Tita Tess,a very good friend of my mom, invited us to go to their rest house in tagaytay and to "house hunt" as well last march 4.It was a rainy afternoon,i wasn't feeling very well and anthony was in the province that day to do some auditing,so maybe that's why i've decided to go with them with my 3 kids.ayji landen was very excited,see? :)) (with his ever loyal puppy bag)
Thank God i didn't have panic attacks that day haha.i have a phobia of riding in fast cars! good thing mom told manong jay or jim or whatever not to drive fast.i just can't stand it!
We first visited this place called NUVALI multifunctional lake in Sta.Rosa, Laguna before heading to their house.We got there at around 5pm.wasn't able to visit the whole place bec it's getting dark and it was raining and i forgot to bring my kids' jackets.What i love about NUVALI is the fragrant surroundings and overflowing with lush greens! no pollution! Perfect for my Family especially to my daughter's lungs! (she's asthmatic!) The first thing we did was visit the lake :) and feed the fishes! (feeds are 15 pesos per pack!)
When i was about to throw some feeds into the lake, i saw this!
"Where are they going mommy?" ayen asked me..then decided to follow them hehehe
I can't almost recover to what i've seen haha\
Let's have a closer look , shall we?
At first glance, i thought they were just huge gold fishes haha i used to a have a pet gold fish when i was little. I later found out that these are KOI (japanese for carp).These colorful fish are fascinating to watch and quite famously have a distinctive personality. They are known to be lucky as well in certain numbers by fengshui masters.:) It's very hypnotizing to watch them feed:) Ayji threw the whole bag of feeds into the water, the fishes became more violent haha, They almost gotten out of the water!
The next thing we did was the boat riding!
This was the most relaxing thing i did in a billion years!
See? even my kids loved it! "Ayli sandrine, pls keep your mouth shut the whole time if you don't want the koi jumping in to your mouth:))"
perfect place for some meditating:)
We got hungry of course! It was almost dinner time. Tita chose this korean resto DOMO TOMO , she said they usually eat here.
Nice ambiance, few people, perfect for a nice quiet dinner for the family.
Tita ordered this for her goddaughter gabby. I think this is called Mabo Tofu
I chose this Gyudon-Tempura Bento. Tempura is just my fav! even if it makes my face bloated hehe Antihistamines is my partner in crime:)
We really had a great time at this wonderful place! surely we will visit this again with anthony!
While waiting for gabby's mom at serendra, we visited Fully booked. Bookstores that are child friendly like Fully booked really makes my kids stress free:)
Till the next adventure!
