How To Make A Toast Bread Tuna Pizza 

I almost forgot about this. I was checking my emails and have seen that my guest blog at #cookandenjoyrecipes was published yesterday. I was so busy that this most awaiting guest blog is now online. Btw, it is my first time that I participated in guest blogging and so you can imagine how happy I am now.

Now you will know more about me and my passions. You can check on the bottom of this reblogged post the links where I am writing. Yes, they are so many and I try my best to maintain all those sites. Please feel free to share this blog with every social media sites you want to. Thanks to all of my readers.

Thank you Esme.

I am so happy to introduce you to our next Guest here today, Thelma Alberts  She has a multitude of pages, see the end of this post where you can connect with her

Thelma Octoberfest

I was so surprised and happy when Esmé invited me to write a guest post to her The Recipe Hunter site. It was also a coincidence that at the same time she invited me, I was reading her blog about being a guest poster. I met her in The Recipe Hunter facebook group and since then I love interacting with the group. It took me a few weeks until I was ready to submit this guest blog of mine. Thank you for the invitation, Esmé  🙂

My Sombat Thai Massage and Wellness Salon Review

1524129291683.jpg

Good morning/evening/day everyone! It is a bright morning here where I am in Germany. It is said in the news that we have at least 25°Celsius today. It is about time that winter blues will pass away. Enough is enough.

Last weekend, I was traveling with a friend to have a massage in a new massage salon in the city, around 40 kilometers away from where we live. It is a new Thai massage salon of a former workmate. We were excited to see how the salon looked like and how the treatment would be.

My friend and I traveled by train and it was fun. It was like an outing for us. What a pity! The shopping malls were closed. We could have gone shopping after having a massage treatment or we could have shopped first and then the massage treatment. Shops are closed on Sundays in Germany unless there is a scheduled open Sunday in the city where the shops are open.

Sombat Thai Massage and Wellness salon is a wonderful and clean massage salon. We were entertained by the Thai owner and her daughter, who was our former workmate in a massage salon in our city. They showed us the treatment rooms, the toilets and the kitchen where they prepare their Thai food and cook water for making tea and serve this to their clients. The salon was well decorated as you can see it in the photos.

After drinking the hot yummy ginger tea, which was served to us and the wonderful talks with the owner and her daughter, we were given a massage which was a Thai oil massage treatment. I felt that I was working like a machine that Saturday before that treatment day and so my back was so sore and very tense. I was treated only for a back and shoulder massage as it was a must. The owner massaged me with her strong but soft hands. Acupressure, yoga stretching were done besides the effleurage massage techniques. Energy lines were treated as well.

My friend who traveled with me was still waiting for her masseuse. She helped the owner of the salon in massaging me until she was massaged, too. Instead of two hands, I had 4 hands giving massage to my back, neck, shoulder and arms. Wow! I have never had that before. I didn’t know which hands I had to concentrate on. All I know, they massaged my back like a piece of dough. It was wonderful. My sore back and shoulder turned into soft parts of my body. My back and shoulder pain was gone. I was revitalized. Sometimes, I wondered where the Thais got their strength in performing a Thai massage. After that massage treatment, we went to a Vietnamese restaurant nearby. After that, we traveled back home again with a train. It was a wonderful day indeed.

Btw, I am a wellness massage therapist and I am fond of going to a spa and a massage salon. Usually incognito😀

Thank you very much to Sombat Thai Massage and Wellness salon for the great massage treatment that I have received. I am sure I will come back again. This time after going shopping.

Thanks everyone for reading my blog. Please feel free to share this on any social media sites that you have. Have a beautiful day! Ciao!

Disclaimer: I am not paid whatsoever for writing this blog. I write a review about this salon as I am very contented with the treatment that I received.

Travel Philippines, My Home Country

Have you been to the Philippines? How did you like it?

The Philippines has ups and downs as well as some good and bad sides of a country. Well, each country has its own positive and negative sides and it is up to me or you how you see it. As what we have read or heard, the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Don´t you agree with me?

Amazing view of the Britania Islets from the pier.

My home country has more than 7, 107 islands and the new counts said that now, the Philippines consists of 7,641 islands (Source: CNN Philippines). There are an additional of 500+ islands, mostly not on the map yet and not even a dozen of them I have been to. Shame on me;-(  I am already making a list where to go. One day at a time, one vacation at a time. Soon, I am there again, with my pockets will. With Gods blessings.

Britania Islets in Surigao del Sur, photo taken from the boat.

The Philippines is divided into 3  islands: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Mindanao is the second largest island and which is located in the south. It is where I was born and lived a simple but a happy childhood life. I would love to visit at least 2 dozens of those islands and I have already started visiting some. I took a lot of photos and videos from my travel and it is a pity if those photos and videos are just hidden inside my drawer. So I am sharing these with you online on my Thellys Travel Videos & More channel.

