Resort de Alberto, Medina Misamis Oriental

I’m going to walk you through Resort de Alberto of Medina Misamis Oriental. It was the resort we chose to stay during our short weekend getaway. It is a new resort in Medina that rings a bell in my ear because it’s new and frequently visited by my friends. I was intrigued about it so I have to checked it out myself together with few friends from CDO. Today, I’m going to make a tour for you. I like providing information to people who are planning for a vacation and I also love helping business establishment get promoted/recognized on internet especially the new ones and has satisfactory services. I had a good experience with Resort de Alberto so I’m sharing it with my readers. You might consider getting there one of these days!

To get there, just ride a bus to Medina, Misamis Oriental. The locals know well where Alberto’s is located so if you ask a person, he/she can direct you to it.

This is the receiving area of the resort, unique decorations and furniture displayed for the comfort of guests:

The parking lot is just enough:

This is after the kiddie pool. The functional hall for ‘I do’s’. Isn’t it a lovely sight? Of course, they will put decorations in the place so don’t worry about this being barren.IMG_9036_800x533

Now back inside the main resort. More Pics of the Pool:        1897700_10202408391545236_1489601176_n

The pool is wide enough for long laps! If you are a swimmer like my companions, you will truly enjoy the length of the pool. And the shade! The building is protecting you from the heat of the sun! 1798600_10202408391665239_1470786972_n  1891302_10202408385345081_623801498_n

A resort review won’t be perfect without trying their foods, so here goes the palatable menu on our table:

1622623_10202804220734115_891363589_n

Sinuglaw (sinugbang pork and kinilaw in one), Chopsuey, Beef in Mushroom, Calamares.. All good! I tell you, these are awesomely prepared! Even the rice is perfect! Wow, will not forget that dinner.

We bought some pasalubong at the restaurant at P240. The buko pie is good, not so sweet and its filled with more buko goodness. Unlike others that has more flour on it. This is a real buko pie!

GARNIER Light Complete – How it Complements my Lifestyle Change

This year, I have huge changes in my lifestyle. I have changed my diet and I have seen the changes of my weight when I turn away from processed foods. Thankfully, I have stayed with this commitment. Not only in the food that I have changed but also with the cosmetics that I use. I am aware now that my skin (as largest part of the body) absorbs everything we apply to it. This year I avoided harsh and strong chemically produced cosmetics as I am afraid of their effects on my body once they are collected. I even avoided lipsticks and apply occasionally only.

These changes in my lifestyle pushed me to look up for natural products. When I go to personal care products section, I always read the product’s labels first (it’s like a habit). It is my conscious effort to make sure that at least I’m using natural ingredients. Toxins are dangerous to our body so we have to be careful with them.

Despite my fear of chemicals, it is still my goal to look pretty and have fair skin so I searched for the best natural skin products that suit my needs. I am naturally morena and have that dark complexion. I have no complaint about my complexion as I am happy with it , what I wanted is to have a smooth and healthy looking skin. With the use of Garnier Light Complete Multi Action, my skin doesn’t just turned out smoother but has clearer results.

Lemon is naturally good for skin that is why I am enthusiastic to learn that Garnier’s main ingredient is lemon. You can tell by the way it looks, it look so lemon ayt? The smell is very enticing and its texture is very smooth that its addictive to apply. I’ve been using Garnier Whitening Moisturizer for quite a long time now. I can say I am satisfied with it.

garnier light complete cream

Garnier Light Complete has 2 main components which are pure lemon essence and salicylic acid derivative. They are both gentle to the skin for lightening. So as you rub Garnier cream you will not feel any harshness of it.

Here is a picture of happy me using Garnier Light Complete Multi- Action Whitening Cream. For me it is the best whitening moisturizer because you get results in no time and is gentle on skin. It has UVA/UVB properties so it lets you enjoy your time under the sun without worrying about your skin. Garnier keeps it healthy and protects it from harmful rays of the sun. Where else could you get that?

garnier cream

This moisturizing cream plays multiple roles for your skin:

-It keeps it fair
-Fades out acne and dark marks- All day oil control
- Shine-free look

I have dark marks on my face but my Garnier keep them at bay. It covers the marks perfectly making me feel confident any day! I even have the Garnier Light overnight whitening peeling cream so I have a good pair in handling my skin needs. They work hand in hand for me.

GarnierLight

This cream is everything you need. It is affordable and you can save a lot because it acts as moisturizer and lightening cream. You will not get any cream like this in the market in affordable price but of high quality. Again as I’ve mentioned above I like this one as it is naturally derived! The smell, the texture, it’s lemon!

Girls rejoice! Try Garnier now and see the difference in your life! Like their fb page here.

Take care Garnier!

Electrolux HUSH Happier at Home

I am writing this on a Sunday while the sun is up and a good smoothie would be a perfect pair while watching a movie inside the house to stay away from the scorching heat of the sun. Unfortunately I don’t have a shake right now. :-( We all want relaxing weekends, well who doesn’t? What’s your ideal relaxing weekend? Most of the time, I would opt to just stay at home on a Sunday. I would start my day with a fresh lemon juice and drink it while immersing to the new sunshine of the day. Simple pleasures in life!

