Taal, Batangas

When we went to Eagle Point Resort, we passed by one of the municipality of Batangas that really caught our attention because of the tourist attractions that we saw there which are the old houses and their old church. I feel like I'm in the Spanish era.

When we got here I didn't expect that I'll see a place like this in the Philippines. It reminded me of the brick road in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

It was my first time in Taal, Batangas and I was really amazed with the houses I saw there. They were preserving the old houses.

I'm a huge fan of anything vintage and that includes old houses. It's great to know that there's a place in our country that preserves and restores these kind of houses.

Taal is an interesting place indeed. I felt like I went back to the Spanish era.


Their city hall. We stopped over here to buy some stuff like water and chips. There was also an old church here which we visited before we headed back to Manila.

Gregorio Agoncillo's heritage house. History was my favorite subject when I was a student that's why I got really excited about the historical stuff I've seen.

We visited this church and offered some prayers since it was my first time, I made a wish. My sister told me to make a wish everytime I make a first time visit to a church. This church was built in


A touch of Spanish.


Inside the church. I think the long isle is perfect for wedding ceremony.


Even the sign of the comfort room is in Spanish.


 Another old house I saw near the church.

 We had our late lunch at Tagaytay. This is what I enjoy the most when going to Tagaytay, enjoying the beautiful view while eating.
 Bicol express.

 Tagaytay's speacialty - crispy fried tawilis.

Bulalo soup.

Can't wait to go back to Tagaytay and Batangas again. Paul and I rarely go swimming and spend the night at the resort. Spending a whole day and a night at the resort as a wonderful way to escape from my busy and stressful life.

  4. I was only there once... about 15 years ago. I never really got to travel in the Philippines because my parents were super strict. It's sad, really.
