A luxurious afternoon spent at Lulu Nails & Dry Bar

One of the little luxuries I love spoiling myself with is spending time at a spa — whether to have massage treatments or beauty treatments like foot spa with manicure and pedicure. This was exactly my agenda when I headed to Lulu Nails & Dry Bar.

imageOne thing I consider the most in spas is space. Huge space. Here, you won’t have any problems hearing other clients’ noise (e.g. while they’re on the phone, etc.). In fact, in both instances that I’ve had my pampering here, I had the whole spa all to myself! That’s because I chose to go here around 2 to 3 in the afternoon, which is such a perfect time to have a relaxing time.

imageTrivia: I gave myself a nickname before — I am Lulu. In fact, my first blog prior Dollhouse Diary was called Lulu and Teacups. Lulu is synonymous to beauty, sweetheart and dream amongst others. And this gave an even more meaningful reason why I hold this nails and dry bar close to my heart.

imageBathrobes and LaZboy? Yes, please! I was wearing jeans and it can’t be rolled up to my knees. The nice staff offered me to use their bathrobe so I can have utmost comfort throughout the whole duration of my pampering session.

Krazy Garlik goes to Greenhills

Krazy Garlik Greenhills

Go on a garlicky adventure while tasting the different recipes from around the clove with Krazy Garlik’s newest branch at Promenade’s New Wing in Greenhills. Adding to the garlicky goodness of its roster of four restaurants, Krazy Garlik is now ready to feed the hungry foodies of the north. With flavors that will excite even non-believers, you shouldn’t miss out on this dining destination that glorifies the beautiful taste of garlic.

First time I’ve tried Krazy Garlik was with my girl friends at their Greenbelt 5 branch. Imagine the excitement of us, people from the North, to find out they opened a new branch in Greenhills. Now it’s closer to home and easier to visit when we crave for anything garlic-ky.

Interiors and Facade

Krazy Garlik Greenhills

For this garlicky adventure, we’ve tried nothing but their best sellers.


Spinach and Cream{ Spinach and Cream Php260. Deep-fried wanton wrapper stuffed with spinach and cream cheese. Served with salsa and kimchi }


Amazing KG Salad{ Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad Php325. A refreshing Asian salad mix. Cucumber, bell peppers, onions and oriental chicken strips tossed in sesame lime dressing. Topped with fried wanton and peanut sauce }

1st favorite! I am loving pretty much any dish with cucumber, so much so if it is a refreshing salad like this. The onion did not pose a strongly awkward flavor, which I like. The tenderness of the chicken strips add texture and compliments the taste.


Stuffed Pechay{ Stuffed Pechay Php295. Pechay leaves stuffed with ground pork and smoked fish simmered in our coco chili cream sauce }

2nd favorite! Don’t you just love dishes that are stuffed?! Veggies and pork together sounds good to me.
