Win A Staycation For Two At The Linden Suites!

I was up all night to get lucky. With the karaoke microphone.

Midnight, the after-effects of merlot and moscato were depicted by off-beat dancing. Were heard through off-key singing.

No matter how hammered, mic hoggers were on standby.

There were about seventeen travel bloggers in our Linden Suites one-bedroom suite. Fifteen Filipinos, one American, and one German. They all came for an event organized by The Linden Suites' Marketing Communications Manager Michael Anthony Sagaran and Melo Villareal of outoftownblog.com which I dubbed "Pajama Party Wherein We Don't Wear Pajamas".

One of The Linden Suites' refurbished suites. Space matters.
 
On our agenda: Eat, drink, sing. Which we all accomplished. And then some.

After which, we crashed in our respective suites to experience The Linden Suites' refurbished rooms. Except for one, all suites on the ninth floor were assigned to our party (slightly similar to how it went down during our first staycation).

linden5
The buffet spread. Cebu’s Original Lechon Belly, undoubtedly, was the star of the table.
 
Being one of the early birds, I was able to peek into every type of refurbished suite the hotel's currently offering. Each suite boasts the same massive floor space. The same sophisticated design, but with a more modish touch. And all of the suites' rooms now got bathtubs!

Just every bit ideal for a staycation.
 
linden3
The rowdy crew. Pinoy travel bloggers with Kate of www.adventurouskate.com and Sab of www.justonewayticket.com.
 
You could experience The Linden Suites' refurbished awesomeness also! Join our contest and get the chance to win an overnight stay for two in a deluxe room. Includes brekkie at Mesclun.

Prize is transferable and winner must book in advance.

Just "like" a bunch of Facebook pages, leave a comment below, and share the news to others. Let Rafflecopter lead the way.
 
a Rafflecopter giveaway
 
Open to Philippine residents. Contest runs from March 5, 2014 to March 26, 2014. Winner will be announced on March 27.

Good luck, fellow travel junkies!
