Do Something New: Check Out Korean Spa Treatments
Don’t be afraid: you will most likely not end up like Conan O’Brian and Steven Yeun at their Korean spa visit. You do, however, have to get naked. In most Korean spas, you will have options of several rooms to visit – whether you want to relax in the various steam rooms, or saunas, or even indulge in some yummy Korean food meant to heal you between each room. Bring a Korean friend who can speak the language, and you’ll be set to come out refreshed.
Indulge In A Mini-Treat: Get a Facial
If you are not feeling up to getting the full treatment, get a mini-treat with a facial. Clear your pores, and enjoy the clean, refreshing feeling of getting a facial mask or scrub. Whether you choose to wrap your face in clay or opt for a peel, you will barely recognize the face staring back at you in the mirror when you’re done.
Reduce Stress With Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy is simply the process of using water to relieve and soothe pain and stress. While some spas offer hydrotherapy in the form of hot tubs, we are fans of spas that incorporate thermal or springs, where you can experience the benefits of hydrotherapy from a natural source. This is a true luxury, one that you’ll want to schedule a few vacation days for, as few places in the US have access to their own natural springs. One of the best-known places in the US is Glenwood Hot Springs, which has been providing a natural form of relaxation for over a hundred years.
Refresh The Whole Body With A Whole Body Wrap
There are an astonishing number of ways you can luxuriate in a full body wrap. Choose from algae or seaweed wraps, the classic mud, or use herbal body wraps to help release toxins, increase circulation, and in some cases, reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimples. Who could ask for more?
Most people don’t make time to take care of themselves and indulge. Coming back from a relaxing spa treatment will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the world. So why not start today?
Nothing beats spending some time outdoors when the weather is gorgeous, but if you have kids it can be difficult to find an activity that suits everyone. Younger children will not be able to do as much as older kids and teenagers, plus you need to take differing levels of fitness into account. But don’t worry because there are lots of fun outdoor pursuits the whole family can try – whatever the weather!
Cycling is great for kids of all ages. Toddlers and babies can sit in a child seat on the back of mum or dad’s bike while older children can speed along under their own steam. If you like the sound of a day out on the bikes, make sure you pack plenty of snacks and plan a suitable cycle route. It is also important to dress appropriately – and that includes cycle helmets for everyone!
Horseback riding is just as much fun for novices as it is for more experienced riders. There are riding stables in many rural areas, most of whom will be happy to organize family friendly rides along local trails. Riding is good exercise and even younger children will be able to head out on a ride. You may even find that your children are bitten by the horse bug and start clamoring for their own pony. If so, you can invest in horse tack from the onestopequineshop.com.
Hiking is a good way to spend quality time in the Great Outdoors. If you live close to some areas of natural beauty, pack a rucksack with snacks and drinks, and take the kids for a hike. You can enjoy a bit of fresh air and exercise, plus some great views if you hike up a hill or two. Younger children won’t be able to manage long hikes, but older children and teenagers should have no problem covering several miles on foot.
Soccer in the Park
When you don’t have the time to travel far, a quick game of soccer in the local park is great exercise and an important family bonding session. Everyone can take part – even mum! So take your children for a kick-about at the weekend and burn off all those extra calories you piled on during the week.
Nature walks around a local park or nature reserve are perfect for families with younger children. Smaller kids can be wheeled around in a buggy or pram if they aren’t able to walk. You can stop to examine flowers, plants and insects, or just take the opportunity to have a chat about things. And if the weather is nice, take a picnic.
Surfing and Body Boarding
If you are lucky enough to live near the beach, you may be able to go surfing or body boarding if there is enough swell. As long as it’s hot, or the kids have wet suits to keep them warm, fun will be had by all.
Exercise is important and we all need to do more of it, so instead of letting your kids sit in front of a screen every weekend, encourage them to spend a bit more time outdoors with the rest of the family!
Since we were just nakiki-Wi-Fi with our SIL, they almost had a month long internet connection problems with Globe (intermittent WLAN connection) and finally resolved this week by getting a new line and modem, we were also greatly affected. Haha! There were times that I had to check out emails on a not so nearby computer shop rentals, which I wonder why are they no longer in an air-conditioned area and not to mention the screaming DOTA players. Hehe. Not really suitable for me who sometimes need to rush out on some writing assignments.
I also felt sad that I had to let go of another blog which was given by a dear blogger friend. I really have no choice because I don’t have the funds to keep it up. Another thing, I need to fix some problems offline. I even have to turn down a very good offer (job) from a friend for some reasons. Haay! It’s a blow by blow conflicts that are really taking a toll on our lives. We’re still struggling and still coping up. Time and again, I know things will get better in the end. My mom got hospitalized late last week due to high blood sugar level and we were not able to visit her Just received a call late yesterday from my sister that she was finally discharged (Thank God!) and taking insulin shot were no longer recommended by her new doctor. Ian and I were so looking forward to visit her soon in their new home somewhere in south.
