Blogkada staycation

Friday, September 13, 2013 —
5 girls + 1 boy?! So what happened at our blog barkada's #makatistaycation weekend in Holiday Inn Makati? 
Tired. Stressed. Burnout. Tin, Pax, Sarah, Ana, Paul, and I were feeling those whenever we'd all meet up and talk about our work and life in general. We'd always plan out of town/ out of the country trips but because of our busy schedules, we can't seem to make it happen.



Luckily, we had the opportunity to do a blog barkada staycation in Holiday Inn Makati. Parang lightbulb moment talaga because oonga noh? Why not check-in sa hotel, stay sa room, and bond like there's no tomorrow? Away from reality ang peg namin last weekend. We created our own little world in the heart of Makati.

Really a sucker for personalized ANYTHING. Basta I'm cheesy like that. Nice one, Holiday Inn Makati ;)


Say hello to room 825!


Tin was my roomie! :)

My SM Parisian bags :) Feeling magaabroad sa dami ng dala ko. HAHA.




Went to the roofdeck to check out the gym. Hahaha hashtag fitness addict :P


... and the pool!
My new havaianas IPE :) Thank you :*


The ultimate concrete jungle: Makati!


Relaxation weekend starts... NOW.

Instax time with these fools while waiting for Pax! :)


Finally dumating si Pax! Ate dinner in Wee Nam Kee na nasa baba lang ng Holiday Inn Makati. The hotel is located beside Glorietta 2 so sobrang convenient :)
After dinner, I went to the hotel's gym to workout. This is my "ME time." Sure, a staycation is technically a vacation pero tuloy parin ang workout... HAHAHA. Plus I ate a lot nun dinner eh. Lol


Their gym closes at 10pm. So I went back to the room, took a bath, then bonding/ TV time na with my roomie Tin! :) After an hour of talking, assembly time na sa room nila Paul and Sarah AKA the chamber of secrets. Nyahahaha.

Bonding to the max. Everytime naaalala ko yun talks namin, natatawa ako!! Sobrang ewan. We all wanted to walk around so we went up sa roofdeck for more tambay realness. Hehe


They have a bar at the roofdeck. Sobrang ok cos they close at 2am pa. Tinodo namin yun chikahan dun. Majority (aka them except me) drank till they almost dropped. Nakita dito kung sino ang matibay sa inuman. HAHAHA.

I didn't drink cos baduy ako. LOL. I was really in the mood for milk. I'm the baby in the barkada... eh. Hahaha. Actually, sa totoo lang, ayoko uminom cos I had a goal to take photos/videos of the drunkies nun night na yun. I really love being sober. HAHA. Namamaximize ko yun memories... whut. Labo?! Basta yun na yun.



Sabog faces. Shempre I was the ultimate phone ninja and hacked their instagram accounts. So sa mga nagffollow samin nun, sorry sa pag flood ng timeline niyo. Nag enjoy ako i-document yun pagkalasing nila. Epic hahahaha! Si Paul maaga natulog (boo) so wala siya mashado sa sabaw photos hehe


The next day, before we went here sa buffet area, walang photo but Tin and I became human alarm clocks. Struggle talaga mang gising ng mga taong may hangover (cough ana pax sarah cough). Paul was already ironing his clothes pag punta namin sa room nila. WHAT IS MASIPAG?! Hahaha!!
Breakfast time!

SO MUCH FOOD. Nakakaoverwhelm. I really love breakfast buffets!



Morning OOTD. No shame, no shame. And this is how a hipster stretches. HAHAHA. May peace sign pa eh. Hay. Sorry. I'm so weird??!!! Lmao


My minimalist / pang-OC / nagddiet breakfast. Hindi ko na maximize yun buffet :( So sad. I felt so full after finishing these eh. Toink!

Balik sa room to pack. I felt emo because I didn't want our staycation to end. Na capture ni Tin yun pagm-moment ko sa may window. Nyahaha

Went down to the lobby to checkout :(
Super fun weekend, roomie!!!

I swear I'm IN LOVE with my blog barkada. I think after this staycation, naging stronger yun bonds namin kasi wala kaming choice kung hindi mag usap sa room eh. HAHAHA JOKE LANG. But seriously. Retreat levels yun staycation.
With my mama weirdo and weirdo friend. Twins daw sila eh. Sige... pagbigyan!!


Thank you so much Holiday Inn MAKATI for a memorable staycation! I recommend this #makatistaycation thingamajig to all the barkadas (fine mag-jowas narin) out there. Lakas maka goodvibes! Hindi niyo na kailangan ma-hassle sa pagayos ng itinerary cos ang lapit lang ng Makati plus maraming magagawa sa hotel na pang ultimate bonding session (swim, drink, eat, chill with friends etc)

Saan kaya next hotel weekend namin ng blogkada? Fairmont, Raffles, Manila Peninsula, Makati Shangri-La, Dusit Hotel, or Intercon? Hmmm... 

Till our next #makatistaycation! Toodles xx
