Stress free at AurumOne Makati

Aurum is came from the Latin word Gold, no doubt of the design and color of the hotel is more of gold. The AurumOne Makati is owned by a Filipino cooperative, all owners of this hotel are working as OFW/Overseas Filipino Worker before like Engineers, Architect, Nurse and etc. The main target of KSK SMP Coop or Kapatiran sa Kasaganaan Service Multi-Purpose Cooperative is to help people how they can invest their money while working overseas. The vision of this cooperative is to provide members the opportunities to own a profitable company their families can work for when they come home for good.

I was on a rush when I arrived at the hotel because my friend was waiting for me for our next adventure at Atipolo, Rizal. When I entered the building, my eyes focused on the paintings hung at the lobby wall instead to the front desk officer, it's maybe because I love paintings but, then again I don’t know how to paint. Upon confirming my reservation they gave my key card and assisted me going to my room. AuromOne Makati is an 8 storey building located at Evangelista St., Bankal, Makati City. It is about 30 minutes from Ninoy Aquino International Airport and it's near train station.

My reserved room is in AurumOne Loft which is very spacious with one Queen Size bed that good for two adults but they allow up to four people. My room also has complimentary bottled water, Coffee and tea facilities, Cable TV, Minibar, Telephone, In-room safe, Bath Amenities, Writing desk, Microwave, Eclectic stove with cookware and crockery. The Wi-Fi is strong enough to watch a movie but, sometimes they lose connection.

Upon entering my room I took a rest in the couch while watching Tv and enjoying the full blast air-condition. At 12nn, I left the hotel and met my friend before we headed to our destination. By 4pm, I decided to go back to Manila because I am excited to take a power nap in my bed. I am very sad and tired of the traffic in Metro Manila as I arrived in Makati after 2 hours. I didn't have any energy left not because of adventure but because of the horrible traffic.

The good thing about the location of hotel is that, it has many food chains and 24/7 convenience store near it. So, I grabbed a set meal at the convenience store because I am so hungry and didn't have time to walk around to look for decent food.

After dinner,something is telling me not to go out and just stay in my room and be pampered, So I stayed. I didn't check the time because I instantly fell asleep in a very comfy bed. When I woke up in the morning, I feel so very relaxed, must be the bed, I think. I can say that the bed is absorbed my stress in my whole body. I am not aware of what brand they used until I asked to the Manager. He told me that they use Uratex, thumbs up to the company for choosing that brand.

My reserved room has a complimentary buffet breakfast served at the 8th floor of the building, where some of the function rooms are located. They served at least 3 main courses, soup and fruits.

The room rate is very reasonable start at 1,800 pesos for two people and it’s a good choice for our OWF who plans to stay in Metro Manila before going home.

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.

The last time I depart/arrive at this airport was in 2011 my 1st ever travel. There's a lot of changes and it more beautiful. I headed straight to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass since I check…
