A couple of weekends ago, we were guests of the Taal Vista Hotel. We had two rooms with the most wonderful view of the lake and the volcano. I really like that just an hour away from Manila, we can escape intense summer heat. I have to admit though that most of our Tagaytay trips have revolved around the other side of the ridge – Antonio’s, Sonya’s, and anywhere in Alfonso, Cavite. In the many years of staying here, I sort of took the Taal lake for granted, skipping it for a more serene and quiet experience at the farm-side. It was a pleasant surprise to see that Taal Vista Hotel still has the best view and it has whatever it is you’re looking for – whether it’s a busy park or your own quiet corner.

Doesn’t this remind you Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar…
Sophia’s cute backpack. She thinks she’s into anime now. But they haven’t actually watched any cartoons of the anime genre. They just like drawing the cute stuff. The rest of the anime things scare me; and I will remain vigilant. The backpack – she was excited to use it and go “trekking”.
This was a really good weekend getaway. The kids loved everything – the food, the rooms, the best bulalo (room service), the balcony, the view, the volcano. It felt like a world away from what we normally do in the city but it just took us an hour to get there. Why did it take us so long to do this?
