My love for Tagaytay City and the view of Taal Volcano knows no bounds. I would willingly live in this city if our bank account permits us. Sadly, we can’t afford that, just occasional visits to this place.
We are yet to explore all of the restaurants in the area, if not all at least those that are recommended by foodies in the blogosphere. And of course a closer look at Taal Volcano. But for now, I’d satisfy my love for this place by looking at the photographs we took during our stay there.
I’ve been so busy
and also lazy these days that I missed a lot of updates here and in my other blogs. That’s partially true, since my non existent mailbox is quite busy these past few weeks. I finally received the package from Willa. For some reason, travelling time of mails between Canada and Philippines, Cubao post office in particular usually takes awhile. Anyway, I was a third placer (go me!) in Postcard Perfect’s The Royal Giveaway and I received these goodies! Yay!
Please excuse daughter’s little grabby hands. She wanted to play with the Mickey Mouse stickers, hahaha!
One day, the little toddler decided to play with Mommy’s postcards. It’s a good thing I was able to rescue this or I would have cried to death. *sobs* Looks like she loved the colors of this postcard. This was sent to me by Mommy Ruby of Postcard Enthusiast. (Thank you Mommy! )
Apo Reef is the second largest contiguous coral reef in the world and the largest one in the Philippines. The Apo Reef Natural Park consists of the three islands. Apo Reef is the largest among the three islands. It has a shallow lagoon with a depth of 2 meters to 10 meters surrounded by mangrove forest which serves as source of food, nursery and spawning ground of several coastal and marine species of fauna and sanctuary of birds. Its diverse corals are approximately 34 sq. km. of reef where different species of fish, marine mammals and invertebrates thrive.
One of my dream destinations is Boracay. I’m so glad that Vix of Mum Writes sent this to me. Thanks Vix!
At the back of the card: Boracay (Malay, Aklan) has powdery white sand and crystal clear waters, one of the world’s best beaches.
Like I said, I’ve never been to Boracay but it’s becoming more and more popular to tourists both locally and internationally. Just look at the postcards and the photographs found online, no explanation needed.
Did you know that Boracay ranked #2 in Trip Advisor’s Top 25 Beaches in the World for 2011?
Not only that, Boracay is also ranked #4 in Top 10 Islands in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2011.
Oh, yeah! Something we Filipinos should be really proud of.
And please, please, please, keep in mind that “it’s Boracay, not Bora!” (read the story about that here.)
Lastly, thanks to Willa of Postcard Perfect. I won in her giveaway and I will be receiving some cool stuff from Canada! What a way to welcome August.
This week’s Postcard Perfect entry is another postcard from Cambodia.
This postcard was also given to me by Postcrossing Mom. (Thanks Cheerful!)
According to Banteay Kdei Wikipedia:
Banteay Kdei, meaning “A Citadel of Chambers”, also known as “Citadel of Monks’ cells”, is a Buddhist temple in Angkor, Cambodia. It is located southeast of Ta Prohm and east of Angkor Thom. Built in the mid 12th to early 13th centuries AD during the reign of Jayavarman VII (who was posthumously given the title “Maha paramasangata pada”), it is in the Bayon architectural style, similar in plan to Ta Prohm and Preah Khan, but less complex and smaller. Its structures are contained within two successive enclosure walls, and consist of two concentric galleries from which emerge towers, preceded to the east by a cloister.
Such a beautiful place. I saw some photographs inside this temple and its amazing! I want to visit it someday.
