Terrific Thera-Fish Expirience at Tibiao Fish Spa Gensan

Just had and extremely exhausting past few months from prom season to grad season,running a dress shop wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I rarely find time to just chill and unwind. Luckily something new and exciting made its way to the tuna city, just this March 15, 2014, the Tibiao Fish Spa opened its tubs to the Generals. 

Tibiao Fish Spa started its fishy adventure from Tibiao, Antique back in 2009, their Gensan branch is their first branch in Mindanao, after becoming a hit also in Pampanga in 2012, where locals and tourist alike enjoy the fish-tastic therapy.

So when I was able to see an opening in my schedule I immediately took the chance to try this out and unwind. When me and my Mom got into the spa, we were welcomed by their hospitable and jolly staff.  Then we were asked to take off our shoes, since our feet have to be disinfected for health and hygiene reasons for the safety of both the customers and the fishes.

Mr. Flord Nicson Caliwag, General Manager and Franchiser of the spa walked us through our first fish spa experience. He's an avid fish collector, and a series of events led to an accidental discovery of the fishes capabilities. Tibiao Fish Spa is the first to use local fish for spa purposes. The fishes on their tanks are specially hybridized species that feed on dead layers of skin, once rough areas became smoother and softer , at the same time the ticklish feel you when the nibble on your feet, stimulate pressure points to relax the body and relieve stress.

When I finally immersed my  feet on the tub, I cant shake off the tickling feeling, as my Mom and I laughed, Mr. Flord mentioned that...

“Aside from the fish cleaning your skin, laughter itself is good for you. It relaxes the heart, boosts our immune system, and reduces the level of stress hormones. Plus, we all know it feels good to laugh especially in the company of our family and friends,”

The ticklish feel lasts only a minute or two, was shocked on how fast I got used to the feeling, you could feel the good vibes flowing through your veins. As if the fish are munching your stress away. The music  and ambiance also plays a huge role on the Tibiao Fish Spa experience. 

The time flew by, I didn't want to leave, but duty called, I had to go. After 30 minutes of fish nibbling action and relaxation, a relaxing foot massage turned out to be the cherry on top of the ice cream. 

The Tibiao Fish Spa offers specials on Wednesdays where they have 5 + 1, and birthday celebrants could go for free if they bring along a party minimum of 4 people. The fish spa exhibit will only be in Gensan for 3 months. So move those feet and feed them to the fishes at Tibiao Fish Spa fronting BDO at SM City Gensan.

Yummier break time with Jollibee KitKat Sundae Mix-ins!

I've been MIA from this blog lately, only been able to update via instagram and facebook, cuz I've been juggling a lot from my shop, my loves, and my column, that I rarely have time to blog. I have a love-hate relationship with being busy, thank heavens I was given a break.

Everyone's busy stalking someone on facebook/twitter, taking dozens upon dozens of selfies and some are just working hard and making their dreams come true, whether for at home, school or in the office. So having a break, even for just a second, away from the real world, we deserve to spoil ourselves even for just a moment.

Have a much deserved break with the new Jollibee Kit Kat Mix-ins, the latest mouthwatering dessert from the country's leading fast-food chain. A perfect blend of Jollibee's creamy vanilla ever so soft and fluffy, paired with Kit Kaat's crunchy chocolate delight, giving us more reasons to anticipate the break time bell.

The best part is, chocolate lovers can devour this awesome treat for only P38 how awesome is that!?!

What are you waiting for? Give yourself a break! This is available only for a limited time! So LEGOOOO

The force is strong in Rodarte 2014 RTW

The Rodarte 2014 RTW, are all about bringing up some childhood nostalgia. Designers Kate and Laura Muleavy showcase an 80's throwback, with different silhouettes, and their awesome awesome finale, with five dresses printed with Star Wars motifs, such as the Death Star, Master Yoda, the Suns os Tatooine, C3PO and Luke Skywalker. I could feel the force is stong on this collection.

As Laura would describe it, the idea is to bring to life "things that you would imagine you want to wear when you were younger". This Rodarte collection may be an blast from the past, it also gives of a glimpse into the future, since a new Episode VII, Star Wars film is set for release in 2015. Not to stay off topic but Jurassic Park 4 would also hit the theaters on 2015, talk about childhood feels.

May the force be with you,
