Love Your Hair With Novuhair

The love month doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give to your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. The love month should remind us about everything and everyone we love.Love your Hair

Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well.

Take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it. Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.

  •  Observe good hygiene all the time – regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes
  • Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair – your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.
  • Use towel to dry off your hair after shower – Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.
  • Eat the proper nutrition– Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.
  • Have enough sleep – Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.
  • Pamper your hair – Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs.

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is made of 19 Natural ingredients which includes herbal components such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.

“Gupit Binata” No More! Because Men Deserves Better!

294905_3704380661410_443389973_nrWhen women are stressed, they have their own ways to pamper themselves. They will either go for a shopping or visit the salon for a makeover. I actually came across an article before saying that almost 70% of women used professional care services while only 40% of men will avail such. I guess maybe some men do not pay much attention to their looks or maybe they don’t find it so necessary. Well, just because the average number of women who visit Salon are bigger than the number of men doesn’t mean men do not deserve such special treatment.

Unearthed this School ID showing me sporting my “Gupit Binata” haircut A Typical Conversation between me and the barber
Barber: Anu pong gupit?
Me: Kuya Gupit Binata po, yung maikli, yung pwede kong maSpike haha

Interestingly millennial men are now more aware of themselves and how properly they should be treated and be groomed. Most men today are more concerned now about their appearance and how they look. They are easily influenced by the latest fashion and trends. I remember when I was a kid, my father will just drop us to the nearest Barber shop and we mostly settled with that “Gupit Binata” looks but now, men have so many options. There goes the man-buns, the pampadour hairstyles, the spiky modern undercuts and more!

Me sporting different hairstyles recently

With pompadours on the rise, man-buns making its way on the street, perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance…it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.  The increasing popularity of these kinds of male grooming and treatments gave way to a new breed of barbershops , one that delivers the kind of service that they expect that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic.  So yeah, “Gupit Binata” is no longer the only option for men nowadays because we now have those male-focused salons to help us men to get the kind of male grooming treatment that we all deserve!

Sports Barbershop

And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers.

With 12 branches nationwide, it recently unveiled another milestone as it opened its 12th branch in SM North Edsa last December 2016. This place recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighborhood barbershop and offers a destination.16780332_120300002149678124_1903426147_n

Its ambiance and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humor and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper as they can be.

It’s Gupit Binata no more indeed. With the modern environment we are living today, it is just the right time to embrace the modern changes. It’s just so nice that we finally have that Go-to destination whenever we need a proper haircut. What I personally love about this male-focused salon or barbershop is that they got the right people who are knowledgeable enough to provide you the proper treatment for your hair. They surely know which hairstyle will suit you best.

This made me so eager to visit Sports Barbershop real soon. Fortunately, they got a branch in SM Southmall which is just one ride away from my place!

Other branches can be found at UP Town Center, SM Clark, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Mall of Asia, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod, Eastwood Citywalk, SM San Pablo, SM San Lazaro and SM North Edsa

