Leading telecommunications company Globe Telecom has joined the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in showcasing the beauty of Philippine forests and in encouraging the public to be part of responsible tourism and proactive reforestation.




Globe employees took part in DENR’s Bike.Hike.Plant 2017 tree-planting initiative organized by the Forest Management Bureau to celebrate Arbor Day and the 154th anniversary of the Philippine Forestry Service.  The event was conducted to inspire various stakeholders to take care of the forests as well as widen the network of forestry champions to include bikers and hikers.

The volunteers participated in a 30-km bike and trek activity that runs from the DENR Region 3 Office in Government Center, Maimpis, San Fernando City, Pampanga up to Mt. Arayat National Park. Over 1,000 participants biked around the city and hiked up to the chosen area to plant seedlings of various indigenous and agroforestry tree species.

At the same time, Globe provided Libreng Charging stations during the event to serve everyone who joined the celebration.

“Environmental sustainability is one of the immediate responsibilities of Globe especially in the face of global warming.  Thus, aside from reducing and managing the impact of the company’s business operations on the planet, Globe also invests on environmental protection and partners with various organizations, particularly on reforestation programs to reduce our ecological footprint and mitigate the drastic effects of climate change,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe SVP for Corporate Communications.




Earlier, Globe volunteers also supported DENR’s Earth Month activities such as the coastal clean up in Las Pinas Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA), the mangrove tree planting activity in Calatagan, Batangas, and watershed ecosystem awareness in Norzagaray, Bulacan.

In 2016, Globe has invested P2.371 million on total environmental protection such as reforestation programs, solid waste manage, and hazardous waste disposal and treatment.  It has also donated P1.4 million as initial grant for 13,500 seedlings to non-profit organization Hineleban Foundation which advocates environmental conservation and livelihood development.

The Mansion: Going Beyond Hotel Rebranding

 

 

When I was in college, it was hard not to look back at Sarabia Manor Hotel and Convention Center as you pass by. After all, a decade and more years ago, this hotel was then an imposing structure in Iloilo City. Grand and big where “it” crowd parties ( then called, ” disco” or “clubbing”), and its restaurants, where couples to enjoy romantic dates, were named as one of the best in the country. The hotel was then the only choice for those who want to stay in a luxury hotel in Iloilo and where  companies used to hold their conventions and events.

Along the way topped with new competitions, the hotel may have lost a little of its grandiose reputation. Still, it is undeniable that the name still rings a bell and people choose to remember its upscale appeal.




 

The Mansion redefines customer value

Bringing not just back its old glory but setting the bar higher, Brightside Properties and Resorts, Inc acquired the property in early 2017 promising massive developments for the next 3-5 years. The family behind Brightside Properties and Resorts has been in the steel industry for half a century and The Mansion is their first ever venture in the hospitality industry.

Our hotel will redefine customer value, where comfort is premium and everybody is relaxed and at ease; where engaging service is synonymous to an all-around pleasant and singular experience,” said Mr. Noel Sinclaire P. Sy, Chief Operating Officer of Brightside Properties and Resorts, Inc.

The Mansion was formally launched last August 17 in the newly refurbished Kalantio Hall. The new name was a thrill and I personally like the name, The Mansion. After all, the city of love is home to old mansions and heritage homes. Purple and gold colors dominate that night symbolizing how the new management wants their guests to be treated –  with luxury and royalty.

 

 

More than a change of name

I have seen the major facelifting operations the night before the launch when I attended a school event in one of their function halls. More than the renovations, it was easy to spot the changes one of them was the food served during our parents’ assembly, the good impression continued during the launch with yes, great food all 300 guests devoured that night.




A quick media tour around the property where renovations and refurbishing operations are continually taking place. The lobby was given a minimalist modern look.

 

As a convention center, The Mansion has seven function halls and three boardrooms. See the Chinese-Filipino interiors of the renovated boardroom.

 

During the press conference following the brand launch, Noel Sy shares the impeccable team behind The Mansion coming from luxury hotels and top names in the industry.  What can we expect from The Mansion? Sy states that it will be ” a 3-star hotel with 5-star service“.

From the initial changes of the structure and food and seeing the team behind The Mansion, I am looking forward to what lies ahead. I’m looking forward enjoying their pool over great food and continuously patronizing Freddy’s now Freddy’s Bar + Kitchen.

Most of all, I’m looking forward spending a staycation in one of their renovated rooms, blogging about it as well as recommending The Mansion as hotel of choice for my family, friends, and you, dear readers.

