Browhaus: The Ultimate Solution for a Bad BROW-mance

     Another great shop in Serendra, Browhaus is the place to be for those people who are caught in a bad browmance. Oh yes! For those people  with bushy, unruly or even if the problem is scarcity in the eyebrows, just drop by to Browhaus and rest assured that its one of those decisions that is worth the time, money and effort.

Before we begin, let’s define first what an eyebrow is. According to Wikipedia:

The eyebrow is an area of thick, delicate hairs above the eye that follows the shape of the lower margin of the browridges.

     Brows are considered as a major facial feature. Its main function is to really prevent moisture from flowing into the eyes. However, in our society nowadays, it is more associated with beauty and fashion rather than its physical use.  If we look at it this way, brows really define the shape of our face which gives definition on our eyes and forehead. If done correctly, it can add a plus factor on how we look overall. However if modified incorrectly, it can lead to a total and major disaster which can be a bad nightmare that we need to live on for quite some time while waiting for it to grow back again.

     Good thing that there are a lot of ways in enhancing our brows such as tweezing, waxing and threading. However, please keep in mind that shaping the eyebrows is dependent on a person’s facial shape and there will always be a particular style that is tailored fit for each one of us. It’s really okay if we do this modifications on our own but if in case we feel some hesitations, it would best to leave this to the skilled brow architects who had months or even years of training and experience in redefining and reshaping brows.

     Personally, I have tried going to salons and even performed self-fix on my own brows.  I could say that some of them were very successful and I was truly happy with the results. On the other hand, there were those moments when it didn’t turn out the way I expected it to be and  I don’t want to reiterate how BROW-horrific I looked like after doing such cruelty on my brows.

    I first learned of Browhaus through the magazines that I personally collect.  However, it was not only until a few years back when I got my first hand experience of trying out their services — mainly due to its distance from where I live. It was during the BDJ event held at Eastwood Open Park that I actually tried their famous threading services. My Serendra experience was the second time I have tried the services of Browhaus.

   Going back to Serendra, once I was called by the front desk attendant, I was immediately brought to a small room with walls adorned with bright green paint.

   So how did it turn out? I could say that I was highly satisfied of their service and I was definitely a certified happy customer when I got out of their booth. Their customer service is absolutely amazing and the one who assisted me is very accommodating and  really know how to handle my needs. She taught me what type of brow style would best fit me and she also gave me some tips on how to maintain my brows once it grows back.

   I loved my brows and I did keep on flaunting it.

   From all of the store’s wall decorations, this one is my favorite. I love the concept of this print ad. Its so catchy, straightforward and best of all, it gives hope to those who think their brows can no longer be given justice.

     Here’s their wall of fame which features different blog posts about Browhaus. Hopefully, I can see mine here one day ^_^.      Here’s a picture of me prepping up!     I decided to take pictures of  my brows before, during and after the session for comparison. However the final picture is so blurry so I didn’t bother to put it here anymore. Here’s how my brow looks like.


Halfway Done

The Brow Expert: Ate Fe


I Am Hurt But I Will Be Strong

     These past few days, I realized I have been on shaky ground. Things are getting a lot crazier and complicated and it felt like I just want to STOP everything. I’m on the verge of breaking down and my mind is being clouded by my overwhelming emotions. I need to vent out. I need to let go of this depressing feeling. ‘Coz if not, I’ll be in turmoil and it will really take some time for me to heal.

     I write today not because of something else but rather for myself. I write because I  need to let go of this hatred feeling that is ruling over me.  I need to regain my composure and redeem back my old self again.

     It’s so hard to understand why some people would only take you for granted. I just couldn’t get it when people change so fast without giving you a valid reason. Sometimes, I do feel like life is unfair but I don’t want to indulge myself into that kind of thinking. I’m still hoping that things will be better soon. But how soon? I really don’t know and that is killing me deep inside. How I wish that things can be less complicated so that I won’t have to undergo this kind of emotion. It doesn’t feel good and it doesn’t feel right. All i can say is that I AM NOT HAPPY. How hard can it be for a person to be straight forward and just be honest? Difficult but the effect would be less painful. Is this what they call bitterness? Maybe — I think.

     Right now, I need to teach myself on how to become stronger once more but its easier said than done. If only I have the ability to turn back time and correct the past, I’ll definitely do it. However, that would be next to impossible already. All I can do is just wait and believe that time will heal everything. I’m still hoping that one day, i’ll be able to find the answer that I was looking for.

A Salute to the Heroic Dog “Kabang”

     Dogs are man’s best friend and protector. This is what “Kabang“, a mutt from my local home town— Zamboanga City, had displayed after losing her muzzle in order to save her master’s children.  A truly heartwarming and incredible story I must say for an extraordinary dog who displayed an act of heroism in order to save the lives of two, little children from being hit by a motorcycle.

     Unfortunately, it came with a price of permanent damage and lost on the dog’s snout which in turn brought difficulty on how she eats. She is now known as the dog with no face. After the incident, Kabang is using her paws to help feed herself. On the contrary, it’s good to know that Kabang’s owners declined the offer of the local vet’s office from turning over the dog for custody to perform euthanasia or mercy killing. It was really a wise decision for the owners not to give up on Kabang despite of her current condition. This only shows how very grateful the family is for having the dog. Despite the indecent proposal, a good Samaritan named Veterinarian Anton Lim from Tzu Chi Foundation came and helped out the family in treating the injuries of Kabang. He’s the one who is currently administering the antibiotics on the dog to make her wounds heal faster.

     Truly, I consider this as one of the most remarkable stories about a dog’s heroic act and its willingness to give up everything just to serve its own family. Hopefully I was able to give justice by providing special tribute to this lifesaving dog named “Kabang” and her epic story. I’m also hoping that through this blog, I was able to share her story to somebody  else who can help Kabang on her rehabilitation as this dog really deserves to live a normal and longer life.

Kudos to you Kabang!
