Travel: Tagaytay, Intramuros, Matabungkay (Batangas) , and Anawangin (Zambales)

I’m so excited for my next domestic gala! Since I’ve canceled Baler and Fortune Island last May, I hope everything goes well and typhoon wouldn’t cancel flight this October.

For now, I just remembered places I’ve been to last summer.

Just wanna have a glimpse…

1. Tagaytay (02.07.2015)– Been here twice this year.

Places I’ve visited?

Sky Ranch- Di ko pa rin matanggap! Ferris wheel ride was too expensive! Ang alam ko 180 or 200 php for just one ikot?

Josephine’s Restaurant – The 400 php buffet price is worthy. hhmmm.. Fresh food indeed were yummy!

Tagaytay Part 2 (05.25.2015)

Since I failed to take photo of Taal last February, I took this shot.

Eway’s – Food served was not fresh. 😦 Bulalo was not too hot. I didn’t enjoy the food.

(would try to update pictures soon…)

Bag of Beans – I set a real high standard for this restaurant because the name itself sounds interesting. I am a fan of coffee but Bag of Beans disappointed me.

I ordered cold, they served it hot. I asked them to change it. So, they just put ice and served it again. SIGH! Mabait kasi ako customer. I don’t get mad and complain but I never come back after  a bad experience. However, this restaurant deserves a second chance, I hope it won’t disappoint me again.

Mabuti na lang these pastries were indeed good!

So, giving second chances though wouldn’t harm.

2. Matabungkay, Batangas (05.23.2015) -Ugly place with all the trash floating. Sigh! Sayang talaga environment.

I have scars now because of the irritation from water. 😦 It was a pinush lang na lakad since our mom wanted to go near the sea.

Madumi man sa Matabungkay, nakahanap naman ako ng pag-ibig.

It was one of the toughest months for me and a lot of hugots have been spontaneously lingering on mind. Lol.

Hindi nakaligtas sa hugot ko ang Matabungkay.

3. Intramuros (05.17.2015) – considered not a real gala too! My mom was hospitalized and it’s near intramuros so I grabbed the chance to walk around the area to destress.

intramuros_05172015So I felt like walking sa Spanish period. Plus, it was until June that we have to go near the area. So, I witnessed the costumes, traffic and crowded people because of the commemoration of Independence day.

Nang mapa-emote sa gitna ng dalawang kalsada na ang tinutumbok nama’y iisang lugar na dapat patunguhan.

4. Anawangin (04.25.2015-04.26.2015)

Anawangin is lovely! Really! It’s a tranquil place. Although, I have to be a cowgirl since it’s remote area which means no electricity.

Remembrance. 04.25-26.15. Sa isla ng anawangin sa may zambales.

It was an adventure indeed. But, a real danger. Why? We slept in a remote area what if there’s a life-threatening situation? I guess, people who go here should have knowledge in survival like what if I was bitten by a poisonous snake or sea creature? All I have during that time was an antihistamine. Just in case, one of us might suffer from an allergic reaction. Plus the basic first aid! Haha!

Ang bagong mukha ng selfie. putik, buhangin at tubig sa paa’y ramdam.

The cost of our travel is only 1599 (DLC Travel and Tour) food excluded. So, we cooked our own food, I mean, my friends cooked our food.

I also brought Soju since my friends wanted to try and had it with plum juice.

BY THE WAY: Whenever you have nature tripping please let us do the operation PULOT KALAT! Lol! I do this talaga. I know it’s not a big help but come to think of it? What if all people in anawangin and matabungkay care to gather all the trash and to never ruin the environment? It’s a great help. Sayang naman kasi Pilipinas. 😦
