#TheYabuDonSeries Part One

What makes being a vlogger extra fun? Being invited to tasting events! I was at Yabu in Glorietta 5 last March 23 for a private tasting event for the NEWEST Master Class Creations…part one of the Yabu Don Series! Oh boy, was I excited! You can watch the vlog to see it all in action, a little warning, you will drool.

APPETIZERS. I thoroughly enjoyed the edamame and wakame with ebi., considering this was the first time I tried them!


Here is a menu of the latest Donburi Sets – you have a choice between the Salmon Don or the Katsu Curry Don—and even BOTH! Because they’re that good.


THE KATSU CURRY DON. Signature Katsu on a bed of beefy Japanese curry, melted mozarella and your choice of Hire, Rosu or Chicken Katsu.

This was HEAVEN. Oh my goodness. Just writing about this makes me salivate… Everything is perfect. I am a curry person, and good gosh, when you add mozarella to curry, and a large piece of Katsu with steaming hot rice all together? You get heaven in your mouth.


THE SALMON DON. 1 1/2 inch thick salmon steak with crispy salmon skin and salmon roe. Served on a bed of mixed teriyaki rice with sautéed bell peppers and eggplant.

I am honestly NOT fond of salmon, BUT this dish totally changed me. It changed me COMPLETELY. This was truly made of perfection. The crispiness of the salmon skin, the bursting flavor of the salmon roe, the thick piece of salmon steak—all married in my mouth and converted me to a salmon-eating human.


The Yabu Don Series is now available in all YABU branches!

You also get to join the raffle if you order any of the two and you could win a trip for 2 to Tokyo! How awesome is that?

Go to the nearest Yabu now, and eat your heart out! It’s 5:30am where I am right now, and I am so hungry because of this.

Enjoy eating!!!

GENEO+ Treatment at 50% OFF! (Slimmer Face After 1 Session)

Having a double-chin and a non-prominent jawline have always been one of my “problems”. If you watched my vlog entitled “INSTANT RESULTS” you might have seen how this procedure made my face INSTANTLY slimmer, and jawline more prominent!


In this vlog you will see how it all happened! Click play!

Let me give you a little info about the “Super Facial” by the Geneo+:

  1. First part is the RF treatment (fat reduction): this is done on areas that needs “lifting”. You will experience a little heat, but it’s bearable; it might feel intense when passing through acne;
  2. Next step comes the Exfoliation, where dead skin cell is removed to reveal newer, more radiant skin;
  3. Infusion to give the skin all the nutrients it needs (Dermaviews products have a wide range of skincare, from Anti-Aging, to Whitening)
  4. and we also have Oxygenation to improve blood circulation on the face, and keep it radiant and healthy looking; this is the key to getting that glow from within!
  5. You will get a relaxing 30-min mask treatment afterwards to cap everything off


This procedure is P4,000.00 per session but I am so excited to share to all you guys that you get to enjoy 50% OFF if you mention the code SAYTIOCOGENEO

You may also avail a 5 sessions + 1 session at Dermaviews!

Make sure to use the code to get the 50% discount!

Let me know how this works on you! Use the hashtag #saytiocogeneo on Instagram, I’d love to see your photos!


The procedure was held at Dermaviews, located at 5/F Unit 5A-2 Electra House Bldg., #115 Esteban St., Legaspi Village, Makati.

You may start booking your appointment on Monday, March 30, 2015.

Bare it All with LOCYCARE (Visibly Healthy Nails)


I must admit, I am not much of a nail person. But being a video blogger, it is only but proper to have clean, well manicured nails during events/shootings…etc, right? This is why I tend to go for GEL NAILS. Why? They last longer than regular polish, and they look so nice! The downside? In the long run, they make my nails look so yellow and unhealthy. In addition to that, I also get weak, cracking nails!


I was invited to a relaxing night at the newly opened Maison by NailSpa in Rockwell and was treated to a mani pedi! I love Maison’s classy interiors, the food served by Bizu during the event was SO YUMMY, too! Wish I vlogged, but unfortunately, I left my cam inside the care because I was in a rush!

I love Maison’s services, too! You can be sure that their tools are well sanitized and NEW, even, as you will see them packed before your session starts!

This time, NO POLISH! Instead, Locycare was applied! What is it?!

Galderma Philippines introduces Locycare Nail Gel – it penetrates the nails for optimal hydration and restores the water content of damaged nails. It helps promotes healthy nail re-growth and brings back the natural, clean, and healthy look of your nails just after two (2) weeks of daily application.


“As a beauty editor and enthusiast, learning about and using nail polish has become part of my routine. I have to admit, I enjoy the wide range of colors I can paint on my nails and it is something that boosts my mood and confidence. However, overuse of nail polish leads me to have dry, rough nails. I am more than happy to have discovered the innovative technology that is Locycare. Locycare helps me take proper care of my nails by restoring and locking in the nails’ natural moisture. And the best part yet? I can see the impressive results in just two weeks,” shares Agoo Bengzon, Locycare’s brand ambassador.

Proven to recover healthy nails, Locycare contains humectants and Artemisia leaf extract to hydrate and improve dry, damaged, and discolored nails. Just dab it on your nails, lightly massage it into your nail plates, and it will effortlessly penetrate the nails keeping them moisturized, in check, and healthy after each application.

Locycare is here to revolutionize nail care amongst nail polish enthusiasts, consumers and beauty consultants. You too can achieve perfect, bare, happy, and healthy nails with Locycare!

Locycare is now available in leading Mercury Drug branches with a suggested retail price of P600.00 To know more about Locycare, visit and LocycarePhilippines on Facebook. For details about holistic nail care, visit
