Surprise of surprises, this month I was able to catch up on my magazine subscriptions. All of them! I’m up to date for once! I can’t be more thrilled. Now, I can tackle the pile of books bought eons ago and have been waiting to be opened.
But I’m not going to keep on with updating you about my reading saga.
For years, I have been subscribing (among many others) to Conde Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines. With me and my husband’s penchant for travel, these two magazines have become sources of inspiration as we mapped out and continue to plot our itineraries from one destination to another all these years.
I was really happy to take note of the inclusion of a couple of properties in the Philippines to the 2011 Winners of the World’s Best Awards and I’m one proud Pinoy.
Boracay is voted Number 4 overall on the Top Islands category.
Boracay ranks Number 2 all over Asia.
And the Top 100 Hotels:
Discovery Shores in Boracay holds the Number 55 position overall. Not bad, right?
Around Asia, Discovery Shores is Number 8.
And, among city hotels in Asia, Makati Shangri-la (the wedding ceremony and reception venue of our wedding in the Philippines) is ranked Number 11. The property must be well-kept all through the years.
