Flawless Introduces Cell Booster Infusion Mask

It seems there's no stopping Flawless, the country's preferred clinic for face, body and medical services, from dominating the local beauty arena. Still hot from the successful launch of the country's first affordable stem cell-based product line, the brand now marks another milestone with the introduction of its most advanced facial treatment - Cell Booster Infusion Mask!

"We're really proud of this new facial as it is set to once again raise the bar for anti- and preventive-aging treatments in the country," starts Rubby Sy, CEO of Flawless. "In a nutshell, Cell Booster Infusion Mask is designated to perform two main functions: one, to combat the effects of and protect the skin from destructive free radicals that we encounter every day; two, to rejuvenate and improve our skins' cell architecture by nourishing it and encouraging the tissue regeneration process."

The science used for Cell Booster Infusion Mask allows it to deliver essential nutrients to the skin at cellular level. Using an advanced cellular repair hydrogel mask which contains highly concentrated essence of cell-activating nutrients, it promises to increase the skin's elasticity, minimize pores and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving the skin an undeniable glow. According to Sy, the technology for hydrogel is innovative in that it coagulates nutritious substances into a gel format and delivers active ingredients into the skin by reacting to the skin's temperature rather than the air. It also leaves the skin feeling cool, fresh and invigorated.

"We fell very lucky to have been able to bring this one-of-a-kind technology to the country," shares Sy. "Flawless is very proud of the fact that with this new treatment, the brand is once again able to fulfill its promise to consistently bring medically-sound beauty solutions closer to Filipinos without the Class-A prices."

Established in 2001, Flawless is the country's preferred clinic for face, body and medical services. It was founded on the premise of providing Filipinos easier access to top-notch, medically-sound beauty solutions. While cost has made the brand's offerings more accessible, the quality of Flawless' products and services remains first class. Powered by Skin Professionals, all of Flawless' doctors and staff regularly attend medical and dermatological conferences in and out of the country and receive constant up trainings. The brand is famed for employing equipment and technologies that are at par with those used by most international dermatological facilities.

Morning Lark or Night Owl?

If I were to choose between these two, I'd say I'm defo a Night Owl! I can stay awake all night, I just love the coolness of the night because it's so freakin hot in the morning, the blaring light of the sun is such a pain to my eyes! I know what you're thinking, you probably think I'm a freakin' vampire, but NO! I'm just not a morning person. Remember this, In the morning, I don't EXIST! But there are times when I really have to wake up in the early light of day because of school especially during high school when class was as Effin 7:30 in the morning! In my college years, my butt is still sound asleep during those times. I only choose classes that start at 9:30-10am as much as possible. 

I don't know how some people can manage to wake up in the wee hours of morning around 3am. I can't believe how these people can live like that, they must be programmed that way somehow.

I remember how I would usually have headaches and fatigue if I wake up too early. It's so annoying! Especially when I'm at home since we don't have aircon in our new house and the heat would just wake me up at around 7am as well as the super bright light! I HATE IT SO MUCH! I can't begin to describe how annoying this is! Mostly my father would also forcibly wake us up at around 8am to eat breakfast together while saying that it's not good to wake up late. What if I get banging headaches if I wake up early, does that do me any good???? NO!!!! It just gives me fatigue.. 

Why can't people just leave me at peace when I'm sleeping.. Good thing I'm living in a dorm now where I can wake up and sleep at my own accord. Usually when there's no class I'd wake up at around 10am then clean the room and take a short nap in the afternoon! Ha! Heaven.. No more people annoying me and hounding on me while I'm sleeping! You probably see this as why would someone make such a big deal over sleeping right? You see, Sleeping is my favorite past-time and how would you feel if you get sleep-deprived? I bet you'd feel grumpy as well..

You might think I'm lazy but I'm really not, why don't you ask my previous supervisors in the Hotel where I had my training before.. They clearly stated there that I'm hard-working and initiative.. It's just that I love to snooze off when times where I don't have to go to work or to school! I'm not lazy, I'm just madly in love with sleeping!

Eight-legged freaks!!

Can you believe what greeted me last night by the time I got inside my room?? One BIG and ugly spider!! It was a nightmare and I really did have a nightmare about it..

I tried killing it with a slipper because I can't bare the thought of sleeping with that intruder in the room. Good thing it was just in the restroom. Mostly we would get spiders or cockroaches in the room which I HATE so much! It's easier to get rid of cockroaches thought because I'd just have to turn the lights off and leave the outside light of the room turned on and it would just leave the room to follow the light. But it was different with spiders! They love the dark! The darker it is the better for them to hide under the things in the house! 

