Diamond Peel @Dermaesthetique Ortigas Review

It has been a week since I had my diamond peel treatment at Dermaesthetique in Ortigas but, yeah, it's never too late to share my experience. I went with my friend Jacky who frequents Dermaesthetique for diamond peels and IPLs. We went to the clinic in Ortigas although, as I found out, also has a branch in Quezon City.
Jacky and I rode a cab from ABS-CBN in QC and took the EDSA route going to SM Megamall. She said she wanted to go to the mall first before heading to the clinic, which is just at the back of building A. We bought some stuff at the National Bookstore and headed to the supermarket to get milk tea at Tea 101. Jacky was so happy upon knowing that the prices of the milk teas in the SM Megamall branch of Tea 101 cheaper than the Tomas Morato branch. We ordered Rock Salt Choco-- the taste was just heavenly!! I wanted to buy lumpia but Jacky told me not to as she said I might smell like vinegar when we have our diamond peel so I just got California Maki.
The building where De…

Wakanatsu Yakiniku, As Quaint as it Gets - A Short Review

I had not eaten in a Japanese restaurant for the longest time and so I did not really know what to expect when my sister and her husband invited me, along with my mom and my sister-in-law and my niece, to eat in Wakanatsu Yakiniku, a quaint Jap resto. I, of course, know of sushis, sashimis, and tempuras and that's about it.

Wakanatsu Yakiniku is located on the second floor of a buiding in front of Wishing Well bar in Angeles City.

The restaurant offers unlimited Japanese food. Forgive me but all I have are few photos and not a list of food of what we've eaten. It is the experience I had which I would like to share.

Wakanatsu Yakiniku could sit less than a hundred customers, with about ten tables. It is relatively small for a place that offers unlimited food.  It is quiant but I could not say cozy.

When we arrived in the restaurant, the first words I heard from the servers were "tanggalin po shoes nyo" ("take off your shoes") and not pleasantries nor greeti…

Nouvelle Clinic: A Review

I finally found time to go a skin clinic, this, with some prodding from my cousin Claudine. She said she has complementary vouchers from Nouvelle Clinic and we could have free diamond peeling. Nouvelle Clinic in Angeles City is relatively new. I think my cousin and I are one of the clinic's first customers. 

I had diamond peeling done on me quite a lot and I know which clinics do good and which ones are worth going back to, and Nouvelle is. 
We were greeted by the owner, whose name I forgot to ask. All I know is that we met fab fashion designer Brit Tripudio who is a brother of the owner. I really do not know as I have not asked a lot of questions. Brit said the grand launching of the clinic is in June. 
I would not want to delve on the prices but I could say their services and products are reasonably priced. The diamond peeling we had is for free and all we paid was the facial, and yes, what we paid was worth it although I hope the cleansing facial was a bit longer and more intense.…
