Eco Hotel Cabins Tagaytay


We had a very pleasant stay at Eco Hotel Cabins in Tagaytay last weekend.   It's our first time to stay here actually, and we were beyond impressed! To start off, the location's perfect. It's just across Ayala Malls Serin, and with Pamana, Tsokolateria and Hawaiian BBQ - 3 of the most loved restaurants in Tagaytay - as its next door neighbors, hindi k'me magugutom ... READ MORE

Casetta del Divino Zelo


If you've been to Ilog Maria's Honeybee Farm in Silang, Cavite then you've probably seen this gated "house" outside Ilog Maria - covered with potted plants and baby trees. Last month when AJ and I went to Ilog Maria to buy more of their natural bee pollen (which we take daily), we made sure to check out this gated "house", which we learned from friends was a little convent ...

Bag of Beans @ Twin Lakes, Tagaytay


I had a very challenging week at work, and what I wanted to do right now is to drive off to Tagaytay and hole up there until Sunday.  That is, if only I can drive (and I don't know how hehe)! AJ and I were actually there last weekend, and as I took my mind off work, my eyes opened up to this picture-perfect restaurant that we discovered while cruising the Tagaytay-Nasugbu ... READ MORE

Taal Vista Hotel


I've been reading lots of good feedback about Taal Vista Hotel, so to celebrate AJ's birthday last week, I booked us a weekend stay here. Thankfully, traffic was not so bad that Saturday morning.  We left Makati at 11 (without any breakfast!) and was at the hotel at exactly 1:30 p.m.  We were supposed to have lunch first at Josephine's before checking in at Taal Vista but ...

Caleruega’s Retreat Center


Today being Good Friday, I want to look back at our visit to Caleruega in Tagaytay last year. Caleruega is a compound that houses the popular wedding destination, the Transfiguration Chapel, and the Caleruega Retreat Center.  Not everyone may know this but the administrators of Caleruega offer retreat packages for schools, couples and families.  Perfect for this Lenten ...

Potter’s Ridge Hotel


I woke up to a very humid and hot Sunday today.  Ang hirap tuloy maglinis ng bahay, hehe!  The hot weather made me miss the hotel we stayed in at Tagaytay a few weeks ago - Potter's Ridge Hotel - and its open space lay-out that allows the guests to enjoy the cool Tagaytay breeze any time of the day. The hotel looks unimposing outside, and I wondered how can ... READ MORE

Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm


The highlight of our weekend trip in Tagaytay some 2 weeks ago was our visit to Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm.  Although we've been to Tagaytay countless times already, we never got around to checking out the place until 2 weeks ago. Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm turned out to be more than just a bee farm.  It is also an animal sanctuary where chickens, geese, bunnies, ... READ MORE

A Relaxing Weekend in Tagaytay


As you may have noticed, I have lots of travel posts here in the blog that features Tagaytay.  Whenever AJ and I wanted a change of scenery, a weekend getaway or an impromptu day trip - we almost always find ourselves in Tagaytay, which is just a 2-hour drive from Manila. Last week was particularly stressful to us both - him with an impending system go-live (scheduled next ... READ MORE
