My Long Weekend Staycation at Hotel Jen Manila

I wasn’t really keen on doing Hotel Reviews even though I have wanted to do so for quite some time now. Perhaps it’s because I was trying to get some inspiration in doing my hotel write ups, got stuck in my comfort zone of doing food reviews or maybe I just needed more exposure.

Nonetheless, this past weekend had been nothing short of amazing as we got the rare chance to stay in the former Trader’s Hotel Manila which was rebranded and named Hotel JenΒ to cater to the younger generation (Cough, Cough) namely “The Milennials”.Β

Food Review: Madison’s Bistro Moderne at Edsa Shangrila

With a lot of events lining up my calendar for the past weeks or so I wasn’t able to attend to my blogging duties last week and because of that I will try to make up for it during my off days from work/ school. Yey! Thank you Lord for these days off wherein I can sit back, relax, pamper myself, watch some of my movies on my laptop and attend to various events while catching up on my blogging duties and readings.

I try to fill my calendar with as much activities as possible because as the saying goes “YOLO” or “You only live Once” and you should make the most of your youth trying to explore various cuisines, watching some feel good movies.

Anyway, moving on since P made it to the Dean’s list in Ateneo this Semester (Whohoo! Congrats! πŸ™‚ Awesome job) and also since he recently came back from Singapore we headed out to find a good place to dine. We were supposed to go to Heat in Edsa Shangrila (The last time I ate here was during my graduation) it’s been quite a while already. However after scourging around the different plates and after knowing the price I did not pursue the idea of dining here that night and suggested a more budget friendly alternative instead. (It’s actually 2,500 per head so if you’re planning a romantic date night out with your lady love come in prepared with your cash).

Tender Bob’s on a Sunday

I had work last Sunday after our Marketing Finals last Saturday followed by a Fellowship dinner at our Professor’s place in Bel- Air Makati. Thanks for being so hospitable Sir! πŸ˜€ I think I had a drink too many or maybe I easily just get too “woozy” after downing some liquor since we were so happy that this term is finally over and we were to start anew. Whohoo! Three cheers to that!

Yey! We are actually nearing finishing off our MBA’s! πŸ˜€ Whohoo! πŸ™‚ Well, that’s for those who have only a few subjects left, as for me. I still have a year to go before I graduate since I have only completed around 20 plus units or so and a lot more to go but of course as early as now I have to carefully plan my thesis already so that I won’t stress myself out too much when my Strama comes. (School and Work is sometimes hard to balance especially when you also have a lot of stuff on your plate too like me). So I’m not really rushing just taking my time and just doing the best I can.
