Last February 28-29, 2012, RN HEALS Batch III for Region 3 orientation (1st batch to deploy: Pampanga and Zambales) was held at King’s Royal Promenade Event Hall, Bacolor Pampanga. Luckily, Im part of it. The orientation includes the room accommodation and foods. But since I’m from Pampanga, and its just 45 minutes away from home, I chose to go home, and besides I wasn’t informed that we can stay for free. Loser but really I’m not interested to stay.
I was assigned to our municipality together with 4 girls, namely (L-R): Ate Rhea, Riza, Marlene - she’s my high school batchmate, and Mj (not in the picture above). I felt a bit oldie with this batch, like most of them ata are newly RN, but I guess no.
The 1st day of the orientation was whole day. We filled up and submitted all the requirements needed step by step and together, and signed the contract. The contract, stipend and benefits were explained. Benefits are good - the gov’t will pay for our GSIS and Philhealth + stipend + certificate. There’s a possibility of getting absorb. I like the consistency of the schedule. Its from Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. Cons are we won’t be receiveing 13th month pay, no sick leave and the like. Its a No Work, No Pay Basis. A corresponding deduction for tardiness and absents. Requirements: DTR and Journal every month and for the whole year, a community diagnosis. Simple rules, isn’t? Time to shake my head.
Second day was just a continuation of it and end up half day. Our job description and some of the important programs was discussed this day. Then picture taking, click! click! (Im still looking for a copy of the group picture for Pampanga, anyone?)

Last February 24, 2012, me and my friend Kim had our 1st massage experience together, oil massage to be specific. We had it in Bali Palace because that’s where Kim’s mother works and viola we have an instant GC. (Thank you, Tita!)
We’ve been planning for this 3 months ago, and finally we made it! :) another bliss for our friendship! :)
I love the experience! I think the Balinese massage is just right for my skinny built. No putting much hard pressure. Long strokes techniques. But still it is relaxing and soothing. Plus the ambiance, background music, lights, temperature, scents, they all goes along with each other. Relaxing.
After the massage, what I want to do is to sleep. Yawning all the way home. I think that means I got a good massage - and that made me conclude why a lot had their massage after work, late at night. According to Tita, they have more guest at midnight.
The experience starts with an attendant replacing our shoes with their slippers, then washing our feet with warm water and liquid soap. It ends with a rice tea. I think massage usually do this.(First timer here.)
After the massage, click! click! moment na:)
Wall decor from their lobby.
Round couch at the receiving area. Perpendicular to this is a ceiling decor - same as with the wall decor above, with fancy lights at night. Didn’t get a chance to take a pic. :/ Hopin on my next visit. :)
Taken outside. See the wall picture at our back? There is a better one inside, right in front of the main door. From decor, to ceiling, to wall decor, so balinese (Asian). :)
With Tita Lazara, Nf Kim and Me. :) (phone edited.)

Thank You NF Kim for sharing this experience with me. and I love to relax and have a massage here again with you:)
Bali Palace is a Balinese massage spa at D. Tuazon St., Sta. Mesa Heights, Brgy. Lourdes, Quezon City (near St. Theresa’s College, Q.C.). The place looks pricey but not really, it is affordable.
Next thing I wanna try is Hydrotherapy, Water Spa :)
