Yes, it’s absolutely important so budget your suweldo properly, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a bit of fun. After all, you’re working to live, not living to work. Here are a few things you may want to try indulging in if you’re planning to spend your payday weekend kicking your feet up and chilling.
Sweets and coffee in a quiet nook within the city
How can anybody say no to Apple Strudel? Or maybe you’re more into something you haven’t tried before—like Sacher Cake coated in chocolate fondant? Don’t feel guilty about indulging because you definitely deserve it.
TRY: Sacher Cake at Café Pronto at the ground floor of the Marco Polo Ortigas. Order them fresh by calling (02) 720 7777 loc 6614.
A facial massage
Facial massages are great in lessening wrinkles on your forehead and around your mouth. They relax your muscles and stretch your skin—plus weekly sessions really get you in a better mood, too!
TRY: The Spa Aroma Facial Massage, from P825, available at The Spa branches
A good pair of sandals
When was the last time you bought something good and functional for your feet? After wearing heels and closed shoes the entire week, slip on a pair of comfortable but fashionable sandals that will let your toes and soles breathe.
TRY: Merrell Around Town Post Print sandals which can go well with culottes and palazzo pants; available in shoe boutiques and department stores
A plane ticket to a place you’ve never been to

A bottle of beer (or two)
There’s always something nice and relaxing about cold beer. No need to go out of the house to enjoy a chill night—just grab a few bottles from a convenience store and bring them home. Whether or not you toast with friends, remember that this is your pat-on-the-back after a long week at work. Just remember to always drink moderately!
TRY: San Mig Light, available in convenience stores, groceries, and select restaurants
