Less than half-day Tagaytay Trip

Yes, we were in Tagaytay for less than half of a day.

Last Sunday (January 19), +Jomar, Mama +Chelle, and I gave a tour to +Amit Chopra to the cold and breezy Tagaytay City.

We left Manila around 6:30am and have found ourselves on top of the People's Park in the Sky 2 hours later. It was a cloudy day and strong cold winds greeted us on top of the park. The view of Laguna and of course, the Taal Volcano is gloomy.

After a few minutes taking photos, we decided to ask people holding "Boat for Rent" sign, how much it would cost much to our surprise the Manong said it costs Php 4,500.00 (that's really expensive, even for the big boat!). Amit said that he does not want to get seasick because the strong wind might rock the boat on its way to Taal volcano even if he was really looking forward to a donkey ride. So instead of riding the boat, we decided to enjoy warm cookies in Starbucks. After taking photos of the view, we decided it's time to go back to Manila since the sky is gloomy and it might rain. We stopped by Rowena's to buy buko tart and silvanas.

Dark Clouds at 10 AM in the morning!

During the drive back to Manila, I was sleeping most of the way and woke up when we arrived at the front door of the National Museum.

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.

Vacation: Fifth Day Back Home with Best Friend Forever

Ugh. It's my fifth day back home. My vacation is almost over. I can't believe it! For today, I scheduled to meet with my high school best friend, Deci.


Before meeting with her, Jomar and I had breakfast at Jollibee! Yes! Longganisa meal, corned beef meal, and 2-pc Chicken Joy just for the two of us.

That's a 900 calorie meal for breakfast. If that's not enough, on our way back to the condo we saw someone selling taho! Of course, I purchased some and we enjoyed it by the pool area.


After that, Jomar and I went up north of Metro Manila to Trinoma and SM North EDSA. I lived in Quezon City most of the 1st 25 years of my life.

Because of that, my optician is in SM North and I decided to get my eyes checked for free (sorry, Canada eye care is way way cheaper here). I decided to have my lenses changed to one that would turn into a darker shade when it's bright outside (instant sunglasses). It costs Php 2,500 (~$70 CAD) but I had to come back at around 7:00 PM since they s…
