Hotel Review: KL Tower Serviced Residences

Disclaimer: I was invited by the hotel to stay overnight at their property, free of charge.

Since I work from home, and have enrolled all my bills to online banking, there is very little reason for me to leave my house. When cabin fever hits, I venture out of my cave, and make sure to schedule everything in one day, so that I won’t have to go out again until the following week (or at least I try to). That’s why for the past couple of dinner invites from friends who work and live in Makati, I opted to book an apartment in Makati to save the hassle of having to rush back home to work. I also made sure that it’s right before I’m flying out, so I’m nearer to the airport.

As luck would have it, the kind people of KL Tower Serviced Residences reached out to me as I was looking for a place to book last March 14th. They booked me for an overnight stay in their One Bedroom Loft.

Bohol, Philippines, Reviews

Review: Ocean Suites Bohol

I normally don’t travel during Philippine holidays, primarily because my work requires me to follow the US holidays, but also because I know everybody will be traveling then, and the prices go up. However, My birthday falls between Thanksgiving and Bonifacio Day this year, so when I chanced upon a Cebu Pacific seat sale, I quickly booked a trip to Bohol with my friends Sunshine and Bea.

Just a couple of days after that, I received an email from Deal Grocer, asking me to choose among their hotel deals for an overnight stay. I was still in Bulusan that time (September), and won’t be back in Manila until the end of October, so I thought, why not use the voucher for a stay on my birthday, during our Bohol trip?

One of the newest hotels in Iloilo city, it is located not in the downtown city center, in the area near the city’s new developing CBD.

Living the high life at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong

Shangri-La Hotels has always been about luxury. Despite knowing that and after two previous stays in Singapore and Sydney, I was bowled over when I found out just how luxurious staying at the Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong can be.

Yay for paperless check-in!

The experience starts at check-in. I arrived at the hotel just past nine in the morning, way too early to be checking in at any hotel. I was just admiring the reception’s Wacom tablet, which they use for checking in guests, when I was told that I’m to head to the 56th floor, where Horizon Club Guests have an exclusive check-in.