I was so scared and can't help but scream when I tried to smash it with the slipper because what if it would crawl to my arms and face!! ewww! it's just unimaginable! It was so creepy with its long black legs! disgusting piece of crap! 

I even had to use the other restroom just to brush my teeth and use the toilet! Can't believe that small yet ugly thing is making me use another restroom even thought I'm actually the one renting the room and that intruder is just scaring the shit out of me! So I decided to just close the door and sleep in case it would just go away. Much to my dismay, It still greeted me in the morning when I wake up. I decided that I couldn't live like this any longer so I bought a bottle of alcohol and got up in a chair in case in would run toward me. I don't care if I'd have to use up all the alcohol on it. I just want it DEAD! I sprayed the alcohol at the FREAK and it just ran all over the restroom hiding under the toilet but IT can't escape my wrath! I used up almost half of the bottle of alcohol and kept shouting "DIE you DIE you DIE!!"  then it was slowly dying. In finality, I sprayed some chlorine on it so that it would die for sure, after a few seconds it finally took its last breath! HA! that's what you get for intruding my room! Good riddance!

Paintball in Cebu

It was during Dwight's birthday and we were so excited to try playing paintball for the very first time. Their entrance fee was 20 Php and
300 php for 50 paintballs
200 for 33 paintballs and
100 for 17 paintballs

Since we were first timers and we just wanted to try for fun we started with 17 paintballs. Then we were briefed by one of their staff, then we were made to wear these camouflage outfits that make us looks like troopers and it was blazing hot inside because of the poor ventilation. Picture this, we were made to wear bullet proof vest, a jacket, a helmet, we felt like being entirely wrapped inside and I was sweating like crazy. I didn't expect that it would be like a furnace inside these suits. But it was fun since we had our own territories and we would protect our territory while finishing off the opponents at the same time. Looks like we're gonna need a strategy here, GENERAL. 

Heading for the shoot of the terminators... I kid..

Their setting was like that of an empty warehouse with vandals on the walls..

We really had fun playing and shooting at our opposing team, (For those who were hit: It's just a game, no hard feelings)

I got hit in my hand as well and it does kinda hurt, which caused my skin to get red and sore but it wore off immediately.

Mark, Daisy and Eason..

I'm really glad we had played paintball, I felt like a kid again running around and chasing after your enemies hhahahh and guess what? Our team won! Since we conquered their territory. hahahhah *evil scoff*

Swimming at Abellana Sports Complex

Yesterday we went swimming with Daisy at Abellana just to try out swimming there because the swimming pool is just so big and the inviting blue color is drawing us in.

In the most inopportune time, there were many swimmers practicing there when we decided to go for a swim after our summer class for the sake of exercising because of my scoliosis. When we got there dressed in our swimwear, we felt eyes on our back coming from those effin swimmers (can you just mind your own buisness?!) so annoying. Then there were like three people who kept on asking us where our swimming caps are. We were so annoyed because we just wanted to enjoy swimming and they kept bugging us. Hey, it's not like a swimming cap is necessary when you go swimming in other swimming pools, what would make this pool any different???!!! Those suckers! 

We didn't mind them though thinking they probably just want to mess around with some new faces, those *#%$tards! While we were swimming in the very warm waters (it's like a hot spring maybe because the people just urinated there or something!!) ewwww... There was this head swimmer who really went near us standing in front of me telling us the same thing all over again "we should rent swimming caps because blah blah blah!" I can't help but smile and deep inside I want to burst out laughing because while I was in the waters, he was outside the waters and standing in front of me sporting a body tight swimwear. I was there stopping myself from laughing because I was facing his balls since he was right on top of my face. HHAHHHAHHAHAH Like How am i suppose to take you seriously from this vantage point??!! He looked kinda hot though with the body of a swimmer but he was darkened by the sun. Still we decided to call it a day and we don't want to have anything to do with them just to avoid any fight. You know what, since you love your swimming pool so much why don't you just drink all the water so no stranger can swim in your territory. *%$holes!!! 

So we left.. Good riddance. Good thing we only paid 30 pesos for it.. we got 10 pesos discount since we had our school ID. 

I'm never gonna go back swimming there if I would still see their faces again, ever again!!!!
