Back from Tagaytay trip!



I have mentioned last night that I and 2 of my high school girlfriends are heading off to Tagaytay just for a day trip. We met up at 9AM and got to Tagaytay at about 11:30AM. Traffic in C5 was a little heavy. We had lunch at Buon Giorno!, yummy food!! :) 

Lunch: Green Iced Tea and Puttanesca (Penne)
Spicy!

Lunch: Mara, Apple and Abs at Buon Giorno!

After lunch, we headed off to different thrift stores (a.k.a UKAY!). 5 to be exact. The first one that we entered was HUGE! I forgot the name but it was really really huge, lots of clothes and bags and other things to choose from ranging from P50-P15o with 20%-30% less. I bought about 5 tops there. And then a dress at the second store and 5 tank tops at the last store (4 for P100). The 3rd and 4th stores we went to was a little pricey so no thank you. Apple and I were the only ones who bought stuffs while Abs just watched us try out the clothes. I spent not more than 1 thousand 500 pesos ($33) for the trip including my share with the gas money, lunch, thrift shopping, snack and my pasalubong (blueberry cheesecake tart, buko tart and tofu chips) at home!

We visited the church--Pink Sisters--after we were done thrift shopping. Said our prayers, dropped our intentions and took a few shots outside the church before going to Sta. Rosa Laguna for some halo-halo at Razon's but stopped by Rowena's (check out their SITE) to buy some food to take home first.

Merienda: Razon's Halo-Halo.

Off to Manila about 4:30PM. Travel from Tagaytay to SLEX (South Luzon Expressway) was smooth, no traffic at all but after SLEX--WOW! A little slow but still moving. EDSA on the other hand led us to take Pioneer and we literally went in circles. Good thing that circle included my place being just around the corner so my friends just dropped me off there. :)  Happy and exhausting day! I am so looking forward to our next out of town trip. Cebu? Cagayan? Batanes? Bohol? Okay, stop right there. FIND WORK FIRST! Haha! :)

That food looks good. The weird thing though, is that I've never had green tea that is actually green. It is usually like a growning green, not that light color like in the picture.

Wow, the food looks amazing. It's great that you hung out like that with your friends. I haven't done a girl's night out in I cannot even count the number of years.

NOVA: yeah, i had a great time. would've been a lot better if maybe we stayed longer or even over night. :) it was fun still.

IMPNERD: the food really IS good. i know, the green tea was a little lighter than usual but i guess it's because it was a bit like green iced tea shake or something, crushed ice=more water thus turning the color lighter than usual. i don't know. i'm guessing here. hahaha!

MARIA: my high school friends and i only see each other once a month and this is actually the first time we did something spontaneous like an out of town day trip for a change. Btw, the food was yummy! :D

you're right about the thrift shopping in Tagaytay,there are a lot of shops to choose from.been there and i can say that aside from the views,the weather,good food and the pony rides, thrift shopping equally excites Tagaytay's tourists.don't leave the place without trying it.

the pasta looks yummy and the green tea looks really refreshing. sana malapit lang ang Tagaytay dito sa amin :(

FEMMEPOWER: oh i agree! it was my first time to try out thrift shopping and it drove me crazy. it's just bad that i'm actually on a very very tight budget but still... i was able to buy almost a dozen of clothes. haha!

MAGGIE: where you from ba? go there some time. nako, ang sarap talaga nung pasta, i told the waiter pa na pa extra spicy. yummy!
