Nagcarlan and Liliw!

Last January, me and my two college bestfriends went to Nagcarlan for a short 2-day vacation. We rode the JAC Liner Bus in Pasay (they also have a terminal in Cubao and their buses are WIFI ready!) and spent 3 hrs on the road (fare is PhP125). We took off at SM San Pablo City and then rode a jeepney to Nagcarlan!

Ruth, me and Joana..
We planned to go to Bunga Falls but it was raining and Ruth's family told us to skip it because it would be dangerous there, so we went to the Underground Cemetery instead. The underground cemetery was declared a national historical landmark by the National Historical Institute in 1978.

Sementeryo sa ilalim ng lupa ng Nagcarlan.
Quite a vast place!

It feels creepy down there!

After the quick tour in the cemetery, we then decided to go to Liliw! Liliw is just like heaven for me and for those who love shoes! It's like a whole street of shoe stores and everything is so affordable! There's a wide array of flats, doll shoes, sandals, stilettos, wedges, espadrilles and more!

I super love that candy pink shoes but my size is not avail! :(

We were at Liliw by 4pm and stores usually close at 6pm, and come 6:30pm and we were still going back and forth to the stalls and doing some last minute shopping!

Well, eventually, we had to stop and I bought only 4 pairs, 2 sandals and 2 doll shoes! I really wanted to buy more pairs but I had to stop myself because I won't be able to carry all my stuff back home anymore! I just told my friends that next time, I'll bring my luggage and fill it up with shoes! :)

After the shoe shopping, we then decided to take a light snack at Arabella Camello's Bakehouse and Coffee Shop!

Arabella is a small cafe with nice and cozy interiors! They serve mainly pizza, pasta and cakes. The kitchen is open and you can see your food while being prepared.

Food is very affordable, prices range from PhP100 to 150 only. Took about 10 to 15 mins to serve them but it's worth the wait!

Beef Lasagna

Beef, Bacon and Mushroom Pizza

Dulce De Leche Cheesecake!! Yummy!

The pizza and pasta were good, but the cake was really delicious! It was the best tasting cheesecake for me! Very creamy, not to sweet, the cheese is not too tangy, everything is just right, so perfect! Plus the presentation is also very appealing!
