2012 Book Challenge: September

The game is still on! Like last month, I completed 4 books. I'm quite positive that I could finish 40 books by the end of this year. Yey!

As continuation of my August post, here are my September books:

27. It's Not That Complicated by Eros Atalia

- The second part of Atalia's book "Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me", focuses on Intoy's life after graduation, and after Jen. While he's trying to adjust with his work (his sarcastic but witty humor still gets him into trouble), he's also trying to forget Jen. And he meets Tina, the company's HR officer, who suddenly gave him unusual attention. Will Tina be the solution to make Intoy finally forget Jen? Or add to his misery? You must read the book to find out.

28. Pugad Baboy 24 by Pol Medina Jr

- The latest installment of Pugad Baboy, it gives humor to the political and current issues circa 2011-present. I found it witty and really funny. I love the team-up of Pao and Tiny in their story arc "Green Heroine". However, you wouldn't be able to relate if you don't watch or read news.

29. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

- This book is a series of letters written by a 15-year-old boy named Charlie to an anonymous friend. He begins by sharing his grief due to the death of his good friend, who killed himself. He then shares about his adventures with his newfound friends, Sam and Patrick, and his attraction to Sam. He would even share about the secrets he would find out unintentionally but wouldn't divulge it to anyone else.

Reading this book will bring you back to memory lane and remind you on how you think during high school. This book will even teach you on how important the role of parents in bringing up their children. This story might be shocking to some, but then, it's reality. 

30. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

- The story begins with an 80-year-old man visiting his wife in a retirement home, reading a notebook which is a story of their lives. The notebook contains their love story, which happened several years ago, during the time when Allie was already engaged to another man but found Noah and gave him a visit. He reads to him on how they reunited and make their love work despite the consequences. Now suffering from Alzheimer's, Allie failed to recognized that she's actually talking to her husband but would go back to normal after listening to the story.

This is the story that we always wish would happen to us, that we'll have somebody to be with when we grow old. The book is a testament that love can endure everything. 

Reaching my quota this year, watch out for more books! :)

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 

Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't. 
Here comes a more effective solution to prevent acne: Acne Care Beauty Soap.
