    I'm planning on trying a Lapu Lapu this upcoming trip ~ NO I've never had one!!! :scared1: But, I was wondering...where it is served in a pineapple, do you tend to get a bunch of pineapple pulp in the drink??? I don't like pulp. :sick:

    The pulp ends up being one of the best parts. You need a spork. Trust me, bring a spork. The alcohol soaks into the remaining pineapple meat, you use your spork and scrape the sides of the pineapple after your drink is empty.

    People blanch at the cost of the Lapu Lapu, but honestly, you only need one, LOL. Scraping the sides just maximizes your value. :thumbsup2

    Soooo true! There's maybe 4-5 ounces of drink in the pineapple - we used the straw to try & scrape as much pineapple off the sides into the drink as we could...we were scraping long after the liquid was gone LOL!! If there hadn't been people around us on the beach we probably would have smashed the pineapple on the sidewalk so that we could have tried to bite more fruit out of it!! :rotfl:

    Wow! It's that good huh??? I'll definitely have to try it out. Do you bring your own sporks or are they supplied at the Poly??? :lmao:

    You have to supply your own, but just stop at any KFC and stock up. It will be worth it.

    The last time I did laundry on a trip was two years ago - at that time they took cash.

    You can get a Lapu Lapu from the pool bar in a cup, rather than a pineapple, if you don't like the pineapple pulp!

    thank you!! last june we stayed at the contemp. and there machines only take room cards. which was great, no fumbling for change. i normaly dont put charging on my room key.
    my wife says "just because your on vacation, dont get you out of doing the laundry".:lmao:
    funny story, one year we were at cbr. and there was laundry to do. i do it half way through our trip. i carry the wash over to the laundry room by the pool, all the washers were open so i used 4 at one time to get my chore done faster. it was about 9pm so not many people around. there were a few dryers running. i just hung out, reading the paper. the washers were just about done and here comes three women. the one ask me, wow, how does your wife get you to do laundry? they start giggling. so my washers are in the rinse cycle and i add fab. softener. ok, the giggling starts again.:lmao: the other one says , oh look lisa, he even fabric softens. :lmao:
    im willing to bet, there were a few guys sitting at the bar that night who got an ear full when there wives got back!!! :lmao: they were impressed with my laundry tech. :snooty: glad they didnt hang around for the folding!!!:lmao:

    You and my DH could have a little laundry par-tay. He always does our laundry on vacation too. It is his quiet time away from me and our 2 DDs. He reads magazines and such. I know......I am a lucky gal:love:

    oooooh, good tip...packing sporks now on my "to do" list :lmao:

    Borrowing friends park bag and just got it from her yesterday. I will have to make sure the sporks are packed in there.

    Do they make virgin Lapu Lapus? Or just anything in that pineapple? My daughter would flip out being able to eat one of those. :goodvibes

    Someone mentioned quite a while ago that they got their kids soda in the pineapple (just so they could have a cocktail too!) but that it was quite an $$ soda! It sounded like you could order whatever in a pineapple, but there is a premium.
