P_20171003_084943

 

Looking for a place to stay in Tagaytay? As a top destination particularly among weekend warriors, Tagaytay is home to plenty of hotels and accommodations from private rooms to boutique hotels. If you are right in the middle, that is, looking for a mid-range hotels with the perfect rates for you and ample amenities, One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites is a good choice.




Big thanks to Air Asia Philippines for bringing me together with fellow Iloilo and Bacolod media for the inaugural fight.

P_20171001_193010_BF

 

Lobby and Checking in

We arrived late at night in Tagaytay and it was nice to arrive in a homey lobby. Homey and not intimidating that you can just drop your big bottom on their oversized sofa while checking-in. Their lobby also has plenty of Instagrammable spots.

P_20171003_081049_HDR

 

Fast check-in. Front desk officers and staff are all attentive and cheerful throughout our stay.

Our room

Can’t help but think that my boys will surely love the towel folding. Rooms have enough space, with fridge and plenty of places for me to scatter my things. haha! They don’t have a hair dryer but just one call to the front desk and they sent it right away. Wi-fi was fast, great for us who continuously updating our social media throughout the trip.

We had a short tour around the hotel, checking different rooms. For those who love to indulge and some privacy, One Tagaytay has suite rooms that can house 4-6 guests including a penthouse suite.

One Tagaytay Place’s Amacena

P_20171003_081120_HDR

Dining at Amacena, I can say it is one of the hotel’s top assets. It is cozy with rich wood interior  and elegant tablewares  -it’s like dining in your rich Tita’s house. haha.  Seriously, the food was great. Gong beyond the usual Bulalo, Amacena served this. Oh la la!

Staff were also patient to our group. Plus, they serve us regional dishes for us Visayan guests to enjoy.  When you’re a blogger, it’s hard to miss their food presentation and other details.

I'm loving the presentation of @amacenatagaytay's kinilaw. #kinilaw #rawfood #ceviche #foodie #tagaytay #tagaytayrestaurants #amacena

Breakfast at Amacena. Writing this makes me miss their homemade corned beef. I love their wooden bowls and wood charger plates.

Location

P_20171003_080635

 

Another thing that I like about One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites is their location. I’ve been to Tagaytay twice and so far, I like how it is located a little bit on the other side of where most touristy areas are. I urged by fellow Iloilo bloggers for a morning walk to enjoy Tagaytay’s cool weather and it was a nice experience to observe local life.

 




We passed by schools, churches and the popular Tagaytay Picnic Grove. One of my best moments to see Taal Lake early morning before tourists start coming and to enjoy a morning walk  – thanks to the One Tagaytay’s location.

As I often travel with my family, I find it nice that this hotel in Tagaytay has a 7-Eleven store in front along with ATM Machines. If you travel a lot with kids, you know these stores are great help for parents.

Other facilities

For a mid-range hotel, One Place Tagaytay Hotel & Suites provide amenities and facilities at par to those of luxury hotels. They have a lot of function rooms from small groups to big banquets. Again, speaking of kids, they have a rooftop pool that includes a kiddie pool.

I was surprised how big and spacious their spa is! Sorry for the dark image. Needless to say, I like how much space they allot for their guests’ relaxing spa experience. After a day of exploring Tagaytay, would it be nice to knead those tired muscles with a good massage?

Family-friendly with all the right amenities, stay at One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites for your next Tagaytay trip!

Holidays with SM Home

PHOTO1-1

We all love to go big on our Christmas decor and I think we don’t care if we go too far. After all, Philippines has the longest Christmas in the world. Our Christmas season may start on September, but I personally prefer to put up my Christmas decoration right after All Souls’ Day.




So here I am, looking at what we have after so many Christmas. We need to update. Major update. I don’t like those cheap-looking decor. I don’t like tacky either. Our space is not big but I want classy ornaments for my simple abode. Here’s what I saw from SM Home.

????????????????????????????????????

 

I want to take a break from red this season, but because I have kids, I think they’ll love this Glittered Santa Cones. This can be used as a table topper but I want to put this somewhere where it will greet my kids when they go home from school.

I love this Christmas tree.  Elegant yet polished.

PHOTO5

 

Metallic shades for me give that minimalist yet chic appeal. I think my home is still stuck with the green and red motif. Haha.




I also like this one. Traditionally, we hang them but why not put them inside a jar? But I’m sure how it will look in smaller spaces, still I love the contemporary look.

PHOTO6

 

I think this is better for our home too. They are not the usual Christmas ornaments but silver and gold – so festive!

PHOTO7

 

Going back to tree ornaments, this is quite unique. Jester Mask as a decor? Why not?

PHOTO9

 

Because Christmas is all about parties and food, I might get these sugary table toppers. No, you can’t eat them. 😉

PHOTO13

 

What a nice way to bring the sugary side of Christmas.

PHOTO15

 

Is your tree up? Head to your nearest SM Home and revamp your old Christmas decor with something new that will spark up your guests’ curiosity and create that fun, chic, and sweet Christmas feel in your home

Converse Announces Collaborative One Star Collection With Engineered Garments

GROUP SHOT

Creative Director and Founder Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments set to release special edition CONVERSE ONE STAR

Converse and Engineered Garmentshave come together to introduce a new collaborative line of One Star sneakers. Engineered Garments Creative Director and Founder, Daiki Suzuki issues a collection that reflects his personal journey and relationship with Converse and plays on his affinity to reinvent and reengineer, while keeping with the shoe’s iconic look.

The Converse x Engineered Garments One Star collection is available in four iterations of the classic One Star logo including the Star Chevron, Stars & Bars, and two variations for the customary star. Suzuki recalls a specific era for each style all representing silhouettes of his personal favorites from Converse. The collection is available in four premium leather colorways including Olive, Navy, White, and Black. Aligned with Suzuki’s ethos of conceptual design through experience, the collection provides a lense on Converse’sdaring versatility through the years.




Founder, Daiki Suzuki says of the collaboration, “When approached with the project to work with Converse the idea came from wanting to tell a bit of the history of the company, first and foremost. Chuck Taylor, for us is a perfect shoe that we weren’t sure we could add or subtract to, its remained almost unchanged all this time. The One Star or rather the iterations after the “Leather All Star” was a canvas we thought could be mined to create something new. 

WHITE

 

“For Nepenthes/Engineered Garments, we have played around with the idea of twisting ideas together, creating negative/positive’s in one pair of shoes. In attempting to create something new, we thought it would be best to start the relationship by revisiting the past and melding the first four (after that “Leather All Star”) models into one. Doing them all at once will have memories for some, seeing them come out when they did and for others it will be a lesson on how things can change subtly over time. For myself it represents my youth, memories I hold dear.”

BLACK

The sneakers are leather-lined with an Engineered Garments branded logo illustrated on the shoe’s sockliner. Each pair are housed in Engineered Garments premium packaging with tonal cotton laces.

The debut Engineered Garments Converse One Star collection is exclusively available in Commonwealth, SM Aura for Php 5,990.
