Because Acacia Hotel is just around the corner, my family & I have never stayed overnight as our home is but a stone’s throw away. (Mej malakas na hagis lang ha. Pag mahina hindi aabot). So when an opportunity came up for a staycation smack right on my birthday weekend, I was too happy to let the opportunity pass. The GOppets LOVE staycations. Even if it’s just right at our own “back yard”. There’s something about the uber cool air-conditioned rooms, the soft, scented duvets, GREAT FOOD, and impeccable service that’s makes you feel sated & relaxed each time. Exactly how it should be on one’s birthday don’t you agree?
We started my day with a yummy birthday lunch. STEAK! And with that, my birthday started out the way I imagined it to be! <3 Surrounded with people who love me and things that I love, like food -and drinks -and more food! :P
