Indulge in a fancy high tea ceremony with your kumares
Very few things in life are more soothing than catching up with old friends over a few choice pastries and an excellent cup of tea. You can have all three when you indulge in a very fancy high tea ceremony with your best friends! There are so many different places to choose from, so you’re not only spoiled for experience, you’re spoiled for choice as well!
Catch a show with the girlfriends or hubby
One of the best things about Manila is you’ll never run out of shows to watch! There are always live theatre events around the city that are sure to be an experience, and this theatrical season is no exception. You can catch Tony and Olivier award winning The Phantom of the Opera this March and April. If you can’t make it to Phantom, don’t worry! Atlantis Theatrical will be staging their very own locally produced version of Beautiful, a musical based on the life and music of the legendary Carole King! Make it a fun night out on the town with friends or a date night with your other half!
Stay in and watch your favorite shows or movies
Although going out and getting your kikay on may be a great idea, sometimes, it just doesn’t hit the spot. An alternative to going out and spending your well earned money is just staying home, having a nice glass of wine or indulging in your favorite snack, and queueing up your favorite shows or movies may be the perfect way to relax! Just remember, scheduling is everything! Ask hubby to take the kids out for dinner and dessert so you can enjoy your me-time.
Stay home, kick back and relax with your family
All of the aforementioned ways to relax and recharge are great ideas, but the best way to make sure your battery is in check is spending time with the people who matter to you the most – your family. Family time is the best way to mend your tired spirit and brighten even the cloudiest day!
