My South Salon Experience

Finally I got bored with my dark hair ! I really thought I could carry dark hair for a long time but I was wrong. The other night, I came to my senses "It's time to make a change". (ala Micheal Jackson lang ang banat ng loka. =))

Then yesterday immediately when I woke up, I told my hubby that I'll be going to the salon. (determinado talaga).

My target: South Salon in Alabang. I heard that they are well known for their hair coloring expertise . Thanks to Melai and Patty who gave me good feedbacks about this beauty shop.

I risked coming on a  Monday because I thought it would be quieter. Alas I was wrong the place was jamp acked with clients!  Good thing they have a slot for walk in client like me. =)

Also thank goodness for Henry Sumbillo who also happens to be one a co-parent in my daughter's school, immediately took charge and instructed his 2 assistants Pearly & Deah to work on me. Honestly these girls are good on what they do.

After almost 10hours of  treating, coloring, moisturizing, rinsing and trimming.


My strong feature became softer! I love my honey comb blonde! Thank you Henry for introducing me to colors! =)

NAILED: Nfu Oh Nail Lacquer

This week I'm wearing a holographic!

Love this color. Down side is the brush is too hard that I need to wait for the first coat to dry before I can apply the second & the third one.  

Got this from the queen of nail polish herself Pammy.

Weeee! Holographically amazing!

RAVE: Proactiv 3 step System to clear skin

I've seen Jennifer Love Jewitt,  Avril Lavigne and Justine Bierber advert about his product and I though   does this product really work? They are so pricey but I'm willing to give it a try.

Then my 15 year old daughter had a massive zit attack on her forehead for almost a year now and it doesn't go away. 

Knowing how skin go crazy on this stage of adolescence. I panicked and try to find some remedy on my daughter's escalating skin condition. 

Here's she covering her  forehead with loads of hair. 

No parent would like to see their daughter suffer from pimple scars until they grows up. 

 So I decided to get her some Proactiv products for her to try.  

Product says: 

Our micro-crystal medicine and 24/7 Skin Care Advisor support for ActivMembers™ are just two parts of our more powerful, more complete acne treatment.

  • This medicated Renewing Cleanser is made with new, exclusive micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide - featuring smaller, finer particles designed to quickly penetrate pores to start killing acne-causing bacteria on contact. Tiny exfoliating beads gently remove dirt, excess oil and dead skin cells to help keep pores from clogging.

  • Use twice daily, morning and night.
  • Treat whole face. Dampen skin.
  • Apply a small amount (dime size) with gentle fingertip massage for 1-2 minutes.
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry.

  • This refreshing, alcohol-free toner helps remove impurities and excess oil so your skin looks and feels clean, soft and refreshed -- not tight and dried out. Soothing botanical agents gently balance your skin tone.

  • Use twice daily, morning and night.
  • Treat whole face. Apply small amount (dime size) with cotton ball or pad.
  • Allow to dry. Do not rinse off.

  • The repairing acne treatment is a feather-light medicated treatment that gets deep into clogged pores faster but is designed to be gentler on the skin. It's an oil-free formula that's safe for your entire face.

  • Use twice daily, morning and night.
  • Apply small amount (pea size) with fingertips on any affected areas.
  • Allow to dry. Do not rinse off.

There's also a refining mask but I'm not so sure if she uses this one though.

This therapeutic clay mask is designed to soothe irritation and heal blemishes—as well as to help keep breakouts from getting started.
  • Blemish-free skin is good. But flawless, radiant skin is better.
  • Fans call it their "secret weapon." Allure Magazinecalls it "best of beauty."
  • A 6% concentration of antibacterial sulfur works as part of our Combination Therapy® to heal and help prevent acne.
  • Vitamin-enriched omegas help keep skin balanced and toned.
  • Put the clay mask on your face, put your feet up for 15 minutes, then rinse it off.
  • That’s all it takes to see radiant, healthier-looking skin, with refined texture and tone, reduced appearance of pores and wonderful clarity.
  • Use it two or three times a week and we promise, your skin will thank you.
  • Just a dab works wonders as an overnight treatment for stubborn pimples.

I bought this set  in HK for HKD 699.00 about Php 4,194.00 approximately. 

 Anyway, after 2months of using Proactiv.

Here's a photo my teenager in two weeks ago. 

Sorry the photo was taken quite blurry  I have to zoom it in. =)) 

But nevertheless. I can see that my teenager is more confident now than before and she loves it! =))

So Proactive is a rumor  that really works after all.

Have you tried Proactiv? What can you say about it?

Food Encounters

Every time I go on a trip Food Encounters are too hard to resists.  so let me share with you what I had last week. 

Destination Hong kong

Braised rack of lamb 

apple juice and some red wine

D wasn't able to eat on the plane so she asked me if we could have something at her fave noodle shop Crystal Jade. Some Si Long Bao (pork dumplings) and chicken noodles soup.

Cold Soya Milk and oolong tea 

I also had some wonton noodles.  Luch is DONE

But dinner came so quick! We had japanese food at HIT is Harbour City 


The following day is no excuse not to eat so we only had Char Sui Fan ( pork asado lang po) and Nai chaa ( Milk Tea) sa isang karinderia. 

Saka lumafang ng madaming fruits. Dinner time was private to no pictures. pa-demure muna ako. =))

Then Sunday is a huge Dim Sum  lunch with our HK friends. 
Walang puknat ang kainan. We lasted til 3pm.=))

Other days I can't post as you already know that food is almost like a hobby with us family. =))

 So Dukan diet was wasted in just a week! Waaaah!
