HOTEL REVIEW: Our MICROTEL (Mall of Asia) staycation booked via the TRAVELOKA App

If there's a specific hotel chain in the Philippines that I keep coming back to, it would be Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham. I've always enjoyed my time with them because whichever property I’m staying in, I’m sure to get the best from them. I just love their distinct taste when it comes to the design of their rooms and facilities, as the decor is very consistent in terms of style and arrangement. I also love Microtel's hotel staff (from the front desk to housekeeping), as they always provide a pleasant customer experience.

I was supposed to leave for a quick trip abroad. So I booked Microtel, Mall of Asia, as it was just a short drive to NAIA 3. I was able to get a nice deal for this specific hotel at Traveloka, as they offered room rates that were more affordable compared to my usual go-to booking sites. With Traveloka, I was assured that there would be no hidden charges (no more surprises upon checkout), which was a good thing. Anyhow, here's how my booking went:

How To Renew Philippine Passport Using Married Name

One of the things that I gave priority to after getting married was my passport renewal. It was actually timely for a name change too, as my passport was about to expire in a few months (September 2016). I also decided to take on my husband's name, by choice of course, because (1) I've long wanted to carry his surname, and (2) having the same last name would help identify my husband and I as one family unit (i.e. easier endorsements when it comes to applying for visas, opening joint bank accounts, making loans). 

Moving forward... if you happen to be newly married like me (married just last year!), or already married but haven't gotten the chance to change your last name on your passport yet, you can just refer to our infographic. Please note that the one I made is more applicable for Filipinas who are married to a local as well. The requirements and documents may still differ when it comes to your application type (i.e. for spouse of foreign national who would change their civil status from single to married, for married women who would like to revert to their maiden name).

TIPS WHEN SETTING AN APPOINTMENT

It was July of last year when I got my scheduled appointment online. I still didn't have a copy of our Marriage Contract at the time (the one printed on PSA Security Paper), but I still chose to book in advance despite the odds. Of course, I made a back up plan in

It’s about time you stay at KL Tower Serviced Residences in Makati

My husband flew in two weeks ago to celebrate his birthday in Manila. So I made sure that all of his requests were fulfilled during his short 3-day vacation. From satisfying his food cravings to getting his requested spa treatments, Rubel returned abroad with a full and gracious heart. He felt revitalized, and was ready to go back to work. But out of all of our plans, he enjoyed our staycation in KL Tower Serviced Residences the most (also known as the Kalaw-Ledesma Tower). He was beyond ecstatic when I told him that we were staying in a One Bedroom Loft.
