Okay. So I am very busy with the preparation for our upcoming vacation. Though my husband accomplished his task -book and buy the international tickets-a few important bookings or reservations have to be done.
As of this moment, I am communicating with the hotel staff of the Oriental Legazpi Hotel in the Philippines. I am trying to book for an overnight stay at The Oriental Legazpi Hotel. My husband watched a show on television (Filipino Channel) where it featured the hotel. It is a 5-star hotel located in Legazpi, Albay that features the main attraction of the province, the beautiful Mount Mayon. The volcano known for its perfect cone.
I visited and tried making a reservation on the hotel’s website. It went great but the thing is, the deposit you make online which I believe is 10% of the total cost, is non-refundable regardless of changing the dates of stay. So contacted their Manila office and I am currently making a reservation. Hopefully I will be able to get a room for December. We all know that it’s a high season so booking ahead of time has a big chance of getting a confirmation. I think the hotel reservations staff is telling me that there is an available room on the date I provided. Wonderful! Our communication is thru email and I am confident that everything’s fine.
The reason why we are going to Albay is because we will be visiting my husband’s sponsored child. As you know, my husband is sponsoring two Filipino children thru Children’s International. He is supporting them since they were eight years old. Now that they are turning 18, it is very important to be able to visit these kids. Actually, we already visited the first one who lives in Manila when my husband and I were still dating. That was five years ago. The second one who is living in Albay will be visited for the first time during our vacation in December. I am excited to meet her. And, I am excited to see the Mount Mayon as well.
