It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! With cheers and jeers from our peers just as the holidays are about to commence on again I could not help but be thankful for the year that was 2017 where a lot of changes, challenges, learnings and memories have changed my life 🙂
Just last week I was able to finally walk up the stage of the Henry Lee Erwin Theatre to get my Master’s in Business Administration Diploma as I shook the hand of Fr. Villarin, the President of the Ateneo Loyola Schools. 🙂 It was a surreal feeling since it finally dawned on me that after 3 years of going to night class and taking a leave from work to focus on my thesis, I now have more time to focus on my other pressing priorities and can already move on to greater things since I have more control of my time 🙂
If you’ve been an avid reader of my blog since way back 2014 you would know that I am always on the lookout for new massage places and spas since after a long and tedious week after work we also deserve to pamper ourselves by relaxing and unwinding.
Some people do this by watching movies with their SO’s or friends while others like me prefer to lie down and have my whole body kneaded and have the knots in my muscles loosened up by deep probing long strokes of my masseuse. So imagine the flicker of light again in my eyes when I received another invite from Aldous, this time around it wasn’t to try out a new food joint but to try out the services of this newly opened spa along the confines of Pasong Tamo.
Of course, I confirmed my attendance immediately and turned on to Waze to check out where this place was exactly located. Since I wasn’t really familiar with the South area I decided to book an Uber instead, that way it would be faster for me to get there since I assumed that the Uber driver should know better than me with regards to the location of the place and it would lessen my tension since I wouldn’t be the one behind the wheel amidst the traffic in the streets.
The past few weeks had been a blur of activities but nonetheless fun 🙂 Aside from getting my feet wet again in the Corporate setting a lot of events in my personal life had also transpired.
With January done the love month now ushers in a lot of events and exciting adventures for all the couples and single ladies too like the hot air balloon festival in Clark Pampanga wherein rumors say is going to be the last show since developers plan to develop the area to a more profitable business. This one I should not pass up. Aside from that I have also booked myself to another beach vacation come the second quarter of this year. Can’t wait to go snorkeling again and see the aquatic wonders under the seas 🙂
But before I get ahead of myself once again due to my giddiness and excitement. Let me first recount one of the most relaxing spa sessions I had just last week along the confines of Paranaque. Despite me braving the arduous traffic I must say it was all worth it upon arriving to the place. Read on to find out more…
After coming from a much relaxing vacation in the shores of Coron. I am definitely back again to the daily grind and with so much to do on a daily basis I cannot resist the urge to go to a nearby spa and of course pamper myself once again because we girls deserve it 🙂
So when I got an invite to drop by the Media Launch of the newest face of Blue Water Day Spa, I just knew that this is something that I just would not want to pass up. I immediately braved the car ridden thoroughfares of EDSA to get to Luxent Hotel where the launch was held.
My schedule is running like crazy these past few weeks so I have to slow down and unwind once in a while or else everything would go haywire and I would not be able to deliver on time with all my pressing demands. 😦
Since I am still trying to catch up with my backlog with regards to blogging since obviously I missed this big time! 🙂 I will start with baby steps and will publish at least one post per day to keep you updated on what adventures and new finds I embarked on for the past months or so.
So for starters let me first start with an overdue post which happened last April 2015. We just recently celebrated our anniversary P and me. Another achievement unlocked for us and because of that I would like to add another song here in this post which greatly encapsulates the year that has been for us.
Ring a bell? That’s precisely because it’s those three words which gave rise to one of today’s most sought after reality TV Shows which aims to discover fresh new talents out there in the goal of eventually making them into bright young stars of their generation and eventually gaining them hordes of fans along the way. (I love this show!)
Blogging for the past 3 months has already given me a lot of opportunities and loads of experiences worth noting. 10 years or 5 years down the line I would never regret starting my first blog post and documenting my experiences on a daily basis. Not only has it given me countless opportunities and “experiences” it has also generated me friends from all over.
I have made friends with some esteemed You Tubers, Food Bloggers, to some fashionable beauty and lifestyle bloggers. Everyone has a story to share, if we only took a moment from our very busy schedule to hear out their heart wrenching stories and be inspired as how they were made to the persons they are now.
Since today is my rest day I will get back to blogging on some new movies I watched over the past week, new joints I visited and also some articles which caught my attention these days because aside from it being my creative outlet I also have fun jotting down and sharing my ideas and experiences to others as well.
So here goes. Since I love getting myself massages even during my college days I usually search for new and affordable massage places and invite my friends or my Mom to have a massage session with me once in a while. We also need to have a breather and a break from the daily pressures of work and our other extra-curricula that we do on a daily basis so what better way to unwind than to have a hearty meal and some good old massage to target your pressure points right? 😀 It will definitely make you feel rejuvenated afterwards. Some of the Spa’s I have tried before are: Wensha Spa in Manila, The Spa in Acropolis/ Corinthian Hills, Ton Ton Traditional Thai Massage, Body Delight Spa and others I cannot remember since I was already too tired to take note or maybe too overwhelmed with the massage.
This is a follow up post to my previous post about our UST event which transpired from 11am-4pm. We met up around 9am to do some final touches on our props and also gave some allowance for our travel time. After the event we were so exhausted and I wanted to do something relaxing. (Massages always gave me that fuzzy, warm and relaxing feeling after a long and tiring day). So I suggested to Pat that we try out this massage place at E.Rod since it’s quite near to their place so it’s quite convenient for him and less of a hassle.
We came across this massage spa called “Body Delight” where we availed of their packages since they had a promo for 599 which was inclusive of a whole body massage, an ear candling session and also a hot stone massage. Pat wasn’t really a fan of massages but he stayed there with me and decided to have a spot massage instead wherein they target various parts of your body where you feel you’re most stressed. (I think he had a head massage and a foot reflexology massage). Thanks Love for sticking it our with me throughout the whole thing 🙂 hehe.
