Last weekend, our DSS team (@work) decided for a roadtrip to Tagaytay as part of our team's year-end get together. I never been to Tagaytay (I'm not a fan of travel, lol ) for that matter. Ehem, I'm more of a homebody type of person, plus I hate inconvenience both physically and financially (especially the latter, lol). So even if I'm not crazy (naks, ako na) about the idea still, I enlisted myself (lol) - I may be a lazy butt but definitely not a boring one, you see.
At ten minutes past six in the morning, we're trailing EDSA going SLEX. While some already been to Tagaytay still they're not familiar on how to get there, thanks to the technology these days. Car and cellphone both equiped with a GPS so we're confident there's not much of a problem.
Yeah, we have actually arrived at Sky Ranch a bit too early at twenty five minutes past eight in the morning. Establishments were still closed, we had to wait for few more minutes for the restaurants to open. We had no breakfast prior to the travel. The weather wasn't very cooperative, few drops of rains can be felt on that chilly morning.
We're supposed to have our breakfast at Josephine, we heard there's a 'eat all you can' on their menu. But as I have mentioned, rains started falling so we just stayed at Sky Ranch and wait till the nearest eatery will be opened. Kenny Rogers was the first to accomodate customers.
We roamed the place a little bit and headed to the Puzzle Mansion. It's home of the world's largest collection of jigsaw puzzles. They're the Guinness title holder by the way. Getting there is a puzzle in itself. Matter of fact, we have turned the wrong way a couple of times. We just laughed at the experience saying it's part of the puzzle, lol. Funny because the people we have asked near the vicinity are clueless about the place. The first person was on vacation from the province, so no idea what the hell is puzzle mansion. It puzzled him too, lol. The second one actually pointed us to a completely different place. The third, the kids playing on the street. It looks like they knew the place and gave us a vivid description on how to get there. As we turned our way, we asked another group of people just to make sure those kids are legit. They don't know the place, uh oh. Another group of people and still don't know.
We found a car parked at the side of the highway and we stopped. As we opened our window the one beside the window immediately asked not even knowing who or what the person is doing. She asked where we are and how to get back to Manila. The man was peeing and actually taken aback there were suddenly people on his back, he immediately zipped his pants. Don't know if he's finished (lol) and motioned us to follow him. He said, we're in Tanauan and we have to follow him to get to the U-turn back to Manila.
