Ace Water Spa Atbp!

Cameras are not allowed! Seriously?!

Well, that probably is the only major setback in Ace Water Spa. That made us all sad. We're all cam addicts, you know, lol!

Habang ang daming dumadaang sasakyan, hehe!

But with Ace Water Spa's facilities and service? There's nothing negative that I can say.

Me, Zaicy and Lori arrived at around 3pm and went directly to the reception area. We are not paying the full price of PhP550 (PhP250 for kids) because we are using discounted vouchers from CashCashPinoy. There was a special queue for voucher holders and we were accommodated readily! Prompt service, yeah! You will then be provided with your locker keys.

We went to the locker rooms. They would ask you to deposit your shoes upon entry. They have slippers there that you can use so there's no need to bring your own! You will also be given shower caps that you are required to use.

Important Rules: Only swimwears are allowed, no cover-ups, no undies! No mobile phones and again no cameras! No food/beverages! So you would basically have to leave the locker room only with yourself, your swimsuit and your locker key strapped around your wrists! That's it!

Okay, so then we went to the Spa! I was wearing string bikinis, and it was a huge mistake! I suggest you wear something that fits snugly to your body. Go for boylegs and wide-strapped tops! Why? Because the water pressure in some pools is so high and it almost took my swimsuits off, lol!

I don't know how many "hydrotherapy massage" pools they have but the one that I most enjoyed is the Rainfall Acupuncture! It is like lying on a bed in your rooftop while it is raining! Yes, it is relaxing and a bit tickling. I also liked the Lazy Pool where you will ride on a floating board while the water current carries you around.

The other massages are too hard for my body that I can't even stand it even for 1min (they suggest you stay for 3-5mins), it felt like someone is punching me. That's maybe because I'm too small and skinny, and I have low tolerance for pain.

They also have those hot herbal pools! It's like dipping your body in a teapot! But I cannot stand the Sauna nor the Steam Bath, it will kill me with dehydration! But they do have purified water dispensers available, in case you feel the need to rehydrate. Or if you want to tease your friend by pouring cold water to her right after dipping in the hot pool just like what me and Zaicy did to Lori, lol! But FYI, it is actually recommended that you dip yourself in the freezing cold pool after the hot bath, they say it is to keep you heart rate normal. So Lori, we did you a favor! :)

You can stay at the spa for a max of 4hrs! We got tired after about 2 hrs, we had our last round of the Rainfall Acupuncture and Hot Pool, and decided to go. The shower area has shampoo and body wash available! I still suggest you bring hair conditioner though, you know how much pool water makes your hair dry. They have hair dryers and hair gels available for use too! Very convenient, right?

There's Zaicy and Lori! And "hon" at the back, hehe!
Me in my blue dress and shoes! Terno dapat sabi ni Zaicy!
So after the mini pictorial session, we then walked from the hotel to Shangri La Mall. We were looking for Power Planet Sports to check out Arena's rash guard that we will be using for our La Union Surfing Trip week after next.

Since we were already starving, we left Shangri La and went to Mesa in Mega Atrium! They serve mainly Filipino dishes. We ordered Chicken and Pork Adobo, Laing 2 ways, and the Sea Food Bean Curd Soup! The Laing is superb, like!

Tastes more like Chicken and Pork Mechado, hihi!
confused na soup
yummy laing

Look at Zaicy and Lori, they look good together, eh? Too bad, Lori's married and Zaicy's gay, lol!


And there I was, alone at the other side of the table singing..

 ♪ I was not so happy being lonely
Living without you...


And then came along Empi, and the song continues .. 

You and I
We were meant to be
Sweet as rain falling from the sky

These are all the many changes in my life..

The Mark and JRo Love Team by Lili, haha!
I'm just kidding everyone! Me and Empi are just friends (showbiz?!lol!). Anyways, I don't know why but I've had LSS with that song since this morning, haha!

Back to the original story.. After eating in Mesa, we then went to Chewy Jr. to claim my 2 boxes of mini cream puffs that I bought from Ensogo! We ate a box of cream puffs for dessert, yummy! 


Surprisingly, I was not satisfied with that and I wanted to eat more.. Icecream in DQ!! I had too much dose of sugar last night, haha! And though, I tried hard not to buy new shoes, I still did! Thanks to my uber kunsintidor friends, hmp!

It's already past 9pm and we had to go home! Til our next lakwatsa guys, which will be next Friday, right? :)
