My Nails Got "Spiced" at Spice Body Spa and Salon

I was feeling sick that day. I don't know if it was just about the weather or it was just me. Maybe it was me .I feel like I need somebody to brighten my day. But I guess that somebody "special" was nowhere but across the globe. what can I do but do something before the blues get a "whack" at me.

So instead of bumming and feelin' somewhat lonely, I decide to check a new a body spa and a nail salon that a friend suggested that I check out.

After a very tiring and stressful day at the office, my feet dragged me to the outskirts of Tomas Morato and check out this newly-opened body Spa and salon combined.

Make way for the newest "pampering" haven there is in Tomas Morato---- SPICE BODY SPA and SALON. It is located at M3 Mezzanine Floor, FSS Bldg. II, 18 Scout Tuason cor, Scout Castor, Barangay Laging Handa, 1103 Quezon City.

Spice Body Spa and Salon is your "one-stop" establishment which offers a wide array of services from Hair care needs like Extenso, Rebonding, Traditional/Digital Perm, Hair Treatments (for Dry Hair, Damage Hair, Dandruff, Oily Scalp and even Hair-Loss), Hair and Make-up and even special home services like Bridal Make-up and Up-Styling. Aside from salon services, they also cater to those people who love to pamper their body.

I'm sure you will love their "pampering" services like: Massages, Body Scrub, foot Care (Foot Scrub, Foot Mask and Foot Massages), Waxing and Paraffin treatments.

I'm sure you all are curious what serviced I availed when I visited this new salon. Since I just got my hair color that time, as much as I wanted to a have new color again lol, I chose to have my nails done, since this is the most "deprived" part of my body most of the time.

I don't have the nicest pair of feet and hands, but I believe despite it being not "pleasing" to the eyes, I still have to make sure that I still take care of it and make sure that it is taken cared of and pampering that it truly deserved.

Meet Mona, my nail technician that night. I really liked her because she made sure that whole process is "ouch-free". As we all know, most of the time, most clients like us we barely entrust our nail "in-grown" - the dead skin in our hands and feet, to someone new and "inexperienced" because we dread it being "murdered".

But to my surprise, Mona made sure that she got the dead skin and I can't recall if there was a moment when I said "ouch". To think that I had this very thick "dead" skin in my toe nails. She was simply amazing. To all of my friends who'w contented with their nail technicians even if it means having all the blood of at your sight, I really recommend that you check her out and experience an "ouch"-less mani-pedi.

I'm not used to choosing "pink" nail color but since I'm living it all out now-I chose "Purple Panic  from China Glaze nail color collection and "Quirky Smile" of Misa Nail Polish. Now that sounds interesting for nail clor name:)


                                           So loved the color, it was very eye-catching. Loved how nice the color "pink" looked so "pop" on me.

Aside from the massage and hand and foot services that they offer, Spice Body Spa and Salon also offers a very wide and extensive number of Hair and Salon needs that will surely cater to any client or customer.

SPICE BODY SPA AND SALON uses only the trusted and very competitive brands in demand in the Salon business like L'Oreal and Framesi , all of which are known for its expertise in both hair and coloring trends.

They all use these brands because they wanted to make sure that all clients are assured of quality and safety. They value every clients needs that's why, for Spice and Body Spa and Salon, the clients are on top mind.

Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq: Your Go-To "Down-South" Cuisine Restaurant in Quezon City

With the sudden rise of restaurants here in Metro, I cannot imagine if one can seriously patronize one restaurant with a particular cuisine.

In the metro alone, one cannot miss a restaurant. With the sudden surge of the restaurant and food business, there is at least one restaurant willing to suffice anyone's hunger in a beat.

I am so happy to share this one happy memory, (which turns out to be not a "memory" anymore) with Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq. My first encounter with Big Daddy Jay's was with Ultimate Taste Test 6 in Rockwell Tent Makati. They're one of the newest and upcoming food finds that should be in evry "foodie-must-try" list. Luckily, I am one of the first 1,500 guest (along with my kids) to have tried their yummy "baby back ribs". Even my kids had the same thought, it was indeed "DELICIOUSLY close to being DIVINE".

I made one realization and that is memories are not meant to be memories as is... because I am REUNITED with "best" Smoked BbqRibs in Town. How? I just found out that they opened their first branch at area. The best thing was - it was only blocks away from our house.

It was really funny though because the first time I saw their signage when the jeep that I was riding to incidentally passed by familiar signage that says, "Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq". The moment I got home, I have to check online if that is the same Big Daddy Jay's I've been raving back in UTT6.

So last week after the heavy downpour from office, I promised the kids that I will be taking them out for dinner. So I told them to get dressed and they asked," Mom was it far"? It's a common question because normally I would bring them somewhere far and new to their taste buds. They didn't knew that it was "delish" reunion.

Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq recently opened in our area (Project4, Q.C) last April 2013. So imagine how new they were in the area.

The owners told me that they were really grateful of the exposure they got from UTT6 since they only wanted to check if they will passed the discriminating palate of the foodies from the Metro.

Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq is known for their yummy "smoked and slow-cooked Bbq ribs" that came from "Southern Cuisine" in the U.S.

It was very cold that night so I guess , it is just right to treat the boys to an awesome dinner of "smokin" ribs.

Half SLab of Bbq Ribs Php410

The sides
cup of Buttered rice, Mixed veggies, Herbed Baby Potatoes and Grilled Corn-on-a Cob
My boys loved the baby potatoes!
Prices for the sides starts at Php25-30 only

 Honey Mustard Wings

Buffalo Wings

The Chicken wings is an awesome match with the slab sauce although it was really meant for the slab ribs. The rib sauce was so rich in flavor that you won't resist asking them the recipe (of course it's a top secret!!!).

When you visit Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq, don't forget to order their yummy 
Key Lime Pie for dessert. It's a perfect dessert to end your "Down-South Dinner" !!!

They also serve Imported Beers !!!

Location-wise, Big Daddy Jay's is not your ideal location but satisfied and craving customers kept coming back. I must say it was the ribs which really stood out even from the first time I've tasted it at "Ultimate Taste Test 2.0" in Rockwell Tent PowerPlant Mall.

When you sliced the ribs, it was so tender that you won't be needing the extra effort to do so. There are a lot of things to say about Big Daddy Jay's All American Bbq.
