my random ramblings

in search of a rabbitdog with a bushy tail aka evee

Pokemon Go has just been launched in the Philippines and of course Kei was already playing the moment they released it! It even made him walk from our home to my office. Oh the wonders of portable wifi.

I started playing last saturday night- Aug 6,2016. With the intention to just try it out.

I wanna be the very best! catching everything I see... even if its just a Staryu.

After a whole day at work, I also got the app once I got home. I am very much curious and I watched Pokemon as a kid so I can relate, I wanted to go try it out for myself. And promptly got my first Charmander.

all mine

the first three

Followed by a Rattata then a Pidgey, Magicarp followed and lastly by a very confused Psyduck. Those are the Pokemons that reside in our home. Pretty common ones, but we do really have a lot or real pigeons at home so maybe it is only right that their Pokemon counterparts are also found at our home.

After much grumbling and no wild pokemons, I saw someone nearby set out a lure on a Pokestop to trap Pokemons. I decided that I would head out. Kei was adamant since I wanted to go out at 12 midnight. He relented and accompanied me to the market (two corners away from home) that was as far as he allowed us to go. –I never made it to the Pokestop. Its technically three corners away from home.

I did get pokemons but just not what I wanted. I wanted a Evee.

So that midnight trip out, I used one of the incense and got a Poliwag, Pinsir and numerous Pidgeys for heading out at night. I just turned the low levels into candies.

second batch! -I used incense for the pinsir and poliwag. I also caught numerous Pidgeys

The next day, was a normal day for us. I went to scrub the patio and Kei did some home decor project. After lunch he asked me where I wanted to go. I told him that we could continue playing pokemon at the mall. Then came the next question, what mall do we go to? After a bit of thought, I asked to go to Robinsons magnolia because they have a park = possible pokemon spawning ground, they have Daiso, Gourdo’s, True Value, Starbucks, a food court, supermarket and National bookstore all of which are our usual haunts. So a quick 30 mins later we are headed to the mall! On the way I managed to get a lot of Rattatas again, some Magikarp….

Then Goldeen, Horsea, Tentacool, a lot of Weedles and two Venonat.

pretty common ones...

Again, those that are low levels are made into candies.

At the mall we saw that there are lures on every Pokestop! (they have 3) That got me very excited to try my luck in catching more! So first few casts yielded Staryu, Weepinbell, Pidgeys and Pidgeottos. I was getting a bit sad I tried walking away and moving to another area, when I spotted my first Evee! I hurriedly caught it and never moved away in hopes of getting more and true enough! I got three more Evees!

Then it was back to the Pidgeys again. As I was about to give up and just go malling, I got a Bellsprout, Dudrio and Pinsir. Not bad.

that would be my Bellsprout, Dodrio and lastly the Slowpoke

Going back home we decided to get a massage and while walking I encountered a Slowpoke. But that was just the only one I got. The rest are Pidgeys and Rattatas again. Hopefully my next hunt will yield something better. For now, I am very much content with my Evees.

Soon I am going to explore Ortigas area to get myself a Pikachu I was told they are found in Megamall.

So, from trying it out to wanting to collect them all, I must say this game is highly addictive!

I wanted to catch more Pokemons and making some Pokefriends along the way would make this even better!

a girly discovery: DollyWink falsies -Updated

I used to wear falsies every weekend.

It was an obsession. Natural type, cross type, edgy type, etc… name it I hoard them. I usually get them from the face shop or etude house.

Like magic, they make my small eyes look bigger!

After a 3 year phase of wearing falsies. I stopped, they tend to be quite heavy and sometimes itchy too. Falsies are now reserved for special events.  So now that I am planning for my Pre-nup pictorial… it qualifies as extra special occasion right?

I wanted something better than my usual lashes. I want DollyWink falsies.

I have seen the product long ago in the Japanese magazine Popteen and reading about it in different blogs. I remember being very interested about it because they all gave good reviews about it (not shiny, lightweight,different lengths), but since it is only sold in Japan, I just settled for what was locally available. Not anymore. 

I discovered that DollyWink can now be found in the Philippines! I quickly hurried over to SM Watsons to check. Yes they have it! but alas, the No. 2 Sweet Girly style I like was out of stock. Being persistent, I went to look for their distributor. Off I go to Yhansy store and found it easily.

So, I went to look for my DollyWink here. Inside this accessories store was lash/japanese cosmetics heaven! A really nice discovery!

a lot of

Japanese cosmetics galore!

The assortment of DollyWink falsies to choose from!

wow

So many to choose from! 

Easily found the one I am looking for. The kind shopkeeper also informed that indeed, the one I am looking for is one of their bestsellers that tends to go out of stock quickly. Good thing I went to look for their store! I must say luck is on my side as they have the limited edition DollyWink falsies! This means I get 3 pairs of lashes that the usual two pairs, for the same price! *look at the displayed falsies, the ones with the neon pink label are the limited editions like the one I picked.

Honestly wanted to get No 2, and No. 11 but since I already got the limited edition that consists of three pairs, I just brought one. Will surely be back to get more but for now, I am contented with this. 

To give you an idea, here is the different styles of DollyWink. This is the regular packaging 2 pairs on each pack.

*Yhansy also carries DollyWink eyelines and eyeshadows! plus an assortment of Japanese cosmetics. and pretty accessories.

  • Updated: Apparently Yhansy is now closed. Dollywink eyelines, falsies… products can be found in SM/Watsons.
