You know when they say that If its meant for you everything comes easy? Well that’s how it happened for our Church and Wedding reception venue that’s found in the heart of Marikina City.
Who would have thought that the “Shoe Capital of the Philippines” would become a very special place to us. As when I said Compromise, I meant middle ground – So he’s from Rodriguez Rizal and I am from Taytay… and so Marikina becomes our Compromise. I am not complaining though as I discovered this perfect and oh so convenient place where our vows will take place in January 2016.
Last 2012 on my 25th birthday, I went to St. Joseph Parish as I have always been fascinated with its history and architecture. Rustic, traditional and quiant are the words to describe this piece of heaven atop the municipality of Baras Rizal. Right there and then I decided that that will be the Church where I’ll get marry…

Kobe has always been special.
With his enormous weight, long four legs, shiny black coat and adorable patience and calmness to everything. He’s the perfect Doberman.
But his illness caught us off guard. Shock to our core and clueless in a way. We weren’t prepared to what happened. It’s a first in the family to deal with such sickness and God knows we tried, but I guess he has a different plan in mind.
Two weeks ago, A thought came to mind… My dreaded thought came to mind: Kobe needs to sleep. Isn’t it unfair? He’s still young and has so much more to give but his body is weak, really weak that everytime I see him suffering in silence it pains me.
Cancer’s a bitch! The evil C has yet again brought me down to surrender a loved one, Has yet again took away a source of happiness.
Everyone keeps telling me that it is time, but who am I to decide to take someone else’s life? Only God can… But deep inside I know it really is time.
I’ll always miss you my dear Kob Kob. Be with Ma your new master up in heaven. Until we meet again…
While browsing on the Deal Grocer website, I saw a great deal worth Php. 2,700 for an overnight stay in a deluxe room and free breakfast for 2 at The Exchange Regency Hotel. I find the price very cheap, and so I instantly called their reservations hotline to inquire if my preferred date is open, after confirmation I bought the voucher and send it thru the hotel’s reservation email: firstname.lastname@example.org, within a few minutes I have a room booked!
Right from this transaction I observed their great service, however, upon researching on different blogs with reviews about the hotel my expectations aren’t really high… The main statement is: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR. The hotel’s location is very convenient. Just across BenPres building, a few walks from the Philippine Stock Exchange Building and about 2 streets away from megamall, It really is the hotel for a traveler who wants to have a place to stay within the business hub. The restaurants to dine in are plenty and the commuting to and from the hotel is never a problem.
About the room:
- The key card is needed in the elevator to access the floors and room
- The deluxe room is small but the furnitures are well placed so as to still present well decorated and not too crowded
- Toiletries are provided but no toothbrush
- The bathroom is small, but the door seems off in its place (I suggest that a sliding door will be better)
- Upon research, they said that the wifi is strong but during our visit it is slow
We were assigned on the 10th floor with a view of Meralco Avenue, the road noise is not much and never a bother. In the morning, we availed the free breakfast. I’ll say its okay. They should improve it more. We visited the amenities on the 3rd floor. The pool which is inviting for a swim, the fitness center which is well equipped, a little playground and golf area.
Overall the hotel is nice. Everything seems quite small but of course it’s not a grand hotel. Just the perfect size for a traveler who needs a place to stay in the city. Customer service is very much appreciated. Will go back If we want a place that’s cheap and right in the area. The statement is right. You get what you paid for.
