Taiwan: Taipei 101

Hearing and seeing it on television already gives you awe.  What more to see it in real form?  Considered as one of the "7 Wonders of the World" by Newsweek Magazine and "7 Wonders of Engineering" by The Discovery Channel, having it stand right in front of your very eyes was just amazing!

It used to be the tallest building in the world, standing at 1,670 feet.  I wanted to see it when it still claimed that throne, but didn't had the chance at that time.  It is now ranked as 2nd in the world, just next to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The structure of Taipei 101 reflects an Asian pagoda, a bamboo stalk, and a stack of Chinese money boxes.  The Asian pagoda represents a tower that links the earth and the sky.  The bamboo stalk is a symbol of learning and growth.  Then the Chinese money boxes is a symbol of abundance.

Tagaytay: Sonya's Not-So-Secret Garden

The story of the Secret Garden is well-known for its tale of a lonely little girl who discovers the entrance to a secret garden after being magically led to it by a robin. Well, we weren't led by a robin and we had only a printed-out map to guide us, but one sunny Saturday, we decided to load up on gas and visit the Philippine's version of a beautiful garden restaurant. Sonya's might not be a secret for quite some time now, but the magic - the peaceful serenity of being surrounded by lush greenery - still remains.
