Thank you Mang Pidol... Paalam

grabbed from facebook
Thank you for the laughter, great movies, your silent advises through sitcoms and for that smile that warms my heart.  You will be missed.  Paalam Mang Dolphy.  Kamusta mo kami sa mga barkada mo, jamming time in heaven, surely God is so proud of you and so are we.

Monday Nelllzzzz (Nails)

Do you know I am excited doing my nails on Sundays?  Because the next day is a Monday!  And during Mondays we have our Flag Ceremony here at the office and we do the Panunumpa sa Watawat.  I am being boastful "mayabang" at my office mates, I want them to see what my nails look like :) and get praises on how beautiful my nail polish is. Hahahahah!  So much of me being mayabang, here's my NOTD:

Sorry, me being so excited took pictures without even cleaning the sides

My nails looked like they have fresh wounds
but don't worry, I just put little of that red liquid called merthiolate.

I used Sally Hansen's Black Out and the glittery specks on top is a gift from Johanne.  I love how it glitters, it can be orangey indoors and a beautiful green under the sun!  So sad that Iphone can't capture such loveliness.

Hoping everyone a great day!

Maybelline's HyperSharp Liner

New loots from Maybelline!  I am running out of my favorite mascara from this brand last week so when I got the chance to sneak at SM Makati right after my hubby's graduation, I went at Maybelline's counter right away.

While looking at the counter, one got my attention.  The Maybelline's HyperSharp Liner in color black.  It sells at 399 pesos or at least 9 dollars.  The super attentive sales person explained to me that this is one of their very salable products because of its staying power.  

My ever favorite mascara, Magnum Volume in Black and the HyperSharp Liner

Love the precision of the brush of this liner
Super fine line and can be built depending on what thickness you like

The sales person tested the product on me and after hours of window shopping and commuting home with the humidity and all it did stayed on my oily eyelids.  NO SMUDGING, NO BUDGING.  It dried faster than I thought after application.  This liner can be easily removed by soap and water or any make up remover.

I also tested this without a primer, but it didn't stay that much long.  With my uber oily eyelids it failed me on that.  So one (specially those with oily lids) must use a primer when using this liquid eye liner.

Happy  Saturday!

Better Version of my Corn Muffins

Last night, I made another batch of corn muffins.  This time, it really is something I can be proud of and most likely to be compared with Kenny Rogers Corn Muffins.  

Same recipe with the one I last made but I had to modify some step by step procedure.  First I combine wet ingredients in a medium bowl then on another bowl the dry ingredients.  I also made the butter and sugar creamed a little longer, it made my muffins much tastier.  I also used full cream milk from Magnolia.

I also bought an oven thermometer too which costs me almost 250 pesos to make my baking more precise.  Maybe that's also why my corn muffins turned out much better. 

Lastly, I used paper cups instead of butter spray.  Here's the difference of the two muffins in appearance!

The first muffin is flat and lifeless nyahhha!

The first I made did not rose beautifully unlike the one I made last night!  I really should use paper cups all the time.

Beautiful isn't it!  And delicious too!
This batch I made 12 regular sized Corn Muffins!  And I am happy too, Yipppeee!


Shawill False Eye Lashes

I am not new to using false eye lashes but I still have no post regarding this on my blog yet.  Last time I used simple falsies at work I was not able to take picture and last Thursday, at our office's 17th year anniversary, I had another chance to wear them.

I used Shawill False Eye lashes which I bought at SM San Lazaro department store.  It only costs me 59 pesos (HBC falsies costs much less :P ) plus the glue (I already forgot how much I paid for it).  I love the thickness and the length of this falsies,  they come in different thickness and designs.  I got the number 347 with just the right length for my taste.

It also has the step by step procedure at the back on how to put/use it! See!

I can say you can use it a multiple times just be careful taking it out of its box and from your lashes after using.  You just put it again in the box and use it for another look.

Here I am using the falsies.  Our group danced with the 80s songs and bright color it is, Madonna ang peg.

Me and Rochel 

The falsies made my eyes look much brighter and awake.  I also did some of my office mates' make up!  MUA lang ang peg nyahahaha!  But the night was a blast and we did go home as the 3rd placer.  Wagi!

Have a great week end peeps!

U-me-LV Nails

Sorry I haven't posted much about nails.  I had to cut my nails short because, as you know, I really got into baking and making cake pops which needed much hand works :)

But now I am growing my nails back and happy to show you my u-me-LV na nails  hahahaha!  Kahit sa nails na lang ang pangarap na LV.

Sorry, haven't cleaned the sides here.

LV nail water decals

I used LV designed water decals I bought at 168 mall.  A facebook friend/schoolmate whose in US was very excited seeing this design.  She has a couple of LV bags and purse and  maybe she wants this too in her nails.  She wants me to buy her this decal and I am willing to indulge her too :)

Happy Thursday!

Corn Muffins ala Kenny Rogers

And yes, it did tasted like those corn muffins from Kenny Rogers! Wagi!

I have these corn kernels which was only a free item from a grocery. From then on I searched for recipes over the internet where can I finally use it. And Alas, last week I browsed and browsed and my mouse led me to this food blog. The recipe said to be from the Top Secret Recipes. Really, super thank you!

And here's the recipe:

Kenny Rogers Roasters Corn Muffins

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup frozen yellow corn


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cream together butter, sugar, honey, eggs and salt in a large bowl.
3. Add flour, cornmeal and baking powder and blend thoroughly. Add milk while mixing.
4. Add corn to mixture and combine until corn is worked in.
5. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and fill each cup with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until muffins begin to turn brown on top.

I had to do some changes with the recipe though, I used canned whole corn kernel and Kosher salt in this recipe.  Also I had a hard time finding cornmeal!  I got my cornmeal from Healthy Option and shocked that they do sell reasonable priced items too.  I have to go back and make some time to see what other stuff they sell.

Super moist and nuggety (if there's such a word)!

My tasters, hubby and office mates really did liked it!  Will make another batch soon, because someone requested me for this tasty corn muffins.


Have a great Tuesday even if its raining down here.  God bless us all!
