The only reason why we ask other people how their weekend was is so we can tell them about our own weekend. Chuck Palahniuk
Warm comforts, sweet, spicy, a self-indulgent glass of carrot juice and full of surprises. That’s my weekend, spent with selected Sox Bloggers on the hidden hotel of eight-division world champion boxer and a politician Manny Pacquiao and a converted hotelier wife Jinkee Pacquiao.

In an idyllic spot in the middle of Dadiangas heights, Roadhauz Hotel is located. At first look, it’s like a human form stretching out his arms and legs while facing upwards, embracing what tomorrow brings. It was opened first quarter of the year but recently changed its management with new plans and new hopes.
The hotel was divided into 14 standard twin rooms, 8 triple rooms, 8 superior rooms and 10 Roadhauz suites. All rooms are well-furnished with modern amenities like hot and cold shower, cabled LCD TV and wifi Internet access. To decorate the 40 rooms hotel, they exhibit valued portraits of PacMan from one corner to another… razzle-dazzle shots of Jinkee and family pictures can be spotted as well.

Roadhauz hotel is wide awake now (you can join their zumba dance session every Wednesday 5:45 am for free), plus Kee’s cafe is nice addition to it. In this cafe, there comes a selection of hot coffee and refreshing juices, slices of cakes, sandwiches and pastries. Apart from the food, one can watch TV or listen to the music that was not too loud. Wifi is easy to use plus ample of seats available both inside and outside thus, a comfortable place to hangout with family or friends.
With their new chef (a Filipino came from Saipan) you’d love their food, especially the sushi. I thought sushi is the least impressive food, but they’re fine. I mean they generally taste better. What I enjoyed the most was the fish served with a wedge of cooked tomato and pieces of vegetables. We’re lucky enough to taste Roadhauz Hotel and Kee’s Cafe dishes before it is officially served to the public. Do you want sushi? Tempura? Pasta? A full-sheet of new menus will be available soon.
After the heavy food tasting and sipping a healthy glass of carrot juice, here comes a dessert – Jason Veron Francisco (I’m just kidding :D). We chanced upon the opportunity to take photos with this PPB celebrity.
