PH | Summit Ridge Hotel, Tagaytay

It's been ages since I've been to Baguio City.  Plans never push through (you know how it is) due to time constraints and financial obligations and the like.  Good thing we live close by to the very next best thing -- Tagaytay!

Considered to have the second highest elevated area in the country, it's no wonder they get to enjoy cool, crisp, refreshing (*sigh*) weather for most of the year.  And with its close proximity to the Metro, it's the ideal place to cool off when one finds the capital too stifling (and polluted and hot and dirty, etc.)

Hence, we did, one weekend, pack our overnight bags for a short stay at Summit Ridge Hotel for some needed R&R.

Summit Ridge Hotel
 
Developed and managed by Robinsons Land Corp., Summit Ridge Hotel is located along the Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Highway.  Pretty much near a lot of interesting attractions to boot.  They also boast that ALL their rooms have a view of the famous Taal Volcano.

Slightly foggy but it's there

Rooms are simply furnished, spacious and are equipped with complimentary WIFI.

There are the usual signs of wear (it's not a new hotel, after all); but everything's clean and in good working order.

We've been fortunate enough to have enjoyed a number of overnight stays in various other Tagaytay hotels; but the one thing that always baffles me is the presence of swimming pools in these establishments.

I mean, given the cold temperature at Tagaytay, would you really want to go for a dip?

Those who don't want to freeze their b***s off can opt to burn calories at the hotel's gym or activity center.  A SeriAsia Spa offers uhmm.. spa and massage services (in-room available, too), at surprisingly affordable prices (considering they are located inside a hotel).

Meals are provided by their in-house restaurant, C2 Classic Cuisine (a huge plus as I am a fan.)

Buffet breakfast is also served here.

Attack!

Robinsons' Summit Ridge Promenade is right next door where you can opt to dine instead or stock up a little on snacks at the supermarket.  Pasalubong can also be found there, although the hotel also has a Delfa's Food Products branch in the lobby.

Most important of all, you get to the enjoy the cool weather.  Such a refreshing change from the noise and pollution of the city!

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!  =)
