As DM Residente also overbooked their Deluxe rooms, all 8 of us were upgraded to Suites for no extra charge. Love ko’ to!

My room number.

There’s the kitchenette.

The very spacious room.

The toilet.

Tried sleeping but couldn’t so I just watched tv instead. I am so getting used to having a room all to myself.

07.16 pm – Chowking for dinner.

We wanted to have Chowking for supper on the first night but too bad it was closed for cleaning.

‘Welcome to Chowking, sir.’

The menu on the board looks very Chinese-y.

10.10 am – Woke up and discovered my roomie still being a log.

So I took the lift and

went out in search of breakfast.

Thanks to the guy who directed the place to me, I found Kuwagos Grill.

A 2 storey 24 hour restaurant that serves the cheapest beers around at PHP110 / RM8 per 3 bottles.

The menu.

5 minutes later, my coffee came.

I like how my milk and sugar came in shot glasses.

The view from the second floor.

10.36 pm – Tilapiasilog with

adobong kangkung. Breakfast was delicious!

12.43 pm – These 3 fellas were the next to wake up while the rest was still sleeping.

And so I brought them to Kuwagos Grill and

they loved it too!

02.45 pm – The 4 of us moved into separate rooms as there were double bookings to our Executive Double Suites.

This ENTIRE ROOM was mine!

All to myself.

The shower.

The seating area.

The kitchen.

The fridge.

The red horse beer that was confiscated from me by immigration during the last day.

The view.

03.47 pm – The first 4 went into Taxi 1 and began their journey 5 minutes ahead of us.

We were about 5 minutes behind but still, both Taxi 1 and taxi 2 experienced rain as we were about to reach the historical site of Fort Santiago in Intramuros. =(

It rained really, really heavily so those in taxi 2 decided to turn around

and instead head towards

SM Mall of Asia which is the

4th largest shopping mall in the world!

Meanwhile, Taxi 1 already went down in Fort Santiago and was stuck in the rain with no other taxi in sight.

So, they stood around and

took pictures of the surrounding area of Fort Santiago

in the heavy rain.
