Tagaytay how I love to go back, after visiting twice this year (2012)

Updated on July 12, 2012

View from Taal Vista Hotel

With my cousin/friends this time

Our Childhood friend who lives in Singapore is expected to have her vacation in July and cousin Lizza told me we will go to Tagaytay when she arrives. I told her I just went there, but then i guess I'ts fine to bring Deth to Tagaytay than stroll with her in malls and dine in.

Looks like my cousin brought us to Tagaytay to eat, and I was surprised she asked where are we going to take our breakfast when she already planned where to bring us at lunchtime, beside it was almost "Brunch time" .... since I have no idea about other places in Tagaytay, and same with Deth, she decided on her own. She said she will bring us to a breakfast buffet.... and what a thrill, breakfast has always been my favorite meal time.....but what? a buffet? with just a few hours before lunch and she had no plan to cancel the second meal? Why should I complain, she was the one treating us anyway..... I just need to enjoy the day..

Bag of Beans Breakfast Buffet

As early as 9am, the place is already crowded with people who are obviously taking their vacations in Tagaytay. The place is below the main road, quite closer to nature, with their open air motiff. My cousin chose a Cabana that has a tag of P1,000.00 consumable. You can stay in the Cabana for 3 hours and enjoy the breakfast buffet and the bed? yes there is a bed beside our table.. This really gives a feeling of haivng breakfast in bed...made me feel so at home.

Taal Vista Hotel

My cousin said we can enjoy a beautiful view of the lake and the Taal Volcano at the back of the Taal Vista Hotel, after a heavy breakfast I guess we need to walk around the hotel to prepare for another heavy meals later. The views of the Taal Volcano, the Lake and the sky is quite nearer at Taal Vista Hotel, it was nearly 12nn then but the wind is cool, matching the beautiful view, I felt like I wanted to recite a poem. Another plus factor, the place is Wifi ready, wide coverage, that we can post our pictures instantly in our favoritie social networking site.

It's like a painting of nature right before your eyes. It is so pretty you can stare at it all day while feeling the cool breeze touching your face and skin..... what a nice a place to stroll with friends while reminiscing the good old time.

Lunch Time

It was quite a long Travel going to Sonia's Garden but cousin swore it's worth the wait. Reaching the place it is really like a garden, again it made me feel like closer to nature with too many flowers on our way going to the main restaurant. Sonya's Garden is also open air, no air condition, but only heavy duty industrial fans.... The place is bright and lively suggesting a very festive mood, we sat near this water flowing from the wall, which gives an illusion of waterfalls, and the effect is really cool and fresh. The fresh dalandan Juice is just so perfect. The Set meal/Eat all you can is healthy and overwhelmingly exciting.

The Comfort room is another plus factor... it is so Filipino with the Capiz and Big windows.

Recharged Energy

Just a whole day at Tagaytay and it was so much fun and unforgettable. I really wish I can comeback sooner. We need to have a time like this with friends to recharge our energy both physically, emotionally and mentally. I really appreciate Tagaytay City now, I think it became a favorite place and the first one that I am going to visit with special someone well in case I found one hahahaha, but for the mean time I will encourage friends to have lunch at Sonia's Garden, after strolling the place.

Thanks to cousin Liza and Deth for bringing me there... It's worth a day to leave a spoiled dog at home hahaha
