2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Feng Shui Tips

The new year, 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep, is approaching fast. I am indeed wishing on my lucky stars for it to be a more prosperous year and more blessings! It is said to be a better year for Rats like me!!!

Numerous people, including my previous employer, business tycoons, prominent politicians, celebrities, etc rely on Feng Shui advice before planning their activities.

Master Hanz Cua is dubbed as the youngest Feng Shui Master in the Philippines and in Asia. Ever since he was a child, he was already a psychic-  able to read people's faces and seeing through his third eye.

Master Hanz studied to be a Feng Shui Master, with a diploma as Feng Shui Master practitioner specializing in Feng Shui, Bazi or Chinese Astrology, and Zi Wei Dou Shu (Emperor Purple Star Astrology.)

Master Hanz and the writer

Here are some of the Feng Shui tips Master Hanz Cua shared:

  • Have a general cleaning and cleansing of both the inside and outside the house before the year ends!
  •  New Year's Eve: Bountiful Media Noche Spread and twelve fruits to symbolize each month of the year- pineapple, orange, apple, grapes, banana, mango, lemon, watermelon, papaya, lychees, avocado, pomelo.
  • The lucky charms (crystal accessories) have an "expiration date." The powers or energies might have been used up within a year. To dispose, it can be buried in Earth. To cleanse, wash under running water.
  • With left hand, receive money. With right hand, give money.
  • Wife sleep on the right side, husband on the left side of the bed. Also, sleep in one bed and NOT two separate beds put togther.
  • I know that V-shaped faces are the fad nowadays, but round faced individuals, be happy. Round shaped faces signify water element- lucky with money and business.
  • Map out the nine sectors of your house- Center, South, SE, SW, East, NE, NW, North and West. North is 2015's lucky direction, activate it! The most fortunate Auspicious Wealth Star #8 appears here. 
  • Lucky business for 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep- industry connected to element of wood like furniture, paper, rubber, tree plantation, carton, flower shop, magazines, newspaper. Also business connected to fire industry is good.
  • Good fortune in 2015 for those born under the year of the Tiger, Rabbit and Horse.
  • Green is the lucky color for 2015. Wear red and yellow to be very auspicious. But in WELCOMING the new year, wear red for power, green for wealth.

To naysayers who say Feng Shui is a fraud, they are chllenged to do all their actvivites on the West sector of the house. The West brings danger and malevolence. A sector is also activated by bright light and loud sounds. If activating it does bring them prosperity, well only then could they say Feng Shui is indeed a sham!

A person cannot depend on Feng Shui alone. To enhance luck, one still NEEDS lots of prayers and do good deeds for good karma. There is also "destiny."

Skintology Aesthetics Clinic Makati: Discover Your Skin!

Have you ever been to a skin clinic where you felt uncomfortable? When additional services are shoved (hard-selled) at you, there is no partition and you can easily see the other clients being treated beside you, your therapist is noisily chatting with her colleague, you feel being rushed because of other clients waiting, and such other horrors?

If you are looking for an aesthetic center that values professionalism and  your privacy without the sky high price tag, look no further, because there is Skintology.

skintology address

The laurel leaf in their logo signifies honor and integrity. 

With address at the Ground Floor of Plaza Royale Building, 120 L.P. Leviste Road, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Philippines, Skintology Aesthetics Clinic is founded in November 2013 by partners Maia Pega and Dr. Bryan Uy-Barreta.

Their glow is a testament to Skintology!

Skintology is a relatively new clinic but they already boast of a loyal clientele.

Here are the top five reasons to visit Skintology:

1. The clinic takes pride in their state of the art machines and latest services at reasonable prices.

2. US trained in-house Dermatology Diplomate, Dr. Katrina Marie So-Abat. Certain treatments like peels (except diamond peel, done by therapists) are administered by the doctor.

3. All their skin technicians who underwent a rigid 6 month training. I find their therapists friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable, ably answering my questions about the treatments.

4. Skintology values privacy- even if the person in the next room is your relative, they would not tell you.

5. They also put importance to integrity. Say, if you ask for a certain treatment, but if you do not need it or if it will have a certain adverse effect due to other drugs you are currently taking, they will not advise you to do it just for the sake of money.

The first time I went inside, I immediately noticed that the place smells so good and feels immaculate. Splashes of turquoise and Audrey Hepburn pictures keep it from looking too clinical.

skintology ipl, services, best beauty blogger, top beauty blogger,
What's good about Skintology's IPL machine is that it is preset- to minimize the risk of burning.

I tried their complete beauty package (Php 1,200-1,500). This session consists of nine steps- cleaning, steaming, vacuum, pricking, ionotheraphy with collagen gel (for tightening and circulation), RF ultrasonic firm with Vitamin E, diamond peel, high frequency laser (to close pores), and cold sonic (relaxing the skin).

skintology, makati, review
Skintology has 4 rooms each with its own machine. May I add that their blanket is the softest and fluffiest I've ever touched!

