LMJ Tour At The Zen Institute (Medical Spa)

The Zen Institute (Medical Spa) invited us to take a tour in their clinic and introduced to us the benefit of Stem Cells Therapy.

For the first part, we roam around the clinic. In this room, patients undergo to Colonic Irrigation. CI also known as colon hydrotherapy, colonic hydrotherapy, or a "colonic", is a treatment which is used "to wash out the contents of the large bowel by means of copious enemas using water or other medication. This treatment helps to loose weight, allows vital nutrients to be absorbed and leaves you feeling healthy and light.

The program also includes a coffee cocktail that promotes faster metabolism and improves the absorption of nutrients in the body.

This is the receiving area or waiting area located upstairs. I definitely like the color choices and it's style. Next, we got a closer look to other rooms for facial treatment, diamond peel, and other services. If you want to know their available service, click here.

The other side of the clinic, is the recovery room and surgery area. The longest time the customer stays in the recovery room is 24 hours.

Cha Station uses for stem cell therapy
After taking rounds and tour at The Zen Clinic, they prepared us merienda to energize ourselves.

After a while, in this area, we talked about the benefit of Stem Cell Therapy introduced by Dra MJ Torres.

Stem cell therapy is a type of cell therapy wherein cells are introduced into the damaged tissue so as to treat the disorder or the injury. Combining science and technology, The Zen Institute redefines Stem Cell Therapy, to make it work safely and effectively to every patient. Dra. Mary Jane "MJ" Torres says that "we have always maintained and observed our protocol based approach in all our programs. Now with this technology, Stem Cell Therapy, it takes both expertise and reputation of the doctor, as well as the clinic, to make this therapy work for you. Patients need to understand and realize how Stem Cell Therapy can dramatically change their lives."

Dra. MJ Torres shared us how she came up with this kind of treatment. Her mother had a partly Parkinson's disease at age of 65. At this age, her mother's brain is equivalent to 80 years old. Stem Cell Therapy puts into use the cells of the patient's own body and hence the risk of rejection can be reduced because the cells belong to the same human body. It can treat a number of conditions like Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injuries, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, cancer, diabetes and many others. The doctor itself tested it for herself to make sure it works and after 5 days of treatment she went back to the gym and work out. Until now, she's feeling good and alive.

She said that they cannot prolong our lives but they wanted to give us a quality life that we can have. If you're interested to know more about this treatment, visit one of their clinics or contact them through their phone number or facebook listed below.

All attendees were given a gift card for free treatment of selective services. I can't wait to go back to finally try it. Stay tuned for my separate review and if it's really the price.

PrinceDiaries: How I Keep My Son Healthy, Active and Strong

As a parent, one of my worries is if my son getting all the nutrients he needs for his body. It is important I always check what he eat, how they cook, where they came from and its nutrient content. But as much as I wanted him to avoid non-nutritious food, I can't because I'm working full time so choosing the products are very crucial to me.

I'm a bottle feeding mom and I wasn't able to breastfeed my son since day 1. Many people told me "magiging sakitin yan" or "magiging mahina ang utak niyan." These are the words haunted my mind for a couple of months when he was born so I tried my very best to give him all the things he needs including love and care.

Fast forward, my son is now 15 months old and he's very active, healthy and strong little boy who keeps roaming around our house, eating a lot of food (proud mommy here, he's not a picky eater), loves to sing, dance and read books. My secrets? I'll share it with you.

Aside from his milk, it is essential and necessary our kids eat vegetables and fruits everyday. Prince started eating solid food as early as 4 months old. Yes, I know some of you will say "diba dapat 6 months old magstart?" We can teach our kids in a different way, my son was ready to eat at that young age so we let him explore and taste foods that are easy to digest. Right now, I'm really happy with the result because he eats any food we give to him.


Babies sleep will vary from newborn up to 4-5 months old. Sleep has been shown to be important for maturation of infants’ brains and consolidation of their memories. Your child is getting enough sleep if he falls asleep easily and wakes up happily.


Motherhood taught me how to live in a simple way. Kids don't need extravagant toys. I noticed that my son is happier when I read him books, play with him, talk to him, sing him songs, go out with him and stroll outside. Showing and expressing your love to your children is definitely will make them happy inside and out.


If we can't go regularly outside the city and look for a field area with fresh air to let him play, we make sure to bring him in any indoor parks. Encouraging him to move more as part of a healthy lifestyle. They said that kids who are physically fit are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges.


As much as I wanted Prince to get all the nutrients from what he eat, I'm worried his meals are not enough so choosing the right vitamin supplement is needed. For me, I choose Nutri-10 plus because it's pack of Lysine, Taurine, Zinc and CGF (Chlorella Growth Factor) which ensure of a healthier, body and mind, greater vitality and energy, and greater resistance to disease.

