2nd Year Wedding Anniversary Celebration

It was our 2nd year wedding anniversary last 15th of December and to celebrate, we decided to go to Tagaytay. We left Marianna with Mama Wena and Tita Rio and its just the two of us who went there. We got there by bus and was able to check in the Taal vista hotel at approximately 3pm on the 14th. Swerte na din at nagkataon, there was a promo on the superior suite. It was normally priced at Php 6,500.oo/night but because of the promo to SMAC (SM advantage card) holders, we were able to avail the same room at Php 2,888.00. A room with a king size bed, a bath tub and a great view of the Taal lake, not bad huh?

From there, we had a quick snack at a near Mc Donald's place and head on to Picnic Grove and Peoples park. Wala kaming sasakyan kaya nag tricycle lang kami. Kinontrata kami of course, he asked for 500 pesos. We agreed and then we head on our way.

Zip Line at the Picnic Grove. Mark is willing to try this but not me. I'm not the adventurous type.
Kabayo nga ayaw ko sumakay e. Nagsawa lang sila kakaalok, he he.

Medyo gabi na when we arrived at the tallest part of Tagaytay, the Palace in the sky/Peoples Park.
Sooobrang lamig dyan. Ang lakas lakas pa ng hangin.

After this, we were able to stop by at a convenient store to grab some stuff then I insisted that we stop by BAG of BEANS and the MUSHROOM BURGER store to grab some food to take out for our dinner. Our tricycle service was gracious enough to take us there.

The next day, as suggested by Laarnie, a good friend of ours, we decided to go to Leslie's for Brunch.

We had Sinigang na hipon, Sizzling mixed seafoods and Leslies Special Turon for dessert.

We ate here in the resto's "kubo type" dinning area

After checking out from the hotel, i insisted to go to Sonya's Secret Garden to buy some of its famous Parmesan Cheese hopia.
Taken at Sonya's Panaderia. We bought some hopia and kapeng barako for mama. I also bought a pot of basil and mint plants.

I just can't resist not having my picture taken in this set up.

We're very fortunate that we had the chance to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary together considering hubby frequently leaves for work.
Sweetie, having you with me, during this special time means a lot to me more than anything.
Looking forward to more anniversaries to celebrate.
You and Marianna means everything to me.
I love you always.
