How I Spent the First Day of 2018

Sofitel Manila’s Spiral has always been a special place for me to celebrate milestones and special occasions. It’s actually one of those few buffet places where the top-notch quality and unique gastronomical and sensorial experience actually justifies the price!

Welcoming 2018, they had a special New Year’s Brunch with live music and free-flowing French sparkling wine on top of the 21 dining ateliers (including the famed temperature controlled Cheese Room) from 12nn to 3pm for P4,215 net per person. Since my sister hosted their amazing New Year Countdown the night before, our group was treated to this amazing experience as well! Thanks, Janeena!!

Dinner the night before (December 31) was fantastic—Food was endless and taste was as usual, amazing. However, through no fault of Spiral, as it was understandable, there were some items that made a repeat during the brunch. (I mean, how can you not repeat the fresh lobster and the variety of pastries?) It was great though, because I got to sample more of their other offerings.

Anniversary Celebration

I had such a great time last Feburary 8, when Nox and I celebrated our 5th anniversary together! YAY. I won’t elaborate as much and would let the photos speak for themselves but man, that Spiral at Sofitel was definitely worth it.
We also had a quick (a bit late) lunch at Lola Cafe + Bar of Dynamite ( Deep-fried green chill fingers and cheese with salsa dip) and Fish and Chips (Three pieces beer batter fish and homemade tartar sause). We deliberately ate lightly for lunch as we had a spa appointment right after. Then it was off to stuff ourselves (daintily).
I’ve also been dabbling at pointed pen calligraphy lately (and a bit of water-colour as well). For more about calligraphy, visit The Curious Calligrapher! They have a wealth of information for beginners and the calligraphy circle is very, very friendly. 🙂
