last Saturday, November 8 was one of the happiest time that we’ve had…i can’t believe it that we’re really together…i’m so happy…really happy…we’ve worked out the problem that we’ve had on our schedule…we decided that eventhough we cannot go on to an overnight…we might as well spend our day relaxing in Tagaytay, 60 kilometers away from Manila…he fetched me around 9am…then we went to Maysan so he could chek out one of his costumers…then after 20 minutes, we went on our way to Tagaytay…we’re kinda hungry so we stopped first at Timog, Quezon City and looked for a place where we could do our brunch coz it’s around 10:30am already…well, we saw Ponciano’s and the food looked good because it’s a home made Filipino style, fortunately, Adrian’s not with us coz if he was, we have to eat again at McDo…hehehe…then around 11am, we left Ponciano’s and head out South…the traffic was okey, not to be troubled at all…we exited at Santa Rosa and then on the way to Tagaytay, our eyes feasted to the wonderful view of the mountain slopes of Pinya’s and coconut tree with the breath of fresh air…on the sideroad, you can see the vendors of different fruits like Pinya, Coconut, Papaya, Banana (still in its Buwig) and some corns as well…around 1:00 in the afternoon, we were already at Tagaytay just one left turn and you can already see the magnifiscent view of the Taal Volcano…though that was not the first time that i’ve been there, i can still appreciate the wonderful view esp the fresh air…as usual Picnic Grove is kinda packed up with people esp in weekends…you can see buses in lines in the parking slot for their educational trip…knowing that we won’t have some peace and serenity in that number of people, luv decided to drove along and look for a place where we can park and enjoy the place and the view…we went to Peoples Park in the Sky (the old house of the Marcos’) and it’s also packed with students too…we drove back again…luckily, along the way we found a gate, a white gate, and there were only three cars parked on that place…we decided to check it…whoala!!!…that place was just like Picnic Grove but its more kind of private, the name’s Nature Discovery Camp…considering that it’s a lot smaller than Picnic Grove but they have a pool, nipa huts, playground, mini forest and clean nice restrooms…if you’re with your family or just couple of friends who wants to go to and spend some time relaxing with some quietness and still have the same view, well this is the place that i would recommend…the entrance is P35 for adult compared to P15 of Picnic Grove…we used the cottage number 6…since we just brought little foods, mainly chichiria, macapuno, pastillas, sampalok, and cassava cake (we bought in Ponciano’s), we didn’t rented any tables…for almost two and a half hours we’re just talking about the latest news on our life…the people around us…Adrian…my family…his work…my work…my passion for mountaineering since we can see the first mountain that we climbed, the Mt. Maculot…and i told him the funny stories…the hardships…the food that we ate…the exhilating feeling when we reached the campsite and the relief as well…the number of times i slipped…the ‘alaskahan’…the smell…the feeling…everything…it’s so nice to talk to him again…i’ve missed him…it’s been a long time since we’ve talked that way…it’s really comforting…coz since i’ve started working, we didn’t have the luxury of talking for more than an hour…and i’m telling you that i’ve really missed it…A LOT!!!…and that’s why i’m so happy coz we’re able to spend some quality time together…which we both need…well, i guess that all relationship needs quality time…and im so happy that we spent twelve hours together…i’m really, really happy…we’ve experienced the fog as well…he’s really excited about the fog coz you can see it coming to us…and i’m so glad that he’s enjoying this as much as i do…it also rained, i think it’s a blessing for us and for all of the people around us…then around 4:00pm, we decided to stroll along the camp…we went to see the Mini Forest…the smell was like, a real mountain smell…it’s really good…then, after 30 minutes of tiring trek because of the 45 degree slope…we rested for couple of minutes and we decided to go so that we can avoid the traffic at Carmona on the express way…along the way back home, we bought some pasalubongs…buko pies, pinyas, papaya and bananas in buwig…then as expected, we encountered a real heavy traffic from Carmona to Sucat…maybe because of the fresh air and the trip, i fell of the sleep…a very deep sleep…i just woke at Munoz…and luv, he didn’t mind it at all…oh, i’m so happy!!!…hope that this won’t be the last time.

by the way, we’ve decided that on our anniversary next year…we’ll go to BAGUIO…overnight…
