In less than a week's time, I'll be celebrating my 27th birthday! And yes, I also have a simple request. Inggitera ko e, haha. But instead of the usual pic greeting, I want a simple testimonial. Yes, a testimonial.. remember the good old friendster days? A short paragraph of how you see me as a person.. first impressions.. comments.. suggestions.. violent reactions or what not. Prizes? Wala. Birthday ko di ba?! Gift nyo na saken yan, okay? Thanks a bunch! Love you all.
Now back to regular programming..
Me and my two best gay friends, Zaicy and Carl, went to Tagaytay last week. We all wanted to take a break from stress and to enjoy the summer heat while it's here, so we planned a quick weekend getaway. It could have been in Laiya but most resorts are fully booked so we opted for Tagaytay.
We rode a van in Starmall transport terminal bound to Lemery and dropped off at Tagaytay Rotonda. Fare is PhP180. We then rode a tricycle to Tagaytay Haven Hotel in Ulat, checked-in and off we went to Picnic Grove.

There were only three of us but our food is fit for more.. Nothing could be more fun than eating good food with your best buddies! Deadma kahit ako favorite nilang away-awayin.

We went back to hotel around 2pm when it was about to rain. I watched tv while the two were sleeping. At 6pm, we went to Mushroom Burger for dinner. Hindi ko maka-get over sa PhP200 na pamasahe namin sa tricycle mula sa hotel papunta sa resto.. que mahal!
I've heard a lot about mushroom burger but I thought there was really nothing special to it. Both the place and the sandwich didn't quite meet my expectations. But that's just me. Baka favorite ninyo yan e awayin ninyo pa ko no!

From the diner, we then walked to Sky Ranch. There's a PhP100 entrance fee to the park but there's an on-going promo of 50% discount until end of this month.
We rode the Sky Eye and paid PhP150. So far, Sky Eye is the tallest ferriswheel in the Philippines at 63 meters high. The ride lasted for about 10mins.

We then had coffee at Starbucks, went back to the hotel, watched Breaking Dawn Part 1 on cable tv and called it a night. The next morning, we had the bonggang pictorial at the hotel.
I've read quite a few negative reviews about Tagaytay Haven Hotel so I didn't expect much. But there's nothing that I could complain about except that the pool was under construction. I was really excited to swim. In fact, I even bought a new pair of swimsuit for that.. lol. The garden was really beautiful plus the container van rooms were a very creative idea. The rooms were clean and minimalist. Well, wifi was not working but I really didn't mind.
We went back to the hotel room to grab our things and readied ourselves for check-out. When I opened the door though, I got the biggest surprise of my life! As in napatili kami ng mga bakla. It was raining like there's tomorrow. Seconds ago, the sky was clear and the sun real bright. Talk about crazy weather nowadays!

Walang kaabog-abog na ending, hahaha..
