What is so lovable about the Campus BDJ Planner is its ample writing space for each day of the year. I don't know with you but that's the first thing I look for in a planner.  I'm glad I found that in Campus BDJ.

                                                 Campus Belle De Jour Planner 2012-2013

I loooove taking down notes of just about anything I've learned from church, books and even the movies. If you're a habitual note taker like me, I'm sure you're gonna love this feature in Campus BDJ.

There are even some pages to help you keep track of how you fared in quizzes and other exams which I think is a good way to evaluate your performance on a regular basis.

When I saw these designs from the UNIQLO Philippines website, I can't help but remember this same top on popular Malaysian actress and model Carmen Soo who happens to be the lovely face of UNIQLO Malaysia.

Jessica Sanchez Delivers Three Powerhouse Performances In The Finale of American Idol Season 11! (With Latest Videos)

Just a few hours ago, Jessica Sanchez gave three powerhouse performances at the Season  Finale of American Idol which revealed her versatility, vocal artistry and soul to the fore.

For the first round, Jessica delivered a near flawless interpretation of a Whitney Houston original, "I Have Nothing" which was chosen for her by Simon Fuller, one of the show's creators and executive producers.

When asked about their opinions, Randy was the first to say that Jessica won the round to which JLo later on agreed to.

The second round however brought mixed reactions from the three judges, with only Steven left saying that the round belonged to Jessica in her moving interpretation of "The Prayer."


                                    Courtesy of Boom Fiyahiver on YouTube 

For the final round, Jessica picked "Change Nothing" as her final song of the night and her would be single if ever she becomes the next American Idol.

Sadly, all three judges didn't like her choice of song and gave the round to Phillip with his interpretation of Greg Holden's "Home" which even earned for him a standing ovation!

It Turns Out That Filipinos From Anywhere In The World Can Vote For Jessica Sanchez Thru Facebook! (Updated)

Since we now live in a flat world according to Tomas Friedman, it turns out that Filipinos from anywhere in the world, including us here in the Philippines, can vote for American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez via Facebook!

Here's how:

1.  Go to the American Idol Online Voting Facebook App.

2.  Simply press GO TO APP and then ALLOW.

3.  According to my blogger friend salmoncat, she heard from The Morning Rush with Chico and Delamar that the voting window for Filipinos residing in the Philippines happens this coming Wednesday, May 23, from 9 to 11 AM.

However, when you go to the American Idol Website, online voting via Facebook is strictly for those within the Continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands which is perhaps one of the reasons why Patrick Villavencio of Interaksyon.com was led to write Voting for Jessica Outside the US Is Cheating? which received mixed comments, mostly exasperated ones, from Filipino netizens.

No matter what your stand is on this particular issue, we can't deny the fact that Filipinos around the globe are rooting for Jessica to win especially now that she is up against a clear favorite, Philip Phillips, who has never been on the bottom three during the entire season.

What I strongly believe is that even though Jessica doesn't become the next American Idol, her AI album will most certainly be a hit! I also won't be surprised to find out that record companies will be fighting their way after that to signing her up under their label.



Jessica Sanchez Singing "My All"


Catch the Finale of American Idol Season 11 LIVE VIA SATELLITE on Star World, Skycable Channel 48 and on ETC, Skycable Channel 14, Destiny Channel 14 and Cable Link Channel 12 this coming Wednesday, May 23 at 6PM and Thursday, May 24, at 8 AM.

Conti's Pastry Shop & Restaurant Takeouts/Takeaways ♪♪♪ (Updated)

For Mother's Day, we queued up at Conti's Trinoma for some delish takeouts. It was our first time doing so and was sort of surprised to be handed down the roll number slip with 50 written all over it. It was only 1PM and the line was unbelievably long! After waiting it out for almost thirty minutes, we went inside the resto to place our order.

Here are some of our takeouts/takeaways that day:


                                                    Our first Conti's Cake To Go

                                                   Conti's Peach Walnut Torte Php 575

                                                            Mango Bravo's Sibling?


Since Conti's Bestselling Mango Bravo was already sold out at the time, the kind staff suggested their Peach Walnut Torte which according to her resembled my first choice to a tee. She was absolutely correct! Except for the mangoes, this particular cake has the same crunchy sansrival-like cake interspersed with rich cream, decadent peaches dotted with exciting walnuts all over. Anyone with a self-confessed sweet tooth will fall in love with this cake selection. 


Conti's Bananalicious Pie Php 650

All of us loved the buttery crust that provided the perfect structure for a medley of wonderful and delish ingredients on top of it: vanilla cream and banana chunks primarily highlighted by choco- caramel swirls and cashews.

                                                   Conti's Angel's Hair Puttanesca
FS (good for 8)    Php 425
PS (good for 15)  Php 810

                                                                 Very light pasta

This particular pasta is my absolute favorite! I'd like to echo what I've already mentioned in my previous post about Conti's: 
"The wonderful texture of the angel hair pasta is fused beautifully with fresh tomatoes, black olives, capers, a hint of anchovies and a sprinkle of olive oil for garnish. The tangy saltiness of the sauce cut through the fat for a surprisingly light and delightful taste."  


Mango Royal Salad
For sharing: Php 160
FS (good for 8) Php 415

Refreshing salad!

Another personal favorite! "Crisp iceberg lettuce draped in a creamy and super delish house dressing and topped with fresh mango cubes. I love how the light dressing sweetened up the greens and added a certain creaminess to it. The mangoes on the other hand offered a degree of decadence to this otherwise healthy dish."

Reminder: Waiting time is 1 hour for take-outs except for cakes and other pastries.

To help you decide which to order next, here's Conti's Take Home Menu:
