La Raine Nail and Day Spa in my beloved hometown, Calamba, Laguna is my go to place every time that I want to give my feet and hands extra lovin'.  I've tried several nail and day spas here in the South but when I tried La Reine, I never tried any other place, they have the most affordable packages for foot spa, foot and hand paraffin which is my favorite, mani and pedi, they even have facial care services, they have almost everything that you need for extra self pampering without compromising it's quality. How the place was set up though, would get  a 4 out of 5 star rating from me because I think they need to add more decorations to the place to make it more relaxing and for me it would be better if they're going to play the usual spa music, those instrumental ones, usually just being played using the guitar instead of those pop music that we usually hear on the radio. Anyhow, they still have a nice ambience, otherwise I won't keep on coming back. 

When I went there, I had foot spa, foot and hand paraffin and pedicure. These  are the services that I'm always getting from them because paraffin can lessen the appearance of veins in my hands and feet which figuratively runs in our veins :D This package only cost 480php as for other spa's, it might cost me more than a thousand.

In preparation for foot spa.

After my foot was soaked in paraffin, it was wrapped in plastic for a couple of minutes.

Eeny meeny miny moe :D

Aaaand voila! my feet looks better than my face! hahaha! or maybe it looks like a man's feet, lol! but I love the result though, my feet isn't just really photogenic :D

Upon visit, you will also get a Royalty Card that they will stamp every time you go to La Reine and every fifth visit you will get a free service either polish upgrade (hand and feet), hand or foot massage which I would be getting three visits fr now :D, royal hand spa or foot spa or royale manicure. #GoodJob

I finally got to experience this food craze that first hit New York when I went to Tempura Japanese Grill in Alabang Town Center yesterday.

When I took the first bite of this dish, the first thing that came into my mind was that, it is indeed true that good thing comes to those who wait, lol! I've been waiting for Ramen Burger to come to the Phils, so I was really happy when it did, much more when I learn that not only will it be available in Manila, but also in ATC which is way more accessible from my place. Anyway, going back to my experience munching on this dish, the almost 15 minute wait for my order was truly worth it. Out of my usual rating, which is 5 being the highest, I'd give this a 6, lol! It was sooooo good!!!! It was like love at first bite! I love the grilled like taste of it's homemade beef patty and honey cured bacon. It also has roasted onions, sesame seeds, lettuce and smothered with Tempura Japanese Grill's signature sauce. A side dish of potato chips was also served along with it. I would highly recommend this dish if you want a twist on your regular burger.

I also ordered their Watermelon shake, which I would give a 4.5 out of 5 star rating because it's too sweet.

What I also love about this experience, is that Tempura Japanese Grill doesn't have service charge :D

I might have a lot of struggles last year but that made my 2013 a lesson filled year. Those struggles made me appreciate my blessings all the more. Anyway enough for the struggles, since I'm not the only one who experienced that last year,lol! I also gained a lot of friends who's always been present whenever I need them. It was also last year when my baby was born, which is this blog, lol!  This new year I hope that I won't forget those lessons that I've learned fr last year. I swear to always keep in mind that there's always something to be thankful for, so it's ok if sometimes things don't go my way. Anyway so much for the drama, lol! I wish u guys an even more blessed 2014! <3
