Hi guys! Just wanted to share my new do to y’all.. My hairstyle this time is a bit different because I finally decided to have a short hair. Ang init eh! Super! Hindi kini-keri ng kili-kili powers ko ang summer heat. Megad! So I decided to have a short hair.
Last month, when Jackie Go and I had a lunch date at Spiral we were given a gift certificates for a one session trial of Resolift and Ultralipo procedures at the Vietura Aesthetic Lifestyle which is also located at Sofitel, Manila. Then just a couple of weeks ago, I decided to try the Ultralipo procedures after pigging out during the Holidays because I guess that’s the best time to burn all the fats and calories I gained during Holidays, right?!
What’s your favorite reward for yourself after a long day and stressful day or week at work? Me, my ultimate reward for myself is spending my me-time at the Spa. I love being pampered at the SPA because it gives me so much relaxation and comfort. I used to go at the SPA at least twice a month, naka-set na yan hindi yan nagbabago. Because it feels so refreshing every time I go to the SPA and it feels good to go home when you release all the stress in your body. Do you feel that way too?
I’ve recently discovered a beautiful SPA near our office. It’s just two kembot and 1 tumbling away from my office. I discovered California Nails & Day Spa at Somerset Makati Ave. branch. O diba name pa lang sashal na.
…not the heavenly bliss that many see it for. Sometimes it’s cruel and you just have to live with it. So when the time comes that you feel like crying and you feel all alone just dwell on these quote from Mother Teresa, I hope it move you just the way it move me.
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
And also I want to share this song, it’s Who am I by Casting Crowns. It’s the song that inspired me during my most difficult and trying times. It’s like a prayer of hope to those who are helpless, confuse, and at loss. So feel free to listen and have a good time with the Lord. Remember the love of God for us is extravagant and he will never (ever!) leave you nor forsake you. 🙂
So chin up and move forward remember that life’s a beautiful thing and a greatest gift from God. Think of happy thoughts, there’s so much to smile about! 🙂
Happy Weekend, everyone! 🙂
Hello there! Last week, I was personally invited by Lara Parpan, the Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Health to participate on their upcoming event– “Women’s Health, Are You Game?” this coming Saturday, June 1 at the Music Hall, SM Mall Of Asia.
I met Lara at the Wyeth Promama event three weeks ago and I can say how physically fit she is! She is indeed a sporty type of woman and I admire her for being like that..not to mention very humble. 🙂
Anyway, here’s the good news! She is also inviting each and everyone to come and participate in this event! Now how good is that? So good!
Women’s Health Are You Game? is an all-day, feel-good festival that features the latest in fitness, nutrition, wellness, hydration and beauty! This year, WH is coming up with exercises like: SMRT-Core Circuit, Fit Into Your Jeans, Beyond Sculpt, Flexibility not Required and a lot more.
So what are you waiting for? Bring your girl friends and come and join the fun of an all-day feel-good festival! This is the best time to start working out!
And oh don’t forget to bring your exercise clothes! 🙂
Dancing is one of my passions (hindi lang halata, hehe), it is also a form of exercise. Belly dancing and modern dance (like hiphop, jazz, pop rock, etc) is what I like the most. Yes, I love belly dancing,but it seems like belly dancing doesn’t like me. Anyhoo, hubby and I used to go at the gym twice a week, one hour dance class is I guess enough for me to stay fit and at the same time to enjoy and have fun. I’m not a weight conscious or what , it’s just that I like to dance. Dancing gives an overall sense of my well being cause it really boosts my self-confidence and build my social skills. Sometimes, I feel really sexy when I’m dancing (ansabeeee?! Hayaan nio na kahit sa sayaw lang maging sexy. Haha), besides it’s not every time naman. Hehe When I was young I used to join the school dance production, I even join cheer dance competition, ganyan ako ka-adik sumayaw. Hehe Actually, Cj loves dancing too, that’s one of our common interests. We also noticed that Cyler loves dancing too, cause he used to jump and wiggle his body (May future kang bata ka!) whenever he hears music. #SigeNaNga!
Anyhoo, now that I’m a mother and a wifey, I know it’s hard to squeeze my time cause I need to spend most of my time with my family. But reality check- I’m only a HUMAN. I need a me-time too. And so I am trying to balance everything- my work, family, friends, including me-time. My family is the best stress reliever, but sometimes it is also important to give yourself a break. A time to reflect, to enjoy, and to do what really makes you happy. Remember that a happy wifey makes a happy home. They say that once you become a mother you can no longer have a social life, it’s definitely not true. You can still do what you want but not everything of course, you still need to give up something for your family. You just have to balance everything, remember that there is always time for everything. Bear in mind that having me-time will not make you a bad parent, you just need to set a limitation. Personally, dancing is part of my life, it also benefit my health. Besides being fun, dancing has many positive health benefits.
And here’s some of the healthy goodness of dancing:
• It benefits every part of the body, including the mind. The experts say that exercising causes the body to produce endorphins, chemical that can help a person to feel more peaceful and happy.
• And of course if you feel better, you will also look better.
• Achieving your desired weight can boost your self-confidence too.
• Improve posture and muscle toning.
• It benefits our heart and cardiovascular system.
• It reduces stress.
• It decreases a person’s risk of developing certain diseases like high blood, diabetes, cancer or any kinds of diseases.
• Dancing is tremendously beneficial in keeping us young. Who want’s to be forever young?! (Itaas ang paa at iwagayway!) #Kaloka!
I know it’s really hard to include exercise in your insanely busy schedule, especially if you’re a working Mom like me, but believe me one or two hours of work out is enough to maintain a healthy body and lifestyle. Remember, you need to be healthy for your family. So why don’t you give it a try, make dancing/exercise a part of your daily habit. You can also do it yourself at home, by simply stretching your arms and legs, or you can also dance together with your family whenver you hears music. It’s a perfect bonding time for your family too. There is also lots of available video about dancing and exercise, just simply browse the net. But still it’s important to check with your own medical provider before starting any new form of exercise, especially if you are over 40, pregnant or have medical problems.
I guess, that’s it pansit!
So gals and guys what are you waiting for? Let’s all dance to health!! 🙂
Oh dear, it’s another year for me! Two days from now and it’s my birthday again! Woo hoo! Hooray for the wonderful years of my life!

And I think, I could not ask for more, yan na ang pinaka-bonggang gift sa lahat! Umiral nanaman ang ka-dramahan ko! Oh gosh, parang kailan lang 12 years old palang ako, ngayon 13 years old nako. Hahaha! Oh walang ko-kontra, birthday ko ‘to! 😛
First and foremost , lemme say thank you to the following:

One of my favorite time is “me time”, for me it’s always a perfect time to relax, to enjoy, and to meditate. I usually go to “Lets Face It” spa salon in Glorietta twice a month. They’ve got everything that I want they have massage, facial, mani, pedi, etc. I love pampering myself after a long tiring day from work, I guess everybody want it too. Yun na lang yung treat ko sa sarili ko. Why not diba? Ang saya umuwi ng bahay ng hindi pagod. Tapos makikita ko pa yung hubby and baby ko pag uwi ko, ay perfect na perfect na ang araw ko! Actually today, I supposed to go to the gym but then bigla akong inatake ng katamaran! Shocks! Ang hirap pala labanan! Hehe
Btw, Here are my rituals when I’m in the spa:
These are the top 3 things that I love to do when I’m having me time. Now I feel much better now.
How do you spend your “me” time? 🙂
Gotta go sago!
P.S. to Cyler and Cj: Pauwi na si Mommy! Can’t wait to see you guys! 🙂
