Food Trip: Vikings Luxury Buffet

One of the rising buffets in the metro is none other than the Vikings! Just by the name of it, I picture a humongous chunk of a dinosaur leg held by the massive hand of a Viking who just got home from sailing a massive water vessel! Whew! What a massive imagination! I know!
...and now I'm ready for a massive food tripping indulgence!
There are three buffet stations placed evenly apart that showcases extensive diversity of entrees; a wide variety of quality dishes from different cuisines.
This was my first time on Vikings, SM Megamall located at Mega Fashion Hall. The elegant dining area was just as huge as the buffet stations with modern and comfortable furnitures for best buffet experience.
I adore this abstract-striped ceiling. It's cool, modern and very artsy!
They offer a wide variety of food palates, from fresh seafood to juicy Angus steaks!
I love the DIY pizza! Loads of pineapple and bell pepper pizza please!
Of course I wouldn't pass my chance to serve babe his favorite ingredients on his pizza
- black olives and button mushrooms! :D
Another favorite of mine is the bottomless Shabu-Shabu where you could create and choose what ingredients to put. Seafood with lotsa corn please!
My dad's favorite Japanese sushis are here too, including the sashimi. I have to skip this though, sashimis' not a pregnant food.
I just wish they have more soup selection. I want creamy mushroom soup that night and all they have were a sour broth of Sinigang na Manok and Crab Soup.

You want to be a Viking for a day and eat like one? Well, first off, you have to get a reservation especially if you'll come with your entire clan, or entire class, or entire office floor. Get it? Queue on the waiting list is a pain in the butt especially on holidays plus if you will go there by batch and you are in the waiting list, do not expect to be placed on a long table! The staffs are very friendly, they would even suggest what you should get on your DIY palate, plus they will recommend what's best.

Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF 50

I've been using a lot of different brands and forms of sunblock but what my hands keep on reaching out lately was this Belo Sunexpert Transparent Mist in SPF50 PA+++.
I got this with a bunch of samples a couple of months back and it's oh so worth it!
Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF 50 is only Php449.75 for 100ml
Can you tell that I've been using this everyday? 
Especially when I'm busy and on the go, I just took a short shower and squirt this on face, neck and wherever the sun will hit me. It's very easy to use, unlike other sunblock's form, this feels like water. Non-greasy, super lightweight and easily absorbed by skin.

Empties: January to March 2015

Shine Moist Keratin Treatment - used this as a regular conditioner when I don't have enough me time which is usually every single day, but when I do, I use this after my shampoo. I blot my hair dry, apply this, and cover with a shower cap for a good 15 - 30 minutes. This product mainly contains keratin - a rich protein bond ingredient that helps nourish damaged hair without irritating sensitive scalp. This can also be used as a hot oil treatment to maximize softness.
Avon Naturals Body Refreshing Shower Gel in Green Papaya and Calamansi - citrus-y! That is how I would define the experience. Formulated with green papaya and calamansi extract, this refreshing perfect-for-summer shower gel leaves skin cleansed and "electrified". ;)
Eskinol Pimple Fighting Facial Deep Cleanser - with micro cleanse anti-bacterial formula that promises to dry pimples in 3 days and lightens pimple marks. This product contains Salicylic acid, tea tree extract and Vitamin B3. Used this after washing my face before bed, to remove makeup that the cleanser and makeup remover didn't get. Since this cleanser is alcohol base, I use a gentler toner from ZA Cosmetics just to balance the pH level of my skin before ending the night with my L'oreal Revitalift Night Cream.
Human Heart Nature Avocado and Gugo Bark Intensive Hair Mask - In my search for healthier hair, Human Heart Nature never disappoints. This hair mask is effective, no harmful chemicals and smells delicious!
Cycles Sensitive Baby Lotion in pink - it's fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and paraben-free.This lotion is fast-absorbing and non-greasy - just right for the humid summer weather. It also effectively moisturizes my baby's delicate skin, removing the scaly-looking dry skin while making it supple and elastic. Contains natural emollients that soothe dry itchy skin and prevents further drying. no parabens, sulfates, dyes and added fragrance that could irritate baby's sensitive and allergy-prone skin.
Zenutrients Green Tea Lotion - I used this as a hand cream on the go. I love the leafy scent. Non-sticky and fast absorbing. Will definitely get a full size of this. Thanks sample room for my sample bottle. <3
Belo Essentials Whitening Lotion - has skin vitamins which includes pentavitin that gently moisturize and nourish skin while enclosing active ingredients for whitening skin. I don't feel the sudden whitening effect but I'm satisfied on how it feels on my skin.
Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle - know more about this here. Thank you BDJ Box and EverydayMePh for my samples!
Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil - click here. If you wanna buy this safely online, check out Eliance Closet on FB and on IG.
Johnson's Baby Bath in Milk and Rice - this post will be incomplete without any Johnson's product. This helps complete skin nourishment for smoother and healthier skin not just for babies but for mommy's too! Definitely included on my snatch-from-the-cradle product list!
ABS Herbs Grace Pure Virgin Coconut Oil - you could swallow a spoonful if you are brave enough but as for me, I use this as a belly rub. Just after bath, my swollen tummy is thirsty for moisture and this oil (aside from my HHN Sunflower oil) is perfect. Fast-absorbing, it effectively make my skin more elastic and the light coconut scent is relaxing.
Avon Naturals Body Care Lightening Papaya and Soy Milk - promises 30 hours of moisture. It contains papaya fruit extract for skin balancing nutrients and hydrolyzed milk protein for conditioning the skin. I'm not convinced on its 30 hours moisturization but it leaves my skin a delicious sweet fruity floral scent.
Band-Aid Isoproryl Alcohol - it's disinfectant, antiseptic and with moisturizer? What more can I ask for? ;)
High Desert Clover Honey - pure, natural, unprocessed. This honey is perfect as sugar replacement, spread or as a hot concoction. I love using this as a therapy for my soar throat and to strengthen my lungs. What I do is I mix two spoonful of this in a hot water, I sometimes squirt a lemon or a calamansi whichever is available.
Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer in pink - the smell is divine, the product works wonder on my pores. Good base before foundation. What I hate about it is that I didn't, couldn't used up all the product because of its packaging.
Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair Conditioner - with patented micro moisture serum and fiber actives that reconstructs hair deep inside and prevents split ends and breakage. It promises of up to 9x less split ends. This product is for frizzy hair, and since mine has very fine line, my thin hair weighs heavy on my scalp and is literally sticking on my face.
High Desert Honeybee Pollen - has natural vanilla, honey and whey. The toddler liked it so much, I need to hide the bottle to make it last. More about the goodness in this on a separate post. Stay tuned!
Head & Shoulders Shampoo in Cool Menthol - all I could say is, this is perfect for summer. Wanna iced up your scalp and feel cleaned, refreshed and energized? Use this.
Celeteque DermoScience Sun Care in face and body sun defense cream - with SPF 50 and Broad Spectrum uva and uvb protection. Perfect for everyday use. Very versatile as it could be use for face and body. A bag resident for reapplication in the afternoon.
Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean - reduces bacteria build up by up to 90% for a superior deep clean. More about this here.
Aido Cosmetic lipstick in H - tangerine color has very good pigmentation, affordable, locally available, creamy, no weird scent, good for everyday use but the plastic packaging looks cheap and you have to reapply every now and then.
