Aftershift @ Uncle Cheffy

Uncle Cheffy


When it's Friday and it's payday, my mind usually shouts for carbs and caffeine. Who doesn't want to treat him/herself after all the work, all day and all week? So during the last hour of our shift last Friday, 141026  (oops, this is actually a late post), we decided to go out and eat somewhere 'cause I don't want to go home yet.

After searching restaurants that's open 24 hrs on Zomato, we decided to go to Uncle Cheffy which is located near our office, at McKinley Venice Piazza. So it was me, Niel, PK, Diona and Apple but since PK got a 59er call that lasted for almost an hour, Apple decided not no join anymore since her lunch break is over. Supposedly, we'll be in Piazza by around 1 or 1:30 but PK delayed it for an hour. Me and Niel were so hungry back then.

Soooo, the wait is over and PK came down finally and apologizing to us. It's fine but we're hungry. We just walked and stopped to get some money first, Lol. After going to the ATM booth, we faced our next problem; where's Uncle Cheffy? Too bad, signal on the area is soooo slow, can't even pull up Google. So we scanned the area and funny that we didn't notice that the place that we are looking for is right in front of us!

The sign on their door says OPEN but we're afraid that they are about to close because the lady inside is already mopping the floor. It's only PK who has the courage to enter and we just followed him, haha! We were given water and their menu; we scan it for a couple of minutes and then gave them our order.

Diona whie waiting
I was trying to take a picture of the woods but.. Hello Diona!

Uncle Cheffy glass
Cute! This one is actually a display but I love it and I'd like to take it home. Lol.

We decided to order their All Meat Barbequed Panizza, Memphis BBQ U.S Beef Ribs, Cheffy Cheesecakes and one pitcher of iced tea. Niel would like to have some Margarita but cocktail drinks are no longer available as per the waiter who's assisting us. PK ordered sisig, rice and mango ripe shake.


Uncle Cheffy Panizza Beef Rib Sisig
Me trying to do flatlay. Fail!

Uncle Cheffy Panizza

This All Meat Barbequed Panniza was so good. I love the crunch and the little saltiness of it. It costs PHP 235.00 and it comes with salad thingy, that I like, I almost ate all of it.

Uncle Cheffy Memphis US Beef Ribs

This one costs PHP 250.00 and it's 250 grams of beef ribs. The meat is sooo tender and so flavorful. We love the little potatoes and greens on its side also.

Uncle Cheffy Cheesecake

This cheesecake is sooooo good. One slice is not enough for me, tbh. Oh, this costs PHP 150.00. There's a funny thing behind this cheesecake but I'll share that later.

I wasn't able to take a picture of PK's food 'cause I am too hungry already, haha. But the sisig that he ordered is delicious as well! Perfect partner of rice or beer. Their sisig costs PHP 250.00 if I am not mistaken. Mango ripe shake costs PHP 115.00, their rice is PHP 25.00 and PHP 175.00 for the iced tea pitcher.

Mints

So we're here to the funniest moment of that night. Diona is really a funny, you will be laughing and laughing whenever you're with her. So here's the moment.. We are chatting about something while eating our cheesecakes when Diona asked me..

Diona: Monique saan na 'yung dahon? Kinain mo na? (Monique, where's the mint leaves? Did you eat it already?)

Me: Hindi ah! (Nope!) ** It's on the side of my plate.

And then we continue chatting again while savoring the goodness of the cheesecakes when Diona uttered "Lasang damo!" (Tastes like grass!) after a couple of minutes. Niel who is sitting beside her noticed that there's only one mint leaf left on their plate! He asked Diona if she ate it and she said yes! PK and I couldn't stop laughing while hearing her answer! Niel too was trying to explain that mint leaves are not edible, and God, the expression of Diona and our laughter made our night unforgettable! We can't really move on to Diona's act and we're still laughing about it while we are going home.

So yes, that our experience at Uncle Cheffy. Share me your thoughts!

My BPI E-Prepaid Card | How To Apply

Wednesday, 26 October 2016

I've been wanting to have a credit card for the longest time, in fact, it's one of my Birthday Wishlist that I didn't accomplish. The reason why I wasn't able to submit all the forms that's needed is my schedule. My work starts at 3:30 PM, the earliest time that I can get up to bed is 1:00 to 1:30 PM. Transportation may take 1 hr depending on the traffic and I don't think I still have enough time to go to the bank and wait for the long queue.

Good thing, My BPI E-prepaid card came out and will let you enjoy having a credit card without a hassle! No more waiting on the line just to fill out the application form and no more letters or phone calls demanding you to pay for your bills. All you have to do is go online and wait for 5 days!

my E prepaid card
Last week, my friend at the office, April showed me her new E-prepaid card. She said that it only took her 5 days to get her card and it's only 350.00 PHP! I was impressed and then immediately search it on the internet. April told me that she got the application form on Facebook but I was disappointed when I got home and tried checking BPI Prepaid page.

BPI E-Prepaid page BPI E-Prepaid Card link BPI E-Prepaid Card error  

The link that they are providing isn't working! So I tried searching it on the internet instead, found a link and filled out the form and voila. I got my confirmation page! I even confirmed this by emailing them to see if my application was successful. Hehe, I am just making sure that the page that I used was legit and not a scam.

I went to BPI branch that's located at the same building where I work and check if they already have my card. I presented one government ID which is SSS and they searched for it. And it was there! I was thrilled tbh. The representative who assisted me gave me a form and asked to fill out the boxes with my Account number, E-prepaid number, etc. I handed her my 350.00PHP and I'm done. Easy peasy!

