Business Feature: Entablado

Entablado is a coffee shop in Los Banos Laguna. It is locates just outside the UPLB Campus. It is at the first floor of Vega Center.

One of the owners of the establishment is Ebe Dancel which is a singer/songwriter in the Philippines. Hit songs of Ebe inlcude Makitang Kang Muli.

Entablado is also a place for music enthusiasts as bands and artists also play and perform at night and especially during events. They also supported contestant from UPLB Star in carillon last February 2015.

Last October 2015 they celebrated their first year anniversary and launched a new menu.

Below are some pictures their menu:

Nachos with tomato salsa.
Spaghetti Bolognese

My review:

The nachos are firm and very tasty. They are not too salty  and the white melted cheese blends well with the nachos. The tomato salsa is not just from a can or jar from the supermarket. They make the salsa. It is not too sour.

Spaghetti Bolognese
The pasta is well cooked but not over cooked. The sauce is not sweet. It is not too sour or too salty. I finished the whole plate in just one sitting. It is just right for one serving. It is not short for one serving. You would feel full after eating.

A fantastic promo can be availed during Fridays. Frappes are for P100 only.

And now diners can enjoy their food while connecting with their friends because they now have Wifi.

Catch their exciting events and featured talented artists at their FB page.

San San BB cream Review

Last few months HBC restocked their BB cream so I bought one. Early this year I was finding one since I saw that only a tester is available. I read the front package and was mesmerized with the SPF 43 label.

The ingredients mentioned in the front print are Squalene, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A-C-E and SPF 43.

It also mentioned that the BB cream can the do the following:

Lightens dark spots
Nourishes the skin
Protects skin from sun damage
With antioxidant

Ingredients indicated at the back are the following:

Squalane, Titanium Dioxide, Euphorbia cerifera (Candelilia Wax), Methylsilsesquioxane, Boron Nitride, Beeswax, Hyaluronic Acid, Benzophenone-3, Phenoxyethanol, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10), Arbutin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Cl 77492, Cl 77891, Cl 77491, Cl 77499.

I bought the beige one since the natural color seems lighter than the skin of my face.

But I noticed when I applied the beige BB cream it is darker than the color of my skin.

A good way to make the color to my skin is to apply lighter shade of loose powder on top of this BB cream.

I wish Hortaleza would come up with other shades of this BB cream since only two shades are available- Natural and Beige.

Ratings: (5 as highest)
Smell- 4/5
Tint/Color - 3/5
Texture- 4/5
Lightweight feel - 3/5
Over all - 3/5
