Cusina de Sabang 602

Most Filipinos alot weekend for family. I am sure you know the term "Sunday is Family Day". 

Normally, after hearing the sunday Mass, next is roaming around the city or going to the mall then dinner or lunch after.

Last Sunday, it is a special day for us. We will be celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday. It is supposed to be a suprised celebration but I guess she got a hint when she saw the cake that my brother-in law is carrying.

After attending mass, we end up going to Cusina de Sabang. Good thing we arrived just before the sun sets. We were able to see the beauty and serenity of the place.

The place is perfect for family or group gatherings and also for those who are looking for a quiet place to dine with lake view as well. Cusina de Sabang is located at Brgy. Concepcion, San Pablo City. The lake that you will get to see is the Bunot Lake, one of the Seven Lakes in San Pablo City.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to capture the foods as I run out of battery. I love their Kare-Kare and Crispy Pata!

This is highly recommended however, make sure you have your own car since its a little far from the main road. Don't worry the road is cemented and accessible.

The food is delicious and orders are
Mostly good for sharing. Here are the prices for reference.

Indeed a great way to spend the weekend with my loves, almost complete. Just missing my hubby who is still onboard. Hopefully, very very soon, we will be complete again. 😊

Happiest Birthday to the Queen of Mendoza Family! 

Rockin' Hairstyles

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post however, all opinions are mine.

I know we girls always want to look great especially whenever there are special occassions. 

Doing our hair to make it look beautiful most of the time involves a lot of time for preparation. May it be whether we did it on our own or going on the salon to have some hair professionals do the work for us.

Wearing wigs to spice up our hairstyles is a great idea. Giving some twist from your short hair to instant long curly hair or whatever you want it to be. Of course without looking very awkward instead looking fabulous and as if its your normal hair.

I know from time to time, we want to look different and most of the time, our hairstyle has a great impact on it. Indeed, our hair is called as our crowning glory.

Since are hair don't grow up easily, we tend to wear wigs depending on our outfits and fashion ideas. I have here some of the hairstyles I found online that I want wear soon. For now, I am eyeing to have the curly and weavy hairstyle.

  • Sensationnel Kanubia Easy 5 Brazilian Weave – Natural Curly


  • Bobbi Boss Lace Front Wig – MLF-156 Hailey

I want to have such curly hair but I don't want to make it permanent. Ironing and setting up my hair with this kind of look is very time consuming. Wearing this is instant and I can easily wear whenever I want to. Very nice isn't it?


Bobbi Boss Lace Front Wig – MLF-113 Shannon | COLOR: TT1B/BL.ST
  • Bobbi Boss Lace Front Wig – MLF-113 Shannon

I am excited to try these very beautiful and shiny wigs. What a way to change your looks in an instant.

For those who are joining Cosplays (costume plays) will definitely love this variety of hairstyles.

There are so different hairstyles you can choose from wigs online. Now, you can always have the look that you wanna have!

Sports Barbers Mall of Asia Branch is now open!

Being pampered is not only for girls and this is what Sports Barber is all about. Giving out the traditional hair-cut with a twist.

With pompadours on the rise, man-buns making its way on the street, perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance, it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.  

But while men will admittedly make more effort by way of aesthetics, the process of getting the right look still prompts them to demand the simplicity and straightforwardness of traditional barbershops. 

“Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments. The same can’t be said for men—most guys expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explains Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Sports Barbers Barbershop. 

This gave way to a new breed of barbershops—one that delivers the kind of service that they expect; one that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers. 

With 13 branches all over the country, Sports Barbers 
recreates the traditional concept of your go-to 
neighbourhood barbershop and offers a destination that is modern and stylish yet stays true to what men have been used to. 

Its ambience and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humour and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper and effortlessly good as they 
can be. 

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honoured techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends Amaro. 

Sports Barbers Barbershop has locations in UP Town 
Center, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Clark, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod and its newest branch in SM Mall of Asia.

