SkinDeep Fiery Red vs. Careline lip and cheek tint

Before being washed
I am an avid fan of the no makeup makeup, and the rule of thumb here is that the lesser product, the better. You just need a light foundation, a mascara and that perfect “mukang kinagat lang” lipstain/liptint. For years, my benchmark product is Careline’s lip and cheek tint (my last tube that I believe I had bought 4 months ago is just 80Php but I have been to the gorcery earlier today and was surprised to see the price ballooned up to 160Php! tsk tsk) Now, my officemate introduced me to Skindeep cosmetics. I thought, for a trial price of 145Php why not try it. She too, was an avid fan of Careline so of course I have to get her to compare it against our benchmark and here are the results: 1. Fiery Red indeed lives up to its name. see the swatch on the right? what could be more fiery than that? on the left is our benchmark. 2. Even after attempting to wash it off, the color stays the same. Less applications more savings! 3. I heard this product is made from organic ingredients. well, I will try to get a list of the ingredients soon for those who wants to know 4. As it wears out, it sill kinda looks natural. So at the end of a busy day wherein you dont get enough time for retouches, It won’t make you look haggard.

So to wrap things up:
Will I buy it: Yes!
Ingredients: TBA
Upside: Does not fade easily
Downside: Not available in department stores yet, you still need to order it online.

PayMaya Review: Please Read Before Using The App or Getting The Card

I feel nervous. This is definitely a very bad feeling to get especially when we are talking about money.
Sabihin ko later kung bakit, later but first, a bit of a back story:
So currently, I have this sideline of teaching online ESL. The company pays me through PayPal. Ngayon, hirap talaga ako na mag encash from PayPal to BPI. Ok sana sya kasi Php50 lang ang bayad yun lang ang tagal before ko makuha ang pera. The last time, it took 2 days before nag-reflect. Not sure why. Anyway.
So I saw this on YouTube:

OMG! It was magic! Money was transferred literally in SECONDS from PayPal to Paymaya! I don't have to wait. I hushed the small voice inside my head that said. "Php 250 ang transfer fee nyan hoy!" In my mind, I have an option in case I have an EMERGENCY and needed to get the cash ASAP.
Boy I was wrong!
Let me remind you first that my account is activated, I have the physical card, I had it activated and updated-- the works! and yet in my Day 1 of this PayPal to Paymaya experien…

Maria's Edge Resort Review

Hindi nanaman ako makatulog! :) But it's a good thing dahil sa puyat minsan nangagaling ang motivation ko at oras ko to write (less sleep, more blogs ha?). Naubos na ng mga instik na tinuturuan ko kanina ang baon kong English kaya eto mag tatagalog na lang ako. 👌

Last May 27, 2017 na tuloy na din sa wakas ang aming family outing sa Maria's Edge Resort sa Los Baños Laguna. Sa pagkakaalam ko ung pinsan ko pa na nasa Saudi ang naka "discover" ng resort na ito at nung nakita namin ang pictures nya sa fb (  kahit mas mura pa yung unang private resort na kinausap namin, ito na yung binook namin. 
Maria's Edge Resort is located in Jamaica Hills Los Banos Laguna. Malapit sa UPLB at along the highway lang kaya kung gusto mo pumunta sobrang accessible kahit wala kang private vehicle. 
From Alabang sakay ka lang ng pa UP college na bus like St. Rose. Then, malalaman mo pag malapit ka na pag nakalampas ka na…

ACADSOC online job

I have been with ACADSOC as a part time home based teacher for exactly a month and a half today and here are my thoughts about it:

How do I feel about working here?
The best thing about working in Acadsoc is the flexibility. Every week I plot my desired schedule. On Mondays, for example, I advise my TM (Team Manager) that I want to take Mondays-Fridays 7pm-11pm and take Saturdays and Sundays off.  And if I want to earn extra cash, I take Weekend classes too. 
The next best thing that I like about Acadsoc is that it makes a great part time job. you can do it at home with minimal tool investments: you just need a laptop and a decent headset. I use Plantronics with a noise cancelling feature.  
Lastly, It is fairly easy, teaching especially free talk feels like you are being paid to listen. Just be prepared with your list of open ended questions, sitback, relax and watch out for any grammar or pronunciation errors. Recap and give a few tips.
How long do you teach each student?
