A “spa retreat” at Blue Water Day Spa

A “spa retreat”, that’s what I want to call the experience when you have your massage at Blue Water Day Spa’s Capitol Hills branch. One doesn’t have to go for a 2-hour drive to Tagaytay just to “escape”  and relax from the stress of living in the city. Just visiting the Capitol  Hills branch will bring you to a different atmosphere, a relaxing retreat. You’ll see greens provided by the golf course nearby and fresh breeze because of the strategic elevated location of the spa. Watching the sunset is another relaxing experience aside from having a spa.

On online shopping and unknown callers

Ever since I started my online shop, Pink Fortune, I get to receive text messages from unknown numbers of prospective buyers. Naturally, I gladly entertained all their inquiries for me to have a successful transaction with them. Online shopping in the Philippines is still at an early stage because a lot of people are still hesitant to use their credit cards online and are still not comfortable of having to wait for their items to be delivered via courier. Albeit the comfort online shopping brings, a lot of consumers prefer to shop in the malls or have them delivered via COD. Some marketing strategies can be sometimes annoying too like calling you and offering you to buy their items. A friend tried to report telemarketers once to PLDT but to no avail. Another reason that hinders online shopping in the Philippines to soar is due to scammers. I need not elaborate on those sellers in Multiply who turned out to be scammers because it’s been happening for years now. As a seller, I have my fair share of scammers online. Yes, even online sellers can be scammed and harrassed.

Camp Sabros Zip Line and other zip lines in Davao

Last week, my husband Jeff and our outdoor group, PHINOE, conquered the highest mountain in the Philippines, Mt. Apo. As a sidetrip, they checked out Camp Sabros which is very near the jump-off point of Mt. Apo. I wish I was with Jeff at Camp Sabros because I really wanted to try zip lining since it was featured on TV. Jeff decided to capture his zip line experience to show me. This is one great experience I want to try once I set foot in Davao… see for yourself!
