114th Civil Service Commission Anniversary Government Choral Competition

It's the time of the year again where choral groups from different government agencies compete for the much awaited Government Choral Competition in celebration of the Philippine Civil Service 114th Anniversary. As an Alto 2 member of the Pag-IBIG Fund Chorale, joining and winning these competitions has always been something I look forward too. As a matter of fact, joining and winning International/Local Choir competitions and festivals is #4 on my Bucket List.

Events Planning

How to Organize a Nail Spa Party

Whether you are celebrating your birthday, hosting a bridal shower/ baby shower, or if you just simply want to  bond or  catch up with your girlfriends,  a Spa Party is a perfect way to celebrate the day. A great combination of Good friends, Spa Treats, Delicious food and Refreshing drinks makes up a good Spa Party that will be the talk of the town.

So the next question is, how to have a Spa Party? 

And what if ?

1. You don't have enough time to arrange and prepare for the party.
2. You only have 2 to 3 hours to spare for the event.
3. You and all your girlfriends are all working in Makati (like we do!).
4. All your girlfriends are free on a weekday, after office hours only.

then this article is for you. Here's how :

Make a guest list and keep it small

You are organizing this party to relax after all, so keep it small and intimate by limiting your guests to only close friends. It will be more fun if there are less than 10 people, since most of nail salons can only accommodate this much. This will also ensure that everyone gets to bond with each other and experience all the pampering you and your friends deserves.

Three (3) Healing Spa Services to Try at Thai Raksa Healing Spa

I celebrated Social Media Day with a Bloggers SPArty held at Thai Raksa Healing Spa in Shaw Boulevard last June 28. For bloggers like me who usually sleeps for 3 to 4 hours only, a SPArty is a perfect time to network and get to know bloggers in the industry. We celebrated #SMDay with new learnings and new experiences with the  help of traditional, integrative and oriental medicine practitioners from Thai Raksa Healing Spa

SPArty with Blogger friends in celebration of Thai Raksa's Healing Spa 1st year anniversary
We learned a lot about the 3 modalities  of healing  like massage, acupunture and reiki. The owners Ms. Catherine Joyce and Mr. Rudy Corro Jr with in-house acupunturist Mr. Wilfredo Apinado explained to us the benefits and the power of these disciplines to achieve health and wellness to everyone. It was an event full of sharing, food and laughter. 

One-on-one interview with Thai Raksa founder and Nepal trained psychic, Ms. Catherine Joyce

Thai Raksa (meaning Thai healing) was conceived to provide a unique and cutting edge healing spa with a repository of different and effective healing spa with a repository of different and effective healing modalities like massage, acupuncture and reiki (energy healing).

And the best way to describe these modalities is by experiencing it.

1. Acupunture
Acupunture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It's based on the theory that energy, called chi (chee), flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. This is done by putting a very thin needles into your skin at certain points on your body. This is done to influence the energy flow. Sometimes heat, pressure, or mild electrical current is used along the needles.

Vlogger Alice Mate trying out the Anti ageing Cosmetic Acupunture
At first you will feel a little numbness for a while but it will make you feel very relaxed. I was amazed how this hair thin needles do wonders for your body. 

2. Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life source energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Trying out Reiki for the first time
Yes, I needed this stress reduction technique and so I volunteered to be the first one to experience it. For some, the procedure will make you anxious for a while because  you might think that Reiki is a paranormal activity/technique. But there is science to it, please check the infogram below. 

After a 30 minute session of balancing my chakras, Ms. Cathy asked if I am experiencing difficulty in breathing and having back aches all the time. I said yes. She explained that it is because I am having problems with suppressed emotions. She said something about "Mahina/ manipis sa bandang dibdib", based on the infogram, I think it has to do with #4. Over-all. my aura's color is blue, and I googled what it means and I found out that......(drum rolls, please!!!). 

I agree! :-)

3. Organic Body Scrub with Swedish Massage
The healing power of touch is instinctive in human nature and when we formalize that instinctive touch into massage, it becomes a powerful healing tool.

Thai Raksa's organic body scrub uses coffee, sea salt and lavander. And I must say that I will be back soon for another session. I love it and I am recommending it.


Thai Raksa Healing Spa was established to provide a new experience to clients to facilitate healing by manipulating energy meridians through touch, needling,a nd non-invasive manipulation to achieve energy balance so the chi, blood, fluids and essence inside the body is reinvigorated.

Thai Raksa Healing Spa is located at
 #547 Shaw Blvd, Mandaluyong City
