I‘ve been under a lot of stress for the past few weeks. And it’s not one of those self-made stress, mind you—but genuine, work-related stress. I don’t like worrying about things I really shouldn’t worry about, but work has a way of doing that to you—especially when you’re talking about deadlines.

Unfortunately, with my kind of work, it’s really important to have a level of relaxation—else, inspiration would be a pain. My husband and I have recently been to a spa village in Tagaytay (just last Sunday, to be more precise). I can honestly say that the relaxation and pampering did wonders for me—less stress, more work. Ideally, it would be best to take a break at least once a month, but driving all the way to Tagaytay from Antipolo on a regular basis is insane—not to mention an unnecessary waste of gasoline.

Blue Water Day Spa in Capitol Hills, Quezon City

Good thing I recently found out about a new branch of Blue Water Day Spa opening in Capitol Hills, Quezon City.

This Blue Water Day Spa branch is nestled within the sprawling fields of Captiol Hills Golf and Country Club, giving customers an excellent scenic view of the metro. A definite plus, in my opinion. Because for me, scenic views like the sprawling fields of the golf course, add to the feeling of rest and relaxation, which is one of the reasons why my husband and I make an effort to take the long journey to Tagaytay for spas.

I haven’t tried this branch of Blue Water Day Spa yet, but I think Marc and I will during one of our “relaxation” days. It’s not very often that you get to have a day of pampering at a spa and at the same time, have an excellent view to enjoy. I’d probably try the Traditional Filipino Massage a try — two hours of relaxation bliss — and bring my tripod to boot. No, I’m not going to use the tripod during therapy, but I have a feeling it’s going to come in handy when the sun sets — perfect for a photo shoot.
