When In Tagaytay


So this happened.. Unexpectedly. We made several plans to spend the long weekend but cancelled it due to some reasons, most was personal and other errands. Then Apple asked us to join her to take home her kid, Jeya, home which is in Tagaytay. I was hesitant at first but then realized that I have nothing to do, so I said yes.

Around 8:00 AM, we met at Market! Market! and then went to Pasay to go see Apple and her kids. Due to early call-time, most of us are starving, so we headed first at McDonalds to grab something to eat while waiting for Apple.

Apple came in past 9:00 AM or around 10:00 AM. We went to the bus station at the back of Mcdonalds and rode a bus heading to Nasugbu, Lian. We paid 75.00 PHP and asked the conductor to drop us off at Pink Sister to visit and of course, pray. It took 2-3 hours I guess before we reached our destination. Apple on the other hand, together with her kids and Chelsi went to Jeya's home first to take their things and bags. We decided to wait them at Pink Sister instead.

So off to Pink Sisters we went. Since we're not wearing appropriate outfit, we're wearing shorts btw, the guard at front asked us to go to the side instead. We get papers and ballpens to write our prayer. This is my first time here by the way and the feeling is kinda awkward. Lol. After writing our prayer, we decided to explore the area.

After half an hour I guess, we met up with Apple, Chelsi and kids, we decided to go to Mahogany Market to have our lunch 'cause it's already 12:00 PM. We went to the second floor of the Market and saw different stalls that offers different foods. And you should know that lunch without having bulalo here in Tagaytay will never be considered as lunch. Get it? Haha. Perfect for the weather! We ordered bulalo, sisig and softdrinks.

Bulalo was sooo good and its broth, I enjoyed their sisig as well! It was pure meat unlike others that has too fats in it. How much did we spend for this fab lunch? Less than 1000.00 PHP, divided by 5 person so 200 each. Cheap but delicious lunch indeed.

After lunch we decided to go to Picnic Grove. We rode two jeepneys, I can no longer remember the routes, srsly. All I know was we're in Picnic Grove already! At the entrance, we paid for 50.00 PHP for walk-ins. If you have a car then you will pay for a different amount for the parking.

Then we start walking, the weather was hot but the wind was so cool. We stopped first at Sky Rider and enjoyed the view. Looking around the area, you'll see different stalls selling pasalubongs and shirts. You can have some pictures with this little horse also!

We decided to go down and explore the other area.

And we decided to stop at one cottage. There's fee for cottage by the way but we didn't get one. We just stop here temporarily to see the view and take some pictures of it.

The Wonderless

When we got tired taking pictures, we decided to go take this 500 meters walking in the wild. Lol, idk what it's called. We just walked there and follow the other people. We stopped here to see people taking Ziplines. I'd love to try it but they are scared so I decided to watch the others do it. We continue to walk and start taking pictures again.

After an hour or so, we finished the trail with this view.

We decided to take some rest after our walk. It felt so good to sit on this green grass and breathe some fresh air. I was so tired, I just want to lay here for hours.

Rest for a while

For keeps
There were hammocks also that you can use for 20.00 PHP. Chelsi paid one for picture purposes only, lol. I am so tired that time, I just sat on the grass and check my phone while they are enjoying the view and of course, taking pictures. *When will they stop taking pictures anyway?*

Against the light

Around 5:00 in the afternoon, we decided to go back and head to Starbucks to get some coffee before going home. We took tricycle instead of jeep because all of the jeep passing by was packed. We reached SBD around 15 mins or so, the area was packed as well. After getting some space, everyone's ready for pictures again! Lol.

6:00 PM, we decided to go home. We rode tricycle again and went to Olivares to get some pasalubong while Apple took Jeya home. It took awhile before she got back and we are all tired and sleepy. It took us 2-3 hours before we reach Ayala and decided to get off 'cause Chelsi and Diona need to relieve theirself.

It was already 10:00 PM I guess when I reached home. I just transferred all the pics from my camera and then decided to lay down and take a rest. It was tiring yet happy adventure for us. My feet is still sore right now but it's okay. I am looking forward for our next adventures! Yayy.

Weekend Eats: Joey's Burger And Sausages

Weekend Eats: Joey's Burger And Sausages

Last Sunday, I was asked by Yosh if we're gonna go outside and dine somewhere; I didn't answer that 'cause I am not in the mood to go outside. All I wanna do is lay down on our bed and watch TV, lol, #LazySunday indeed but being lazy doesn't mean I am not hungry. I asked him to go out and buy me some burgers at Minute Burger which is our go-to food but he showed me Joey's page on Facebook instead.


 Tuktukan Branch


So I gave in and we went to their Tuktukan Branch around 5:00 or 6:00 PM and lucky us, the place was not yet packed.  By the way, this is not our first time here.

Menu

They only have this large menu board together with their prices. They now offer Carbonara and Filipino style spaghetti as well which are not yet included on the board; it was only posted outside. Once you have your pick, you need to go to their counter and then pay for your order.


Joey's Burger and Sausages
(L-R) Joey's Special, Classic Carbonara and Whatta Burger

Whatta Cheeseburger
Whatta Cheeseburger (90.00PHP)

My order was their Whatta Cheeseburger; it costs PHP 75.00 ala carte and PHP 90.00 with fries. You need to add PHP 15.00 or so if you would like to order softdrink to your meal. Whatta Cheeseburger is beef patty, lettuce, onion, tomato, cheese and dressing on a toasted bun.
  

Carbonara
Classic Carbonara (75.00 PHP)
I also ordered carbonara 'cause I am hungry af  it's new on their menu.  ♥ They now offer Filipino style Spaghetti and this Classic Carbonara; they come with garlic bread btw. It's indeed creamy and tasty, we're just a little dissapointed 'cause that one that we saw on Facebook which was posted by other customer had lots of bacon bits and I only saw two or three in my pasta. But it's fine, we just laughed it off 'cause it's delicious naman and it's affordable too, imagine for only PHP 75.00?

Joey's Special
Joey's Special (135.00PHP)

Yosh ordered their Joey's Special; a beef patty, bacon, egg, chorizo, tomato, lettuce, onion, cheese, dressing on a toasted bun. It has lots of ingredients (is that the right term for burgers? Lels) but you can't really see it on the picture 'cause I am too lazy to get up and look for that angle.



WHAT WE LIKE:

• Affordable burgers and lots of choices

• Accessible and has three branches (Tuktukan, Calzada and Mandaluyong)

• They serve your order within 10 mins or so.

• They now serve soft drinks! Before it was only water and their iced tea.



WHAT WE DON'T LIKE: 

• The beef patty was too salty  but Yosh told me that it's fine; I've read this comment as well on their FB page.

• Their servings of fries on their "combo" meals are so small. BUT if you really want fries then you can add ala carte fries at PHP 30.00 or their Cheesy Potato Fries at PHP 50.00.

• Limited space.



Tuktukan Branch is located at Bagong Calzada, Tuktukan, Taguig City and opens at 4:00 PM to 12:00 AM. Calzada Branch at No.126 F. Manalo St., Brgy. Calzada-Tipas, Taguig and Mandaluyong Branch at Sgt. Bumatay St. Brgy. Plainview, Mandaluyong City.
