Playing Tourist in the City

Post Content

Last March I gifted my B with Polaroid coupons and a hotel getaway is one of them. And since I recently quit my day job (more on that story soon), a hotel getaway sounds even more enticing.

Question: So what’s a girl to do after her last day at work?
Answer: Celebrate freedom!!! I invited my B, packed my bags, my curiosity and adventurousness and explored the city.

My favorite part of staying at a nice hotel is their buffet breakfast — this time we are eating at HEAT restaurant.

Our little escape offered me to play tourist, even just for a day. I feel sparkling again!

Morning time. I had the most peaceful, sweetest sleep in days. Now it’s time to indulge in the buffet breakfast included in our package. Sweet!

Brian was invited to be the photographer for his friend’s mom’s 60th birthday in Pampanga for June 27th. Since it’s on the weekend, it’s more likely that I will be with him. We planned to go there a day earlier and have our post-monthly celebration. A hotel accommodation is a must since the main event falls on a Sunday. I barely knew any hotel in the area aside from the old villas for rent and old hotels.

Lucky enough while I was googling, I found a new hotel and vacation club right smack in the middle of Clark Freeport Zone.

Brian and I can probably join the next Amazing Race challenge since we’ve been practicing rushing and turbo-ing (our own lil term) each and every time we will go out. We love it like that. Kidding! We are just two slow-moving creatures and always rushing to make our way to whatever event on time (or at least we try to but mostly we are late). Just like today. We planned to hop on the bus for their 11am schedule but we needed to grab some stuff in the groceries first.

One of the bus lines that goes to Pampanga daily is Partas Bus Lines. After picking up some stuff, we went to their Aurora, Cubao terminal and got the 11:30am schedule. Phew! That was a lot of rushing this early morning. I told you we can totally join the Amazing Race!
