Solaire Membership Information Front

Did you know that Solaire Resort and Casino will upgrade your existing Resorts World Manila Membership Card if you become a member? Read On…

Club Punta Fuego Rooms 01

Here’s a look inside the infamous Casitas of Club Punta Fuego in Nasugbu Batangas. We were here for a team building a few months back and I must say – There will be Peace and Quiet! To be honest I am not familiar with booking procedure since the company booked it for us, however please be mindful that Club Punta Fuego is an Exclusive to members facility and they only give special access via special channels… those special channels, I have no idea what they are. :)

“Club Punta Fuego is a membership club. Individual travelers may go through selected channels should they wish to be accommodated at the club. Privileges however are limited and restricted for non-members. For more information, you may call Fuego Hotels at (02) 5538888.”

Now, one of the most sought after room in the club is their Casitas. It is a villa type individually detached rooms with your own private veranda, a spacious bedroom and a super spacious open type shower with a mini garden. The rooms were not as luxurious as you would imagine but it is complete with all the amenities that you will need for a resort living and is spacious enough to fit a family of 4. Wi-Fi is out of the picture, there is no Wi-Fi inside the room and the cellphone signal is intermittent for both networks (Globe and Smart). This is a place for relaxation and serenity: Working and being constantly online is out of the picture. There are also adjoining casitas which is perfect if you are coming in big groups.

Now as promised, here’s a Photo tour of Club Punta Fuego’s Casitas.

Awesome Breakfast Buffet at Holiday Inn Manila Galleria

Holiday Inn Galleria Fab Breakfast Buffet 02

As mentioned in my previous review of Holiday Inn Manila Galleria, I really enjoyed their breakfast buffet spread. Breakfast is severed daily at their Fab Restaurant on the 4th Floor. Unlike most parts of the hotel, this restaurant feels more updated, contemporary and the ambiance is more lively and upbeat. The lighting was excellent and the layout and design was really good. A great way to start your day.

Holiday Inn Manila Galleria’s Buffet Spread is Amazing. It is complete with all that you’ll need for a great breakfast. They even serve Taho!! This is the first time that I encountered a hotel breakfast which serves Taho!! :) They also serve danggit! I love danggit!! :)

A Sneak Peek Inside Korean Air’s Lounge in NAIA 1


Korean Air Lounge NAIA 01

Flying business or first class really has its perks. One of it is the lounge service. Although not all airlines have their own lounge facility on every airport, some share a common lounge and some share lounges with their airline partners. As for Korean Air, they have their own lounge here in Manila inside the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 (NAIA 1). Their Manila lounge is very simple and very small compared to their Lavish Lounge inside Incheon International Airport. But you still get the convenience of waiting in your own private area with free food and all other stuff you need for a convenient travel.

The Worst Hotel Room That I Have Ever Been To!

Great Eastern Hotel Makati 01

Oh my, should I have been more subtle? I’m sorry but I just can’t find the right words to phrase it and soften the blow. I know I could encounter something worse in the future but by far, this is probably the most hideous hotel room that I have ever been to. The good thing was, I did not stay the night in this room. We were just invited there by our foreigner friend to hang out. He was the unlucky one! So Sad!

My Friend was visiting Manila and he was looking for a cheap room. We found this one in Agoda. The price was within budget, the photos were presentable, and the location was pwefect so basically it looks like a good deal.  We know that the price was cheap but oh boy, he was in for a big surprise.

Conquerors Boxing

I am fortunate enough to have a job which allows me to work from home most days of the week. Working from home means.. waking up, logging in to your computer, working, then sleeping! The downside? Very minimal physical activity involved and lots of access to the fridge. It sounds very ideal to some people but you can just imagine the effect of that on your health and weight. Because of this I tried exercising once in a while. I tried joining fun runs but me being not a morning person makes it really hard to wake up early in the morning. I also tried going to the gym but the treadmill and stationary equipment bore me and I don’t like weights. I tried badminton but I need regular playmates sharing the same schedule as me. All seems to fail but one day, a friend of mine posted a photo of him boxing on Facebook. I asked where it was and it turns our it was just near our village! This is it! I have always been curious about boxing but I the number of gyms are limited.

I Immediately looked them up on Facebook and messaged the owner Jo Tomas for the details, the rates, and the gears I need to start training. And in no time I was started training at Conqueror’s Boxing Gym. OH, this place is not only for boxing, they also teach Muay Thai! Cool!

