Happy Mother's Day to all my "kapwa" Mothers. We deserve this special day because we truly are worthy of such recognition. Juggling things at home, work and play almost at the same time is no joke and not easy. Mother's Day 2013 falls on a Sunday, sandwiched by non-working days (the Monday is Election Day). What a great way to spend the special day with the family because of a long weekend.
Last Saturday, together with my sister and mother planned for this "date" and sort of unwinding to have a relaxation retreat courtesy of Bioessence Skin Slimming Spa. A gift certificate was given to me as a Christmas present from my sister's family and thought of availing it with them (my mom has a gift certificate too). The package is composed of a Swedish massage, regular facial and hand paraffin. We opt to avail only the massage and facial since I have a hand injury and postpone hand paraffin to some other time. We arrived at the place past 2pm and were escorted to their lobby and reception area. We registered there because it is by appointment when availing their services. After a few minutes, we were ushered to our own rooms in preparation for the massage. I changed on my clothes to their robes and went for a Sauna. After around 15-20 minutes, we went back to our room for the massage proper. After an hour and a half, I was pampered by facial treatment that I fell asleep during the commotion in my face. It was all worth-it and a great way to treat myself. After all the services done to us, we were offered a tea and crackers. Overall it was satisfying and relaxing.
They have an ongoing Mother's Day promo which will run until May 18, 2013. For only P649.00, one can avail of facial, diamond peel, hand paraffin, and back massage. The regular price for all is P1,900.00. So it is already a good buy. Still the gift certificate has no expiration and it can be given in a form of gift if you wanna give it to your loved ones.
