It's been almost five years since the last time I've visited the Philippines, luckily Illustrado Magazine had a Giveaway in collaboration with Emirates Airlines, they had an Instagram Competition and the prize at stake is a 2-way ticket to the Philippines and yours truly won the prize and got an upgrade to Business Class. In celebration of my 31st Birthday as well I spend around 2 weeks in the Philippines after a month of Social Media Detox (I will not get into details, but everything is all great now). After spending a week with my Lola in Bulacan, I've stayed in Makati for easier meet-ups with my Blogger friends.

Inspired by a creative genius, The Picasso is where vintage meets novelty, where a hotel experience is transformed into an affair with the arts. Located at the Makati Central Business District, this boutique hotel is the ideal starting point for exploring the vibrant energy of our city life. This is The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, where art and passion live.

I am an Art Lover, so staying in The Picasso Makati is like living in a Museum, surrounded by Arts, colors, and patterns. An Art Sanctuary indeed!

The artsy way of waking up...

Pablo Bistro

Pablo Bistro represents the essence of global gourmet gastronomy. It is an exciting fusion of cuisines inspired by the sunlit countries on the coast of the Mediterranean, where only the best and freshest ingredients compose every home-cooked meal. Pablo continues to revolutionize its menu, leading to innovative and flavorful dishes with that quintessential Filipino twist to indulge your passion and taste for good food. This multicultural assortment is reminiscent of the classic European bistro menu, with small and large plates perfect for wine and cocktail pairings.

We had a delightful Filipino Breakfast, the presentation of each dishes are impeccably into perfection. Sumptuous and we kept asking for more of their coffee via buzzer as we sat outside along Salcedo Street. 

Since it was a sunny Saturday, we visited the Salcedo Market, I met that day Vince Uy and Victor Basa (Philippines TV Personalities). It was fun and exhausting (but purely fun) cause it was too sunny, but we enjoyed trying some Filipino delicacies in the Market and I also took home one of Victor's Happy Plant. 


Altro Mondo

The Picasso prides itself in its awe-inspiring selection of artwork on display around the hotel, as well as in its in-house gallery on the third floor curated by Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea. The gallery features monthly exhibitions by up-and-coming local and foreign talents, as well as work by established Filipino artists in painting, sculpture, and photography. Harking back to its namesake, The Picasso has become a true venue for the arts and its promotion in the country. For more information, go to

My 3 day and a 2-night stay in The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences is truly wonderful, from the staff to ambiance, food to amenities, it is absolutely The Art of Great Stay.
