Quick February Trip to Manila

23 May
Last February, Steph and I had a quick trip to Manila to watch the play “Mamma Mia” at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The tickets were a gift from Mama Flor. We were supposed to get Cebu Pacificplane tickets months before, but we were able to purchase our tickets a week before our departure and it came out way cheaper than if we bought it in advance.We brought our car to Waterfront Hotel Mactan and tried the Park and Fly service.  When we arrived in Manila, we headed to our hotel.  We stayed at Trader’s Hotel because it was right across the CCP.  We were able to book a suite that included an afternoon tea, cocktail dinner, and buffet breakfast. We really made sure that we availed of the 3 “free” meals.

Since we arrived around 2, we had time to go to SM Mall of Asia after our afternoon tea at the top floor of the hotel.  After going around SM, we bought some food from Wendy’s (one of the fastfood chains that we miss and that we don’t have in Cebu).  We headed back to our hotel, freshened up, then had a mini-dinner.  We then walked to CCP and had a great time watching the play.

We had a late breakfast the next day before packing up.  We rode a cab to NAIA 3 for our flight. When we arrived in Cebu, we just paid for our parking then headed home.  It was truly an enjoyable trip to Manila. Hopefully, we could have more of this in the future. 🙂
