Review: Alba Passion Nectar Lip Balm

Ever wanted that Angelina lips?!? Or at least a kissable lips?!? Well, I do! I bet it's on every girl's wish list to have that irresistible lips :) This is one of the reason I've been searching far and wide to look for the best lip care. I don't have an Angie lips but my lips are full enough :) But it lacks moisture and ends up being dry :( I prefer lipgloss over lipstick. My lips looks moisturize compare with using lipstick. But there were some days that I just want my lips free from these stuff and just want my natural lip color. This is the time that I grabbed my lip balm. I have used a lot of lip balms. None of them gave me a lasting impression :( What about this Alba Passion Fruit Nectar Lip Balm (whew!)? Does this made my HG then?

I bought this at Market, Market for less than Php200. It's made up of 82% certified organic ingredients. I consider this as an organic lip balm. And what's even good about this product is it wasn't tested on animals! Definitely an animal-friendly product :) I've been using this product for four (4) good months now. And I'm sad to say that it wasn't working well on me lately. I don't know what happened to it. When I started using it, my lips loves it! It really does moisturize my lips and no more dry, chapped lips. But lately I've been experiencing dry lips again :( This is the only lip product I've been using for the past four months. I have to wear this all the time to stopped my lips from drying. It's like after I drink I have to apply again! Urgh! This wasn't the case in the early months I'm uisng it. Even if I drink, my lips stayed moisturize. What happened to you Alba?!? I would love to call you my HG but then you're not keeping it up :( huhuhu

Price: 4/5 stars
Performance: 3.5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars

I like the packaging but my only problem is the cap can be tight that it's difficult to open it. There was a time the cap when flying out and ended up under the bed. I have to kneel down and search under my bed for the cap :( (hassle!) Overall, it wasn't the lip balm for me.This is good for those lips that do not dry all the time. When you just need a little moisture, you gotta have this. I just have to hold on to it first as I'm still looking for my next lip balm adventure :)

Take care guys :)

The King in the Ring

What a massive day it was! Every Filipino were on celebration mood yesterday. The number 1 Pound-to-Pound Boxer has once again proved to the whole world that he is the King in the Ring. Manny "Pacman" Pacquaio is the King after beating Miguel Cotto in the 12th round by TKO (technical knockout) . He is the new WBO Welterweight Champion at the same time it was his seventh belt. Thus, making him the first boxer to win seven titles in seven different weight divisions. Wow! What an achievement :)

I was privileged enough to watch the match Live! over at SM Cinema thanks to my ever generous sister ;) The main match started at around 11am. We got at the cinema at around 9:30 am. There were three matches before the main event. I just slept the whole time and asked my sister to wake me up if it is Pacquaio's fight already (hehehe). I'm not a boxing fanatic. There were only few boxing matches I watched. It is not a fun sport for me. But if it is Pacman fighting, it's another story. I remember in the cinema every time Pacman was shown everyone were cheering out. I felt the excitement inside the cinema. Everytime Pacman hits Cotto everybody cheer out with a "Yes!". If Pacman got cornered everyone would shout "Get out!". When he got hit by Cotto, it seems that everyone can feel the pain (lol!). Then when Cotto fell everyone where screaming with joy. Cotto fell twice and he was really hit hard by Pacman. His face was swollen and bleeding but he never gave up until the referee stopped the match.

The match was entertaining enough but it still lacks excitement. Cotto came out strong in the first two-three rounds. But Pacman was able to control the match until the end. I really hope for a KO as a result. I believed that Pacman can knockout Cotto especially in the last few rounds. Cotto was just dancing around the ring and he really looks in pain. He wasn't anymore going inside the ring to fight rather he's letting Pacman catch him. I know it's his strategy but hey dude you're a boxer. Why can't you fight like a real boxer facing his opponent in the center of the ring?!? Even Pacman got disappointed at him for dancing around the court. Everybody were laughing everytime he does it. He was wasting the time. But at least we got to learn a new move called The Cotto Dance! (lol!)

Again, the Filipino's pride once again unite us all Filipino. We were all in one in supporting and cheering him throughout his match. If only we could be like this everyday, our country will never be the same.

Movietime: Patient X

I've never been a fan of horror films. I hate watching one unless there is just a sudden urge in me to watch (weird me!). The last horror film I watched was Shake, Rattle and Roll last year. I think it was the 10th installment of the popular Filipino horror series. Since it was Halloween Day so it is best to scare yourself (lol!). I did not watch it by myself of course, I have my siblings with me :)

Patient X is a Filipino horror film directed by the internationally-acclaimed Director Yam Laranas and starred Richard Gutierrez and Cristine Reyes. The film tackles on Aswang which is a local version for vampire.

The story is about a boy whose family was murdered by Aswang. Back then he has no idea who killed his family until a childhood friend contacted him that they were able to capture the murderer. This friend of him is the Chief of the police in his hometown and whose family was also a victim. He returns back to his hometown to face this murderer only to find out that it was his old friend (Cristine). There he found out the truth and his murderers are now a threat to the entire town.

Popcorn: 3.5/5 popcorns

My say:

I wasn't happy about the film. It was scary indeed but the story didn't convince me. It was a pretty plain story for me. There was no excitement on the story nor you'll feel scared but the actions and sound will do. The film made me compare with Laranas another film which also starred Richard Gutierrez, Sigaw (Echo, hollywood version). I really like that film. Overall, it was scary but the story wasn't convincing.

I heard that the film will be shown internationally on the Sundance Film Festival. Wow! I wish them still the best after all they will represent our country :)

Take care guys :)
