A Treat To My Step Mom

October 12 was my step mother’s birth date. But since It was a weekday, we planned the treat on a weekend so we can go with the kids.

We went to Trinoma Mall in Quezon City first to have dinner at Dencios. It was late lunch. But before going there, we stopped by at the toy section in Landmark to buy a gift for a friend’s son who celebrated his 2nd birthday and had it wrapped at the gift wrapping section. When It’s done, we hurriedly walked to Dencio’s and ordered for late lunch. We had my all-time favorite Dencio’s Special Sisig (I like the crunchy part), Bulalo (hot! beefy good!), Nilasing na Hipon sa Taba ng Talangka (Good, but I had difficulty removing the shells). I in fact want more seafoods but my Dad won’t be able to consume it anyway.The food he eats is limited since he is watching his cholesterol level, sugar level, blood pressure and diabetes. So, those were what we got. We did eat that much since It’s already late lunch. We ate a bit at home.

After we had lunch, we went to Cuts for Tots for Fourth’s 2nd haircut. He was a bit anxious but submitted anyway after a few minutes.

Then, we bought a pair of jacket and jogging pants for our baby Fourth. In preparation for our trip to Baguio on October 19-20, 2012; Friday and Saturday. We bumped in to some people we know inside the mall. My husband bought his sauna suit for fitness purposes.

After the mall tour (long walk in the mall), we sent my dad and step mom to Zen Asia Massage and Spa in West Avenue for a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage for an hour. We have to go back because we have to wait for another hour, there was no available masseur yet. We hang out along Tomas Morato for  a while, on my husband’s brother. Had a chat and talked about gun shooting sometime while Hunger Games shown on the television.

Time to go back to the Massage house, we dropped them off. We waited for an hour driving along Tomas Morato with the kids.  Then fetch them again when they were done. They said it was good then took a picture of them together. End of day.

My message to Stepmom Dang, “You have been with us for almost a decade now but you haven’t changed. Thank you for taking care of our kids and most of all, thank you for loving my father. We love you in return. Cheska and Fourth love you.”

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!