The photo above looks like a nostalgic painting of the past but it is just an old photo of White Sand Island in Camiguin Island taken during our family bonding in 90´s.

Me, exploring the island and taking photos and videos of the beauty around me. I still have more photos but you know that when I need some for my blogs, I can´t find them in one place. My thoughts are just an unorganized one like my ideas for being creative.

Thanks for reading my blog. Here is the link to my article about  Britania Island. I will add more photos as soon as I will find some of Cebu and Puerto Princesa Palawan.

Thelma’s Mango Pomegranate Kaki Smoothie

Hello there! I am reblogging my Mango Pomegranate Kaki Smoothie recipe as I would love to make this again this Easter. I also want to share this with you here on my WordPress account.

I love making smoothies from different kinds of fruits. This is my one way of keeping healthy. Please feel free to check this recipe from The Recipe Hunter site. Maybe you can make this recipe this coming Easter celebration.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!

The Recipe Hunter

Mango Pomegranate Kaki SmoothieI had a lot of fruits in my fruit bowl in the living room. They were there for a few days as I had not eaten them. I thought, if I wouldn´t make something out of them they would be rotten. So, I made a smoothie and it was delicious.

My Paraffin Wax Treatment

Last Christmas, I received an Amazon gift voucher. I was happy because I was planning to buy a paraffin wax heater for a long time. I needed a paraffin wax treatment for my hands and feet as it has been a few years that I have not done it. The first time I have experienced this awesome treatment was when I was still working in a spa in Ireland.

IMG_0961.JPG

This paraffin wax treatment gives my feet and hands a wonderful soft skin. Besides that, it helps my painful cold hands and feet, especially during winter time. To know more about this treatment, just click on this link, which I have written a few years ago on my main writing site Hubpages.

Paraffin wax heater includes a package of paraffin wax, 2 gloves, 2 plastic bags and 2 socks. 1 package of wax was not enough for the treatment and so I bought another package.

Here is my tutorial with step by step photos:

IMG_0953

  1. Heat the paraffin wax heater (read the instruction of the heater) with a paraffin wax with or without flavor. There is paraffin wax with lavender, pineapple or peach smell. I chose lavender as I love the smell of it. When it is thoroughly melted, dip your clean right or left hand slowly in the wax 3 or 5 times depending on how thick you want it to be and be sure that it is not hot for your hand. There is a heat regulator in this heater but every one of us has a different temperature. What might not be hot for me is hot for you, so be careful.

IMG_0955.JPG

3. When your hand is thickening with paraffin wax, insert this inside the plastic bag. Seal it by pressing the edge on the wax.

IMG_0956

4. Then put your hand inside a cloth glove. Wait for 10 to 15 minutes until the wax hardened. When it is done, just pull the cloth glove. Then pull the plastic bag with the paraffin wax from your hand. You can feel how soft your hand has become. Soft as the baby’s bottom.

5. Repeat the treatment with your other hand.

Paraffin Wax Feet Treatment in a Slideshow:

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see in the slideshow, the feet paraffin wax treatment is the same procedure with the hands treatment. 10 minutes of this treatment costs at least 10 Euro here in Germany, so buying this heater is cheaper for me than going to a beauty or nail shop.

This awesome treatment is usually made before a manicure or a pedicure. The hard skin in the feet is gone with the paraffin wax. You will feel light-footed after this treatment.

Do you think you will try this treatment? BTW, this treatment is good if you are having arthritis as well as it increases the blood circulation of your body.

Thanks for reading and Happy Valentines Day!

Life As It Is!

Thanks for joining me!

“Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.” –Grandma Moses

I didn´t know that Grandma Moses, whoever she was, was the owner of this quote. This quote has followed me all my life together with the quote “Be Prepare”, the motto of girl scouting. Life is indeed how and what I make out of it.

This is my first blog here at WordPress. I have an account here for many years but I didn´t know at that time when I opened an account that I could write my blogs on this site for free. I opened an account as I was not able to comment on the blogs of my fellow bloggers. It took me months to decide to write here. I was writing at Blogjob which was also a WordPress site but I ceased writing there after the payment was stopped.

I am writing online since 2011 though I am not a journalist and not even taking a course in writing. It just happens that I have a passion to write and writing online is my exercise in speaking and writing in English, which is my third language. My first writing site is Hubpages. I am still writing there.  Then followed some other writing sites that are gone forever like Bubblews and ChatAbout.

Thellys Lifestyle and Travel is my site about traveling outside Germany, like traveling to and from my home country Philippines. I will be writing about health-related blogs,  reviews of hotels, restaurants, cafes and products I have used.

Wish me good luck for this site. Thanks for reading.
