Enjoying the posh-ness

Finally! After 2 months of planning, thanks to my small group sister Trish, our overnight stay at a 3-star hotel, Crowne Plaza came into fruition.

This group has been meeting up 3x a month to discuss life related topics from a biblical perspective. A weekend of pampering though was a well deserved break for all of us.

Meeting up excitedly at the mall we maximized the fancy amenities with as many crazy shots as we could think of. We had two rooms, one was a double bed room and another was a honeymoon suite! Boy was I glad I was in the double bed room. The honeymoon suite was hilarious from single women's standpoint. The toilet had transparent walls! from the bathtub through the showers. Talk about intimate. We had to get creative on how to relieve ourselves from there, choosing to shut the door and the lights so that whoever was doing their deed would not be reflected in the mirror.

Read between the lines
And yes we had more than one instance of screaming when one accidentally walked in on another.

After getting a bit of shuteye with Ces, we all shared a hearty dinner at a popular local restaurant, Max's, known around the globe for their fried chicken. Sarap to the bones! (Delicious to the bones)

Nobody got enticed to go night swimming in the hotel pool that closed way early at 8pm.

We stayed up till dawn discovering how to play the highly intellectual 'Cranium' gameboard I brought. Through this we discovered who was born reading an encyclopedia, good at spelling, clay molding or charades. Next was playing the 'Icebreaker' which threw questions that allowed us to get to know each other on a more personal level .

Just goofing around
Such as 'what traits do you like best about your parents?' 'is being single an advantage to you now?', etc. All this was enjoyed while bingeing on tons of junkfood, egg pie and slugging down the Apple sparkler I got as a token from a speaking engagement 2 days before.

An early wake up call at 8am was from Gracie, ugh! being so excited to have breakfast together and have a few more hours to chat before we checked out of the hotel. Breakfast was feasting on sausages, butter, strawberry jam, bread, the remainder of the egg pie and the complimentary coffee and tea from the hotel.

The posh hotel really helped us relax, a luxurious weekend checked in was the way to go, add on great company and you're all set. One thing I would have wanted though was to enjoy the ergonomic bed more by getting more sleep to make up for my sleep deprived week.

When will my reflection show who I am inside?....

We then went on to have the Sunday service at the conveniently adjoined Robinson's mall and after sharing lunch and another round of pictures went on our separate ways. Worrying over our excess junk food and soda was resolved by keeping it for our street kids outreach project this month, perfect timing.

It's amazing how you continue to get to know people regardless of how many days, months or even years you've been together. And having a common faith spells all the difference.

I owe the pictures to my creative girl scout friend who had her handy dandy camera at the time, Cristy.
