Highlands Weekend

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

It's hard to believe that this photo was not taken in Baguio. Surprise! surprise! The photo was taken in Tagaytay! Beautiful view, isn't it? It's where we spent the weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday. It was a great bit of escape from the bustling city streets of Manila and not to mention -- the heat wave!

 We checked in over at Tagaytay Highlands Spa and Lodge. The interiors looked so cozy and relaxing that I want to dive into the bed the moment we arrived. I'll host a little bit of a room tour. 
there's the bed, the couch, the table, the wood furnishings...
And our bathroom, the tub, the sink....Okay, I suck at hosting a room tour. But you do get the point, right? And when it's time for a family photo-op
 I looked like that. I told you I was the odd one. -_-
 And when it's time to take swimming photos  -- my sister looked all nice-simple-kind hearted and all that shiz. 
And yes, there's me -- being odd again
 dad,  can I ask something...why the pose? @-) 
(I intentionally made the font size small so if ever my dad visits my site, he wouldn't notice that little nosy comment I made. you know parents = far-sighted
 Time for breakfast! I ordered hot cocoa and tapsilog!  
 Sosyaaaaaal. May presenting-the-food effect. haha 
 I will forever swear by this tapsilog! If you guys ever visit Tagaytay Highlands, you really need to have a taste of this! Or else your visit is not complete. 
 Farewell, Tagaytay Highlands! I am looking forward to visiting you again. 

We made it a point to buy some pasalubongs before going back to the city. And what I can say... whoever calls the Philippines "poor", clearly, hasn't seen this. 
 
How's your summer so far? 

XX, 
Jess
