Road Trip + Food Trip (Part 1)

Sorry to post this story a little late. I was supposed to make this entry last August 3 but thanks to Globe Broadband intermittent connection in my Aunt's house I simply can't (update - turns out that the modem is the problem which Globe replaced just last week).
Enough said and time for me to narrate our Road Trip and Food Trip with my college friends. Let's turn a week back.....

Last August 1 we decided to have our get together by having a road trip within Tagaytay. It's a sort of pre-celebration of my birthday as well. Since one of my college friends owned a car which she brought we have the luxury to tour around the city.

My friend will be coming from QC so she designated my other friends where will be the pick-up points for them. As for me and Joan P (JP) we will be meeting in WalterMart Dasma and meet them in Olivarez Plaza in Tagaytay since we are only 30-45mins away.

I was busy texting everyone making sure they are coordinated. To my dismay, my mobile phone suddenly went dead (battery empty) and s****d me, I didn't bring the charger. I brought an extra mobile phone which is Nokia but then there is a problem with its battery losing its charge easily. Hubby offered his mobile but for some weird reason, his mobile can't read (?) my sim. Reluctantly, I decided to bring the Nokia phone and used it for the time being praying that I don't have to use it most of the time on our Tagaytay tour. I was running late since Randiej wanted me to accompany him in the kitchen while he was eating breakfast. Sigh!

We are late when me and JP meet them in Olivarez Plaza. All of them are busy inside the car eating cobcorn (Ella, Rachel, Florence and Beth). There's a drizzle outside so we hurriedly went in. JP brought her daughter along with her on the trip. Ella and Rachel told us that the itinerary for the day was change. Instead of touring Tagaytay we will be going to Liliw Laguna instead. I was baffled because as far as I know it is far (way way far) from Tagaytay. I was debating if I should make a protest and be the KJ in our group but bite back my tongue instead. I was thinking that all of them might want to go there (except for me) and be interested in buying slippers/sandals/shoes.

First we stop by Pink Sisters to offer a brief prayer and submit our petitions. Once inside the church, the rain starts pouring hard. Good thing that we are all under the roof. So much for the thought of having our pictures taken in their garden. We waited for a few minutes before running back to the car. This time we went to RSM for our lunch.
Since me and JP is celebrating our birthday this month, our friends asked us for a treat which we did :) Our lunch is composed of one order of Bulalo (yummy!), one stuffing of St.Peters Fish (Tilapia), Enchiladas and Pork Sisig. While waiting for our order, we snag the chance to have our pictures taken (thanks to their friendly staff):


And our much awaited lunch....

Our tummies are all happy with what we ate thus here's the final look of the food....

After paying our bill, we hurriedly went to their restroom. Since their restroom is so nice, we didn't miss the chance to have our pics taken inside (ahahahaha! photo addicts!)....

After our picture taking in the restroom (hehehe) we headed back to the car for our next location. And that is Liliw Laguna. I was apprehensive to join them because I knew that a lot of time will be wasted traveling but since knowing them, eventually I will heard a lot of protests and some guilty lines like it seldom happens that we are on a roadtrip or we are already here, why spoil the moment. So even there are doubts in my mind, I went ahead to their plan of going to Liliw Laguna. Due to the nonstop raining, Beth (who owns the car) had to drive carefully since there's a child on board and her car is only 4 months old. We exit in Sta. Rosa then into SLEX.
