rekindling old bonds.......


If you want something badly, expect some

Since most of our batch mates in
our former company are already
working on a freelance basis,we rarely
see each other. Most of us now work
at home.Sometimes stress level and
boredom really gets out of hand so
we decided to go somewhere---


where to go???

......the 1st option was supposed to be ANAWANGIN in Zambales---but just when all the tents are all ready, one of the members brother in Saudi Arabia got involved in a car accident. So it was postponed several times.

PUERTO GALERA was the 2nd choice but the d*mn weather got so unpredictable. It rained and shined the whole week. As of Thursday, the LPA above Mindoro suddenly developed into a storm. Talk about perfect timing. Afraid of crossing Batangas Straight on such circumstances, we ended in Tagaytay with only 5 of the original 10 members. The show must go on. There no substitute to the chance to bond and rekindle old friendships........

L-R: Celine, Mela, me and Joan

We commuted from Manila Saturday morning. This photo was taken in front of SOTO GRANDE where we stopped. The tricycle ride in the intersection next to it took us to our destination ------174 Asisan Street.

Joan's frustration: to climb pine trees........

L-R: Celine, Joan , Mela and Josh

How to get there:

From the main road, take the tricycle, go straight. Turn left on the 1st intersection with a Catholic Chapel as a landmark. Go straight passed these pine trees ...



In the next intersection lies the transient house where we stayed. It's the first one you see when you turn right. .....

the transient house--newly renovated and furnished.

......clean and spacious

It was supposed to cost us 4, 000 pesos, but since only 5 of us were able to make it, I texted the owner if we can have it for 3,500 and she immediately said yes. There were 2 queen size beds on the upper house and 3 double beds underground.

All in all---it could accommodate 11 guests.


love the grass........I could sleep here.

the wide front yard
is just perfect........

these steps are perfect for photo shoots.....
above is the gate.....

and the benches are more than ordinary.....

still fresh during the 1st day......

Aside from this, the kitchen is also very spacious, we went to the market to buy some food and we took the time to cook dinner together. We didn't have to bring anything, the house is complete with utensils ,cooking wares and stove. Josh cooked adobo and pakbet. It was very delicious. Food gets more appetizing indeed when shared with special people. Not to mention, if you are already starving. keke

Our main goal is to spend time together, to have a chance to talk and make fun memories. Odd enough, it didn't rain despite the weather disturbance. We stayed outside and chatted until 1am and then transferred to the balcony for a drink.....

watch out for our next bonding moments...............
