Flower Power

My mom turn 60 last month and I decided to give her a bouquet and while browsing at the net I found flowerstore.ph they have a lot of flowers to choose from and it's affordable. I'm not really fond of bouquet but upon seeing the bouquet delivered I can't help but to mesmerize to it's beauty. That's why I requested to my husband to buy me the preserved flower.

I might say that the bouquet is much better than the preserved flower. As you can see at the photo the preserved flower lost it's one studs I even look after it in between roses but I can't find it. Overall, I can say it's a good surprise for the one you love even there's no celebration.

Where to order?

Boracay Haven Suites (November 2017)

My husband and I celebrated our 2nd wedding Anniversary in Boracay. And looking for hotel to stay is overwhelming.

I'm glad that we found Boracay Haven Suite. It's not a beach front hotel as you have to walk 5 minutes to the beach front.

I booked directly to their hotel website http://www.boracayhavenclub.com

I just found out that there are two Boracay Haven Hotel the other one is Boracay Haven Resort which is situated in Station 2. We stay in Boracay Haven Suites, their address is Station 1 but actually it's a boundary between station 1 and 2.

We avail their November promo which is 40% of their regular rates. We stay 3 days and 2 night (PHP7,300) all in. According to the confirmation letter we got this in the package.
  • Use of pool and beach front
  • Free wifi
  • Welcomed Drinks
  • Complimentary Snacks and drinks ( in the room)
  • Turn down service
  • Use of on-site Sauna

We didn't receive a welcome drinks, we didn't use the on-site sauna . And about the turn down service a hotel staff knock on our room and said 'turn down service' but we are resting during that time.

Anyway upon reaching the hotel via Van that we avail through Klook (which is not recommended)

We were welcomed by the hotel staff and I thought we can rest right away. But the front desk said that the check-in time is 2:00 PM I know it's a protocol but we reached the place at 8:00 AM and we have a baby. I thought they will allow us to check in like we have experienced in Costa Pacifica Baler, but oh well... each hotel has their own rules and maybe the hotel is fullybooked that time. But I suggest that some hotel must be considerate for those people who will arrive early like us.

(Snack Bar)

Overall, we had a great stay and we enjoy Boracay.

One Pacific Place Serviced Residences (April 2017)

 We're here last April for a quick stay cation. It's near Glorrieta and Century Mall. Checking-in took time, we wait for 30 mins just to be called that our room is ready (the longest so far we ever had).Room is okay it was big enough for us, but there's a stinky odor coming out from the sink and our mistake on not calling their attention about this matter 'cause even we spray a cologne it's still smelly (Room 3102 at 31st floor).

We booked via Travelbook.ph
