Red Ginger in City of Dreams Manila

During my staycation in Crown Towers, T and I have dinner in Red Ginger.  It's just one of the many restaurants in City of Dreams Manila but I like it because it's open 24 hours!

Staycation at Crown Towers in City of Dreams Manila.

There are three hotels in City of Dreams Manila-- Nobu Hotel, Hyatt, and Crown Towers.  They say Crown Towers is the most luxurious of the three and fortunately, my mom let me tag along with her and her friends during their staycation there.

My Birthday Dinner at Sundara Restaurant in Four Seasons Resort Bali.

For our last dinner in Bali, my plan is to have seafood ala dampa style and watch the sun set in Jimbaran Bay.  I have no particular restaurant in mind so T and I walk along the shore to look for one.

Finally, I decide on this casual restaurant that has good reviews on the internet but T said that since we won't be spending my birthday together,  he'd rather that we celebrate it at a posh restaurant that evening.   We aren't dressed for it and only have beachwear on but I'm all for spontaneity so we go to Four Seasons Resort, a five-star hotel at the end of Jimbaran Bay.

As soon as we enter, a hostess greets me and T.  It is only 5:30pm and we are told that Sundara Restaurant won't open until 6 so she leads us to the bar lounge first, which offers a great view of another spectacular Bali sunset.
