Bucket List Update - April 2014

I guess it's time to update my list. I'm happy to report that I was able to cross out some during my stay in the Philippines.

5. Dress up and have proper "dinner" with family.

This is not "dinner" but I'll take it. We are complete and we are having good food together. This is the first time we are all together - together. There was a time that my brother was away. When he came back, I left for Dubai so I was absent. Then my parents and sister migrated to the US seven years ago so she was absent the last time I went home. 

After seven years, here we are ... together again. I've missed my family so much. So thankful we had this beautiful Sunday together. 

7. Open a Savings Account

Yep, I did it finally! (and no, I will not post my account details. LOL!!). I have been wanting to open a separate savings account. Right now, I have another savings account which I call "screw you" fund. I'm saving enough so one day I can say -- Screw You! I quit!! 

The other savings account will be for something else like...I dunno, business maybe?

23. Have a family reunion (parents & siblings)

I realized that this is basically the same as #5 since we can't really have a proper "dinner" unless we are all together, right? (Sometimes I'm not too bright... haha!!)

But the best part about having the whole family at home at the same time is that we get to be reunited with the rest of the clan! This photo is with the family on my mom's side (this is still not everybody!! My mom has 10 siblings so imagine how many cousins I have!!):

This is from my dad's side in Davao: (My dad has 3 other siblings -- all at the front. The rest are their cousins)

And this is still my dad's side in Manila:

excuse the fatso! 
So that's about it. Still working on the rest of my list. Hopefully I get to finish them all --- its not easy coz it keeps getting longer. (LOL)

Swatched: Sleek True Color Lipstick

Ok, I know I've been saying I'm back and that I will be posting more frequent now but as usual, real life is getting in the way of my blogging. (LOLS!!)

Anyway, let me just start with this. I was able to try Sleek Make Up True Color Lipstick while I was on vacation. I'm not sure if Sleek Make Up is available in Dubai (is it? ) I know I don't need anymore lipstick --- (said no one ever!) but here's a couple of swatches for you:

Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in Mystic 783.

Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in Plush 794

Both lipsticks are matte and they glide perfectly on the lips.

As a bonus, here's Sleek MakeUp Pout Polish (with SPF15) in Pink Cadillac

This is a tinted lip gloss with SPF (and we ALL need SPF!!). I use this when I'm not in the mood for something "heavy" yet I don't want to look pale. 

Hope you like it!

PS. I got these from during my vacation

Review: Lenovo Vibe Z

Oh wow! I'm reviewing a smartphone! Ooops, did I just type that?! LOLS

Just before I went for vacation, I was given the opportunity to try out the latest smartphone in town, Lenovo Vibe Z. I was more than excited to bring this baby home with me and I will tell you why. Read on:

Back in Dubai

What do you do when you come back from vacation?

There's a ton of things to do and updating the blog takes a back seat. You see, I've been back for two weeks now (Hello everyone!! Sorry for not updating ... ) The first week I'm back, I got sick. Deym, Strep A! I was back in office for a day then the next day I was in the hospital. Can't imagine my boss' temper at that time!!

I'm ok now, thank you very much! =D

Last week, I was buried with work stuff. I couldn't even turn on my personal laptop. This is the first time I am just chillin' at home. Typing away as the kid plays with her toys. 

So, let me just tweak my drafts and watch out for a couple of reviews. 

Thanks for staying with me!!