You will be getting the form below. Just select the color of your card and start to fill out the form at the bottom part.

NOTE:  Branch locator button/option  is not working also. But you can check HERE instead to see the nearest BPI branch where you can pick up your card. Just enter the branch name and code manually and hit Submit.

Sorry if this is not clear. Screen shots are from my phone.
You will be getting a confirmation page like this after submitting the form.

And that's it! Wait for 5 days and go to your nominated branch and check your new E-Prepaid card. Just don't forget to bring any government ID and 350.00 PHP.


I haven't tried loading my card yet as it hasn't been added on my BPI online account. I read somewhere that you need to present your application form to BPI first to have your E-Prepaid card added on your account. Like srsly?  But I will update you as soon as I have added mine.

Careline's Cheek And Lip Tint Review

Friday, 21 October 2016
Careline Cheek and Lip Tint

Aside from Liquid Lipstick, Lip Tint is now the new hype; would you agree? For me, this will be perfect for days when you're not feeling like wearing a make-up or if you want to sport the #NoMakeupLook

Last week, I decided to join the hype and look for affordable lip tint at Watson. First thing that caught my eyes was the Ever Bilena lip tint that comes in a squeeze tube. I actually prefer something that comes with a wand. The girl from Ever Bilena lead me to the Careline bay and show me this Cheek and Lip tint. I was surprised that it only costs 90.00 PHP!

I am just not sure if they have other shade 'cause that one on their counter was only Berry Red. I left it for a few minutes and tried looking for something else 'cause the lady on Careline's bay said that they don't have tester for this one. I found one on Nichido but it costs more like 150.00PHP, can't remember. So I decided to get the Careline and see if this will work for me, it's just 90.00 PHP anyways. So why not?

The tube is somehow cute with 3mL of the product and it comes in a wand to make the application easier. Stock number, Batch Number and Manufacturing date were printed at the bottom of the tube as well.

The formula is too watery for me and not that pigmented. One swipe will not give you enough tint. But for 90.00PHP, who am I to complain? I have not tried using it as cheek tint 'cause I just think that it will not work for my oily skin.

PROS:
• Affordable
• Comes in a tube with a wand for easier application
• Available in most beauty bar including Watson
• 2-in-1 product


CONS:
• The formula is too watery for me
• Not pigmented enough
• Limited shades. This is the only shades available on their counter, I am not sure if they have other shades


WILL I RE-PURCHASE? No. See, my lips is dark due to smoking when I am still teenager and I think I need something that is pigmented enough.

WILL I RECOMMEND THIS? Yes, especially for those who's budget-consious.


Have you already tried this lip tint? Share me your thoughts!

10 Struggles Only Women with Oily Skin Understand

Thursday, 6 October 2016
I have already post my essential products for this skin type, you can check it HERE. Now let's talk about how it feels like having a curse to have an oily skin. Ready?

1. Mirror is your BFF. I just think that I couldn't live without mirror. Like srly, I need to check my face from time to time to see if it's already shiny.

2. You can't go outside the house without blotting paper and mattifying powder on your bag/purse.These two are ESSENTIAL. Period!

3. "You need to add moisturizer on your regimen." It actually makes no sense. Think about how much oil I produce in a day, is that not enough?

4. Sweat and oil combined. Please. No.

5. You can't count how many blotting paper you used in a whole day and how many time you've retouched. Like 10 sheets or so? >.<

6. Pores is the your problem. So you search for different ways/DIY to shrink your pores.

7. "Why are you not using eye shadow and eyeliner?" Oily face means oily lids.. Double kill!!

8. Faded and shiny eyebrows. ALWAYS.

9. You're always on search for mattifying powder/foundation that has good oil control properties. CHECK. CHECK. CHECK

10. You'll wake up with sooo much oil in your face that you can fry an egg on it.

Can you relate to my dilemma? Share me your oily skin essentials.

The Sunday Currently // 03

Sunday, 2 October 2016
The Sunday Currently

Hello everyone! It's Sunday again and it calls for TSC!! Yayy. How are you? My weekend is such a loser, I just slept the whole Saturday! I have sooo many agenda for that day that didn't happen because of my freaking headache. Ugh. So as usual, I promised to myself to be productive this day BUT i am not satisfied. Lol. I can say that I only accomplished 50% of my task. Uh. #LazyWeekendItIs

E A T I N G Martys Chicharon (Plain and Salted). I am so inlove with this and to tell you guys, this is the main reason why my brackets keep on breaking. Ha ha ha, I just can't stop and resist the taste of it. One of my fave!

F E E L I N G
sooo full. Yosh and I went to the nearby mall to have our dinner. We really can't decide what to eat and then we end up having unli-rice at Mang Inasal. This is soooo ridiculous!  Imagine, I have managed not to eat rice for a week and then in just a couple of minutes, I gave in and ate 1 1/2 rice. I am regretting this and I am not gonna do it again.

C R A V I N G
for graham cake of Lou or maybe anything sweet. After eating chicken and rice, I just need some sweet right now.

M O V I N G all of my pictures from my G7x to my phone for editing and hopefully I can upload them as well.

T H I N K I N G of having my hair fixed. I cut my hair few weeks ago and as usual I didn't like the result 'cause it made my hair thick. I think my hair is long enough now to have it fixed and maybe get a new hair color? Hmm.

S O R T I N G my clothes that needs to be washed a.k.a my unaccomplished task. Too bad, the Laundry shop across our street is closed during Sunday so I need to get it done and delivered it to them tomorrow morning.

So I think, that's the summary of my Sunday. How about you guys?


PS: I am now back on Twitter, tweet me @mnksrr!
