To my surprise, my husband asked me where I wanted to go. I really had nothing in mind because I was already set to clean and organize the kitchen cabinets. Our son upon hearing his dad, suggested to go pitnic...hehehe, as what he heard and saw from tv...picnic, with sticks and marshmallows!!!
Good idea, coming from a 3-year old toddler...but the weather outside seems not fit for picnic...
Initially we thought of the La Mesa Watershed but since its a holiday, the idea might not be that good since most of the residents might be thinking just like us. La Mesa Watershed on most occasion is always crowded.
My husband then suggested Tagaytay. Tagaytay is located down south of Metro Manila, a two-hour ride from Quezon City. It is one of the most frequented by most Manilenos because of its cool temperature and proximity to the metro. It is in Tagaytay were you can perfectly view one of the Philippines active volcano, the Taal Volcano.
It was our children's first time to go to place as well as for our two home companions. It was also our first as a couple to visit Tagaytay. The last time I went there was like 7 years ago!
Leon had fun running around the lawn while Maia first experience stepping on a grass barefooted :)
After an hour or so, we went to the Good Shepherd Convent to purchase their yummy strawberry jelly and ube jam. The Good Shepherd Sisters are known for these deliciously-made sweets. There are more produce though aside from what I've mentioned, lengua de gato, choco flakes and peanut brittle are some of them. Purchase of these products supports their schooling.
Though we still wanted to go around, the long ride back home might take its toll on Maia, our four-month old baby. At about 4 in the afternoon, we called it a day but made a few stop along the highway to buy some fruits such as freshly picked pineapples and rambutan.
