MANILA: My Review of Seda Hotel, Bonifacio Global City

July 30, 2023

My Review of Seda Hotel, 
Bonifacio Global City

LOCATION: Very good. It's very near good restaurants, shopping malls and offices. Everything you need is walkable from Seda Bonifacio Global City.

SERVICE::Check in was smooth and fast. We requested wine glasses and it arrived immediately. 

ROOM: The standard room was great in terms of cleanliness, spaciousness and amenities

However, I suggest that at least 2 bottles of water per person should  be given per day instead of just one. It's inconvenient asking for more everytime. 

The pillows are not that great and needs to be changed. 

There are no hand towels in the toilet. 

But the basic amenities that go with the standard room is sufficient for a comfortable stay. See photos below. 

Food Stalls at the Food Court of Medical City Hospital, Pasig

THE MEDICAL CITY HOSPITAL, PASIG: My Experience at the Ambulatory Care Center

My Experience at the Ambulatory Care Center 

I arrived at 640am on a Saturday at the ambulatory care center of Medical City to have my annual blood tests done. My no. was 4033 when I arrived. (the no in the display is 4019). Twenty five minutes later, I was called at the cashier. Twenty minutes after that, I was called for extraction. I was out by 730am. Not bad! I was done in less than an hour.

Note that if you parked your car at the basement parking, they no longer have a cashier at the exit. You need to pay at automated pay stations on designated locations in the hospital before going out the exit.

SINGAPORE: What to Order at Matchaya

July 18, 2023


Glad to be back at Matchaya! I first tasted this in March 2020 before the pandemic lockdown. For matcha lovers, this is the best place to go for your matcha fix. But for my daughter who's not a fan of matcha, she says that she would go back for the Signature Koicha Milk she ordered because IT'S THAT GOOD! It seems that for both matcha lovers and non-matcha lovers, this is a place you can both hang out together.

SINGAPORE HOTEL REVIEW: Why I Love Fraser Place Robertson Walk

July 15, 2023


LOCATION: Location is superb. It's very near the MRT (450m walk), and several bus stops (250m walk). It has a grocery nearby. There's a wine store beside it (Wine Connection) that sells good and budget friendly wines. It's also very near several restaurants serving various cuisines.

SERVICE: Housekeeping is exemplary. They are very responsive to the requests of guests. Rooms are kept very clean.

ROOMS: The rooms are very spacious and have a very good layout. It is as beautiful as shown in the photos in their site. We got the 3 bedroom premier for 6 adults. But drainage in the shower must be addressed. It drains slowly when we were there February 2023. That's why I only gave 4 stars rating for the room. I didn't put any photos of the room anymore coz it looks the same as the one in the website. Check out their website at for more photos and details

TOILETS AND BATH: It's very hard to find accommodations in Singapore that will provide 2 toilets and bath for 6 people in one property or room, unless you book 2 hotel rooms for 6 people or 3 hotel rooms for 6 people. Since we want to be together in one room, this property is a find. When the kids were small, we used to get by with one toilet and bath for the 6 of us. But when the kids became adults, we now need at least 2 toilets and bath for the 6 of us. Otherwise, it would be ages before we can go out of the hotel.

BREAKFAST: I love their buffet breakfast. It is not as wide in variety as a hotel breakfast but they are sufficient to cover the preferences of a family of different age groups. They are delicious and cooked very well. They have American, Continental and Asian breakfast. I especially love their croissant and cappuccino. They are also very generous with their breakfast. They provide lunch boxes in their room so you can bring back breakfast to your room if you wish. They also provide disposable cups so you can also bring back coffee to your room if you wish.

For cheapest rates, check out Fraser Place Robertson Walk  HERE

FREE SHUTTLE: They have free shuttle buses to Orchard and Suntec.

OTHER AMENITIES: The gym is sufficient in size and equipment. The pool is great even for small kids.

The only con is that you need to book this property for at least 6 nights. 

We love the place so much so we booked it again for our Singapore trip next year.
