Korea In Manila #002
Annyeong, chingus! I miss youuu!
To be honest, I am feeling extra sluggish the past days. Add to that, my attention span is at its lowest, my days will consist more of sleep and exercise (that's why I get tired so easily!). Last night, I broke my own record and slept at 9 frickin pm!!! Who sleeps before 10 these days!? HAHA! I am also starting to feel uninspired and not-myself, but I guess that's okay! We all have these days!
Anyway, I want to share the few Korea In Manila experiences I have had the past weeks. Some I've already posted on our Instagram @KoreaInManila. Might be something that will interest you? Enjoy! ❤
With my bff Paul at Sibyullee, a fancy Korean restaurant in Pasig! It's too far from me so we took advantage and tried it when we had a Pasig event for Cole Haan. More on this below!
A new Korean-themed wasteland opens in my weekend mall Festival Mall, I am super ecstatic! I held on to my wallet as I entered Ximiso for the first time. As expected, I saw a bunch of beauty, home, and random stuff that you usually see in such stores like Mumuso and Miniso. I picked a few to try at home, and my favorites include the wide makeup brush and travel bottles!
Puffs for your foundation when you're like me who constantly washes her sponge, huhu (my kind of OC). 😅
Makeup brushes! I got the black full-face foundation brush for only Php 129, far left of second row, and use it everyday!
Watches and bags for less than Php 500:
Looks like Ban-Ban!
Travel kit bottles! I got the empty ones so I can just refill them with my body wash and shampoo at home:
They have wooden hangers:
Php 159 bento boxes:
Eye and Eyebrow pencils ala K Palette:
Body wash, lotion, etc:
Beauty: Pure Beauty Urban Shield Line!

Watsons Philippines just released Pure Beauty's Urban Shield Line, a very special, anti-pollution range that's inspired by nature and infused with antioxidant powers of POMEGRANATE.

Why am I looking at food photos at this hour!!?? 😩 I first heard about Sibyullee on Facebook, when I saw their sponsored posts. There are so many Korean restaurants in the country, but I feel that theirs stood out because: They serve a wide variety of the street foods found in Myeongdong, and because they are street foods but served with a fancy plating! Really interesting.
Verdict: Will go back for the Volcano Kimchi Fried Rice! Also enjoyed the unlimited side dishes, though ang bilis tumigas nun cheese dip but baka dapat in-on nalang namin yun fire. Price wise, I thought it was a bit expensive although considering the size, resto ambiance, and the service--it's actually worth it. Hope I can get back to try the other stuff on their menu (dolsot bibimbap, egg bread, tornado potatoes, cheese ramyeun, etc).
Dakgogi Cheese BBQ - Php 620
Volcano Kimchi Fried Rice - Php 499
Unli side dishes:

To more productive days, hopefully!!!
