Don’t you just love how hotels are dressed up during the holidays? What for the majority of the year are just lodging places, business travel pitstops or staycation venues for many of us, turn into bright, colorful, shiny, shimmering, splendid (!!!) “extensions” of our homes during Christmas. I just LOVE staying at hotels during Christmas and New Year! There’s just something magical when you visit certain hotels during the holidays, don’t you think? 🙂
Seda Hotel Centrio CDO (book your room here) is no exception this year. This well-loved Cagayan de Oro hotel (which I helped launch in 2012, by the way!) held a lighting ceremony of their Christmas tree and it was such an oh-so-lovely event! Complete with great food, ballet dancers, fun music, chorale and lots of familiar, friendly faces.

I wore a simple outfit that night. Just a touch of gold.
After the official lighting ceremony, I then proceeded to Ayala Mall Centrio to check out their well-loved annual lights and sounds show. It was definitely a sight to behold. Watch the video above for a snippet of the show (which runs every half an hour starting late afternoon).
Thank you to Seda CDO for the invite and warmest congratulations to the management of Centrio Mall (my fave in Cagayan de Oro!)
