What happens when you squeeze 6 cam-whore bloggers in an elevator with mirrors? A selfie of epic proportions!
|holiday inn makati review|
Being able to stay at the heart of Makati was so convenient for us. We just walked everywhere...to our event, to have dinner, to buy beer and junk food, to have coffee, to shop for our new obssesion (new balance sneakers) everything was just so accessible and nearby.
As soon as our obligations for the day were done, we made a beeline for Oz Bar. I love Oz Bar because it is located by the pool at the roofdeck of Holiday Inn. It has a great view and makes you feel like your vacationing abroad. Beer is also reasonably priced. Less then P500 for 3 bottles of San Mig Light.
It is here that we chilled high school #throwback style with a classic game of spin the bottle and truth or dare while occasionally snapping photos of ourselves imitating Miley Cyrus's infamous tongue. Within a couple of hours, all my stress from the previous week was immediately erased. Nothing a great bonding experience with friends can't fix!

|We closed the bar and continued for some more at our headquarters...most of the time poking fun at Paul. Poor Paul. He puts up with so much crap from all of us. :P|
|And no vacation...or rather staycation, is complete without a "priceless" photo op. Channeling the crazy Spring Breakers at the hallways of Holiday Inn with Ana trying to do a handstand.|

We eventually turned in at around 4:30am only to be awakened at 8:00a.m. by our two "kids" Tracy and Tin eager to get downstairs for the breakfast buffet. Hungover, lacking sleep and still in pajamas, we all hesitantly trudged downstairs to the cafe.
Which I gotta admit was well worth the hassle. Thanks for being such persistent brats kiddos. If not for them, I would've missed out on all this goodness.

|The breakfast spread was more than generous catering to almost all of our wants. There was even a health food section complete with freshly juiced vegetables and fruits, perfect cure for my hangover!|

Coffee was fresh, strong and premium...always a prerequisite for me.

At the end of our stay, we all didn't want to leave. And it was weird cause it felt like we were in a different country when we stepped out of our hotel as if we came from a legit vacation abroad.

Whatever your intentions may be, wether it be a relaxing weekend away with the family or a night of fun debauchery with friends, I highly recommend making Staycations a part of your yealy bucket list. It's a great way to recharge and get away from all the stress of everyday life. I plan to do this all over again with the same bunch and another time with just Dennis and a different time with Dennis and Nikola.
