Hotel Review: Novotel Citygate Tung Chung, Hong Kong

If you’re planning on taking a quick trip to Hong Kong, I personally think that one of the best hotels that you can stay at would have to be Novotel Citygate, located at Tung Chung.

The room we got was their Superior room with two twin beds.

Hotel Review: ibis Central and Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

There are two ibis hotels in Hong Kong. One is located at North Point and the other is located at Central & Sheung Wan. Looking at various reviews, we opted to stay at the latter as though the North Point branch may be cheaper, the ibis in Central and Sheung Wan has rooms with a view overlooking the Victoria Harbour and for an affordable price too and that is what, more or less, sealed the deal for us.

The room we opted for was the Harbour View Room. It’s little, but as there were only two of us, we had more than ample amount of space to move around. Also!! Look at that pretty view. ❤

Staycation at Sofitel Plaza, Manila

There are a few times in a year that my family is given the chance to stay overnight at Sofitel Plaza (also known as Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila) – perks of being an Accor Plus Member. Anyway, though we get to stay here a couple of times already, the experience never gets old.


Road to paradise, haha, I think every aspect of Sofitel is picture-worthy! When you’re here, I think it’s easy for you to get an Instagrammable shot. 🙂


My *staycation* essentials:

-Pilot Pikachu that I got from Kansai International Airport – he’s always strapped on to my camera bag haha!

-My phone(s) – now this I cannot go anywhere without! Though I mainly use my camera to capture moments, I still bring my phone around as back-up; usually just to quickly snap a photo or video to share on IG, or maybe post a Tweet on Twitter. Anyway, in this day and age where there seems to be wi-fi everywhere (if not, mobile data’s there to save the day!), these babies are usually with me wherever I go, staycation or not. Anyway, Sofitel has really fast wi-fi so I definitely have to bring ’em with me lol.

-A book. I brought Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaardner with me. It’s really interesting and thought-provoking. One of the best books I’ve read so far this year!
