Meiji Amino Collagen

What is collagen?

Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in the body. It plays a major role in maintaining tissue suppleness and elasticity. It’s a beauty essential, key to maintaining a youthful appearance.

Why take collagen supplements?

Starting around the age of 20, the amount of collagen in your body starts to decline. You can replenish collagen through diet to some extent, but the effects of diet alone are limited. That’s why collagen in drinks is attracting so much attention. Readily dissolved in liquids, powdered Amino Collagen is designed to be consumed in drinks, making it easy to get all the collagen you need to build the foundations for beauty. The suggested daily dose is 5,000 mg.

Can be enjoyed with any food and drinks. A single spoonful (about 7 g) contains 5,000 mg of low-molecular fish collagen, 450 mg of arginine amino acid (a beauty factor), 60 mg of glucosamine, and 50 mg of vitamin C. A neutral flavor and fast-dissolving powder formula means it can be served hot or cold for enjoyment with any food or drink. Enjoy it in coffee, juice, yogurt, or any of your favorite dishes.

Effective: Skin care, Anti-Aging and Health care

Ingredients: Fish collagen peptide (gelatin), Maltodextrin, Vegetable oil, Vitamin C, Glucosamine, Arginine, Thickening agent (gum arabic), Flavor, Emulsifying agent (including soybeans)

Size: 200g (can) is good for 28 days whereas refill pack contains 214g which is good for 30 days

Now that I’m expecting a second son – which means I already have a toddler son – I am more inclined in using flats and ballet shoes than heels and wedges. Toddlers run, you know, and when it’s a boy, they run faster – you have to catch up, just in the nick of time before a disaster like vase breaking, etc is gonna happen. And at times when I had to wear heels – you know for that extra boost of self-confidence especially when presenting on a board meeting, or a meet up with clients and architects, I am used on reaching out for foldable shoes right after event.

It’s just so good to know that there are locally affordable foldable shoes, in-style without compromising quality and is proudly made in the Philippines, introducing Mishka Shoes.

Here are some of my favorite eye candies from this store!

One of the rising buffets in the metro is none other than the Vikings! Just by the name of it, I picture a humongous chunk of a dinosaur leg held by the massive hand of a Viking who just got home from sailing a massive water vessel! Whew! What a massive imagination! I know!


…and now I’m ready for a massive food tripping indulgence!

There are three buffet stations placed evenly apart that showcases extensive diversity of entrees; a wide variety of quality dishes from different cuisines.


This was my first time on Vikings, SM Megamall located at Mega Fashion Hall. The elegant dining area was just as huge as the buffet stations with modern and comfortable furnitures for best buffet experience.


I adore this abstract-striped ceiling. It’s cool, modern and very artsy!

They offer a wide variety of food palates, from fresh seafood to juicy Angus steaks!

I love the DIY pizza! Loads of pineapple and bell pepper pizza please!


Of course I wouldn’t pass my chance to serve babe his favorite ingredients on his pizza


– black olives and button mushrooms! :D

Another favorite of mine is the bottomless Shabu-Shabu where you could create and choose what ingredients to put. Seafood with lotsa corn please!


My dad’s favorite Japanese sushis are here too, including the sashimi. I have to skip this though, sashimis’ not a pregnant food.


I just wish they have more soup selection. I want creamy mushroom soup that night and all they have were a sour broth of Sinigang na Manok and Crab Soup.

You want to be a Viking for a day and eat like one? Well, first off, you have to get a reservation especially if you’ll come with your entire clan, or entire class, or entire office floor. Get it? Queue on the waiting list is a pain in the butt especially on holidays plus if you will go there by batch and you are in the waiting list, do not expect to be placed on a long table! The staffs are very friendly, they would even suggest what you should get on your DIY palate, plus they will recommend what’s best.
