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.

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!
