My first stop today was at Matrix Salon to get my hair color retouched. It only took an hour to retouch the violet shade and get my hair treated so it doesn’t get too dry. I also asked what I could do about all the frizziness and they gave me this anti-frizz serum to shut me up.

LELZ. Just kidding, they’re very friendly over there. Can’t wait to try this out and see if I can get my frizz under control. Nakakainizz kasi ang frizz. Ask your salon if they have Matrix products!

Since it was just a quick session at the salon, I was able to meet up with Maxx and the Youngs (omg that sounds like a band name, Maxx and The Youngs) for lunch at TuanTuan, Megamall. It was my first time there.

It was also my first time to eat pork buns. I told Maxx I had previously tried the yummy pork buns at Ippudo and she said those aren’t real pork buns. Hahaha I don’t even know what that’s supposed to mean!! But yeah, the pork buns at Tuantuan looked very different from the ones at Ippudo.

They're like toasted siopao. Yummy!

Lemon iced tea served in a nice metal mug. It wasn’t sweet iced tea. I don’t like sweet iced tea.

Spicy laksa noodle soup, recommended by the waiter, was very good. The 5 of us shared one order since it was a big serving anyway.

I don't know what kind of curry this is, Lauren ordered it, but it was so tasty I had seconds.

Honey garlic spareribs were highly recommended by Megan but it was just okay for me. I guess I'm just really not into ribs.

Maxx and Megan got their eyebrows done while Vic, Lauren and I browsed the vinyl record selection of Satchmi. I didn’t even know they had a store in Mega Fashion Hall, I thought their records were just carried by Heima! I asked if I could take photos because y’know, most stores are so weird about photography in their stores – God forbid you copy their stuff. But the Satchmi staff gladly obliged and encouraged me to take photos.

Love the look!

This would make a great laidback date place because they've got a listening room!

You can also buy their stuff online via satchmi.com. Speaking of Satchmi, they’re throwing a party called Satchmi Vinyl Day on April 11th at Bonifacio High Street. Cheats is playing so I hope you can drop by!

Because I’m now part of the Tita-hood, I now follow a budget. So these are the only things I went home with today. Excellent discipline, Saab!!

It’s past 5PM and I’m home, I just watched the first episode of iZombie – thought it was a nice light series. Loved the lead girl, hated the token black guy detective. Finished downloading episode 2 of my new PS4 game Life is Strange and I’m about to get on it!!

Hope you’re having a good Wednesday as well :)

♥,
Saab

    Hey Saab! How’s iZombie? I’m really not a fan of anything zombie (PVZ, TWD, etc etc) except Warm Bodies (i even read the books!) because R (Nicholas Hoult–JLaw’s ex) is such a cutie! I’m thinking of watching this because of your previous post but a little detail from you will help. hehehe.

    Also, Satchmi is such a cute store! I feel like this will be the new place to be for hipsters/indie kids. Mahal nga lang the vinyls! I want them all. T_T

    See you sa Vinyl Day!!! <3

      Hi Trina! iZombie is cute naman! I’ve only seen the first episode, it’s super light lang. Nothing scary, nothing groundbreaking either. Jim didn’t enjoy it. Haha. It falls under my “Play in The Background” TV show list like Pretty Little Liars, Mistresses, Devious Maids – stuff I’ll watch while I’m washing the dishes or sorting clothes or whatever. Haha. If you have time to waste on a new cute show, go ahead and watch it. I have a feeling it will get better. Will watch episode 2 tonight! Oh yay, see you on Vinyl Day!!<3

    iZombie reminds me of Pushing Daisies because of the solving crimes part and That's So Raven with the visions. Hahahaha!

    Natawa ako sa Seestra! Channeling Helena of Orphan Black lang. Who’s your favorite among the characters pala sa Orphan Black? Did I digress much? Sorry. ;)
