T and I went to S&R before leaving for Boracay to buy some things but we got distracted with cool kitchen stuff. Check out this Vintage Cotton Candy Machine which is a great buy if you're hosting a children's party at your home!
Last year, I saw La Cocina de Tita Moning on Deal Grocer, a company I trust because I've never had a problem with them unlike with other group buying sites (read my blog post about the Metro Deal Scam). I bought a deal for a four-course meal and thought of taking T there for his birthday, but then we watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens instead and things got a bit busy afterwards.
I also planned a birthday trip for him to Dumaguete and Siquijor, which I still have to blog about, so I forgot all about the deal I bought.. Until last month when Deal Grocer reminded me that I have a voucher about to expire. I booked us for lunch one weekend and it was timely because apparently, La Cocina de Tita Moning is already closing by the end of May. So if you plan to go here, I suggest you book now. You still have a few days! I'll be posting their contact details at the end of this post.
La Cocina de Tita Moning is located inside the Malacañan compound. Good thing T is familiar with the way because he would drive me when I have meetings in the area.
One morning, I got an unexpected delivery and when I opened the box, I smiled when I saw what was inside.. Reese's, Reese's, and more Reese's! Apparently, Serenitea's new drink offerings all involve Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Although I buy Vaseline petroleum Jelly, I had no idea that is a do-it-all wonder product that can heal burns, rashes, cuts, and bruises! I only use it on my lips and my feet to moisturize. I was never aware about its healing properties and other skin benefits.
It's also only recently that I've learned that tropical weather can actually dehydrate our skin! I always thought that I should moisturize only in places where the weather is dry. Unknown to many, including me, a hot and humid climate does not mean that one's skin will not turn dry. Hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, exposure to heat and pollution while outside--- all of these strip the skin of natural hydration and moisture. And to address this problem, Vaseline launches their new Vaseline body lotions which contain Petroleum Jelly!
