Baja Mexican Cantina

The Baja Mexican Cantina located at Greenbelt 3 has a very pleasant environment. It is a lovely place to take out-of-town guests or the family for a hearty lunch or dinner.
Baja was concptualized by a group of friends who love good food, of which Art Mendoza belong to. Art goes loco over Mexican food and his search for that authentic Mexican food in Manila has been futile. So he got his friends to set up a Mexican Restaurant.

Baja Mexican Cantina is a casual restaurant that serves authentic, comfort Mexican food plus the best mixes of Margaritas and Mojitos.
Big Burrito - to share with friends with big appetite

You can get a taco or a burrito from Baja Mexican Cantina, but you can get real meals with meat or seafood as well! The Burrito Grande is certainly is superb and very good! It consists of more than the traditional Mexican fare. They make their own dips here and they are delicious indeed!

Dorm Boys Movie Review

Dorm Boys tackles lives of five individuals in a college life drama. The movie offers so little as it doesn't go deep enough each interesting element. It is lacking in drama despite the fact that college life of students are considered fertile ground for stories.

It stars Renz Michael, Carlo Lazarna, Arvic Rivero, Ryan Kevin and Aaron Villaflor. Pamela Sue, Nadine Lustre, Mayton and Tia Pusit assumed supporting roles. And it is directed by Armand Reyes.

TONTON (Arron Villaflor)– A good-looking 19-year old boy in pursuit of his biological father’s (Bobby Yan) affection and seeks to be recognized by his father, who has another family. He is living all alone since his mother is already in the USA with her common-law American husband.

Though his father attends to Tonton’s schooling needs, he does so with a heavy heart.

RICHARD (Michael Renz)– A well-off spoiled brat,  who would rather be with  his dormmates. He often treats them generously to drinking sprees and pigging out. He is romantically involved with his liberated young professor (Pamela Sue).  

HECTOR (Carlo Lazerna)– A small-town boy who is pressured by his poor parents to finish a course which is not to his liking and mental capacity. His gay professor (Greg Calasito) offers a passing grade in exchange for sex.  The boy agrees to his professor's indecent proposal but backs out on the last minute. To his credit, he learns to follow his heart in handling such tests.

RUBEN (Ryan Kevin) – A street-wise, financially and academically-challenged loser who survives through guts, naivete and purity of his heart. An odd damsel (Nadine Lustre) comes to his life and somehow serves as an inspiration for him to give up some of his felonious habits and make the best out his limited personal resources.

IGGIE (Arvic Rivero) – The group’s mascot talks about getting a better life in the US, but he struggles with both his studies and his relationships.  He  loses his love (Mayton) to a best friend, Tonton.

The five main character find strength in each other’s friendship throughout their trial. The film is based from Cesar E. Buendia’s “Morayta Corner CM Recto (University Belt/Dormitoryo2)”.

The film's sound problems on top of its post production issues and low-budget status makes Dorm Boys a substandard movie.  It seems that the actors and talents were only using the built-in microphones on camera. There were several scenes in which theater audience had to struggle making out the dialogues. Many filmmakers were able to do a lot more in their films with even less budget allocation.

Media Launch of Chakra Massage at Blue Water Day Spa

Last November 6, we were invited to the Aroma Chakra Healing Body massage and Indian Head massage launch at the Blue Water Day Spa last November 6. Respected international teacher and trainor, Ms. Ranjeet Kour, was flown into Manila to discuss and demonstrate how each of these massage therapies works on the body.

The Indian Head, Neck and Shoulder Massage is focused on the first four chakras of the body to release tension on the head, neck and shoulders. It is designed to relieve tension of head, neck and shoulder based on the first four chakras of the body.
Aroma Chakra Healing Body Massage is focused on the major seven chakras of the body which correlate to the location of the seven major endocrine glands. It focuses on the seven major Chakra of the body using aroma synergy and laying of seven crystals chakra stones to balance major chakras of the body.
Chakra are believed to be centers of the body from which a person can collect energy. They are connected to major organs or glands that govern other body parts. It is the moulding of the physical energy present in every cell of the body and the spiritual energy. Its name comes from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "turning".
The Chakra healing therapy uses crystals. The body has a powerful but yet not fully understood method of self-healing and using crystals to tap into the body's healing powers you already possess helps a lot. Chakra massage brings balance of the chakras in our bodies and energies as it promotes good sleep and relied from strenss. It also promotes positive feelings.

These revolutionary treatments available to Blue Water Day patrons include the Colonic Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Infant Massage, Indian Head Massage and the Chakra Massage. Pamper your self in any of the 5 Blue Water Day Spa branches in Metro Manila--Greenhills, Makati City, Capitol Hills, Tomas Morato and in Eastwood City.
