Great hair day

Last Sunday, me and my friends had our keratin hair treatment at Benefits Style Salon at Eastwood City. The keratin hair treatment’s original price of Php 1,250 was slashed down to Php 249. Thanks to megadealsph’s awesome deal a few weeks ago. For Php 249, we experienced high-end salon service.

We arrived earlier than our 6pm appointment but we just waited for around five minutes before we were called. The stylist who took care of me is Vince. He shampooed my hair first before applying the keratin cream to my hair. He then wrapped my hair with cellophane and let it stand for about 30 minutes. While waiting for the 30 minutes to be over, customers are treated to a relaxing shoulders and back massage. I was looking at the other customers and it looked like they were enjoying their massage. However, it was a bit of a funny experience for me as I was too stiff while he was massaging my shoulders and back because I am ticklish. After the massage, I had my eyebrows threaded. It was kinda painful but it was worth it. Eyebrow threading is worth Php 150. After that, Vince washed my hair with warm water and blow dried it. I was happy with the result because my hair was soft, tangle-free and no frizz.

What I also like about the salon is that their magazines are up-to-date. No back issues from way back when. They also offer complementary drinks – iced tea, coffee or water. And the staff were so friendly. I would definitely go back to Benefits Style Salon.

Razon's of Guagua

Razon's of Guagua is famous for its delicious halo-halo and pansit luglog. Whenever I crave for halo-halo, I always go to their Eastwood City Walk branch to satisfy my cravings. Their halo-halo is composed only of macapuno, sweetened banana, leche flan and a lot of milk. What makes the halo-halo different from the others is the ice. The smooth and fine texture of the ice they use makes their halo-halo stand out. This is the only halo-halo I can finish all by myself.

A few weeks ago, my friend has been telling me to join Razon's contest on Facebook. You only have to post a picture on their fan page and the top 3 entries with the most number of likes will win a Nokia C6 each. I am not fond of joining contests since I am not lucky enough to win any. But when I checked their fan page and saw that there were only a few entries, I immediately searched for Andrei's picture taken last year at Razon's of Guagua.

This is the first time that I joined a contest like this and I really want to win. Please help me win by following the two easy steps below:

1) Please like the fan page of Razon's of Guagua in this link.

2) Please like Andrei's picture (entry by Jeng Nepomuceno-Silo) at the fan page's photos. Andrei is wearing a black jacket in the picture, holding a spoon and trying to reach for his halo-halo as posted below. Or to make it easier for you, you can click Andrei's picture below or click this link once you have liked their fan page.

I would really appreciate your help. And if you would like to join the contest too, please click here for the contest mechanics. The top 3 entries will win a Nokia C6 each and the 4th placer up to the 10th placer will win gift certificates.

Many many thanks to you in advance!
