FLIRT Waxing Lounge opens a new branch in Mandaluyong



Things have been pretty hectic lately. My baby started his summer class a few weeks ago so my hubby and I adjusted our schedules for him. Everything in school is new to him and until now, he still seemed a little bit overwhelmed but slowly adjusting. A while ago when I accompanied him in their classroom he didn't want to let go of my hand but when I told him that I'll just be outside and I'll wait for him to finish, he didn't cry anymore.

So the few hours of "Me time" that I got to spend at Flirt Waxing Lounge last week was so precious. It was a very relaxing one. Remember my post about Flirt last year? This time, they recently opened a new branch near California Gardens Condominium in Mandaluyong (just across Robinson's Grocery Store). It's very near to my place and my kid's school so it's very convenient for me.

This branch is a bit smaller tan their Kapitolyo (Pasig) branch but same relaxing ambiance, posh interior and quality of service.

I love this pink couch! I picture my own makeup studio with this type of girly couch.

They only use high quality products and I love that everything is neat. And it's very important that they sterilize their tools before using too.


They let me try the Flirt Combo 1 (P560). It includes manicure, pedicure and foot spa. It's very sulit especially if you have plenty of time to relax. I love how the staff massaged my hand and feet. And my favorite part was the cold gel. It really soothes tired feet.

One more thing, I seldom go to salons for a mani and pedi because I'm afraid that if I let someone  clean my nails, I'd get ingrowns. I specifically asked the staff not to cut the sides of my nails and I was very happy that they listened. Didn't feel a bit of pain. I'm not afraid anymore and I'm very happy to find people who can do my nails regularly.

For my toes, I asked for an ORLY purple with glitters nail color.



And next for me to try is their signature service which is waxing. Here's a photo of their posh waxing room.

I love the fact that I don't have to go to the mall to have  a waxing service anymore.


Here's a list of their current services:

My Current Favorite Dishes at Max's Restaurant




One of my family's favorite things to do during our free time is dining out (eating new dishes and trying out new restos). We are quite adventurous when it comes to food and I realized I haven't been sharing our food adventures in this blog anymore. Don't worry, I'll try my best to blog more often.


I haven't dined at Max's for years. I think ever since their "eat all you can" chicken which my co-workers before and I tried I think 3 times times. I got fed up with their chicken because of that. But 
I did hair and makeup for a prenup photoshoot a few weeks ago in Antipolo. After the successful photoshoot, my clients treated the whole team with a dinner at Max's Restaurant in Blue Wave Marikina. They ordered Max's fried chicken (of course!), Tinapa Fried Rice, Sizzling tofu and Monggo guisado. After that I fell in love with Max's dishes once again. I really really enjoyed that dinner, it made the tired feeling go away. I liked most the Tinapa fried rice (oh so good!) I think they made it for the Lenten Season only. You guys have to try it before it's gone like McDonald's Twister Fries. And also the Monggo Guisado (I liked how they cooked it not too thick and it has a hint of chicharon flavor). And lastly the Sizzling Tofu...one of the best dishes of Max's.


I can't forget the food that we ate that day so I asked my hubby to have dinner there a few days ago so he could taste the tinapa rice I've been raving about. He liked it too! But we didn't order the monggo because he doesn't eat foods high in uric acid.

So there....I highly recommend that you try these foods the next time you eat there :)
