lunch at TAALEÑA........


After Caleruega, we went back to Tagaytaay.
Dropped by the famous MUSHROOM BURGER
store for breakfast then straight to
Picnic Grove.

Not that we have never been there before.
But Scarlette's boyfriend Sachil, from
South Africa came and he decided to join us.
We thought it would be a good idea to
bring him there so as to have a good
view of the volcano~~~~~~

Taal Volcano during fall?

......but it was very foggy that day---or say cloudy so it was very disappointing. And the place seemed to suck more every time I visit. Sorry guys, I am not into ranting here in my blog but I cannot help but express my DISGUST to whoever is managing the PICNIC GROVE. Paying 50 pesos just doesn't add up. It's dirty and ill maintained.The place is a complete SHAME......

Then again, what could we do but to try to make sense of it.
And since everybody felt that paying 100 pesos for a dirty
wooden table is such an insult, we ended up in the roots of
trees. A bunch of squatters...........

Attractions like the zip line entertained some of us---not for me. I didn't try it. I just couldn't wait to get out of the place.

Good thing lunch came. We went to this restaurant they call Taaleña---

We were lucky we came earlier coz we got this place on the side which offers a very good view of TAAL below.....

Was a cozy restaurant with good food. We ordered a lot of Sinigang na Sugpo. My favorite. BY THE WAY: Chris and Cyril paid for everything, it's their Birthday month so they treated us. Thanks Chris and Cyril!!!!!

Then came the picture taking again.......

The Boys.......L-R: Chris, Ronie, Sachil, Mel, me, Raffy....JOSH was in the restroom.keke

the girls......L-R: Gleiza, Cathleen, Mai, Cyril, Daisy, Angel...

the group.......front: Cyril, Kat, Mai, Angel, Daisy, Scarlette
back, L-R: Ronie, Me, Mel and Sachil...

The we were off to another place........

But wait----I think I mentioned about the view from the restaurant. This one was taken from Sachil's camera.

I have seen Taal in more ways than one, but this picture really is different in a way I cannot explain........