Hey Sugar! Confession of a Waxing Virgin

P_20170802_115540

 

No, I’m not talking about Brazilian wax. Not yet. I’m talking about the usual waxing procedures like underarm and legs.

Hair used to be a big part of human body. Body hair was our natural coat for cold weather, thick eyebrows against dust and sweat. But with modernity, we practically don’t need our human hair that much. More than cosmetics, getting rid of our excess hair has become part of grooming.




I’ve tried waxing once using a OTC product marketed for home use but it was a total disaster that I succumbed to the big innovation of the 1700s-1800s – the razor. Tweezing doesn’t work for me and I think it is not advisable as it causes ingrown hair. Besides, I certainly don’t have time to pluck! So I was enslave by Mr. Razor from my eyebrows to my legs for decades…not until Hey Sugar! came.

 

I’ll never shave again

Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon is named after sugar-based products they used especially for their wax. One of the reasons why most people don’t wax especially in the Philippines is we get intimidated by the thought of waxing. And then the usual question, “ Does it hurt?“.




No it doesn’t. Especially for kikay girls who have been martyrs for the so-called ” tiis ganda“, waxing and even eyebrow threading is painless. The decor of Hey Sugar Waxing Salon strips away any notion that waxing salons are house of horrors. Pretty right?

@heysugar_waxingsalon's is so dainty! #waxingsalon #heysugar #hairremoval #wax #girlthing #beauty

A post shared by Valerie Caulin 🇵🇭 (@writervalerie) on

Our friends from Hey Sugar Waxing Salon invited me along with my fellow Iloilo bloggers to get waxed. The dainty interiors I think helps in settling the nervous nerves of waxing virgins that you’ll be looking forward to your service.

The salon has private rooms where I had all of my services – underarms, legs, eyebrow threading, and  eyelash perming. Yeah, I totally indulged! This is no torture room. I haven’t heard anyone screaming from the other rooms either.

 

P_20170802_115111

 

These chairs are for eyebrow threading, facial hair waxing, etc.

P_20170802_115104

 

Eyebrow Threading

One of the most popular services offered by Hey Sugar!, all girls should have a regular appointment for eyebrow threading. I know the new trend of microblading, I would love to have that but it is really costly.

I have mastered forming my eyebrow and maintenance like eyebrow threading accentuates the shape.

P_20170802_120816_BF_1

 

Painless and the shape was different. I shape my brows with a small eyebrow razor and even trim it with small scissors but the shape that threading gave was different. I took this photo after my threading with my eyelash perming – which is a another service to try!

 

Hey Sugar eyelash perming means I don’t need an eyelash curler. One application of my trusted mascara and viola! Thick, ready-to-party lashes. I will write a Hey Sugar Eyelash perming review next time.

Going back to eyebrow threading, I love how my brows looked that I went out without using my eyebrow pencil. Natural kilay is “lifer”! Unpainted eyebrows, made me feel that I looked younger. 😀

If you really want to focus on your brows, check your nearest Happy Brows.

Stripping it off

Those unwanted hair – underarm and even the legs. Do girls still pluck their kilikili hair? I’m cringing right now. Sorry. It is not advisable, ladies and what a waste of time!I know the benefits of waxing over shaving and with Hey Sugar.

I know I will be in good hands. NSFW alert!

P_20170802_122436_BF

 

Before your appointment, let it grow. I know, it is yucky with bushy armpits, but it will be less painful ( for those with low pian tolerance) and easier for the staff to strip off.  The girls were meticulous, after waxing, they thread the hair that was left. I love watching my kilikili after!

Now for the legs. I’m not into shaving my legs because, luckily, my strands are not thick. But I tried it at Hey Sugar! for smoother legs.




Try the hot wax. It is not hot but lukewarm. The cold wax they say is for those with tiny hair but I think cold wax takes longer. Again, not painful. The white substance is baby powder. They apply it to see the hair. Again, they thread any unstripped hair.

 

P_20170802_125029

 

It was day of pampering. Waxing at Hey Sugar and had my nails and foot spa at Nailaholics that same afternoon. Oh, I was such a happy mama!

It was weeks ago since I had my waxing and I did see thinner hair growing back. I felt less of a monkey. hehe.I’ll be back on my next waxing appointment this week and I can’t wait to be hair-free again.

Head to your nearest Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon now. For those in Iloilo, visit them at theLower Ground Floor of SM City Iloilo ( new wing), beside Nailaholics. Ms. Rachelle and her team will take care of you.

