This hotel was a bit of an improvement over Tune Hotel. The room is a bit larger. But, at more than 4x the price, I was left wondering what the appeal happened to be. One thing the hotel did have is a nice hot shower. Aside from that, the service and food was just bad. If you are in Makati, stay at the Tune hotel instead. A little smaller but much better value!

In one day alone we managed to pack around 230 family parcels which was a lot I would say, we just kept going and going and I felt like I was doing something finally worthwhile to help the disaster and was pleased to do so. Unfortunately the couple of volunteer places I had been in touch with could no longer accommodate my services which ...

Despite waking up at 3, 4 and 5am, I had more energy throughout the day than I thought I would have... Let's be honest, I was probably was going off of mostly adrenaline as soon as I saw all my family. Around 7, ...

Our night ended at the Mall of Asia. This was after a frustrating taxi ride where we were scammed out of 100 pesos. But, what you gonna do? They had a fireworks show along the bay and that was fun to watch. Originally we were looking at seeing yet another movie, but the only show times were far too late and we had promised David we would go out with him that night. So ...