Kids are doing ok in their new school ( First Periodical Test are up by early next month). I have a lot of catching to do with regards to their milestones. Still keeping up with taking pictures of them every now and then, only I don’t get to share them lately on FB nor Instagram. Another thing, I hope to get some freelancing jobs again.
Catch up soon again… I hope to have some happy and cheery posts next time
Zesto-O has always been a part of my childhood because my mom would always keep a tetra pack in my lunch box I think, most of my classmates do too! haha! Now that I am a parent myself, I share and do the same for my kids as well. They do have Zesto-O as part of their baon. Very affordable and thirst quenching. Love the different fruity flavors. Actually, I am just a couple of years older from my favorite drink :=)
Zest-O Corporation celebrated a milestone last June 18, 2015 as they celebrated 35 fruitful years of providing consumers with quality products that have touched so many lives. Zest-O employees, suppliers, trade partners and special guests assembled in full force at Blue Leaf Filipinas to honor the occasion. It was truly a grand affair that Zest-O deserved. Imagine 35 striving years in producing the best consumer products possible, consequently producing 35 years of making Filipinos happy.
Setting the bar high, El Gamma Penumbra, the grand champion of the recent Asia’s Got Talent, kicked off the commemoration with a jaw-dropping performance. They gave a spectacular show that gorgeously commenced the well-attended event. And to further capture the emotion of the night, they concluded their performance by revealing the 35th anniversary logo of Zest-O Corporation.
The hosts of the night were the lovely Amy Perez and the handsome Atom Araullo, who energetically lifted the spirits of everyone in the audience – sharing their own dose of Zest-O stories. They did an excellent job of securing the ecstatic mood of everyone from start to finish. It was definitely both happy and nostalgic for the whole Zest-O family as each had their own personal narratives towards the iconic orange juice drink.
The program moved smoothly as expected. To further elevate the celebration were special performances from the Prince of Pop, Erik Santos, the freshest hip-hop dancers, G-Force Poppers, and the rock n’ roll spirit of Joey Generoso. Zest-O employees also joined in the fun by engaging in an OPM Karaoke battle. Entertaining everyone present in the event, they sang songs that mirrored the Filipino nature of Zest-O. It was the perfect setup, which encapsulated Zest-O’s Filipino essence. The guests were up on their feet all night singing along to the eternal tunes of classic OPM songs.
It was a conglomeration of stars and VIPs that boosted the energy levels of everyone in the venue. VIPs, such as suppliers and trade partners, gave their undisputed support to the brand that has made an indelible mark on their lives. Each and everyone in the room could attest that Zest-O will forever be part of their young, teenage, and adult lives. And that is a clear-cut indication of a mega brand.
The participation of Mr. Alfredo Yao, Founder and Chairman of the Board, his children Ms. Carolyn Yao, Chief Finance Officer, and Mr. Jeffrey Yao, Chief Executive Officer, also made a big impact to the celebration. Carolyn led a heartfelt prayer before the program while Jeffrey admiringly introduced the hardest working man he has ever known, his father. Mr. Salvador Carrion, Chief Operating Officer, also gave his opening remarks that acknowledged the never fading support of their partners.
Many guests acknowledged that one of the most unforgettable parts of the program was the awe-inspiring speech of Mr. Alfredo M. Yao, the heart and soul of Zest-O Corporation. He delivered his speech with confidence and fervor, which resulted to a groundbreaking standing ovation. He breezed through his lines as if it were his 100th time to relay his message. All eyes and ears were glued to his presence while he was on stage. And his words penetrated into the hearts of everyone – motivating each person to work hard, to strive for something greater, and to become a leader on their own. It was a speech that was meant to inspire, motivate, and at the same, challenge everyone to work harder for a better and stronger Zest-O Corporation.
The night was filled with emotions – a kind of happiness mixed with nostalgia, especially during the walk through of the different historic jingles of Zest-O. Though the majority was reminiscent of the past, Zest-O countered it with the future – an exclusive first listen to the newest jingle of Zest-O. It’s definitely another jingle that would transcend time. As with all the jingles they have produced in the past, this one is another contender that would definitely leave a long-lasting mark in the ears of the public.
The celebration ended with a high and admiring note – a note of moving forward and an indication that the future will even be more promising for Zest-O. Just like what the toast signified, this 35th anniversary celebration connotes a new chapter for Zest-O – a new page that will be one for the books once more. They are already progressing and they are constantly improving their products, facilities, and technology to meet their objectives. And for Mr. Alfredo M. Yao, his dream of seeing Zest-O become an international brand remains firm. With the on-going initiatives of Mr. Alfredo Yao and the rest of the Zest-O Corporation, they are undoubtedly closer to their goal of globalization.