Aside from the 4 growth factors of Nutri10 plus, it has Vitamins such as A, D3, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and C which help promote overall immunity, maximize physical growth and enhance brain development.

Before, Prince is taking 3 different types of vitamin supplement, but when we discovered Nutri-10 plus, we're now using 1 bottle of vitamin supplement. Why? Because he can get the same amount of vitamins from his previous supplement in just one bottle. Plus. it's not tough to give him this supplement since it tastes sweet orange which kids really love. Overall, we are satisfied with Nutri10 and will definitely stick with this.

Nutri10 plus is available in Mercury and Watsons nationwide. Nutri10 syrup 120 ml cost P160.00 while Nutri10 drops 30 ml cost P100.

Parent Town: An App For All Expecting And First Time Parents

Photo credit:
Being a first-time parent, I have a lot of questions, anxiety, and worries for my child. I guess all parents have this dilemma. Good thing in our generation, we have high-tech gadgets, application, and machines to reach out and communicate with others all around the world. One of great invention I encountered is Parent Town.

Parent Town is a mobile application compatible with Android and IOS phones, which has features and topics that can help not just parents but even pregnant and trying to conceive a child. Let me take you on a tour of this cool application.


1. This mobile application is FREE. You can download it in Google Play and App Store.
2. Parent town is user-friendly, even Titas of Manila will never have difficulty using this.
3. You can choose what topics you like and there are a lot of topics and discussion to choose from.
4. It has other features allow you to watch videos and share photos.
5. You can even post a question anonymously if you're not confident sharing your personal information.
6. Get an update straight to your email if someone replied to your question.


1. Needs a good internet to have an access to this application.
2. Notifications are bit delayed. I got a pop-up notification on my phone that someone liked the photo I posted but when I checked the notification tab, there's none. When I woke up the next morning, I checked again and my notifications were there.


Aside from problems with notification, I recommend this app to anyone. I wish I have this when I was still pregnant. Way back before, those days when I still have my little baby boy in my belly, I don't have close friends or millennial mom to ask for advice. I don't have any idea how this will work, what should I do, what are best for us, for him. So I rely on online articles, blogs, and my mother. This app can be your bestfriend. Experience is the best form of learning and it's good to learn from other's experience.

Download this app in Google Play for Android and in App Store for IOS

Food Review: Not Your Ordinary Pizza of Steveston Pizza

I'm a pizza lover. I even worked in Pizza company way back before because I want to know how they are made. So when I got a chance to attend a pizza food tasting event, hell yes, I didn't hesitate.

Steveston Pizza named from one of the village in Vancouver Canada and did you know that Steveston Pizza holds the Most Expensive Pizza in Guinness World of Record? Nader Hadami (owner) created a $850 (P40,000) worth of pizza packed with tiger prawns, lobster ratatouille, smoked Chilean steelhead, Russian caviar and a blanketing of white Italian truffles. That's really a very expensive pizza. Steveston Pizza Philippines is the official licensee of Steveston Pizza Canada.


They have three branches here in the Philippines, UP Town Center, Tomas Morato and Circuit Lane. This year of July they opened a new branch at Corinthian Garden Clubhouse in the populous Quezon City. Packed with high-speed wifi and strong mobile connectivity, the restaurant is the perfect place for busy college students or freelancers looking to get their work done without perky distractions.

Me and my college friend/bloggerfriend Amor of

I'm loving every corner and space of this restaurant. The place is well-cleaned, not overdecorated, has ideal conditioning system, convenient parking space, and relaxing ambiance. Though the location is quite hard to find, it's still worth of your visit. But like what the Canadian Ambassador Neil Reeder said during the opening, "The luckiest people right now are the 600 residents of (Corinthian) village who get to walk the street and have this pizza."


Marguerite Zero
This is not your ordinary pizza. Look how enormous it's size. Steveston Pizza offers 30 variants of one size, 12 inches pizza with toppings described as abundant, fully loaded and overflowing. Marguerite Zero topped with roasted garlic, anchovies, sweet caramelized onions, capers and argula. This perfectly seasoned delicacy is slathered only the freshest tomatoes, giving it a feisty burst of flavor as the anchovies and mozarella cheese create a mouthwatering contrast of salty and savoury. Cost of pizza is P499.

Aside from Marguerite Zero, Mr. Richard Go offered us the 4 best sellers pizzas. All their pizzas use premium and fresh ingredients, no processed food, no condiments needed plus crust is fluffy and chewy. Which is why they are unique with other Pizza restaurant. Mr. Go said they are raising the bar for preparing pizzas and their strategy is different from other similar players. They prepare their pizza one at a time so it's not commercial. They prepare it only when the customer order and then they have a sequence of layering the different ingredients with perfect balance and harmony.

