Short escape in long weekend

 Each corporate slaves always yearning for a "long weekend" this is their time to relax, time to escape from the corporate world, escape to their horrible bosses or sometimes to spend time with their family.  So we didn't passed the chance to escape, Last Sunday August 19, 2012 me and my officemates went up to Tagaytay just to chill and leave for a while the toxic days from the office.  Our original plan was supposedly go to Nuvali but since its almost 11 am when we finally arrived in our meeting place we changed our plan. We headed to Tagaytay and ate lunch at Leslies located at Aguinaldo Hi-way Tagaytay City, Cavite we arrive at around 1:00 in the afternoon.

Very relaxing place it's an open air restaurant so you'll feel the cold breeze while eating, the picture below was the old bamboo as one of their interior inside the restaurant .

 we ordered their specialty which is Bulalo and others like Pinakbet and Lechon kawali. Yummy!!! :)

after we ate lunch we proceed at Natures Discovery Camp a few meters away from Peoples Park, on our way to Natures discovery i saw lots of fruits stand along the hi-way nothings new but still

 i am always amazed by,and  its been a long time since the last time i visited this place..

This is the view from Natures Discovery Camp, overlooking the Taal Volcano and the lake

way down at Natures Discovery Camp Mini Forest, very steep!!
 this place is perfect for team building or even put up a tent and spend overnight with friends or family.

 After we tour and survived the very steep and short trek in their so called "Mini Forest" we left and head to Nuvali we stayed for an hour then we decided to visit kuya allan's house in Pacita Laguna to have some merienda "unli lugaw, lumpia, egg and tokwa't baboy..:) yummmmm...
We left Laguna at around 8:00 pm. I arrived home late but its okay, i did not feel tired.
All in all we went home with smiles in our face. It was a short escape but we really had fun. Again we look forward for another long weekend and escape just like we did.. :)


  1. Cool post! I miss visiting Tagaytay and Leslie's

  2. Many know of Taal Volcano & Lake, but did you know about the Heritage Town of Taal?

    It's the foremost heritage town in the Southern Tagalog region and its right next to Tagaytay, Taal Volcano & Lake!

    Every Filipino should tour Taal at least once. It makes for a wonderful blog. Check out Casas de Taal Tours for more about Taal at:
