Why our Lakhambini shoes are priced the way they are

Several people have wondered why our LAKHAMBINI shoes are priced the way they are. But then I ask myself: why not that price range? If you only knew how much we value the process in which the material is made, up until the construction of the shoes (and how they're very comfortable when worn), then you'll know that owning a pair is truly worth every peso. :)

Amélie Hotel Manila celebrates Chinese New Year with Grand Opening

Amélie Hotel Manila, which is named after the owner's granddaughter, formally opened its doors last Thursday (February 19). The hotel's grand opening was celebrated during Chinese New Year; and it was indeed a great welcome to a new year that's filled with new beginnings. Now, the Art Deco inspired 70-room lodging, which is located in the old-world neighbourhood of Malate, is also surrounded by landmarks that are both rich in history and culture. It is also a short walk away from Robinson's Place Manila, a major shopping mall.

A world-class hotel in Laguna: Microtel, South Forbes

My best friend got married last December, and her wedding was held in St. Benedict Church by Ayala Westgrove Heights. Since it was a destination wedding, my family and I decided to stay in Laguna for the night to avoid the late drive back to Manila. 

Several factors came with looking for a proper accommodation, like the location for example. I, for one, needed a hotel that wasn't too far from the church or reception venue (Angelfields Nature Sanctuary). I also needed a nice lodging that would accommodate the needs of my family, especially with an 8-month old baby traveling with us. That's when I found Microtel, South Forbes. It was so perfect because not only was it 5 minutes away from the church, it was also a 30-minute drive to the reception venue.

This world-class Laguna hotel is located inside South Forbes, "a 500-acre, world-class township with residential, entertainment, academic, and sports components that encompasses the Metro Sta. Rosa-Silang-Tagaytay growth corridor". We loved that it was just minutes away from Nuvali Sta. Rosa, Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Tagaytay City and Laguna Technological Park.

Davao City: Daylight Inn - A no frills, value for money lodging

If given the extra funds when traveling, I would book a hotel where all my comforts will be met. So you can imagine how hesitant I was into booking a room at Daylight Inn, Davao. But since I was following a certain budget, and only needed a place to stay in for one night, I took my chances there. Surprisingly, I had a good experience. They even honored my reservation through text message. So that was a plus for me. By the way, this recount was from last year, January 2014 to be exact.

Anniversary-Worthy Hotel in Makati: Best Western, A.venue Suites

It has been more than a year since Rubel and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Best Western, A.venue Suites (December 2013). I would've blogged about it sooner. But time just got the best of me!
