EMPIRE SALON: For All Things Hair


EMPIRE SALON: For All Things Hair
A fantastic haircut and color are worth every penny. You see I just had my hair styled and cut by Miss Cristy of EMPIRE SALON located inside Intercontinental Hotel in Makati City.
Empire Salon hair color treatment for Cha Sy
Ms. Cristy Dizon is a London-trained stylist and the style director of Empire Salon. She's now added to my list of favorite hair stylists, probably next to my super favorite Louis Phillip Kee (LPK).

I had a great experience at Empire Salon. Ms. Cristy did an amazing layered cut to my mane. It's now more feminine, soft, and flowing.
In choosing your hair-stylist, so many factors come into play like, for example, the ones that you'll find on my checklist:
  • skill
  • reliability
  • price
  • experience
  • customer service
  • rapport
I also had a permanent hair color at Empire Salon. Rick Ablan, a salon technician, is responsible for my new hair color.
My hair was always the wash-and-wear type. I rarely go to a salon for my hair color. I usually do it myself. It turned out that my choice of color to cover my grey hair is a big no no! That's why the staff of Empire Salon had to do a strand test and a color correction. Rick, the one who took care of my hair color, was ably assisted by an amiable staff of Empire Salon. Please remember that the best hair color must be oil-based so that there would be minimal damage to your hair. 
The Place: I think the salon is small compared to LPK but it has adjacent exclusive private rooms available for people who value their privacy.
And you know what the best part is? The private rooms are free to use if you avail of their services from Five Thousand Pesos (Php5K) up. 
Each private room is equipped with iPod and tablet for the client's exclusive use.
You could also opt to use one of the private rooms for an additional 10% if you're availing of hair cut only. Imagine the privacy and exclusivity. You won't see anyone gawking on your hair. Everyone at Empire Salon is pleasing and friendly.
Service: Service is great and professional. My hair stylist Ms. Cristy certainly knows what she was doing during the 5-6 hours for my hair color alone. By the way, they also serve unlimited iced tea.
Price: Php600-1,300 for Hair Cut

Empire Salon is clean. The front office staff is nice and courteous. The Salon carries good hair products I love. Ms. Cristy and Mr. Rick kept me informed on what they were doing to my hair and why they were doing it. All of them
, especially Ms. Suki, Ms. Cristy and Mr. Rick, gave me tips on hair care and hair styling products.
Final verdict: After the customary mirror check,  I can say I am happy with my new hair style and color.  
                          
The results are fantastic! I love how awesome my hair stylist Ms. Cristy add body to my hair just by cutting it in layers. I can see the difference in styling from ordinary salons. And my hair color is now absolutely a far cry from my pitch black hair. My new mane is a little washed-out brown with classy highlights. 

Empire Salon will give you a 20% discount if you mention that you heard about them from www.travelonshoestring.com or www.pinaymanila.com.

ST. NAILS: Pampering Treat


ST. NAILS: Pampering Treat
We live in a very stressful world. And sometimes, it pays to listen to your body. 

I admit that I was so stressed out the past few days that I really really wanted some pampering treat. Thank God for angels on earth like my friend Vanna and Carol who gifted me with a pampering treat at St. Nails in Ayala corner Dasmarinas Village Makati City. 

Note: St. Nails Gift certificate is a perfect gift for your family and friends this holiday season. I think they have Gc's as low as Php 400 pesos up. Maybe you could give them a call and inquire about it.
I was so impressed with the homey feel of St. Nails. Noticeable are the dimmed lights, comfortable chairs and friendly staff.  The staff even served me with a glass of hot tea. I even saw one of the staff put a herbal pillow on the back of another customer. She forgot to ask me if I also want one for my tired back. Well, maybe you should request for one if you try out their service. I tell you I had a very sound sleep. Their place is perfect for relaxation.
After I chose my preferred color for my gel manicure and pedicure, the process began. The Nail technician submerged my hands and feet in a warm water solution.
Then she began cleaning my nails. Tired and stressed out,  I dozed off to dreamlandia after that. Ha ha ha! 
I love the end result.
Look at my Gel nail polish color. It made my skin looks fairer.
I chose blue gel nail polish because this color works well with outfits containing various colors.
Remember, no matter what length of nails you have, the key to a nice nail is proper filing, so take the time to make your nails shapely and clean.
Thanks to the St. Nails staff for making my visit a relaxing one.
St. Nails provides free parking and free wi-fi connectivity for their customers. Awesomeness! That is so high tech!
Saint Nails also offers party packages where you can reserve the entire place. I am so thrilled when I learned about this information because I would love a spa party for myself and my whole barkada soon.

I wish that this coming Christmas, which is just around the corner, an angel will once again treat me to a pampering treat at St. Nails. Ha ha ha! #wish #ChristmasGift

LUCY TORRES-GOMEZ BARES THE HIDDEN TRUTH


LUCY TORRES-GOMEZ BARES THE HIDDEN TRUTH

"Umalis ka dyan sa pila, hindi kita bibigyan, iba ang payong mo, hindi yan kay Mayor"

Sa panahon ng sakuna at sa pagbangon kailangan pa ba na pare pareho tayo ng balahibo?

Hindi ko maintindihan bakit hinahaluan ng politika ang pagresponde sa mga nasalanta. 

Hindi kasalanan ng National Government ang mga pangyayaring ito dahil gusto lamang nila na magkaroon ng sistema ang distribution ng mga relief goods. Ang mga mapagsamantalang namumulitikang local government at Baranggay Captain, Brgy. Kagawad ang dapat ipatawag at papanagutin sa kanilang mga ginawang kabalbalan.


