Madonna The Rebel Heart Tour Is Coming To Manila

Madonna in Manila

The Queen of Pop is coming to Manila! Yes folks, it's confirmed, she'll be in PH for a ONE NIGHT concert as part of her Rebel Heart Tour.  

My reaction?  WHYYYYYYY!!!???  I mean, why not now that I am here!?  Sniff.  I can book another  ticket to fly back in February but what if our plans push through this year?  If that happens, I won't be able to travel. Of course our plans are MORE IMPORTANT but to see Madonna in flesh performing her ultimate hits is also a dream of mine. Oh well, I guess I will just have to see her in another time.  Hopefully she'll come back to UAE soon.  If that happens, I'll be the first one to buy a ticket. And a VIP ticket at that! Choz!

Her much-awaited concert will be held at the 12000-seater MOA Arena in Pasay City  on February 24, 2016. OMG, just thinking about being able to attend is already giving me goosebumps. I am imagining that a lot of people attending will be in their best Madonna costumes.  Heck, I would do too! Oh, if only. (sigh)

There are a lot of "rumours" circulating that VIP tickets are priced at almost Php50k, but that is yet to be confirmed as tickets will only go on sale starting this Sunday, July 26 at 10AM through SM ticket outlets.  

Tickets on Pre-sale:
For members of Icon, Madonna's official fans club, they will receive a special coded to access the pre-sale tomorrow, July 21 at 10AM.   
For citi cardholders, you are also eligible for a pre-sale starting July 22 at 10AM until July 23.

(Sigh) I really am broken-hearted. Korny man, but my god, I grew up listening to Madonna's songs. I think I still I know most of her songs by heart, yung mga "classics" ha!? My favorite? Shempre pa, the walang kamatayang "Material Girl," "Papa Don't Preach," "Like A Virgin," "Crazy for you," etc. Lost na ako when it comes to her recent recordings.   She was my Mom's favorite. Was, since she likes Shakira more daw ngayon. Me? I'll forever be a Madonna fan.  Oh yes, pagdating kay Madonna, may Forever!

So, are you attending? And if you are, care to share what your outfit will be? Ako (if only), I'll come in an outfit like this one:

Soap & Glory Bath and Body Products

It's a Monday once again!  It was a long weekend here in PH so I hope you guys had a great weekend.  'twas the same thing back in UAE but I'm not sure if they are back to work today.  Whatever the case may be, I just hope that the extra days off were enough to re-energize you all for another week of working.  Just stay focused, happy and keep on smiling!

Today I'll be sharing with you some of the Soap and Glory products that I got a while back. It's not the first time I come across this brand. The first product that I got to use from Soap & Glory was the pore detox mask that I bought when I was in Dubai for the first time, back in 2012.  I have used it for quite some time and I believe I was able to finish a tube but haven't really gotten into posting a review (my bad!)  So now, I'll be including a bit of review for each of the product that I got as a sample.  Just so I won't forget, like the first time.

Soap & Glory Hand Food
Soap & Glory Hand Food
I can't say if this is indeed the most astonishing hand cream ever, but what I can say is that this is the most delicious-smelling hand cream I've ever tried. This contains shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow. Yes, marshmallow! So just imagine how good this smells.  It feels so luxurious but it doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy and sticky.

How To Cook Pork Binagoongan (with Eggplant)

 Happy Sunday, my loves!  Linggo na at hindi pa din ako nakakaligo, har har har.  TMI, I know. Don't worry, I sponge bath twice a day and I don't have BO to begin with, so keribels! Hehehe! Pero honestly, I miss taking a bath, the normal way!  But as per my doctor, dehins pa pede. I'll be seeing him on Thursday for my checkup and hopefully, he'll give me a go-signal after.  Kaya I really wish that my wound heals fast. For that, I drink a lot of pineapple juice and I don't move as much. I also didn't insist on getting those waterproof plasters that I can wrap my wound with just to be able to take a bath since he said there are some cases na nagkakamoist yung wound.  I try (hard) to be as obedient as possible.  Tiis-tiis na muna. 

