Johan’s first airplane ride

1 Mar

Baby have issues with elevators, we are worried before our trip since he might get scared during take off, so we already planned of making him sleep and we are lucky he was so sleepy when we boarded the aircraft. Mission accomplished! He was asleep until touch down to Mactan International Airport. Lucky us!

We also went to Bohol, it was Johan’s first ferry ride too! He wants to go down to roam around and we are having a hard time resisting him so we tried our best to have him sleep and have a peaceful ride.

On our flight back, there was no hint he’d fall asleep so we tried our best to divert his attention and play with him all the time. We also bought him a souvenir airplane stuff toy. We realized that there is nothing to worry on flying with baby. We our proud of you our little man! Until our next trip!

Hotel Review: Tune Hotel Cebu City

4 Jan

We were in Cebu for our 2nd anniversary celebration together with our little baby kulit Johan. We stayed at Tune hotel in Cebu City for one night.

Tune hotel is strategically located opposite to Ayala Center Mall, location is very convenient since it’s near to all the tourist spots around the City. There is also a 7-Eleven store downstairs.

When we arrived we were assisted with our baggage and led to the lobby at the second floor for check-in. Checking in and out of the hotel was a breeze. We were provided with 2 sets of toiletries in a reusable bag which contains a towel, soap and shampoo, the receptionist informed us to keep the bag as a souvenir.

This hotel offers a unique way of service than a typical hotel, with Tune hotel you can customize your needs during your stay example is you can choose for how many hours you will use the aircon, wifi, toiletries etc, less needs, less fees.

We booked our stay using Agoda and everything was already included and it turned out to be cheaper than booking from their website. It was my first time to book via Agoda, I didn’t call the hotel before booking, I just trusted the reviews and we didn’t encounter any problem.

The room is small if you are used to usual deluxe room hotels, other than the room size everything is great. The room is modern, very clean and new, the bed is comfortable, there is an LCD tv, the bathroom is clean and water from the shower is strong. If you are to stay in the city this place is highly recommended, please note that no activities can be done in the hotel other than watching tv and sleeping. We booked here since we needed a place to sleep for a night before heading to Bohol.

Johan’s First International Destination booked!

9 Nov

Happiness! Last night I have seen the latest promo of Cebu pacific and I am itching to book immediately. Unfortunately hubby is already sleeping so I can’t proceed without his approval. I tried to wake him up but deadma. I tried to sleep and had a hard time sleeping since my mind is already on flight mode haha! I’m just hoping that there would still be available seat by tomorrow. When we woke up I asked if I can book a trip for Johan’s birthday celebration next year, and yeeeeeees hubby said okay. I immediately booked for our trip and had an error sine Johan would be leaving the country categorized as infant, then will come back categorized as a child, so I can’t book a round trip ticket, I needed to book twice such a hassle but it’s ok since we still got a slot and what’s important is… It’s on sale.