I noticed that they offer nightingale poo facial mask (Php 800). I got curious, and of course I wanted to try it. So the diamond peel step was removed because it is not good to  have both in a single session. The nightingale poo was followed by hyaluronic mask.

Nightingale poo mask originated in Japan and is used by geishas. It is said to have whitening, firming and anti-aging effect.

skintology, nightingale poo mask,
No, there isn't a nasty poo smell!

After the treatment, they said my face looked whiter and it felt very clean.

Then it's the Supersonic Slim with RF (Php 3,600.)

First, moisturizing cream is applied, then  cavitation proper for twenty minutes. I heard a sharp screeching sound due to the fat melting. The bigger the fatty cells, the louder the sound.

Next is the RF heat for fifteen minutes.

skintology, makati, rf and cavitation,
What these 5 wands are, L-R: Vacuum RF (for thighs,) RF Face, Cavitation RF (for the tummy area,) Bio eyes, Tripolar RF (for other body parts.)

With other treatments, one needs multiple sessions just to see any difference. Here, they measured the before and after and I lost 2 inches in just 1 treatment! Wahaha!!! What more if I can maintain it! Wow! Can I get my 23 inch waistline back? That's before my lifestyle got devoid of any exercise (if you don't count walking and household chores) and my metabolism slowed big time as I got older.

skintology total beauty package
VOILA!!! From 33 to 31.2!!! Don't laugh at how chubby I am- I love to eat!

Here is Skintology's Menu of Services.

You can also ask them about Skintology's Sexy Sensation Program for a holistic approach to a fitter you. It combines treatment, diet, supplement and exercise to sculpt you to a masterpiece.

Thank you Skintology!

Some of Skintology's products-  hypoallergenic cleanser, clarifying toner, stem cell regeneration serum, hypoallergenic moisturizer, and tinted sunblock (they claim skipping foundation is possible with this as it offers blemish coverage and UV protection!) I have tried the skin care products- they effectively cleared my skin yet feels very gentle-no sting! The tinted sunblock, on the other hand, acts like a BB cream!

Skintology is open Mondays to Saturdays, from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Lightwater #begreater

For as long as I can remember, whenever someone in the family experiences LBM (diarrhea,) a popular sports drink is surely added to the merry mix of self medications including banana and OTC medicine.

Athletes and sports buffs are also known to replenish and quench their thirst with sports drinks after strenuous activities.

But what if I tell you that regular sports drinks not only hydrate and provide electrons but also give added burden to the liver and kidney because it includes sodium, artificial flavor, artificial color, etc.

Well now my friends, we have a better choice. We can hydrate with Lightwater.

suncoast, lightwater, vitaminboost, be greater, treehouse, sports drink,

Advantages and why Lightwater is the healthier choice:

Pure water + electrolytes calcium magnesium potassium! No sodium!

pH 8.2

suncoast, lightwater, philippines, top health and wellness blogger philippines,

BPA free!

The first time I bought Lightwater months ago (650 ml costs Php 26.00 in the 24-h convenience store,) I thought it was imported. The label looks cool. Lightwater and the colorful Vitamin Boost drink #superchargeyourlife #drinkthyvitamins are manufactured in the Philippines by Suncoast. 

Last December 4, 2014, I was invited to an intimate dinner with Lightwater Ambassadors- sports personalities who support the brand.

treehouse, a.venue, lightwater ambassadors,

There's games and raffle.

Athletes and bloggers team up.

Although I did not win, I am still very happy because I was able to celebrate in this event and have a good time. Good food, good drinks, company of good friends. Especially enjoyed playing  arcade games (Pacman, Super Mario Brothers, Street Fighter) in Treehouse, A.Venue Mall, hehe!

Guys, you should try Magners too. It tastes really great and though I had more than a few glasses, I did not get drunk. Recently, I've bought in the grocery Pfanner Active fitness juice, also imported by Suncoast!

Run Free, Baby - Novo's Story

I first saw you tied to a post in front of a sari sari store. Exposed to the elements. The smoke coming from the jeepneys passing.
I thought you looked very cute similar to our family members- Shih Tzus Chestnut and Polly.

But during my few visits to my parents' house I never saw you eating or drinking.
Scratch that.
I saw you lapping up the soapy water in the floor as your owner is cleaning up. My mom told me much later on she saw you being hit with a bottle when you were begging for sustenance.

Your owner asked my mother what to do with your tongue as it was permanently outside. Can you cut it off, inquired the woman.

We didn't know what to do.

I hoped that someone in the animal welfare group I posted about you would rescue you and give your owner some ass-whooping. Not that I am blaming them. Many were infuriated and wrote in the comments section of the post threats (unfulfilled) against our neighbor upon learning your story. You see it was a difficult situation as your then owners live just across our house.

The only think we could do to save you was to buy you.
They sold you for Php 1500 when you were just given to them by your other owner.

At first you were very timid.
You cannot even climb up or jump down.
The months saw you progressing into the happy dog that you are.
Always smiling, wagging your tail, licking a lot.
Very friendly and behaved.

You only fault was peeing everywhere.
You always accompanied my brother in tending our small store.

