Weekend Story: Rest and Recreation + Tagaytay Meetup with Relatives

Last weekend was relaxing and fun! I had a restful Saturday (I slept until 1:00 p.m.) and on Sunday, the hubby and I drove up to Tagaytay to meet up with my aunts and cousins from my father’s side. My mom was with them (two of my aunts are her BFFs!) so we were able to see her, too.

If there’s something that a balikbayan wants to do upon setting foot again in his/her motherland, that’s to touch base with his/her relatives and friends. I was glad that my balikbayan aunt Laura (she’s my dad’s first cousin) did just that and also went out of her way to see places she had missed most while abroad. One of those places was Tagaytay and so yesterday, she went there with her group and invited us over. She even brought her two nieces (my second cousins) along so I could meet them. They would be coming from Sta. Rosa City in Laguna where she currently stays at her two nieces’ place.

Our Weekend Getaway at Cross Winds Swiss Luxury Resort

Last weekend was all about rest and recreation. We had an overnight stay at Cross Winds Swiss Luxury Resort in Tagaytay. It was my SIL’s birthday last Saturday and she thought of taking us there for a weekend getaway.

We had a great time exploring the Swiss-inspired place, from the pine trees and the lush greenery to the beautiful Swiss-themed houses and the rest of the amenities. Truly, it was one weekend to remember. We just hung out in our room, ate our baon for lunch and snacks and had delivery food for dinner.

From Tagaytay and Back

Our Tagaytay weekend was a blast. Short but sweet. Finally, I’ve seen The Cliffhouse and even dined in one of its restaurants, Cafe Platito. Our overnight stay at Las Ventanas was quiet and serene. I loved the complimentary dinner, breakfast and full body massage they gave us. I am definitely writing about my pleasant Las Ventanas Tagaytay experience in my travel blog.

From Las Ventanas, we visited the Pink Sisters Chapel to say a little prayer. And then we headed to Mushroomburger for lunch. We were surprised to see this fast food resto filled with people. Did I mention they serve good-tasting mushroomburgers at very affordable prices?

Full Body Massage, Anyone?

Part of our overnight stay at a hotel here in Tagaytay is the complimentary one-hour full body massage. The fiancee and I had ours a few hours ago and we enjoyed it a lot. Personally, I just heart massages. If I were rich, I would get a massage twice or thrice a week.

Massages are good for the body and with the fast-faced life we lead, it would certainly make a big difference if we slow down once in a while and relax our tired muscles by getting a a good massage from a good masseur. By the way, the masseurs who gave us complimentary full body massage were really good at what they do. I regretted getting their contact numbers for home service purposes.

What’s with the Number 7?

I’ve always liked the number 7. It’s actually my most favorite number. I love how it looks: not too straight nor too twisted. It has just the right angles and lines. It looks very feminine but with lots of strength and vitality to me. From afar, it resembles a sexy but very confident woman. Up close and personal, it’s a real charmer. But I digress.

The beauty of number 7 lies in the fact that it marks a milestone in my romantic relationship. The fiancee and I just celebrated our 7th anniversary as couple last October 18. We were on our way home to Manila that time, back from our pleasurable 4D 3N KL and SG trip. Despite the lack of celebration, the day turned out to be special for us.
