Cable

Today, our cable line has finally got its DIGIBOX from sky cable. It is the box that will be attached to the tv and the cable line to get that crystal clear channel receptions. The installation is free, however, an increase of 100 pesos will be added to the bill monthly. Not bad, especially if you're experiencing a grainy, almost blank reception on your tv screen. We've waited for this for almost a month. The kids are always fussing about the tv screen because they cant watch their favorite TV shows like spongebob squarepants. Now, they are able to watch their favorite shows clearly.
We were watching Tron Legacy in Star Movies Channel.

Just a reminder though, Dont let your Child watch TV this close for it might damage their sight, plus, they will receive much amounts of radiation from the TV. Watching should be at least 6 feet far from the TV. Carl is fond of watching this close so what i did was to let him lie down in the bed far from the TV while watching.

Smokey Green

Inspired by Xteeener's make-up tutorial on youtube, I've tried a look of smokey green which is perfect for clubbing or or night parties, or any formal events. This is what I've come up. :)
I used Sephora Palette for the shadows, Mac powder blush in Fever for the cheeks, Nyx round lipstick in Fig, and Pop Beauty Cat eyes liner for the eyeliner.

Rainbow!

I've watched the video of the song "Superbass" by Nicki Minaj and I instantly fell in love with her eye make-up. So, i "imitated" the look using my sephora palette and this is what i got. :)
The Colors are not that intense, it's kinda subtle and soft.

The Black Nazarene

Yesterday, we went to Quirino Grandstand For the feast of the black nazarene. My family is a devotee for nearly three decades and now my parents passed on to my family the tradition of attending the feast every year. 
The black Nazarene was originally colored white but it turned black because of the fire that burned the ship that carried the nazarene from Acapulco, Mexico.
Many of Filipinos especially the devotees believe that the statue is miraculous. It can help you make your dreams come true, or anything that you pray for, will be granted by the black nazarene. During the feast, many people are eager to touch the cord that is used to pull around the cart which contained the nazarene for it is believed that touching it will bring luck.

Carl was waiting for our next destination.

A closer Look of the Nazarene while in procession. My first time to take a photo this near because the procession is usually filled with millions of devotees.

Another closer shot of the Nazarene in procession.

We went at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City to eat. We never waited for the procession to be finished because it usually take almost a day to pass the routes near the Quiapo Basilica.

Yum!

Baked Macaroni Pizza from Sbarro

The day was very tiring and on the news, the procession ended after 22 hours, and nearly 8 million people attended the procession. It is important that we'll always remember who really is that we worship. Whatever religion we have, we must keep in mind that even if we are doing rituals or tradition in showing our devotion, if we are not doing something to improve our lives, then our dreams, aspirations, and wishes in life wont be possible. Prayer changes things, but we should also WORK. Have a great day!
