Sango! The Burger Master

Last Sunday, Mics and I went to Shangri-La with plans to watch Green Hornet. Unfortunately, with the unforeseen traffic along EDSA(and on a Sunday!), we got to the mall a few minutes too late to watch the movie at the 4pm-ish time slot. My stomach started grumbling so M said that we should stop for a snack before going around.

Yakiniku Rice Burger with Large Fries
 We both chose to order the Yakiniku Rice Burger, P145. I've had it before, and M was rather jealous so he copied me. While I only had the burger, M had the works. He ordered Large Fries, P75, which are thick cut potato fries with skin on. There was nothing special about it, just fresh, hot potato, lightly salted. This was served with Del Monte tomato ketchup packets. We haven't tried the Master Fries yet, and I'm kinda torn because it looks kinda good but the price point is just too high. Will have to try it one of these days.

Burger, Fries and Large Strawberry Soda
M liked the Strawberry Soda, P70, the first time he tried it at the Rockwell Branch. For some reason, I wasn't drawn to it the first time, so I didn't order any soda. I just sipped a bit from M's drink and nursed my water for the rest of my meal. The Strawberry Soda is a bright pink and slushy, since instead of ice cubes, it's served with crushed ice. The slice of lemon is a nice touch, as it adds some fresh flavor to the otherwise too-sweet drink.

What the other side of the Yakiniku Rice Burger looks like, after two bites. Bummer.
Now, onto the burger. Yakiniku meat and fresh lettuce leaves sandwiched in between two hot rice buns, slathered with flavorful sauce. Yummy? Sure is! A few gripes, though. Although the top side of the burger looks bountiful, turn it over and the bottom part has no lettuce and lacks meat. I now eat it upside down, because otherwise, I'd be left with just rice and some sauce. The yakiniku meat is cut into huge pieces. I say huge, because when you take a bite, a large portion of meat gets pulled out too. Eat it right side up and the last few bites you'll get will be of rice and rice alone. I wish they would cut it up into smaller bites. Maybe I should request that next time.

All in all, I like Sango! I really like the Yakiniku Rice Burger, since it's so flavorful and delicious. Needless to say, I'll be back.  Next time, I might try a different burger or one of their donburi. 

Sango! The Burger Master is located at the 6th level of Shangri-La Mall. There are branches in Rockwell and Creekside Mall as well. 

Etude House Cloud Bubble Oil Review

I've been to the Etude House at Megamall countless times, and I was never greeted a customary, "Hello, Princess!". I decided to try out the Etude at North EDSA, and I'm glad I did. Not only was it bigger, but the SA's actually greeted me upon my entrance. The store itself was wide, and there was plenty room to look around. There were many more product displays, and trying things out was a breeze because the items were spaced out nicely and the testers weren't as "used" and the ones in Megamall. The SA who followed me around wasn't annoying and was helpful in telling me about the products and pointing out ones that were worth trying out too. :)

A new product that caught my eye was the Cloud Bubble Oil.  I was supposed to get the Cleansing Dream Cleansing Oil since I wanted a cheap alternative to my Shu Uemura Light Cleansing Oil for daily use. But he SA told me that it was a new arrival in the Philippines. The shiny sticker that said NEW convinced me too. So I tossed this into my basket instead. 

Nice and new: plastic wrapped for our protection
Something I love is that the whole bottle is plastic wrapped. It's like saying, "Hey, I'm brand new just for you!". At least we can be sure that the product we are purchasing has not been used by others before us. The packaging is a nice pump bottle that foams up the cleansing oil when you pump it out. You turn the nozzle to the front to be able to pump out the foam. It's a very different way of delivering cleansing oil; instead of getting liquid you get a nice foam instead. This unique method is really fun and it helps encourage me to use it regularly. It's also nice that when you turn the nozzle to the left of the bottle, it becomes impossible to pump it out. No need to pump, then turn, like the Shu bottle I think. If you know what I mean. The bottle is also clear, which allows you to see how much product you still have left.

A quarter of a pump, to see what it looks like!
Another point to consider is the scent. I personally don't mind the smell of the Cloud Bubble Oil, but others may consider it too strong for their liking, or may not like it at all. So I suggest you go try out the testers to see if you're okay with the rather strong scent. The texture of the foamed up cleansing oil is bubbly and airy, much like the Bath and Body Works foaming hand wash or any typical foam. It is a bit oily when you rub it though, since it is a cleansing oil after all. 

To use, pump out the desired amount of cleaning oil foam and gently rub the Cloud Bubble Oil onto your face. Once the foam dissipates, you've got a nice layer of light cleansing oil on. The english instructions on the bottom of the bottle simply tells you to rinse it off after, but I prefer to emulsify first before rinsing. I tried both ways, emulsify then rinse and just rinsing. Emulsifying the Cloud Bubble Oil made my skin feel a bit cleaner afterwards. It's very light, and mild as the bottle says, and it rinses off completely leaving my skin feeling clean and soft afterwards. Lastly, don't turn over the bottle too much, specially after using it! I was reading the little instruction sticker on the bottom and I noticed that I spilled a few drops.

After a few days of road testing, I can say that my skin feels a tiny bit softer and smoother, than before I added this to my skin care routine. The product delivery has me hooked and the fact that the packaging can be reused is a big plus for me. When I'm done with this bottle, I'll simply unscrew the pump, clean it out, then fill it up with diluted hand wash or face wash. How cool is that? So I believe that I'll repurchase this once I run out.

Etude House Cloud Bubble Oil comes in a 200ml pump bottle and is available at all Etude House stores for a bit over P400. (I can't remember the exact amount, I'll fix this when I do)

Also, I have this new product I just bought last weekend. It says new, and when I ran a Google search on it, not much came out. So I suppose it's rather new. I hope to review it when my camera paraphernalia, or at least my USB cable, decide to show up. I'm excited about it! :)

Happy Birthday Coco!

Milo, me and Coco
It's Coco's birthday today, and she just turned two! I have nothing much to say except that she's such a sweet, sweet thing. I love you baby Coco! Happy birthday!

Unintentional Hiatus

The reason for the accidental delay in the posting of my HK haul photos and other whatnot posts is because the black pouch containing both the camera charger and the USB cable is missing. I remember packing it for the trip, but I think my dad took it out and I don't know where it is now. I've posted other photos I took using the camera of my mobile phone, so I'll have to make do with that now. I hope I can find it soon, I'm really falling behind with my posts :\
