Tagaytay: Bag of Beans

We have been going to Tagaytay a lot of times and have been eating in different restaurants. With the number of restaurants to choose from, there were some that we overlooked. But during this visit in Tagaytay, we decided to try dining in Bag of Beans.

The name of the restaurant sounds like it's a coffee place, but it is more than what it seems. The place inside is big - separated into 2 parts. They have an area that is covered and air-conditioned, then another is out in the open with a fresh feeling having trees on the side.

Kota Kinabalu + Singapore Itinerary : Next Destination

It has been a habit for us and our friends to have a vacation outside the country every year, to leave the work behind to de-stress and enjoy what the world has to offer.  This 2011, we are very excited to spend our days in Kota Kinabalu and Singapore.

The whole itineray was created by ourselves, based on the places we wanted to explore.  We arranged a local tour for Kota Kinabalu, particularly for teh Kiulu Rafting Tour and Poring Hot Spring, since we thought that it would be better than to arrange transportations of our own.  But for the Tunku Abdul Raman Marine Park, we decided to do it on our own.

For Singapore, we will be travelling the whole trip on our own.

Estimated budget for the whole trip is 40,000 pesos for 8 days.  This amount includes all airfares, accomodations, tours and entrance fees, transportation fees, and basic food.

LTC Pick for March: Surviving Taraw

Food for thought.
Taraw cliff is situated on the left side of the El Nido town shore. It is a limestone rock formation that from previous centuries, maybe a home for thousands of sea creatures but today it holds nests for swiftlets also known locally as balinsasayaw. These are birds that can only be found in El Nido, Palawan and they only build their nests in mountain cliffs such as Taraw. As many would know, these birds probably have the most expensive saliva in the whole world, for each kilogram costs around 120,000 Pesos (3,000 USD). Their saliva is the main ingredient in the famous Nido Soup. After reading this blog, you would probably know why they have the most expensive saliva in the world.
