Staycation: The Bellevue Manila

Today is first day of August and few weeks from now I’ll be celebrating my birthday but no definite plans yet. This reminds me that I haven’t posted my hubbby’s birthday celebration last June. Hehehe! We had staycation in The Bellevue Hotel before the first day of school, oh yes, huling hirit ng summer vacation. 



Last summer, I was checking for different resort where we could celebrate his birthday but we had home improvement last May and there was unexpected tuition increase so we decided to have simple celebration instead. But God is so good, a week before his birthday he received a reward from his company, “overnight stay in any hotel worth P5000”. 



I immediately search for hotels where we could spend his birthday. We both decided to stay in any hotels in Alabang area para malapit lang and we chose The Bellevue Manila. We booked the cheapest room which is De Luxe Room for P5,500, there was no promo on the date that we reserved. Sayang hindi umabot sa Father’s Day promo. 

Sharing to you photos of the room. We stayed in the Main Wing where rooms are not yet improved. Just ask them if you want to stay in new rooms but of course the rate is not the same.









After staying in the room for two hours, we went to Vue Bar to get our welcome drinks and swim too. 





Then we went to Pastry Corner to buy cake and ensaymada, good thing they have small cake. I love their ensaymada, sulit for P65. The Truffle Cake P150 was gone in 60 seconds. lol 




Happy Birthday!
My favorite part of staycation is buffet breakfast, we had breakfast at Café d’Asie. Good thing my son is still free or else lugi na naman. (6 yrs old below) 



My plate
We enjoyed our staycation and I told my husband na next time galingan niya ulit para may free hotel ulit kami sa birthday ko. #pressure

Like 

1.Service is good. 
2.We don’t have bath tub at home so we really like if the bathroom has a tub.
3.Bidet and phone beside the toilet is available. 
4.Swimming pool is big.
5.Free Wifi 

Dislike 

1.At that time there was an ongoing construction beside the hotel so we were not able to use this pool. Sayang mas type namin ito.

Buffalo’s Wings N things

I always see Buffalo’s Wings N Things restaurant in Nuvali but I haven’t tried it yet. I received a text last July 25 that Munchpunch team sent me a eGift Card for Buffalo’s Wings N Things. I was glad because I know I have reason to go to Nuvali again. 


We went to fish feeding area first because it is my son’s favorite activity in Nuvali, bought chocolate cake in Contis and went straight to Buffalo’s Wings N Things restaurant. I showed the text to the staff and she has no idea about it so she went to her supervisor to show the text, She came back informing me that they do not accept eGift card because franchise lang daw yung restaurant. Waah! 


We did not leave the restaurant anymore so we ordered Garlic Parmesan + Fries P149 + 29 and Grilled BBQ Chops P249. Every table you can see pack of tissue paper because you can enjoy eating the chicken without the utensils but don’t worry, they have spoon, fork and knife. 

1 pound for 149 (promo that day)

Choice of rice or mashed potato
We all enjoyed our order, you can really taste the garlic and parmesan in the chicken and the BBQ chops is so tender and flavorful. I could say that the price is not expensive. There are more flavors of the chicken from mild to spicy and we ordered the mildest which is Garlic Parmesan.

Nutrition Month 2014

Every day my usual routine is to check my son’s assignment notebook once he gets home. Then last Wednesday I saw the reminder that he needs to bring headdress made of real fruits and vegetables on Friday. Waah! I only have two days to make headdress. 

If you’ve been a regular reader of this blog, you know for sure that I’m not fond of vegetables so obviously we don’t have stock of leafy veggies in our fridge. I do eat vegetables but not really my favorite. Since I have no idea how to make headdress, I checked Google but unfortunately I only saw three pictures of headdress made of real vegetables.



I’ve been talking to my friend and she suggested monggo, fortunately we have monggo in our house. And because I’m too lazy to go out in the house just to buy native hat, I used cardboard instead. Cardboard from bedsheets, hehehe!



I started putting monggo on the cardboard part by part. The process looks so easy but you need patience on this project. I need to make sure that the glue and monggo will stay in its place and I have to wait for the glue to dry so it took me two days to do this. 




I planned to put malunggay leaves pero mukha na siya lanta how much more sa Friday so we painted the remaining space, printed fruit and veggies and paste it on the middle. 




My son was happy with his headdress and honestly siya lang ang nakita ko na monggo sa school. Hehehe! Most of the students in preschool used sitaw, malunggay, calamansi, cabbage, banana, bell pepper, carrots and eggplant.
