Who doesn’t like drinking hot cocoa on a chilly morning? On your way to Fort Worth, DD and I stopped at her favorite hamburger chain, In-N-Out, in Garland to eat brunch. It was still a bit chilly (temperature) in March (Spring Break). And I am not comfortable driving without taking anything warm or hot. So this hot cocoa was just perfect. And best of all, it was FREE. Yup, In-N-Out offered free hot cocoa that time. We used our free hamburger or cheeseburger coupons we received from the reading program at Smith Public Library (Wylie, TX). What a deal!
We surely enjoyed this year’s Spring Break. My darling daughter was satisfied with all our adventures we had this week. One of her favorites was our hotel room accommodation in Fort Worth. We did not go back to the hotel where we stayed last year because the room smelled like fried fish. She even called it “fried fish hotel”. Lol
Anyway, we stayed at Hyatt Place Cityview Fort Worth this time. The room rate was $3 higher than the “fried fish hotel”. I grabbed it anyway since we wanted to try to stay in a new hotel this year.
It was a good decision because the room was nice. The living area is big and they gave us two double beds and one sofa bed room. The downside was, the room has a small closet and small bathroom. The front office seems kinda ‘cold’ but we enjoyed staying at Hyatt Place. 🙂
DD even told me she wanted to buy one of the rooms so she can live there. I said hopefully when she finished college and get a high paying job or high earning business in the future. 🙂
We are back at Red Roof Inn in Irving. My family and I, together with my brother-in-law, are going on a holiday a.k.a summer vacation. We are going to the Philippines again. This time my brother-in-law is going with us. He had been to Asia three years ago but not yet to the Philippines. So this is going to be his first time visiting my country. I lived in one of the islands in the Visayas Region called Leyte. We will be taking a domestic flight going there from Manila.
We leave tomorrow morning via Korean Air this time because we are building up our mileage points again. Gladly I was able to update our Skypass membership accounts before getting our tickets issued. Our passports are recent, hotel and resort bookings are paid and confirmed, and my Naturalization Certificate is attached inside my passport. Copies of the travel documents, itinerary and contacts are distributed in all of our check in baggage. Now we are all set. We’re very excited to see family and friends again.
This vacation is a celebration of my 10th wedding anniversary. And part of this celebration, we are all going to Coco Beach Resort in Oriental Mindoro. DH and I have been considering this getaway to Coco Beach for our anniversary. I am sure it is going to be great.
After this post, and some online tasks, I am going to relax and prepare myself for a long a**-burning flight tomorrow.
Thank you all for safe travel wishes. *heart*
