Overnight at Oakwood Premier Joy Hotel

We had a chance to stay at Oakwook Premier Joy Hotel last March. When I first heard from my husband that we are going to have an overnight stay at Oakwood, I thought he was referring to the one in Makati. It was different pala. It was located in Ortigas. And in my mind sabi ko "meron palang Oakwood doon?"

Anyway, when we arrived at Oakwood, hindi masyadong stunning yung building niya. I dunno ha, kasi medyo parang off yung location ng lobby niya. Instead of facing the main road, dun siya facing sa inner street. Pero ok lang naman kasi when we went inside our room, bumawi naman. The room is big. It's like a studio condominium. According to my husband, Oakwood Premier Joy Hotel is a serviced apartment kaya ganun ang features ng room.

Let me show you the inside of our room.

There's a king sized bed and a sala...

Their TV and entertainment system (hindi masyado kita sa picture)...

Kitchen area...

Complete ang gamit sa kitchen. Sayang I didn't know. Sana nakapagbaon kami kasi pwede pala magluto. =)

The bathroom...

You could see that the toilet area is separate from the bathroom area.

The walk-in closet area...

There is an office nook and a laundry area adjacent to it...

Our accommodation includes buffet breakfast for two. Nothing extravagant and limited lang ang food choices compared to other hotels. But still, it is still satisfying.

Overall, we had a nice and memorable stay at this hotel. We recommend it to long-term travelers who want to stay within Ortigas.

Food Trip: Erawan Thai Food

One time, I craved for Pad Thai noodles pero our favorite Thai resto is in Makati pa (that is Som's Noodle House). Buti na lang there is this Thai resto inside our village that's why there is no need to travel far na. The name is Erawan Thai Food.

Actually, I've been seeing Erawan Thai Food na before. That is when it was still located along Lalaine Bennett St. I've always wanted to try its food but parking prevents me to. As far as I remember, parang wala itong available na parking tapos it is located along the main road pa.

Now, it transferred already along BF Resort Drive, kaya ayun, we had a chance to dine in already.

It is just a small restaurant as you can see here...

At peak hours, maraming kumakain. Buti na lang when we came there, patapos na mga tao kumain kaya nakakuha kami kaagad ng table.

Here is their menu...

We ordered the following:

Large Thai Fried Rice...


Their fried rice is yummy! Kahit walang ulam, ok na!

Large Chicken Pad Thai...


Masarap rin naman their Pad Thai pero I like Som's more. Parang may kulang kasi na ingredient and medyo bitin pa rin ang large size. Ewan ko lang ha kung sadyang matakaw lang kami o medyo konti lang talaga ang serving nila. Haha!

Large Thai Crispy Fish...


For this one, ang nagdala is the sauce. May pagka sweet and tangy ang flavor. Maganda rin ang pagkaprito ng fish so it's crispy from the outside and juicy inside. Nagustuhan nga ng mga bagets eh.

We ordered also Thai Milk Tea priced at P60.00. Sakto lang. It doesn't have the woody taste (if it's how to describe it) that I've expecting.

Overall, taste-wise and price-wise, it is reasonable naman. We will probably go back to have a quick fix of our Thai cravings!

Wiwi Problem

Hello guys! I'm here again. As much as I wanted to write and write blog entries, hindi ko na magawa. Hindi na talaga kaya ng powers ko eh. Kung makakasingit, I'll try my best to write something. =)

Anyway, I have a problem right now. It's about Ina, my only girl and youngest child. The problem is she is imitating her brothers in peeing! As in if she goes to the CR, she'll put up the toilet seat and stand in front of the toilet and pretend to pee. Parang lalaki lang!

Then, when I try to let her pee by sitting on the toilet seat, pumapalag. Kailangan talaga ng matinding pakiusapan and explanation na she is a girl and she needs to pee that way. And take note, I demonstrate to her pa how to pee. Hahaha!

So ngayon, binilinan ko na ang mga kuya niya to always close the CR door when they pee and not to show Ina how they pee. Haaayyyssttt... Monkey see and monkey do nga naman...

For you moms there who has an only girl, do you or did you experience this also? How do you go about it? Please share naman. =)
