Post New Year Stay at Green Sun Hotel Makati

It was mid-week of the first week of the first month of the year. And as if to further punctuate that the holidays were really over, I felt the need to extend my vacation for another night before facing the great possibilities of the next twelve months.

My friend Mai and I booked a one night stay at Green Sun Hotel after staying at Alcoves the previous two nights. The property was at a quieter location in Makati, along Chino Roces Extension, tucked away inside a renovated old car warehouse.

A Chill Pre-Christmas Staycation at Alcoves

My company decided to hold its annual holiday party at an events place in ParaƱaque City. When the venue was announced a few months back, I started planning my logistics since the party ends at 12 MN and I reside in Laguna which was about an hour and half from Manila. It was too late to go home by public commute so I decided to spend the weekend in Makati for my safety and at the same time catch some last minute r & r before the holiday craze starts rolling.

It was less than two weeks before our party. I still wasn't able to find a place which suits my needs. I preferred it to be within the Makati business district. I also wanted it to be near shopping malls so I could do some last minute Christmas shopping. And lastly, I wanted the room to be quiet and nice because I needed to finish all my writing assignments before end of the year.
