Cheers for the New Year at the Imperial Palace!





First off, Happy Hearts Day to all of you guys! Whatever your "status" is, hope you enjoyed the day all the same. Since I don't really have any romantic dating pictures or anything to share with you tonight, let me share instead another red-letter day that brought about good cheers and tidings for everyone.

I was lucky enough to have been one of the few bloggers invited  to the Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa's  remarkable Chinese New Year fete a few weeks back. I trooped on over with my good friends Kristine, Paula, Dominic, Ivan and my sister, all of whom gamely wore festive colors in the spirit of good luck. The premiere island destination spared no expense in ringing in the Year of the Water Dragon in grand fashion that remained true to the Chinese spirit-- from the traditionally vibrant and colorful dragon dance, to the Yee Sang toss for prosperity, down to Chinese song and dance numbers, and lastly to the magnificent fireworks display that lit up the Mactan skyline. We chowed down on generous helpings of seafood, grilled deli and meats, as well as their scrumptious Asian dishes from their famous dinner buffet. Definitely an experience for the books! Thanks a million Imperial Palace! Here's to hoping for lasting prosperity for this truly magnificent hotel.


Thank you to Manna Alcaraz of the PR Department for the invite!
