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.

If you’ve been following me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you’d know that I had a grand time at the Midas Hotel last Friday, as evidenced by the copious amounts of alcohol and desserts.
Not that alcohol and sweets are essential for a fun evening, but it does help, specially when had with good company and it certainly makes the conversations much more… interesting.

Have you ever been to the Manila Hotel? The first time I stepped inside (that I can remember), was back in December 31, 2010. I knew it was a five-star hotel, but I didn’t really know what to expect. Though not modern as hotels nowadays favor, it was grand and decked out in holiday decorations, it was simply magical.
The Manila Hotel all decked out for the holidays
The Manila Hotel brings out the decorations in full force this year with a Nutcracker holiday theme. Towering Nutcrackers stand among the pillars, while festive decors in red, green and gold dot the hotel interiors. A huge Christmas tree is the focal point of the lobby, with twinkling fairy lights, decked with hundreds of ornaments and topped with an angel.
