Places to Visit in Cavite

Jomar (my boyfriend) is from Cavite province. Because of that, we decided to have a Cavite tour as part of our Valentine-Birthday celebration. He knows how much I love going to historical places, thus he planned an itinerary for a day trip going places that played a significant role in the Philippines history.

We started our trip by meeting in Ayala Avenue, Makati City. We rode a bus going to Baclaran then transferred to a bus that goes to Cavite City. After around an hour and a half due to the bad traffic near SM Bacoor, we went down in Aguinaldo's Shrine. It was my first time there!

What I find most amazing about the place (more than it's historical significance and the museum displays explaining part of Philippine history) are the passageways between the floors. There were signage saying that the small door on the second floor leads to the fourth floor near the balcony. Those things were amazing! It was truly the right house for people during the Spanish time were hiding was necessary to avoid getting killed. After exploring the house of Emilio Aguinaldo, we road a small non-air condition bus to the gas station and transferred to another bus to have our lunch in Leslie's. It was a garden like restaurant in the middle of the road. Too bad they don't have the Bulalo and Boneless Bangus which I truly adore in their Tagaytay City branch. Our last stop for the day because it was too hot was the Casa Hacienda Tejeros Convention.

It was an amazing tour visiting historical places in Cavite. Jomar is actually mentioning some other tourist spots but we didn't have the energy and time to visit them. I am hoping for a round 2 of this tour.

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to Compassion.ca, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.



We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