I was a bit late so I didn't get some decent shot of pizzas. My excitement to taste all the pizzas was all over the place, so I took the nearest one which is Blue packed with rosemary smoked bacon, honey-glzed yam, fresh pineapple and feta cream sauce. If you're not a fan of blue cheese, this is not for you. It's prize is P899.

One of my favorite is Princess. It is in a list of the world's most accurately named platters. Embellished with the finest crab meat, tiger prawns, and shrimp, the crustacean combo sparks a seafood explosion at the very tip of your tounge. With it's tantalizing salty taste, it's no wonder why everyone's bowing down to this majestic meal. Prize: P1899.

When it comes to pizza I want to have lots of meat so this Caveman goes to my top pizzas of all the pizza I've ever tasted. Loaded with pepperoni, genoa salmon, back bacon, lean beef, and capocolli, it's pretty much impossible not to give in to the animal in you when this meat mania is practically begging to be your next victim. Prize of pizza is P899.

Japanese pizza packed with wasabi-scented teriyaki chicken breast, enoki-mushroos, and sesame seaweed (no tomato sauce). Cost of pizza: P899.


They also offer beverage, coffee, apple cider, and tea perfect for any type of pizza they have.

Mocha Hazelnut Smoothie: Salted Caramel Smoothie

Don't forget to order their icecream. They have one of the best flavors of icecream. Not too sweet, perfect balance of flavor, and made from fresh and natural ingredients. I love all of them but I guess my favorite is salted caramel, avocado and mocha.

Home made icecream. Salted caramel-Matcha Tea-Mocha; Avocado-Langka-Strawberry


Overall, I went home satisfied especially my tummy. If you are tired eating the same pizza flavor (we always order at mall or store), I highly recommend Steveston Pizza. Price-wise, it's a lot expensive than the other competitor but the quality, taste, appearance, and serving is worth every centavos. Visit them on one of their 3 branches.

Staycation At Canyon Woods Residential

It's been a long time since we had a family vacation so this really excites me. Actually, that day, I don't have any idea where are we going, basta sabi lang ng parents ko sa Tagaytay. My Tita and Tito are celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary. Sinabay na din ang celebration ng lahat ng August celebrants. I guess, ganon naman tayong mga Pinoy diba, pinagsasabay sabay na naten lahat ng occassion para makatipid.

May bagyo ng mga panahon na yan, pero di pa din kame nagpatinag na umalis. It was a 2 hour drive from Manila at medyo mahirap bumyahe dahil paakyat ng bundok etong Canyon Woods. But as you can see, it's worth it. Tanaw na tanaw namen ang Taal lake.

 We arrived there at noon and it's a good thing my mother cooked some lunch kasi malayo ang palengke from this place. Pinakamalapit na palengke ay sa may Sky Ranch. So my tips to all parents who are travelling with their family, make sure to pack meals in case na mastuck sa traffic or like us malayo ang market. Nakakagutom pati bumyahe.

Nakakamesmerize ang mga bahay sa Canyon Woods. They all have different structures and ang lawak ng residential club. Layo layo lahat ng bahay. You'll think na kayo kayo lang andun sa lugar na yun. Anyway, it's perfect for large numbers of family to play outdoor games. Pwede din siyang pang team building.

The house is really big for us. Kumpleto din sa gamit especially the kitchen utensils.

There are three rooms upstair, 4 beds, and I guess 8 foam mattress so kahit 50 person kayang iaccommodate ng house na ito. 2 bathrooms upstair and 1 bathroom downstair kaya for sure walang mag-aagawan sa pagligo or pag gamit ng banyo. There's also one room beside the kitchen. 

There's no aircon kasi di na kailangan. The temperature of the place is cool enough. Mapresko, malamig at masarap ang simoy ng hangin. This is what we all urban people miss. Life outside the busy and polluted city.

While waiting sa mga namalengke, me, husband and Prince stroll around the area. Napansin ko lang na madaming pataas at pababa sa lugar na to kaya medyo mahirap maglibot libot.

Some father and son bonding moments.

That time, medyo dumidilim na ang ulap and may mga konting patak ng ulan kaya bumalik na kami sa bahay.

And after a few hours, dinner is ready! Kahit ano pang nakahain sa lamesa sasarap basta sama sama kumaen ang pamilya. We really enjoyed this staycation, yun nga lang nagexpect ako na we will tour around Tagaytay. But due to bad weather, we stayed inside the house. I'm not sure how much we rent this house, kasi nalibre lang kame, but I heard it's P4,500 for 1 day and 1 night.

So that's it, I'll end this post with our #fambam photo. I hope you enjoyed your weekend like we did. Thanks for dropping by!
