Samsung 65" Curved UHD TV Review

As promised, I'm making a separate review post for the Samsung 65" Curved UHD TV. It's the reason we had a staycation at Makati Shangrila Hotel.

The first thing that struck me was how big it was. No, big is an understatement. The TV is ginormous -- 65" in diameter.

It comes with 3D glasses and a remote. Like the Samsung Smart TV I reviewed before, this one has a 3D mode.

We took turns trying it out just for fun. It's 3D all right, but not the hardcore 3D that's dizzying. I'm not too fond of 3D especially for extended periods of time. Good thing the Samsung Curved UHD TV's 3D mode just adds a bit of depth to what you're watching but you can watch it quite comfortably.

Makati Shangrila Hotel Staycation!

During the long weekend, I checked in Makati Shangrila Hotel with my family in order to review the Samsung 65" Curved UHD TV. You know what that means... family staycation! Woohoo!

I've actually never stayed at Makati Shangrila Hotel before. I filled out the check-in form in digital form -- so high-tech!

We were checked in to Room 1729, a corner room on the 17th floor where the Samsung 65" Curved UHD TV was set up along with a Samsung Home Theater system. It's classified as a Deluxe Room and depending how, where, or when you check in the rate can range from P9+k net to P12+k net per night. There's both wired and wireless internet access in the room and the speeds are pretty good!

It was a nice spacious room with a big king-sized bed.

Happy Skin ZZ Cream Review

Happy Skin Cosmetics invited us to dinner one weekday evening to showcase their latest products. I love how this brand puts so much thought, creativity, and passion into each product they release.

Happy Skin ZZ Cream Review
It hasn't even been a year since I first got wind of Happy Skin but wow, how their lineup has grown!

Happy Skin ZZ Cream Review
That night, two new products were introduced. First was the Happy Skin Zit Zapper Cream or ZZ Cream. First there was BB... then CC... Happy Skin skips the rest of the alphabet and fast forwards to ZZ! It's actually a cream foundation which gives good coverage and treats/prevents pimples. But why the color and why all the grapefruit? It's because grapefruit extract is this product's secret ingredient!

Three new shades are added to to the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie Line.

Tonymoly Kiss Lover Lip Master Review

I got this Tonymoly Kiss Lover Lip Master lipstick for review a while back. Lip color is one of the few makeup essentials I can't do without. Flawless skin + lipstick are actually enough to make you look nice. Anyhow, I ended up liking this particular lippie so much I listed it as one of my must-haves for my Pond's BB+ Beauty Giveaway.

The brush is angled in a way that makes application easy.
