I am honestly still hung-over from a most amazing weekend.
The H and I were invited to an out-of-town wedding on Sunday, so we decided to make a weekend trip of it, and brought the little one along for the ride.
Before getting to the wedding destination, however, we decided to spend the day in Tagaytay. It’s been ages since we were last there, so I was excited to soak in the cool weather, marvel at the fabulous view (it never gets old), try a new restaurant, and give A a fun-filled, enjoyable weekend.
Looks like I wasn’t the only one who was excited!
One of the weekend’s highlights was lunch at Marcia Adams.
Tucked away in a side street not far from Residence Inn and the Tagaytay Arch, Marcia Adams is a beautiful, rustic restaurant that can easily be mistaken for a Tuscan countryside home.
While the food is simple but flavorful, it is the ambience that is, for me, the biggest draw of this place. Big windows that overlook lush, green fields showcase the Tagaytay countryside at its best. Having just endured a hectic and stressful week, the serene landscape and relaxing ambience was just what the doctor ordered.
Prior to the wedding, we also had time to sneak in a visit to the Animal Farm at Tagaytay Highlands.
I was amazed that they had a pretty decent selection of birds and animals.
As expected, A had a really great time! She enjoyed petting the parrot, was captivated by the eels and big fishes, and giggled when the monkey would make faces at her. She is definitely an animal-lover like her dada!
Finally, after all the family bonding, it was wedding time!
My colleague A, tied the knot with the love of his life K, in a beautiful, intimate and very personalized ceremony.
It made me want to get married all over again–hahaha!
I love how A was involved in all the details, designing everything from the invitations, to the banners, to the tablescape.
As you can see, he did an AMAZING job!!!
And ofcourse, it goes without saying, my team had an AMAZING time!
Alas, all good things must come to an end. But as we drove back to Manila in the heavy downpour, plans were already being made for our next out-of-town weekend–I can’t wait for it!
I wish it was the weekend already.
