Let's admit it--rainy days can be such a drag. Imagine ending up with wet hair, damp shoes, and an all-soaked umbrella that won’t stop dripping after a very uncomfortable and humid commute.
If you're playing hooky (or you simply don't want to deal with the office for the time being), make the most out of your self-proclaimed walang-pasok day and consider these interesting and relaxing things you can do:
Go for an indoor adventure
Aside from malls, there are so many places you can visit when you've got a whole day to yourself. There's no need to go far if you wish to enjoy fun Instagrammable museums and other indoor gimmicks.
TRY: The Dessert Museum, Coral Way, S Maison Mall, Conrad Hotel Manila, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City; online rate is P699, walk-in rate is P799
Try a fun workout
Fight the urge to stay in bed with a non-boring physical activity. In case you haven't tried something different and crazy like jumping on a trampoline, now's the time to get on it!
TRY: Jump Yard, Frontera Verde Complex, Ortigas Ave. cor. C5, Pasig City; Monday to Thursday (except holidays) is Php250.00/hour/jumper; Friday, Saturday and Sunday including holidays is Php350.00/hour/jumper
Read a good book in a public library
Don’t mind the heavy rains outside as you ease your mind with a good read and a smooth playlist in tranquil libraries that are open to the public. Visit these uncrowded places for books of all sorts.
TRY: Aurelio Montinola, Jr. Library, 209 Nicanor Garcia Street, Bel-Air II, Makati City
If there's really no stopping you from getting your chill on, at the very least, go get a good massage from a legit spa. You'll thank yourself later when you finally need to get back to your work groove.
TRY: The Spa Wellness Combination Massage (Suite), P1,012/60 minuts, P1,463/90 minutes