Last week you suddenly fell sick.
We did not know if the cause was the poison in the anti-tick collar you wore to protect you from the ticks invasion you got after they brought you to a grooming station.

At first the doctor thought it was a virus in the blood
When you were opened he said it was a rare case and you had stomach infection. We can only blame it to the years of negligence from your first and second owner.

The following day after your vet appointment you were happy to see me.
Though visibly very weak, you could not lie down or keep still. You were always walking.
Mom joined us upstairs and I went to the CR to pee. Next thing I saw you were gone. Stiff and skin in your stomach yellowy. I also saw the final urine. Like what I saw others when they die.

I could not touch you.
I did not cry as I think it is natural for creatures to die. And I did not want for you to suffer and be in pain for long.

dog in the philippines

But why did you leave us? Why so fast?
Did you think that because we have many dogs already and a new puppy we just rescued?
Why do you have to die when there are so many cruel evil people in this world?
Run free, baby Novo. In the other world no one would hurt you. You will not thirst or hunger.
Know that we loved you as our own.

Nichido Tinted Brow Gel Review

I bought the Nichido Tinted Brow Gel in Landmark Department Store yesterday. I am not a big fan of blonde hair and thick black eyebrows; I prefer if they somehow match.

The saleslady told me it is their newest product and showed me 3 tubes. The one I chose is the lightest, Salted Caramel. She said that that color is their best seller. I checked it in the FDA website and was glad to note it was FDA registered. It comes in 4 colors-SALTED CARAMEL, BRUNETTE, ESPRESSO, and ASH BLONDE.

nichido tinted brow gel review


nichido tinted brow gel, price, ingredients,

Made in the Philippines by Goldline Cosmetics. For the price of Php 238.00 for a 7 ml tube, it is a bargain.

Scent is like a mascara scent. You know the chemical smell but it's not strong. I only noticed it when I sniffed it closely.

I applied the product 4 times brushing against the growth of hair and then another 4x going along the hair to cover all sides. The gel smudged my skin.

2 Top: Bare face captured with flash and in natural light.
2 Bottom: With Nichido Tinted Brow Gel captured with flash and in natural light.

nichido brow gel salted caramel

I like that I won't be needing a brow pencil with this as it can really shape and shade.

The most important question- is it waterproof?
I put it to the test and splashed my face with water 5 times and checked in the mirror. The tint in the hair is gone but pigment in the skin is still there. I gently dabbed tissue and a few speck of the pigment went there. But the eyebrow color and shape is still defined because it has also shaded the skin.

Will I buy it again?

The Nichido Tinted Brow Gel in Salted Caramel is okay. However I wanted fuller coverage of the hair- as in the black will be colored blonde. I am curious about other brands so I will try others'.

Chef Arch's Lime - A Yummy Twist to Filipino Street Food

During my college days, I relied on street foods like kwek kwek, chicken balls, kikiam etc to get me thru the day. Even now, when I can afford more expensive food, I still crave for them... Comfort food they seem to me, but sometimes the same old-same old could get boring.

chef arch's lime, mandaluyong

Enter - Chef Arch's Lime. It's Streetfood na Pina-Sosyal! Founded in 2007, Chef Arch's Lime serves street food with a twist and made extravagant!

Why the name? Cause in order to extract juice from a lime, you have to twist it! And here, it's street food with an artistic twist.

chef arch's lime streetfood na pinasosyal

The owner's house turned into a restaurant. That is why it has a home-y appeal.

Here are the bestselling and new dishes they made us try. I decided to categorize them into appetizer, main course, drinks and dessert. But I think they can cross over. Main dish could be the appetizer, appetizer could be the main dish. It depends on the preference. When I am at home and I don't feel like eating a lot, soup is already the main dish for me.


Papadum- couldn't get enough of this Indian food. I like it so much that I can eat it all by myself.


Asian Style Nachos (made of siomai wrapper) with Pico de Gallo and Minced Beef (Php 200)

Assorted Street Style BBQ Platter (Php 190) - Pork barbecue, Isaw, Betamax and Tenga. It seems clean, like I wouldn't get HEPA from this, hue hue hue!

BBQ Platter - Pork barbecue, Isaw, Betamax and Tenga

Main Course - As delicious as it looks

The presentation makes the dishes look like it's something served from a hotel kitchen. It is because the owner, Chef Archie Juanta,  has work experience in some of the best culinary establishments.

Kangkong and Kesong Puti Stuffed Chicken Breast with Mash and Jus (Php 190)

Dessert - The dessert is super YUMMY...

Flourless Chocolate Choc Nut Cake (Php 120)
Choco Sansrival (Php 120)
Choco Mint Torte (Php 100)
Salted Caramel(Php 120)

All in all, I would say that the food they serve is delicious and it is a must visit place! And it's affordable too, right? They also hold acoustic nights! What a great way to unwind after a day's work. Good Food + Good Music = Good Times!

Chef Arch's Lime is located at 160 San Rafael St. Mandaluyong City. Opens daily from 6:00 PM til 2:00 AM.
