Banchetto Food Trip at Araneta Cubao


Let me share to you a dining experience that we had last Saturday (October 20). We went to Banchetto which was located at the open parking area between Telus and Farmers Garden General McArthur Avenue, Cuabo Quezon City. We decided to do a little "food trip" as my hubby and I were starving  . I'm still stuck at a 6 days working schedule and eating is the best way to relax and enjoy my weekend . This will be officially my first Banchetto experience 

Banchetto is actually an Italian work for "feast". This is the first overnight food fiesta that started at F. Ortigas Jr. Avenue (formerly known as Emerald Avenue) of Ortigas Center every 12 midnight until 11am of Saturday. This happened once a week were a portion of the road is closed and tents are setup for initially 14 vendors selling various selection of delicious food. They became a hype and now there are other Banchetto locations where people can experience great food

I was not able to take pictures of the actual place where Banchetto was held. We decided to bring home the food that we bought so we can eat comfortably

Chicken Kebab from Asian Grill..I hope I got the name right  
This cost 95 pesos including the rice, you'll get a 5 pesos off if you opt to get the BBQ only.

I don't know where my hubby bought this Crab with Sweet 'n Chili sauce, this was around 100 pesos I guess...

Ziggy's Brock Monster Burger only for 150 pesos  
I can't get enough of this double patty burger. I didn't really know at first on how 
I would start eating it  

 We are getting ready for another Banchetto experience as soon as they get back here at Cubao. You may also check their Facebook page Banchetto for venue updates.  

How about you..when did you last went to a food bazaar? 
~See you on my next post 

PR: Etude House I Need You, Green Tea! Mask Sheet


How's your week goin'? I was not able to rest well as I've worked 6 days last week and only had 1 day to rest But I did not let the weekend pass without making up with hubby. I make sure that I'd be able to do something to make him smile

Anyways..let's get back to business hehe! Way back my payday I bought 2 sheets of  I Need You, Green Tea! Mask Sheet from Etude House. I've never used a mask sheet before so this is my first time as well. I chose the Green Tea mask because it claims to have an extract that soothes and comforts stressed and fatigued skin...sounds perfect for workaholic boys and gals  
 Green Tea Mask Sheet
Quantity: 1 sheet 
Volume: 23mL (0.77 fl. oz.) 
Price: 58 pesos each sheet 
Made in Korea   

Green Tea Mask Sheet Etude House
 I hope the picture is clear enough so you could see the directions for use and ingredients  

Green Tea Mask Sheet Etude House
 The mask sheet is big enough to fit on our face...see you can even see Rin-chan outside  

Were like this for 30 minutes...sweetnesss overload!   

What I like about it .. 
  • The mask is big enough to fit your whole face
  • It's inexpensive
  • Hint of green tea smell 
  • My face feels light and refreshed while the mask is on

What I don't like about it ..
  • The mask is dripping wet when taken out of the package 
  • Some solution on the mask keeps on dripping from the edges while the mask is on my face
  • My face felt kinda sticky after removing the mask
  • After the leftover solution dried up on my face felt kinda dried to
Will I try it again?  
Yes and I'll even try different brands. I didn't really know what to expect on facial mask and the label said you would need to use mask like 2-3 times a week to see its effect. So I'll venture to a different type of facial mask next time. ~Urgh..I just remembered I still have some mask given to me on my birthday

What facial mask can you recommend for me to use? 
~Well then..see you all on my next post

Payday Haul


Payday has never been soooo sweeeeet I just want to share to you some of the stuff that I bought. There's really nothing really glamorous on these things, just a bunch of random purchase. 

Maybelline Babylips, Milcu, Glam Works
Maybelline Babylips Lip Balm - It has exclusive lip renew formula with SPF 20 and pretty much moisturizes the lips in an instant. This variation that I bought is the Relieving Menthol, it smells like peppermint. If you remember on my other post I didn't like a mentholated lip balm but I'm glad that Maybelline's lip balm's menthol is not overrated. 

Milcu Underarm and Foot Deodorant Powder - Powder formula of Potassium alum deodorant that helps prevent unpleasant odor both on the underarm and foot. I've already tried a deodorant that keeps bad odor away and whitens the underarm..but its quite expensive. I have to do some cross-cutting on my budget so I have to fall back on Milcu. It's very effective and its does not darkens that underarm nor causes discoloration and on top of that its inexpensive. 

Glam Works Make Up Remover Cleansing Wipes - Removes traces of dirt, oil and make-up. This is very ideal when your traveling and you just want quick cleaning on your face to remove make-up. And this is just the perfect thing that I need when I'm feeling suppper lazy on cleaning my face by the end of the day.

Clean Dew Lemon Seed Foam Cleanser by Tony Moly
Tony Moly's Clean Dew Lemon Seed Foam Cleanser - I'm due to buy a new facial cleanser by next month. My friend Rin-chan wanted to have the free BB cleanser but she needs to have a minimum purchase of 1,500 pesos. She has nothing left to buy so she asked me to help her out, so as a necessity I purchased this earlier than my due date

Lip and Eye Remover Etude House
Etude House Lip & Eye Remover - 'Nuff said with the scary name of this make-up remover , this is my third bottle. I have been loyal on using this product since I first tried it, one of the best product Etude House has made. 

Facial Mask by Etude House
Etude House Green Tea and Aloe Moistfull Facial Mask - Tooo much stress has been killing me and my hubby so I would like to have a bonding moment with him. He has been curious on facial mask and keeps on asking me if he can try it, so we'll have a mini facial event on the weekend

J. Co Donuts & Coffee
J. Co Donuts - I have been hearing a lot about this donuts that is why I decided to try it. I love the variation of flavor and the softness of the dough. I didn't mind standing in the line for more than 20 minutes just to buy this box of mouth watering donuts

~So I guess that's it! Happy weekend...see you on my next post
