Where are you going for the holidays?

[UPDATE] The promo has been extended to January 31, 2011! Please click on the image for details.

My brother and his family came home to spend the holidays in the Philippines. I tagged along with them to Boracay (where I’m writing this post from) for some R & R.

I usually spend the holidays at home, since I prefer to stay at home when everyone else is traveling. This year, however, some friends are inviting me to go to one of those New Year’s Eve countdown thingies, followed by media noche in one of the hotels in Makati. Since I’m not too excited about the prospect of going home in the wee hours of January 1st (this is the Philippines, after all, where firecrackers can be set off by anyone who can afford to buy it), we decided to just stay somewhere close.

A friend from The Ascott alerted me to an ongoing promo that can help decide our fate on December 31st: The Ascott and Somerset Serviced Residences are offering special holiday rates for stays between December 20, 2010 to January 31, 2011. Rates starts at Php 6,225 per night for Ascott Makati and Php 3,090 per night for Somerset residences. Promo’s only until December 31, 2010 though, so we need to decide soon. What say you, Magnetic_rose and Hamster-san? Promo’s been extended to January 31, 2011! But since it’s almost Christmas, we need to book soon, Magnetic_rose and Hamster-san!

    Getting away even if only within city limits for New Year’s…not so bad. Hmm. This is something to consider as a New Year’s back-up plan!
