Chub's Diner Challenge: Sting and I vs Food

Are you up for the challenge?
 Are you sure?

Here are the contenders... on the red corner we have these hungry pair of monsters.hehe 
Meet Sting everyone, my boyfriend, who is making a face at me >:O

and on the blue corner we have the Chubs undefeated burger challenge
One foot burger with a pound of fries and giant milkshake. (we split the milkshake into two)


We were totally defeated! We could not finish the whole meal.

Chub's Diner is a newly opened burger joint in Cagayan de Oro City. It is located at Corrales street near Xavier University. 
They serve delicious burgers, fries, milkshake and oh my favorite "All day breakfast" meals. You can definitely order breakfast meal here at anytime of the day. The prices are reasonable and the food serving are massive. They also offer unlimited brewed coffee or hot chocolate if I'm not mistaken, for every breakfast meal you order. 

They also have this challenge where if you could finish all of those food shown in the picture above (1 foot burger, 1 pound fries, and giant milkshake) in 15 minutes you get the meal for free. If you can't finish it then you have to pay 650 pesos. Oh you also get to choose the flavor of your milkshakes, what type of fries and dip you like, and how you like your burger to be cooked. We chose cookies and cream for our milkshake, Mexicali fries with salsa, and we had our burger patty cooked well done. 

From our experience, I think that for one normal person to finish that monstrous meal in 15 minutes is purely impossible. A professional eater could maybe do it. Nevertheless we really enjoyed the food and the place.

 The place was a bit small but it was cozy enough. The staff were accommodating and the service was okay. We only had to wait for our order for about10 to 15 minutes, which was not that bad because the patty had to grilled. I think the waiting time will depend if the place is packed with customers or not. The food was oh so delicious, the milkshakes was divine. I would definitely go back their again for their milkshakes because they have a couple of different flavors that I like to try out. The fries were just so so for me, but the burger oh my gosh! it was really mouth watering. It was so good!!! notice the number of exclamation points, that's how good the burger taste. It was juicy, a little bit spicy and it had the right amount of saltiness and sweetness that I love. Overall I would give the burger a 4.5 / 5 rating. My only problem with them is that there serving is so big that I can't fit them in my tummy.haha 

Up until now there is no one who holds the record yet, so go and give the challenge a try.

Products I've Used up... Will I repurchase?

As you may know, I usually hoard a lot of products due to my ever constant shopping trips and I do like to try out new things. It is hard for me to finish up products completely because I often switch products but, when I do finish products off I feel really good and accomplished. So here are the products that I've used up over the couple of months.

Opal One minute treatment "Anti-dandruff" - I do really love this product and there is no question that I will definitely repurchase it again. I has a nice sweet clean scent and it really does relieve my scalp from itching. I wash my hair everyday because Philippine weather is really hot and humid. I really like my hair to feel clean and fresh everyday. The downside from constant washing is it does leave my scalp dry and prone to flaking. I use this product every other day after I shampoo my hair to help condition my scalp and so far I've been loving it.

Nivea extra whitening anti-perspirant - This is the only anti-perspirant that really works for me. It keeps my underarms dry and it has a nice scent. Since it is an aerosol it gives a cool sensation when applied. I have not found an anti-perspirant that works for me other than this one but it is quite difficult to travel because of the airport security.

Beauche Toner - This is my all time favorite toner and my skin can't cope without it. I wish they have bigger bottles than the 120 ml ones because I go through them like crazy. I apply it morning and night and I feel like this toner helps control my skin from breaking out. This toner have a sweet candy like scent to it that I love. I totally recommend this toner and I could not live without it. It may be difficult to find it because it is not available in the local pharmacy or drugstore, they are only available on selected Beauche stalls and direct sellers. 

Beauche Clarifying Solution " Tretinoin Hydroquinone" - This product is a staple in my night regiment . I only this product at night after I use my toner since it is quite strong but it leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. I feel that it gets off the dirt that the cleanser and the toner didn't. I would definitely repurchase this product again.

Pyodontyl plus toothpaste - I got this one as a recommendation from my doctor beacause I have sensitive gums but I feel that it doesn't do much. It doesn't have a minty flavour so I'm not really sure if it does freshen my breath and I feel that my teeth looked somewhat yellow when I used it. I will probably not repurchase this one in the near future.

Revlon ColorStay active in "Ivory"- This foundation is not a match for my skin, it is too light for my skin tone but I don't want to waste it so I mixed it with my other foundation. I swear by the Revlon ColorStay foundation and I use it everyday but I will not repuchase this again because this one is not a match to my skintone. I however totally recommend the Revlon ColorStay line.

Maybelline Impact Express liquid liner - It is a felt tip liner and it is a pretty decent liner. It does not smudge and applies well however it does really dry out pretty fast. I will not repuchase this one in the near future because there are cheaper felt tip liners out there that are equally as good as this one. 

Stila Smudge pot in "black" - it is a great gel liner but it is ridiculously expensive. Mine dried out before I could completely use it up so I don't think its worth the price. There are other cheaper gel liners from Maybelline that would be just as good. I would not repurchase this one.

ELF eyelid primer - This is a decent eye primer. This one came in a pack of three from the holiday collection and I love it. It is inexpensive and it works great for daily wear. I would definitely repuchase this product again.

My go to Fall/Autumn Nail Polish

I switch among these 3 colors in the Fall/Autumn season. Every time I use these polishes my nails would just look sophisticated and edgy at the same time.

Revlon's "Naughty" - perfect for casual day outing
This polish changes color depending on the light, sometimes it would look gray, taupe, and purple. You definitely need to see the color of this one in person because this picture does not do it justice.

Revlon's "Bewitching" -  perfect deep berry red 
Perfect polish for those glamorous holiday parties.
 Orly in "Blue Velvet" - good for days when you want to look edgy but classy
When applied, the polish dries matte in about 10 seconds so I did not have time to clean the smudges out but I love the color. The name Blue Velvet describes the color and the finish well, it really does look like velvet from a far. I did put Revlon's top coat over the polish to give it some shine.
