Butterfly Twists Offers Waterproof, Foldable Rain Boots

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 3:14 PM 0 comments
First, you were charmed by their pretty foldable ballet flats
Then you were offered to travel in style with the stylish foldable boots. Now, Butterfly Twists brings something new to the market with its foldable rain boots.  

The Windsor rain boots are part of the Wellies family, which makes stepping out in the pouring rain more fashionably convenient. And what’s even better is that you can pack these booties light, as they can be rolled and stashed in a waterproof carry bag., isn't that cute?

Mc Jim Classic Leather: My Trusted Companion

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 10:00 AM 0 comments
Belt is one of the many accessories of a woman.  
For several years, I convinced myself that the cheaper ones are okay as long as it is presentable and fashionable.

my 3 month-old belt
So I bought a lot of belts with a lesser value, with different colors and style and different sizes.  Yes, in that particular moment I don't mind the amount I've spent since it's cheaper.  But as time passed by I've noticed that those belts I bought didn't last longer....even for a month. :( And the total amount I've spent with them could buy a branded and stronger one.
I was so wrong!

Masuki: Delectably Cantonese

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 10:00 AM 0 comments
Because of heavy rains last Tuesday night, hubby and I decided to eat something hot.  
So while walking at the LG floor of Megamall B, we spotted Masuki beside the Bacolod Chicken Inasal.  Since, we haven't tried their mami yet, we dined in.

To give a few background: they started their business way back in 1930′s at the streets of Binondo.  
Wherein Ms. Willen’s (the owner) father used to go house to house carrying the noodles to sell.  From that, he was able to establish a restaurant they named Ma Kong Mami in 1964 then later changed to  Masuki.

Special Mami P120
They're serving an old style mami.  
I really don't have any idea about that but I guess it's the way they served mami in old Chinatown.

We ordered Original Special Mami which is good for two (P120).  It has chicken and pork strips with onion leaves for toppings. We also had what they call Saipao (Asado) (P55) and Sanyuk Pao (Bola-bola) (P57), both are their version of Siopao.

How I fell Inlove with Shakey's Salad?

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 10:00 AM 0 comments
I seldom visit Shakey's Pizza Parlor because I am not a pizza fanatic.  But I changed that notion last week when my sister and nephew visited us.

Shakey's and Me
Since I seldom see them, hubby and I decided to treat them at Shakey's because my nephew is requesting a lot of stuffs like pizza, fries, fried chicken and spaghetti which can only be found in Shakey's, I think.

For that particular night, we ordered Family Meal Deal 1 (P695.00) consists of :

1 large Shakey's Texas chicken barbecue flavored pizza

Shakey's Texas Chicken BBQ

Behind The Waterworks: The Process of Purity

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 7:00 PM 0 comments

I'm not yet a mother but when I become one I'm sure I'll be very protective and keen to details to whatever my children will be eating or drinking.

Mothers don’t settle for second best. 
 When it comes to their family, they go beyond what is expected of them to ensure that their families, especially their kids, are safe.

Today, one of the major things that concern mothers everywhere is the availability of safe drinking water. A mother doesn’t want her family to suffer from numerous waterborne diseases and is the reason why she keeps a close eye on her family’s drinking water.

Absolute Distilled Drinking Water understands the meticulousness of a mother’s heart. 
This is the reason why, just like a mother, Absolute goes beyond what is expected to provide Filipino families with nothing but the very best.
