PH | Holiday Inn & Suites Makati: One Kid-Friendly Hotel

We've been very much blessed to have enjoyed staycations in a number of hotels around the Metro.  They're great alternatives to out-of-town vacations if ever you find yourself pressed for time to get away from the city (and what we definitely do have lacking of is some quality vacation time with the Husband here in PH what with his busy schedule and all).  I've noticed, though, that very few can boast to be truly kid-friendly, except for a handful.

One such hotel that is indeed family-friendly is the new Holiday Inn & Suites in Makati.

Checking in on a weekend ensured that we enjoyed all their basic commodities plus more.

Accomodations are New!

Our rooms were tastefully furnished.  And being a newly opened hotel, we enjoyed very clean and new accommodations.  TIP: Be sure to ask for the local residents' rate.

Checking the refreshments in the bar, you'd find the usual snacks plus some more extras.

Too bad the bear and Crayola activity pack weren't free.  =)

Kids Stay and Eat Free

Breakfast the next day at their flavors restaurant was an enjoyable affair, as well.


Food aside (which, by the way, was delicious), the Little One enjoyed her meal as she was also provided with her own set of utensils.

And it being the weekend, the hotel staff also arranged a small play area for their little guests near the lobby, right beside the restaurant.

Aside from some toys, there was also a coloring station.

Plus a Wii gaming station as well (using a huge protector as a screen none the less).

Glorietta: The Next Door Neighbor

Another plus is it's very close proximity to Glorietta.  In fact, it's actually located right beside it, with an entry way leading straight to Glorietta 2.  A major plus, especially for me, since I could enjoy some quality me shopping time while the Husband and the Little One do their own thing.

Truly an enjoyable weekend.  There was something for all of us to enjoy.  J

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