On my next weekends I plan to wake up to a refreshing drink! And that is apple and carrot juice. Wonder why? It is loaded with detoxifying elements that washes away the toxins in my bloating tummy plus it is loaded with vitamins essential to our body (talking like a health buff here :) This is a better choice in my life now. I especially need this juice to awaken me up and start my day right.

To prepare this juice/shake I would need to get up earlier, gather the ingredients, and turn on the blender. And the whole neighborhood woke up to the alarming sound of my blender!!! That would be a nightmare, its not on top of my list to disturbed others while I make my own leisure – fruitshake. So I dig up the internet to look for the best silent blender. Now I have here my wish at the moment. Please somebody give it to me. This would be part of my changing lifestyle. My newly discovered Powermix Silent Blender of Electrolux. As I read through the reviews, I become more impressed with the appliance. First thing I was looking for is a silent blender, the Powermix is not only just silent but also a good choice to blend all your fruits/veggies. Take a look, it is sturdy and durable. It has a sound reduction system and vibration reduction system so everything you put there would go smoothly. No hassles, no pressures.

Electrolux Powersilent Blender Vortex Force

An efficient and reliable one! How happy would I be if I can sip my favorite fruit shakes/juices without leaving the home. Weekends would be much better to share with family. Here’s a proof that I am a fruit shake/smoothie lover!

601787_10200556001410037_1270882117_n

Moving on, Weekends for me is also a chance to instant detoxification. It means removing the clutters around the house so everything I see is in order, less stress, less dusts, more vitality in life! How do you do that? I start with piling up my things then carry on with sweeping the floor, mopping, scrubbing, dusting off manually using my conventional duster, etc. But this cleaning process is tiring and would take longer. My aim to having a relaxing weekend would be sacrificed if I continue this cleaning method. I dig up again with the help of Mr.Internet to find the best vacuum. I wanted a silent one too as I wouldn’t want to disturb the sleep of my sister in the afternoon. (She can only sleep long during the weekend as she’s busy throughout the week in school.) Viola, I found this – Electrolux Ultra Silencer Vacuum! Just what I thought would be perfect. Electrolux answered my prayers. It is made from 50% recycled plastic. Consumes up to 40% less power, making it the most eco friendly vacuum cleaner in the market. To those switching to green life, this one is a good to go.

Electrolux Ultra Silencer Vacuum 2

With this Electrolux Ultra Silencer Vacuum, I can do more in life. I can have a relaxing weekend like going swimming, doing yoga, a quiet facial treatment and reading books. Ahh! life could get better with electronic cleaners like this. Not just a cleaner but very helpful to achieve a relaxed life.

208500_10200555987409687_1689400931_n

These are the best things about spending a quiet and relaxing weekend at home, you can enjoy your quiet moment while enjoying the simple yet high quality of life. These appliances sure makes life easier and comfortable. This year I look forward to having these 2! I am positive that I can and I claim it!

John Ford Coley and David Pomeranz Concert

Feb 8, 2013. John Ford Coley and David Pomeranz had a joint concert at limketkai atrium, Cagayan De Oro City. It was a night full of love songs from the 80′s and 90′s. They performed singly because they are two different singers. I mean they have different styles and songs. We grow up hearing David’s wedding songs like king and queen of hearts, born for you, on this day, got to believe in magic,  and among others.

Both guy would joke about their age, but the wrinkles only brought wisdom and passion on their singing career. It is visible on their performance how they love to entertain their fans through singing and sharing stories in the middle. They both express love for the Philippines that’s why they would come back to the country frequently. While David would sing love songs, John Ford on the other hand would encourage tapping our feet and clapping our hands as we sang together with his not so heartbreaking songs like It’s Sad To Belong, We’ll Never Have To Say Goodbye Again, What Can I Do With This Broken Heart, In It For Love, Love Is The Answer, What’s Forever For and more.  I do love John Ford Coley’s style of music because of the fast and slow beat. Is it called slow rock? I can’t identify the genre. I can always follow the songs though I’m not familiar with lyrics. I find it relaxing to listen in the evening.

John Ford Coley singing to us ‘I’d Really Love To See You Tonight’. With the lights choreography, you can’t help but be amazed.

And behold! The two singers made a duet singing one of my fave bands – The Beatles’ ‘Twist and Shout. Everybody went wild.

The whole concert experience was magical and I shall say I was immersed to different forms of love but it all come to one truth that love happens to every person no matter where we are coming from.

At the event, Flawless franchisee has spoken to welcome the viewers and the guests. It was a great event for the bloggers as media partners. We were given some giveaways from Flawless. I got a whitening package which I am happy about. I used it last December, I noticed my pimples sprouting out (I guess that’s the function so bacteria will not build up in my face) I got horrified to see it on the mirror so I stopped using the cream and soap. Since the soap and cream can be used for body, I use it for body parts instead. I noticed the part I am applying it to has become smoother. That’s an honest observation!

This is the Flawless Skin Whitening Cream I am using now. The cream has a solid texture and white in color.

The package also comes with whitening toner and whitening soap.
