Discovering the Discovery Suites

We celebrated Father's Day, which was one week late, by staying overnight at the Discovery Suites in the Ortigas Center, which is just a few blocks away from the SM Megamall and just across the Podium. You get to park for free at the basement level 3 and 4. The driveway was too narrow that we had observed a lot of scratches on the wall at the turns, probably from cars who miscalculated their driving going down. After finding a suitable parking slot, we took the elevator going to the ground level where the Reception area is. When we got there, lots of people were waiting in line to check in. After getting our electronic key and the breakfast stub, we took another elevator going up to our room on the 16th floor.

Hungry for a Hungarian?

 were finally able to use our vouchers for Hero sausages when we went to the Ayala Center in Makati. Found in the Food Choices  in Glorietta 4, we missed it the first time we went around the food court because it had transferred its location from the last time we went there.

We bought the 2 vouchers at Metro Deal for P133 each.  A voucher is good for 2 sausage sandwiches with drinks. After presenting our vouchers, we had to wait for about 15 minutes as there were other people ahead of us who had ordered rice meals, that is java rice with slices of sausages. The sausages are deep fried which I guess is really not that good for the heart, he he he. I think this was just the second time I had Hero sausage and the first time for my wife and daughter.

Kainan sa Paete, Laguna - Capati Kainan

What does one do when one didn't take lunch because he was in a hurry to get to church as the wedding invitation says the ceremony starts at 1PM but in reality is scheduled at 2PM? That's what happened to us last Saturday, we got to the church before 1 PM, realizing later that no wedding was to take place as indicated in the inviation.

Zero Plane Fare: Is it worth it?

Cebu Pacific had announced yesterday in their website that they are offering ZERO fare to all domestic and international destinations up to June 10 or until seats last. I have always seen this advertisements but somehow haven't really availed of it. It's either all those zero fare seats are already sold out (maybe they just offered 1 or 2 seats per flight and were already taken by friends of Cebu Pac employees who have advanced info?) or you get a zero fare one way but have to pay full fare on your return trip or vice versa.

End of Summer Outing: Palms Country Club

PAGASA has declared that the start of the rainy season has began. Before the start of the school year, we decided to use the vouchers we bought earlier from Beeconomic. Each cost P250 and entitled one to the use the pool and gym at the Palms Country Club in Alabang. Aside from this, each of us were also given a coupon which can be used to buy food worth P500 at the Cafe Asiana.  Among Angel, Vangie and I, we had P1,500 to spend for food for the day.
