Spa and Massage Day


After the dinner date with my husband (see previous post Date to Remember), we wanted to relax for a bit before our most awaited full body massage. We do not want to puke on the massage bed (if it is what it’s called) for we’re so full. I wonder why the ordered meal was heavy and surprisingly for my husband as well.

We went out of the Gayuma ni Maria cozy restaurant. And right at the front door is Silong Spa and Salon. I looked at the price list and find it practical unlike the other salons that do the same thing but asking for higher costs. This is evident now, I am thrifty.

We went in the Silong Spa and Salon. Ambiance is good, air-conditioned room and an accommodating personnel. He asked what service we needed. I answered, “Foot scrubs” and then smiled. He/She (I was not sure of the gender) pointed us to the next room where the service is usually done. It was another air-conditioned room with cheerful attendants. I asked for other services and their prices and settled on foot scrubs for me and my husband. We just wanted to relax a bit anyway just to give time for the feeling of being “Full” subsides.

We sat down and waited for the therapists to do their job while my husband and I were watching the television. It shows the Gangnam Style youtube video and had a short talk about it. Our kids dance to this tune whenever they hear it. Speaking of kids, their place has Kulit Bulilit Massage worth PhP150 only. They can also have Spa Party at the place with per head charges.

Over-all the service is good, another worth the price.

After the Foot Scrub, we hurriedly drove to West Avenue. We discovered a 24-hour Spa and Massage Salon. ZenAsia is located along West Avenue (just across Causeway), 2nd floor of the building after Music 21. We were lucky enough that there’s not much customers at that time. We were accommodated right on the spot. Excitement arises. It’s been weeks since we planned to have a massage but schedule/availability was not open to us. We had a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage. So, this is the night! Over-all good and again wallet-friendly. Felt so relaxed!


Date to Remember


My husband and I are celebrating our 3rd year of being together as a couple. September 11, 2009 it was, when we first exchanged our love to each other. We thought of trying something new to our palate. He searched for restaurants in Quezon City and found a very interesting one within Quezon City. Gayuma ni Maria it is. We are located in Bulacan at the moment so we do not want to go farther than QC. Here it is. I took some pictures of the place because I know I will surely post and share this day to the world.

We’ve never been to this place. But we never had a hard time looking for it. I admit we used Google maps and Navigation until we reached our destination. The parking area can accommodate 6 cars. It is hardly noticeable if you do not know the place. But to give a tip to the visitors, It is located just beside Silong Spa and Salon in Sikatuna Village, V. Luna, Quezon City. Business hours is 10am until midnight from Monday to Sunday. This is the google map link.

Their menu is quite different because it suggests a different title for their food. I always prefer beef menu so I ordered the Secret Lovers.  What is it? From the menu it says, “Rich braised beef pot topped with mashed potatoes and served with rice.” The menu description is hard to read though because of its small cursive font style. Then my husband ordered Nilasing ni Eba si Adan. Descriptions says, “Get that tipsy high in this pork loin dish in a ??? made of beer and apple.” Drinks available are Coca-Cola Products by the glass. Our palate is not disappointed with the food taste. Aside from that, it is affordable. We had all of this for only PhP615. The desserts are not written on the menu. The server will just let you know what sumptuous treats they have in the refrigerator which you can see in the dining area. What we had was Better than Sex. That is the name, seriously. I just pointed my finger to that slice of cake and the server told me the name. And woooo no offense or MTRCB rating, it tastes really good. After the meal, we did not stay that long because we have other places to go to. By the way, the servers are friendly and informative when I asked about reservations in the Function area, I rate them 5. Perfect! The quality of service is important to us because next to quality of food it is what the business is all about.
