MISSY BON BON BREADSHOP: CDO's Bread and Gelato Haven

MISSY BON BON BREADSHOP: CDO's Bread and Gelato Haven
We were walking inside the newly opened Ayala Centrio Mall in Cagayan De Oro when we chanced upon a very refreshing restaurant.  It is just inside Bigby's restaurant. There's a long line of customers buying gelato. This got me curious, so I went inside and had taste samples of their gelato. I super like their peanut butter gelato! Only Php 55.00 per cup.
I learned that Chef Anne, who is among the first batch of CCA graduates 15 years ago and one of the partners of Missy Bon Bon, studied in the South of Italy just to learn gelato making. Gelato is made with milk, sometimes skim-milk as opposed to cream which gives Gelato a much lower milk fat content. Less milk fat allows the flavors of Gelato to really stand out compared to the more blended flavors of Ice Cream. They buy cow's milk from local farmers in Bukidnon to support the local industry in Mindanao.
A box of 6 pieces Delicious Bread Pastel costs only Php 70.00

This cute bottle of distilled water costs Php 35.00 only.
On the lookout for a local restaurant in CDO? Then never miss to try the gelato, breads and pastries at Missy Bon Bon.

Their on-going promo of Buy 1 take 1 on selected breads and pastries is a winner! How I wish they have a branch here in Metro Manila.

ZEN INSTITUTE: Skin and Body Center Opens in Batangas

ZEN INSTITUTE: Skin and Body Center Opens in Batangas
"Some guys say beauty is only skin deep. But when you walk into a party, you don't see somebody's brain. The initial contact has to be the sniffing." - James Caan

Here is a piece of good news to Southern residents! “Skin and Body Center” by Zen Institute opens first branch outside the metro. You no longer need to drive all the way to Manila just to have your beauty fix.

The chance to be physically transformed inside and out has come of age south of Manila. The Zen Institute has reached out to the province of Batangas located at St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center, Maharlika Hi- way, Brgy. 2, Sto. Tomas, Batangas. This is the first ever Zen branch outside the metro.

The newly opened medical spa “ Skin and Body Center”, managed by the Zen Institute, reflects the kind of inspiration evoked by its guiding philosophy : “Elegance in its simplicity” where true beauty rises from the inner well-being. True to the ambience that permeates all centers of the Zen Institute—the main one in Bonifacio Global City, Hotel Sofitel branch, and another one at Sct. Rallos, Quezon City—“Skin and Body Center managed by Zen Institute also combines a sense of creativity, taste and aesthetics, in the pursuit of perfect health that creates perfect beauty through non-invasive and non-surgical treatments.

Zen founding president, Dr. Mary Jane “MJ” Torres, shared, “The need to reach out to the rest of the Filipinos, all over the country and the world in the promotion of total health, wellness and beauty without the risk of surgery. This is the primary purpose of the birth of this new Skin and Body Center.”

Men and women of all ages from south of Metro Manila who want to attain a beautiful face and body now no longer need to go to Manila for various non-invasive expert services like skin pampering treatment, facial contour, and anti-aging treatment, body sculpting with weight management, and hair revitalizing treatment, among others.

Dr. MJ revealed that the different treatments are all based on a medical protocol. “Skin and Body Center” by Zen creates a program protocol to assist its clients to live a healthy lifestyle through personal coaching. The Center seeks to deliver effective and immediate solutions for stress-induced conditions like muscle pain, weight management, sun-damaged skin, aged-spots, anti-aging —all these through non-surgical means and some breakthrough solutions tested in more advanced countries and here.”

The Skin and Body Center by Zen Institute is one solid statement that soon it will be able to realize and complete its dream of crafting perfection as it reaches out to every Filipino wherever they are… and whoever they are.” 

“As the essence of the ‘Zen’ concept: Perfection comes from harmony and flow, a natural consequence of a healthy lifestyle,” Dr. MJ ended.

GRUDGE: Reason to A Murder

GRUDGE: Reason to A Murder
Attention: Rumor Mongers, Gossip-mongers and to all those who love to spread false rumors and scandals.

A grudge over a supposed rumor led to the murder of model and TV talent Julie Ann Rodelas, the Quezon City Police District's Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit said Sunday.
QCPD-CIDU head Chief Inspector Rodelio Marcelo said this prompted them to tag Althea Altamirano and her boyfriend Fernando Quiambao Jr.  as the masterminds.

In an interview with Althea, she said she is mad at the victim Julie Ann for spreading false rumor against her person and she told her boyfriend Fernando Quiambao about this. Quiambao then told Althea that he'll teach Julie Ann a lesson.

Althea Altamirano admitted that she wanted to teach fellow model Julie Ann Rodelas "a lesson" for talking behind her back and spreading rumors about her having two kids. But she said she never knew that her boyfriend would take this to the extreme by allegedly arranging Rodelas' death.
May this serve as a lesson to all rumor-mongers, gossip-mongers,  gossiper, gossipmonger, newsmonger, rumourmonger, gossip communicator ,cat - a spiteful woman gossip; "what a cat she is!", scandalmonger - a person who spreads malicious gossip, blabbermouth, talebearer, taleteller, tattler, tattletale, telltale - someone who gossips indiscreetly, yenta.

We do not condone killing anyone who spread false rumors against you or your loved ones. There are other options for you. Just consult a lawyer. You can file a case against rumor-mongers. It can be oral defamation, libel or slander.
