Experience Christmas at Pan Pacific Manila

As with all things we do, it's one thing at a time with twenty other things running through our brains simultaneously. But that's the way we work best. Concentrate on one thing, whilst thinking about other goals needing to be reached.
A few more days and it will be Christmas, Bhogs and I have been checking our savings account to spend on buying gifts, for our own kids, our church's kids (being the head of Sunday School), friends' kids with god-kids included and more.  I'm not thinking yet of what to give to friends, relatives and customers, if all those could be summed up it might blow you away.   Only a few decor embellish our home yet, the Christmas tree isn't up...and the list goes on...We did had options of moving away just for the holiday season.   Ssshhh!  We're kinda thinking we might not have enough for everybody so we planned to stay in some hotel or resort.  Well we haven't decided, and I'm sure the Lord will provide, as He always does in amazing ways.
However, I was treated (sort of an early Christmas gift for myself) by friends from hotels as they celebrate the joyous season and count down till Christmas, welcoming friends and clients with gorgeously-ornamented Christmas trees, lobbies trimmed in the reds, greens and gold...festive cocktails and intermingling with illustrious people.
I'm done with Manila Hotel, I still owe Marriott Hotel Manila a substantial write up on  this year's Christmas tree lighting.  And well, Pan Pacific is up!
The first and finest Butler hotel in the Philippines marked the start of the holidays with its annual tree lighting ceremony with guests, clients and partners last December 1 at the Lobby.
The hotel's General Manager, Richard Masselin, started the event with a brief welcome message. An inspiring message from the guest of honor, Mayor Alfredo Lim, then followed.  The hotel’s singing ambassadors, the Butler Chorale, serenaded the guests with their favorite Christmas carols.  The lobby, as would all hotel, was decorated with beautiful ornaments.  What differs them though is their  2012 theme: “Save Energy, Save Lives”, another go green initiative of the hotel. 
Before the turn of the hour, food preparations are done, and what's left of the one who prepared is a tired and sleepy bod,  since we as Filipinos  mark the Christmas eve with  the table full of festive forage. Which is always true about me.  
However, if you are away from your home or feeling like giving yourself a break from the hustle and bustle, Pan Pacific has these to offer...