Manila Symphony Orchestra Set to Perform in Iloilo

 

 

Music like it has never been played before will soon be heard in Iloilo with the coming of the Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO).
This 55-piece world-class ensemble conducted by Prof. Arturo Molina,  is set for  two performances with a diverse repertoire in its premiere with the Iloilo crowd.
Slated on August 25, 2017, the orchestra will present “Sweet Symphonies: Bach vs. Beatles” at Molo Church while the concert dubbed as “Soundtracks and Symphonies” is scheduled on August 26, 2017 at the Iloilo Convention Center.  Ilonggos will have an inspiring experience of orchestral music that features soundtracks from American and Filipino hit movies.
“Iloilo was once the center of culture and the arts in the Philippines. We have started promoting our visual arts and now, we will focus on the performing arts,” according to Sen. Franklin Drilon, an Ilonggo senator who is a major catalyst in the on-going rapid developments in the city and province.
This musical treat of international standards aims to spark the interest of the local talent pool and a move towards a grander vision for Iloilo and the Ilonggos. It collaborates with the advocacy of the MSO as a vital contributor to the appreciation and enjoyment of music by people from all walks of life.
MSO was established in 1926 by Viennese conductor Alexander Lippay. It is one of the oldest orchestras in Asia and continues to enrich the Filipino’s vibrant cultural life through fine music.
Inquiries about the concerts may be directed to ILED office (33) 335-0333 and 337-8341.

Me Time at nail.a.holics

SAILORSCLUB

 

Do you know why moms flock every salon in town? More than beauty, salons provide us with temporary respite from the hustle and bustle of motherhood. From hair to nails, these salons are sanctuaries and retreat spaces for us.




A nice manicure and pedicure is a lovely treat and we are lucky that these services are affordable in the Philippines. However, these services are not regulated especially when it comes to hygiene. I had my own experience of enduring an excruciating ingrown in my big toe from a bad service and heard horror stories of clients getting fungal infections from dirty tools.

Thus, you have to choose more than a nail expert but a trusted name in the industry. Find a nail salon with a name they themselves take pride and cherish to stay on top of the industry hereby providing nothing but the best from hygiene to over-all experience.

When it comes to nails, nail.a.holics is the name to trust.

P_20170802_100837

With almost 10 years of experience under their belt, nail.a.holics is no doubt the country’s go-to-urban nail and spa destination. Finally, the nail expert has arrived in Iloilo with their spacious and Hamptons-themed nail salon at the Lower Ground Level of  SM City Iloilo.

The trademark interior of nail.a.holics

P_20170802_100748

You will love the space. Even if you are beside someone else, you don’t feel someone is trespassing your personal space. If you are with your bff, mom or spouse, this is your best spot.

P_20170802_100802

With freelance writing, kids, and a spouse who often goes on out-of-town business trips, pampering sessions are things I can’t say no. Because, hey I deserve it!

” Your hands and feet never take a day off so take care of them” – Tammy Taylor 

 

nail.a.holics offers more than manicure, pedicure, and foot spa. This is the advantage of going to a nail salon rather than the generic beauty salon as they specialize in nails. When you visit your nearest nail.a.holics branch or check out their website, you will be impressed with the different options when it comes to services and packages that will suit your specific needs.

I picked Lush Lagoon, a package of manicure, pedicure, and foot spa with foot massage.  A big advantage of going to nail.a.holics is their staff – well-trained and professionals. My nail technicians were Anjil and Rechel.

P_20170802_101718

It has been eons since I had a foot spa, you can just imagine the callus I had. The hand massage was soothing for me who types all day. At this nail salon, they use a Korean brand nail polish and for a small additional fee, you can have OPI nail lacquer.

P_20170802_101210

Always look for the steriliser in every nail salon you go to. I like how nail.a.holics show you that they are sterilizing the exact tools they will use for your service.

P_20170802_100909

I chose OPI for my nail polish. Next time, I will try their gel manicure and write a separate review. And maybe not very soon, I will try nail art – I never tried this nail trend.

P_20170802_100857

My package took an hour and a half and it was soothing. Even if they didn’t turn off the lights, the seats were soft and I truly had a quick nap and relaxed my busy mind. I took this photo while I had my leg waxed at Hey Sugar.

P_20170802_130052

As a one-stop shop for anything about nails, you can purchase and use other products like Zoya, famous for being a formaldehyde-free polish.

P_20170802_100932

Other products you can buy at nail.a.holics are these product line of Argan Oil.

P_20170802_100918

Thank you nail.a.holics for the pampering time and for the beautiful nails. It is hard to find a nail salon you can trust and I’m glad you are here in Iloilo.

