Since my honey and I did not spend our birthdays together this year (my bad, i said yes to a business trip), he decided to get me a well deserved R&R last weekend. We went to Tagaytay for a 3 day vacation. Was probably at my most relaxed (for quite sometime) this weekend. We left early last Saturday to hie off to Tagaytay. We stayed at a small inn overlooking taal lake and taal volcano. The room was nothing more than a bed, television and a clean bathroom, but, all in all, the place was cozy. Made cozier by the fact that I was spending it with my handsome hubby. Since we woke up early to leave Manila early, we decided to doze off before going out exploring. And doze off we did! We left the hotel at around 3PM to hunt for Gourmet's Cafe. We missed it and ended up eating at Gourmet's Cafe at DAP. Food was the same but ambience was not. After merienda, we went off in search of Caleruega. Both DA POGI and I have never been there and since we planned to go to mass there the following day, we went ahead and looked for it rather than spending the early part of the morning the next day searching for it. We were charged Php20 at the gate, just so we can see the church. The view was awesome. We spent some hours in the place and just seated ourselves in a swing while waiting for the sun to set. And I realized that the sunset is breathtaking, no matter where you are. When the yellows turn into reds and then into darkness, that is a view that would make you appreciate God's greatness. We then took off to look for Sonya's Garden. We didn't get lost. We reserved for lunch for two for the following day. For dinner we went to Leslie's Tagaytay. There was a wedding going on and they seated us at one of the treetop tables. We can see the whole wedding party from the view. The wedding was cute. All the ninongs had leis and all the bridesmaids wore floral dresses. Yup! You guessed it, they had a luau theme. Even the waiter's of Leslie's wore Hawaiian shirts. The whole upper deck of the restaurant had torches and wildflowers on the tables. Yun nga lang, the groom was wearing a coat and tie ensemble and the bride the traditional white. Ok na sana ang theme, but there was nothing floral on the bride, and even her flowers was plain roses lang. Sana sinamahan nila ng mga lilies or stargazers para makisali na rin sa theme. Anyways, I digress. Funny thing happened to the tip. When we have decided what to tip the waiter, we put paper money and had coins as weights. Sa lakas ng hangin, hindi kinaya, so ayun, the paper money was swept into Taal Lake. :) Will tell more later...
