Staying in hotels reminds me of Cinderella.
Check in time is usually 3PM: You will be treated like a VIP, a made up room to your liking, amenities that you are looking forward to try, food that will make you guilty as hell BUT when the clock strikes 12PM on your next day, you have to say goodbye to that kind of life cause it’s the standard check out time.
This is a list of hotels in the Philippines that I support and I recommend for your momentary Cinderella experience. 💎
Tattoos and piercings do not only entail self-expression. Body modification has been around for centuries, originating from tribes. It’s the tribalistic nature that cultivates a new contemporary niche. The new tribe brings together people with body modifications, often discernible when a modified person instantly feels a slight connection with another. Wanna be part of the tribe? Check these places out and get your very own mark.
As the song from Hotdog goes: “I keep coming back to Manila / Manila, I’m coming home”. I know that just thought of going to Manila can already feel like a drab. But despite all the unwarranted stress that comes with Manila, there are a few places in this city that gets me to come back for more.
After a bit of rain in the morning, I love walking around in different areas around the quainter parts of the city. I find town too commercialised, but there are such nice little spots cropping up all over, as the “sea turtles” (people who study abroad and bring ideas back) make their way home.
The slower relaxed ambience of retirees and quiet helps me take a deep breath and relax. That sense of peace that washes over me is intoxicating and I need more days like that. Happiness. Like this cat.