And since it's still a weekend in this part of the world (oh yes, I am still in Pinas!) I'll be posting a recipe of one of my favorite dishes. Well, it became a favorite just recently.  It all started when I began cooking it, hahaha! Kidding aside, this recipe is easy to follow and since this has vinegar, it will not get spoiled easily.  Just put it inside the fridge and pop it in the microwave or heat it in a pan. Like the adobo, this dish becomes more delicious the longer you store it. Ika nga, mas matagal, mas sumasarap. 


garlic (as you can see, I love using loads of garlic in my cooking)


(can't remember which part, I wish I could say belly but I just noticed na merong kasamang buto dito sa photo hehe!)

shrimp paste 
(I prefer using the cooked bagoong, the one you can buy in bottles like the one above.  I like spicy food, hence the spicy variant. I think they also have sweet or the regular variants)

green chilli peppers
(some would prefer putting them whole but since I love the hint of spice, I slice them in diagonal like in the photo above)

sliced eggplant
(this is optional. I just love eating talong with bagoong so, why not?)

Seafood Feast at Dampa Seafood Grill

Since I cannot indulge in good food at the moment because I am still recovering from the operation, let me just satisfy myself (and you) with the great food that I and Mr. X had during one of our dinner nights back in the sandpit.

Dampa Seafood Grill
Dampa Seafood Grill

I've been waiting for a chance to try out this newest seafood joint in Dubai since it opened. So when Mr. X asked me one weekend where I want to have dinner after hearing mass, I immediately said, "Dampa!" Mr. X doesn't really like dining out for seafood as he prefers having it at home but since he asked me, he didn't really have a choice.  Hehehe!  I told him I've read a lot of good reviews about the place and besides, what can go wrong when dining in a seafood restaurant?

Thanks to WAZE, we didn't have a hard time locating the place. We arrived a few minutes after 6pm and we saw a lot of people already waiting outside to be seated.   Actually, we were really not surprised as the restaurant has become famous to not only kabayans but other nationalities as well, since the day it opened. We had our name listed and though we were told that waiting time can be from 30-45 minutes, we still patiently waited as I really cannot wait for another day to try the food in this resto.

So when "Miss Kris" (Mr. X gave his name and they thought it was my name, hence the Miss) was called, I got so excited that I didn't even bother asking if we are going to be seated outside or inside.  Good thing we were seated inside as I don't think I'd be able appreciate al fresco dining during summer in Dubai.

Thank you!

To all those who took time to visit me in the hospital, to those who sent me their well-wishes and to all those who included me in their prayers, Thank You!

After 4 days of staying in the hospital, I am now back home recovering. The operation went well, and I finally said goodbye to my dysfunctional tubes.  Good thing we opted for an open surgery instead of laparoscopy because if we pushed thru with the latter, they will still end up cutting me open because of the adhesions between one of the tubes and the ovary.  

I now have a 5-6in bikini-cut wound on the lower abdomen.  This somehow gives me an idea how it feels to give birth via CS. I'm sure CS is a lot harder because despite the pain you are feeling, you also have a baby to take care of.  I am still in pain but I can manage it. Buti na lang din I have a high pain tolerance.  The only thing that I hate is that I was advised not to take a bath until my next checkup with my doctor. And that is on Thursday next week. Que horror!  That means I will have to rely on sponge baths for a week. Sniff! Tomorrow, I'll whip up some ninja moves so I can have my hair washed.  I feel so sticky all over!

Again, thank you to all those who have given me a bit of their time to see me.  Also, I am thankful that I have again reconnected with a good friend whom I thought I have lost forever.  You know who you are. I promise I will not let anything come between our friendship ever again.  

I am a step closer to my ultimate dream of having a baby.  When I get back to UAE, I will give myself 2-3 months to fully recover and then I will start with the IVF process.  It's again going to be a tough road but I am putting my full trust in the Lord that if it is in accordance to His will, He will grant us our wish.  Please continue to pray for us too and for everybody who wishes to have their bundles of joy.

God bless u all!
