day 1 (PM): check-in and "the bar".

From Bukidnon, we endured another 2-hour van ride back to Cagayan de Oro. We had reservations at D'Budgetel, a simple, no-fuss hotel that offers very affordable rates.

Tetah at the reception area.
Look, nakatip-toe! Mataas ba masyado? :P

For the price, the place is nice and clean. The interiors are plain and simple, and I like it that way. No baduy furniture, floral curtains, and anything that screams Aling Dionisia in my head. LOL. And the bathroom looks okay, too--no dirty tiles, no kalawang sa faucets, sinks, etc.--which is a HUGE plus in my book.

After a few hours, we were all freshened up and ready for dinner. We planned to check out foodie places along Limketkai Mall and we ended up at the resto strip right across.

CDO's version of Metrowalk or El Pueblo.

And because Daks wanted to eat chicken and the place was packed with happy diners, we decided to eat here:

The 1-pc chicken meal.
My verdict: 3 out of 5 stars.
It tastes good, but nothing spectacular. And the fries? Only 3 pieces! Sheesh.

Since we needed to be up early the next day, we opted to go back and have drinks at The Tree House, D'Budgetel's resto/bar.

We love the lighting!
And being the mababaw that we are, imagine our fascination with the lighted table!

Carried away, much? Haha! CHILL.

And that concludes DAY 1!
