Lay Bare Waxing Salon

if you're one of those who are so freaked out about growing hair in places where there shouldn't be, then Lay Bare Waxing Salon is the place for you.

i've been hearing/reading good reviews about it since forever and when they opened a branch here in Makati, i found no reason not to go.

my tolerance for pain is close to non-existent so a trip to a waxing salon isn't something i fancy. however, i also know that one must endure pain for the sake of beauty. so, armed with a couple of painkillers, my friend and i decided to checkout their branch in Buendia.

it was just like a regular spa with an entirely different menu - anything and everything that has to do with unwanted hair removal. the staff were uber nice which made me at ease right away. the rooms were just enough to fit a single bed and a few kikay items (powder, lotion, etc.). there also was piped in music to complete the spa-like ambiance.

i didn't want my first trip there to be traumatic so i opted for the safer treatments : eyebrow, underarm and upper lip wax. i'm not sure if it's because of the kind of wax they use but the treatment was close to painless.

i also have to add that my therapist/waxer/technician or however they call them was sooo funny. she was trying to convince me on having the famous Brazilian Wax to the point that she asked me if i wanted to look at her yah know what so i'd see how pretty it looks. really. seriously. or maybe she meant she was gonna show me "after pictures". needless to say, i opted not to do both. now boys, don't go running there and see if they would flash you.

i'm definitely going back though. maybe try the more painful ones if and when i'm ready. hats off to my good friend who dared try their bikini wax which, according to her was not as painful as she thought it would be.

Nights in Rodanthe

Nights in Rodanthe

a second chance at love which proved yet again that age has nothing to do with finding it

richard gere still has it. gray hair and all, he still makes us ladies shriek like girls as he did with Pretty Woman.

diane lane, as with her roles in Must Love Dogs and Under the Tuscan Sun, has proven to be the epitome of a hopeful romantic. never giving up on love no matter how many times her heart has been broken.

nicholas sparks stayed true to what he does best, romantic tragedies which, after making you go "awww" with the plot, makes you go "WTF" in the end.

the beach house was awesome. i want one like that. or at least go away on a weekend or something to a place like that. minus the hurricane of course.

i'm glad i haven't read the book as it would've spoiled everything.

the only thing i hate about my Nights in Rodanthe experience was this gassy guy, three seats to my left who chose to burp with all his friggin might in almost all the really wonderful scenes.

i'm letting you go

from this day forward, i shall be free of you.

...of the idea of you
....of what it felt like to be with you
.....of the bar that you set ever so high
......of the kind of connection i thought all along only belonged with you
.......of hoping that someday you will realize that it's me all these years

tomorrow, i shall wake up, free and uninhibited. no longer will i be bound to the thought that what we had can never be found with anyone else. because it can and it will happen.

just wait, it will happen. and when it does, i expect you to be happy for me as i am for you.

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2

Official Website next to Sex and the City, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2 comes in a close second for the best chick flick of the year (well at least for me).

i. loved. it.

the cast. Greece. the plot. Greece. the men. oooh the men. did i say Greece? suffice to say that after the film, we all wanted to go there. someday. maybe. hopefully.

unlike the prequel, part two is much lighter and happier with a whole lot of kababawan that would make the mush haters grimace in pain. needless to say that you ladies might wanna let the guys sit this one out as i'm afraid they will not appreciate this at all.
