Discovered a Gram-worthy Healthy Milk Tea Shop

Milk tea is so in trend right now. I don’t drink milk tea that much because I know it’s not as healthy as drinking coffee, but whenever I see a new stand or a shop that serves milk tea I get curios, especially if it is a place that also serves healthy drinks. Kind of like this new place I found out about. Although they serve milk tea too, theirs is a lot different.

Good Good PH is a milk tea brand that originated from Taiwan and in 2019, they started offering milk teas that are made with fresh cow’s milk here in the Philippines.

Besides milk tea, they are also serving fruit teas, hot teas, bubble milk tea, assorted teas with cream cheese, smoothies, and even juices.

Nowadays, when building a shop, you must take a lot of time in making it Instagram-worthy. Good Good PH really did a good job in their interior design.

I’m always fond of an interior that’s filled with mixed wood and metal materials. It’s simple and elegant-looking and it somehow gives a calm feeling.

Not only the materials chosen are lovely but the way they incorporated and positioned it together looks pleasing.

They even made a creative accent wall that is perfect for selfies, groufies and product shoots backgrounds.

This corner (image on the right) right here is the best place to pose with or without their product(s). It’s so cute.

You have a simple pink-ish background with their metal carved hashtag and an artistic white and black wall contrasting on the other side.

Oh! and look at that floating wood bar table and those cute wood and metal cocktail chairs.

Alright, I think I’ve said enough about the look of the shop but what about the things they serve, right?

Obviously I tried their drinks. I did a taste test of the drinks that were featured on my vlog (embedded below).

But I must say that Red Zen Tea is one of my favorites. It is a mix of dragonfruit and lychee.

It tastes unique and delicious, in my opinion. I know the fruit mix seems weird but it actually is a good mixture.

Dragon fruit is high in nutrients and fiber, but it is low in calories but packed with essential vitamins and minerals. It also contains a substantial amount of dietary fiber.

A Lychee on the other hand is is a rich source of nutrient that is required for the production of blood. It also contains good amount of antioxidant Vitamin C, Vitamin B-complex and more.

Is that enough info to make you grab your phone and order their healthy drinks? Nope? Okay well you might want to read another article that I wrote (click here) to know more about the drinks that they can offer. Maybe that blog can convince you to order. But here’s a copy of their menu.

updated as of April 4, 2020

I know it’s hard to go out since COVID-19 but don’t worry, you can order now via GrabAssistant, Foodpanda, Lalamove and LalaFood. Good Good PH Sct. Tobias branch is open from 11AM to 7PM, while their Banawe branch is from 11AM to 6PM.

A Cure for Women’s Abdominal Discomfort | Wellness Refill

Being a woman is not easy, especially when “that time of the day” comes, do you know what I mean?

Yes, the monthly period.

Many women experience abdominal discomfort we call dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual cramp that is caused by uterine contractions. It has two types, Primary which is the most common menstrual cramp that lasts up to 3 days, and the Secondary which is caused by a disorder in the woman’s reproductive organs that usually begins earlier in the menstrual cycle and lasts longer than common menstrual cramps.

Dysmenorrhea has been one of my struggles too every month and I experience it for 2 days in a month. 2 days in severe pain is no joke. All I do is lay down on my bed and do a warm compress on my lower abdominal area and sometimes on my lower back. It helps a lot but the pain comes back quickly.

I don’t drink medicine unless the pain is so severe that I cannot tolerate it anymore. I’ve experienced going to the hospital because of this abdominal pain and that’s a hassle and expensive. I don’t want that to happen anymore so I googled and asked around, then I came across a remedy. But before trying it I researched, read and asked about the product. I haven’t read or heard any negative thoughts about it. I was skeptic, as always, so I gave it a try.

I found Mint Relief on facebook and got very curious about it and told myself I have to try it. Well, what can I say other than it worked really well. It relieved my pain in less than 30 minutes. It gave me good comfort too. Dysmenorrhea went bye-bye in a snap.

I also used it when my hyper-acidity attacked, and it worked pretty good. The review I read about it was true, “★★★★★ … it’s AMAZING! It eases my tummy ache in just couple of minutes!” – Ampy, Wellness Refill customer.

