A Weekend Staycation at Alcoves Apartment

It was a last minute when I decided to fly in manila via Clark airport from Caticlan/Boracay since I got a cheap airfare round trip compared to NAIA.  

I was stumbled upon in the internet and I found this property perfect for my staycation. I filed a double day off in my work and fly.

Since my landing is at Clark airport and I need to travel almost 3 hours to Manila, but before I headed I just dropped by in Sm City, Pampanga to meet my friend who's living in Lubao to join me in my Lunch at Cabalen Restaurant  
The room I booked is located in Greenbelt Radisson Building. I find this place more accessible since it's just less than 10-minute walk to Greenbelt 1.  I arrived in the hotel past 8 in the evening because I leave in Pampanga at 3pm and I got stuck in the traffic. 
The check-in process was so smooth after presenting my Id, the guard on-duty, allowed me to go to my booked room A3. The alcoves team just emailed me the number combination of the door lock. I was surprised when I opened the door because one of the Alcoves team is patiently waiting for my arrival.

Ms. Dave is waiting and welcomed me to my booked room. She gave me  a short briefing of Alcoves before she bid goodbye. The room had complete set  of cookware & cookery that's perfect for me to cook my lunch on the next day. There's also a good wifi connection an extra pillow, blanket and towel on the cabinet that ready to use.
After settling all I felt hungry, but I am not worrying where to eat because down stairs, they are two 24/7 convenience store, so I grab a set meal and bring to my room and eat to satisfy my tummy. :)   
The next day morning I decided to a quick dip in their pool located on the 8th floor of the building. 

After swimming I went to the Rustan market in Greenbelt 1 to buy some ingredients for lunch menu. I cooked Tinolang Manok and Chicken Adobo.

The Alcoves team customer service is very responsive to the request and they making it expedite.

I informed the team that I will leave early morning on my third day because I need to catch my flight in the Clark airport back to Boracay and their response in a minute.

Overall, I enjoyed so much my staycation with the Alcoves Apartment.

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…
