A lot of people are now switching to organic products to prevent harmful chemicals. Most people would go to Healthy Options for more organic alternatives but their products could be a bit pricey. Thanks to Sesou Nature Source going 'green' is now affordable.
They also have organic products for your home including goo remover, laundry soaps and dish-washing soaps.
They have a wide range of organic soaps for the body including unusual ingredients like bearberry and seaweed. I got curious with the Dreadlocks Hair Wax. I wonder how it will be used (not that I'm thinking of having dreads, just imagining =P)

Lots of hair products too including the famous argan oil which have a lot of benefits for our hair.

I dropped by Sesou to get a new conditioner because my Oryspa bottles are now empty.
I noticed that organic conditioners are easier to rinse and I have less falling hair. 
I was so busy sniffing bottles left and right as I was looking for the conditioner that would treat my dry hair with a good and fresh scent.

I bought the Aloe Vera Conditioner from Z.E.N. for P250.00 which is a bit pricey compared to the usual conditioners but I think it's a good price to keep my hair healthy. This is a late post and I'm almost done with my bottle. I loved that it's not drying and a small amount could go a long way. It's easier to rinse which saves up bathroom time. On application, I usually concentrate more on the tips and use a wide-toothed comb to remove the tangles and to spread the conditioner evenly. But I noticed with this conditioner, the comb is not necessary. This is definitely a good buy.

Check out Sesou's FB page or Multiply page for their list of branches and to know more about their products. 


For a quick-fix of your favorite Mexican dishes, drop by Hermanos Taco Shop. They have the best tacos and mouth-watering quesadilla. =P 

I tried one of their platters [left] which includes: 6 pieces Rolled Tacos (P 285) which is made of crunchy taquitos topped with shredded lettuce and made extra rich with cheese sauce and sour cream, pico de gallo, chips and salsa. I'm not a big fan of taquitos because I prefer it thinner. I hope they used tortilla taco shells instead. Also, I think tortilla is more crunchy especially when it's hot,
I loved the12-inch/ 4 slices of Cheese Quesadillas (P 190) - which is a thick chunk of flour quesadilla flooded by melted jack and cheese within served with sour cream, and salsa. It was great with cheese alone but I'll try their other chicken quesadilla next time.
Of course I wouldn't miss their famous Carne Asada Chips (nachos) P 195. Which is #1 at Spot's List of Best nachos. They were very generous with the toppings and I loved it. The beef was also cooked perfectly giving it more flavor.

Lots of salsa for my quesadilla =)
2 thumbs up for a great snack which is actually good for 2.
 Visit Hermanos Taco Shop at at #27 Granada Avenue QC or at their new branch at Molita Mall, Alabang.

A gentle reminder for men not to use our shampoo and get their own haha. They don't need gorgeous and bouncy hair -- or do they? =P

Yap-Sandiego House

In my last trip to Cebu (which I only had 2days) I visited a lot of historical landmarks such as Fort San Pedro, Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino and Magellan's cross .
One of my favorite spots is this old house near the Cebu Heritage Monument which is known as the Yap-Sandiego House. We all know that Cebu has now progressed to a very modern city but the owner of this house maintained this home just how it was built in 17th century.

I’m sure you’ve seen old houses in history books or in movies but not the furniture and interiors in full detail. I was amazed to see how they were able to maintain the old structures and that they still have century old pieces.
Just like in our own home, they also have this open lanai in the middle of the house.
Since Christianity was introduced in Cebu, religious statues and altars became an important part of every home.
You will notice in their furniture how carved wood was a prevalent design. Also, back in the days when there were no faucets or water outlets, they kept big jars and bottles to store their water which I think conserved more energy.

They have huge chairs by the window and they even have a harp.They have huge windows to get more light and air.

They kept the old design of the "Tisa" clay roof and Balayong wood. Since it was raining that time, I think I didn't see any leaks so I think the one who restored it did a great job.
They have "sungka" which is a known game back in the days (and which I'm terrible at). Their lamps and lightings were all huge and fragile.
This is their beautiful garden on one rainy Saturday morning.

My ghostly image in their old mirror with the sun's reflection.Good thing I'm not wearing white=P
Their vintage dining set is still in place.
I was surprised that most of their religious statues were also in the bedroom. Since it was quite dark inside the room, this creeped me out a little bit. =P

I had a few moments to reminisce, relax and breathe while waiting for the rain to subside.
This ancestral house is located at 155-Lopez Jaena corner Mabini Street, Parian District in Cebu, Phil.
Watch out since I'll be posting my favorite Cebu food stops soon =)

The Brutally Honest Personality Test

I tried the Brutally Honest Personality Test the other day since my friend Chin and I were talking about personality tests and how accurate it is. This is the result: -- I'm a Pushover. =P

Photo credit:

"Hah. Nice one. How does it feel to know that you're barely unique? Of all the personality types you could have had, you ended up with the most common in all of America. In a group of 100 Americans, 12.8 of them will be just like you.

I bet you feel sorry for that one person missing 20% of his body. I bet you want to help him out, don't you? Cause that's what you like to do, isn't it? Help people. You don't want to save the world. You just want to help people out.

Sound pretty good so far? Sorry, but you're just plain pathetic. You let people walk all over you all the time, because everyone knows that you just can't say "no." When you get time, email me your contact details. It's always good to know where I can find another helping hand.

What the hell is your problem? GET A LIFE! Stop cleaning other people's houses and go out and have a bit of fun every now and then. Sure, you feel responsible for doing what needs to be done, but sometimes it's just not you who needs to do it.

You're dependable, predictable and practicaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...

Whoops, that was me falling asleep on the keyboard. You're just not the most fun person. I wouldn't worry too much about it. You can go hang out with your other 12.8 mates, helping out at the soup kitchen together. Woohoo!"

Hmm, it really sounded harsh and quite true actually. I already prepped myself for insulting words and mean confirmations on how boring I am so I wasn't really affected. By the way, the 'pushover' is just their brutal term for the ISFJ (Introverted-Sensing-Feeling-Judging) personality. It felt like talking to a really frank friend on what they think about me. If you know you're too sensitive for mean words, don't take this. =P 
Would you try this test? Tell me what it says about you and if you find it quite true =P Happy Weekend!
