Enjoying Baguio Bliss: Experiencing Eurotel Day 2-3

Enjoying Baguio Bliss: Experiencing Eurotel Day 2-3

I’d been thinking of putting all of my Eurotel experiences in one post, but because I’m a highly detailed person, I remember almost every single detail of the trip…and I just couldn’t fit it all into one post. I woke up to my alarm at around 5.30am, but because I was greatly enjoying my sleep, I went back to bed. Chino and I didn’t wake up until around 7.30 and by then, we were scrambling about, wondering if we’d make the call time for breakfast. We went down to find that we were the first of our group to actually have come down for breakfast. Hooray for us! I bet I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed their sleep the night before. Breakfast at Eurotel I’m very particular about my breakfast. I love eating breakfast and I love enjoying a delicious meal in the morning. Good thing Eurotel had prepared an engaging breakfast meal that included corned beef – my favorite, eggs, and garlic rice – a meal which I approved of. I’m also a big mango juice drinker so I appreciated the delicious mango and apple juice they’d set. By the way, the night before, Zyn, Genner and Joel had challenged us to a game of finding specific locations in Baguio and taking the exact same pictures to win

Enjoying Baguio Bliss: Experiencing Eurotel Day 1

You can never judge a book by its cover, nor should you rely on first impressions to lead your vacation’s decisions. Apparently, this is what Eurotel taught me when I was chosen to take part in their Baguio Bliss event in February 4-6, 2012. I arrived at around 4.30am on February 4, 2012 at the Eurotel North EDSA, which was the meet-up place for the event. I was greeted by a bellman, who gladly opened the door for me – just like the hotels in Cebu! Some other bloggers were already there so I sat down and chatted with them for awhile. Eurotel North EDSA The façade is different than I’d ever seen before in other hotels. I’ve never really gotten a closer look at a Eurotel hotel and the glass doors, carpeted floors, elegant setting and toned down lighting gave a homey atmosphere that was pleasant and interesting – perfect for a businessman’s lair. Zyn, Genner and Joel (the marketing team of Eurotel) were the first to greet us just before 5am. They offered us breakfast, and even though I already ate, I was happy to take on a bowl of soup and ice tea on the go (I would’ve take a bigger meal though, had I known the others would order big meals). The Cream of Corn soup

Kalui Restaurant, Puerto Princesa City

On our last night in Palawan, we ate at one of the most unique restaurants I’ve ever been to – The Kalui Restaurant. At the façade, the restaurant looks pretty normal – actually, it looks quite dark with the lack of streetlights in Puerto Princesa, except for the numerous tricycle drivers on wait outside. I honestly didn’t consider the place to be anything special. And then… we took a step inside. The night before, we had already been asking about Kalui. I didn’t know much about it – or more than Ate Leidy did, but apparently, reservations are highly recommended because the place is packed almost every night. That night, was no different. We had arrived at the restaurant without a reservation and we were slightly nervous that we wouldn’t be able to get a table. Lucky for us, a couple was about to make their exit in about 10 minutes so we decided to wait. Normally, I’d be very pissed off and impatient because I was quite hungry at that time. But from the look outside – I was curious. I wanted to know why there were so many people and see for myself what the big deal was about this place. We waited outside – 10 minutes, as stated by the waiter, before we were escorted inside to

Bulawan Floating Restaurant

Bulawan Floating Restaurant

One of the amazing restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure of going to is the Bulawan Floating Restaurant in Pilillia, Rizal. I’ve heard of a floating restaurant before but I’d always pictured it as a boat or something similar. Instead, the Bulawan Floating Restaurant lies on the Laguna Lake, a 1.2 hectare fishpond surrounded by bridges, floating cabins and huts, a newly renovated swimming pool and Jacuzzi and the main kitchen area itself. My first visit there had been when I was in high school. I don’t really remember much anymore except that the place was a mess when we went since the storm Milenyo had just gone by. My next visit though, had been quite pleasant. Bulawan Floating Restaurant is a seafood restaurant owned by one of my mother’s friends from Papua New Guinea – which was how we were invited to the restaurant in the first place. The Floating Restaurant is quite a scene with Asian tourists because they like to fish (based on my observation, because the three times I’ve been there, the place was packed with Chinese and Koreans who were fishing). While the place is still under renovation at one side and could use more development, Bulawan Floating Restaurant proves to be of high potential. Why go?   The food – you have to love