Gourmet Dimsum Cafe: A Taste of Singapore on a Budget

 

The continuing growth of the restaurant industry in the city opened the doors for the locals to enjoy food beyond local cuisine and more ” common” international cuisines like Chinese and Italian. They say food is the best way to get to know a particular culture and one of my latest food discovery is Gourmet Dimsum Cafe where you can dine Singapore-made dim sum at affordable price.

P_20170715_150525

 

Gourmet Dimsum Cafe is one of the restaurants you can find in Southpoint, SM Iloilo’s dining strip and Iloilo’s new favorite hangout. I think there are only two ( including Gourmet Dimsum) Singaporean restaurants in Iloilo but Gourmet Dimsum Cafe is the affordable choice. Thus, you can enjoy Singaporean dim sum and more without waiting for your pay check.

P_20170715_152850

 

Singapore cuisine itself reflects their multi-cultural society – Chinese, Malay, and Indian. Majority of the food especially the dim sum are all made in Singapore and flown to Iloilo fresh for locals to enjoy.




I had a great selection of Shao mai from Black Pepper Chicken Shaomai to Chicken and Prawn Shaomai.

P_20170715_151808

 

Prawn Har how ( more commonly called, Ha kao)

P_20170715_152549

 

I like the kid-friendly size of their Mini-Chicken Barbecue Bun

P_20170715_152446

 

Let’s explore Singaporean cuisine further with this fried buns. Made me miss kaya toast though.

P_20170715_152536

 

A staple Indian food, roti is a significant part of Singaporean cuisine. You will love this Roti Onion Paratha with chocolate, cheese pimiento, and curry sauce.

 

P_20170715_151607

 

Roti and fried egg, drizzled with honey! Perfect for breakfast but I think you can have this anytime you like.

P_20170715_155156

 

Part of Singapore’s Malaysian heritage, try their laksa. I haven’t had laksa since Malacca.

 

P_20170715_155144

 

And what is Singaporean cuisine without Chicken Hainanese? The food presentation may need some work. I thought it was a flop but my food buddies said it was good especially the sauce.

P_20170715_155249

 

For dessert, we had this. Apologies, I forgot its name.

 

If you are looking for something different to try in Iloilo, or craving for Singaporean dim sum, laksa, or roti, visit Gourtmet Dimsum Cafe now!

Food, Drinks, and Music at SPICY ELEMENTS

P_20170715_175027

 

When you’re a certified sweet tooth, you don’t have to explain how you feel about spicy food. Yet, I have learned to find a way to embrace it – enjoying authentic spicy food. I have tasted Thai food and other spicy dishes that made me appreciate this kind of flavor, even find it delightful when my ears seem to exhaust the heat.

What I detest are those recipes that are not made to be spicy but transformed into something hot by simply adding a ton of chili. Cooking is a science, people! As I told someone who deconstructed a food into something spicy this way-  ” Why don’t just just chew a kilo of chili?”

 



In the Philippines, Bicolano dishes are known for their food that ” kicks”. This type of cuisine serves as a beautiful contrast to our usual sour or salty dishes. When looking for this kind of flavor in Iloilo,dine at Spicy Elements, one of the restaurants in Southpoint, SM City Iloilo.

This restaurant greets you as soon as you get out of the Cinema Level of the SM City Iloilo.

Dining at Spicy Elements

Perhaps the most common Filipino spicy food we know is Bicol Express and it is one of Spicy Element’s best sellers.

P_20170715_181735

 

Though not part of the plan, I requested to try their Laing ( thank you chef!). The first time I tried laing was in Tagaytay and it was a total flop and it took me years to try Laing again but most of them were tweaked. I took the opportunity while at Spicy Elements to try authentic Laing.  This is Spicy Elements’ Laing con Lechon.

P_20170715_183234_1

 

And it was the perfectly spicy but it became too much for me with the Bicol Express. Don’t fret, I just have low tolerance when it comes to spicy food. I know my husband ( who loves anything spicy) will love their Laing. I love how I can feel the texture of the taro leaves and the savory mix of the lechon kawali.

If you’ve been skipping Spicy Elements because you thought they only serve spicy dishes, you have mistaken. Well, me too – guilty! Spicy Elements has a wide variety when it comes to their menu. This is what we had with my fellow Iloilo Bloggers.

 

P_20170715_182415_1

 

You see, their menu is not solely for spicy ones but if you crave for Bicolano feast, visit Spicy Elements. Let me show you what we had.

