Tomorrow is the day! It’s National Pampering Day!

The long wait will finally be over tomorrow as Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa welcomes you once again tomorrow, October 17, 2017, for another real pampering treat at the celebration of the National Pampering Day.

Relieve your stress and make sure to drop by at any Nailaholics branch nearest you from 10 AM to 1 PM to get a free pampering service of your choice. You may choose to get a soothing manicure, relaxing foot massage or a calming foot spa.

And best of all, by simply participating in this year’s National Pampering Day, you will be able to support the cause of your chosen organization. You can extend your help in the rehabilitation of Marawi City by supporting World Vision, help protect our country’s rich but threatened marine and coastal resources when you support Save Philippine Seas or support The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in preventing animal cruelty.

“With all the preparations we’ve made, we are very excited to welcome everyone tomorrow and make them feel that they deserve real pampering” said Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

This is a once a year treat only from the number one pampering destination in the Philippines – Nailaholics. See you all tomorrow and Happy National Pampering Day!

What’s in SM CDO Downtown Premier? Is it Flood Free?


SM CDO Downtown Premier is SM Prime Holding’s 61st mall, the sixth in Mindanao, and the second in Cagayan de Oro. It is a 5-level, 177,743.21 square meter mall located at the busy intersection of Claro M. Recto Avenue and Osmena Streets. There is also a prime office space of eight floors in the future BPO tower.

Worried about flooding? SM CDO Downtown Premier is said to be equipped with Rainwater Catchment System – it’s a basin underneath the Main Mall Building measuring 3,000 square meters and six meters deep. It can hold up to 13, 650 cubic meters of water or close to 13.7 million liters of water.  The tank capacity was based on the 24- hour rainfall intensity of 455 mm brought by Typhoon Ondoy in 2009. With that worry off your list – let’s get back in SM. 😛

SM CDO Downtown Premier brings an uptown vibe to the downtown area. The five floors includes The SM Store and SM Supermarket which are its major retail anchors, as well as the SM mainstays like SM Appliance, Toy Kingdom, Our Home, Surplus, Sports Central and Pet Express.  The mall will also have hundreds of stores – fashion boutiques, shoe stores, home stores, novelty stores, and more, including a Cyberzone for the tech generation, and a Wellness Center.

Global brands are also there like Forever 21 (now open), Uniqlo (opens on June 30!), Miniso, The Body Shop, Watsons, Ace Hardware, Crocs, Giordano, The Face Shop, and Oakley, as well as well-loved Filipino brands like National Bookstore, Bench, and Penshoppe.

For foodies, outdoor dining will enliven the street with restaurant balconies available on both sides. SM CDO Downtown Premier also has a Food Hall with wide variety of food choices and eating out options ranging from local and international fast food chains to specialty restaurants. Foodies will surely love trying out the mall’s homegrown restaurants which I’ve personally tried and would recommend – Missy Bonbon, Bigby’s, Damaso, Hanabel’s, and Hungry Plate. For desserts or just a quick healthy munch or gulp – I would recommend Fruitfull. I have still yet to explore these homegrown restaurants: Ribs and Bibs, Chez Marie, Salo Salo sa Panagatan, Barkadahan Grill, Bingsoo, Naicha, Sweet Cravings and Arturos. Here’s a video of the Food Hall a day before the opening:
