Vikings Buffet SM North EDSA

Would you believe it was my first time ever at Vikings last week? Hubby and I have attempted to dine at Vikings SM North EDSA, Vikings MOA, and even Vikings SM Megamall but have never been successful because the line is always soooo long and our kids don't like waiting.

Thus when we got an invitation to check out Vikings, we immediately said yes! We weren't going to pass up the chance for direct access... no more lining up, lol!

The place is huge! We were amazed by how much food and drink Vikings had to offer. We've been to most of the popular buffets in the city but Vikings is entirely on a different level in terms of selection. We were told they have at least 200 dishes!

There's so much food they have to have multi-level racks to put them in.

Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Eyeliner Review

There are only three eye makeup products I can't live without -- an eyebrow pen, an eyeliner, and mascara. I can do away with the eye shadow for most part.

That said, I was very excited to try Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Eyeliner! They sent me 2 shades to review: Chic Brown and Peppermint.

Here they are. The pencils are retractable -- the pencil's body is plastic and you just have to twist the ends to push out more of the pencil tip.

Swatching the pencils on my hand revealed just how pigmented they are. Wow! I'm impressed.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara Review

Ever since I tried K-Palette Lasting 2 Way Eyebrow Liner, it has moved on to become THE ONLY product I use on my eyebrows. Whenever I find something that works, I'm not likely to let it go. I think I've gone through maybe 4 wands in the last couple of years.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara Review
Just when I thought all was well with my eyebrows, out comes K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara. OMG. When I was in my 20s, I remember using Max Factor Clear Mascara to keep my thick eyebrows in check. Am I going to go back to using mascara on my eyebrows again? Anyhow, this has 2 shades available and I chose the darker one, Natural Brown 102.

You can see the product color because the tube is actually transparent.

Oh but instead of the usual mascara brush, you get a tiny little hairbrush-like wand like this. My Barbie doll had a hairbrush like this when I was a kid.

Mattress shopping... but where do old mattresses go to die?

My hubby and I have been married for 14 years, I think. Hahahaha! Basta 1999. That's just how much I suck at math. Anyhow, back then everything was shiny and new. Our house, our furniture, our appliances... etc. As expected, more than a decade later, things started to deteriorate. This year has been pretty record-breaking in terms of household expenses. Our floor tiles at the ground floor mysteriously rose and naturally broke when they got stepped on. Our washing machine broke down (it's our second actually, it lasted maybe 3 years). We had to repaint because our walls already looked grimy and depressing after over a decade no matter how much cleaning we did. Our stovetop cookers also died. A chat with Chef Rob Pengson convinced us to replace them with induction cookers.

Next thing to reach breaking point was our mattress. It's so bad it's uneven. If you stay at my hubby's side of the bed, you can actually fall off the side because it's already inclined downwards. It was time to go mattress shopping! We went to the Uratex Premium Mattress Gallery at the Ronac Center along Ortigas Avenue.

It was a cool, quiet, and peaceful place actually.

There are over a dozen mattresses you can test there. Yes, these beds are made for lying on.
