Tagaytay Getaway: LEE Boutique Hotel + Double Dates

Happy Tuesday guyssss! I just came back last night from our quick Tagaytay escape and I definitely feel recharged. Manila could be quite exhausting and physically/emotionally draining at times, so a change of scenery once in a while helps reset your mind & body talaga. Anywaaay, our options were Baguio, Vigan, Bataan, Laguna or Tagaytay, we picked the latter because it's the nearest. I also wanted to go back to Taal Heritage Town for a tour. Here are photos from our trip! All taken using Fujifilm's XM-1 camera. Yes, including the outfit shots.

 The Ramp dress, Casio watch, Slang Barcelona bag, Payless sneakers

It was raining and so gloomy last Sunday, so forgive my photos. I was also still familiarizing myself with the XM-1 camera, playing with the different settings. When I finally buy my own unit, I'd have enough to time to figure it out. I do like the photos I took though! It's easy to get amazing shots regardless of the lighting. 

Anyway, bought the dress the day before when I was searching for Ms. ZsaZsa's ASAP prod requirement. It was on sale at The Ramp and was the last piece! Meant to be. Hehe. Been buying simple, statement clothing pieces for months now. It has become an obsession. Lol. Thank you SLANG for my compact and super functional bag! It's super light and fits my essentials. Great for traveling. :)

 Here are photos from our trip!
my sick driver:(

 Left a little later than our targeted time kaya we ended up starving to death. Huhu.

 Had the car checked first... to be safe ;)

 Dropped by Nuvali to eat lunch

 Wanted to take a peek see but we were in a hurry so pass muna. Maybe next time!

 One of our favorite restos! Super affordable Filipino food

 After an hour of driving, hello Tagaytay!!!
 Booked a super discounted room at LEE Boutique Hotel via AGODA! As in 2am that same day. Quick and hassle free using the AGODA app on my phone!

 It's strategically located along Tagaytay-Calamba road. Just a few meters away from Starbucks, the huge one. It's pretty hard to miss. It's also near the rotonda.  

 Check-in was fast. I just gave them my name and Agoda confirmation number. Also paid P2,500 incidental deposit (which they also gave back upon check-out).

 Bathroom was small but clean. And there's a tub!!!

 also love the small balcony even if there's no view. hehe.

We were still full from our late lunch, so we decided to eat meryenda at Bag of Beans. It's one of my favorite places in Tagaytay. Would love to try out other coffee shops though! If you have suggestions, let me know. I heard Java Jazz is also nice. Trying that out next time!

 Date din minsan! Hehe. 

 Love their hot choco!!!

Left Bag of Beans to meet up with my sister and my bro-in-law (who were there to celebrate their 10th year anniversary) for dinner!
