photocred for pic below-philippine travel guide:
Though the strong, vertical, and big droplets of rain and winds ended mid afternoon, there was no telling if the rains would come back [which it did] and it didn't mean that the floods the rains caused around the metro would've receded by the time our [mine and theBenj's] work day finished. He was sent home early while that sending home early NEVER happens in the call center industry, i had to finish my shift [albeit off line work] to the very last minute. we both thought it best for us to just check in at the holiday inn for convenience sake. so he got us a room...and here it is.
hehehe tEh baconnnnn
the food for breakfast at crowne plaza - 7corners is better than holiday inn's breakfast at bar one. overall, i'd rather stay here at holiday inn than at the crowne just for the wonderful beds.
the overnight stay with buffet breakfast for two was about 5k without vat. well worth it in my opinion than get stranded in traffic trying to get home in a storm, flood, and no power at home. AND since we were already in ortigas, all we had to do is check out and walk to work ;-) no hassle of avoiding still flooded streets the day after the storm.
