Prom Dresses I love to wear dresses on ordinary days. As a teacher, I prefer wearing dressing because it is comfy and stylish. I can wear it during casual days, during special occasions, and of course, glamorous days. In the business that we are in right now, there are days that we need to wear fabulous gowns and elegant dresses. As I surf through the net for elegant and unique designs.

From the ashes of its dirt-laden image, Ozamiz City is rising loud and proud with its latest crusade to crush bad elements in its territory.
On Wednesday (January 18), an estimated 30,000 Ozamiznons marched to a public venue beside the town’ historic structure famously known as Cotta. There was a public outcry to cleanse the city and eliminate once and for all the filthy stigma that has been since associated to Ozamiz City.
On that evening, the city government has declared the what it’s called Alsa Ozamiz, a local movement to rally all Ozamiznons to shrug off all bad elements that has been corrupting and ravaging the once stellar status of the city.
As described by the incumbent Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog, Sr., Alsa Ozamiz bears the same ideals just like his grandfather’s first and original Alsa Ozamiz movement back in the 50s to fight government insurgencies… except that this time, the fight is not against rebels, but to a more profound cause — that is to fight all negative elements in the Ozamiznon society.

You name it, it’s on the list — from illegal gambling down to illegal fishing and the like, with illegal drugs on top of the list… the city government led by Mayor Aldong are all down to tap it off their city.

In a press conference held prior to the evening’s Alza Ozamiz event, the city’s father-daughter tandem composed of Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr. and Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog vented out their sentiments about the latest accusations to them.

Vice Mayor Parojinog cries foul on their critics’ claim that the city’s drugs situation is “rampant”. Vice Mayor Nova Princess said all these allegations are really unfair for all the drugs initiatives that they have implemented in the city long before DU30 came in to power.

“Dito sa Ozamiz City nuon pa man matagal na kaming nakipag-gyera sa ilegal na droga,” said Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr.
Mayor Parojinog, Sr. noted that they’ve been having this extensive fight against drugs however sadly, all these initiatives all went down the drain for nothing because apparently, their accomplishments just went under the radar of the then police chiefs for some unknown reasons.
On the press meeting, the Parojinogs presented a really thick book of the anti-drugs operations report that has been taking place since 2013, long before President Duterte’s massive national anti-drug campaign.

Vice Mayor Parojinog noted that the book contains all the reports on the drug raids, drugs suspects arrests and illegal drugs confiscations undertaken by the city hall with the PNP since 2013.
“Nuong kasagsagan ng campaign ko against drugs, madaming nagalit sa akin… kahit mga kamag anak ko,” added Mayor Aldong.
At one point the Mayor was teary-eyed as he said, “Taga-rito kami sa Ozamiz tapos sisirain namin ang lugar namin?”.
Just recently, Mayor Parojinog, Sr. had a meeting with President Duterte who also met other city and town mayors in Malacanang Palace last January 11.
 Parojinog, Sr. described his meeting with Duterte in Manila as cordial, with the Chief Executive saying that the earlier pronouncement of Parojinog’s involvement in drugs was based on report from regional intelligence units.
“Mas lalo kaming maninindigan sa aming laban sa droga bilang suporta sa Pangulong Duterte na handang itaya ang buhay para sa bayan,” stated Mayor Aldong in front of the media team.
Of course, being included on DU30’s narco-politician list (from which Mayor Aldong’s case is currently under revalidation) and having this aggressive campaign called “Alsa Ozamiz”, Mayor Aldong Parojinog’s detractors would definitely raise their eyebrows with the coincidence.
Additionally, there were social media buzz that Alsa Ozamiz is the Parojinog’s strategy to sack the newly-assigned city police chief Espinido.

However, the courageous mayor gleefully revealed that Alsa Ozamiz is actually a joint effort of the PNP and the city hall. In fact, during the Alsa Ozamiz gathering that night at the Cotta, although not present, the new city police chief had a long VTR message for all Ozamiznons that affirms his support on this anti-drugs initiatives by Mayor Aldong and VM Nova Princess (and the rest of the Ozamiz City Hall).

