Leap Year Birthday Staycation at Manila Marriott Hotel

As a leap year baby, celebrating my birthday on the actual date of my birthday (February 29) is a very rare phenomenon. After all, it only comes once in every 4 years! After a looong wait, there was (finally!) a February 29 this year, so I was hoping that I could have a more special …

My Love-Filled Leap Year Birthday
