I'm sure you've seen or heard this commercial:
I was invited by my friend from work, Ericka, to go to the opening of Solaire Resort and Casino over at Pasay. Having nothing better to do on a weekend, I decided to make rampa with Ericka to the newest attraction in town.
Getting there was such a hassle. Since it's the first day that the place will be fully opened to the public, the traffic was bad! We got there pretty late. The program was over and we didn't get our free goodie bag! :(
Nevertheless, we had fun exploring and touring the place. It was actually quite spectacular. Compared to Resorts World Manila, Solaire is definitely more exquisite. We really felt the exclusivity of the place. The only downside is that RW Manila had something for everyone. Solaire can be pretty limiting in terms of food choices and activities.
Check out our random moments while enjoying getting lost inside Solaire:
|That's us, trying to entertain ourselves while stuck in intense traffic.|
This chandelier really caught our eye.
Some of the restaurants inside:
|If you're feeling like having Japanese.|
|For the meat-lovers.|
|Chinese food fanatics, this is your best bet.|
|This is inside Eclipse Lounge, where we hung out.|
Eclipse Lounge is definitely recommended for those who just want a chill time with their friends and family. Enjoy their wide selection of cocktails, wines, and other drinks. We tried out their mocktails.
|It had green apple slices, muscovado sugar, and mint leaves. Definitely a must-try! :)|
We managed to take a few snapshots inside the casino, but we got asked to stop taking pictures mid-way. :(
Wait, I'm also going to share my makeup look for the day. Used my Benefit Hello Oxygen Wow Foundation and Brow Zings! I went for a simple day look with a punch of bright pink lips to pack some unpredictability into it.
And of course, no entry is complete without a quintessential outfit post. Lately, I stopped planning my outfits and I just go with whatever I blindly pull out from my closet. I haven't worn this red top yet and I wore it over my LBD from, well, my favorite brand, Forever 21. You may notice that I like to mix things up with vintage items with branded ones. I'm not particularly brand-conscious, but I do favor some brands more than others. I'm on a constant evolution in terms of fashion and I stand by all my style choices.
You can never go wrong with an LBD. But knowing me, I can't just go with a plain outfit. Also, the neckline of the dress was pretty low, so I felt the need to cover it up so as not to attract the wrong kind of attention. It was, after all, a formal occasion. Thankfully, this top hasn't had the chance to step out into the world, and today it did.
Dress (used as a skirt): Forever 21
Heels: Charles and Keith
I bid farewell for now but I'll be back for more kwentos and ganaps by tomorrow. Can't wait for my appointment with Barenaked Sugaring Salon in Katipunan! I will also see Atlantis Productions' Piaf tomorrow! It's a busy weekend after all! See you around the city!
