Seda Hotel, Ayala Center Cebu
Here in Cebu City with my family for a reunion with our relatives from Barili and Cebu tomorrow. My sister from Makati also flew in with her family and they are staying in a hotel in Mactan. My sister from Negros Occ. also came. My younger brother cannot make it because he is still recovering from a surgery. My sister in Makati has Seda vouchers, she gave 4 to me and my other sister to cover 2 rooms for 2 nights each, I will pay for another night.
There are 11 Seda Hotels in the Philippines (https://sedahotels.com/our-hotels/) and I've stayed only in Seda Sentro, Cagayan de Oro City and today, in Seda Ayala Center, Cebu City. I like both. I can't find my photos of Seda Sentro. I have a breakfast meeting once in Seda BGC, nice food and place.
Seda Ayala Center reception area. Nice cool place.

Skyway stage 3, views of QC, SJ, Mandaluyong, Makati
While I have passed by Skyway Stage 3 (Buendia to Balintawak, NLEX, back) many times, I have not taken photos of the environment simply because I'm driving and holding the steering wheel. Today I took a bus and it's taking the Skyway, so I was able to hold my camera phone. Some views here of Quezon City (QC), San Juan, Mandaluyong and Makati from the skyway northbound.