Later that Wednesday evening Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr. led the formal launch of the ‘Alsa Ozamiz’ anti-crime program. ICMY, the Alsa Ozamiz program is an extensive program of the Ozamiz city hall that pushes civilian-barangay partnerships with government and non-government agencies to prevent “all that is illegal” in the city i.e. illegal drugs, gambling, fishing, logging, etc…
With illegal drugs on top of their list, the leading city officials stated that they have standby programs to support this city anti-drugs campaign. This includes the proposed private partnership with rehabs as part of the follow-up initiatives for “tokhang responders” and also the potent “reward system” when it comes to intelligence gathering, among others.
On the eve of the Alsa Ozamiz declaration and right after the press briefing, some 560 videokarera machines that were voluntarily surrendered to brgy captains were crushed altogether by a payloader right in front of the city hall grounds. These videokarera and fruitgame machines are allegedly being used habitually by drug addicts as a fond pastime most notably when they are high on drugs.

MeNow Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover

If you love makeup, I am 100% sure you have a long-lasting, and smudge proof lipstick in your kikay kit. I am also sure once or twice you found it difficult to remove your long lasting lipsticks and after removing it you feel your lips dry and all beaten up. Haha! Kasi ako ganun, I use to brush it with soft cloth or with my toothbrush. Until I discovered MeNow Oil-in-Gel Lipstick remover from the makers of Kissproof long lasting lipsticks. I am a fan of Kissproof lipstick,click here to see my previous review and swatches.

mineral oil, neopentyl glycol diheptanoate, isododecane, hydrogenated styrene, blue 1, yellow 5, etc.


This unique oil-based formula is effective, quick, and easy to use.

Just leave it on for 30 seconds to remove lipstick gently.

Aloe Vera extract provides hydrating and smoothing properties.

My thoughts on Menow Ultimate Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover: 
It's an amazing product. It literally removes the lipstick completely on the lips. The ingredients are also very safe and will not harm your lips. It also do not have any strong scent or stinging feeling on the lips. After using it, it leaves the lips soft and smooth. It is also non-messy and super easy to use. Here's a video of my amazing experience. Pardon my awkward face hihi.

Monomola Wow Long Lasting Lip Tattoo

Okay, so to be honest, I'm not really a lipstick person. It was only last year that I finally decided to try out more shades of lipsticks. I remember one of my student's telling me before to put on lipsticks too 'coz I really look pale. And so my journey started.. I realized how lipsticks make any look totally different just by the shade. It also has a big effect on how the makeup will be put together. So, expect to have more lipsticks review so I could finally find my holy grail on lipsticks.

Okay, so enough about my history, on the chopping board today for my lipstick review is:
Monomola Long Lasting Lip Color/Tattoo

This is not mine but my sister-in-law which she bought from Lazada. It is originally Php599 but is on sale for only Php175.00.

Product Description:
Monomola Wow Magic Long Lasting Lip Tattoo lasts for almost 24 hours! It acts as impermanent colour tattoo on your lips and does not smudge or gets erased for 24 hours long! Every woman's secret - the ultimate no-makeup weapon! Long lasting, hydrating and stay-put finish.

How to Use: Apply the Lip Tattoo thickly over your lips and wait for 10-15 minutes until it completely dries up and remove the dried lip tattoo.

My thoughts on the Monomola wow Magic Long Lasting Lip Tattoo:

 I'm just so happy that I did not buy it. Buti nalang I have a kind hearted sister-in-law who let me test it first, because it really is very disappointing. I got excited to try it because I saw reviews of how you will peel it off and you'll have a long lasting smudge proof lipstick. It works like a lip tint so it really stays put on your lips thus making it look naturally your color.

What I did not like about it was that it was too messy, time consuming, and stains. It was messy because the consistency was too heavy and "malagkit". Upon putting it on, you would need about 20-25 minutes to wait so the lip color would stick to your lips. The problem with the waiting time is that nakakainip, plus nakakangalay. The color then ended up in my mouth and staining my teeth. Yucccckkkyyyy! Plus when I first applied it on my lip, medyo mahapdi siya. But not to the extent that I had to remove it immediately, I could bear with it. Then when I peeled off the lip tattoo, hindi pantay pantay yung kulay. There were some parts na dark yung shade and others na wala. It was true though that it was long lasting and difficult to remove because I had to use lipstick remover to fully erase it. It wasn't really the shade I was after and more so the experience. I do not have the time to always wait that long to put on lipstick and I really did not like how messy it was to put on.

