One of my favorite episodes in Miranda is “Holiday,” where, when goaded by her friends and family about not being cool and wild, impulsively declared that she’s going on a weekend getaway to Thailand. When she gets home though, instead of booking a flight, she booked a room at the hotel right around the corner.

I didn’t have much expectations for Queenstown, and I was blown away by its natural beauty as soon as I caught a glimpse from the plane window.

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?
