Fairmont Makati @ Philippines, Manila

Stayed at Fairmont Makati twice during my business trip. The hotel is well located, walking distance to shopping malls. I was able to do market visit on my own. One of the malls, Greenbelt Park.

The room was comfortable

The first time I stayed, the check-in was in my room. Felt awkward because there was just me with the Fairmont staff. The staff were friendly, made the stay pleasant.

I didn’t get to explore much but I did go for local food after work. I love Filipino food. One of my favorite dish is Sisig (pig’s head and liver) with white rice. I know how it sounds but it is so good…

I do miss traveling for work and overnight setup for product launches.

Anyway, I had my reason. Sacrifices one has to make to have a family…

Strawberry Park Resort @ Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

A short trip to Cameron Highlands from Singapore in 2012. We took a coach from Singapore on Friday night and reached Cameron Highlands the next morning.

We stayed at Strawberry Park Resort for 2 nights. It was a pleasant stay as the rooms were spacious.

The resort was very relaxing with a great view

Maybe it was the weather, the flowers in the resort were really beautiful

The resort has many dining options so you don’t have to worry. We tried the Strawberry Court Thai Restaurant.

Outdoor view. Since Cameron Highlands as the name suggests on the high, it was cooling.

You should try the strawberry pizza. Looks great and taste delicious.

At the end of the tour, we get our steamboat dinner. The vegetables were so fresh.

I loved the steamboat so much because everything was so fresh.

The only downside to this trip was the journey to and fro, on the bus. The ride was about 8 hours… Anyway, it was an awesome trip.
