Ate Bob Goes to Tagaytay!


With the foggy background, you can't see the lake and the crater.


At the Adventure Jungle.


To pacify the wounded heart and soul of Ate Bob for the sudden departure of her p.a.. (see: http://thirdy25.blogspot.com/2012/10/one-liner-new-pa.html),  I brought her to Tagaytay over the weekend.  It was quick and brief at the same time since it kept on drizzling the whole time.

Initially we planned on going to national museum and then to the national library (It will have to wait next weekend) but was changed at the last minute when I mentioned to her if she wanted take a look at Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. We went to Picnic Grove as there was no other place to go to have a better view of the lake.  I was wrong.  The fog was thick and the lake and its crater is barely visible. But you can still see it.

She was super excited as it was her first time. Even though it was drizzling, people still came in droves in Tagaytay. We paid P50.00 each for the entrance fee which I think is not reasonable at all because the toilets are not well maintained. The staircase going down to the little huts doesnt have railings. If your a grumpy old woman, you'll end up at the bottom of the ridge if you dont have a companion negotiating the stairs. There's no trash can in the huts which makes the place dirty because irresponsible people throws their trash anywhere.

Just the same, me and Bob were able to unwind in the windy, foggy and cool Tagaytay over the weekend. Baby Dax stayed home because look at her! She has swollen eyes, clogged nose and profuse coughing.


Poor little duckling she is sick.

Hope Baby Dax is better now! And Ate Bob looked like she had fun :)

Anyways, hopefully the P50 fee for the picnic grove will be put to good use, the cr and the grounds itself doesn't appear to be well maintained at all.

Pero nice put-back, pre. Mukang masaya naman si Baby Dax kahit nagkasakit. Baka sudden change of weather lang yan.

My son had the same condition. He wasn't able to enjoy Disney World in Orlando when he was 3. Cough, hives, itchy red eyes and hika. So I consulted him to an allergist/asthma care doctor. Nagnana na nga yong eyes nya. Results were he's allergic to trees, pollen, grass, alikabok and pets. Di maiwasan unlike sa food. Good thing no allergies with meds and food.

Patingnan mo ang little duckling mo before it gets worst. I got panicked na when my son's eyes looked like gold fish na. He had the worst case of Allergic conjunctivitis. Kala ko kakayanin lang ng ordinary allergy meds. Di pala. :(

It's a pity that you weren't able to get a full clear view of the volcano. It's really nice that you take out your kids to see natural wonders. Nowadays some parents would prefer to stick the kids on TV screens or hand them tablets to play with.

Maybe you're also the first parent I've ever heard who had the intention to take his children to the museum. Thank God for fathers who appreciate culture and history and has the sense of duty of conveying them to their kids!

Poor Baby Dax! I hope she get better! These kids are really pretty and cute!
