San Juan, Batangas

House on a hill

Last Wednesday afternoon was really an adventure for me, Sha, Vien, Jhomz, Precious and LG. We went to San Juan, Batangas for an overnight stay. We spent the night at the house of Vien’s grandmother which is located on a hill. πŸ˜€ The lot in front of the house was where the film Spirits was shot and the lot beside the house was the location shoot of a certain Alma Moreno movie that I cannot recall.

The area around the house is secluded. Far away from the noise. In fact, Jhomz mistook the mooing of the cow a ringing tone of a mobile phone. πŸ˜€ After having a late dinner, we had a bottle of tequila. I cannot remember how many shots I took. I drank it without the salt and the lime. I just ate some sauteed mushrooms though after every shot. πŸ˜€ After the tequila, I had one can of San Mig Light. Since I’ve had enough alcohol already, I decided to take a rest. I woke up early but then I slept again while Sha, Vien and Precious are preparing for our trip to Laiya.

We had breakfast and then we went to have a walk to have our fresh buko juice fix. πŸ˜€ The life there was really laid back. It’s as if the time is being slowed down by a quarter of what we’re experiencing in the city. Then, we finally traveled to White Cove Beach Resort in Laiya.

In this resort, the entrance fee is 125 bucks per head. Of course, the cottage is not included. The price of the cottage is at around 800 bucks. In this part of Laiya, the water is not deep. If you really want to go swimming, you have to go far from the shore line. The sand around the area is not that fine and is not as white like that of Boracay’s sand. Still, I like the poles setup there with flags for ala Cream Silk photo ops. πŸ˜€

I was waiting for sunset, but then there was not really a good sunset view there at all just like my experience in Calatagan, Batangas.

After that, before going back to Manila, we stopped by at an eatery to have a taste of special Batangas Lomi. πŸ˜€ Each special lomi costs 30 bucks. Cheap huh? πŸ˜€ Check out my multiply for more pictures. πŸ˜€
