When Holy Week was fast approaching, I kind of felt pressured and panicked that we didn’t have anything planned for that long weekend. I remembered exactly how I used to spend my Holy Week with my family — watching 7th Heaven marathon in bed or squishing ourselves to fit in the couch, or crying over the religious movies that are really meant to make you reflect on the life you are living. Not to mention following the popular Pinoy traditions that my mom follows — hanging Palm Sunday palaspas on the door, fasting and abstinence from meat and lavish meals, not showering on Good Friday, visiting a number of churches or Visita Iglesia, doing Stations of the cross, watching Senakulo and witnessing the Salubong ritual.Show Content ofT House /Read More

Tranquil Tagaytay

Tagaytay is dear to our hearts in many ways than one. We’ve been here countless times during boyfriend-girlfriend stage, and we even got married here!

It’s like a luxe yet easy escape to go to when you need a quick breather away from the heat of the city.

Last Holy Week we’ve planned to get away even just for a day or two. We thought of other places but ended up deciding to drive here which is relatively close from Manila. Ideally on a fine day, I enjoy the sight of fresh flowers blooming, offering a vibrant sight to behold. Here’s sharing the beautiful blooms that greeted us in this cool climate escape.

Playing Tourist in the City

Last March I gifted my B with Polaroid coupons and a hotel getaway is one of them. And since I recently quit my day job (more on that story soon), a hotel getaway sounds even more enticing.

My favorite part of staying at a nice hotel is their buffet breakfast — this time we are eating at HEAT restaurant.
