The Makeover Lounge

Everyone needs some pampering, agree? But for practical moms like me, it shouldn’t be too costly. That’s why I am recommending The Makeover Lounge, experience inexpensive, fuss free but first class services here!

The interior makes you feel relaxed. The white walls and blue furnitures will definitely calm you, especially after a stressful day at the office.

Upon entering, you will be greeted by the staff and asked what services you’ll be availing. Since it was a weekday and they were only attending to 1 client, I was immediately seated.

Don’t let these chairs fool you! These are high tech massage chairs. It even comes with a foot spa basin and it comes out with a push of a button! No need for palangganas (plastic basins) to be carried out.

It has its own water jet system too!

There are so many brands of polishes to choose from. From OPI, Revlon to Bench, they have it all. So many colors that I chose to just have the basic red from OPI. 😂

This was me feeling sleepy and super relaxed! Did I tell you that the chairs are massage chairs? All through out my mani, pedi and foot spa session, I was having my back massaged. It felt so good, kneading through my aching back.

After simple joys like this, I am recharged and ready to take on my mommy duties again!

Don’t feel guilty mommies, it is our right to feel pampered once in a while.

The Makeover Lounge is located at 81 Xavier Residences, City of San Juan.

Ang Huling El Bimbo 2019

One of the best musicals ever!!! First I want to thank my sponsors for our complimentary tickets, thank you so much Ann and Mac! 😘

Ang Huling El Bimbo’s story revolves around 3 friends and their journey in school and in life.

The whole team of Ang Huling El Bimbo made a good musical out of Eraserheads’ songs. Kudos to Mr Dingdong Novenario (writer) and Mr Dexter Santos (director)!

Even the set is amazing.

Eraserheads is the best rockband ever! More than 2 hours of Eraserheads’ music, it brought me back to the 90’s! It feels so amazing to still know the songs by heart!

A short video we took toward the ends of the show! Just can’t help it!

Everyone’s amazing! Shout out to Hector, Emman and Anthony! Of course to Tiyang Dely and Joy! 😘

Ang Huling El Bimbo is about friendship, there may be some tragedy, but there is ultimately forgiveness, hope, new beginning and love.

The look of 2 satisfied viewers!

Please watch it! Definitely worth it!

Ticket Prices as listed on Resorts World Manila’s website ↓↓↓

Ang Huling El Bimbo 2019 officially opened last March 1, 2019 at the Newport Performing Arts Theatre in Resorts World Manila.

GoodAh!

Nope, it’s not just lugaw, GoodAh boasts of an extensive menu, rice meals, noodles, congees and they also have desserts and drinks.

They even offer LUGAW REFILL for an affordable Php30.00 if you order any Lugaw variant.

Choose your own chair!

My hubby! 😍

I don’t even remember eating lugaw here at GoodAh at all. But it’s really Good Ah! You should try it!

Arrozcaldo at Php 84.00

Super sulit! Love the bits of chicharon on top. 1 pc of chicken leg. But even without the toppings, I love the taste of the lugaw.

Goto Classic at Php 84.00

Hubby loves it. He even said it’s better than my arrozcaldo. With bits of chicharon, assorted goto, and an egg!

It’s open 25 hours so you’ll always have time to drop by. The place is clean and cozy with its red and white interior.

The branch we visited is located at Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

La Lola evolved into a Cafe!

Anyone who has had a share of La Lola Churros would be happy to know that they now have a sit in cafe in Glorietta!

Quaint and cozy, it feels good to be hanging out here after a day of shopping, or even just meeting with friends.

Their menu consisted of the usual churros, rice meals, some pasta, sandwiches and both coffee and non-coffee drinks.

We already had a merienda / early dinner so we ordered just enough for sharing.

Starting off with the kids’ favorite, Churros with Chocolate Dip. Really best devoured when hot!

We were disappointed with how these 2 sandwiches came out.

