Hotel Felicidad, Our Vigan Home!

Vigan brought back memories of my high school days' El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere classes ~ the old Hispanic buildings, the cobbled stone road and the kalesa ride perfected the moment.
A Hotel Felicidad stay was an obvious decision for our family expedition in vintage Vigan city. 
The hotel is newly built and boasts huge classic Principalia themed rooms.
It is located right in the heart of Vigan City and is just a few steps away Vigan's famous Calle Crisologo.

We booked a deluxe room, with a queen size and  a single poster beds.  I must warn you  that the beds are quite high - not good for kids who roll and toss over in their sleep.

We had to join the two beds together to sleep my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) comfortably. That plus, I wouldn't want one of boys falling over.

The room has a window that opens to a road below.  Could be a little noisy for light sleepers.

Big and sturdy wooden furniture eating up all those spaces. 

The hotel is quite generous with toiletries. I liked their soap a lot, I brought the left over home.
We love the room, but for a 4 star hotel they don't have a refrigerator nor a coffee maker inside the room (You can, however, request for cold water from any of the hotel's staff anytime.  Coffee also runs free for a particular time of the day at the hotels dining area.   Still a in-room refrigerator, would have been a whole lot more convenient, especially for those travelling with kids).
Breakfast came free with the room accommodation. Choices were limited and preparation quite poor compared to other hotels we have stayed in.  Don't expect too much, so as not to disappoint yourself. If  you are not satisfied, you can always take a stroll to one of the restaurants along Calle Crisogo.

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.


Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.

Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Family Swimming Getaway Near the Metro ~ Cattleya Resorts Antipolo

I was the designated scout for a recent family swimming getaway. The task was simple enough:  Find an affordable, clean private pool venue for a 20+ persons, near the Metro (with no more than 30 minutes to 1 hour travel)... GOODLUCK ME!   So where do I find one? We are from Taytay and my bets are private pool rentals in Tanay and Antipolo.    Our search led us to Cattleya Resorts in Antipolo, just 30 minutes away from where we live. Cattleya Resorts as of writing is made up of nine (9) private rental pools. Rental price range from P4500 to P12000 for day (9am-5pm)use and P5500 to P14000 for a night (7pm-7am) use.  Corazon - day P12000 / night P14000 Isabel - day P10000 / night P12000 Cristina- day P7000 / night P9000 Dominique- day P10000 / night P12000 Maricor- day P8000 / night P10000 Catherine- day P7000 / night P9000 Arabella- day P7000 / night P9000 Patricia- day P4500 / night P5500 Imelda- day P4500 / night P5500 Pools 1 to 7 are good for 50 persons, while pools 8 and 9 are good for 12 person…
