The ache to go on a road trip down
south finally found a way.
MetroDeal made this real when I saw their Starcove Resort Hotel Day Tour with Free Lunch promo deal. I grabbed 4 vouchers and booked. Then last Saturday, off to Balayan, Batangas
we went with Son driving for us .
DH depended on his mobile phone’s GPS for direction. However, it took us longer travel time coz our driver was very cautious with his driving.‘Twas already 12nn but we were yet in Tagaytay. Having had no breakfast, these people who were hungry as a horse decided to stop over in Mahogany Market in Tagaytay for lunch. Luckily, we still found a space to park coz the eateries were already packed with people. We had the usual Tagaytay fare of hot Bulalo, Crispy Tawilis, Lechon Kawali (not for me) and the beef Papaitan with free eat all you can twig of sweet “Señorita” bananas. For that satisfying lunch for four people, we paid only P780. Not bad, huh?!
only to pull over again to verify directions..
Meantime, while the 3 people were arguing which way to go, I caught sight of the mango tree bearing fruits on the fenced area of the road. I know it’s not right but I always have that desire of picking hanging mango fruits from the tree whenever I see one. Thus, the moment I saw those mangoes within reach ,I let loose! Happiness!! Lol!
Although doubtful, daughter asked to try follow where GPS was pointing at. Lo and behold!, a security guard opened the gate and confirmed it is the Starcove Resort. Oh my! We should have not doubted the GPS before hand. It's indeed reliable! Shame on us!
This place is definitely worth visiting especially with group of friends or with special someone or by families like us. Just bear with the narrow roads you’re gonna traverse without any signage to follow. :) Nonetheless, it's all worth it anyway!
Thanks for the visit everyone! Hope you are having a great week!

Janina, our most beautiful daughter, (she’s one and only,
that’s why. Lol! ) celebrated her birthday last Wednesday, Feb. 6. It was just a simple family affair of
dining out together. We chose to try the
newly opened fine looking restaurant near our place so we wouldn’t need to
travel far from home. I guess, we will
never get tired of having Chinese cuisine over and over again! Don Cuisine it is, this time around, a
relatively newly opened (as earlier mentioned) Chinese Restaurant along the end stretch of
Commonwealth Ave, in Fairview, Quezon City.
Btw, let it be known this is not a paid review. Nevertheless, I’m calling the attention of the people of Don Cuisine. How about giving us discount next time we visit huh?! Lol!

Next, we passed by the SM Clark. My ‘tourist guide’ sis, brought me there when I mentioned I haven’t been to that specific SM branch yet just to satisfy my curiosity. Thereafter, we headed to Subic in less than an hour via SCTex. When in Subic, it’s hard not to be enticed and be lured to big discount sales. OC struck again when I saw my favourite Fitflops on sale together with other popular named footwear. Hmmn.. partly blaming big sis on that. Haha.. but no regrets. I love my loot!
You think I was drained and exhausted? Nah.. not me! We were up before sunrise the next morning to catch the breathtaking seascape in the nearby fishing village and picnic park. I really love seeing bodies of water and sis knows that. She may not know it, but I appreciate all the efforts she throws on me every time! For these and everything else, including the sumptuous food she always prepares for me, I wanna say "Thank You, Ate!"
