Some of my blockmates and I wanted to make most out of the last few days of the sembreak before the second semester starts so we decided to plan a trip to Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna yesterday, November 4.
Unfortunately, we did not foresee that the theme park was closed from Mondays to Wednesdays. We did not allow it to defeat our objective for the day, however. We spontaneously decided to drive to Tagaytay and then back to Manila to spend the rest of the night at Star City. It turned out to be a great spontaneous plan, definitely satisfying.
We left Diliman just before noon and arrived at Tagaytay around half-past one. On the way to Tagaytay, just to complete our frustration with Enchanted Kingdom, we had to pass by the place to really see for ourselves that it was indeed closed for the day. Anyway, when we got to Tagaytay, some of my blockmates were looking for bulalo, so for lunch we settled at this bulalo restaurant along the highway with a great view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.
We had a very satisfying lunch of bulalo, lutong macao (chopsuey of sorts with lots of meat and seafood) and sizzling chicken. We were so full on the way back to Manila. Despite that, we stopped by Rowena’s along the highway to Sta. Rosa to buy some pastries and other pasalubong. Before anything else, many thanks to Rex, from block A, who we tagged along and went with us. It was his van that we rode all throughout.
I shall write about our Star City adventure in another blog entry. My block is unbelievable sometimes, I’m off to a swimming party and lunch with my blockmates, again. Talagang nilulubos ang liwaliw bago ang buwan-buwang pag-aaral na magsisimula bukas. I don’t remember having this much wholesome fun in months.
