Now that we’re free for a few days, we had the chance to go out in the evening. Whereas during ordinary days, normally we just go out to have a quick lunch out or to have coffee somewhere near.

And since collecting stickers (for that famous planner) is over, we decided to have our coffee from The Nest. It is located at the roof top of Vivere hotel. The Nest is one of our favorite place in Alabang where I hang-out with colleagues and friends.

Jen haven’t tried there yet so it was our first choice along the other hotels in Alabang, namely Bellevue, Azumi, Acacia and Crimson hotel.

To the hallways..

Each has something to boast, and them being a few blocks away from each other, gave Alabang residents and its’ nearby neighborhood good options to bring friends and/ or families.

Happy holidays!

One of the detriments of the season is that traffic gets really bad. So instead of having a full dinner at Vivere, we first munch a few at home as we are scared to get stuck (and starving) on the road.

Surprisingly, it took us less than an hour to get to the 31st floor of Vivere hotel.

We also didn’t expect that the place will be as crowded. Though luck’s on our side, we secured a corner of our own.

I remember Jen asking if the pool is operational. I just said maybe in the day time. =)

The corner we’ve got with a nice view of Alabang’s nightscape…

Loved that corner we spotted.

There is a band at that time serenading us with hits from the 80s. And of course I can sing along because I was already a school girl during then. =)

So what we’ve had for that late dinner.

We intend to get nachos as aperitif, however, it is no longer available at that time.

I then ordered for my burger. It came with French fries.

With 3 choices of condiments (mayo, ketchup and coleslaw).

And Jen had pasta in white sauce.

Pasta with grilled chicken strips. We were disappointed that upon revamp of their menus, they removed the pizzas. =(

We both decided to have iced tea instead of coffee, ironically, it felt freezing when you drink something with ice while the wind is as strong as we chose to dine al fresco.

It was good..=)

Not being used to the biting cold, we opted to stay indoor and enjoyed the interiors of the Picasso hall.

Eyed another Picasso boutique hotel in Makati too..

When I saw my favorite machucas, some magnificent and voguish lighting fixtures dangling from the ceiling, soft-cushioned sofas in damask patterns, it actually doubled the fun I was feeling at that time.

Inside Picasso (banquet area)..

I can do that wall, I think! =)

It felt good and sweet going back to a beautiful place that reminds you of good old times spent with good old friends. Wishing to collect more sweet memories here. =)
