Relax, Rejuvenate and Earn Cashback!

There seems to be a different tempo during summer. You can stay inside your jammies all day or plan a long trip with family and friends because summer means less traffic and no cramming because everyone including your kids are free for a trip anywhere you want. It truly is a season when nothing seems urgent. But, summer has ended! Are you the type who starts cancelling family get aways because travelling for long hours seems like a waste of time and effort, or are you just like us who take every opportunity to be together to make the most out of it? We’re the type who book hotels for the weekends just to be able to catch up. Spending quality time for us doesn’t always have to be out of the country or out of town. We love discovering hotels near our place.

I am so happy when my friend introduced Shopback to me. Did you know that booking a hotel can help you earn money for your next get away? Cool, isn’t it? Later, I’ll show you how you can sign-up to Shopback for FREE. But for now, check out our suggested Hotels near the Metro for your next get away.

Hotel Quickly Review

Have you booked a hotel room for Valentine’s Day yet? If you haven’t, I suggest that you try my now favorite Hotel app. HotelQuickly saved us time and money by offering dynamic deals at the best hotels in Asia-Pacific. Not only that, you can also earn points just by inviting friends to download the app and in return, they will be receiving credits that they can already use for their first booking.

I first tried booking a hotel last year because I was so frustrated that the hotel I was eyeing for my husband’s birthday (which is a holiday) was already fully booked. I was skeptical to use HotelQuickly at first and ended up booking the most affordable hotel room in Ortigas Center, Rio Suites.

My first booking experience was hassle-free and was lucky enough to book a room in an establishment where they value customers. Although the room was a bit small, it was cozy and neat.

I recommended HotelQuickly to my relatives and friends and was able to earn more points. Their feedback about their experience was good too. Last month, we were able to try out Privato Hotel for a whopping 85% off deal. I only paid less than Php900. See, you can stay in the hotel of your choice for free just by inviting your friends! You may want to check out this video to know more about earning credits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o33kkfH1DhA

They also send you surprises during special occasion. Just like the other day, I received an email from them for an additional discount in celebration of the Chinese New Year. They also give you a bigger discount if you are a frequent user of the app.

What are you waiting for? Download the app now and book a room for you and your loved one this weekend.

Don’t forget to use my code for additional Php600 credits! Download the app now and use my code: AALEJ6 or click this link to register https://www.hotelquickly.com/invite/AALEJ6/?utm_medium=sms&utm_source=mobile-app

Top 5 Reasons Why We Love Subic Bay Travelers Hotel

If you’re planning an R&R at Subic, you may consider booking a room at Subic Bay Travelers Hotel. If you’re wondering why, read on to know our top 5 reasons why we love and recommend this hotel.

photo from Subic Bay Travelers Hotel’s facebook page

1. The staff at Subic Bay Travelers Hotel know what customer service means. We never encountered even a single employee who isn’t carrying a big smile during our stay. We felt like we were VIPs. Their Tip Box tell so much about their service.

2. Subic Bay Traveler’s Hotel is SMOKE-FREE. We hate sheets or curtains that smells funky because of nicotine.

3. They serve good food. We’ve tried almost everything on their breakfast buffet and we left with happy tummies and empty plates. We also love the idea of eating breakfast by the pool side.

4. They are near restaurants and Duty Free shops! You can try out nearby restaurants if you feel like exploring and oh, you can walk from your hotel room towards Royal Duty Free and shop til you drop!
We recommend trying Hot Shots Burgers located right across the hotel.

5. Their rooms are spacious. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a room where you can move freely?

For bookings and inquiries please call (047) 252-1688

Christmas Tree Lighting at Richmonde Hotel Ortigas

We were invited to witness Richmonde Ortigas’ Christmas Tree lightning event last November 20, 2014. Unfortunately, Miguel wasn’t able to join me.

I have been to Richmonde Hotel at Eastwood City and aside from their bigger reception area and chandelier, nothing much differs them from the one in Ortigas when it comes to customer service.



Before the event started, we had a short hotel tour. I fell in love with their indoor pool and day dreamed of holding a private party. It’s also perfect for those who wish to swim but maintain their gluta-white skin.

Amongst the 3 rooms that we visited, I personally love their two-bedroom suite where guests can accept visitors and cook their own meals. Good for a whole family who’d love to experience the luxury living that Richmonde Hotel Ortigas offers.



Looking forward for some happy hour this sweater weather? 

Drink all the local beers, featured cocktail drinks, iced tea, or soda you can, with matching tasty bar chow to boot! Priced at only PhP 535nett per person.
Available Mondays to Fridays, except holidays, from 6pm to 9pm at The Exchange.
But make sure to make an early reservation specially during Fridays.

Are you a foodie?

Have a hearty and delectable kick-off to the weekend! Savor enticing offerings at the buffet spread at a very affordable PhP 695nett per person.
Served every Friday from 6pm to 9pm at the Richmonde Café. Children 6 to 12 years get 50% off and those 5 years old and below get to eat for free.


It was a quick yet worthy hotel tour. We headed back to the lounge for the much awaited Christmas tree lighting. We were even entertained by the hotel’s Executive Chef and shortly after, serenaded by one of their staff after the lighting activity which by the way was very lovely and quite exclusive since there were only six bloggers including myself who joined the hotel’s staff along with some of their guests.

Every dish that were served to us was good. But I kinda reserved my tummy’s space for the pastries.








I had tasted too many pastries that I could hardly recall which one is better that the other. The cinnamon donut, choco fudge and their chocolate cakes were my picks. Their Oreo Mint cake is yummy but I find it too minty like you just brushed your teeth.










Here’s a tip: Prices of all the yummy baked goodies at the Lobby Café are slashed 40% thirty (30) minutes before closing time.

Available Mondays to Fridays, from 6:30pm to 7pm; and Saturdays & Sundays, from 3:30pm to 4pm. First come, first served.

Richmonde Hotel Ortigas is located at 21 San Miguel Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City 1600 Metro Manila, Philippines
