Just a few weeks ago me and my sister were planning to do an out of town trip to celebrate the wedding anniversary of our Dad and Mom...Having two oldies plus two toddlers coming along is quite a hassle, because the older ones would not enjoy long drives, long walks and tiring trips while the younger ones has all the energy and excitement to run and roll over from time to time and that for sure is a bit uncomfortable for me, because I don't have a nanny who'll run after the two kids.
So i was thinking of some place just a few kilometers away from Batangas where we can drive back home in no time. A place which is close to nature because the oldies would definitely love the fresh air and of course we like to try a new dining experience with good food and a unique trip that the whole family of all ages will enjoy. Until i came across this buying site and saw Laguna getaway deals. There's nothing really impressive with the offer except that the price per person is within the budget! But thinking that it was just in Laguna which is an hour drive from our place and the thought that it was a lake (so there is fresh air) plus green water "rafting" sounds very new to me, i grabbed the deal right away and called the merchant that same day for reservation.

It was a good start for the week to meet up with some good old friends! I always love reunions, and the food trip associated with it, because it's the perfect time to enjoy good food in a good place over nice long talks with old time friends. I've been out the whole day to meet up with my college housemates Analie and Monaliza after 6 long years... so happy that we got an "unplanned" lunch date and ended up strolling around the City of San Pablo Laguna and the province of Tiaong Quezon... Glad to meet the Pasco Family and I'm so grateful for the warm welcome at their home. We had a lovely lunch at Palmeras Garden Restaurant which they said was one of the Best in San Pablo.
