Hello 2017

Hi guys. Long time no see.

First of all, i would like to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The past two months have been very tough for me alas the delay on the uploads and everything. Rest assured, i am okay and content and of course i would like to say THANK YOU for participating on my Giveaway last December. I enjoyed reading all your answers unfortunately some of the participants are not eligible to win because of the late submission. It would be unfair to others who already spared their time writing down answers before the due date.

I will announce the winners on my next post so stay tune.

Happy New Year 2017! May this new year brings us more prosperity, good health, and happiness! God bless xoxo!

December Update: WILL THERE BE ANYMORE GIVEAWAY?

Hello Everyone!

Sorry for the super duper late update but yes here I am safely sound. The Foodie Duos is still there — BB and CC are still going strong as ever even though there were delays here and there on the video uploads.

“Video Uploads? Where? On Instagram? Youtube?”

Incase you are wondering, yes we do have social media:

Instagram:

Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/user/wannamlwithu/videos

And yes, make sure you follow and subscribe to our Social Medias!

Anyhoo, in lieu of what’s happening for the past month there are some doubts whether CC should held another giveaway. it took her almost an entire month thinking about it and it led her to this conclusion: will there be anymore giveaway?

the answer? yes there will be giveaway but she is not quite sure yet.

why not sure? because of the gifts? because of the budget? because of the last minute preparation?

the answer: all of the above. and plus another issue that she has been dealing for the past month of which unfortunately she is still refused to disclose. (only closed friends are aware)

nevertheless, there will be another post regarding giveaway but she already hasย ideas on what type of gifts she will give:

EOS, Hershey's, Hot Cocoa Mix, NYX beauty, Coloring Book

Are you interested in winning those lovelies? stay tune to find out how!

The Foodie Duos: HALLOWEEN 2016

Who/what were you for this year’s Halloween?

The Foodie Duos were not in the mood to spend a lot of money yetย we stillย wanted to look totally COOL and AWESOME during Halloween.

First idea was Frozen. then CC realized that proper Elsa costume and her accessories would costs at least $40ish. Even with just an easy Olaf costume for BB it’ll cost at least $55-60 for both costumes. and plus the weather forecast for 10/30 would be thunderstorms and rains. so much for a nice night out. NOT.

Second idea was Star Wars Force Awakens. BB as Obi Wan and CC as Ray. Found a good deal for Jedi robe (with saber) and Ray tunic costume. HOWEVER, as soon as CC wanted to purchase those costumes, the prices were increased like 50%. and they still had to pay shipping fee if they wanted the costumes to be delivered by 10/29. NOT COOL AT ALL! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

flipping through Amazon, CC found a good deal on Jedi robes with less heavy materials. and also a good deal on Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber. 2 costumes and 2 sabers, it’ll cost her around $45ish. plus, they could do photos indoor without having to worry about the theme. and another plus, 2 day shipping is FREE!

Without any further ado, she ordered the costumes!

And how’s the result you may ask?

we LOVED it! seriously the minute we put on the robe we did not even take it off until like an hour later. LOL. yes it may not be the fanciest Jedi costume like the one they sell for ComicCon or Cosplay but it was worth the money! Jedi normally dresses very light behind the robe so we just went casual with the inner outfit. BB with his tshirt and jeans while I put on the light marigold orange sweater and jeans.

gotta be the best HALLOWEEN we’ve ever had! ๐Ÿ™‚

so how’s your Halloween this year, fellas?

So anyhoo, this time we were just enjoying some light dinner and some (not so light) snacks afterwards. And since it was early September so CC bought a big box of Moon Cakes to share.

Happy drooling ๐Ÿ˜‰
