Take an Extreme Adventure or Just Chill at Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa

The last weekend of February had us driving to UPLB to fetch Ralph who went on an overnight debate competition. Since February 25 was declared as an official holiday, we thought that it would be the best time to spend the night at a resort in Los Baños. It was a last minute decision so I failed to reserve us a room at the Makiling Onsen Spa. Thankfully, Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa was just a few hundred meters and a phone call away.

It was actually my husband first discovered Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa. He saw a viral post on Facebook about it and tagged me. I didn't realize that it was also located in Los Baños until our car drove past its signage along the highway. Luck was on our side when I booked because there were still a few rooms available. As the night passed, we saw guests coming and checking in the rooms beside ours.

Free WiFi at The Podium

The Podium has finally joined the roster of malls in the metro that provide free Wi-Fi access to its customers. Bloggers convened in the 2nd Level Atrium last May 31, 2009 to test the mall's Wi-Fi signal strength. I brought my laptop and PSP to the event. The connection strength was excellent in my laptop that I was even able to download Open Office files at high speed. The connection via my PSP was favorable, too. I even tried to test the signal strength inside the ladies' room, hahaha!

This is another good news for people like me who love going to malls that are classy and quiet as The Podium. Do not be fooled by its size. The Podium almost has everything under its roof. Aside from its chic boutiques and restaurants, the mall also houses Watsons, National Bookstore's Betsellers, Smart Wireless Center and Globe Business Center, and a two-theater cinema. Not bad, don't you think?

The Podium is located along 18 ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.

That's just at the back of Megamall and I always get poor connection there. Might as well transfer to The Podium, instead. Thanks for the tip.
