Pillows Hotel: more than just a budget accommodation in Cebu

Our room was already fitted with four single beds, the two were extras I think, each of which had their customized signature fluffy pillows. Needless to say that the property was named after these babies.

By on May 18, 2013
When you are faced with that kind of predicament, you have every understandable reason to forget your table manners, or in my case, my imaginary dietary restrictions. All my three months worth of gym may have just been undone that very morning.
