To others, it may just be an overnight stay. However, for us, a staycation is the perfect excuse to "eject" ourselves out from our daily routine and to just relax, relax and relax some more. During our recent visit home, Paul and I stayed the night at Crowne Plaza Manila.
As I've probably mentioned a hundred times already (apologies for that), I was down with viral high fever that would go down in the morning and would shoot up again come night time almost all throughout the week that I was home. Our stay was no exception. I was okay in the morning but just as soon as I stepped inside our beautiful Premiere Suite, my temperature shot up to 39 degrees alarming Paul who told me to just stay in bed and rest till I feel better. It was a good thing that our room was really comfortable that I just snuggled under the sheets to keep myself from having chills and to lower my temperature too.
Anyway, let me give you a quick tour around our room:
We had to watch what we eat as we will be having dinner at Seven Corners later that evening and we just didn't want to spoil our appetite for what Seven Corners had to offer. More on that in my next post.
The morning after...
The next day, I woke up feeling hungry as I ended up eating so little the night before. The good news was my fever was went down but not wanting to push it, we decided to just call room service for our breakfast. Using the menu that they left on the door, I chose two Filipino Breakfast plates and one Continental to share. I told you I was hungry. :)
Paul had his usual Beef Tapa with Garlic Rice and Egg while I went for the Corned Beef Breakfast with Garlic Rice and Sunny Side Up Egg. We shared a plate of Continental Breakfast which consists of Omelette, Hashed Brown, Pancakes and Sausages. I enjoyed the Continental Breakfast more as I loved the fluffy pancakes as well as the perfectly cooked omelette. Paul loved his Beef Tapa though as he missed this a lot already. While we were not able to avail of the Breakfast Buffet at Seven Corners, we were really happy that we just ordered in. At least we got to enjoy our breakfast while relaxing in our room too.
We were able to request for a late check-out thus we even managed to nap after breakfast. Now this is exactly why our staycations are just so relaxing. All we do is to eat and sleep over and over again!
I was initially feeling really down that I had to cancel on a lot of meet-ups due to my fever. Thus, I'm so glad that we pushed through with our staycation at Crowne Plaza Manila as this has made our quick visit home truly memorable and relaxing.
Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is located at Ortigas Avenue corner ADB avenue, Quezon City.
