Drink Up With Shakeaway!

Have you ever been to a restaurant or coffee shop and can't decide what to order? Wait til you visit Shakeaway in U.P. Town Center! Shakeaway is born in the UK and it is the world's largest milkshake bar company and the original re-inventor of the milkshake since 1993. It currently has 50 stores worldwide and opened its first branch last year!
Shakeaway's flagship branch at U.P. Town Center was opened to the public last November 25, 2016 and more stores are set to open in the coming months. How exciting is that!
Congratulations to the Shakeway Master Franchisee for the Philippines for a successful opening! Everyone was excited to try the milkshakes.
R: "When will I get to taste the milkshakes??"
A mix of international and local candies! With over 180 different ingredients to choose from, the combinations are endless! Ang hirap magdecide mga besh! There's M&M's, Kitkat, Oreos, Skittles, fresh pineapples, fresh strawberries and more! Shakeaway only uses top and quality brand ingredients sourced from around the world and Philippines' local delicacies.
How cute is their shirts?!

When I think of milkshakes, I think of ice cream shaken with chocolate or strawberries and the calories (shucks!!!). I'm not a fan of ice cream or milkshakes talaga BUT Shakeaway's milkshake can be made using ice cream or 100% fat-free frozen yoghurt. For those who are health conscious but still want to indulge, this is perfect news! They also have a range of fit and healthy milkshakes made with the fat-free yoghurt and low calorie ingredients and even fresh greens. For those who like to indulge, they have different categories to choose from, there's fruity, chocolatey, cakey to biscuity, sweety to soda, and everything else in between!
Menu from Shakeaway website
 They really have an extensive menu diba, it might get overwhelming and hard to choose, so my suggestion is ask for their bestsellers because that's what I would do.
Dave is their most popular shake made with Ferrero Rocher, Kinder Bueno and Cadbury's Flake. So chocolatey!

Jose is the Philippine's national exclusive shake made of local ube and sweet macapuno topped with crunchy pinipig.
Joe is made with banana and nutella with chocolate and topped with wafer stick.
 Owen is made with coconut, pineapples and ginger. Sounds and tastes like pina colada!
Shakeway also developed a smoothie range using their own recipe that uses fresh fruits, crunchy ice, fat free yoghurt with a secret blending process! Another healthy and refreshing alternative which is perfect for the summer months.
Shakeaway just launched its exciting shaved ice re-invented menu. It is less than 160 calories per serving! Hooray for more healthy desserts. It's made from 100% real fruit puree topped with fresh fruits just like Alice on the photo which is made from mango and strawberry topped with fresh kiwi and more strawberries.

And what goes well with Shakeaway shakes? Fries!!! It is freshly cooked in under 2 minutes with no deep frying. Must go back to try their fries soon!

During the opening, we were able to sample some of their milkshakes. R was so happy to try all of them!
He liked Dave a lot and asked for a second cup. Haha!
I was able to try one of their fit and healthy shakes, Ivy, I think which was my favorite from what we tried.
Shakeaway toast with the aunties!
He ordered one for achi to try!
It wa s a fun mommy-R date! :) Thank you Shakeaway!

Visit Shakeaway today, bring your love ones and enjoy a cup or two milkshakes!

My BeautyMNL Shopping Experience

One of the best inventions their is to mankind is online shopping!

A&D Eats: Paradise Dynasty at S Maison Mall, Conrad Hotel

If you have been a reader of this blog, you would know why my blog's name has "dumplings" in it. It's because I LOVE DUMPLINGS in all shapes and kinds and xiao long bao is one of them! So when Marj invited me to try Paradise Dynasty, I said YES! Marj said we can bring a plus one so I invited Y's Ninang G to be my date. It was my first time as S Maison Mall and it feels like I've been transported to Hong Kong! It's a really nice and small mall beside Conrad Hotel, if you don't like crowded malls, this is a great alternative to Power Plant where we always frequent. Paradise Dynasty is located on the 2nd floor, it's easy to locate because well the mall is small.
Paradise Dynasty first opened its doors last November 9, 2016. It is a casual dining restaurant that serves affordable selection of northern and southern Chinese cuisine. It currently has seven restaurants in Singapore, with overseas presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

My Brow Artistry Philippines Experience. Because Kilay is Life!

I took the plunge! And had my eyebrows done last year around November with Brow Artistry Philippines and it's one of the best (beauty) decisions I've made for 2016! Let me just share to you how lazy I am when it comes to putting kilay (and make up in general). I only put kilay when I need to attend events and parties. I groom my brows myself but I usually ended up ruining the shape so I have them professionally groomed but only when I happen to be in Power Plant (Emphasis Salon) or when I go to mall where there's Browhaus. Sometimes it gets tedious and for a busy mom/entrepreneur like me, time is GOLD. I know you mommas out there agree! Diba? Getting my brows done means I have 5 minutes more to spare whenever I prepare to go out, no need to do kilay while driving (Bad, I know!) and I wake up with my eyebrows on fleek! No need to do kilay! Yes? Yes! Before I get into the details of my experience, let me tell you a little about what microblading/eyebrowdery is.
