Our Heart Keeps coming back to Marco Polo Ortigas

Marco Polo Ortigas is our hotel of choice for quick family staycations. 
Why brave the traffic and long drive,when you one can have all the rest and relaxation right inside the Metro?
So to celebrate our wedding anniversary we were again back at our favorite Ortigas Hotel ~ Marco Polo Ortigas.
We got a an upgraded Superior Suite Room with Continental Club benefits.
Our room is located on a high floor with a wonderful panoramic view of the Ortigas cityscape. 
The Continental Club benefits comes with luxury amenities. Breakfast, afternoon tea and night cocktails at the Club Lounge There is even butler service (though we did not get to try this one) We just loved the personalized check-in/check-out.

Christmas at Makati Shangri-La Hotel

A Sparkling White Christmas welcomed us at Makati Shangri-La Hotel, and my 8 years old was wide-eyed as he saw Santa Clause gamely pose with children and their parents for souvenir photos. 
With a huge grin on his face, our "bunsoy" personally approached the big man and requested for a picture.
I think, he whispered something to Santa, but I didn't quite hear what it was... 

Although there was an obvious volume of guests, check-in was a breeze.
Bryant the receptionist who attended to us was fast, efficient and cordial.  He informed us that there was an anticipated evening mass and invited us to join. It was pretty convenient as we don't need to rush out Christmas day to look for a church to celebrate mass.
We stayed in a deluxe room in a high floor. 
Our room has a King size bed and a couch.

Living a Rock Star Life at HardRock Resorts World Singapore

During our last Singapore-Malaysia holiday, we were again back at Sentosa. 
We love Sentosa, there are so many things to do and plenty of things to see...
We have previously stayed at the Festive Hotel and MovenPick Hotel (now Le Meridien Sentosa), this time we have decided to living large like Rock Stars!
I have always wanted to stay in a Hard Rock Hotel wondering what living large feels like. 
Here is a peek of Hard Rock Hotel:
The Grand hotel lobby.  Check in was a breeze, I spent no more than 5 minutes (I think) and the best part is we were upgraded.   

My boys busy catching Pokemons at the Hard Rock Hotel lobby. Unfortunately the wifi is not free.  We came prepared though and bought a local Singapore sim. 

We were treated to a very nice view of Hard Rock's beach inspired swimming pool.
Our welcome view...
Black leather sofa chairs were so stylish!
