No Italian restaurant is safe when my friends and I are around.

We visited Joey Pepperoni at the DBP-Makati to take advantage of their Pizza All-You-Can Promo. Since we all love great Italian food, I thought this was the best way to catch up with each other.

We ordered both the Mushroom Pepperoni and Ham and Bacon with bottomless iced tea. We also included a plate of Mozzarella Sticks and Pesto Pasta. About ten minutes after taking our order, the servers arrived with our food.

The pizzas were thin crust and stuffed with toppings, just the way we liked it. The Mushroom Pepperoni pizza was a great combination of vegetables and meat but I found the Ham and Bacon too oily.

The Mozzarella sticks were thick and filling, unlike the others I've tasted. The pasta, however, lacked taste.

Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and the talk we had.

Price Range: Php100 - Php500

_Thinking about where to go for lunch has been a daily ordeal for me and and my office mates. Being in the central district also gives us few choices to choose from when thinking about where to eat so we often stick with the usual. But when we see a poster announcing the coming of a new variety of McDonald's Burger, we definitely made sure to try how Big and Tasty it is.

I've only got to try McDonald's regular burger, cheeseburger and double cheeseburger but my office buddy is really a burger fan. I once teased her about how crazy it is to eat a quarter pounder but she just laughed and told me to try it too. Nah ah, I'm not really a burger fan, but this Big and Tasty thing captured my fancy.

The Big and Tasty costs P145 for a burger, fries and drinks. A little expensive right, but after giving it much thought, I can surely say it's worth it. The burger patty is big, and juicy unlike their other burgers. I've later learned the patty used here is the same kind used in quarter pounder. The burger is also stuffed with lots of lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. I first thought that I may not get easily get fed up of the veggies but I actually enjoyed it. The burger is so tasty you'll gonna finish it to the last bite and end up definitely full and satisfied.

This Big and Tasty burger is made even yummier with a unique Smokey sauce that has certain sweetness and spiciness in it. The cheese also made the burger more pleasing to my taste and made me munch it with so much gusto.

If you haven't tried this McDonald's Burger yet, I really hope you'll get past through staring at the menu and actually order it because, man! This is really good! How about you? What's your Big and Tasty Moment?

I always get lazy to fix my hair because it takes too much time. As a result, my hair looks frizzy, tangled, and unmanageable everyday. To cover up this hair problem, I frequently tie it in pony tails. However, tying my hair up just added to my problems. I decided to buy a product to somehow lessen the dryness of my hair. My friend suggested Vitress Hair Polish which claims to make your hair look softer and smoother. Thinking that it might be worth it, I decided to give it a try.

Vitress Hair Polish comes in a pink tube container. It is a light and non-greasy cream used for intense hair moisturization. Upon receiving the product, I immediately squeezed the right amount of it on my palm and ran it through my hair. After the application, I noticed that my hair went a little shinier and softer. Grateful with the instant result, I applied it all over my hair and quickly saw good developments. My hair became softer, smoother and glossier. Its roughness decreased too.

Another thing I love about this product is its light smell. When I applied it, my hair smelled nice and not overpowering. It is easy to apply, non-greasy, and affordable. I can easily buy another if the tube is already empty.

The only disadvantage of this product is that its effect lasts only for a few hours. If you want to maintain its effect for longer hours, you have to reapply it often.

Overall, Vitress Hair Polish is great for dry and frizzy hair. It is perfect for the polished on-the-go look too. If you have unmanageable hair and you’re lazy to fix it everyday, this product might help you. Give this product a try and give your own judgment.

I have tried different facial wash like Pond's, Olay, Dove, and Eskinol just to get rid facial oil, pimples, and all others. These facial cleansers are all okay. I have tried almost all types of Pond's facial wash - all in all, I can only give five over ten rate for it. Olay and Dove facial cleansers are just fine but none of their cleansers meets my expectation.

I stopped using facial cleansers for about three months since then. I have lost my interest trying and hoping that there will be one brand that will be good enough for my face - to give complete solution to my facial skin problems. However, I went to my favorite beauty store and looked for a new brand for a facial wash. As I checked out each brand’s newest product, one brand caught my eyes.

Garnier’s new Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub has a great packaging and I love its scent. When I saw this new product, I did not think twice to purchase it. I was so excited to use it, so I immediately went home and tried it.

After I washed my face with it, I felt so refreshed and my face was so cleansed. At first, I enjoyed using it because of its smell but after a week of using it, I observed that my face is improving. I got rid of my oily skin, pimples, and other facial skin frustrations. It became now my best buddy - my favorite facial wash. I am completely satisfied with its effect on my skin.

However, even though this product is very effective, you should be careful using this. I have experienced many times that when some of it gets in my nose accidentally - I felt so irritated. Also, I recommend this facial wash because it is worth your money, but for those who have a sensitive skin, I cannot advise you to use it. If you really want to try it, I suggest that you should apply it on the back of your hand first before using it on your face to test if it will not irritate your skin.

My sister bought a voucher for a foot spa session for three at Pia Jane Salon & Spa. One Sunday afternoon, we visited the establishment to use said voucher and see what they had to offer.

We would have missed the place had my sister been less observant. A two-story establishment, the lower ground floor covers the salon part (hair and make-up) while the upper level is reserved for their spa services (massage and spa).

For ordinary eyes, perhaps, the place was nice enough. I, however, expected more. From its appearance, the place is no different from the handful of salons and spas I have been to since my mid-teens. And from the price of their services, you would expect a nicer ambiance.

Pia Jane's Foot Spa Service

We had to wait for over an hour to be serviced because there were a lot of clients. When we finally had service, we were sitting at a fervid part of the spa. They soaked our feet for more than half an hour on warm water and bath scrub.

When they were finally able to make room, we were transferred to the cooler and more comfortable part of the spa. I sat in a separate couch from my mother and my sister and we all had our feet massaged. Plus, the air was cooler. The staff who massaged my feet was skilled. So good, in fact, that I fell asleep for five minutes or so. The massage lasted for 15-20 minutes.

The experience was pleasant once we got passed the look of the place and the initial discomfort. 

Pia Jane Salon & Spa is located at 574-C Shaw Blvd, Mandaluyong City.

Price Range: Php100-Php1000 for Salon Services and Php200-Php1000 for Spa Services

If you're a '90s bug or has an aunt or uncle who is, chances are you've heard of the pop ditty called Love Will Lead You Back. It was recently remade by local R&B Princess Kyla. Its original singer is no less than Russian-American songstress Taylor Dane who will have a concert with rocker Edwin McCain this June 1 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
