Top 7 Commercials That Ate My Brains

I am like a sponge when it comes to commercials and product jingles. I think I am the average Jane that all advertisers think of when they create their advertisements because more often than not, I end up humming that jingle I heard on the radio all through out the day.

It used to drive my colleagues at work crazy. Close to smacking me with their laptops.
Adverts that eat my brains and leave a permalink on it
Being that commercial and jingle absorber that I am, here are my top 7 current commercials.

Bad Service + Good Food = Viewpoint Tagaytay

The title of my post is already a dead giveaway of what is in store for you at this place. But I know you like reading what is going in my brain regions (oh dear 2 readers of mine) so here are the details of my experience at Viewpoint Tagaytay restaurant and inn.

And just so you know, I am big proponent of customer service so this is going to be a very bumpy post. Fasten your seat belts.

Getting Hot and Heavy @ Nuvo Hot Spring Resort

Since one of Deep Tissue Massage boy's closest friends is about to go to Palawan, his entire posse decided to spend one last outing at Nuvo Hot Spring Resort.
@ Laguna hot springs! Look at that sexy lil' man getting all the ladies' attention. Das what I'm talkin' 'bout!
So off we all went to Los Banos to get steamed like boiled potatoes in a Laguna private resort. Little did we know it was going to be more like a miniature singing competition against other nearby resorts.

Adventures of Spa Girl #9: Wensha Spa Antipolo

When I heard that Wensha Antipolo opened, I was raring to try it out. I mentioned in my other post here that I enjoyed my time in Wensha Spa, Panay Ave (Timog) thus I wanted to try their newer branch.
Look at the Wensha Spa lady in the picture, so effin' relaxed like putty
So I hauled a skeptical-if-he-would-like-Wensha Spa Deep Tissue Massage boy there, but setting his expectations that we will not be together most of the time. He was amenable to that considering we don't talk much when we do spa time anyway.

P.S. Read until the end of the blog post. Sad ending. *huge sigh*

Potipot Zambales Resort Trip: Potipot Island

This will be my final post on this topic. *insert sheepish emoticon*

If you have been avidly checking on my blog dear reader, you know that this will be my 7th post regarding the trip to Potipot Island. I saved the best blog post for last, my experience on the island itself.
To be completely honest, I am not a beach person. I hate that sand gets everywhere (why is there sand on my butt?!) and the waters have living organisms swimming out and about (is that a stingy jelly fish or a safe one?). So it was a huge surprise for me that I enjoyed this island and its beaches immensely.

Adventures of Spa Girl #8: Potipot Gateway Massage

I will keep this short and sweet. After our long drive to Potipot Gateway resort, we decided to book 2 massages in our room. You had the option to get your massage beach-front but both Deep Tissue Massage boy and I didn't want to get all nekkid and oiled up in front of the South China Sea.


Potipot Zambales Resort: Food @ Potipot Gateway Resort, SAVORS

Annnnd we are now at post # 5 on my Potipot Zambales trip. Just two more blog posts  on our Zambales resort trip and I will be done on this. I purr-romise. :) 

Now, we will talk about food. We had free food breakfast, lunch and dinner as part of the voucher we bought that I mentioned in this post. Potipot Gateway Resort has its own restaurant so we were kept well fed (save for 1 instance where they didn't have the food we wanted available in the kitchen.)

Potipot Zambales Resort: @ Potipot Gateway Resort

Here is post # 4 on my Potipot Zambales resort trip. Are you already feeling a bit fed up with the Potipot posts? :p Well prepare to brave through another one. This one is all about Potipot Gateway Resort.
Potipot Gateway Resort
We went to this resort in Potipot instead of the more famous ones because of this voucher I bought back in October of last year. It was suuuuch a sweet deal that as soon as I called this Potipot Gateway resort and they verified that they have rooms free on the date that I wanted to avail the promo, I whipped out my plastic and charged away!

Potipot Zambales Resort Trip: How to Get to Potipot Gateway Resort

This is post # 3 of my Potipot Zambales Resort Trip series. We got lost on our way to this Zambales resort :-p, which is a classic Deep Tissue Massage boy and Spa Girl move. We got to Candelaria just fine but, we could not find Potipot Gateway Resort.


So if you are on your way to this resort, and you are already in Candelaria, Zamables (map on how to get to Candelaria here), here are some tips on how to get there.

Potipot Zambales Resort Trip: Subic Stop over @ Meat Plus Cafe

I researched on which Subic Free Port Zone resto was a must try. And the name Meat Plus Cafe popped up in almost every blog I visited. So, we tried it on our way to Potipot Gateway Resort.

Potipot Zambales Resort: Valentines Day Roadtrip

I am back from my Potipot Gateway Resort trip, my 2 or 3 readers! I mentioned in another post that I was prepping for a trip to the Potipot Gateway Resort for Valentines day and we just got back from that trip. I have so much to say because bottom line it was suuuuuch an Uh-mazing trip.

But I don't want to end up being too long winded, I know how long paragraphs turn most people off. So, I will cut my whole adventure up into a few different posts. See the links down below for all the individual posts per topic.

Let's start off with our road trip to the Candelaria, Zambales resort that we stayed in which is Potipot Gateway resort.

Gong Cha Tea: Is it really THAT good?

A while back, I did a review on Serenitea and Aileen commented that I should try Gong Cha Tea as well. So try I did, with Deep Tissue Massage boy and his friends.
Yeah, I know, I should use a camera better than my BB Curve's

Take 2! Pan de Amerikana's Upside Down Resto

Another breakfast place that opens as early as 6 am (they close at 7 pm) is Pan de Amerikana in Katipunan. If their Marikina branch boasts of being the first Chess Themed resto, this one on the other hand claims to be the the first and only upside down restaurant in South East Asia.
This really is a piano on the ceiling. I did not just rotate the picture.

Revisiting Banchetto

It was 2 am and I was craving for something crazy good to invade my tummy. So Deep Tissue Massage boy, my sister, my baby dog and I went to the only place that I knew was still open on this  early Saturday morning. Banchetto.

Adventures of Spa Girl #7: Footloose

Admittedly, this may not sound like it is a massage place. In fact, when I read the sign they had outside, my brain kept on showing me an image of Kevin Bacon in his signature Footloose the movie outfit --- wife beater and acid wash jeans. That aside though, I still decided to try the place out because it was raining terribly hard on a Tuesday morning in Makati and I had no where else to go.
