Tagaytay Getaway

Hubby and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary last January 24th. Congratulations to both of us  because we just surpassed the so-called 7-year itch of married life. And as a treat, hubby and I decided to go to Tagaytay with our little angel ER. As always, I'm the one who do the researching and planning of everything. I think it took me a week or so to do the research because as much as possible I would like to visit places there that we've never been to.

Here's our itinerary:
We left Manila at around 8am. We had our breakfast via Jollibee drive-thru at Shell SLEX-Binan. After two hours of travelling, we arrived at Twin Pines Suites at around 10am. We unpacked our things and rested for a while.

We had our lunch at Chic-Boy in One Destination Resto just across our place. Then, we went to Residence Inn Mini Zoo. Honestly, it's quite disappointing because there's nothing much to see in that zoo. It's ER's first time at the zoo so we don't want to spoil her day.

Then we proceeded to Paradizoo. First, we had kikiam and soft drinks as snacks. There, we get to see the Paradizoo flower farm, the Pet Cemetery and the five-legged cow (the last two being featured at Balitang K before). It's also ER's first time to do the pony ride. She enjoyed it very much. I think our little girl is going to grow up to be an adventurous one because we did not see her get frightened on her first pony ride. Then, we went back to Twin Pines Suites for a quick rest. We had our dinner at Teriyaki Boy in One Destination and returned to our suite for a good night's sleep.

The next morning at around 7am, we had CornSiLog with coffee/hot choco for breakfast (it was included in the package). We proceeded to Picnic Groove & People's Park in the Sky for a walk. Then, we went to a souvenir shop to buy some goodies for our people. We proceeded to Our Lady of Manaoag to give thanks for all the blessings that we have received all year round. We had lunch at Max's Restaurant in One Destination and we went back to our suite to pack our things. Our last stop was Rowena's Cafe to buy pasalubong for our loved ones back home. As I've said in this post, I'm the one who did the research including the pasalubong thingy. It's worth it because we get to taste the yummy buko pie of Rowena's. No offense to Collette's, it's true, Rowena's is more flavorful. We have never tried Amira's though. We have been hearing good reviews about it too.

That day was a very tiring but very fulfilling one. We get to see Tagaytay's secret side. We never had a chance to visit The Flower Farm, Japanese Friendship Garden, Pink Sister's Convent, Bag of Beans, Josephine's Restaurant, Leslie's Restaurant, Mushroom Burger, and Cliffhouse because of lack of time and budget. I think the itinerary that I did was for 3 days. Never mind, as they say there's always a next time! :)
