Tagaytay weekend

Last weekend, Mama, Lola, and I took the three-hour trip to Tagaytay to beat the unbearable Manila heat.
Or not. If you think that Tagaytay is a place to escape the scorching heat we’ve been having recently, you’re only half-right. It’s not as cool as I’d have liked, but at least even in direct sunlight you won’t break into a sweat.
We stayed at 5R. It was relatively inexpensive at Php1800 for a night.

After checking in, we had lunch at Leslie’s. It was packed when we arrived, so I expected a scrumptious meal. We were disappointed, though; the food was nothing spectacular (although they serve huge, plump sugpo).

Although they do have these huts where you can dine while enjoying the view.

It’s not a trip to Tagaytay without checking out the Picnic Grove, right?

The Filipino-Japanese Friendship Garden was tiny, but I didn’t even get to circle it once because I was drawn into a conversation with this cutie patootie little girl who wanted our picture taken:

Um… I don’t like kids? Really?

Then this… Tierra de Maria? I honestly don’t know what to call it. Basta, it’s a small place where devotees of Our Lady of Manaoag can go to pray to its replica.

Dinner that night was had at Java Jazz. The food was nothing memorable, really; what I liked about it was the interior, with paintings by local artists displayed everywhere.

We sat cross-legged at the low tables.

OMG BOKEH #photographer

Ugh, I’m terrible at writing travel blogs. Probably because seeing these photos make me want to leave again.
I’m thinking of going to Bulacan for the weekend, just because. WHY NOT. I want some time for myself, thanks.

Addendum: I apologize for sounding so angry here.
