with W and the Boyz
DHS Annual Retreat, Day 2 (see previously 7.344 Bibimbap …).
So long as I’m being put up at one of the snazzier hotels in Manila, the W and the Boyz have joined me for a staycation.
Rather than join in the official dinner with my colleagues — honestly, the single factor that prompted me to go the other way was that it was being held outdoors (no air-conditioning) — I opted to enjoy a quiet (air-conditioned) dinner with my family.
The food was good. Perhaps a tad overpriced at 3,300 PHP per person, definitely fun in variety, and good in taste and quality.
But god how I hate buffets, especially the good ones, because they make me feel compelled to get my money’s worth — and 3,300 PHP is a lot of compulsion.
