Beautiful Sunday #3

Hi guys! I had a jam-packed week because I wanted to make the most out of the remaining days before June kicks in. In a few days, I will be back in the world of academe.yay! Three days ago , 28th May , my parents celebrated their  35th wedding anniversary and we had a solemn celebration. I did not bring my camera and cellphone that day because I just wanted to be in the moment. Anyhoo, it was a day well-spent with my family.

How time flies! Allow me to share how I spent the last week of May. 

Finally, Shirley ( my highschool buddy and Chelsea's mom) and I were able to lunch out at Vikings Moa. It's been a yore since  we ate out. She had been cajoling me for weeks to try the food at Vikings even before I came back home for Korea . Indeed, the food was delicious especially the Lechon and the baked oysters.

Shaina and Patricia are my former 3rd grade and 5th grade pupils. Both of them are now in Junior college.We talked about anything that girls could talk about hahaha. Hay... these girls talked about kikay stuff na unlike when they were kids, they would tell me about their favorite cartoon characters especially Patricia. Shaina has had her long straight waist length  brown hair since 8 years old. She never cuts her hair short and she looks exactly the same when she was in third grade hahaha. 

I try my best to catch up with my former students, if my hectic schedules allow. Of course, all of my students have a special place in my heart. However, not many of them can say yes to get together because of their busy schedules. Thanks heaven for the social networking sites , I can still keep in touch with other former students.

Things I got over the week.

A new book " The Story of Beautiful Girl". I got this book because the synopsis was very interesting and the book was written by Rachel Simon,the author of " Riding the Bus with my Sister".

What's up with loom bands? I wonder why a lot of teenagers and even adults go gaga over it. Chelsea,made me one, the gold and black combi. The three-toned glow in the dark naman was made by her dad. They gave it to me kasi wala lang usa  daw eh. :)

I got tired of sporting red or warm rouge so I decided to try Maybelline's Color Sensational lipstick in NUDE NU34S and PINK ME UP 045. The former makes my lips dry ; it doesn't jive on my lips but latter is really nice. It appears very natural and it compliments my skin tone,too. This will be my signature lipstick while it lasts ,bye bye red lipstick!

It's summer and pastel colored clothes are the in thing , same goes with nail polish . Usong-uso sa Korea yung aqua blue but I could not find the right shade for my skin tone. I doubted if pastel colors would suit me kasi I am on  the darker side of the skin strata, but the sales clerk suggested these colors and she is also morena. Sige na nga I am actually so sold to my multicolored nails. Hindi naman pinintasan ni Mama so i think it looks fine.

On my pinky : Maybelline Color Show in Shocking Seas 303.
Ring finger : Revlon Brilliant Strength in Fascinate 050
Middle finger : Revlon ColorStay Longwear Enamel in Cafe Pink 060
Index finger : Nature Republic Colorwaltz in Lavander Pink
Thumb       : Faceshop Face It in GL112

That's it friends! I am off to The Feast Alabang . Have a Happy Sunday friends!!


  1. Jen! Thank you for linking up. I'm one of those people who are haven't tried Vikings. Haha Promise, when I'm about to try it naalala ko yung Php 900+ ko. May shoes na ako dun.

    Going out with your students, once or twice ko lang siya nagawa. Ang cute kaya! :) Kahit lolabelles ang feeling ko, nakakatuwa makasama ang mga bagets.

    I'm interested with the book. Let me add that in my list. Attractive dahil may "beautiful" :)

    And The FaceShop items, drool! For sure, when I have the chance to visit S.K eh mag ho-hoard din ako.

    Have a great Sunday and dyosko June na pala bukas :)

    PS You once mentioned in my Beautiful Sunday posts (the one where I featured my workplace) that you miss your Alma Mater. May I know if you studied in the school where I'm working. Although I don't mention the name, I'm sure familiar ka ;)

  2. Hi Diane! Ang mahal nga sa Vikings pag weekend 1000+ na sya pag weekends & holidays. But on weekdays naman they charge 688php. Pero kung mahina ka kumain lugi ka hehehe. Ang daya e super pampabigat ng tiyan ung nasa buffet table.
