French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
My girl is absolutely totally girlish, and I love that. I adore our dates,
because I don’t feel like I have to (always) force myself into toddlers’ activities. We recently discovered the Leisure SPA and Wellness of Cebu and felt in love with their “mini me” formula (from 5 y.o).
We had a foot massage that put the Little Princess into her most relaxing moods, a mani-pedi and last but definitely not least, a blow out. She was so proud of her straight hair that she slept with 2 pillows (and refused to shower) to make sure her hair would remain straight at least till the next day.
The staff is super welcoming and caring. It was our first time there and I can not recommend enough the foot massages. We felt so snug in their cushy armchairs that I knew that with a proper massage, Ms Attila would fall sleep pretty fast. It took her 5 mn. Bliss for her, bliss for me who could really relax for 30 minutes.
My mani was a disaster (maybe the OPI nail polish was too old?) but Ms Attila is still showing off with hers. We seem to have found a good way to stop her from biting her nails. The blow out was really a treat in this little cosy salon. We’ll definitely come back to test more …
Mini haircut: 150P – Mini blow dry: 120 – mini mani : 80 – Mini pedi : 120.
2. Mr Attila’s treat: jump and run in the wild (karaoke and cars free!)
No way Mr Attila would join at the SPA. He needs to run and shout and the loudest the best. Last week end,we discovered this lovely place up in the mountains of Busay, in Malubog. What a bliss! no karaoke, no car, not a single noise and eventually a place in Cebu where your lungs can do a decent inhale without coughing. You would need a car to reach it, jeepneys (un)fortunately don’t go that far up. But so worth it for a pique nique and a day off the crowd. Open your eyes and breath in:
3. Family treat: our fav resto in town
Cebu has its share of fancy restaurants. Most of them don’t last, most of them are not really kids friendly or the ones that are usually serve too much junk food for our tastes. So when we find one that is kids friendly and serves great food, we stick to it. Oddly enough, our favorite one in town is French ..
Tymad Bistro is open every day but Monday, and we adore everything that is on their menu, especially the salmon smoked by the Chef himself, the gorgeous salads and their onion soup comes straight from heaven. A meal that starts with fresh French baguette and salted butter can only be good. And it you are into delicious and totally decadent desserts, don’t look further. Their macarons are all made with natural ingredients, no preserve, no artificial flavour, no calorie (calories never count on week end). They even serve authentic espresso. What else?
Where will your kids take you this week end? Have a great one!
