Pastry Puff From Uncle Tetsu Review



Every time I crossed the Building B of SM Megamall Building B coming from MRT Ortigas Station, I've been passing by this store in the entrance of SM Supermarket named Uncle Tetsu.



I know that one of their best selling item is the Cheesecake. The one with soft, fluffy buns with tasteful cheese on top. I actually just tried their free taste of it.



But one of the products that catches my attention is Pastry Puff. The reason for that is the price, for only 49php.



The friendly staff offered me their free taste of this. Take note, the size of the free taste that they are giving is generous enough to enjoy it. It seems like they cut the whole Pastry Puff into 4 parts in square shape.





Pastry Puff comes in 3 flavors : Mango , Chocolate and Custart. But the free taste that they only have is Mango and Chocolate so seems like Custart is one of the favorite flavors.

The Chocolate one taste so good. Its perfect to match with a hot coffee or chocolate drink.



But that time, I've decided to bought 2 pieces of Mango. I guess I love the sweet and refreshing taste of Mango.



The Mango jam inside is so generous. Its flowing but not too much.

I'm fully satisfied on this great discovery that I found in SM Megamall. I'll definitely buy another one but one is Mango and another one is the Custard.

Uncle Tetsu is available at Building B of SM Megmall ( near the entrance of SM Supermarket )

McGriddles by McDonald's is now available in the Philippines




While walking my way to home from my nightshift work, I passed by this McDonald's El Pueblo branch and I noticed a new poster offering a limited holiday edition: McGriddles.

I got tempted and intrigued on the description of it where it says that the bun has a generous amount of maple syrup, baked to perfection. Okay, you won Mcdo so I decided to try it before its gone since its only available for limited time.



So I decided to buy the McGriddles w/ Egg, Cheese and Sausage, opted for Pineapple juice instead of coffee.



When I unwrapped the sandwich, I wowed because its a hefty sandwich that will definitely satisfy the ones with huge appetite. This is actually perfect for the ones who always skip breakfast because they gonna be late to their work.

I must say that the sweetness coming from the buns is perfectly match to the saltiness given by the cheese and sausage. I forgot to take a picture of the maple syrup looks likena filling inside the bun because I'm so hungry that time. Hihihi.



Again, this is a limited time offer just like Twister Frieda and McRib so better drop by to your nearest Mcdonald's branch.

Creamy Pesto Carbonara from House Of Lasagna Review



From the recent Blogapalooza 2014 ( yeah, I know its too late, hahaha ), one of the participating booths is House of Lasagna. I visited their booths and they're giving free slice of their famous lasagna and it taste so good. And thank God, they gave us some information about their company plus a gift certificate worth 100php.



So before heading to my friend's birthday party for her daughter, I've decided to go to House of Lasagna in SM Megamall in lower ground building A to use the voucher. They've got lots of options in their menu but one thing that I usually order in a restaurant is carbonara. While browsing their menu, I spotted this interesting dish: Creamy Pesto Carbonara. I've tasted pasta in pesto oil so I've decided to try this since this one catch my attention.



So I asked the waitress for my order and presented my voucher so from 230php, my total bill is 130php. After waiting for several minutes which is understandable since its a restaurant, not a fastfood, they've already served the awaited dish.

Honestly, I got surprised on the first glance of it because I'm expecting the normal carbonara look with some pesto on it but the first thing that pops up to mind is: PESTO OVERLOAD. 


On the first bite of it, my first impression is right, the pesto is too overpowering and it seems like there's no salt or they only put less salt in it so it taste like almost tasteless. Thank God, they're not that selfish on giving me some parmesan cheese.



The waitress are so generous because she offered us a fresh garlic bread. Somehow, its a perfect match for this pasta dish. Actually, the garlic bread is perfectly satisfying alone.



I honestly sad that I wasn't about to finish it. I felt that it's a waste of money. Tsktsk. I heard from my friend that the only good thing from them is their lasagna and that's it.

Sampleroom.PH Experience



While browsing some skin care blogs before, I spotted a certain blog featuring a bb cream that she got from a site named Sampleroom. I'm surprised that the blogger ( sorry her name, hehehe ) got the featured product for free. At first, I was not interested that time because I was more focused on blogging about my latest OOTDs, hahaha.



But two months ago, I attended the recent Blogapalooza 2014 and Sampleroom is one of the participating booths. I just registered to site ( www.sampleroom.ph ) and viola, I got 100 points to use to get available samples from their site plus 2 bottles of Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner from Zenutrients ( I'll feature it soon ).

This is the biggest savings that I got from Sampleroom. Its 450php in the market but I got this during summer and I just paid 100php.



