Last March 23, my sister and I checked in at Bayview Park Hotel Manila to have a place to do hers and her friends’ hair and makeup prior to the event (prom). A night’s stay at Manila Hotel (actual venue of their prom) will cost us money, so we settled for Bayview instead. People from Twitter/Instagram thought I flew to Cebu already! But I just stayed the night at the hotel. Cebu’s not until the 31st of March.
At Bayview Park Hotel. You get what you pay for. I wasn’t really impressed by the staff (both those that were at the reception including the bellboys) Anyhoo, entrance of the hotel was okay. Nothing fancy, really.
Here are all our luggage. Got to use my suitcase for the first time, and as well as my new traincase!
We availed of the DeLuxe room: 1 single bed, 1 queen-sized bed, 1 bath, TV, dresser, minibar
Shell-shaped soap box
Cozy bed—I had the best sleep on this baby. First night without all the dogs around me
After doing the hair and makeup of my sisters and her friends and when they left for Manila Hotel, I drew myself a hot bath before cleaning up the room. It was a mess because all my stuff were scattered! It was a disaster area. I’ve never felt sooooo relaxed while in the tub. Scary thing was I could hear the opening and closing of the door of the room above ours and actually thought it was our door that opened. Freaked out for a while.
I watched Spongebob all night long! Good thing it was on marathon showing.
After cleaning up the room, I went downstairs to buy myself dinner. I went to Starbucks to get Java Chip and the cashier congratulated me for winning a free tall sized drink! It was so cool. A lot of things happen the least you expect them.
Watched the awesome BenjiManTV who took over ItsJudysLife!
Ready to go to bed but I had to wait for my sister because I am an awesome sibling. Hahaha!
So I decided to take Instagram photos starting with my traincase!!! 5 minutes later, my sister and her friends arrived! After more photo-taking, we called it a night. Although, I did watch American Dad till 2AM!
March 24, 2012—Good morning!!! This is the view that greeted me when I opened my eyes.
I showered and did my makeup and immediately started with my filming. I filmed my traincase video! The lighting and set up in our hotel room was perfect.
Watch the video here:
When I finished filming, my sister and I went downstairs to buy breakfast before checking out. We got ourselves drinks from Starbucks (I availed of my free drink) and headed to Yellow Cab for awesome food. I had this Ciabatta which is super awesome!!! I got soooo full I couldn’t finish it.
The first coffee jelly that ever disappointed me—all the flavor was down at the bottom. Something wasn’t right.
Here I am having a twice-baked potato half from Yellow Cab. Look how cheesy!
And my yummy ciabatta right here
It was definitely a fun night+day. We checked out right after having breakfast and was back home by 1PM.
