Dine & Drive

Earlier this week, I got the chance to get a preview of Shangri-La Mactan’s Father’s Day offering… Dine & Drive! It was a blast! It’s definitely something all the Dads out there would enjoy. It’s more than just your typical lunch out with your family because you get to enjoy the exhilarating experience of driving a Mini Cooper! Unless you already own one. Haha

I’m not a Dad yet nor am I going to be one soon but I’m pretty sure this is how Father’s day should be celebrated! I certainly would’ve tagged my Dad along if only he was here in Cebu.

I was munching on these delectable food and my mind just keeps springing back and forth on how delicious they were and how exciting it was going to be driving a Mini Cooper! Haha

Nope, that’s not the one you’re going to be test driving. You can eat it, though. Haha

Down to the exciting part! After eating at Tides, pay a visit at the Mini Cooper pop up booth in the lobby and get to test drive the Mini Cooper S or the Mini Clubman! The one in the photos is the Mini Cooper S. This is there hatchback model with headlights outfitted with LEDs. It has a combination of leather and cloth seating. It looks like a small car but it packs a 2.0-litre engine! I didn’t drive this one though but I took the Mini Clubman for a spin!

See that look on my face on that rear view mirror? That’s pure bliss! Haha I enjoyed every minute of it. Driving the Mini Clubman was truly an experience I would do over and over and over again! Haha It makes you feel in control and safe. Driving it made me realize why this cute deceiving little vehicle has a hefty price tag. Its small but terrible. Its actually pretty roomy! That’s why it’s deceiving because it looks like you’re going to get cramped inside… well you’re not. It looks small but its got a lot of power. Trust me! Haha
