“Too many things to blog too little time….”
It has been a couple of months since I have last written in this blog. It’s just that I somehow change my lifestyle (a little) and that caused me to lessen my time being online. I’m very much occupied with lots of things lately (Photoshoots, Travels, Business, Work, etc). Instead of just resting in my accomodation in Doha during my long days off. Now, I’m usually spending it by going home in Manila or New York (I Love NY!) Even during my vacation leave last Nov-Dec 2010. I divided my 15 days vacation in MNL & NY. Very tiring because of the travel time but it’s worth it! There are lot’s of Sale in U.S during those holiday seasons (Everybody is crazy for shopping mode!) Then last Feb, my mom & sis went to NY luckily I have 5 days off that time so I was able to joined them too! We strolled along Manhattan & Went Ice Tubing/ Skiing for the 1st time in Poconos, Pensylvania. (If time permits, I’ll blog about it!)
Another thing that makes me busy lately is reading books! I don’t know what’s with the year 2011 that made me hooked in books! of course, I do read books from time to time but not as much as this year! To the point of finishing one hard bound book that I just bought in the airport before my 14 hours straight flight! and whenever I’m in the mall by myself, I’ll be most likely be found in the bookstore! I’m now currently reading. “Straight Talk, No Chaser” by Steve Harvey – It’s the follow up version of “Think Like a Man, Act Like a Woman!” by the same author.
As for my layover flights, I still do enjoy going out to explore the city! Which I hope one of these days I’ll have the courage to spend my whole day to upload the pics & blog about it (If time permits!). It’s also a good thing that even though I’m not bidding for asian destination (besides Manila). I always have it. I love asian sector than European sector for the reason of “Pampering”. It’s pretty common that Spa are way cheaper in Asia than anywhere else in the world and yet very satisfying. I spent New Year in Kuala Lumpur, my collegues & I went to salon to tried their hair treatments. After a week, I flew to Singapore to have my Acrylic Nails Done. Then Ventosa & Body Massage in Shanghai China while the most recent is in Saigon, Vietnam where I tried 2 hours hotstone massage. Now you know why I love Asia! All the things that I can’t do in Manila due to lack of time, I can all do it somewhere else in Asia! (How I wish I have time to blog about all these things soon! I’ll be more than willing to share my spa reviews! if time permits!) Ohhhh I’m so addicted on going to spas to pamper myself. It’s my way of distressing after a hard work above the sky! That explains why I have my own Star Bliss Salon & Spa! =)
And lastly, Photo shoots! I loveeeeeet! Modelling & Posing infront of camera is amazingly fun! I love all the pictures! Although it’s consume lots of time during my day off, it’s still worth it! They’re all professional photographers and for that, I’ll be featuring the photos in this blog soon! Promise I’ll find time despite of my busy sched! haha! but anyway, here’s some of it!
It’s been awhile since my last post. Lack of time and interest has been solely responsible for this but actually there are tons of things to write about and happenings to share.
Flights have been great. I’m so thankful that I do fly to Manila more than 4 times per month plus the additional other flights that they will give me. I don’t care about the new destinations and new routes we fly to anymore. Whether I already been there or not it doesn’t matter anymore. I just want to go home, period.
I’m not in the mood to post a really long post, so will just briefly list out some things that I have done in the last few weeks. Just last month I’ve had another vacation leave. It was supposed to be 6 days but luckily I was given additional days offs and a night departure flight (That makes it almost 11 days).
Everyday I’m dropping by at Star Bliss Spa in Timog Ave. Corner Scout Torillo to get some pampering. Be it to start my day with a mani/ped or to finish my evening with a soothing massage or to accompanied the other FA’s on the flight. One time I was there at the spa, my staff saw Sen. Chiz Escudero on the nearby parking lot waiting for his car to be fixed. They called him and insisted to just wait inside the spa! Since he already went there before he agreed to have a back massage while waiting! Mr. Jojo Alejar & Jay Manalo is also our regular customer but I’m not around every time they visits.
My college best friend Riva also visited me then the later on another friend (Emgie from Singapore) surprised me too! “Pag talaga hindi planado natutuloy!” Riva,Glacie & I we’re having dinner at Off The Grill just accross Star Bliss when Emgie came, Then we started calling Ayi, Rina & Em if they can drop by din coz we were the ones na super close since day one of college! We enjoyed catching up and reminisce the good old days while Emgie’s kids are having a kiddie massage treats in the 2nd floor…
The next few days my cousins Ate Arlene & Andrea came over. Now my spa also serves as a good place to chill & hangout while being pampered! Mainly for the convinience of the location with lots of Parking space and because of the establishments around the area. If you want the place to be rented (6-15 person) Just message us at http://www.facebook.com/starbliss.spa /