MANNY PACQUIAO: Wins WBO International Welterweight Title


MANNY PACQUIAO: Wins WBO International Welterweight Title
Manny Pacquiao proves once again that he is a true blue champion!
Manny Pacquiao weighs at 150 pounds, while his opponent in the ring, Brandon Rios weighs at 159 pounds. Rios is also taller and has longer reach than Manny Pacquiao.
Their fight was labelled as “Clash in Cotai” that was held today, Sunday, November 24, 2013, in Cotai Arena in Macao.

Manny Pacquiao Hunger for the belt WBO International Welterweight Title
Manny Pacquiao is fierce. Hungry for the World Title Belt!
They are about to start round 1....
Manny is ready to fight.
Round 1 Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is wearing his advertisement filled blue shorts and Brandon Rios is wearing a cement bag look a like white shorts. Manny approaches Rios with a jab. It seems they were trying to gauge one another. Rios did not try to land a punch on Manny. The first punch to really connect is a left jab to the head by Pacman. The crowd cheered for Manny. Manny Pacquiao's speed seems to bother Brandon Rios. Then Rios went down on his backside. The referee rules it as a slip and Rios gets some good shots in when the pair grapple. And just before the final bell Pacquiao lands a strong left to Rios' head.
Round 2 Brandon Rios finally had the balls to go forward towards Manny Pacquiao at the opening of the second round, landing some seemingly strong body shots. Pacquiao was forced to dance a little more than usual. After 90 seconds of Rios looking the aggressor, Pacquiao finally counters with a flurry of combinations. In the final ten seconds Pacquiao again lands a series of headshots.
Round 3 It seems as if Pacquiao is at his best with strong shots and athleticism in the ring. Rios made a brief rally early in the round when he trapped Pacquiao in a corner. But Pacquiao responded with some strong counterpunching in the middle of the ring to likely win the round. But it was Rios’ best round.
Round 4 Pacquiao seems to be in complete control of the fight. His left jabs seem to have confounded Rios. While neither fighter seems to be in distress, Pacquiao is running a clinic on how to win a fight. It’s now a question of how long Rios wants to put up with this
Round 5 Pacquiao opened the round with a strong left to the head of Rios and then followed with a good left-right combination later in the round. Observers are starting to wonder how longer Rios can last in this fight. Any doubt that Pacquiao’s loss to Marquez was going to define the end of his career were sadly mistaken. It’s now his fight to finish

Round 6 Manny Pacquiao started the round with a strong left-right combination but he seems to have settled down a bit. But as the round progressed Pacquiao got stronger with combinations and even drew a little blood around Rios’ right eye. The question now seems as if Rios can win a single round or be shutout.

Round 7 Anyone who doubted Manny Pacquiao needs to reconsider the future of the 34-year-old boxer. He looks young and fresh, and his left jabs seems sharp as ever. This round crosses over that Rios would need a knockout to win the fight. Pacquiao holds a 172-88 advantage in punches landed. The crowd was chanting Manny's name.

Round 8 They're not fighting in some instance. Their arms are locked. Manny is not as active in this round. If there was a round that Rios could win, this was it. Pacquiao looked a little unsettled and Rios even landed a left shot that connected with his face. But a late flurry by Pacquaio brought the round back to him as Rios looked distressed around the eyes and nose.
Round 9 More of the same as it becomes apparent that Pacquiao’s only remaining goal is to pitch a shutout. Rios showed a late flurry but it was answered by strong, sharp connections by Pacquiao. Rios isn’t hurt but he is surely beaten. Both eyes are swollen. Rios could not catch Manny. Manny is too fast for Brandon Rios. Rios is still standing up but the round once again belongs to Manny Pacquiao.
Round 10 Pacquiao continued to dominate his overmatched opponent, scoring easily with punches that seem to sting but not hurt. Rios is hoping just to make the 12-round finish with no chance of winning the fight. Only a miracle can give Rios the win. Rios was given another warning by the referee. Rios got in. But it is nothing seious. Manny Pacquiao is very careful.
Round 11 An early flurry by Pacquiao got the crowd excited but Rios seemed determined to finish the fight. Pacquiao’s left continues to connect with modest damage against a fighter that only has a puncher’s chance to win. The pace of the fight seems to have slowed but Pacquiao’s dominance has not. Brandon was left with a cut on his cheeks and left eye. Brandon Rios even lift Manny Pacquiao to stop him from beating him. Manny is aggressive in this round. Manny is doing a lot of foot work. Brandon Rios has taken a beating from Manny Pacquiao.
Round 12 The final round started with Rios realizing he had only one chance and that was knockout, but it was clear that the Manny Pacquiao that captivated the world was still around. He jabbed and hit at will. The fact that he didn’t drop Rios will not be remembered as a fight that Pacquiao did not close but more that he is as dominant as he ever was. Both men are still standing at the end of round 12. Brandon Rios got a boxing lesson from Manny Pacquiao. He looks like a beaten boxer at the end of round 12.

Manny Pacquaio wins by unanimous decision! He is back! #MannyPacquiao #DominantVictory #BackOnTrack.

The judges are Michael Pernick (Florida), Lisa Giampa (Las Vegas) and Manfred Kuchler (Germany).


Official Scorecards: 120-108, 119-109, 118-110

Congrats Manny!
