[Insert lulz story here.]
Then we ended up in a hotel room in Makati with a rooftop pool because of [insert lulz reasons here].
Browsing Agoda's online hotel reservation system, I chanced upon BSA Suites Hotel Makati. It was reasonably priced, near Greenbelt, and, as mentioned, has a rooftop pool. Astoria Plaza would've been waaaaaay better if only there were not fully booked that weekend. But then, we don't need fancy rooms because we'll all end up drunk anyway. All we want is a decent place to cook bacon/spam/eggs, drink, swim, and sleep. Quick tip: book via Agoda if you need cheap hotel accommodations. A studio room in BSA Suites starts at USD65, but we got our room for only USD45!
BSA Suites is rather easy to find. Just along Palanca st., there's a bar named Toyz at the first floor and a Ministop convenience store across the building. Mercury Drugstore, KFC, Chowking, and Jollibee are also within walking distance. BSA don't serve breakfast, or any food for that matter, so having these stores nearby proves to be very helpful.

Check-in was a breeze. I just showed my printed Agoda voucher, signed some papers, and was finally handed our room key card. Within minutes, we were inside our spacious room. Of course, the first thing I checked was the kitchenette. There's a fridge, microwave oven, electric stove, water heater, rice cooker, plus several plates, pans, and utensils. Oh yey, our spam/bacon/egg breakfast will go just as planned!
I'm the one checking the fridge, haha
Tequila, Gin, Bacardi, and Ketchup not included
We already managed to trash the room. Nice.
At night, we had dinner and drinks by the rooftop pool. Surprisingly, the whole area was clean and there's a cctv camera
so security guards could watch nubile girls in skimpy swimsuits for the guests' safety. We also have a kick-ass view of Makati-at-night, perfect for some bokeh <3

Oh yes, we had fun.
