Padre Burgos, Quezon Province

Adventure weekend strikes again! This time, my friends and I went to Padre Burgos, Quezon.

Hilltop view. Still during low tide.

Padre burgos is an hour ride from Lucena Grand Terminal. From Manila, we took a bus going to Lucena. Manila to Lucena is supposedly 3-hour ride only, but due to multiple road constructions, our trip went on for 4 – 5 hours.

Cow smelling flowers.

Planning to go to Padre Burgos means planning to island hop. Travelers would enjoy the trip there if they intend to visit its nearby islands. Three islands we visited are Borawan, Kuwebang Lampas, and Dampalitan.

Food fest! Lunch at Dampalitan

One thing I love on our trip aside from the place, was the people. People there are friendly and warm. They know how to provide good quality of service to tourists. Two thumbs up for standing by the Department of Tourism’s tagline : It’s more fun in the Philippines!

More adventures to come! Little break on the Lenten season, but next months will be full of great and priceless trips.

Soulmate by Natasha Bedingfield (cover)

It’s an arts and crafts day today for me. This time, I take on Natasha Bedingfield’s single Soulmate.

Sorry for the noisy stuff, low-cost production only. Haha! Feel free to leave a comment here or on my YouTube channel. Hit “like” if you enjoyed the whole thing (hit also “like” if you don’t). LOL.

This goes to all those who still haven’t found their soulmates. Yea! Thanks heaps! ❤

Let’s Drive To Tagaytay, Yo!

Weekend adventure is awesomely cool! This time, C-O-O-L, literally.

My buddies and I went to visit Tagaytay, Philippines – a town known for cool climate, good food, and scenic view. Upon visiting the place, we did exactly these three things that’s making the place famous.

First stop: Bag of Beans. We decided to eat our breakfast on this lovely, nature-inspired place. With ganden-ly feel, delicious food, and excellent service of the staff, the entire dining experience in Bag of Beans is a must for all the Tagaytay travelers.

Define heavenly breakfast. Yum!

One of the nice pieces of the restaurant.

Next stop: Caleruega. So we feel like we need to get some calming vibes from this cool town, therefore a church with a refreshing concept of beauty is a place to be. Caleruega is a garden with a church, with a retreat house, and with a beautiful view. Beat that! Say all-in-one.

My Tagaytay buddies. Yey!

Another food stop: Bulalo feast! A trip to Tagaytay is not complete without tasting their famous Bulalo (or beef marow stew). With a cold climate, the warmth of this famous soup is such a treat. Woohoo!

Last but not the least stop: Palace In The Sky. I’m not really sure why this place was called it’s name. All I know is staying here for sunset and looking for a great place to see the almost-entirety of Tagaytay, is perfect!

There! Had lots of fun with this weekend adventure. Hoping for more weekend adventures to come. Hopefully I’ll have another one before the month ends. Till next time!