Is the Country's Tallest Ferris Wheel a Let Down?


Tagaytay Sky Ranch 11

I was really excited upon hearing the news that the tallest Ferris wheel is already open in Sky Ranch Tagaytay City. I immediately invited my friends to visit Tagaytay and try it out. So one week after the opening date, we headed to Tagaytay City. This tallest Ferris wheel is located Beside Taal Vista Hotel inside SM Land’s Sky Ranch which houses the Sky Fun Amusement Park which operates the Wheel. Upon reaching the “Amusement Park” I immediately noticed that the place was still under construction in fact, there were ongoing construction on some areas. The parking area was not yet that fully operational but we managed to find a spot. Now the fun begins… By the way, even though the parking area is not yet fully operational you still have to pay 50 pesos to park.

Anyway moving on.. The adventure begins! :)

Free Shuttle Services from Solaire Resort and Casino


No Car? No Problem! Solaire Resort (Just Like RWM) offers free shuttle service to everyone who wants to visit their Resort. Shuttles leave every 15 minutes from Mall of Asia (MOA) and every 1 hour from 1188 Mall Binondo, Rockwell Power Plant Mall, and Greenbelt 3 Makati. At the moment these 4 are the only pick up points. I am sure that there will be more soon.

Manang’s Chicken, known for their crispy-licious, juicy-licious, finger-licking good and surely Sarap to the bones soy garlic chicken has gone a long way since I last reviewed them 2 years ago. Before, they were just serving their Double Deep Fried chicken in Weekend Food Markets but now, they are slowly but surely becoming one of the most sought after fast food chain in Manila. Now, no need to wait for the weekend, you can enjoy their delicious chicken by just visiting one of their 12 branches.

Yes, there is a Dress Code in Solaire Resort and Casino


Planning on attending the most anticipated, ultra amazing, highly publicized and uber expensive Grand Opening of Solaire Resort and Casino Later? Then you better check this out first before heading out to the crowd. Apparently, there is a dress code in the resort. If you are used to roaming around Resorts World Manila and getting away with your ultra casual shorts and flip flops then you better think again… it turns out, may have to dress up a little for Solaire.

Solaire Resort and Casino Dress Code

Plese take note of Solaire Resort and Casino’s Dress Code:

GIRLS | LADIES | WOMEN: You may wear..

  • Skirts
  • Pants
  • Slacks
  • Trousers
  • Leggings
  • Pant Jumpsuits
  • Dresses
  • Tubes
  • Halter
  • Spaghetti Straps
  • Sleeveless
  • Collared
  • Venus Cut
  • Turtle Neck
  • Boat Neck
  • V-Cut
  • Round Neck
  • Cowl Neck
  • Suits
  • Filipiniana
  • Jackets
  • Blazers
  • Coats
  • Cardigans
  • Shawls
  • Sandals with heels and straps
  • Heels
  • Pumps
  • Stilettos
  • Closed Shoes
  • Ballet Flats
  • Dressy Flats Boots

BOYS | GENTLEMEN | MEN: You may wear..

  • Suits
  • Button Downs
  • Polos
  • Collared Shirts
  • Long Sleeve Shirts
  • Jackets
  • Blazers
  • Coats
  • Denim Pants
  • Slacks
  • Khaki Pants
  • Trousers
  • Leather Shoes
  • Laced Shoes
  • Sneakers
  • Loafers
  • Closed Shoes (I Guess Sanuk is covered here, but hey, they are not shoes, they are sandals, also Rubber Shoes I think are allowed… we’ll see)

Well, there is always this rule that it is better to be overdressed than to be underdressed right?

I am not at all surprised about this. I think this is very appropriate and necessary to keep up with the level luxury that Solaire Resort and Casino has to offer. Everyone must dress to impress and be presentable! So to those guys who love wearing shorts and round neck tees on weekends… better bring or store an extra “Casino Clothes” in your car’s trunk just in case you suddenly decided to drop by Solaire.

Truly, the game is about to change… starting with your get-up! :)

[UPDATE] I was there yesterday (24 March 2013) and I saw a lot of men wearing shorts, sanuk, and even crocs. I saw them walking around the restaurants but not inside the casino. I am not sure how this dress code works really.

Hanggang sa muli, Paalam!

