Casablanca, Tagaytay,Philippines 2010

I am back in Manila for long weekend. I am not expecting anything but just to spend time with my family and play with my hyper active but lovable nieces and nephew. Touched down Manila, Saturday night & went straight to grocery store with my mom. Honestly, I got irritated with all those pressure just to be in the market before it closes and get all what we can. I was like, I just got here...hello? and I am here to relax not to do amazing race.

So, anyway I didn't know we got something planned for long weekend -Hola! Tagaytay. Tagaytay has special place in my heart because everything gets perfect when you are there. It is just an hour or two away from the city, perfect escape to chill out and hang out with people close to your heart and for all the coffee lovers... grab your fave cup of coffee and enjoy the cool breeze in Tagaytay.

Tagaytay is perfect in its own way but we found this place that has the perfect view of  Tagaytay - Casablanca. What about Casablanca? It is a big house turn into a hotel and when you rent it the whole place is yours. It can accommodate thirty people that's why make sure when you plan to rent it, bring all your loved ones. See? me I just thought of being with my family and the next thing I know I was playing pool & doing videoke with my grandma, cousins, uncles and aunties. Yes! it has pool tables, swimming pool, videoke and the like.

What are the other details? Oh! do they serve food? No. Since they respect your privacy no one else is there except you & your crew. You can bring food. They got posh, spacious, clean dinning area. How about the rate? the whole place you can get it less than $1,000 USD.  It is not expensive at all because you have the whole house plus it can accommodate thirty people that can have their fair share, right? After all, it is worth your money because you are able to spend time with the people you love. Experience - Priceless!

For booking, make sure you do in advance due to the place is in demand. By the way, don't hesitate to shoot some question. I'll be happy to help in any way I can. :)

Paradiso (Bed & Breakfast) KL, Malaysia

Definitely two thumbs up for this hostel. Located in the city. Everything is just within your reach; Shopping malls, Petronas (don't be lazy it's fun just make sure you have your camera with you), train/mrt, restaurants from cheap to expensive one, and at night, you can just go around and look where you & your friends can hang out and anytime you can take taxi, there are a lot & not that expensive. I stayed there overnight but was able to do a lot of things.

Paradiso indeed a paradise despite the hassle and bustle outside. Staffs are all friendly and accommodating. Rooms & restrooms are super clean. Sofa in the living area is marshmallow like for its softness, super relaxing and you can chill out with your friends... you can watch movies, play video games or sing even more you can meet other nationals for it is common area or hang out roof top and chill with bottle of wine. It has also mini library just saying for bookworms.

What I love the most... the price for a night is just so cheap that will make you want to live there. A night per person cost only $10 usd. And they don't treat you less.