Have you ever tried to use Monomola Wow Long Lasting Lip Tattoo? Do you have any tips for me so I can maybe try it again?:)

Armed with remarkable service, passionate service, and a home-y feel to their restaurant. The ambiance welcomes and encourages conversations, food conversations, social gatherings and social events.

Beauty Review:MeNow Kiss proof Soft Lipsticks

Hello! So for my first post as soon as I announced the blog site's changes is a make up review. Been really shy about posting beauty reviews because I always feel awkward when I do selfies and product shoots but what the heck, I just want to share some of my cheap finds with you all. Hopefully, it can help you find the right product for you!:) hihi! Wishfully thinking, of course. So anyway, there has been a raved in our office about the MeNow Kissproof Soft Lipsticks.

I first got my two MeNow Kissproof Soft Lipsticks last December 2015 after seeing It's me Mamanee tried its long lasting and smudge proof effect. I was really in search of a lipstick that will stay a lot longer on my lips cause I have a tendency to smudge or "eat" it leaving me with my pale looking lips. You don't know how many times people thought I was dizzy because of my pale skin. Anyway, the first two lippies I got was #15 and #16.

MeNow Kiss Proof Soft Lipsticks is made in China and it promises a long lasting, smudge and kissproof matte soft lipsticks. It also states in its box that it hydrates the lips.

Here are my swatches:

Then I got two more MeNow Kiss Proof which are numbers 6, 1 and 13. I am not so much into reds so I gave up number 16 and stuck to my favorite number 15. I always wear number 15 when I teach and its really a great help cause I don't need to retouch over and over in between classes. It keeps me from looking pale but gives off just a nude fresh look.

This is number 15 and what I wore during the Goldilocks Birthday Caravan at Enchanted Kingdom.
 My current favorite is number 6 because it fits my lips natural color. I am not as confident to wear red lipsticks so number 6 is just the right color. Not so much nude, but not so red too. (gets nyo ba yun?) haha!:)

Looks really natural and fresh. Mukha naman akong buhay diba hihi!:) 

For some of the red lines of MeNow Kissproof, I tried number 1 and 13.

MeNow Kiss Proof #1

MeNow Kiss Proof #13

My thoughts on number 1 and 13: Number 1 is like the color of aratiles. If you're a Filipino I think you'll know what that is. It's a shiny red lips with like glittery color to it. Its redness is also not as loud and it comes close to a maroon shade of red. Number 13, on the other hand,  is perfect for night outs and events. You would really stand out while wearing it while downplaying your eye make up. I like that its matte and it really hightlights the shape of my lips. I am just not a red lipstick wearer but I think I can pull this off for a special occassion.

These are the swatches, haha sorry I take #awkwardselfies but I hope it gives you an idea on how it looks on fair complexion like mine. 

General thoughts on MeNow Kiss Proof Soft Lipsticks:
  • A must try and must have for every girl
  • Any age can find the perfect shade for them
  • Long lasting
  • Smudge Proof
  • Dries quickly
  • Kiss Proof!
  • Affordable
Tips on using MeNow Kiss Proof Soft Lipstick:
  • Put it on horizontally on your lips so you can cover your entire lips evenly. 
  • Matte lipsticks have a tendency to dry your lips so make sure to prep it up with balm or use balm after using MeNow Kissproof
  •  MeNow Kissproof isn't retractbale as it may seem so it needs a sharpener. 
  • Do not put on too many layers of the lipstick because it has a tendency to cake or solidify. 
  • Let the lippies dry first before testing its smudge and kiss proof feature.
That's it, I am hoping to get hold of more kissproof lipsticks, if my budget permits so I would update this for you too! If you have tried MeNow Kiss Proof soft lipstick what would you recommend me to get hold of next? Thanks, and hoping to hear your suggestions!:)
