When life gets tough each day,
smile and your fears will go away.
look at the bright side of life,
and be thankful that you’re alive.

Life is never meant to be easy,
just go with the flow and stay happy.
Pray to God and you will see,
your faith in him will set you free.

We just celebrated my mom’s 50th birthday at Tagaytay, and since it’s a golden year celebration, why not celebrate it in a wonderful way in an awesome place?


@ Crosswinds, Tagaytay

My mom, which is the ‘travel guru and planner’ of our family happened to saw this at Airbnb, decided to spend her birthday in this cool place right away. We stayed at Grand Quartier 2 condotel and it was like we’re in a European holiday ๐Ÿ™‚


Our room also fit the Swiss style setting ๐Ÿ™‚ #perfectweekend



We did a little tour around the place and I love how they maintained the whole area I mean the place is so full of pine trees( better than Baguio, the “city of pines”) and the Swiss inspired houses and structures, I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚



They even have a ‘ Christmas store’ and a ‘Santa’s house’ for kids! We didn’t go inside because of the ” for kids only” sign (LOL) but I bet its full of toys and chocolates.


adorable Santa’s house for kids! (only)ย 

  • Nov 27 – Mom’s Birthday !

We woke up early to greet and surprise mama! ๐Ÿ™‚ lol our surprise was kinda fail since the night earlier, we tried sooo hard to hide our gift and card and i think she caught us but just wouldn’t tell us :DD probably because she doesn’t want to spoil the fun. Anyways she was happy with our gift and our DIY card!


our DIY card โค made with love.

It was a foggy morning and at first I thought it would be bring rain but no ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll miss this kind of mornings.


We took a quick breakfast and we went around the place again, this time with our car. We decided to look for some picture perfect spots and guess what, its not difficult to find a good one!


ย The pine trees around makes me feel that I’m in Baguio again, just without the pollution. Everything was just fresh and green.
