Weekend Story: Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road Trip (a.k.a. #PippoDay 2014)

The hubby and I, along with my mom and two sisters, went on a road trip yesterday. It was the 28th of September and we were remembering our little angel Pippo. Destinations were Tagaytay and Nasugbu. We left our Bacoor home at around 8:45am and reached Nasugbu two hours after. We were grateful for the nice weather (alternating between sunny and cool), the fun experience and our safe return back home.

In Nasugbu, we heard the morning mass (11:00am) at the Transfiguration Chapel housed inside Calereuga Retreat Center.

We simply loved the place! Who wouldn’t when every nook and cranny is postcard-perfect? It’s a great place to commune with nature and strengthen our relationship with God.

I just found out Caleruega charges entrance fee at P30 per person. It’s waived when you arrive early (between 10:30am to 11:30am) to hear the morning mass. You can also enter through the side gate (near the church) during this period. Normally, visitors enter through the main gate which is quite a long (but leisurely) walk if you’re going to the church.

In Tagaytay, we took my two sisters to Cliffhouse. It was their first time there and they liked how beautiful and well-maintained the place is.

When lunchtime came, we dined at Mushroomburger. For merienda, we settled for Cafe Breton, one of the cafes/restos at Cliffhouse.

The hubby and I have decided to go on a road trip during Pippo’s day (September 28th) starting yesterday. The main agenda is to visit a church to pray for his well-being in heaven. Of course, we may add other things/activities to it, too. It’s gonna be a little tradition of ours. We have even started using a hashtag (#PippoDay) so we could easily look back at our past adventures.

    I love the way this chapel has been designed. It’s not that large, but it exudes a grand “presence”. A small and intimate chapel makes one’s churchgoing experience more heartfelt somehow :).

    *sigh* I really need to revisit Tagaytay soon.

      I love the design, too, and how it’s situated on a hill. The gardens are well-maintained and the entire complex was very calm and quiet during our visit despite the many people walking around. :)

    Oh wow, the Taal Lake view! So beautiful! I wish I could see it someday!

  5. Kriska Marie says:

    Nice photos! Especially the Taal Lake view! Awwww…and now I suddenly miss Tagaytay!

    • lifein says:

      Thanks Kriska! I’m sure you miss it, and the whole country for that matter, because you’re currently in a foreign land. Hehe. :)

    Caleruega!! Walang tao na hindi na-mesmerize sa Caleruega.

    Have you seen the other new chapel?
