Sunday Riley Luna Oil

Sorry for the late, and crappy photos, but I'm having a difficult time with my electronics right now... My phone refused to upload these until now. But here is my review of Sunday Riley's Luna Oil, finally.

Oishi Hi Coffee and Tea Matchi

Oishi Boxed Drinks

Bought this set from the local grocery: three coffees and one milk tea. I don't quite remember how much it costs, but I'll tell you now it's not worth the money. There is some sort of problem with the straw, and unless you cut it and pour, you're not going to be able to finish your drink. Do they even test these things out before product launch? Get Netscape instead, it's similar in price with far less effort and grief.

Bare: My Bare Mood

Finishing up my 60 ml bottle of this hand mixed lotion by Bare. The Bare My Mood bottle is Bare's idea of bespoke, with the user able to customize their lotion using the different Bare bases.

This particular mix is both relaxing and invigorating with a good mix of rosemary and peppermint.

Mabining Mandirigma

Life has been so busy lately that I've had time to see it only now, but I strongly recommend Mabining Mandirigma, a steampunk musical.

The libretto is by Nicanor Tiongson and it is Directed by Chris Millado. The lead, Liesl Batucan, is well worth watching just by herself. She is guaranteed to move. But this is more.

Though it entitles itself as a steampunk musical, it feels like part opera and part vaudeville, with bits and pieces occasionally clashing. I do not agree with some of the views portrayed, but the juxtaposition of different characters in the play and the different styles of performance was done adequately.

In style, this reminds me of Miss Saigon, in spirit, Hamilton, but its soul is Filipino. I would recommend any Filipino who loves musicals, and in fact, any Filipino to watch this.

Mabining Mandirigma will run at CCP until December 18 at the Little Theater.
