Answers to Donna’s 11 Questions:

1) What’s your beauty regimen? What particular brand of beauty products you are currently using?

Gah! Not applicable! I’ve had ZERO beauty regimen since Yuri was born. Nope, not even a regular facial wash. This question reminds me to take care of myself already!

2) In what way do you reward yourself?

I am a shopper, albeit a kuripot one. Good old retail therapy always calms and destresses me. Also, I tend to time these shopping trips kung sale so less guilt. Plus, it’s not just clothes, shoes, or bags. I also love doing the groceries. 😀

3) What song best describes yourself?

Hard one. I don’t really associate myself to a song, but my hands-down favorite song is Hillsong’s Everyday.

4) What’s your favorite place (specific) and why?

The mall. Seriously. But if you want a profound answer, I’ll choose the beachline of Lanuza, Surigao del Sur.

It’s amazing there because despite the quietness of the place, the waves are thunderously loud! This makes the place a surfing destination. Of course, it helps that you’re with a loved one. Teehee. Unfortunately, I don’t have a personal photo because my memory card got corrupted after my trip there. Huhu.

5) What’s your top 3 favorite food?

Chocolate, cake, pizza

6) What 5 things you can’t live without?

My phone, my laptop, bag, diapers, and my ATM

7) What’s your top 3 favorite blog? Share their link too.

Topaz Mommy, Mommy Fleur, Sugar Go Spice

8) What’s on your shopping/wish list? Name 3.

(Opens actual list in phone) An everyday bag, new divider plate for Yuri, insect bite cream for Yuri

9) Given that your partner allows you to spend a day (24 hours) with a particular famous guy, who would that be and why?

A few years ago, it would have been Ely Buendia. Now, it’s Chantavit Dhanasevi.
