last Saturday, Richard, Gabby & I went up to Tagaytay so early in the morning to have our breakfast at Sonya’s Garden. I just thought we ought to do something different once in a while. We left our house a little past seven and got there less than an hour later. It was a long, peaceful drive. Medyo nagbabadya ang bagyo but we were lucky that it didn’t really pour. Madilim lang ang langit. May nadaanan kaming fog (no visibility at all) pero short lang naman. Sonya’s Garden is situated 10kms past Tagaytay Rotonda. As you turn right to Buck Estate, you will need to drive (a rather rough road) 2 kms more. As i was driving, i thought to myself, “this better be worth it”. LOLZ. So yeah, we went there to try their breakfast. For P350 per head, they served us fried rice, adobong pork & chicken, boneless bangus, scrambled eggs (i would’ve preferred sunny side up kaso parang walang choice na binigay, hehehe), ripe mango and hot choco. When i made reservations two days before we went here, i knew that this is what they would serve. Kaso kasi, when we arrived, we saw two ladies already eating their breakfast pero they had hotdogs and ham. Kaya siguro nawalan ako medyo ng gana kasi i was hoping na meron din kaming hotdogs and ham hehehe…. But anyways, masarap naman ang almusal namin. Both Richard & I never miss breakfast kaya excited kami to start trying different breakfast meals of different restos. Kahit fastfood, solve kami dyan. Pag may konting pang-gastos, we splurge a bit. Pero siguro, if only for the breakfast, baka di ko na balikan ang Sonya’s. Siguro we would go back for their lunch and dinner (which i heard many raves about it) so yeah, we might try it sometime. Or try also their cottages (which costs P2,500-2,800 per head for overnight stay with meals), or their spa (if money permits it). And Gabby? We think she enjoys seeing flowers, and pebbles in the walkway. She enjoys walking and then point at something random. Hehehe…




After the breakfast and lots of picture taking, we decided to drop by at Caleruega since it’s near Sonya’s Garden. We think Gabby would enjoy it too, since madami ding flowers dito. Kaso, siguro napagod si Gabby, she was sleeping the whole time we were at Caleruega. Di nya tuloy nakita where her mommy & daddy got married. Haaayy memories…


Before lunchtime, we decided to head back home. As we passed by the new subdivisions in Sta. Rosa, i suddenly remembered Alpha’s post of a really nice house in Georgia Club. So we went there, hoping someone would show us the house (but not really sell us hehehe, nangangarap lang ng gising). A very friendly agent greeted us as we parked our car and even offered us a free lunch (ganito pala ang marketing strategy sa real estate hehehe). Sayang, kung may P12 million lang sana ako (huwahahahahaha!).


dreamhouse talaga. it’s so laid back, so sleep-over type of a place, so inviting, ang ganda ng environment, i could go on and on. The bigger house (P12M-ish) has 4 rooms, an attic, a maid’s room, an automatic garage door, a porch, and all rooms has their own bathrooms (yes, even the maids room).

Ok now back to reality. Tama na ang pagmumuni-muni.
