Well, actually, more like U$30,000.00 or one million five hundred thousand pesoses to regular brown mortals like you and me. Nevertheless, this is still the most expensive hotel package that I have ever heard of in this town. Only available in the month of May, The Peninsula Manila is offering a "Mothers Day" package called "Ultimate Fantasy" worth *gulp* Php1,500,000.00. Yes, you read right. It costs almost as much as a small house and lot in Cainta, Rizal.

Apparently, it includes a three day/two night stay at the Peninsula Suite, round-trip transfers in a brand-new Peninsula Mercedes Benz S-Class limousine, Peninsula champagne, fruit, cheese, Peninsula chocolates and flowers. Also included is a goodie bag from La Prairie Caviar Luxe Collection, salon work at EMPHASIS, an eight-course dinner with wine at Old Manila restaurant, plus champagne breakfast in bed the following day. Also thrown in is a private shopping spree at Jul B. Dizon Jewelery and Louis Vuitton - chauffer driven, of course and assisted by a private shopper while snacking on champagne and canapes. And finally, afternoon tea for two at The Lobby.

Crazy beans. All my mom is getting this year for mother's day is a text greeting.
