Chatime+TGIF+ Temptation Island = Ruby Tuesdays!

Its Ruby Tuesday! I just needed to get my nails & wax done for the day and Kat T. (college barkada) accompanied me the entire afternoon before meeting thee girls (Bianca, Tanya, JR, O'neal) for some Temptation Island fever. After my girlie duties Kat needed her "chatime" fix to resolve her erratic mood so we headed to Landmark to grab her milk tea fix... 

First impression was "holly crap!" what a long line! business must be doing well and they have those queue buzzer like the ones they have in Shake Shack in NY which is very efficient although the waiting area is limited so its an inconvenience to the passersby. Taste good! slightly on the sweet side thou.

my first Chatime and I must say "two thumbs up!"
Remake of  Joey Gosiengfiao's 1980 Temptation Island. It was an entertaining film to watch of course can't be compared with Joey Gosiengfiao's 1980 Temptation Island original but sure was easy on the eyes...
 Then after we headed to Bracino's for some nightcap...
I love it! Jamon Serrano with Manchego cheese on top @ Barcino's

Ouch baby...

Today, I had my sclerotheraphy. The injection didn't hurt at all. partially, I have high tolerance with pain. although, my right leg was treated with laser... that did hurt! the pain can be compared perhaps when your having your warts cauterized on your face by your dermatologist. 1st they put an anesthetic topical  cream for about 30mins to make your skin numb and then ice it to add extra numbness then laser procedure is being done directly on top of target area.  Easy breezy! Right? The tricky part is I have to wear this tight compression socks for 2weeks + the bruising (hermit mode).

I have yet to observe the following days and blog more about it.

After I came back from US the pain seems less bearable 5minuntes of idle standing would trigger some pain behind my knee. It worsened about a week ago that even when I'm laying down before going to bed It began to hurt more. Hence, I've decided to have my veins checked.

I took notice of my varicose when I was in high-school. My dad took me to a Chinese doctor who practice eastern medicine. He prescribed me his own Chinese herbal medicine in a capsule form. I think I've been taking it for almost a year or so it worked wonders & effectively but the result was slow. My varicose issue came up again while I was in NY last spring of 2011. My spider viens starts to be much more noticeble and during prolonged standing my calves starts to hurt...

So what is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformations (vascular malformations) and also those of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink. In adults, sclerotherapy is often used to treat varicose veins

In Theatre: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Can I just say one word?! it's AH-MAZING!!!! I cried buckets towards the end of the movie. I find the 2nd installment of the Deathly Hallows fantastic! Being a Harry Potter fan the ending was so perfect. satisfactory to an avid harry potter book reader. I guess the director decided to add some cherry on top to make the finale sweet. True to the its core. I can watch the last installment over and over again. I wish it didn't have to end :C'''