LG Optimus G: Thoughts of a Non-Tech Blogger


LG Optimus G

Last week, I was invited for the country launch of the newest Flagship Smartphone from LG – the LG Optimus G. This gorgeous phone is poised to compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S3/S4, iPhone 5, and Sony Experia Z. I won’t dig in into the technical stuff but here are some of the striking features of this phone:

The Processor: The LG Optimus G uses the newest, superfast, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad-Core Processer. Not only this delivers near-pc speeds but it also provides better energy consumption and amazing graphics processing.

The Display: The LG Optimus G sports a beautiful 4.7-inch WXGA True HD IPS Plus Display with 320ppi high pixel density (1280x768 pixels) and Stripe RGB IPS Panel with 15:9 aspect ratio, showing natural and life-like images; the Zerogap Touch offers the slimmest panel display without diffused reflection for clearer and sharper visibility.

Better Battery Life: LG Developed a slimmer yet more longer lasting battery for the Optimus G. Less trips to the sockets and more time to be productive.

Camera: LG Optimus is equipped with a 13MP Ultra high-resolution and ultra slim camera.

LTE: It is now supported by both Globe and Smart. I already saw some LTE Speed tests on twitter.

Enhanced User Interface: LG Optimus G introduced its proprietary Q-Slide and Quick Memo features which allows users to multitask without closing or minimizing apps to the background. Q-slide allows transparency and overlap between applications for better multi-tasking. To better understand these features, watch the video below:

Alpenliebe: My New Favorite Dessert Candy!


Pronounced as: Al-pen-lee-beh… Again… Al-pen-lee-beh… Perfect!

Alpenliebe Outdoor Sticker

Alpenliebe is the newest addition to the superb list of confectionery products from Perfetti Van Melle - the makers of your favorite Mentos, Chupa Chups, Smint and Fruitella. It comes in 2 super rich and flavorful variants, Strawberry and Caramel. Alpenliebe is sold in bags containing 50 individually wrapped candies for around P26 pesos.

Alpenliebe Candy 2

Alpenliebe Candy 1

Last week, someone delivered a bucket (literally) of this delicious candies to our house and I was immediately hooked. I personally love the caramel flavor, it reminds me a lot of Werther's Candy and our very own XO caramel candy but this one is definitely much better than XO and much more accessible and cheaper than Werther’s. I love how smooth it is and the creamy caramel flavor was just bursting in your mouth. I love these types of candies, I call it dessert candies because if there are no desserts available immediately after a quick meal, these candies are my go to dessert option.

A Mysterious Hotel Housekeeping Item: The “Reveal Cream”


Be careful what you do inside your hotel room, it may get revealed upon check out! :p

I was browsing through my pictures and I came across this one. It is a mysterious housekeeping stuff that I saw in one of the housekeeping cart of a 5-star hotel hotel in Manila alongside the typical cleaning paraphernalia.

The Reveal Cream

The Reveal Cream

The stuff was enticingly named “Reveal Creme”. A cream that I suppose is used for housekeeping and room cleaning purposes. I tried googling this item but there was nothing on the web about it. Maybe it is called differently in other hotels. It is still a mystery what this cream is for but at the back of my mind I was thinking "reveal cream = black light? Hahahahaha! I must be terribly wrong on this assumption! :p

What do you think this is? I may have to ask my friends from the industry, they might be more familiar! :) If you found the answer, please let me know!

[UPDATE] Just got a word from the Hotel where I got the photo. It’s not what I think! Hahahaha!

“Regarding your question on the Reveal Crème, it is a polishing cream that our housekeeping attendants use to clean pieces of furniture in guests rooms. This helps make it spic and span, thus, revealing its natural beauty and shine. ;)”

Hanggang sa muli, Paalam!

My Indoor Skydiving Adventure at Genting Highlands Malaysia


Genting Sky Venture Malaysia
Level T2A, First World Plaza, Genting Highlands Theme Park
Phone: (603) 6105 9011

Genting Indoor Skydiving

This was the main reason why I visited Kuala Lumpur Malaysia late last year. I was watching TV and I saw this indoor skydiving simulation thingy and I got super excited. Just like bungee Jumping,  I would probably never get the chance to do the real stuff (or I don’t have the guts to do it) so I said I should at least try the next best thing – the Indoor Skydiving.