BaBas Mediterranean Grill, San Pablo City

The new addition to my Where to Eat in San Pablo City, Laguna compilation is a Greek inspired restaurant.

I know many of us dreams of visiting Santorini in Greece as well. There are many resorts that were Santorini inspired too.

I have tried some Greek/Mediterranean cuisine in Cyma and Cafe Mediterranean and I am enticed knowing that there is something like that already in San Pablo City.

Panoramic View

BaBas Mediterranean Grill is one of the newest food joint in San Pablo City. I think they are just operating for around five-six months.

I always want to try it whenever I passed by but never got the chance to try since most of the time the parking is full. 

I love how the simplicity of the design and how they were able to nail the greek ambiance.

There is an open space and a close room which is made from a small container (used for cargo transport). Second floor is also available to accommodate more customers.

Look how simple and creative the owners are. A rough wall turned to a nice white-painted wall which brought the open area to life. Indeed one of the iconic spots in BaBas.

I Encouraged my friend to pose for me.

The closed room and stairs leading to the second floor. 

Kebab Platter, Pink Lemonade and Yogurt Shake

If you prefer to eat in the closed room, you need to remove your footwear and make an Indian sit. Two tables are available inside.

Overall, I enjoyed the food we ate. I will definitely be back.

Lastly, I enjoyed the time conversing with Declan, the owner's eldest son and also learned with Mr. Joel Macatangay, the owner that soon BaBas will be airconditioned to better serve its customers.

5 Tips To Keep Your Home Safe From Criminals 

Your house is your kingdom, where you feel secure and ensured. That's why a break-in is costly, not only on a financial level but on a personal level as well. It is, in short, a violation of your personal space it can be a struggle to get over the feeling that their home has been violated. Being robbed is a nightmare. And it's not just people who live in "bad neighborhoods" that are at risk -- a false sense of security can leave anyone vulnerable. Criminals look for easy targets.

Here are 5 tips to make sure you're not one of them:

Lock Your Box

Even if your house is secure, your mailbox can be an easy target, especially if it's right on the road. Identity theft is a growing problem, and your mail is an easy place to get all your personal info -- phone numbers, account numbers, and even your social security number. If you don't already have a locking mailbox, consider investing in one. There's a small slot where the postman can insert your mail, but you hold the key.

It's always a good idea to have a spare key available in case of emergencies, but hiding that key on your property is risky

Criminals know all of the usual hiding spots -- fake rocks, flower pots, under doormats and above door frames. It's best to give your additional keys to a trusted neighbor or friend who lives nearby. If that's not an option, be sure to conceal the keys in an unusual spot that's not at the front of your house. Preferably, where no one can see you getting the keys.

Keep your landscaping neat and trimmed

The last thing you want is to make it easier for a criminal to hide when attempting to break in, so eliminate any potential places for criminals and intruders to lurk. Be sure to keep large bushes and shrubs away from windows. 

Get to know your neighbors

A ready and dynamic neighborhood can be exceptionally powerful in limiting criminal movement. Check whether your group has an area watch gathering and get included. It's an incredible approach to do your part and become more acquainted with your neighbors all the while. On the off chance that such a gathering doesn't exist, consider heading up the exertion.

Keep all doors and windows closed and locked at all times

It’s worth investing in a quality padlock for each outside entrance, even if you only lock it at night. It is advisable to ask the help of an emergency locksmith service provider about this.

Remember; don’t hide a duplicate key under the doormat or a plant pot. That’s exactly where a thief would look without hesitation. Ensure the greater part of your entryways is strong center instead of empty. Simply give a bit of hardwood a decent kick and you'll value the distinction. For an additional layer of security, add a metal screen entryway or a sea tempest way, which offers break-confirmation glass, before your entrance entryway.

Keep your home safe as early as now before it’s too late. You will never know what will happen in the future.
