We had a last hurrah before the summer officially ended through the Summer Soiree at Paseo that was organized by Discover MNL.
While a summer soiree often calls for an elegant evening party, we are happy that it is not a fancy schmancy gathering. The event was just absolute fun as we get to experience the food and services from the establishments owned by Ms. Valeen Montenegro and her boyfriend, Mr. Selu Lozano.
Z Salon Magallanes
First, we were directed to go to Z Salon Magallanes to experience their hair and/or make-up service. It is located inside Selu’s Bar so boyfriends/ husbands can have their meet up with the boys while you’re being beautified. Straight from the salon, your significant other will have beaming eyes as he introduces you to his friends. Or if there are some ladies lingering around him at the bar, you can easily ward them off with your new look. Just remember no matter how we look, inner beauty
Just remember inner beauty outshines outer appearance as it is the only thing that is constant.
This is us at the salon while waiting for my turn to be serviced. The seats were really comfortable and, like most salons, the area is well lit.
Having naturally curly hair, I find it pretty challenging to do my style my hair with braids on my own. So I took this opportunity to have the hairstyle I’ve always wanted to try – the waterfall braid. Lloyd says it looks really well on me. Based on the back photo I’ve seen, I couldn’t agree more.
Z Salon Magallanes’ hairstyle/ flat iron for those with straight hair is at PHP 300 (or USD 6). You can add another PHP 300 (or USD 6) for shampoo & blow dry before having your hair styled.
I also had my eye makeup done especially my eyebrows so it’s more defined. You’ll see the result in the other photos below. By the way, their makeup services start at PHP 1,500 (or USD 30).
Make sure to schedule an appointment if you plan to drop by so they are well prepared in servicing you. You may contact them at Tel No. 8510518 or Cell No. 0917 513 9917.
Address: Unit 200, 2nd Flr., Oakridge Bldg., Paseo De Magallanes, Makati City.
M Studio – Dance to Inspire
A gathering won’t be complete without dancing. Thanks to the choreographers of M Studio, we got to have a feel of the studio facility through the dance classes they held. We danced Zumba, Powerhop, and K-Pop that night.
Other dance classes the offer are the following:
- Argentine Tango
- Inspire Kids
This is us doing some K-Pop moves on Big Bang’s Somebody to Love. Not bad for our first try.
Interested in enrolling? Contact them at Mobile: 0915 552 4838 or Telephone: 772-8240.
Visit them at 3rd Flr. 1012 San Antonio St. Oakridge Plaza, Paseo De Magallanes, Makati Ciy.
Unna’s Corner & Selu’s Bar
Just right beside M Studio is Unna’s Corner whose overarching theme is centered around the adorable pug named Unna. It is a cozy café that not only offers coffee but also offers healthy but filling comfort food and shakes.

Unna’s Corner Food and Drinks
We arrived late so we ended up eating at their veranda which they share with Selu’s bar. I’m sorry in advance for the lower quality of photos. It’s pretty challenging to take photos in low light.
SOUTHERN CHICKEN CHA-CHA, PHP 250 (or USD 5)
It’s BBQ chicken sandwiched in between soft ciabatta bread.
LA CUCARACHA SALAD, PHP 280 (or USD 5.67)
It’s cheese quesadilla over fresh green salad spiced by with jalapeño pepper slices.
NUTTY MAMBO, PHP 150 (or USD 3)
This is an almond milkshake.
We didn’t get to take photos of Selu’s Bar but here is one of the bar chows that you can enjoy.
TRUFFLE FRIES, PHP 245 (or USD 4.96)
We capped off the night with a mini-photo shoot session in Unna’s corner coziest spot. The spot truly is not only perfect for relaxing but also it’s a great spot for your next Facebook profile photo or Instagram post.
Want proof? Here is a shot was taken by Waltz Siy of Discover MNL. I know! This feels like a prenuptial photo already. Hahaha!
Overall, Paseo De Magallanes has these establishments that serve as a one stop shop for beautification, fitness, and even chilling with friends. We can’t wait to go back to avail their services again and also have a photo with Unna when we catch him at her corner.
