Cebu in 3 days :)

CEBU 2012

Long weekends call for trips, and this time, we went to Cebu for some sight-seeing and shopping.
For affordable travels, my tip is to plan ahead. 
Sure spontaneous trips are fun and exciting but planning ahead of time saves a lot of time, energy and chaching. :)

so there, we booked in advance our airline tickets. 
It's also great to watch out promo fares for great discounts ;)
Christmas tree at Mactan Airport

First Stop: Brunch at Shakeys- IT park

meet my cousin- Eunice
and my sister- Faye
chillin like a villain at Islands Stay Hotel
Since most hotels were fully booked at that time, we were forced to stay at Regal Hotel ( just in front of Ayala mall). We made online reservations to Sugbutel, unfortunately they are not quite updated with their website and did not honor our reservation. 
Anyways, we didn't regret staying at Regal Hotel for they offer us a good place to stay, buffet breakfast and it's very accessible. :)
so of course, staying at Regal means more shopping time at Ayala! wee :)

Ni Hao! 
We went to Taoist Temple. It's located in Beverly Hills- a private subdivision

 looks like we're in China right? thanks to the picturesque Chinese background.
You may wear shorts/ slippers in the temple, but inside the prayer room, you can't wear shorts.

 2012 is the year of the dragon so I had a pic with my Mushu. haha 

then we went for more shopping :)

and of course we tried the famous Skywalk at Crown Regency :)

 yes, our cebu trip was supah fun :)



It ain't the end of the world

Hongkong photo diary

  Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true 

our first day
Our flight was scheduled at 10am, but since it was delayed, we got to join the 8am flight. that means, more time in HK! their airport is indeed very magnificent thus gaining its title as one of the world's best airports. ranking third after Incheon and Singapore.  isn't that amazing? :)

I love how everything's is so modern yet so clean :D

We stayed at Silka West Hotel.
 It is a 3 star hotel but believe me, their accommodation is more fit for a king! no wonder they have a lot of guests everyday. The interiors are really modern and classy.
The food is also superb.
And of course! not to forget about their stylish and very comfortable rooms.

don't mind our messy room. haha

Since the hotel is in the middle of the city, we didn't have any problems where to eat. So after we had our dinner, we went to Metro Harbour Plaza, it's a mall that has a nautical theme. :D

2nd day at Avenue of the Stars

the magnificent fireworks display
2 thumbs up!

words can't express how much I enjoyed and almost died with  the rides. haha
