Makati Staycation with the Gang!


So last Friday, the blog barkada finally went on a "trip" with the " " dahil hindi naman kami nalayo. We were invited to a Makati Staycation (woot!) in the new Holiday Inn (more wooot wooooot!!!), and sobrang excited ko lang kasi the last time we went on a legit vacation was I think Sagada pa last March! 

I was a bit late for the check-in because I had a lunch meeting in Glorietta's T. Boy--but ang masaya is that isang tumbling lang with my small backpack--HELLO HOLIDAY INN! na! Wala nang airport delays and mas lalong wala nang 12-hour van-ride + sandamakmak na papers and transfers involved!

Hyper na hyper ako while waiting for them to pick me up sa lobby (with my welcome to Holiday Inn mint drink), ...sigaw na sigaw na ako ng "Staycation! Staycation!" Lol. 

So hinila ko muna si Sarah, and then dropped my things lang in my room (assigned to stay with Pax--na mas late pa sakin, while Tracy + Tin, and then Sarah + Paul).

We went to Sarah's room muna next to get her camera before we headed to the pool area for ootd.

Hello!

Our A+S twin ootd for that day was jumper, na lakas maka Kenses!
As in Dorothy of Wizard of Oz levels, hehehehe.

I asked Sarah to take my photo sa bed nila, pero ayaw niya kasi mukang "day-off" photo daw, hahaha.
Sha nalang kinunan ko ng picture, hehehe:

Selfie muna bago namin i-meet the rest! Para kaming mga bata sa photo na to noh? ;p
Or baka yung jumper lang talaga, umeeffect sha!!! ;p

Poolside tambay-slash-planning of the day's activities. 
We decided to not go na to one of our events (huhu), para isa nalang na fast ganap, and sulitin the hotel.
We also took our OOTDs na while may time.

And took instax photos while nakatambay-- na very IG worthy!

...Pare-parehas kaming ipopost, so paandaran nalang ng background! ;p 
Di talaga ako papatalo noh, lol:

Roadtrip muna via Paul's car! Hi Tin, Tracy, Paul, and Sarah's tattoo!

Hi Niche and Sarah!

---tapos balik hotel na uli nung nighttime na.
Saw Sarah and Paul na nagooutfit shots padin. Ayaw namin ni Sarah
magtabi with the jumper kasi mejo funny,
so she changed into her trademark skorts before our afternoon "roadtrip".

I was with Pax na that time, so we left the group muna.
Headed to our room - 911- aka the "Emergency Room"! Lolz! 

Siguro for that night 30 minutes the most lang ang tinagal namin ni Pax sa room namin! Hahaha! 
First was to drop Pax's things sa room before dinner. 
Nilagay ko lang yung fresh fruits sa welcome note, for more more effect, hehe:

ROOMIES! :)

Nakakaadik pala magpanorama shots noh!? Hi daw sabi ng leg ni Pax from the CR:

Cool, may plancha ding provided, aside from the robes, and the slippers.
Kaya ko tumira dito for one month, or forever! ;p

Pati pillows may variety:

 After dumive sa clean white hotel sheets, at sumayaw sayaw ng barefooted sa carpeted floors---tinext na
kami ng gang na gutom na sila (kami lang ang nahiwalay ng floor--pati sila Tracy and Tin asa 8th!)

From Holiday Inn, 10 giant steps lang Glorietta na! 
We had dinner sa nearby Wee Nam Kee. Si Sarah fumu-food coma, 
o natatawa nanaman sa documentation ko, hehe.

We also went around the mall and window shopped.
The goal then was to check out New Balance - but may slight stopover lang sa Sperry
dahil kay Paul - hehe nagulat ako sa kanya biglang asa glass mirror na!

We saw several stores in Glorietta carrying our new shoe brand obsession
- meron sa Planet Sports, The Athlete's Foot,
and there's a new New Balance solo store din pala in Glorietta!

Paul can't decide kung anong kukunin:

Chill team! Hahaha! Kinikilig kami ni Sarah niyan
thinking of the lakas maka-pogi New Balance (blue) 
pero hindi on sale so no nalang. :p

Sama daw si Pax sa photo, hehehehe (kinikilig ka padin ba Sarah? ;p)

Back in the hotel!
Ginawa na naming barracks ang room nila Paul and Sarah! 
Carvey also visited with Jear for a little ootd shoot they need
daw for SM Southmall. Kami models, haha!

Antok na si Pax, inuman na daw! Lol.

Si Paul bumablog pa for his day's post:

Mga walang magawa while waiting for the others to finish their shoot,
kaya selfie-selfie muna, kanwari "day-off" photos, hehehe:

Parang Friendster pictures lang, hahaha:

Inggit si Sarah sama daw sha, hahaha:

Di ko gets kung what's with the duckface, haha:

Nang iirita fez:

Bird's-eye view selfie, hehehe:

Picture muna with Jear before he left the hotel. Thanks dude!