Few days after I registered, I got an email alert about their new samples and those are Jergen's with their new packaging and improved formula. I got excited because its one of my favorite brands for lotion. In order for me to get the free samples, you need to have enough points and since I got 100 point upon registration and it only requires me to use 35 points for each bottle, I ordered two of them. I only paid for 100 pesos for the shipping and handling fee. Even if I still have to pay for the free samples, if you look at it in a budget-conscious perspective, you're getting the products in a discounted price. For example, if I buy those Jergen's Body Lotion in a store, it will cost me 140 pesos for 2 bottles. But by getting it from Sampleroom, you're just getting in for only 100 pesos so you'll get 40-peso savings.

The first sample that I got from them.






Most of the product that they have are in full-size and there are some that really comes in a small size that is really designed for sample use only. In order for us to decide if we're going to buy the full-size or if its worth it to repurchase it, the member should try the product for at least 3 to 5 days. Once they tried it, they just have to put their honest but constructive feedback about it. Yes, Sampleroom will allow you to post your review even if its not a good experience for as long as you adhere to their guidelines. What's more exciting about using their service is for every review, you will earn 1 point. Once they approve your review, you will not just earn additional 1 point, you will also get back the points that you used for the samples. You'll also earn points by referring a friend who might be interested on trying out some samples. Just put their email address to sampleroom's website then once your friend received the invitation and registered, you'll automatically get 1 point.





As of the moment, I've been getting stuffs from them for more than a year and I'm satisfied that is why I share to my friends those samples by posting it in my social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram.

C'mon,, go check their website at sampleroom.ph

Pond's White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel and Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel Review



This is a shame to post a review to a product that I've tried almost a year ago ( March of this year to be exact, hihihi ). This is one of the samples I got luckily from Sampleroom.ph together with Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rose Gel as part of the bundled package since it was newly launched that time.



I got this perfectly timing for the upcoming summer season since this new facial wash and facial cream from Pond's is a gel-based so it might be refreshing after using it. So on my first day of wash, I just squeezed just a pea-sized amount to my palm and I noticed that it has a mid-thick consistency. I love that it gives me a refreshing feel after not too mentholated, just the right refreshness as if you just splashed a water with a little ice cubes.




Then I started using the Pond's Flawless White Dewy Rose Facial Gel by applying the right amount to my face and neck. I love how quickly it absorbs to my face unless to the usual facial cream that I used that it gives you a greasy feel like it just sitting in your face with out the absorption.



I used it for few weeks and I noticed that there's a slight peeling in some parts of my skin but not obviously noticeable but the lightening effect is not so obvious.



Verdict:

This gel-based facial wash/cream combo is an interesting product from the brand that I trusted for so many years. This new addition to our all time favorite skin care line is perfect for sensitive skin but still wants a rosy white skin. But if you're looking for a whitening skin product, this is not the product that you're looking. This product is made for those target customer who wants TO TAKE TIME to achieve a rosy white skin without harming their skin by drying/peeling it. I will definitely purchase this IF I can't find my favorite skin care product in a supermarket or skin care store. At least the good it about it is safe and suitable to my skin.

Chips Delight Chocoloate Chip Brittle Brownies



OMG, Its Weekend. Hands Up For The Weekend....

That upbeat track playing from my little brother's speaker wake me up in the morning. Wow, the long wait is over after a week of hard-work from your workplace, its weekend.

So my weekly day-off routine to drink hot coffee in the morning without being in a hurry to prepare going to work. Wait, I just found out that I got a bag of this sumptious treat from Chips Delight from the recent Blogapalooza 2015 held at One Esplanade on October 25. Wow, this bag of chocolate chips is so perfect to my hot, steamy coffee.



Chips Delight Chocoloate Chip Brittle Brownies is more crispier from the usual chocolate cookies. Actually, its like eating a toasted mamon ( Sponge Cake ) but the only difference is its thinner from the usual cookies and chocolate flavored with some little chocolate chips inside.



The first bite of it is so crunchy like whoa. Then when I took a sip of my favorite coffee, its so yummy because the chocolate chips melted in your mouth. I actually tried to dip it in my coffee just the usual way of eating pandesal and it taste so good, too.





One thing that I love about Chips Delight is the bag has a resealable zip-lock to maintain the freshness and crispiness to enjoy on the next day.





I thought coffee is enough to enjoy weekend restday morning but now its even more enjoyable because of the Chips Delight Chocolate Chip Brittle Brownies. So guys, you know what to do, go to the cookie section of your nearby supermarket and grab one or even more bags of my new favorite.
