Event | Mono Restobar & After Office + Echelon Club

Davao bloggers was invid last October 17 to the newest restobar and club here in Davao namely Mono Club Restobar and Echelon respectively.



Several drinks and food was served, the waiting time is a bit long like 20-25 minutes but I assure you it's worth the wait.

They serve beers, both local and imported,  sparkling wine, spirits, whisky, tequila, energy drinks, wines both red and white, vodka, softdrinks, flaming shots, cocktails, margarita and daiquiri. I tried their cocktails and I must say it was good for those people who wants to have a hint of alcohol but can't drink a lot. They have a wide variety of food for as low as Php50. Most of their food are finger foods so you may want to eat dinner beforehand. 


One of their cocktails, Tequila Sunrise. 


They also serve flaming shots. Never tried this one before. 


Four cheese pizza was served next and it's one of the best cheese pizza I have ever tasted. The thin crust really complimented the pizza and you can really tell that the cheese was a high quality one.



Chili Fries! It was good but there's something missing. I think it needs more cheese?


Frozen Blue Margarita


The tuna maki is a must try specially for those who like spicy food. Personally I'm not a big fan of maki because sometimes I end up having an upset stomach if I ate too many but I think I'm willing to go thru that if it's this good. Even without any soy sauce or any condiments.



The food does not only look good but also tastes good. If you would ask me what was the best among I have tasted, I would really say the four cheese pizza.



After a lot of good drinks and food, we were lead to Club Echelon. I thought where was the club and it was located beside MonoBar. I was surprised because you can't hear any music from the outside unless you open the doors which I think is a good thing because not all people like blaring loud music while eating and catching up with a friend.


Echelon really has VIP service. The staff is polite and you really feel like a VIP with the service they give you. It's been so long since I have gone to clubs *thanks to my college degree* and Echelon exudes that vibe of being in abroad.

There's a flight of stairs going up and down the club so you may want to pack up backup flats if you feel like drinking your night away to prevent any injuries. 



Echelon is divided into 8 couches where you can sit but there are tables on the middle wherein you can party. The fee for occupying the couch may be a bit heavy on your pockets but it's consumable so basically it's like free.

I didn't stay long at Echelon but I enjoyed my time staying there.

This Halloween Echelon is having their 1st Halloween party with the theme Bond Girl. A good concept I must say since who wants to go to a club wearing a zombie costume?

Contact : 0917 713 4063 for more details or visit their Facebook page for more details. 


Club Echelon is open on  Fridays and Saturdays only and party starts at 9 while Mono is open 7 times a week and they open 6pm.

BTS : Hormone War MV HQ

Our Bangtan Boys released another MV 2 days ago entitled Hormone War. Unlike the previous Danger MV which was dark, sexy and serious, this one's more on the fun side but still with a dark concept.

Is it me or Bangtan never fails to make their dance moves look easy when we all know it's difficult as hell and they are always sync. It's one of the reasons why I love Bangtan.



The MV can really make you smile since they have cute dance moves *butt swings* and V's smile is like a Cheshire Cat. It's creepingly cute.

I find the dance comical yet it still has their own flavor. At first you'll find the video not so bangtan ish because it's not hardcore dance unlike their previous MVs it's more of acting but raping the replay button will let you realize their cute side.

Jungkook my 1st bias, looks so cute with his outfit to the extent I want to purchase a similar one.  He also smiles a lot in this MV. Smirks, smiles and comical facial expressions can be found throughout the MV so be warned my co Army.

The song is still a part of their recent album Dark & Wild so if you have not downloaded their album, you can download it here.

I'll stop right here and let you guys enjoy the MV in 720P in mp4 format


Comments, requests, spazzzing and reactions are welcomed. Ja ne~

A month ago, there was a sudden news that YG in collaboration with Yuehua is debuting a new boy group named UNIQ. It's a Chinese Korean group which consists of 3 Chinese members namely, Wong Yibo, Li Wenhan and Zhou Yixuan. While Korean members are Kim Sungjoo and Cao Chengyan. Their average age is 19 while their average height is 180cm.

UNIQ is read as unique and it also means unicorn. Unicorn because they symbolize pure spirit while unique because they want to embody the feeling of it.

They were trained for 19 hours a day in four years, so I expect a lot from this group considering the companies spent 100 million RMB as an investment to UNIQ.

