Very SUITE Surprise (Anniversary Entry - Part 2)

Since I have no idea where we're going to, Enrico advised me to bring a jacket and a swimwear. Ironic! (kasi usually pag jacket sa Tagaytay yan; pag swimwear sa beach yan- correct?) Ive always been curious, but not this time. Mawawala ang element of surprise. Tiniis kong di magsearch ng possible locations. Basta alam ko somewhere sa South area.

After HEAT, we headed to Alabang. Mabilis lang ang byahe kahit mejo maambon pa din. Sa intersection ng Alabang, we stopped. Sabe nya "Pwede mo bang picturan yung building, kasi dun tayo pupunta." Wow!
Ok, what's with the roof? (yun una kong napansin kasi kakaiba sa mga buildings sa Filinvest area)

look closely at roof top

That's VIVERE Hotel pala. Something new to me dahil im from the northern part of Metro Manila. Unfamiliar na ko sa Las Pinas, Muntinlupa, at Paranaque area.

Are we really staying in this hotel?! We've been traveling pero we dont usually stay in a classAAA accomodation, what more in a 4 or 5-star hotel. So it's our first! Actually, the fact that he prepared for this is already a sweet surprise.

Vivere's wi-fi area, dito muna ko!

After confirming Enrico's reservation, an attendant guided us to our room. To my surprise again, it's a SUITE room! (Later on I found out that Vivere offers Suite rooms only and no less.)

view from 21st floor, nice arki!

Commercial, after 5 minutes, a medical staff knocked on our door to check our health condition. Uso nga naman ang Swine Flu so I think it's OK. Vivere is full of foreign guests pa naman that time kaya dapat i-check.

Finally, photo op na of our room!

Walang class yung shots ko ng Bathtub at Kitchenette so wag na i-post.

un-obstructed view of the city

Pahinga lang sandali, tapos lumabas din kame agad para mag-explore ng hotel. Btw, guests do not have access to all floors unless common area yun or dun ka naka-check-in. Bawal ang loitering. This is good.

view from the other side, ganda ng arki design

Enrico suggested na pumunta kme sa 4th floor. Hhmm, anong meron dun?

hallway to where?

Wow, Lama Pool Place! I know most hotels have swimming pools but not as elegant as this. Classy ang ambience and interiors.

i like this center piece

Please ask me kung gusto nyo ng photo ni Enrico na nagsswimming. Joke!

As per request, magsuot naman daw ako ng dress. Never kasi ako nagskirt! Granted. Request ko naman na isuot nya ang aming Disney shirts!

Disneyland shirts!

We chose to go back in the room para magbonding naman. TV time! Enuf na ang photo op. Enrico showed me a video he made for our anniversary. Sweet no? Siya pa nakakaisip gumawa ng ganun. I had goosebumps as I saw our sinaunang couple shots. Andaming memories. Sana i-upload nya para makita din ng iba, kahit sa FB lang.

I told him I also have a gift for him. I gave him a cutlery set as he wished (and I wished for a travel bag naman) At dahil mas mahal pa ang shipping from Japan, sinabay ko na din ang bday gift. I also made a photoflip for him. Hindi to collage kasi di ako marunong gumawa nun. Yung Fridates, Saturdates, Sundates entry ko, yun ang ginawa kong fotoflip. I like the look on his face as he gets his gifts. Lalo na yung binabasa nya yung captions.

two gifts kasi bday nya sa 17!

Oh well, it's been a day. Tulog time na. (though di ako nakatulog, so di na din siya nakatulog. Pasensya naman, buhay call center ako, remember?)

I know there's still more sa rooftop so sana di umulan para it wont ruin his surprise. And God is good. After 5 days of non-stop raining, hindi umulan ng araw na yun.

For me, this is the best part of the hotel. Im impressed.

we miss you sunshine!
a breakfast at Skylounge (wow!)

Sobrang ganda ng place. Im expecting na maganda ang view kasi rooftop. Pero the place itself is fabulous. The whole hotel is romantic and elegant, pero winner tong Skylounge.

infinity pool
very nice dining area
oh yes, im a lucky girl!

Breakfast time. Super na-enjoy ko ang Asian, European, at American dishes. Ang sarap! I would definitely want to go back here someday. Highly recommended.

seafood pasta, fish fillet, eggplant parmigiana, ham and sausages,
chicken (i forgot), beef stir fry!
break ni dude
mango, cereal, waffle with walnuts, and yogurt

Aside sa main entrees, meron ding Ramen, Siomai, Congee. Different kinds of bread. Fruits and yogurt section. Garden Salad. Salmon. Waffles. Cereals. Ang sarap!

What more can I ask? This anniversary celebration is a blast! Thank you sooo much!

we just turned one!

Setting aside the fabulous celebration, surprises, and minus all the fanciness; I simply want to tell you I love you and Im very happy we're together.

the donG said...

i like vivere. i stayed there one time for three days ang sarap ng breakfast buffet kasi may japanese food.

last time i went there was when a friend celebrated her birthday there.

the infinity pool at the penthouse bar is really nice but i wonder if someone would even dare to swim. maybe because it's simply for display.

congratulations to the both of you! astig choice. you should make a food blog.

Chyng said...

@sir lloyd,
im so overwhelmed sa announcement mo. im sooo happy for you and grace! nice couples like you deserve that gift.

@juyjuy,
di macaido uso sa bohol ang peak rates. pero guarantee na may slots pa kesa pag summer. dumaluan is the cheapest. chek mo website.

enrico said...

im happy that you really enjoyed the experience. lalo na pag firsts. hehe. sayang dahil overnight lng tayo dun. ansarap pa naman magbuhay mayaman. hehe. it was a great challenge to find a nice place to celebrate d anniversary without really going that far. salamat na lang kay citiguide at nabasa ko ang breakfast buffet nila na worth 570feysus lang. thanks for being so appreciative. sorry wla pa yung gift ko. sobrang na surprise ako sa chopsticks n orange range cd. pero syempre, peyborit ko yung pictures with the love letters. hehe.

sayang di mo nabanggit na pumunta tayo ng atc na nkagetup pa rin tapos sa jollibee lang tayo nagdinner. hehe. although, nagtitipid na tayo kahit papano, natuwa pa rin ako kse saksi si jollibee sa mga dates natin. haha. kaya mahalagang part din sya ng anniv natin.

ngapla, dahil sa paghi-heat natin, nakakantsawan na ko ng mga kapatid at pinsan ko na magpa-heat daw ako. hehe.

happy anniversary ulit! love yah :9

@lloyd congrats ha. salamat pala sa pagpapaalala. di bale, ngyon lng yan kse 1st anniv. hehe. yung susunod na bunggang surprise sa 1st wedding naman namin. ay isang beses lng pka yun. juke! :9

Allen Yuarata said...

sometimes I just wish I was your son. Haha! saya ng buhay!

makis said...

everytime i go to your blog,'something has changed in me forever'. very nice, you live your purpose.

Rej said...

nanghinayang ako bigla dahil hindi ako nakasama sa Vivere ng may company event kami. Dati akala ko pa ang spelling ng hotel auy "Viveret" with silent t. haha! parati ko naman nadadaanan papasok ewan ko ba bakit gustong gusto ko linalagyan ng t sa huli ang vivere. un lang gusto ko lang ishare. :)

Pura said...
