Cupcake wishes!!

By | Celebrations, Great Ideas | 2 Comments


My sister had a great idea for our mom’s birthday.  She told me to go buy some i went to Gonuts Donuts to buy some.  They had many fancy designs. 

Instead of the traditional birthday cake, each of us made our wishes for Mom and gave a cupcake to her to blow.  It was a nice and unique way to greet her…..


Lush Christmas 2007

By | Christmas | One Comment


You can’t beat Lush for Christmas gifts.  Not only are we offering this completely green gift option, but we still have our amazing array of festive gifts that are all wrapped up, ready and waiting to give to that lucky person.  And this year, all the Christmas gifts are lovingly wrapped with 100% recycled paper and the majority are tied prettily with recycled paper ribbons.  They’re even filled with recycled shredded paper.  Now this has many environmental benefits, mainly that it’s a ‘clean’ filler, which means we don’t have to wrap each individual product in plastic bags, we can pack them naked (where appropriate), resulting in the saving of 4.6 million plastic bags annually.  Not bad, hey? 


If you think about it, Christmas really is an excessive time of the year.  It’s all about overindulgence and extravagance.  Here at Lush we’re all for a little bit of over-indulgence, but we do it in a way that’s kinder to the environment.  This Christmas, there’s a whole raft of individual treats and stocking fillers, along with luxury gift options, that are freshly handmade and contain environmental and animal friendly products. And there’s no excess packaging with Lush, as the majority of our little festive gems are solid, which allows for minimal use of preservatives and packaging.  Lush also don’t believe in using animals to test product safety, nor buy any ingredients from any supplier/manufacturer that tests anything they produce on animals. So check out Lush’s seasonal offerings below and be safe in the knowledge that you’re helping the planet as well as spoiling yourself, and your loved ones, rotten!

BLING CROSBY & BOB SOAP – BACK FOR ONE MORE SEASON! Back by popular demand, these show-stopping performers are the epitome of festive fun and merriment.  As with everything Lush, each is handmade fresh using the most wonderfully uplifting blends of warming, tonic essential oils to bring cheer to the dark winter nights along with skin softening and toning butters, oils, herbs, clays – the best Mother Nature has to offer.   Remind yourself of the all-star line up …  Lush is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI). Lush boutiques are located at Glorietta 4, Power Plant Mall, Shangri-La Mall, Greenbelt 3, Mall of Asia, and Bonifacio High Street. You may also visit us online at[email_link] 

Dinner by Kai

By | Foodie | No Comments

This is our second meal catered by Kai and we were very much satisfied.  The service was excellent and the food was very good.  All this for around P 700.00 ( not including the beef but they provided the stone cooker).  I think it is very reasonable for what we had and the portions were overflowing. There were leftovers which we got to keep.   We were a party of 13 adults and 4 children so I guess there was no minimum.  I whispered to my Mom that it is even less costly than eating in Kai itself and you get to have it in your own private venue :-)  So try them!


Tillie’s Lenguas de Gato

By | Christmas, Yummy! | 5 Comments


We used to receive these very popular  lenguas de gato that come in those round white plastic tupperwares during christmas time and always wondered where and who makes them.  Only to find out that our good friends and neighbor, Joey and Tillie,  sells them!!   We are so lucky they are our neighbors so now we can have them whenever we crave for it………. They are super thin, super yummy and super addicting!!!!  

They are homemade and come in two sizes (half  gallon and 1 gallon) and they  have been selling them every christmas season for about 10 years already, though they are available now year round.  So there is a christmas packaging and an all year round packaging.  It comes in these beautiful boxes:

It would be best to place orders early for Christmas. 

For orders, please call 8877798 (c/o Chuchie or Rona) or 7523134 (Maan) 


Yakiniku Senri

By | Foodie | 5 Comments

ConCon recommended this place to us so we wanted to try it. The problem with eating only as a couple is you cannot really try many dishes.  So we were only able to try 2 yakiniku dishes.  The basic beef, Japan Karubi cut,  and tongue.  We wanted to try the tongue because it had some unique variations I have never seen before ( with onion and with garlic).  So the one with garlic chips is what we tried.  I found the tongue a bit too thick. I prefer it sliced very thin.  The karubi beef  was very good and we had it two ways- with the regular barbeque sauce and I had them marinate another order in just salt and pepper.
