Saturday, February 8, 2014
IF YOU like GOOD music performed by honest to goodness GOOD artists then make sure you catch “We Got The Love, The Greatest Hits Reunion.” The New Minstrels (Joey Albert, Chad Borja, Ray-An Fuentes, Ding Mercado, Louie Reyes, and Eugene Villaluz) and Circus Band (Hajji Alejandro, Pat Castillo, Jacqui Magno, Tillie Moreno, and Basil Valdez), the groups that dominated the local music scene in the 70s, will be back on stage for a very special one-night only show. This will surely be an amazing and very entertaining musical performance. And, the ticket prices are not bad, cheap actually, considering the names and number of artists involved in this one show.
“We Got The Love, The Greatest Hits Reunion” is on February 15 at the SMX, SM Lanang Premier. For tickets, call 285-1184, 0923-440-6374, 0923-961-4341, 0917-792-8910.
4. Do yoga…
… because yoga can make you healthy, wealthy and wise. Step on the mat, center yourself and be surprised with what you can learn from listening to your body. With yoga you can get to know your body, love it for what it is and what it can turn to. The benefits of this discipline, visible and not, are endless. After every class, you will emerge calm, thankful and feeling good. Plus, the positive aura and good vibes you exude will be very contagious (which will explain why you are extra attractive to everyone).
Holiday Gym & Spa along Torres Street offers daily yoga classes. Call (082) 222-3041.
5. Feast on the food of the gods…
… because unlike life, you know for sure that whatever chocolate you get from the box will make you feel good (you don’t have to wait for a gift. Go get a box, the kind you really fancy). Chocolate triggers feel-good chemicals in our brain, and the dark variety is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants that are beneficial for your heath. It’s safe to say that chocolates are good for the heart in more ways than one. That’s something to be happy about.
Get your chocolates at Marks & Spencer. Call M&S Abreeza Mall (082) 321-7231, or M&S SM Lanang Premier (082) 285-1293.
6. Eat a whole Crème Brulee cake…
…. not because you are bitter but because this confection is so light that you can finish an entire cake all by yourself. The buzz finally reached me and got to try it—and I loved it! Lachi’s Crème Brulee is a fluffy sponge cake with mildly sweetened whipped cream filling, custard topping with the contrasting crusty caramel.
Breaking into this confection is less sinful (so I think, and believe) because of its lightness in texture and very pleasant sprinkling of sweetness that I love in my desserts. You don’t need a date to finish an entire cake, but if you have a date, you can share, if you like.
Lachi’s is at Ruby Street, Marfori Heights. Call (082) 224 5552.
7. Even better, indulge in a dessert buffet at Sea Green Cafe!
Recently turned one, the Sea Green Café & Lifestyle Shop will be preparing something very special for everyone to indulge in—a buffet of their popular desserts— the Tablea, Tofu and Lemon Cheescakes, all created with healthier ingredients sourced out locally. This means an unending serving of these fabulous treats until you wave the white flag. Dating or date-less, take advantage of this rare extravagance for lunch and dinner on February 14th only. Oh, you won’t mind the extra calories if these are the treats you are having, believe me.
Sea Green Café & Lifestyle Shop is at Circumferential Road, Doña Vicenta Subd. Call (082) 305-4765.
8. Immerse in a pool of pure pleasure at Lazuli Spa…
… because like all the sweets you lavished on, you deserve it! There is no better place to luxuriate in this blissful moment than in Lazuli Spa. It’s a “Romantic Get-away” for you and yourself—a 120-minute indulgence that includes a Tea Tree Facial, Relaxing Swedish and Foot Massage, and if you have a date, the couples package includes an Anti-aging Facial, Lemongrass Foot Care, Traditional Combination Massage, Floral Bath or Foot Massage for 150 minutes. Emerge from Lazuli Spa relaxed and radiant. How’s that to end your day?
Lazuli Spa is at the Marco Polo Hotel, C.M. Recto Street. Call (082) 221-0888 loc 7280/7903.
All the single ladies (and men), put your hands up! Remember, to give your heart to who deserves it first and foremost—yourself. It is only that when you learn to love yourself that you can start loving others. :)
