Since Leoncio’s work schedule these days is starting to give me headache over again, he ensure to spoil me on Sunday’s, which means he would give in to any of my request readily.
This time he willingly drives to the Newport City and at Resort World Manila to be exact. It was our first time to visit and prior to this occasion I had our membership completed online to avoid the inconvenience of filling up application forms. In fact, this is the second time I applied online, I remember doing the same form way back 2010 when RWM was newly-opened.
Parking is ample as you have the option to park at the building or at the open lot facing the mall. Although it’s a little bit of challenge when you picked to park at the Newport Mall as the entrance and exit has the same route. I don’t know but for new drivers this is definitely not recommended.
Because we are availing of Lucky Buffet at Mercado for new members, we have to pick up our RWM membership IDs and vouchers at the membership lounge area. They have to take our pictures and without delay our RWM IDs were ready. It reminded me of our Macau trip last year, wherein we availed of Casino memberships too.

And together with our IDs we got the entitlement to avail the Mercado Breakfast Buffet at P88++ only or Lunch Buffet at P188++ only. In addition, we were allowable to one free spin at Spin to Win. However, we were not able to avail the free spin that day because it’s already passed its time slot of 6am-12nn daily. Anyhow, the vouchers are still valid until 4-Mar and we might consider dropping by over the weekend.
While Mercado is located inside the Casino there are rules to follow and one of them is no camera allowed. I managed to slip my digicam inside but didn’t have the guts to use it, hehehe. I feared that someone might stop me and end up embarrassed so I dutifully complied. Meanwhile, cam phone was permitted so please excuse the blurred photos of the fare we consumed at Mercado.
Though Mercado is themed Filipino, there were Japanese, Chinese and Indonesian-Malay station available to complement your liking.
From the Japanese station –different kinds of maki rolls
From the Chinese station –chicken feet and spareribs
And assortment of everything –nasi goreng, shrimps, baked fish, roasted beef, barbecued ribs, steamed veggie.
I only wish I had a filmy shot of the food I sampled. Sigh!
How can I pass and say no to these? tres leche, leche plan, dark chocolate, coated cereal
Double chocolate cake, panacotta and chocolate tart –heavenly!
Leoncio and I would never love the word “diet” ever.
Later, we explored the Newport Mall a bit and let my eyes indulged on the luxury of designer bags. I was delighted to window shopped at Michael Kors. And almost took home the MK Manila bag in a snap. Yes, the once limited canvas tote bag that sold like hotcakes in 2010. It’s discounted by 25%, so Leoncio was sort asking me if I really like it. I know he was thinking to gift me that bag and it would be a cheap option. Ayoko nga! Hehehe…
We were thinking of watching the Angel-JLC movie flick however, the screening time was way too late so after a few rounds and some photo op we left. It was one Sunday to recollect.
The question now is where do we go this coming weekend?
