Mark Talks A Lot

Hey there teddy bear! This is my boyfriend Mark. He is Filipino-Australian, NOT Japanese, Chinese or Korean. He was born and raised in Sydney and is extremely smart. He's currently finishing his law degree in University of Sydney and visits me sometimes here in the Philippines. We've known each other since we were teenagers and have been in an on and off relationship.  
Despite his eloquence and wit, he still can't speak Filipino properly but is really trying to. He's a bit of a troublemaker when around family and friends and would really talk a hell of a lot when we're alone. 

Here are some of our conversations:

Watching Star Wars Episode 5.

Millie: As a child, I was a bit scared of Yoda since I only knew him as this frog-like creature living in the swamp or something..

Mark: It's Dagobah..
Millie: Excuse me?
Mark: The system where he exiled himself is called "Dagobah".
Millie: Wait..what?? I mean.. how the hell would I know that????

Mark: It was mentioned several times! It was mentioned in Episode 3 and you see it in Episode 5 and 6... jeez! (unbelievable face)

Millie: THE VIRGIN FORCE IS STRONG IN THIS ONE. (ooh wait. hehe)

We were spending a quiet night talking about serious stuff when..

Mark: You know what has been bothering me..
Millie: Yeah?
Mark: I don't know.. I just don't get it..
Millie: What??
Mark: What does "scrubs" mean?
Millie: WHAT???

Mark: (serious face) You know, we know a "scrub" is a guy that can't get no love from her, hanging out the passenger side of his best friend's ride, trying to holler at the chick... but what exactly is he???


In my grandmother's house, Mark made a comment about my younger cousins who would go to my Lola's place but would not eat her uber delicious buffet cooked by her with love. Lola had to order pizza for those spoilt cousins and it has been going on for almost 10 years. Geez.

Dining table. Lunch. Lola, my family, Tito Mervin, Margie and her boyfriend Austin were there except my cousins.

Mark: Lola, I can't believe they would not eat your delicious meal!!!

Everyone laughs nervously.

Tito Mervin: Say that in Tagalog hahahah.

Mark: Para bang..yung kakain hindi pero masarap...

Millie: Say this hun.."Lola, hindi ako makapaniwalang hindi nila kinakain luto mo."

Mark : Totoo!! Parang sila....mga GAGO talaga!!!

Everyone (eyes wide) : MARK!!!!!!!!! 

Millie: Mark!!! Don't say that in front of Lola!! I did not teach him that! I swear!!

Mark's face: 

Breakfast a while ago...

Mark: Are those...ANTS on my cereal?
Millie: Yeah.. don't worry they're edible hehe.
Mark: Not really.... but their eggs are quite tasty!!
Millie: ......



A really wonderful friend texted me a very moving poem. Mark read it and said  it was really good.

Millie: Why don't you make poems for me anymore like you used to back in 2007?
Mark: Oh love but I have something better!!
Millie: Really? (excited)
Mark: hold on.. (gets his laptop and holds it like a gentleman, head up)
Millie: (kilig)

Mark: My Neck... my back...(stares at me behind the screen..smoldering eyes)
Millie: continue...
Mark: Lick my pussy and my crack (can't contain laughter)
Millie:  WTF????

Mark: First you gotta put your neck into it
Don't stop, just do, do it
Then you roll your tongue, from the crack back to the front
then suck it off til I shake and cum nigga
make sure I keep bustin nuts nigga
all over your face and stuff
slow head show me so much love 

Millie: OMG.

Mark: HAHAHAHAHAH sorry it's a song by this chick Khia and I don't know how the hell she 
could sing this with a straight face HAHAHAHAHA


Dining table during dinner.

Millie: Ma, I'm so acidic.. I need Nexium.
Mother: No, just eat lots of bananas!! Margie started eating bananas and her stomach's better now.

Millie: fffffiiiinnnnnne....
Mark: Yeah Millie... eat your banana.
Millie:  (looks at Mark)
Mark's face: 


I just wanted to share this. Hope it made you smile at least.
Thanks for reading!

Vivere Sky Lounge Review

 We had merienda at Vivere Sky Lounge or super late lunch (whatever you call it) last Valentine's Day. 

 It was not our first time in Vivere.  Back in 2007, Mark and I stayed there for almost a week and to think we only stayed in our room for 8 hours to sleep since I was still studying in UPLB and had to go back and forth Los Banos-Alabang. Crazy. When we look back at how much we spent, we almost always cry.

 Recently, I have been going to Sky Lounge with my girlfriends from my former company to have some "girl time".

 Anyway, hope you'll find this review helpful :)

Alabang doesn’t get many gourmet eateries, concept menus or independent resident chefs. More than a stone’s throw away from the CBD and ringed by profusion of chain restaurants and cafes, Alabang has been content with the title of ‘Lawrence of Suburbia.’

But this makes the gastronomic gems shine even brighter. Vivere Hotel’s Skylounge is an exception to the ho-hum drummery of local fare. On the top floor of the Hotel, with 360 degree views of Metro Manila, the Skylounge is a welcome respite from work, shopping, gym, children and other life stressors. 

The menu offers the conventional international mix expected of any 5-star hotel, with Napoli style pizzas, stir fry cashew nut tofu, Bimibap and Sea Bass. And whilst the menu really is jack-of-all trades, master of none, the full-sized servings, the excellent quality cuts of meat and the sheer breadth of choice in the menu make the food a real winner. When I want high quality western fare, I come here.

Hotel training guarantees excellent service from well trained staff. The floor staff are young, observant and professional, with a genuine sense of self-assurance typically absent in Manila. 

However, the real highlight is the view. At sunset, with cocktail in hand and a cool breeze blowing, Suburbia feels a long way away.

What: Vivere Sky Lounge
Where: Bridgeway cor Asean St Filinvest, Alabang, Muntinlupa, Luzon, 1780, Philippines

*Gorgeous views and wonderful ambience
*Extensive Menu
*Quality cuts of meat and ingredients 
*Generous alcohol servings, top-shelf booze and well-kept wine
*Excellent staff

*Menu is really jack of all trades, master of none
*Can be pricey if not in a group

MAC Rebel Lipstick with Lana Inspired Make-Up

thick brows, deep set eyes, thick eyeliner and either dark or very pale lips-the whole60s- 70s thing I imagine

I really tried to make the lines of the eyelid make up as prominent as possible to give it a more vintage 60s-70s vibe

Make-up used for this shoot:
(from left to right) Coastal Scents Neutral Palette, Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid Make Up, MAC concealer, Etude's Proof 10 Eye Primer, MAYBELLINE: powder,  Hyper Curl Volume Express Mascara, black eyeliner, MAC lipstick in Rebel

Item: MAC Rebel Lipstick
Price: 28 SGD since I bought mine in Singapore. Around P1,000 here in the Phils.
Color: Rebel (sort of dark red violet-ish) (Matte)


- Really pigmented 

- Matte but has a creamy non-drying texture which will lend a bit of sheen to your pout

-Looks great in photos
-Works better with fair skinned peeps
-very light, easy to carry
-Good if you want the sort of "1920s Charleston ready lips" with dark eyes
-Will also go well with a Gothic themed make up or punk rock ala Nancy Spungen

-I'm not quite sure if it works well with darker skin tones
-not really for everyone
-kind of hard to pull off since this is not really a "safe" color
-the name speaks for itself
