Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria 2

Hello everyone!  I'm back.  When I started blogging, I had many ideas as to what I would like to put in this blog.  I still have the ideas, however, the time for blogging seems to elude me.  So, please bear with me if I stop blogging for 2-4 weeks.  I'm still here (probably stalking/reading your blogs), but cannot write my own blog post.  Anways, let me share with you another point of view regarding the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria (read my previous blog post here).  A week ago, I was invited to stay in the Crowne Plaza by a business associate as part of a conference.  Upon checking-in, I was asked by the front desk personnel if I will be sharing a room with Mr. C____.  Whoa! What?!  Well, not really...I don't sleep with strangers...Teehee.  I said no and she gave me my card key for my room.  As I opened the door to my room...lo and behold...I was booked in a SUITE ROOM!  Yehey!  That was really unexpected!  Here are pictures of my room...

The room is spacious and equipped with the usual hotel amenities.  There's no free wifi though.  However, you can use the free broadband internet connection.  All in all, I would say that this is a great suite to spend some time in.  Unfortunately, I get to use it for a few hours only (for sleeping then check-out before 12nn the next day).

That's it for now.  Talk to you later!  Thanks for dropping by.

I'm back with a restaurant review.  I spent a night at Sofitel Hotel a few weeks back and I had the chance to eat at their restaurant, Spiral for the buffet breakfast.  I was overwhelmed by the choices in the buffet!  There were different stations and a wide array of food selections.  They even have a room full of cheeses, a variety of wine and even champagne!  I just took random shots since I was too shy to do the whole "blogger taking nice pics".  Maybe next time when I feel like a true blogger and when I have a nice camera.  Anyways, suffice to say that there were lots of food and it tasted good.  Here are some of the shots I took.

I have heard and read good reviews for Spiral restaurant.  If you are in the area (and have the moolah), then try the buffet at Spiral restaurant.  Happy eating!

Thank you for dropping by!  Talk to you soon.

Hi everyone!  Let me share with you my dining experience at Hermanos.  Hermanos is a Mexican restaurant chain in the Philippines.  It serves the usual Mexican fare of tacos, buritos, chilis, and quesadillas.
This was what I ordered...
Left - soft taco, right - chili, middle - quesadilla

Chicken quesadilla
There were 3 of us who ate that night.  We completely finished all our orders.  It was yummy and the price was just right.  It's a pay-as-you-order restaurant, so don't expect fine dining attention from the staff.

All in all, I had a pleasant experience at Hermanos.  I will come back in the future.

Thanks for dropping by!  Talk to you soon!
