Crown Regency Hotel Makati

Crown Regency Makati

Convenient and Comfortable

Got a good hotel deal from Ensogo Philippines, BPI deal mania for a 3days 2nights Accommodation for 2 at selected Crown Regency hotel in the country, with breakfast for 2 for only Php5000, that's Php2500 for a night (crown regency makati rate: Php4000++). This was such a good deal and used this voucher at Crown Regency Makati. Since hotels around Makati area are bit pricey especially near the business center, having this deal from Ensogo has saved me a lot.
Crown Regency Hotel Makati is a chic hotel right in the heart of Makati. This hotel may not be as luxurious compared to other but this hotel has a very good location, its affordable, comfortable and service is good.
It's a four storey hotel with modern amenities and facilities.
This air-conditioned standard room is almost perfect for my short leisure stay in Manila. The room has 2 comfortable bed, complimentary water, in room complimentary wifi access, 21 inch cable television, refrigerator, coffee and tea maker, safety deposit box, hot and cold shower and toiletries. 

 Lobby Lounge
The Lobby Lounge is Crown Regency Makati restaurant which breakfast lies in here. Breakfast is in buffet with a wide range of typical breakfast dishes like sausages, corn beef, soup, bread, cereals and more. They also have a live cooking of egg, you may let them cook the way you wanted your egg to be cooked. It maybe scrambble, sunny side up or omelet. Your choice!
What I really like about this hotel is it location. Very accessible to the leading business, entertainment and commercial hub. A wide variety of transportation is available upon getting out of the hotel. Crown Regency Hotel Makita is just across the Park Square 1, a short walk to SM Makati, Ayala Malls such as Glorietta and Greenbelt. Very accessible and convenient.

Conti's Pastry Shop and Restaurant

Conti's Pastry Shop and Restaurant

Pre-Birthday Celebration

Since i'm in Manila, three days before my birthday, I decided to have a pre-birthday celebration with my sister and my beers friend (our term for best friend). Started my pre-birthday celebration at Conti's Pastry Shop and Restaurant at Serendra Branch, which I love it's location along Bonifacio Global City.
Conti's a home of culinary and a place to dine with family and friends. They have wide array of delectable dishes and desserts at affordable prices to choose from. If your craving for some comfort food and mouth watering cakes and pastries, Conti's is a good place to be. I've been here before and tried some of their yummy desserts and the famous pink salmon.
 
Here's what we have:

Conti's Baked Salmon
 This is Conti's famous dish and known for. Baked Norwegian pink salmon with creamy topping, 
served with buttered vegetable (corn and carrots) and yummy paella rice. Php355
I highly recommend this!

Bottomless Iced Tea
 Good for me, i'm a thirsty person Php85

Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce
Sliced of beef in mushroom sauce served with buttered vegetable (corn and carrots) 
and a choice of mashed potato or garlic rice. Php295
Very tender, tasty and juicy!

 Buffalo Wings
 Juicy chicken wings glazed with zesty tomato sauce served with cheese. Php195
Love it, soft and juicy!

Conti's is also know for it's yummy pastries and this can be shared for its huge slice. Since we were so full we didn't order any sweets. But they gave as a complimentary chocolate browny cake while waiting for our seats outside, on their waiting area. They really had a lot of costumers that's why we need to wait for a vacant seats but it didn't  took so long to wait. Worth it to wait.
Excellent Food and Service!
Best Value for your money!

Time to stroll along Serendra and Bonifacio High Street!

Packing List for a Short Leisure Trip


If your planning for a short leisure trip for about 3 days away from home make sure to pack stuff ahead and double check if everything you needed is in your luggage or bag. 

Most airline now a days are giving limited kilos of baggage per passenger and of course we don't want to pay some expensive excess baggage fees, so better pack light as much as possible. Honestly i'm not good in packing light.

Packing for a 3 days leisure trip may differs our list as we may have different purposes on how we spend it. Let me share to you my packing list for my 3 days leisure trip, this is packing light for me :)  and I always pack extra stuff.

As for my luggage i'm using a High Sierra Freewheel Backpack and this suit my stuff for 3 days.

Featured Guest Post:Try a Night at the London Palladium Theatre

Try a Night at the London Palladium Theatre

by Angelina Lawson

To make your trip to the United Kingdom extra special, try a night at the London Palladium Theatre! This London Theatre is thought to be the most famous theatre in the United Kingdom, due to its guest list of celebrities, great shows, and rich history.


This London Theatre got its starts in 1910. It has always been used for entertainment, not just theatre shows. It wasn’t until the 1940’s that big stars started performing on the stage. This eventually led to a long running TV show called the Sunday night at the London Palladium. It was such a great hit; it was brought back to TV during the 1980’s. Today you can see wonderful stage performances of all the top rated plays and musicals. 

You can purchase theatre tickets online. It helps to be familiar with the seating before buying. The London Palladium has the largest capacity of all London theatres, so it is easy to find a good seat. The 2,286 seats are spread over three levels called the Stalls, the Upper Circle, and the Royal Circle. The circular design of this London Theatre allows for great seats at any price range.


The Stalls is on the ground floor, closest to the stage. Theatre tickets in this section are more expensive, but they have the best view. Four wheelchair friendly spots are located in the Stalls.  In the Royal Circle the first few rows have the best views. The entire section allows you to get a panoramic view of the stage. This is a great for children, as they can see everything. The Upper Circle is the third level, and it is much cheaper. You are further from the stage, but the first few rows have some of the greatest views. There are several nice hotels close located nearby, like the Mermaid Suite hotel and the Holiday Inn, both within walking distance. Have dinner before the show at the Cape Town Fish Market or Silk. If you can’t manage a night at the London Palladium, try the Adelphi Theatre. Another one of London’s great theatres, it was originally built during the 1930’s. In 1993 it was completely restored with an art deco interior that reflects the original elegance of the theatre. Today it is host to numerous productions, many of which are Andrew Lloyd Weber’s, as he is part owner of the theatre.