For Php 195.00, the Ham and Cheese Croissant, smaller than we expected, doesn’t come with anything.

🔽🔽🔽

Just the same, for Php 295.00, the Lola Club wasn’t any better in size. My MIL kept on saying that it wasn’t even a whole square of a bread. 😂 Though I appreciate that it’s full of ham, cheese and veggies, not only bread! Tastes ok too!

🔽🔽🔽

The Carbonara Spaghetti, priced at Php 235.00, would have been worth it if they put a few pieces of real bacon plus the crushed bacon bits.

🔽🔽🔽

Instead of the sandwiches and the pasta, we could have ordered another Rice Meal like the Sweet Longganisa at Php 190.00. Comes with 2 yolk egg, 4 pcs of longganisa, garlic rice and a whole tomato!

✅✅✅

I wish La Lola would improve on the serving of their meals and sandwiches so that people would be able to say that it’s worth the price.

And they also not serve water. I am not sure if this is a practice. But as far as I know, cafes, especially those who serve sweet desserts and drinks, serve free water.

Too simple but so overpriced. Well, that’s just me. Go ahead and try La Lola Cafe. Located at 2nd Level Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City.

Thanks Traveloka!

I am not sure if I have announced here that I won at one of Traveloka’s Facebook hashtag games a few months ago!

I am an avid fan of Traveloka as I almost always book our hotels and airline tickets through it! Not only is it convenient and hassle free, it’s also cheaper than most travel booking companies. They always have these promos which slashes the prices by a few hundreds.

So back to my winning, since I booked my Taiwan hotel and airfare through Traveloka and they have this advertisement about a couple dealing with everyday life stress and a break, or a vacation rather, is all they need, I immediately thought of what me and hubby just went through. The Taiwan vacation we had is a breather for both of us.

I posted what I felt and that it also happened to us and my answer got picked by Traveloka and it was featured on their page.

This was my comment!

And then, I got picked!

This was the feature Traveloka made. Just like us, you may also want a breather too!

Traveloka gave me Php3000.00 Travel Voucher for my #TravelokaBestTripEver entry! Amazing right? Traveloka is the B.E.S.T!

See more of our staycation in the next few days! ❤

Merry Christmas! 🎄

Staycation @ Okada Manila

Omg! Had a chance to stay at one of Okada Manila’s luxurious rooms and boy was that a dream!

Pink hues everywhere! I love it!

The grand lobby starts off with decadent chandeliers in pink with colorful gems!

Hallways are as pink as well!

Once up in the hotel tower, the elegant chandeliers adorn the elevator lobby.

Same goes with the pathway to our hotel room!

Once you’re inside the room, you just don’t want to leave anymore! A room, more like a unit as big as this, costs so much. I checked the website and it’s about Php 18,000 plus plus for a night. So I am very thankful for my cousin and her friends for the chance to experience Okada Manila’s Junior Suite even for a night.

Are you ready?

A mini office greets you upon entering.

Then the receiving area.

There is actually a door going into the bedroom.

The luxurious bedroom with its own sofa by the foot of the bed.

The mini bar

The walk in closet

And of course, the spacious bath room with your very own jacuzzi bathtub and a wonderful view of The Fountain!

And although I am not the person who really likes IG worthy pictures of myself, I just couldn’t let the chance pass, so forgive me if I’ll indulge myself for a few pictures in the bathtub.

Thanks to my hubby for my pictures!

Another reason why I didn’t want to leave the room, everything is fully automated! There are 2 ipads you can use to turn on / off the lights, draw the curtains, change the channels of the television, choose from a list of movies or series, watch vloggers review Okada Manila, etc, etc… so much to do with the touch of a finger!

Of course, the kids wouldn’t let the bathtub gone unexplored as well!

After enjoying the tub, they moved to a bigger space and went down to the pool area.

Enjoyed the sunset while having some lemon water and chilling at the cabana.