Ang hyper na nung dalawa hahaha! 
Natatawa parin ako na may green stuffed toy na dala si Paul. 
Akala ko hindi sha makakatulog ng wala yun, hehehe. (client / for work pala)

From Jear's instagram! 
Yan ang aking inuman naaaa! pose! ;p

When Jear and Carvey left na, we decided to go to the nearby new Mini Stop
just across Landmark to buy our night's booze, chips, Tracy's milk, my Magnum,
at lahat na ng junk na maisip namin, haha.
Feeling asa abroad shot of Paul and Sarah, with the brown bags and deserted street:

Back inside the barracks, with our overflowing mini hotel ref (mga adik!)

Ayan lagpas hanggang table!

Meanwhile....
Baby Tracy's JCo and milk! Na naka hotel bathrobe pa ha! ;p Haha!


Dun pa talaga sa room ng mga OCs nag inuman! Hahaha!
Parang high school lang! We shared off-the-record things (hehe),
and panay laughtrip and kasabawan lang that night! Ang saya!

Nung naubos na the drinks, or before the night ended,
we (sa suggestion nadin ni Sarah) decided to checkout the hotel's rooftop
and had our last bottle narin sa poolside bar! Maximize!

Ang ayos ayos ng shot ni Sarah nitong elevator group photo,
anyareh na kaya sakin nito, hehehe:

Poolside drinks, more revelations, spin-the-bottle...
Ang sarap kasi mas malamig kasi outdoors, and everyone's super hyper!
Nakakamiss din pala yung ganito! :D

Kagulo na nyan pero infairness parang ang ayos ayos padin namin sa pictures, hahaha.

(Pahiram ng picture, Sarah!) E yung asa lamesa na kasi ako!? HAHAHAHA!

Back in the room, tawang tawa ako dito kasi
kasama padin namin yung stuffed toy ni Paul??! Hahahaha!

Eto pa ang isang TAWANG TAWA AKO!
Hahahaha! Pinagdiskitahan si only boy! ;D

Yung totoo, matutulog ng naka-cap?! Hahahaha!


Twin OOTD padin daw, HAHAHA! 

The next day, I woke up with our human alarm clocks
--una, sneezing of one of our roomies (haha),
and ang pangungulit nila Tracy and Tin! As in hila-ng-kumot panggigising!
It was 9am nadin, and kailangan naming makahabol sa free breakfast na till 10am lang!


I tried to take a panorama shot of the buffet area, but I was still so sleepy and groggy.
Tapos I left pa my glasses pa sa "emergency room" kaya mejo half-blind hehe. :p
Trippy shot of Tin, my breakfast buddy! Hehe:

"Ok na to!" buffet tables photo, hehehe.


My mix-mix plate:

Aside from flavored rice or sinangag + fried egg,
I LOVE yoghurt with my breakfast! Lakas maka-GV!

Nth cup of coffee - cure for the hangover:

Ayaw pa nila magpa picture, hehe sorry guys!


Thanks to Paul for the group photo!
Chinky Eyes Club:


I was seated next to Pax, na walang pinipiling oras ang energy.
Laughtrip lang coz we noticed this odd egg in a cute egg holder in each table,
and we can't figure out kung para san sha!
Di namin sha tinantanan kahit over na the rest of the table, hahaha.
Pax: "Is it Easter yet!???" HAHAHAHA.

Me: "Huh!? Egg of the Bolognese Egg???? Bat may Day sa likod!?"
Pax: "If egg yan ng Bolognese Egg, ASAN YUNG MOTHER EGG!!!?!"
HAHAHAHA! Had to take a panorama shot:
...Yun pala, after Sarah asked one of the waiters kung "Para san yung itlog!???"
(hahaha! Oo nga naman, magtanong kasi!!!)
"Egg of the Day. Bolognese Egg" pala shaaa.. Aaaahhhhhh.... (lol).

Spot the egg of the bolognese egg! HAHA.

Sige lang sa pantulog ootd:

Decided to go to the rooftop again before we pack-up na for check-out (huhuhu)
Had to take Sarah's picture in her silk shoshal pajamas, red Celine bag, plus a cup of coffee -- fashown!

Lounged around before parting ways na in our own rooms to fix our bags.

Went back to the "emergency room" with Pax for pahabol tulog, and then ligo na.
Nagplancha din si Pax para mamaximize ang room, haha joke:

Local TV (Showtime) + Clean Sheets, while waiting for Pax to finish.
Eto na talaga yung "Ayoko na umuwi!!!!" moment.

Here's something that I enjoy din during sleepovers!
Enjoy kami mag share ng makeup tips and kaartehan!

Bye emergency room!!! Na naging tambakan lang namin ng gamit, at liguan! ;) Hehe!
You served us well! Lol.

We all gathered in the Lucky Room 808.

Hello Ayala!!! The view from Paul+Sarah's room:

Ang daming nangyayari during checkout:

Before we left the hotel, we took more group photos!
Kanwari katatapos lang ng retreat! ;p

Lakas maka high school noh! Hehe!

Nasesep-anxiety nako nito--di pa kami nagbababay! ;D
"Sepanx!"
Pax: "Ano yun?"
Niche: "Yung suot mo pag nakabodycon ka!"
HAHAHA.