Mint Relief‘s main ingredients are spearmint and peppermint. It’s a soft gel capsule that tastes a bit bland but that’s fine, some medicines and vitamins taste awful, am I right?

I suggest you try it too, but of course, don’t forget to consult your doctor first.


Mint Relief is claimed to be an all-natural solution for indigestion, gas, and hyper-acidity. It ingredients, peppermint and spearmint are known to provide quick relief from stomach issues like stomach aches, flatulence, and indigestion.

Mint Relief is sold for Php 150 excluding the shipping fee. Each pack contains 10 round soft gel capsules.

Redefining the standard of beauty with the latest skin laser technology

To look well, you have to be well.

That is the beauty standard set by Luminisce, skin care and laser institute that provides premium skin, body, and fitness solutions tailor-fit to every individual’s specific needs. Located in the heart of the city, visit at your convenience and immediately bask in the comfort of a luxurious environment while expecting careful and meticulous skin analyses, state-of the art technology, and individually-crafted services that provide expert treatment and improvement of your skin, body, and overall well-being.

In the age of social media, beauty may seem only skin deep. But in reality, it is not. More than taking a perfect selfie, it is creating that great first impression, having self-confidence, and feeling good that makes one truly beautiful. And sometimes, it is those scars, acne marks, rosacea, and dark spots that weigh one down. In fact, these are the main reasons for having a skin care consultation in a clinic. At last, the solution has been found to solve all of these common skin care problems, and more.

The first use of lasers in medicine was in 1962 to remove tattoos. Half a decade later, laser technology has improved drastically, expanding its use in the medical and cosmetic field to treat a myriad of skin problems. PICOPLUS™ is the latest in skin laser technology that introduces a faster, better, and safer way to remove scars, tattoos, acne marks, and even melasma. It sets itself apart from traditional lasers as it can deliver energy in a fraction of a second! This speed allows fewer treatments with less downtime. And now, world-class boutique dermatology clinic Luminisce brings the country’s first ever PICOPLUS™ platform in the country.

AUG 1, THU.jpg

PICOPLUS™ is a versatile, non-invasive, and US FDA-approved laser that can treat various skin pigmentation problems such as melasma, pigmentation and pigmented lesions, tattoos, acne and acne scars, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and other difficult skin cases that do not respond to similar technologies. It is the most advanced Nd:YAG laser to date. Nd:YAG stands for Neodymium: yttrium-alumunium-garnet, and is a crystal used as a laser medium. The Nd:YAG laser is non-ablative, which means that it can heat tissue without destroying it. It can treat a wide range of skin problems such as spider veins, age spots, freckles, dark spots, and more. Compared to the current Q-switched Nd:YAG nanosecond pulse lasers that have been used for decades, the PICOPLUS™ works in high power, quick, and short 450 picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses, as longer pulse durations mean a higher risk of damaging the surrounding tissue and less efficacy in treatment. With short pulses in high energy, the pigment is destroyed into smaller pieces, making elimination faster, producing more visible results in every treatment, and allows for shorter sessions overall. While current lasers deliver results as well, it is still limiting in terms of color density, side effects, lack of power, and pain tolerance for the patient.

LUMINISCE PICOPLUS LASER

With the efficacy and precision of the picosecond laser, PICOPLUS™ still stands out from the rest as it produces the highest energy (1.8GW) compared to other picosecond lasers. Moreover, it has mastered Asian skin like never before, when previous models only allowed treatment for lighter skin types. Its versatility, offering 4 wavelengths, means that it can achieve far better results as each treatment may be customized depending on the patient’s skin condition. Its effectivity, precision, and reliability make it an exceptional treatment option that meets patient expectations with guaranteed results.

_DSC4048.jpg

Luminisce is the first dermatology clinic to bring PICOPLUS™ in the country. Its premium services not only addresses skin care needs, but the patient’s overall health across skin care, physical fitness, and psychosocial well-being. The clinic’s physician, Dr. Kaycee Cuevas Reyes-Bacani, has practiced dermatology in several areas both locally and internationally. She is one of the few in the country to have recently completed a Master of Science in Preventive Medicine at International University in Dresden, Germany that specializes in preventive and regenerative medicine.
