Yesterday, I went to SM Aura with the hubby and his family after hearing mass at St. Pio of Pietrelcina Shrine in Libis, QC. SM Aura is the newest mall in town. It’s located at the posh Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It’s right beside two other commercial centers: Market! Market! and Serendra. It was our first time there so we explored it as much as our limited time could allow.
I love the design of SM Aura’s building as it looks so modern and stylish. The shops inside are also nice, although they’re obviously on the pricey side. SM Aura is marketed as a luxury mall, that’s why. When we were strolling around, I couldn’t resist entering the Forever 21 store and ended up buying two basic tops that were on sale. Their accessories section was also filled with beautiful things during our visit. They even had bold and funky rings that look like those college class rings for men except that they look good on women’s fingers, too.

After one postponement, our office’s team building activity/strategic planning workshop/summer outing has finally pushed through last May 6 & 7. It was held at Palm Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas. Since it fell on weekdays (Monday and Tuesday), our enjoyment was doubled. Having escaped work for two days straight was the best thing ever. Haha.
Palm Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas is a lovely place. It’s also more private and less crowded than the other resorts in the popular Laiya beach strip. (It must be the fact that it’s in a different barangay already and is tucked behind the mountains.)

Last weekend was all about rest and recreation. We had an overnight stay at Cross Winds Swiss Luxury Resort in Tagaytay. It was my SIL’s birthday last Saturday and she thought of taking us there for a weekend getaway.

We had a great time exploring the Swiss-inspired place, from the pine trees and the lush greenery to the beautiful Swiss-themed houses and the rest of the amenities. Truly, it was one weekend to remember. We just hung out in our room, ate our baon for lunch and snacks and had delivery food for dinner.

I found out about the newly-opened Solaire Resort and Casino at Entertainment City through the Instagram updates of several of my blogger friends. I got curious of the nice pictures they posted so I asked the hubby if we could go there one time. It seemed he was also interested in the idea because the day after, he told me we’d check out the place and probably play in the casino Friday night. Cool.

And so last Friday night on our way home to Bacoor, we dropped by at this world-class integrated resort complex just to know what the fuss was all about. Traffic was light at past 10pm so after around 20 minutes, we got to the place and parked our car inside the parking building that lets you park for free as a courtesy of Solaire to their guests.

It’s that time of the year again to hit the beach and bask in the glory of the sun. I’m talking about summer outings, my friends. Our office is not one to get left behind when it comes to summer outings especially now that we are allowed to have an all-expense-paid team building activity yearly.
But don’t get me wrong, the “all-expense-paid” part is quite an exaggeration. It’s not the “sky is the limit” kind. We’re never allowed to splurge because everything falls on a strict budget. But of course, we can still spend our own money if we like. Somehow, we’re still in control so we can have fun if we want to. And that’s what I like about it.

I will never get tired of going to Tagaytay. Ever. It’s such a great place for some chilling out, sight-seeing, and of course, food-tripping. Yesterday, the hubby and I, along with my SIL, drove up to the country’s second summer capital and had so much fun. We had brunch at Mushroomburger and desserts was at the famous Bag of Beans.

Sunday in Tagaytay is always busy. Families flock to the place to bond and unwind. There was no traffic yesterday, though, which was a good thing. Because my SIL hasn’t gone to The Cliffhouse yet, we took her there and as we had suspected, there were a lot of people strolling around and the parking slots were full. We parked outside the nearby Yellow Cab and Army Navy instead and sneakily crossed over The Cliffhouse so my SIL could take a look around the place while we enjoyed the view and took pictures. Haha.
