One of my favorite place to go out of Manila is Tagaytay City.  Cool but warm people welcoming you as they are used to so many tourists both foreign nationals and locals flocking to their beautiful City which is also one of the many provinces of the Country.

I always go to provinces and enjoy LIFE and SERENITY it brings.

BATANGAS CITY

This is my province on my mother side.  I am much closer to my relatives here so I am always visiting whenever I am in the Country.  Batangas is famous for beautiful beaches and rugged forest.  Here a glimpse of where I spent some of my childhood memories with my cousins and many relatives.  It changed though as nowadays the same road that I walked through when the road is made of lava stones are now a busy concrete road to a famous resort and to other “Barrio” district/suburb.  I found out that a big Corporation is buying out some big lands here and I knew having a land here is like having a goldmine so it pays to keep it for the next generation to enjoy than have this Commercial giant owned some pieces of it, nature will not be the same again.  As the younger generation leaves for Manila or abroad it is sad but it is inevitable this might happen.

And here where I spent some of our days with my favorite aunt who also takes care of me while I was a child.  Lots of foods to go nearby… pomelo, papaya, kamias for sour soup and I consider this as a fruit as I ate this so much when I was a child. So many fruits and vegetables here not to mention that Batangas is known for it’s coffee beans.

And yes this is TRUE… for me at least.
