Makati Shang Easter In The City


 Over the weekend, the GJGs went on a lovely staycation at Makati Shangri-La. We love doing staycations because it's a breath of fresh air from our usual & daily routine. It's the lil' GJGs who are really looking forward to doing staycations. My lil' Ms. GJG even has her opinion of the hotel we stay in. Usually, she would quip about how nice the pool is or how pretty the room is. Next thing I know, she'll be in charge of doing accommodations review here on the blog. For now, let me share ...

I can still vividly remember what it was like five years ago. The nesting phase when all I can think about is seeing her for the first time.

They look alike & have ... [ Read More ]

The holidays may be over, but for us it isn't until Chinese New Year comes. While browsing through hundreds of photos we have accumulated over the merriest time of the year, I couldn't help but smile as I look at the album of our quick getaway the day after Christmas. We went to Baguio for three days to enjoy the cold weather and just relax and have fun with our extended family. We left five 'o clock in the morning as Mr. GJG, the official driver wanted to be there early so not to waste a day ... [ Read More ]
