Teaberi, Our Lady of Manaoag

Last friday me and my workmates went to mass at St. Andrews Church and to visit Our Lady of Manaoag. But before that, we just had late merienda first and ordered Mexicali through delivery. And the best part, we were able to try a new Milk Tea discovery located at the A.Venue Mall in Makati as well. Our office is just walking distance from the place and you won't have a hard time looking for it since it's located outside the mall.

The place looks so inviting and cozy even though the small space is just their counter and a few dining chairs.

 I also love the interior design of their dining area. Their flooring is made of grass. I'm just not sure if it's real or synthetic. =)
 I ordered Green Tea with Cheese Froth, sounds familiar right? Most of their beverages have similarities with Happy Lemon. Well almost all Milk Tea stores have the same kind of drinks but i haven't tasted the Happy Lemon version of this yet. Since this is one of their recommendations, why not experiment and give this a try?
My verdict: the cheese froth of this drink is thicker than Happy Lemon even though i ordered a regular size. But i feel that this green tea is too strong for me, it tastes so bitter as the cheese froth lessens. I will order the same version at Happy Lemon next time to see the difference.

L to R: Green Tea w/cheese froth, Passion Fruit Green Tea, Green Apple Green Tea, Black Tea w/cheese froth.
 All four of us ordered recommendation drinks. Black Tea w/cheese froth has a cinnamon flavor on top of the drink. And the two green tea drinks in between are like fruit juices. But still there is a distinctive tea aftertaste and good thing we requested normal sugar. The cool thing with passion fruit and green apple is that you can add a free topping and the barista recommended putting Bubble pop to it. Bubble pop looks so similar with sago but with a sweet liquid filling inside once you chew it. It's so fun eating this topping and we had a good laugh after because of our curiosity with it. I'm definitely going to order drinks with bubble pop toppings next time.

 Then we ended our day by going to mass at St. Andrews Church in Kalayaan Avenue. It's a good thing we've been given the chance to see Our Lady of Manaoag here in this church and it's also accessible to our office. The statue originally came from Pangasinan and they're taking rounds of visit within luzon. I heard that they will transfer her next in Batangas and she will only stay here until October 9. The church is not that crowded when we arrived and we didn't have a hard time taking pictures and holding her wardrobe at the back of the statue to pray. I also got blessed rosaries after the mass as their giveaway.

Hope you all have a blessed and fun weekend ;)

Week Happenings: NOTW, Happy Lemon, NYX

Hi! Just want to share some interesting events for me this week:

My Thai, Venice Piazza
Lunch with Family last Sunday (Sept.25) at this Thai Restaurant. Love their appetizer, noodles and thai iced milk tea. Yum!
Appetizer, forgot the name =)

Thai milk tea

Love their rice!

NOTW: Funky leopard nails. Base polish is San San in Sandy Brown. Pink and lime green spots are from Caress. And i used sassy black nail polish to line the spots for a leopard design.

Friday Night Out: Me and my workmates went to Rockwell for a movie and to visit again our new favorite hang-out..Happy Lemon! Milk teas are getting popular already here but this is still my favorite among the rest. We ordered different beverages for the 4 of us. Love to drink this when you're enjoying a nice chat with your colleagues.

From L to R: Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese. Lemon Pineapple with Nata de Coco (with add on pearl sago). Deluxe Cocoa with Pudding and Pearl sago. Crispy Cocoa Milk Tea with Brown Sugar Jelly.

NYX Lippies: I love NYX! although looking for their cosmetics is a hassle since some stores inside malls sell these stuffs more expensive than when you order them on facebook and multiply. Bought the soft matte lip creams at Somera Glorietta 5 for Php390. While i bought the matte lipsticks at Digital Traincase' booth inside megatrade hall (weekend sale at Megamall) for Php300. If you want to try these make-up it's best to buy them at Digital Traincase' multiply site or through the owner's ortigas store.

These lippies are so amazing. All of them are pigmented and vibrant on my lips. Their matte lipsticks are easier to apply than my EB matte lipsticks. You just have to apply lip balm first to avoid having chapped lips after. Definitely a great find and i want to get their other shades.

Swatches L to R: NYX matte lipstick in Angel and Strawberry Daiquiri. NYX soft matte lip cream in Addis Ababa and Antwerp.

Hope you had a Happy Weekend!
