Touch of Grace Wellness Spa

Part of my birthday celebration is to have a relaxing pampering and massage together of course with my better half b, I found Touch of Grace Wellness Spa through net. a week before my birthday i texted them and inquire regarding their couple's package, and i'm glad that they promptly respond to my text Ms. Gladys respond that we are entitled to a 20% off with 1.5 hour body massage with VIP Room and exclusive use of wet room (enclosed of Jacuzzi, steam bath and shower) for only 1,240. I set an appointment right away.

As we arrived there the staff are very accommodating, the interior has a homely feeling  you can smell the peppermint aroma, they let us change a slipper first and they guide us to the wet room , of course we soak our self at the Jacuzzi which is our first time. they allowed us to use this for 20 minutes.

The Massage was a little bit hard they asked if the pressure is okay, but still i can feel the hard pressure from time to time strokes used are thumb and palm pressing, i don't know what's the name of massage maybe it's their signature massage, i enjoyed the last part where in the pressed and rubbing is just right. i thought that some pain will last but it dissapear a few minute after the massage.

They provide something to drink after the session and allowed us to stay in the room. I heart Touch of Grace Wellness Spa for being accommodating they treat us like a VIP's and i'm looking forward to visit them again.

Fernandina Garden Suites

Fernandina Garden Suites Review:

As I celebrate my 26th birthday, I look for a hotel within metro manila that suit our budget, since we want to experience staycation in manila, we found this Fernandina Garden Suites through internet, and they have a 40% off promo for the month of October. It’s a catch that’s why I grab the opportunity and booked them right away. They allowed bringing of foods inside my bf texted them for the confirmation.


Located in G. Araneta avenue accessible to all transportation, you have to take a cab to get in.


I booked a double deluxe room but we were assigned at Standard room, I was about to call their attention but b stop me since a queen size bed is enough for him, he don’t want to ruin my birthday celebration, what I notice is the room has a dust accumulate on the side table, and a cob webs I wonder if they do really check and maintain each room. It has no dining table, and no slippers provided.

Bathroom drain clogged even the lavatory is clogged.
Wi-Fi is password secured ask them for the password.

 (Toiletries in a not so well maintained bathroom)

Staff & Services:

Maybe one of the reasons why we are assigned at the wrong room it’s because the front desk receptionist didn’t even bother to read the confirmation letter I gave to her, we were assigned right away at room 14. The Complimentary breakfast delivered to our room has only one cup of coffee so I called them to bring another one. What another off to me is the front desk called us to remind us that the check out time is 12:00, we’ve been to different hotel and never experienced this other allowed us to stay for 30 minutes without extra charge, and the front desk called us again ‘’Mam, 12:05 na po’’. It’s totally turn off to think that there’s only few or almost no guest at all aside from us but they want us to leave the place right away upon check out they didn’t even say ‘thank you’ to us.


No garden I thought it was a Bed & Breakfast type of accommodation that’s how tripadvisor classify. It only has a grass and nothing special. It’s far away on how the hotel describes it in their website.


Affordable rates good for those who want a quick stay, I rather get what I pay for like what I said we booked a double deluxe room but we were assigned at standard room. The time is not flexible they don’t promote extending your time to their hotel.

Overall our stay is ruined but i don't mind it at all good thing that my bf is very understandable, it's a wake up call to both of us to thoroughly choose a hotel base on service and not on it's rates. I hope that the FGS management will improve their service.

SkinStation: Underarm Laser Hair Removal

It has been my dream since i was high school to have a smooth and hairless underarm ,i even promised to my self that after my college graduation i will undergo laser hair removal i even inquire in some clinics offering the service back then laser hair removal or known before as IPL (intense pulse light) is expensive. Good thing many clinics offering LHR and through my research IPL is different from LHR (laser hair removal) and even varies base on the machine. Because i saw some clinics posted IPL as permanent hair removal which is wrong because Electrolysis is the only procedure recognize by the FDA to have a permanent laser hair removal and the most expensive procedure.

I choose Skin Station Clinic since they have an affordable package, last july 2013 i availed their 16 month Under arm Diode laser hair removal package which have a 6 weeks interval no plucking and shaving and i really like the results my underarm appearance improve and  hair grow thin and slowly another thing is Skin Station Diode laser hair removal is painless :)

I'm also planning to avail their Underarm whitening program after my session on UA Diode laser hair removal. for more information visit their website.
