Summer in the City!

Giving Summer a second chance in the city was surprisingly equally exciting with summer elsewhere.

Juggling work and travelling (for leisure) was a struggle for me even if I was able to manage everything well. I have to admit that there would always be times when I’d wish I was somewhere else with my friends for the summer. Unfortunately, I had to miss a lot of that because of work. Being able to escape once in a while has been a big help for me to have a quick break from stress and demands.

With P&G Philippines and Watsons “Summer in the City” campaign, I was handpicked to experience an unforgettable weekend with my blogger friends. With this campaign, they were promoting fun and hidden adventures that were yet to be discovered in the Metro. As part of the promo, a winner gets to invite three (3) of her friends to luxuriate in a 5-star hotel (Fairmont Makati), have a posh limousine ride, and a bang-up helicopter ride for an incredible view of the whole city. This was exactly what my blogger friends and I had during our awesome summer in the city experience.

(Queue in “Earned It” by The Weeknd. LOL!) To tell you more about my experience, I’m more than overwhelmed to be able to have had a 360 view of the Metro. This has always been part of my bucket list since it’s a big-ticket to ride a helicopter (not unless you’re Christian Grey). LOL. It was pretty much a once in a lifetime experience for me which could’ve been better had Jules been beside me. *cheesy*

Aside from that mind-blowing heli ride, discovering places like Bizu Patisserie and its secret room was also something I considered fun and new. Now, I know where to take my amigas when we plan to grab brunch or an afternoon tea. I would also like to give props to Fairmont Makati for their pleasant service throughout our stay. The room provided came with high ceilings which makes it look more spacious, and a winning bathroom which is exactly how I want my future bathroom to look like. Not to mention, I was able to share this room with Jules. Hihi! To wrap it up, the whole experience was remarkable!
