Tagaytay with my Clan

Last August 23, my relatives and I went to Tagaytay. Tagaytay City is still part of Cavite and it is known as the "summer capital" of the Philippines.. (before you react... LOL!) next to Baguio! We went to Tierra de Maria also known as Haven Of Meditation and Enrichment or HOME. It is the HOME of a majestic 50-foot image of Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth. Well, just to give you a little bit of information, I am actually afraid of big statues and you can understand the chills I felt when I saw the image of Mama Mary. But I faced my fears for the sake of having the courage to go inside the chapel and pray. After that, we went to Tagaytay Picnic Grove. The last time that I've been there was when I was 10 years old I think. The place has changed a lot and so do I. LOLx. There, you will be able to relax and enjoy the view of Taal Lake. I just didn't like it when we have to walked and climbed the stairs. I got so tired just thinking about how long does it takes to get to the top or to get a better view. My elder cousin also decided to went to mini zoo but I just stayed in the van. Only the kids went there. I just hope that we had more time for us to really explore Tagaytay which is just an hour drive from where we are in Cavite.
Here are some photos that I took from that trip. I got lazy from editing it on photobucket, so I only have five photos to share. :)

The view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano in Batangas.
