A bunch of my dad’s friends (I truly think they think I’m a bb so yeah, they are still his friends) went to Tagaytay to look at some land — all with a common interest to eventually live anywhere but Manila. (or at least have a getaway)

This group was gathered by the artist Reg Yuson, who already had some land in Tagaytay along with (or next to –kind of) Ling Quisimbing, another artist.

This day was divided into 3 parts according to how develop the land was: bare land, eccentric/quirky/has character land and f”in resort-type-land-but-private-so-dream-on land

Of course we had breakfast first which was perfect because we were near another artist’s place, WHICH WAS MAGNIFICENT. like a jungle that you know it’s safe.

with it’s own herb garden

A head quarters type area was where we all parked our cars. It was owned by an old guy with his typical old guy stories. He was the one selling us the land and was essentially our tour guide for the day. YES a whole freakkin’ day — this can be overwhelming for a city folk like me who likes her naps — which I know was supposed to be a given in the province…but whatevs haha

This was when he was telling us why quitting smoking is actually bad for him. (yea, sure it is.)

About a drive a way was Ling’s studio in the province.

Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway) : this is the eccentric/quirky/has character land that I was referring to.

The last place was the one that made all are jaw drop. I don’t know if I can say whose house (rather hacienda) this belongs to because we really just entered with barely his/her permission. haha #rebels #YOLO (hahaha)

The rooms (or are houses by normal standards) differs by their themes and their use. (like Japan-Video room)

wouldn’t mind this view everyday

After awhile, the consensus was we like the small and quirky place better. (yeah. 1. as if we can afford it 2. let’s just go to a resort 3. or get invited over for a legit stay)

By this time, I was aching to go back.
