Namaste | Nepali Food is love


My favorite Nepali friend.  We may differ in views and all other stuff but you know, she's still my favorite. I'm not in any way tolerating all her deeds but she's my fave.

Chicken Tikka!

Supposed to eat TANDORI but since we're tamad, we ate the boneless version. It was kinda good! 

mango lashi

I also like their LASHI. Must have been very popular in Nepal because every restaurant I went to offers this. 

momo

Nothing really special about this momo. I just think I like GYOZA better.



 Also nothing special is this garlic rice. I mean, it's not even a Nepali food but since we ordered, must include!

lashi and chicken tikka
my lunch set

Cheese Nan for the win! It's sooooooo good! 

Mutton and Keema Kare

At this particular restaurant. I ordered the hottest option for kare which I wouldn't ever do again. I still enjoyed my food though! I just thought I would have enjoyed it better milder. But anyways! So yeah I think I may have told you that Kare is my favorite food of all time (or is that Takoyaki?) and yeah, I think Nepali/Indian food serve me well. Will probably try more food from there in the future! Bye!

Zushikaigan Beach 2017

ombre skin tan or what?

That uneven tan is from Enoshima Beach. So I thought I'd be able to fix my tan by going to this beach but oh well. Let's see! 


Shin-Zushi. Somehow I feel so uneasy going to this place. You know, someone I used to know lives here. Oh well. Goodness gracious. Bitter??? Hahaha

the beach

It was so early when I got there. The sun was not even out. Well actually, the sun was not out until about 10-ish and I got there around 8. 


The water is/was hella clearer in Zushi than Enoshima. Though the only problem that I saw is that it was very rocky! I didn't swim or anything so it wasn't really a problem from me. 

beauty

Also, because it's jellyfish season already, not a lot of people came. Bonus for me to be honest! But!! Lots of barking dogs so as much as I wanted to sleep whilst tanning, I wasn't able to. 


And with that being said, the unevenness of my tan just got a little worst. Tan is almost gone by the way so don't ask. Ciao!

Ramen 壱角家 Sagamihara


Second nearest ramen house from my place so you know what that means! Food trip! 

stamp card

I have been here a total of 5 times I guess. It's not fantastic but it's not bad either so I'm not really mad about it. 


This is one of the modern ramen houses around town which I'm okay with but you know I kinda prefer the old school kind of shops where you just see everything being done in front of you. 

alcoholic coke and chashu tonkotsu ramen 

The chashu was very delightful! I liked it. 

tonkotsu ramen

This is probably my favorite. I mean, I know I vowed to only compare chashu ramen from ramen shops but you know it's good to come back couple of times to compare a couple of items from the shop itself as well. 

Ajitama Ramen

It's a very common ramen shop and you can always find similar tasting ramen everywhere here in Japan so yeah. That's all!

Enoshima Beach with Friends


Made a fool out of myself with this hairstyle. Yup. I was so happy that this trip came to life as planned two years in a row already. We were all like, if we don't go now, we all know it wouldn't happen at all this year and so we went. 

sunbathing

I came here to tan more than to swim but I can't seem to achieve such. That tan is actually just the tent's shadow. Also, I was babysitting most of the time. Don't ask.

Yas

This is actually the nearest beach from all of our places so we decided to go here. Also, we were with a child who might not like long hours of travel. 


It was not very pretty. Water was hella muddy. View was chaotic. Sun was perfect though. 

Enoshima
Yuki Chan

I have been here in my early years (according to my mother) but you know, I have no idea. It all looked new to me. 

yas

This is us 5 hours later. 

Yuki, Mikie, Sara, Ate Michelle

We didn't have much time because Sara has work and goodness gracious, she's just so magulo kausap. So we came to the beach and she didn't bring anything!  And she kinda blames me because she said she asked me if I'm gonna swim then she said that I answered with something like, nah, I'm just gonna sleep under the sun or something. Which I did, for the record! But that doesn't mean I wouldn't swim. And it doesn't end there! Before inviting her, I asked if her schedule's clear and she said yes but on the day itself, she said she had to work at night and that we should have told her earlier. Goodness, Sara! But it's okay. If anything, I'm so so so glad she came! :) Life saver!! Sara, if you're reading this, I'm not mad. This is just how it works here. 


Before going home though, we were able to eat Hotate! My fave. It was hella expensive for 800/pc. It was 500 in Osaka!! Rip off! 

the market (sort of)

That's all! I'm so glad I was able to spend time with friends. Ciao!

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Review

oily mess

Cushion thingy has been around for quite a while but it's my first time getting one and here's what I think about it. 

Pink Beige

They do have three shades available and I got the one in the middle. I didn't get the lightest shade this time because it's not as promising as this one. It only said something about fairness and stuff whilst this one said it's radiating and brightening. 


This says it only has 15g worth of product. I don't really know how much that is but you know, the Maybelline BB Cream that I use everyday has 30ml in it and I've been using it for what? 6 months already? So yeah! I'm not really heavy on make up so maybe this will last me long as well. Anyways. To be honest, I'm not a fan. It's too watery for my liking. In a sense that it takes too much time to apply because you really have to layer it and stuff to get the coverage it promises. This took me around 5 minutes to apply. Well you know, compared to when I use my BB Cream which I can apply for like a minute or two max! Or maybe (like always) I'm not doing it right. Who knows? But you know, I'm still willing to give this a chance. Maybe when I'm not in a hurry or something. It's very dewy though which I kind of like. 


This is when I powdered my face (already). It's a nice/dewy/fresh/Korean look! I kind of like!! That's all!

HeyMikie Sinigang na Baboy Recipe


I don't usually cook because you know, living alone doesn't really require you to always cook but there are some recipes that I can cook very well so I'm just proud to share! 

the ingredients!

Spinach
Turnip 
Okra
さといも/gabi/taro
Tomato
Enoki Mushroom

And yes, you can take away whatever it is that you don't like and vice versa! I don't really use siling pansigang because honestly, I can't taste the difference but if you're into that, feel free to add as well! 


When it comes to sinigang, I find that the fattier the meat, the better!!! Back home, in the Philippines, they even include the pork's skin! Anyways.


I also think that the more sour the sinigang is, the better! For 1 liter of water, I put in 1 and a half packet of sinigang mix. In ths instructions, it says to only put 1 pack for 1 liter but nah. Also, while you're at it, add 3 tablespoon of patis (fish sauce) or salt to taste! 

ta-da!

Always nice to cook sinigang when it's almost winter or whenever you just feel like eating really. That's all!

SNSD is Back! (Holiday & All Night)


SNSD is back! Actually, I thought they already disbanded or something but I guess only one of them backed out. Yup! Welcome to your tape, Jessica Jung. JK! Good for her! I mean, let her do her thing!

Two music videos came out earlier this month and yeah they're both okay. Good to hear from an OG Kpop group that's for sure. 
 

Holiday


Who did this to you, baby girl? Definitely not something I think she should rock. Or it's probably just the bangs. 


Sunny! So refreshing to see her. I actually don't remember if I like her or Hyoyeon more but one thing is for sure, I do like them both! 


Yas!
 

I liked the Holiday music video better I think. 
 

Glam! Just a disclaimer though, I speak no Korean so I don't really know if the music video is relevant whatnot so don't ask. 
 

All Night
 

Yas Sunny!
 

I don't really like Sooyoung much but damn her looks' on point!!! She was soooo gorgeous!! Also very very skinny! 
 

Again, I don't know what this is all about. I would guess but believe me, you wouldn't want to know. Also, I saw this on SME's YouTube and it said there clean version so you know...That's all! Bye~
