Break muna sa travel post. Well.. I'll be leaving tomorrow anyway. Hihihi! Nauubusan na ko ng kwentong lakwatsa. I was scanning my camera to check if I have enough memory for my trip and found these. Tamad talaga akong mag delete ng pictures. To give you an idea, my Anilao trip with Chyng Reyes last September 2011 is still on my cam. My friend once scolded me saying "Uhmm. Maki! hindi mo ba alam ang salitang BACKUP!?!? Gusto mo i-brief pa kita?!?!" lol!
I got an invitation from Astoria Plaza Hotel before Christmas last year. I thought it was because of my blog or something. Ang feeling lang. hahaha! I found out it was my friend who referred me (Hi Mich! I miss you). E PG mode ako nun, so I grabbed that chance. Since it was a free buffet dinner for two, I immediately dragged my brother dahil sulit na sulit sa kanya ang mga ganyang kainang walang hanggan. hahahah! Peace..
They promised they would give me GC for an overnight stay in Bohol. Its validity is until March of this year. Who am I to refuse right? But there's a big BUT attached to it. I need to stay for 45 minutes after our dinner for a short presentation and tour around the hotel. Keri boom boom lang. So yun na!
|My first meal|
Mom: Rule #1: Don't eat rice and pasta (which I obviously violated. lol!)
Mom: Rule #3: Avoid soups. They have a special ingredient to make you feel full quickly. (Engk! I just did.)
Mom: Rule #4: Avoid too much desserts. Sweets increases "Umay" factor. (My mom knows me well. Hindi pwedeng hindi ako dudukot pag may nakikita ako sa mesa. hahaha!)
|Hindi ako nakapagpigil. hahah! Ayan at may kagat.|
Mom: Rule #5: Eat just a small portion of everything else.
Me: Uhmm... How small is small kaya? ^_^
I'll leave it up to you if you think I followed the last rule. hahahah!
Moving on.. we were serenaded by.. uhmm... the singers?! lol! I don't know them. But their performance was superb. Ayoko pa sanang umalis ng may dumating ng pogi sa harap ko. Syempre sumama ako sa apaf! Mas yummy sya kesa sa pagkain. hahahah!
|Wala siya diyan sa picture kung siya man ang hinanap mo..|
He invited us to tour around their rooms. Bakit ko ba naisama sama ang brother ko. Panira ng jackpot moment. hahaha! Charot!
|Imagine nyo na lang solo DAPAT kami sa ganitong lugar...hmp!|
I was impressed. Great interior designs they got there. The space were maximized. The unit is following a minimalist mixed with tropical style. Aylabet! <3
|That tall guy? akin siya! bwahahaha! The other guy is my brother... bored.|
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take a picture of him. Shyness. Oh well... Let's all move on and get into the room..
|For Kids only|
|The Master's Bedroom... hmmmmmm.. hahaha!|
|Overlooking Ortigas Center|
After that, he started offering their membership and the privilege I can acquire through it. I almost said yes because attached to it are great discounts for my future travels locally and internationally. Unfortunately, I have other priorities and I don't really have something to give out that time. Just to make it up to them, I'm writing this entry now. hihihi! They gave me the gift certificate as promised though I didn't gave in to their offer. Still, I'd like to thank them you for the great experience.
Mukha lang akong mayaman pero hindi. Chos! If you're going to ask me if I will be using it, No. I'll be off somewhere in Mindanao tomorrow. Ciao! Until next time!
