A Makeover!

So, this is a new look! I am not sure how long this look will stay as I am still in search of that elusive template, but for now, this will have to do.

Staycation: Contemporary Hotel

Last Good Friday, my family and I decided to stay overnight at Contemporary Hotel in Araneta Avenue in Quezon City.  I bought a room from Agoda at P1,499 and added an extra bed for P500 upon checkin.  We had the room below, with two queen sized beds and the extra bed on the left.  It was more than enough for my family!
My criteria for selecting the hotel was: it has to have a pool, it has to be near and it has to be cheap. Contemporary Hotel all have those.  The hotel is just 3-5 minutes from our house and it has a hotel so it was good enough for us.  The only drawback is the TV was too small, and we had no wifi at the room (only at the lobby) and the signal on our pocket wifi was too weak. 
So we had a grand time at the hotel and then we were home after lunch, hahaha. My kids wanted to stay one more night but I said we will plan it some other time. Yes, our short staycation was fun, and I did not spend for gas, so it was indeed value for money!
