The thing about these fold-up flats is that there are a variety of styles, colors, patterns, and textures to choose from! Yup! Style isn’t sacrificed here for comfort. Their new S/S 2015 collection screams freshness, fit for every personality! From ombre patent leather fabrics, watercolor florals, sporty neoprenes, lace, studs, metallic snake prints, and more! Aside from closed ballet flats, they also have open-toed, and slip-on sandals. Below are some photos from the afternoon, as well as some their new designs.
Throwing parties can be daunting at times with all the preparations they entail. From sorting out the guest list, figuring out the venue, choosing a theme, selecting items from the menu, the birthday cake, and the list goes on! In my case, I didn’t quite have time to prepare for any of those at all, especially after the graduation high, and with work having piled up along the way. Fortunately, the awesome Bubba Gump team was on my side! Headed by their newly acquired ‘Team Leader’, who is also known to be my sweet partner in anti-crime, I was thrown a beautiful signature Bubba Birthday complete with, well… everything.
I never knew ‘Feeling Twenty-Two’ could ever feel this good. Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with me, to Bubba Gump Philippines, to my dear loved ones, and of course to The One up above for a night I’ll forever cherish!Cheers to yet another year!
P.S. Since I’m already posting this timely with their newest promo, why won’t I go ahead and share the great news too! All diners at Bubba Gump will get a chance to win a new ride from British car brand MG/Morris Garages, for a minimum single receipt worth P1,500 only starting May 1 – December 18, 2015!

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Philippines is located in 2L, Greenbelt 3, Makati City, Philippines,
Every corner was in full bloom last March 26, at the Henry Hotel Manila, as I found myself in an intimate gathering of friends and guests who appreciate the beauty of fine jewelry whatever the season may be.
More than adding sparkle, glamour, or tying an outfit together to create a complete and polished look, jewelry inevitably tells a story. This spring, Pandora tells one that’s all too familiar in the hearts of many as they incorporate elements that depict the magic of nature, new beginnings, change and metamorphosis, as well as love for our dear mothers, in time for Mother’s Day.
High tea and jewelry? Couldn’t think of an even better idea!
Pandora’s 2015 Spring Awakening Collection includes four sub-lines namely, Precious Primrose, Magic of Nature, New Beginnings, and Mother’s Day. It made great sense having the venue at a quaint hotel, not only because of the classic vibe it gave, but because it also accommodated all the activities that were in store for us that very interesting afternoon.
To give us a more immersive experience of what the new collection embodied, different rooms held activities that represented and housed each sub-line.
To my surprise, one room had a bed! It showcased the New Beginnings line, and the huge, comfy bed was essential in the Chakra-healing session conducted by Kimi Lu. Just like the sub-line’s butterfly charms, the session left its guests renewed, as if unraveling from a metamorphosis.
The Precious Primrose section was as dainty as its bouquet charms. The area was adorned with art installations created by famed French-Filipina artist Olivia D’aboville.
Meanwhile, the Magic of Nature room held Do-It-Yourself terrarium sessions that challenged the green-thumbs in all of us! The sub-line’s charms signify the wonder behind nature’s capacity of constantly bringing new life in various forms. From daisies, red crystalized apples, and dragonflies, these charms definitely spell magic to me!
The Mother’s Day line’s section was definitely the icing on top of the cake, as a pamper pod awaited us all. In partnership with Beauty and Butter, we were treated to what all ladies (especially the supermoms) need… A relaxing mani-pedi session. It really can’t be anymore perfect that Mother’s Day falls on Spring, since Mothers, like the season of rebirth, are bestowed with the gift of giving life.
Or in a more local context, rain or shine!
PANDORA is available at Greenbelt 5, Glorietta 4, Bonifacio High Street Central, Newport Mall (Resorts World Manila), Shangri-La Mall, The Podium, SM Aura, SM Mega Fashion Hall, Trinoma, and Century City Mall.
that will revitalize your mind, body and soul.
Sounding all hippie here but even I was surprised by how light and renewed I felt after the package mom and I took a few weeks ago.
“Zenyu” actually means complete healing in Japanese. Their main services include the usual full body and foot spa massages, their iconic fish spa, and their signature negative ion hot bed treatment—the only one here in the Philippines! Sounds quite fancy, right!
More details below:
You can also avail of the full body fish spa treatment. Just bring your swimsuit, dip in,
and hold your laughter.
It was kinda too cold for me though.
Our masseuses were also really accommodating with special requests.
*Acai is a superfood and is an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamins
We were also given our own water tumblers to keep us hydrated during the entire treatment.
Now more about this Negative Ion Hot Bed Treatment…
It’s actually the same facility and technology they use in Japan’s Ecoparadise Deoxidation Center. They’ve branched out in Singapore and Malaysia as well, and the Philippine counterpart is this, located in Manila Ocean Park’s Hotel H20.
So what are negative ions anyway? What does this treatment exactly do?
According to Ecoparadise Japan, negative ions are referred to as the “vitamins of the air” and these molecules are present in bodies of nature such as in waterfalls, hot springs, mountains, virgin forests and beaches.
Health benefits include:
Cell regeneration, blood circulation, bowel movement, body aches, and diseases overall… some cancer patients even avail of this treatment on a regular basis and have shown signs of healing according to Zenyu Eco Spa’s Manager, Ms. Katrina Mananzala.
With their specialized construction of the Antioxidant Hot Bed Therapy Rooms, the whole area has a balance of electrical charges similar to the energies you get from naturally negative-ion-rich environments.
Just inhale and exhale and you’ll sweat out all your body’s toxins in minutes.
They can also shut the lights for you and you can literally just dose off and fall asleep. Temperature of the room is set at 45 degrees Celsius with humidity of 20%. Since these are negative ions, the warmth and humidity isn’t suffocating.
You can even bring a book with you or your gadgets for as long as these electronics won’t come into direct contact on the heated ground.
This treatment is perfect for people under heavy stress, people with illnesses (since the place is completely virus/bacteria-free, and will boost their stamina with these magic molecules), and for just anyone looking for a rebirth from their exhausted selves.
My cheeks were naturally rosy after my Zenyu Eco Spa session, and my skin felt so supple too. Inside, I was feeling real pumped and ready to face the world once more with my new and improved negative-ion-filled mind, body, and soul! (haha)
Definitely making this a habit! So, for you future new timers, I might just see you in the hot bed room on my next visit!
