There are days when you just don’t feel like going to work, and it’s okay. Everyone deserves a break once in a while. For those times when you feel like playing hooky, here are a few things you can do to indulge yourself and make you feel like the donya that you are.


1. Go all out on your spa day.

And when we say all out, we mean to book an appointment at a posh day spa with all the amenities that will get to totally relax. Get the works: sauna, an hour-and-a-half massage, and healthy fruits and drinks to boot after your session. It’s your day, so just enjoy!

TRY: CHI Balance Massage at CHI Spa, EDSA Shangri-La Hotel. Enjoy 90 minutes of calming long strokes interspersed with gentle palm pressure massage that will help relax your tired muscles. (P4,800 for single; P9,600 for double).


2. Have your tips done.

Are your nails all chipped from working too hard? Pamper your tips and toes with an indulgent gel mani-pedi combo. Gel manicures last chip-free longer (three weeks at least!), and their glossy finish is just tops!

TRY: Kallista Nail Pamper Lounge at S Maison, Conrad Manila. Choose from an array of Grecian-inspired services and try out their latest Beauty and The Beast polishes from Morgan Taylor Beauty and Gellish!


3. Fill your tummy and nourish your skin.

When it comes to food, multi-tasking is a definite yes!

TRY: Bijin Nabe Collagen Hot Pot at Bijin Nabe S Maison, Conrad Manila, which features Golden Collagen Stock from the Jidori Chicken of the Miyazaki Prefecture.


4. Or maybe just enjoy an entire buffet!

Who says you can’t go to a buffet restaurant solo? Eating alone can be very gratifying. Just remember not to hog the carving station!


TRY: Cucina at Marco Polo Ortigas is offering Tasty Indulgence, which features three new signature dishes!


5. Then again, staying home isn’t such a bad idea, too...

…Especially if it means putting your feet up and doing Netflix and chill with a nice cup of coffee and your favorite pastries. Sulit na!

TRY: Gigi Gaerlan’s Custaroons for a coconut-and-custard-filled day (Box of 15 starts at P 280).
