hotel la kollaros

[world's biggest pair of shoes, riverbanks mall, marikina city .guiness certified]

it's summer all over again and being in a tropical country, it is excruciatingly hot. here in bacolod, we have a power sharing everyday. that means an hour or two of brownouts. i don't know exactly if there is low supply of power or increased usage. anyhow, we still get by. some folks hit the beach. some of my friends will go to singapore. we plan on going to BORA in May when the peak season is just about to settle down.

well, as for us. we did start our summer break with a big holiday visit to my folks. my mum, like i said was a traveller and my dad was the follower. but sad to say when we visited them i cannot believe seeing my mum limping, my energetic, workaholic mum! limping? oh lord! no way!
anyways, after having gone with them to get checked by a doc and making sure they are on track, scott and i head for the concrete jungle for the next leg of our break, our metropolitan holiday! manila here we come! and by all the getaways, we went fishing...errr again...@ the manila ocean park where i came face to face with nemo.

we enjoyed every single day of that whole week in manila. we were blessed to have stayed in a greek hotel, hotel la kollaros. it is indeed a great personalized hotel with wifi connection, a plasma tv, a bar of 1900s select wines, and a fridge full of swiss chocolates all for free! a wake up call for breakfast by this cute kiddo, nikos also comes very timely at 7:30am. the food was great with sweet potatoes and all!!!and redhorse at night...
plus a standby car and driver 24/7. who ever get to stay in a hotel with a good transpo slash driver slash generousity all in one? well, only us! eat your heart out sis!
so i would like to take this opportunity to THANK the staff and manager slash owner of hotel la kollaros for all the kindness, hospitality, generosity, et cetera etcetera. scott and i enjoyed our stay with you guys!!! bless you all...
but then it was not a mission totally accomplished. we didn't see arf. we miss arf so bad!!!







bar and fridge full of swiss chocolates hmmm yummy/the hotel heirs/the suite

First Lady of La Kollaros Hotel, you don't have to get the black or brown high havs. get the red or green it will turn black or brown anyway as you constantly put them on for years. Hi beng, i really miss d days when were all sleeping in the living room@hotelfranco! he he he he
