Cyler’s 3rd Birthday Celebration at Nurture Wellness Village (Part Deux)


Hello! Hello! Finally, here’s the 2nd part of Cyler’s birthday celebration at Nurture Wellness Village, Tagaytay. If you haven’t read the first part you can read it here. I’ve decided to take a break from blogging that’s why I put this blog on hiatus. I just need to focus more on my family and other important things in life but I never neglected this blog. But if you’re following me on instagram (it’s kikay_mommy_sha btw)  I’m pretty sure you know what keep me busy. Anyway, going back to our topic we just had an overnight stay at Nurture but every seconds of our stay here was super worth it (and super nakakabitin!). So what did we do on our 2nd day?!

Here it is, the 1st part of my Birthday celebration(s)! Last month, Cj and I planned to have a family getaway on my birthday. Our initial plan was to have a staycation, thing is when we compared the price of the Hotels here in the metro and in the province we realized that it’s almost the same. So we decided to go out-of-town instead. The first thing that comes to our mind was a beach trip since it’s summer and since my toddler loves the water so much. If he can only stay in the water for the entire day, I tell you he will! So it has been decided that we will going to have an out-of-town trip, a beach trip that is!

Holiday Vacation with Friends and Family!

This post is part of my 2012 backlogs. Sorry for that, my bad . This post has been sitting on my draft folder since the first week of January, finally today I was able to share it with y’all. We had a holiday getaway together with our friends during the last week of December. We used to have our Christmas celebration here in Tagaytay because we so love this place! As a matter of fact we used to celebrate our Christmas get-together here for over three years now. Aside from the fresh air and cold breeze, Tagaytay is  the easiest and quickest getaway when you want to have a break from the hustle and bustle life in the city.

Side Kwento: We left Manila at around 9AM in the morning, we we’re in Sta.Rosa, Laguna at around 10AM and since our check-in time was 2pm we decided to go to Paseo de Sta.Rosa first. Whenever we go to Tagaytay, we make it a point that we drop by  Paseo de Sta.Rosa  to check out if we can score a great finds. This is a great place to shop because there are lots of factory outlets there, name it get it! This is definitely the perfect place for all shoppingera’s and shoppingero’s out there!

Here’s my OOTD!

We left Paseo de Sta.Rosa at around 11AM, off we went to Tagaytay. We had our lunch at The Cliff House. Whenever we go here we usually dine at Buon Giorno but since we wanted to try something different we decided to dine at Platito. They used to serve Filipino cuisine as you can see in the photo below. Our lunch turned into a brunch because of the food that we order. We ordered bangus, longganisa, spam with lotsa eggs! My friend, Jim who’s not a rice lover ordered some burger (BOOO!). Our order comes with three eggs! Parang hate na hate nila ang itlog dito noh? 🙂

The food price ranges from 100++ and above, it really is way cheaper compare to other Resto here in The Cliff House.

After our errr…egg-ish lunch we decided to go the Hotel. Off we went to Piña Colina Resort.

This year we didn’t stay at Hotel Dominic (our all time favorite Hotel in Tagaytay. Haha!), we reserved a two-story unit in Piña Colina Resort instead. For a change. This unit is good for 15-20 people, and did you know how many are we?! We are only six! KALOKA! So super kakalog-kalog kaming lahat dun sa bahay. Our three friends backed out on the same day, so we don’t have any choice but to avail it. We tried to asked the Receptionist if we can change our room, unfortunately they we’re fully booked at the moment. My gulay! So we didn’t have any choice but to get it, kahit masakit sa aming damdamin at bulsa.Ang mahal eh! Ang sakit sa bulsa! 😛

The only problem with this resort is that it’s quite difficult to find their exact location. They are located at Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay Highway, so you need to have a keen eye for you to be able to see it.  I think it doesn’t really look like a resort, it looks more like a small village. Their staff was really kind and friendly though, which is a must for me. And they never failed to greet us with simple hi and hello whenever they pass on our way.

Anyhoo, here’s our casita (a.k.a semi-mansion sa sobrang laki): Continue reading

Tagaytay Food Trip: Buon Giorno!

This post is part of our Tagaytay trip backlogs, so please please bear with me. If you miss my previous post about our first Tagaytay food trip you can read it here. Our second destination in Tagaytay was The Cliff House, it’s one of my favorite place here! The place is relatively unpopulated, perfect for all foodie (like me), and scenic. If you’re looking for a romantic place to go here in Tagaytay with great view of Taal Volcano, I highly recommend The Cliff House! The place is way better and indeed romantic at night (read the story here )! It was my second time here, and I suggested this place to my friends. They instantly fell inlove to this lovely place! This is just a few meters away from Leslie’s and Magallanes square, you need to have a keen eye for you to see this place because of it’s unnoticeable and simple signage outside the highway. Cyler loves the place so much because of it’s wide space for running, Cj and I took turns in chasing him! We are forever running after Cyler! Oh boy, he is such a handful!

The Cliffhouse is the perfect pit stop when you opt to relax, breath, meditate, eat, and bond with your family and friends! Nothing beat the fresh air and great view of Taal Volcano! Not to mention the cold breeze!

Here’s some of our photos that I wanted to share with y’all! Hope it lighten up your busy day! 🙂
