9th February 2010 – 16 February 2010
We stayed at the classy five star (read: snooty rich uppity infestation) Peninsula Hotel in Makati City. I took some pictures of the room but because my camera does no justice, just check out the room and hotel here.
It’s close to RM1k a night and a place we’d NEVER EVER stay (or rather can’t afford to!) if it wasn’t on the company tab. As much as I love 5 star hotels, I do feel out of place esp when you see these rich people walking around all made up and dressed up early morning and I’m in a simple blouse or t-shirt, Aladdin pants or jeans with slippers, lol. Sometimes even when the hubby asks me to tag along for early b’fast before he goes to work, I am shy to go down (sans makeup and under dressed) coz I fear I might get mistaken for his maid or village ‘keep’, haha. Yes, I’m weird that way!!
Two words to sum this trip: Lots of SLEEPING & SHOPPING. Three if I count eating too
Every day consisted of waking up around 9a.m to send the hubby to work (note: as in walk him a few steps to the hotel room door to kiss him goodbye, lol), before l attempt to go back to sleep (but not without watching tv for a bit) and having a light breakfast for peanut’s sake! Then it’s off to sleep until 1pm or so before I get ready to go to the mall. Which even then I still contemplate if I really want to go coz I’ve been the laziest during the entire trip! Then it’s a quiet lunch alone at some quaint cafe, shop shop shop for about 2 hours or so, back to the hotel, watch more tv, nap a little and wait for the hubby to come back with some tea and snack (tea time ok!) before we get ready to go out for dinner.
Shit, this is the life to lead and it’s something I could probably get accustomed to. Or at least this worked for poor me for a week, hahaha.
Here’s a glimpse of CNY in Manila
And some of the restaurants we went to:
Casa Armas @ Greenbelt

Just ignore the attention seeker
Thai Restaurant! You can’t take the 25% Thai out of me
A satisfied face
Dessert at Bizu!
And Zunni’s, an Italian Restaurant that should have been the place for V-day, but whatever.
Also got to do a little bit of clubbing coz hey just because you’re knocked up it doesn’t mean you can’t go to a club
Hard Rock Café
*points at Vodka Mudshake* – don’t tell anyone, I took a sip and it was mad awesome! 7 more months to go….
They were having some pre-Valentine’s Day celebration with Durex as the sponsor, hah.
Yea we got some free condoms and I reckon I would have been a great poster girl for that coz…..
WELL ITS TOO LATE FOR THAT NOW ISNT IT!
Bastards, try to ridicule me.
I got bored
What else, oh I am SO done shopping for my baby’s clothes already I know, I never once denied being a nut case but more on that in a different post.
1 more day before the hubby gets back!
