Summer Southbound Adventures - Nuvali & Tagaytay Highlands

Hey everyone! Welcome to another mommymeowmeow.com & fam road trip! This day was pretty much jam-packed with activities - biking, swimming, playing soccer, riding cable cars. Name it, we've probably done it! And of course, making sure everything is properly documented through photos and video clips :) 

I really love days like this...it's just so dreamy and in many ways, just perfect. Our A to Z family got to spend time with my parents, and with my younger cousins. Everyone's growing up/getting old so fast, I surmise it'll probably be just a few more years before they venture out on their own and who knows, maybe have a family of their own?! Hahahaha...

So we started the day at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna. It's a very nice place for adventure and nature lovers. Likewise, those who want to just chill would find this place to be really pleasant and relaxing. The place would welcome you with shops and restos but as soon as you head over to one of these Ayala subdivisions...just pure bliss! :)

In the afternoon we headed to Tagaytay Highlands to check on my overseas-based cousin's property. It was my first time to go around the development and it was just ah-mazing!!! Cable cars, lovely chapel, koi ponds, golf course and the works! Really has that rustic country club vibe going for it. Guess who we bumped into? Yepp....it was Serge Igonia, our wedding florist! Well because we weren't able to catch up anymore after the ceremony, I was glad to have that chance to thank him again for the amazing work he's done :)

Capping off this southbound trip with dinner at The Boutique Bed & Breakfast also in Tagaytay. Pork ribs, chili fries, mussels, baked chicken with juicy gravy and ice cream for dessert!! Yaaass!! Just so yummy! :)

A day truly well spent...looking forward to more adventures! :)
