating around Youtube for quite awhile already and I find it interesting because the questions are kinda different from other tag videos. I hope you will like this because this is one of my ways to introduce myself to all of you ^_^

#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
-- My family calls me Gale. All my relatives and close friends calls me Gale haha...I don't really like being called Crystal while I was growing up since it's so girly ^_^

#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
-- I'm not sure if it's a weird one but I always put my feet up whenever I'm sitting on a chair (well except when I'm at restaurants hehe). I don't know the reason, but when I watched Bubzbeauty answered this question, I gues it makes sense...She said "...because I'm little, my feet dangles when I'm sitting so it gets tiring..." ^_^

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
-- I only have one. I can't open my eyes under water because I "see" a huge shark with it's mouth open facing me. And it's weird because I also xperience this even when I'm swimming in a pool haha...And I haven't been attacked by a shark yet so I don't know where my phobia arised from. So I won't be able to snorkel or anything because of it =/

#4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
-- Hmm, I don't really have a secret song. I usually belt out any song I like. I sometimes dance with it too haha. I love Kpop and most of their songs are catchy and very easy to dance with ^_^

#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
-- I hate being around people who smoke in public places. It really irritates me to inhale second hand smokes especially if I'm riding a public vehicle like jeepneys.

#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
-- I wriggle my hands together whenever I'm nervous and I talk very loudly too.

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
-- I sleep whichever side is near the wall. I love sleeping with my back against the wall so I always have a pillow propped against it so it's not too cold on my back hehe.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?
-- I honestly can't remember my first ever stuffed animal. I usually have soft baby dolls when I was young and one of them, which is my fave, is named Violet ^_^

#9. What's the drink you always order at starbucks?
-- I'm not really a Strabucks fan but whenever I go there, I usually order Iced White Chocolate Mocha (decaf). I prefer going to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Seattle's Best.

#10. What's a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
-- This is easy hehe. I always preach to sleep early and drink plenty of water. I usually sleep around 12 midnight because I'm either in front of my computer or I'm reading a good book so I forget the time. And my body can't tolerate too much fluids so I can't do that too.

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
-- I usually have the shower head at my back.

#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
-- I don't think I have anything special. The only thing I can do is twist my tongue, whistle and flip my upper eyelids like almost everyone can do hehe.

#13. What's your favorite comfort food thats 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
-- That would be chocolates. I love love chocolates and coffee but ever since my doctor forbade me to eat/drink anything with caffeine because of my heart, I can't take them as frequently as I want to. Although I still eat 2 pieces of chocolates every day haha I really can't help it.

#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
-- "My gulay" haha I don't know where I started using this phrase but whenever I'm talking to someone close to me, this can frequently come up ith my story telling ^_^

#15. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing?
-- I usually sleep with a tank top and shorts. I prefer cool light clothes when I sleep ^_^


I hope you enjoyed getting to know me. If you decided to do this tag too, please comment below the link of your post so I can get to know you better too ^_^
