When we asked Mia last year how she wants to celebrate her birthday, she suggested that we just have a staycation. I initially thought of having a “small” playdate/party with her friends but there was not much time to prepare and organize a party. So, I just tried to look for a hotel where we can celebrate her 5th birthday – we were contemplating on booking Shangri-La in Makati since they have “glamping” setup for kids, but we found a better deal at the newly opened Shangri-La at the Fort in BGC. I got very excited since the hotel has an indoor play area exclusive to members and in-house guests – Adventure Zone – and it will be a great surprise for my little girls!
We didn’t tell Mia that we have booked a hotel, we thought it would be great to just surprise her! So after her Friday class and birthday celebration with her classmates, we picked her up and off we went to our extended weekend staycation.