This is Chicken Galantina – an upgrade of our classic Embutido, I guess?

P_20170715_181447

 

A sure winner if you dine with your kids – Backribs!

P_20170715_181636

 

We also had Seafood Tortang Talong

P_20170715_181352

 

Crab Relleno

P_20170715_181805

 

 

A drink or two at Spicy Elements

P_20170715_175133

 

When looking for a place to grab a drink in Iloilo without rowdy teenagers around, Southpoint offers the best place. Spicy Elements for me is the best place to enjoy music, drinks, and a good meal all in one.  They have a well-stocked bar to serve you different alcoholic drinks.

They let us try their two drinks – Beergarita and Bull’s Eye.

Good for sharing but I was the one drinking it. I love it!

 

This drink was new to me and it was fun learning how it should be drank. Basically you have two shots of vodka and Jagermeister with a big mug of beer. You either one of them and the other one goes down mixing with the beer. Drink your chosen shot and the beer mixture becomes the chaser. Cool eh?

P_20170715_182438

 

If don’t drink, Spicy Elements offers non-alcoholic drinks with their milkshakes as must-tries.

When looking for a restaurant where you can stay longer over drinks and music, reserve a table at Spicy Elements! Thanks for having us!

Davao-Kuala Lumpur Flights from AirAsia

Photo from AirAsia Facebook Page

AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline, has announced its latest route to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with four times weekly direct flights from Davao commencing 21 January 2018.

Operated exclusively by AirAsia Berhad (flight code AK), the new route marks as the fourth direct route from the Philippines to Malaysia after Manila, Cebu and Kalibo.

The launch event was attended by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes, DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez, Ambassador Alfredo Yao, one of the Filipino investors of AirAsia Philippines and AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said, “We see Davao City as a major point of growth in the international market, especially with agriculture being the city’s largest industry. Our aim for the city is also to grow it to become a hub for financial, tourism, service and education in Mindanao. The introduction of the direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Davao could not be more timely and is a key step in this direction to empower local players across various economic activities.”

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes, who was one of the speakers at the conference said, “Davao has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first cities we flew to when we started our Philippines operations in 2012. In fact, Clark-Davao, which we pioneered, was one of the two maiden routes when we started AirAsia Philippines five years ago. Since then, we have worked to strengthen our network in Davao. In this year alone, we have launched new flights from Davao to Cebu, Palawan and Boracay, and enabled Fly-Thru via Cebu to international destinations such as Singapore, Taipei and Seoul.

6

“Today marks the start of the next phase of our commitment to Davao. We believe Davao has the potential to be the international gateway for Asean to the southern Philippines, beginning with this new route to Kuala Lumpur. We strongly support the development of cities outside Metro Manila, and we are confident that by increasing connectivity and accessibility to affordable air travel, AirAsia can help play a role in boosting economic growth in the south. We can’t do it alone and we need airports to share in the responsibility, but together we can make His Excellency President Duterte’s vision of a more prosperous Philippines come true.”

To celebrate the new route, AirAsia is all-in-fares from as low as Php99* one-way are available for booking from 21 July 2017 until 30 July 2017 for the travel period from 21 December  2017 to 28 August 2018. Visit airasia.com or use the AirAsia mobile app on the iPhone or Android devices to enjoy the special promotional fares.

AirAsia Philippines (flight code Z2) currently operates several flights from Davao to Manila, Clark, Cebu, Palawan and Boracay.

Kuala Lumpur or “KL” is the perfect representation of the harmoniously multi-racial Malaysia. From its humble beginnings of a tin mining city, the ‘muddy confluence’ has progressively transformed into one of the most developed capital cities of Southeast Asia. Kuala Lumpur’s world-famous landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC), and the surrounding attractions that host cultural elements from the various ethnicities represented in Malaysia are some must-visit sites when visiting the capital city. Places to visit such as the 421m tall KL Tower, Central Market (Pasar Seni), Petaling Street, KLCC, Malaysia Tourism Centre and Bukit Bintang are all accessible from the free GoKL bus. A day trip to visit other nearby attractions such as Port Dickson, Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands, Bukit Tinggi, Putrajaya, Batu Caves, and Sunway Lagoon are also ideal from the city centre.

Guests who wish to explore more of Malaysia can also take advantage of AirAsia’s domestic network to the idyllic resort island Langkawi; or fly further to the tip of Borneo Island Kota Kinabalu to marvel at Southeast Asia’s highest peak Mount Kinabalu, discover the mysterious Mulu Caves as well as dive into the world famous underwater world at Sipadan Island.
