Unwind (GT 12-16-10)

I've been too busy lately that I'm not able to attend to my blogs...I've checked out BeautyQueenGene's blog to see what's this week's topic is, gladly, I'll be sharing my piece because I really need one today.

Here in Manila where's time is so fast especially now that it's Christmas season and people are awake almost 24/7, we definitely need to de-stress once in a while.

Where do we go to unwind? There are a few places where me, my hubby and the whole family goes to just relax and spend a good time with each other and the kids as well. We normally go to UP Diliman to jog around the Acad Oval, our "cheap" version of de-stressing. Just armed with our running apparel, off we go. Even little Leon join in once in a while. Aside from doing our regular run at UP Diliman, it's also a nice place to just sit around, watch over the kids or read a book under the canopy of acacia trees. This is one of the few places in Manila with air pollution.

Another option for relaxation with my husband, also our bonding moment, is going to a spa. Pampering ourselves with an hour or so full body massage. M likes the Thai technique of massage while I like the Swedish-Shiatsu type. But since we opt for different types of massages, we normally alternate each type to give each one a chance of our choice. It's either at Ton Ton's Massage or at the Family Spa.

Once in a while, we go out of town to get away from the busy Manila - it's usually Tagaytay or Subic. Although driving a long distance is quite stressful but for my husband M who loves driving, he's already de-stressing himself doing it.

how about you, how do you relax?