[Food] Cabalen Opens Another Branch in SM Mall Of Asia

Cabalen recently opened another branch in SM Mall of Asia and this time it is located at the 2nd Floor of Southwing Bayview Area. Cabalen restaurant has always been very close to my heart. I still remember those times when my mom will take me and my siblings here and we used to take advantage of their Eat all you can buffet by filling our plates with almost every piece of their menu.
20170208_113539t
For three decades, Cabalen never failed to deliver the best dishes while remaining faithful in providing nothing but high quality menu for every Filipino since 1974. Tracing back the restaurant’s humble origin, they started as a simple Bahay Pasalubong Restaurant in Pampanga (Cabaelen actually means “Fellow Kapampangan). From there, the store grew up and eventually became an Eat All You Can buffet restaurant that we all grew up loving with.
20170208_113253t
Cabalen expanded and opened many branches all over the country catering a wide range of the best and authentic Kapampangan dishes and many other popular Pinoy specialties. Some of their branches including the one in SM Megamall, Robinsons Place Manila and the ones in SM Mall of Asia (including the Southwing Bayview Area) covers Asian Cuisine dishes. The Grand Opening of the newest branch in SM Mall of Asia just kicked off last Wednesday (February 8, 2017) and I’m so grateful to be invited to cover the said event.
20170208_104049t
The Ambiance
Cabalen has remained faithful to their concept. They provide an interesting rustic atmosphere. The wooden tables and chairs are interesting enough to make you feel like visiting the province and eating in native carinderia. To compliment with such interesting theme, some Cabalen branches also play Folk songs in the background which gives you that exciting feeling when attending those traditional Fiesta in the province.
20170208_110030t
The Food
One thing I love about Cabalen is that despite of the fact that you are dining in a mall, the food will somehow make you feel that you were eating at home since their menu are those typical Filipino specialties that we all grew up loving with. This is probably one great reasons why most Balikbayans are patronizing the restaurant. I also think that if you have Foreign friends who want to taste the Filipino cuisine, Cabalen would be a perfect place for them to taste those iconic Pinoy dishes without the need of traveling one province to another. Cabalen offers a wide selection of viands, appetizers, salads, soups and desserts!20170208_104125tLumpiang Hubad20170208_104217tTokwa’t Baboy20170208_104234tCrispy Crablets20170208_104320tCrispy Kangkong20170208_104517tKare-Kare (One of their best-sellers)20170208_104541tAdobong Manok20170208_104630tGatang Kuhol20170208_104706tPakbet Kapampangan20170208_104757tBeringhe20170208_104829tPancit Puti20170208_104955tBangus Inasal20170208_105033tPork Sisig20170208_105050tAtsarang Singkamas20170208_105101tAtsarang Gule20170208_105107tAtsarang Papaya20170208_105121tPampanga’s Tocino20170208_113135tLonganisa20170208_113111tLechon20170208_105159tCatfish with Mango Salad20170208_105221tFried Chicken With Lemon20170208_105258t20170208_105307tWide variety of Sushi20170208_105337tHalo-halo ingredients (Self-service)20170208_105345tTibok-tibok20170208_105354tMaja Kalabasa20170208_105419tFresh Fruits20170208_105439tSampelot20170208_105451tMintamis Na Saging20170208_105552tSoup (Bulalo With Mais)20170208_110001t
The Service
We were all welcomed by their friendly crews. They are very approachable and accommodating. One of their crews never stopped approaching me to refill my glass with Iced Tea and I do not even need to look for one just to have another glass. I also approached them to wave in my video and they do it cheerfully without any hesitation and I really appreciate that (watch the video below)20170208_110111tOne thing I learned about an Eat all You Can buffet is that it is more ideal to take only the portion that you can consume. Some people , for practical reason, used to take advantage of the Eat all you can privilege by taking almost everything on the menu and filling their plate full but often ends up wasting a large portion of them. Interestingly, wasting food is a Big No for Cabalen that’s why they came up with so-called “Clean Plate Policy” which encourages people to consume everything on their plate and leaving no trace because for every 100g of leftovers, the customer must pay an additional Php100 charge.

“Malaus Ko Pu!” (Kapampangan term for Kain Na! – Let’s eat!)

For Cabalen SM Mall of Asia Branch that caters both Filipino and Asian Cuisine, the regular buffet starts at Php398 which is absolutely reasonable!

[Movie Review] Resident Evil : The Final Chapter (SPOILERS ALERT)

resident-evil1280jpg-38784d_1280wResident Evil film franchise finally concluded with Resident Evil : Final Chapter. If you have been following the series, you should know that the film is not connected by any means to any of the original gaming franchises. Although it is loosely based on the video game, the movie follows a different plot. The films follow protagonist Alice, an original character created for the films portrayed by Milla Jovovich. Alice, who was once a security operative working for Umbrella, becomes an enemy of the corporation.

Resident Evil : The Final Chapter took place three weeks after the event of the last film and if you all guys remember, the previous film concluded in a seemingly inescapable scenario where the Alice and the rest were surrounded by an overwhelming and seemingly interminable horde of zombies. The Final chapter will prove us how this catastrophic event will end.  Is the plot good enough to give justice? Will it be a satisfying ending? Take note, the following paragraphs contain SPOILERS!!
