In the 4-5 times that our dear Anderson has dropped us off at F1 Hotel Manila, hindi na siguro sya nakapag-pigil & one day asked me if maganda ba yung hotel coz we keep going back time & again to this place where FAMILY is FIRST. The Home of Happy Experiences.
Then it dawned on me. Omigosh! Anderson & his family have never ever stayed in a 5-star hotel! So I made sure I got him a room asap so they can also experience a staycation. I don’t know why I never thought of this. How selfish of me! :(
For all the past occasions, we always gave him what we thought he needed. What was most useful. I should have thought that he too would appreciate something grand. A mini vacation! <3
Anderson has always been a grateful person so I am never sorry when I give him things because he truly appreciates the gifts -big or small.
With F1 Hotel Manila‘s permission, I gave my birthday voucher to Anderson for him & his family to enjoy. It was bundled with a breakfast package for 5. PLUS! My friends at F1 Hotel Manila even added a dinner perk for 5. I was deliriously happy & excited for the Abejaron family! <3
So the birthday giveaway that I had intended for you my dear readers, I directed to his family instead. I know you will understand & will be happy for them. Because that’s the kind of readers you are. Always happy for me and with me. I am so blessed. <3
A little backgrounder, Anderson has been with my family since I was single. That’s more than 30 years! And we love him dearly -he’s part of the family, really. I hope I can do this for him yearly. He is really so masipag & masinop. We don’t even have to ask him to do things around the house. He has the initiative to do the job on his own. In the times that he doesn’t drive for us, namamasada pa sya ng jeep sa gabi paguwi to make ends meet. That’s how industrious he is.
Meanwhile, his wife Edith is Kap’s Assistant Manager in his Bulilit Petron and has been with him from business to business. She can be relied on for just about anything & everything.
Kap & I were privy to the love affair that bloomed between Anderson & Edith. Edith was new in Manila & worked for my Mom when Kap & I were still dating ourselves. Anderson was already under my mom’s employ even before Kap & I met. They met, they fell in love, and now, they are blessed with kids & a grandkid who is my Ate‘s inaanak. CLICK HERE to read.
Because they are both busy people, I was fortunate to get them a room during Holy Week. Perf too coz their daughter graduated from high school just last month. I was the one super excited for them.
Allow me to share with you some go their staycation photos below..

Kap was so thoughtful & lent Andres a car so they can arrive in style & comfort. I knew I bagged a Prince when I married Kap. So gallant & kind this husband of mine! <3

Sharing is caring so I shared some of my Belo sunscreen stash. When in the sun, don’t forget to slather on lots of sunscreen from Belo Sun Expert! Thanks to my generous friends at Sample Room PH! Being under the sun is suddenly SPF50x better! #BeloSunExpert!
My girls & I visited the lovely Abejaron family to make sure they had everything they needed, and that they were enjoying their stay. <3 Edith is holding in her arms a spanking new iPad gifted by Kap for a job well done as his right-hand man at his bulilit Petron. I’m only pointing this out because I always diss Kap to you as a tightwad. But my darling of a husband really has a good & kind heart. He pulls through in spite of his stingy ways haha.
Meanwhile, as the Abejaron family splish-splashed to keep the heat away, we GOppets gals had Ice Cream at the nearby FARMACYto cool off. <3
As a surprise, the Abejarons were treated to a Buffet Dinner for 5! <3 PHP1399+TAX Mon-Sun Thank you F1 Hotel Manila for your generosity! :-*

In line with this recent development, and seeing how happy a simple wish granted can make, I am coming up with a MONTHLYMake-A-Wish-With-Ms-Piggy corner! Priority of course goes to the more deserving letter sender who may not afford such luxury. <3
If you have a wish (limited to local staycations, dining perks, shopping perks, beauty perks, or even meet ups with any of your favorite bloggers, writing lessons, cooking lessons, baking lessons, whatever your heart desires within reason), just send your letters to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my best to make one monthly letter sender’s dream/wish come true. Hanggang kaya ng powerz ko!
It will be easier if the WISH you choose will be coming from any of the sponsors on my post. But if not, I will still do my best to get you that wish. :) If your letter doesn’t get chosen, don’t lose hope. Remember, there are 12 months in a year! ;) And you might just be the next lucky letter sender. ;)
Thank you for your continued trust in me. I truly value your support. If not for you my dear readers, I wouldn’t even have sponsors to make dreams & wishes come true. So basically, I owe it all to you! :-*
