Know What You Need at 9.0 Niner

English Proficiency course is not IELTS Review.

It's a "refresher" program for the English language, 'ika nga. Or, sa iba, enhancement of English communication skills.

We have no plans of migrating or studying abroad when we started the English Proficiency classes at 9.0 Niner IELTS Review Center, which, by the way, we got from Metrodeal at a cheaper price. It was more of improving my Business communication skills due to my job's demands in the advertising world.

The opportunity of studying overseas knocked 4 months after we started taking the program.

When I was informed that I need to take the IELTS test, I thought of taking the Unlimited IELTS review but I find it expensive.

I was confident with my English skills: Reading, Writing & Listening; but not with speaking since I have no practice after I left the call center industry 7 years ago. So I thought of enrolling for One-on-One Speaking Tutorial/Coaching at 9.0 Niner.

But then again, the overall band score I needed was 5.5. So I took my IELTS without taking any review or coaching.

And I was right about myself... I got an overall band score of 7.5. What pulled my score down? My speaking skill... I got 6.5 for it. But that's acceptable. ;) I was expecting a 5.5 score for the Speaking skill anyway. :))

I'm still thankful I took my English Proficiency classes at 9.0 Niner IELTS Review Center (Taft-EDSA). My husband and I had fun learning. The coaches are friendly and helpful. And, most important of all, they know what they're doing! ;)

Permanent Blowdry with Salon De Orient and Haircut with Piandré

I had my first Permanent Blowdry last July 2013 with Salon De Orient, which I got from Metrodeal.

Before having the procedure done, I did a research. I found out that the treatment fades in 3 months with proper care, which means using shampoos with no SLS.

Having this knowledge, I used Human Heart Nature's Strengthening Shampoo & Moisturizing Shampoo alternately. I was surprised that it could last more than 5 months. 

I was satisfied with my first permanent blowdry. I forgot, though, the name of the guy in ponytail who did my hair. I recommended it to my sister.

I had my 2nd permanent blowdry last February 2014. I was kinda disappointed with how it was done. Half my hair was done perfectly and the other half still got waves. This time, it was the lady with eyeglasses who did my hair.

Then my sister had her first permanent blowdry. We got her voucher from Ensogo. I found out through her that the one who did my hair back in July 2013 was Ricky.

I was supposed to go back to Salon De Orient and have the waves fixed (I'm thinking of requesting Ricky to fix it) but I'm not sure if they'll entertain my complaint. Good thing, I was able to pass by Piandre Salon at Greenbelt 1 and Mr. Greg did a good job on my hair. The haircut adds volume to my hair, which I really wanted in the first place. It's kinda shorter than I expected but I absolutely love it.

So the next time I'll have my Permanent Blowdry, I'll have my hair cut done by Mr. Greg first then head to Salon De Orient for the Permanent Blowdry by Ricky. ;)
