We live in a very fast-paced world, and balancing the demands of daily life can be pretty stressful. After our work, we just want to detach ourselves from the hustle and bustle of city life. When the idea of having a sweet escape by the beach becomes quite impossible to squeeze into your schedule, why not consider having a staycation?
Staycation is to break out of your normal routine without venturing too far from your home. While there are some individuals who prefer staying at the comfort of their own homes, isn’t it a great idea to have a change of environment from time to time?
Just like when traveling somewhere for a vacation, a staycation is about relaxation and enjoyment. It’s about “me” time or “us” time, whichever the case may be. So imagine going to a place where you can just lie down all day, pamper yourself with your favorite DIY face mask (for product recommendations please see my notes below). Or, take a long hot shower with a nice body scrub and finish off with your favorite lotion. You may grab your favorite comfort food (like for me my comfort food is a big tub of NESTLE Strawberry Yogurt) and watch your favorite TV series or a Netflix movie. It’s a perfect “me” weekend no deadlines no distractions.
As young adults, the idea of staying in a hotel for a staycation can be intimidating financially. Not all of us can afford a night in a nice hotel with great service and amenities.
Thankfully, the travel gods have looked down upon us and blessed us with Airbnb.
I found Airbnb easy to use when looking for a place to stay. You only need to input the place you wanted to stay, inclusive dates and the number of guests, then it’ll list the recommended accommodations for you.

The Currency is a premier mixed-use commercial and residential property located in the business district of F. Ortigas, Pasig City.
I find the place safe and quiet inside despite of the busy streets of Ortigas. CCTV and security guard is available 24×7.
Comfort & Cleanliness
It was very clean with all the things you need for a good stay. The unit was so relaxing, neat and everything is in place. The unit also has a semi-equipped kitchen with a fridge, induction cooker, electric kettle and tableware.
Weekends fly by so quickly and making the most of it can be quite a challenge. The best way to level-up your weekend is to come up with a plan that’s both time and cost-efficient.

So ano, G na!
