Knitted Ombre

Knitted for summer? Even when it's hot out, why not? I'm not ready for tan yet anyway. I know, with the country's temperature today, wearing knits is probably the last thing you'd consider, but not me! I still love to wear long sleeves to cover my arms from the sun, while wearing skirts to expose my legs to summer's cool breeze.

Beautiful riot, isn't it? The one I am wearing isn't thick enough anyway. It's so comfy actually. It allows me to stroll anywhere I want and even watch a movie in a theater out of the blue (if you have crazy friends, I'm sure you know what I mean!). 

Besides, I feel like wearing this ombre thing and nobody can stop me. It's too pretty to just stay in the closet this season.

This is the second to the last outfit post with my chocolate brown hair. I had a hair makeover last Monday with Matrix, had it toned down and treated. Can you guess my new hair color now? ;)

I'll post more updates about it next week!

Old Summer Day

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all had a peaceful time to repent and reflect during the Holy Week. Today's outfit post is a bit different from the usual pastels or bright-colored ootd you'd see today. Mine's turning vintage because I want it to.

Sakura Season at Tokyo Bubble Tea

There's one season we'd all love to have and for me, it's definitely Spring. It's one thing I'd love to see in Japan actually. I'll miss Japanese cherry blossoms for now but good thing Tokyo Bubble Tea prepared their own version of Sakura that we can all enjoy in their place!

Do you love this place too? My favorite combo here is Honeydew Melon Milk Tea and Matcha Cappuccino cake! Aside from their tempting drinks and cakes, Tokyo Bubble Tea is one of my favorite milk tea places because of the Japanese-themed relaxing ambiance and pastel interiors. Now, they've made it look even better for springtime with a cherry blossom tree and Japanese lanterns!

Tokyo Bubble Tea Milk Tea Place and Restaurant, the country’s favorite milk tea shack in the country, is giving its guests yet another reason to have a sip by introducing its newest variant that’s sure to make every milk tea and milk shake lovers blush - the Sakura Milk Tea and Sakura Milk Shake.

Sakura Milk Tea P145 (M) / P155 (L)

The dreamy combination of green tea, milk, and vanilla essence is finished off with the aromatic cherry essence that gives that romantic vibe, apt for the Sakura Season, and reminiscent of the time when cherry blossoms are in full bloom. It's a sakura milk tea and it's pink. How could you resist?

“This is what Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant is about, giving a special experience of Tokyo to our guest. Through our offering of Sakura milk tea and milk shake, it’s like stepping onto the Sakura Season and witnessing the cherry blossom bloom with every sip,” Reagan Tan said, President and CEO of Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant.

Milk tea is best enjoyed with snacks. Chef Reagan introduced to use their best seller treats from the menu. First, we tried Bulgogi Nachos as spicy chips are the best match for a delicious milk tea. It's good to have a Japanese snack with a Korean twist. It's a mix of ground beef, onions, tomatoes, green seaweeds, spicy mayo and topped with black sesame seeds.

Next, we tried Nippon Ebi Maki. This rolls has mozarella cheese, teriyaki sauce, and mango and little masago on top. Plus, it has shrimp at the center so it immediately became my most favorite side treat. Yum!

For a heavier snack, you should try the Samurai Burger. The patty has lettuce and apple jam. Wait.. Apple jam on burger? It sounded a bit off for me but it was actually good!

If you are looking for rice meals, choose Omurice with Steak Mushroom Sauce with Hamburger Steak. This meal awesomely tastes like pizza. I love it!

Another good entree is their Grilled Porkchop on Roasted Tomato Sauce and Korean Bibimbap! Yes, Korean dishes are slowly invading their menu because Korean and Japanese food taste great together!

Since Tokyo Bubble Tea is celebrating the cherry blossom season, they are also serving Sakura Mango Roll! The whole role is P550 and a slice costs P120. This sakura cake has mango cream inside. Definitely a must try!

They have prepared a glass painting activity for us too. Can you guess which one's mine?

It was a bit difficult for me to leave this place. If only I could drink all their milk teas in a day. Haha. I'll probably just go back here when I can. :)

A Treat to Mom

I have to admit that, like every daughter/son, I also have bad times with my mom. There are instances that I think she's currently taking us for granted or sometimes feel unappreciated but in the midst of all these, I still spoil her from time to time. After all, she's still my mom. Since going to the spa is one of our common interests, I brought her to The Spa Wellness for a pampering experience.
