Tagaytay City

TRAVEL DATE: October 31, 2011

Well a day before, we went to Lemery, Batangas and on our way back to Metro Manila, we had a detour trip in Tagaytay City! Tagaytay City is located in the Province of Cavite and overlooking the majestic Taal Volcano. 

Taal Volcano

Taal Volcano is one of its kind because this volcano's visible tuff cone is only small since it can be found in the middle of the lake. Its last eruption was way back 1977 and it might erupt one of these days! *Kidding*

From Lemery, Batangas to Tagaytay City took us about 2 hours travel time and we rode from one jeepney to another since jeepneys can only travel up to their province's borders. Tagaytay's cold weather is just right for tourists who want to escape Manila's heat. 

Upon arriving Tagaytay City, we dropped by Starbucks Coffee to chill out and relax, and have some ice cold frappucinos. It must have been our luckiest day since we won the customer of the day! *Applause* We won another frappucino drink free of charge. 

We also took the time to make fun of ourselves by taking "alien warp" pictures. Cheers to us 20 years after: 

Tagaytay's night life is very active in the sense that you can find a lot of hang-out places everywhere and a lot of acoustic bands playing which made the ambiance smooth-sailing. We had our dinner at a not-so-famous and not-so-big restaurant named "Handa Ni Erminda" which literally meant "Feast of Erminda". Honestly speaking, you will not be enticed by its facade but once you get inside the restaurant, you will be overwhelmed!

Foods served were very reasonably priced and delicious and they offered us their "KTV Room" which is only an isolated air-conditioned room with videoke machine. We got a good deal again since there were not much customers that time and they allowed us to stay overtime. If my memory is still intact, it was only around PHP 300 for 2 hours (non-consumable).

 Here comes the food part!

It was purely just a great night of singing and dancing and laughing at each other's jokes. A night to cherish and definitely a night to treasure!

We went home at around 10 PM I guess and we rode a bus bound for Manila and the travel time was around 1-2 hours. With our sleepy eyes and tired body, we surely enjoyed the experience.

'Till we meet again Tagaytay... :)
