If you think I made this title up then you are absolutely wrong. We literally went to City of Dreams *cue sparkles and magical music* last November 5 regardless of my month-worth of work and thesis. I KNOW IT WAS A COCKY MOVE FOR ME TO COME WITH But hey, I think I deserve a little chill-cation after all of the things I’ve done for the past months…………………………………….drinking…………………………kidding……..
Woah okay, we’re getting a bit off topic .. hashtag awkward jk. So, it was quite a spontaneous trip but I was still prepared and brought my laptop and thesis data with me. Now let us all reminisce and laugh for I didn’t even open my laptop when we were at the hotel. City of Dreams is a hotel slash casino in one. Thought I could enter the casino place but then again I lacked a year of life to enter. Without bragging, this is a bloody expensive mini-vacation. Suites cost about a hundred thousand pesos per night while regular rooms are at fourteen to fifteen. I know, it costs a lifetime of a regular slum family or it costs about a year of education in UST. But do not worry, if you play a lot in the casino, they’ll prolly give you a complimentary aka free suite. What a deal! You might win some or lose some money but at least you got the chance to stay at this posh hotel!
You’re probably bored now reading, so here are now my photos of the hotel:
We stayed at the Crown tower – said the best of them all for there are various towers in the city of dreams. Now, I don’t have photos of our rooms because it was such a mess so here are some photos of me having a cheeky photo shoot in the restroom lol. Btw, only the suites have bathtubs. I know unfair.
In my head, my tub shots were cool and very artistic but then my fugly face cannot give me such thing so it’s just an attempt *cries*. On the other hand, the important thing is I have more artsy photos of the hotel itself yay!! Who needs IG-worthy selfies anyway if you’re aware that the infrastructures you’re at are prettier than you.
You must be wondering where the hell is my bikini photos. I’m sorry for I am insecure about my body especially now that I’m totes getting fatter because of stress eating. But here’s a cheeky one:
HA! Tricked you he he he he he he okay but seriously here’s one:
Talk about getting fat, restaurants here are bloody fancy. For dinner we ate at Red Ginger I think it’s Thai food not sure. Too posh for me to know.
Not a fan of Thai (if it is) but this was a good one. Is this what money tastes like? For dessert, there’s also this posh cafe called Cafe Society, ice creams and various pastries can be found here. This place will literally make you fat and broke.
Bought the pistachio one, shit man. Thought money supposed to taste nice. Nestle’s pistachio is better and I get a liter and a half of those rather than 2 scoops. Nonetheless, restaurants like these 2 are found at the Hyatt tower.
The Casino is dominant here next to its mall-like features
Since I’ve got my chill back after fangirling over a Christmas tree, by going to different towers, we kids take the bugee – ’cause it’s cooler. Kidding aside, it was hard to capture the ‘City of Dreams’ signage because obviously, we’re moving hence my photography skillz was tested. But here’s an attempt of me capturing this golden letters:
For our breakfast and lunch, we ate at the Cafe Society. We were supposedly going to eat lunch at Erwin’s Gastrobar but one of our relatives wanted to meet and eat lunch at the cafe so, we were basically filled with bread that day.
Then after lunch, we checked out and that’s basically my story of being sophisticated for a change and hope ya’ll now know my favorite VSCO filter lol WordPress is exposing my secret. Nevertheless, I had a great time at City of Dreams and hoping for more posh check-ins to come.
