Belle de Jour Veterans’ Night

I’ll be going to the Belle de Jour Veterans’ Night on Thursday!


This is their way of thanking people like who have been in the Bella community for a while. It will be an intimate night full of surprises,¬†fun, food, and dancing. The fat cat and dancing… hmm… Hahaha I’m fine with the surprises, fun and food though.

It’s a night to mingle with BDJ Veterans, beauty and lifestyle bloggers, BDJ hosts Tracy Abad, Karen Bordador, Janeena Chan, and Apple David, the BDJ Box Beauty Ministry, and of course, the whole BDJ team ūüôā

“Since the theme of the 2016 BDJ planner is¬†Share The Spark,¬†we envision our BDJ Veterans to be the girls who will help our team spread our advocacy¬†to help other bellas find their inner light and believe that they have the power to rekindle it.”

Gotta go and look for a cocktail dress now. See you there!!!

My mom and I were able to use my Belle De Jour coupons and enjoyed it a lot too!

For the past year and a half, since discovering that ACE Water Spa is a cool and VERY fun way to relax, unwind and bond with family and friends, I’ve highly appreciated the Buy 1 Take 1 4 Hour hydrotherapy coupon that we get from the journal. And it is just recently that we’ve discovered¬†ACE Coffee Lounge. So having the¬†Php 500.00 Lunch Buffet coupon is a treat!

They have different food stations and one of my favorites is the pasta station. This is where you can pick the ingredients and the chef will cook it for you. You just ave to say what the sauce will be, And since I love garlic, I chose Angelhair Aglio Olio with capers, shrimp and bacon. To say that it is devine is simply an understatement.

They also had a station for steaks and sushi. Their steak is good but their sushi selection can be better. Their veggies are cooked the right way and you can taste their freshness. *Sigh* Just writing this post makes me want to go there ASAP to reacquaint myself with their food. Hahaha

Steak, seafoods, chow mien, steamed veggies and a whole lot of fruits! #PerksOfABella

Here’s a pic of my gorgeous mom and I. At the bottom right corner of the pic is the shabu-shabu I had made. It is beside the grilling station and you get to chose your own ingredients. Knowing how to cook is a big thing when making these things and it’s just awesome!

All in all I’m really sorry since I wasn’t able to take more pics. But seeing this place just got me so excited. So hopefully I’d show you the food stations next time. >.< The selections aren’t as extensive as Viking’s or Yakimix but their food is very yummy and the quality is great! Definitely recommend this and would go back there again!
