I avail of facial treatment once in a while. When I found out about a cut-off deal with a Radiofrequency treatment, I did not hesitate to buy a voucher.

The offer came from the Orange Body Lab.  It is a place that specializes in beauty and personal care. As I entered, the place, I was immediately drawn to the smell of oranges, which soothed me. The reception area was so clean and there were several chairs with orange pillows on top waiting to be sit on.

I approached the receptionist and she inquired about my name. She promptly told me to wait for awhile while for my room. I chose for the said treatment and this Ultrasonic Age Defying Facial with Vitamins ACE.  Each costs 99 pesos. 

The Radiofrequency (RF) treatment was performed onto me. RF is the newest non-surgical way to reduce cellulite and break down fat cells. The treatment is applicable to, thighs, buttocks, face, arms, neck and stomach.

My tummy has always been my problem. It easily gets big though I do not each too much. As the years passed, it becomes a ‘bilbil’.

As I lay down the bed, the medical professional reminded me of some important things. First, I was not allowed to stand up when the session has begun. She even put a metal plate at my back to avoid being static. Also, for the next 24 hours, I was not allowed to take cold drinks and for the next 8 hours, I could not take a bath. Lastly, she told me the RF treatment was like massaging my stomach and I should inform her asap if I could not tolerate it.

The buzz coming from the equipment indicated the end of the session. Result?  Stomach felt great, but with just a little bit of warm sensation.

The said facial treatment was performed after. According to them, unlike, the usual facial treatment, this one helps you achieve a more youthful look. The no-peeling and no-injections treatment let the vitamins deeply penetrate your face.

The same medical professional first cleaned my face using cotton buds and a cleanser. She then applied a cold liquid gel. It was followed by a hot liquid gel that was spread only on my mouth part. The fragrant cream was the finale and my face was totally rejuvenated afterwards.  Before the end of the whole session, she advised me not to wash my face for the next 8 hours so that it would absorb the vitamins.

Radiofrequency treatment maybe done around twice or thrice a week while the facial is you can do on a weekly basis. Aside from this, Orange Body Lab also offers liposuction cavitation and intensive diamond peel to name a few.

You most likely don’t get the result immediately because still it is based from your lifestyle. Stop eating too much fatty foods. Drink a lot of juices and water.  And, as much as possible, we should try to sleep early.

Be beautiful inside and out with Orange Body Lab. Book your appointment now!

It was my second trip to the beautiful city of Zamboanga and I am still amazed with the things that the place offers particularly food!

Have you ever tasted marang? It looks like Jackfruit and Guyabano (Soursop) in the outside. But not like that as you open it. Its inside is white and when you bite into it, you find a big seed which you leave in your plate. This fruit was a complete surprise; it tasted so good that I almost could not stop myself from eating. Marang definitely satisfied my appetite for a good Zamboanga fruit.

Shawarma has never been served so well. At Earlybirds-different flavors of shawarma will easily captivate your taste buds.

Image

The place is near Paso Del Mar- one of Zamboanga City’s famous attractions where you can eat, enjoy and relax while enjoying a view at the bay.

Image

I ate Beef Shawarma that cost only 40 pesos. It contains potato, beef and green tomato which are- good for your diet. The beef was non-greasy and easy to chew. Even without onions, it was yummy! I just added some mayonnaise and voila, perfect merienda!

Such an amazing interior! I could not keep eyes while eating!

If you were to take me to a rice-all-you-can place, think about it. I am not really a rice-eater, though I just could not resist Chinito’s Asian Kitchen rice-in-a-box! All around Zamboanga City, you would find Chinitos even at the mall where I first saw it. The food chain offers a variety of Asian flavors like India’s Curry, Thailand’s Thai Mango and our very own Adobo and Sinigang!

Image

For my first time, I tried their Japanese’s Teriyaki rice.

Image

Yummy teriyaki rice by Chinito’s!

The small bits of beef, mixed vegetables, rice and butter were delectable and I was done eating in just a snap! Indonesia’s Beriyaki on the other hand spiced up my mouth. It was my second rice meal that made me want to gulp loads of water!

Image

The oh so hot Indonesia’s beriyaki!

If you are not into spicy food, just ask for some milk which they would add to your rice.

Visit Zamboanga City now for a awesome food experience!

Winning a contest was always a blessing. Truly, I am not a fan of Japanese dishes yet I have tried some already. When I won a gift certificate for the newest meal of Yabu: House of Katsu, I got so elated.

A month ago, I chose to go to the Yabu branch at SM Megamall because it was convenient for me. I had already reserved a table for me and my cousin. It was lunchtime when we got there and the place was totally jampacked. There were families who were still waiting for their turn to eat. I notified the branch regarding my reservation and I was surprised that they had not been informed about it. I thought that the staff here not going to accommodate us. They just told me that they would just verify my name. Luckily, we waited for just a few minutes for the confirmation and then they finally led us inside. Fast service!

As my cousin and I sat down to our chairs, a crew member immediately gave us the menu book.

While waiting for our orders, the waiter gave us something to ponder on a bowl containing sesame seeds which we needed for our tonkatsu sauce.

I had fun grinding the sesame seeds that I did not even noticed that the Soft Shell Crab Katsu Set was already in front of me! I ordered Yabu’s Bottomless Houseblend Iced Tea to complete my meal set.

Meanwhile, my cousin chose the Vegetarian Katsu Set and Watermelon Milkshake for her drink.

The soft shell crab katsu was heavenly. It felt like I was eating at the seaside of Japan and not inside a restaurant! With every bite I tasted the crab which really complemented to the unlimited cabbage, rice and sauce.

I also loved the vegetable katsu set which contains my all time favorite veggies-carrots, eggplant and potatoes. Talk about being healthy!

As my cousin and I were about to finish our grandiose lunch, the manager went to our table and asked us about the food and service. I prompted replied that we are doing fine; the meals were great and their staff was super nice. Yabu is one of the few restaurants that I have gone so far where customer feedback and satisfaction is of extreme importance. Kudos to Yabu!

My cousin and I enjoying our Yabu meals!

I really felt like I had not taken a big bite yet because there was still food on my plate, though my cousin and I had been eating for half an hour already! I took it as a challenge and after a few moments… The food was gone!

Yabu: House of Katsu is truly a fine restaurant that serves delicious Katsudon meals. It had a truly awesome and unforgettable Yabu dining experience there. Until we meet again, Yabu!

If you have not visited Yabu, well now is the perfect time to do so. Rest assured it will be worth your money and effort.