Last night they released the MV of their debut song Falling in Love, I like the song like you can rape the play button but the MV does not really fit the song. I was expecting the MV to be mushy overloading sweetness kind of MV since the song is all about Falling in Love, yes it does have the mushy part but the dance part ruins it. So I prefer the Live version compared to the MV. But I have to spazz over the fact that they wore plaid ish school uniforms which makes them extra kawaii. Why is YG producing good looking / uber talented kids nowadays? Not that Big Bang is ugly ok? I love them to bits.

My current bias is their maknae Yi Bo, he's so freaking good looking like he came out from a manga and poof instant good looking Chinese bishie. I admit he caught my attention because he looks like Sehun maybe because of the blonde hair?

Still knowing their group so I have no more comments so enjoy their MVs and comments are appreciated. Ciao~!

Epik High : Born Hater MV + Shoebox Album Download

Hip Hop trio, Epik High is back with their 8th full length album entitled Shoebox. 

The album has a total of 12 tracks. They will be promoting 2 tracks; Wasteful Ending and Spoiler. It's one of the most anticipated album of Epik High because they featured artists like Taeyang of Big Bang, Younha,  Jay Park, Beenzino, Bobby and B.I. of iKon, Mino of WINNER and MYK to name a few. 
 
The music video is quirky, cute at the same time it screams SWAG. I find the MV unique because it only has 2 locations and those 2 locations have toilets.  I don't know if there's a deep meaning to it but I think it says I'm cool even though I do my business on the toilet, nothing can stop me from being swag. I also like that the featured artists have longer lines than the regular featured artists should have specially B.I. I must say he's the cutest janitor ever! Also when he was reading the adult material, his expression was priceless. Mino has swag, B.I is cute and Bobby was damn rich. Aside from the kids, Beenzino and Verbal Jint can also be seen at the video. It's rated 19 because they didn't censor any curse words which is rare in South Korea.

I can't wait to download the whole album and listen to it. I shall pick my fave song soon~

The MV was supposed to be released last night but it was delayed as a sign of respect towards the victims of the Pangyo Techno Valley Festival Tragedy.

Condolences to their family and friends.

Event | Abreeza Fashion Forum : Let's Talk About Skin



When I was in highschool, I searched for a sunblock with high SPF that could protect me from the C.A.T training under the heat of the sun and I stumbled upon VMV. It was and still is expensive compared to the regular sunblock but at that time it was the one who offers the highest SPF so I urged my mom to buy it for me. Luckily she agreed because she doesn't want me to return to my old tan color. It's not that I hate my skin color, it's just my parents are both fair and I'm a bit dark so I want to be fair. My mom was even asked if I was adopted because I didn't have the same skin color as them. Lol

After I finished the product years ago, I tell you your thousands are worth it because the product will take up years before you can finish them, I stopped using sunblock and moved to things with SPF like powder, BB cream and day creams.

During the talk, Miss Maria discussed how important sunblock is and how it protects your skin from damage. I was about to say sun damage but not only sun does damage your skin but also anything that produces light like fluorescent lamp, LED lights and such.


She discussed how their sunblock, Armada, caters to different skin types and how Armada is proven safe and effective. They do yearly tests to 6 different skin types to see if their products do work and do constant research to make their products better if possible. 

"No specific products for specific race because skin us skin. The weather is the only difference." - Miss Maria Cortez

I was really shocked when she said this because most if not all people really tell that these products work best on Asian skin and such, it was the 1st time I heard about this.

Also, she stressed that organic does not equate to hypoallergenic because some organic ingredients may cause allergies but hypoallergenic may cause rashes like redness but it may only mean an initial reaction so she suggested that you do the patch test first before buying it.

She stressed that skin regimen should be a part of our lifestyle. Don't recommend chemical suncreen to cancer patients and babies because cancer patients are maybe undergoing chemo therapy and applying chemical suncreen may do more damage to them. As for the babies, babies are not supposed to be exposed to sun for a long period of time. 

VMV does not promote skin whitening but skin brightening which means that you can achieve the lightest shade which can be found at your inner upper arm or any other part which is not so exposed but you can never be Nicole Kidman white.

Basically the talk is all about protecting your skin from sun damage and it can be summarized by the video below.

Thank you for the mini gift! Hopefully I can post a mini review for their gift for me. Also, I want to thank Abreeza and Davao Bloggers for inviting me.  
 

Sorry for the late update, I was and still is sick and can't write a proper post. Guess my mind's full of fever. Lol
