Vacation Diaries: NYE in Makati

On New Year’s Eve my family and I flew back to Manila from Bohol and went straight to the Shangri-La Hotel in Makati. We didn’t celebrate at the actual hotel but rather on top of a relatives apartment building where we could see all of Makati and the celebratory fireworks going on. I had never seen fireworks so big and close in proximity until this NYE. From every corner of the apartment building’s rooftop there were fireworks going on for as far as your eyes could reach.

Right in front of one side of the building were the Rockwell buildings outlined in a bright yellow lighting and this development had the largest fireworks. It was quite the sight indeed!

We ended up back at the hotel around 1:30am and crashed right away because of our travel fatigue.

On New Year’s Day I went shopping (again) and ended the day with a wonderful buffet meal at the Shangri-La, Makati. The buffet had every food you could possibly think of and it all tasted delicious.

Forward one day to January second and I’m flying out to our next destination…can you guess where? It’s closer to Vancouver but definitely still warmer!

Until next time loves.
