U Pension in Dumaguete City

I had the chance to catch some zzzs in the newest pension house in town--U Pension. While the complimentary room (2 single beds, a writing desk, en-suite toilet and bath, free wifi and flat screen CATV), our home for two nights, was a tad cramp, the windows made up for the small space. It was good that the windows empty to the scenic Silliman campus. The bed, I must admit, was first-class. In no time, I fell asleep!

Between catnaps, I took some photos for the magazine (coming out in January. watch out for it!). This is Ron, the editor-at-large.

Then, late into the night, my fellow writer Magenta arrived. She was dressed to the nines. I just had to take her photo at the roofdeck.

The lines of the fire exit caught my eye. I asked Ron to pose.

We had a great time unleashing our hidden voice talents while Ian, the editor-in-chief, was away. Magenta needed it for a Christmas party. Here is fellow writer Anna joining us.

And of course, the best part, as it has always been, is food! This is the red velvet cake baked to perfection by Sir Warly.

As of this writing, there are still articles that needed tweaking. I hope to finish them all before Christmas. So, help me god.

By the way, it is worth mentioning that the staff of U Pension are well-trained: attentive, efficient and courteous. Overall, the whole property was squeaky clean the whole time we were there. Personally, the rates which start at Php1,300 (good for two) is rather hefty in Dumaguete standards.

(U Pension is located along Silliman Avenue, just beside Jo's Chicken)

  1. I think I am more impressed with Magenta than with U Pension. Just kidding. Merry Christmas!
