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.

Hi Miss Vicky! Got back after a long leave of absence with the blogging world! But it was all worth it because we passed our System/Thesis. Grabe it was really hard especially the programming part! So far 5 groups palang ang accepted out of 84!

I am really happy with your post about that Tagaytay Adventure! We went on ours as well! We were just about to eat at Jolibee Tanza kanina with my High School Friends but ayun, napunta kami sa Naic, trece, Amadeo at papunta sana Tagaytay kasu Umulan ng malakas so bumalik na kami jejeje.

God Bless and More power to your Blog!

Hi sis. It is really a long time since the last time I visit your blog. You have made lot progress then. Seems like now you have more time to visit places.
While right now I'm stuck in my school. My 3rd grade students are going to have final exam next March, and we have to make sure that everything is going to be just fine. Hehe ....
So sad that now I don't have much time to visit friends like you and Beth.
