Myra® VitaSmooth Facial Wash Beautiful Inside & Out

Myra products has always been included in my daily regimen for oral supplement and even for cosmetic use. I grew up knowing this brand from my Mother and my cousins who uses the brand, until now! 
I am happy to discover about the new line of Myra Facial Wash. 
The scent passed my criteria for a facial wash, I like how fruity and refreshing the scent of this facial wash. Also, the consistency of it for a facial wash is acceptable. It is not too watery and you can create a lather before using it as a facial wash. It really gives that smooth-feel after using it. I have to see the effect of it's whitening ingredient in the coming days of using the product. 

The consistency of the product is a little watery unlike Myra VitaWhite but the scent is quite the same. The moisture feel after using it give my skin a non-drying feeling, it gives that supple and fresh feel on my skin. And, I never had problems with rinsing this off plus it gets rid of the stubborn eye make-up I wear the whole day. 

You can choose within the two that will suit your skin condition and your need to cleanse your face, they both offer skin rejuvenation after use that our skin deserves.

Gangnam Premium Korean Buffet Opens At Harbor Point Mall- A Must Try!

As much as I wanted to stay away from buffet restaurants it's like a magnet that keeps on pulling me close everytime! Earlier last week we had dinner at Holly's for my daughter's dinner celebration and my work week ended with a VIP pass at the newly open Koren buffet restaurant- Gangnam Premium Buffet (food, food and more food... haha!)

Gangnam Premiuim Buffet opened last November 20,2015 they offer Korean dishes such as Samygeopsal, Japchae, Maki rolls, Kimchi, Sweet and Spicy Chicken and variety of appetizers you can choose from. They also serves rice, soup and fruits. They also offer drinks from fruit shakes, to iced tea, sodas and beer which is not included in the eat-all-you can price of P299.00. The price is very affordable if you will compare it from other Korean restaurants, you can get limitless food you want as long as you can handle it.

My buffet trick is not to overload my plate with everything in it. I always get two plates, one for the appetizers and for the main course. I only get portion of every kind for me to taste, I usually go on the second serving if the dish or any appetizer interest my palate. 
I like the authentic flavor of the kimchi the spiciness is just right. The Samygeopsal corner is quite good too, but I was expecting Romaine lettuce instead of Iceberg kind. You also need to check out the rest of appetizers, the crispy anchovies, Ddeok-kochi was a interesting too. They also have crispy water spinach and the colorful Korean veggie pancakes. 

I will definitely go back and enjoy the whole course buffet again, probably with some friends. For me buffets are fun to do when you are with people who loves buffets too. 

If you like Korean food or simply wanted to try it check out Gangnam Korean Buffet ( formerly Jay-Jays Restaurant) located at the 2nd floor of Harbor Point Mall. Bring your family and friends and enjoy the deliciously sweet and spicy food of Gangnam Korean Buffet Restaurant. 
Special thanks to Argee of Harbor Point Mall for the VIP pass. :) 
Definitely a bitsenpieces approved buffet restaurant!

My Daughter's M Birthday Celebration

November 17, 2004 was the day when I gave birth to 8+lbs baby girl and after 11 years she still the baby girl, the cutest and the sweetest baby. 
Since her birthday landed on a school day we planned for a bonding time with some of her school friends to an afternoon arcade and a foodie trip. It was a fun-tiring afternoon to chaperone kids who were full of energy... but it was so worth it.
On the day of her birthday she went to school and gave her some money so she can buy some candies and cookies in the school canteen she wanted to give to the rest of her classmates. 
When we got off from school and work we went straight Holly's Buffet inside Subic Bay Freeport Zone with her grandparents and uncle. 
Here are some of the food photos from the restaurant that might interest you when you visit Subic Bay. The food is quiet good for an eat-all-you-can buffet. P289 per head and they serve lunch and dinner. 
The venue can host functions and small parties too. 

With us is my daughter's newest fave toy cat that was a gift she received. 

The Samygeopsal corner. 

Creamy sausage
Cheesy pizza
Pancit canton
Plain rice and fried rice on the other side 
Egg drop soup and they also have black seeweed soup

They also have a siomai corner with chilis and oils you can choose.

Taking Gifting to the Next Level

Christmas is truly our favorite season of the year and it is fast approaching. The season of merriment, joyful celebrations such as reunions and gatherings, receiving and accepting gifts is one of the best parts of it. 
Speaking of gifts, If you were you're going to be asked for your Christmas wish list, what would it be?

For me, my simply extravagant wish list for this Christmas would be a combination of a technology upgrade, a two-wheeled to go equipment and a baking aid. 


When I started my world online I was not that very particular with the technology I am using. I started using a desktop at home doing usual online browsing plus some social media activities. Before I never knew that I needed more but as time and technology progress I needed a fast-reliable and that can catch up with the demand of my blogging world. Also, the benefit of bringing it anywhere I go. This Asus Zenbook UX 305CA is the perfect notebook I can wish for this Christmas. 


One of my passion is cooking and baking. I find it as a relaxing activity especially when I share it with my kids. With this baking oven, I can create any sweet dessert for the sweet tooth creatures I have at home... well, they got it from me, haha! From cakes to muffins to simple bread would be a click away from them to enjoy. Who knows this time I can get my wish from Santa SM! :)

My last wish and I think might be granted with a little more patience and work is a new mountain bike which I can use to get in shape and go around road biking like I used to do before when I had so many available time in my hands. My first on my Christmas wish list. 

My eldest son is a sporty teenager, from soccer to badminton to table tennis he never gets tired. This is the perfect gift idea I have for him and it is a pricey gift idea but I know he will go ecstatic to receive his own GoPro Hero set for Christmas. 


For my daughter, this pink FujiFilm Instax Mini8 would be the best gift she can receive this Christmas although she knows this pink Instax camera is pricey she still hopes to get one of this. Gift ideas for girls are limitless as long as it is
Pink cute you can go with it. :)

With all the Christmas wish and ideas that I mentioned above, there is also a part of giving back and sharing some to others especially to those in need. 

Giving a portion of what you have is the biggest to someone. I and my kids have this simple act of kindness for the past years to give out their old and new clothes, toys, and food to less fortunate kids in an Aeta community. Kanawan village is a small village 90 minutes away from the city. You can get there via land transportation and a 30-minute trek up the hill. This year we will be doing the same thing send out toys and clothes to some children there and give a little smile on their faces. 

In the photos below are the previous gift gifting to the community along with some sponsors and with my photography buddies whose passion is to create wonderful photos and can bring smiles to people regardless of what they have in life? We shoot, we share and we care. 
Same as what SM upholds its tagline... SM Cares! "There's joy in giving this Christmas!"

Since we will be needing more items to give away this Christmas to the community, I am happy to find out that SM will give out discounted prices from toys to clothes to even gift baskets which we can avail at a less cost.  We can spend more and can give out more in quantity. 

                            *** all photos are sole property of yours truly (aadcphotography)
    
                             
                               
                               
                            

The smiles can never be brought by any amount of money we have, the joy that we can give can be stretch a thousand times to every single kid in this community.
