Glamour up with @principessa_bty

There are so many P’s to look out for with Principessa Beauty: pretty, pink, and pamper! The beauty company also prides on perfume, packaging, and performance…

I am currently using “naked pink” lip gloss. It’s shiny but not excessive and after it’s on my lips for some time, it’s not sticky like others. The color also goes well with everything so I like to just keep it in my pocket.

I have to try out their other products too. They have fragrances and creams, dry shampoo, and look at this cute water bottle.

($1 from each bottle sold will be donated to breast cancer research)

(One of many gift sets they have. This limited edition includes perfume, pouf, dry shampoo, and body wash)

So definitely go to their website and check out the many products they have. It’ll make a great gift for friends and family…or if you need a pampering! 🙂

Tangerine Cuisine with @iamSharky

Sharky and I always managed to communicate someway or another everyday. Even though I left Toronto 3 years ago, Sharky is still one of my best friends. When I went home for Canadian Thanksgiving, I was craving the Manchurian Paneer from Tangerine. Tangerine is a Hakka x Indian fusion restaurant. OMG divine. Actually that weekend, I went there twice (once with mom too). Cuz there is actually no other restaurant in the world that makes this.

It’s basically fried cheese in spicy sauce with cilantro. nom nom

It was unseasonable warm that day.. Kinda like summer so I wore my Sam Edelman Tuxedo Shoes!

Even though Sharky didn’t want to eat Asian food, I made him ha ha.. He was so kind to make me a straw bracelet, looks like Cartier a bit.

Hakka cuisine is the cooking style of the Hakka, and originally came from southeastern China (Guangdong and Fujian). Hakka people are migratory tribes of ethnic Han people originated from central China. Their ancestors exiled themselves from foreign rulers such as the Mongols during the Yuan Dynasty. Due to their late migration to the southern areas of China, they found that all of the best land had been settled long before. The Hakka people were forced to settle in the sparsely settled hill country. As a result, fresh produce was at a premium, forcing the Hakkas to heavily utilize dried and preserved ingredients, such as various kinds of fermented tofu, preserved lime and much use of onion.

Hakka means “Guest”. The Hakka people in Toronto are first and second generation of Hakka settler from India. The Hakka food is infused with many common ingredients of Indian spices such as red chillies, green chillies, red chilli powder, tandoori masala, cumin and coriander. Together with the Indian and Chinese ingredients, many of the Hakka food is more flavourful than other Chinese cuisine one has experienced.


@PanAmABC Recap: The Genuine Article

Tonight’s episode opens up with the expensive trick Ginny Saddler (Erin Cummings) wearing Captain Dean Lowrey (Mike Vogel)’s pilot uniform. I usually like the guy’s girl, but this one is just so sleazy with all the fur coats. It’s disastrously tacky, and the jet black hair makes her look borderline drag-like when she wears it in a bun. They all fly to Rio de Janeiro, including Everett Henson (Scott Cohen), the VP of Pan Am. A little too close for comfort are we? Ginny causes even more trouble by inviting Dean to join her for dinner with Henson. Of course, the fool is in love with her and Dean pulls out for good. At least he’s still got some sense in him — it looks like her claws didn’t sink in too deeply. Too bad we can’t say the same for Ginny, who claims she’s fallen for Dean. Please tell me he doesn’t fall for this.

Maggie Ryan (Christina Ricci) might lose her job with all her fooling around. There’s another photographer chasing Laura Cameron (Margot Robbie) for a story on the Pan Am stewardess life and Maggie wants some exposure to get her out of a huge pickle she’s been nursing. For a girl who’s been faking it to make it her entire life just for the chance at the Pan Am experience, she definitely isn’t rubbing the right people in the best way. After getting arrested for buying stolen goods and making bail from the handy co-pilot Ted Vanderway (Michael Mosley), she’s running out of luck.

But don’t underestimate Ms. Ryan. “I made a new me. I took a lot of shortcuts, I told more than a few fibs, every time I got caught I moved on. Each close call was a stepping stone to something better. But this time there is nothing better. This is it. I can’t lose Pan Am.” She turns to Hanson to help her out, saying she can return the favor by revealing some critical information about someone he’s very close to. I have to respect the girl that does whatever she can to save herself, and Ginny deserves what she’s about to get. Too bad Dean’s stuck with another bad apple. Will he just go for Collette Valois (Karine Vanasse) already?

We don’t see much of the secret agent Kate Cameron (Kelli Garner) this episode. She gets closer with her beau Niko Lonza (Goran Visnjic) who’s going through his own troubles with his Yugoslavian loyalty. Apparently he’s next on the list to join the secret agency. It’s Kate’s job to convince him. And she thought she was just a courier! Clearly, she’s got way more on her plate than she can swallow. Can she do her job if she’s falling in love with this guy?

Taking off, @missamandachen
