Canyon Woods…

Canyon Woods

I keep on picturing this beautiful place in Tagaytay which is still vivid in my mind even if its been years since I’ve been there.

Then I recall, its in Canyon woods. I also recalled how traveling makes a person. Personally, it fills up my memory with sublime thoughts until I can’t hold it no more. And then after a wink, I started dreaming of another. Ready to immerse my mind into resplendent proliferation.

On our way to Canyon woods! papa driving for me and mama!

Canyon woods (aside from it’s name), at first glance or literally the first time I’ve entered the gates, it was able to bring me somewhere else which felt like I was not in my own country not to mention the colder altitude at that specific time.

We’re here!

Good thing I was with a shawl (in anticipation), as the wind sends specks on your shoulders every now and then.

This is a place ideal for busy individuals who yearns for tranquility and requiescence. It is literally a “breath of fresh air”.

I have never been so relaxed when I got here…

I’m lovin’ bridges!<3

Each gaze directs you to rawness. It was so relaxing. I enjoyed walking a few blocks while I won’t when I am at my usual environment.   The clubhouse is specially extra-ordinary.

At the Indoor Clubhouse.

The lavish food they offer, there are pools and a spa which we noticed was similar to Sanctuario in Malate only to find out it’s one and the same as I was going through their brochure.

Miss the laughter! =)

I was able to visit the place twice. Honestly, I was wishing for a third one to stay for a few days.  The first one I was with my former staff, we were accompanied by my parents and the second one was with my high school friends because I was able to convince them to witness the grandeur of the place.

Both experience were unforgettable. Till Then! =)

Coming from Canyon woods, we opted for a coffee which is best for the weather Tagaytay is famous for.

Coffee and friends! Good combi! ❤

Tagaytay is such a gifted place. As a whole, Philippines is. I could not fathom God’s ingenuity to create a world with such unending beauty.


The place will allow you to take a peek at Taal volcano too!

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
