It's two days till I turn 17 so Ji and I decided to celebrate my birthday today. We went to Tagaytay and had lunch in Sonya's Garden. We got there at around 2pm so we had to wait for a table. While waiting, we decided to look around and take pictures.
Once we were lead to our table, we started with the course. It was a sit-down eat all you can. We were served with basic food except there were a variety of topings you can add on them. We didnt go for second servings though cause we were so full! Food was delicious though! Really worth it!
Afterwards we went around the garden more. It's so beautiful especially the sunflower garden! I love it there!
The ambiance of the place was really romantic. In fact, around three couples were having their wedding receptions when we were there.
Anyway, by the time we were done with lunch, it was already around 3pm. I wanted to go and look for thrift shops and so we went to the Tagaytay circle. We then spent the rest of our time in the thrift shops but I only bought one thing. It was so EXPENSIVE!! The dresses I usually buy in the thrift shop I frequent in Manila are only 50 pesos ($1) but I bought one today for 130 pesos (around $3). The rest were just really expensive so I didnt wanna buy anything else.
I had to be home by 7 so we left the thrift shops at 5. We were supposed to go around Tagaytay more but figured we'd be home late if we did. Today was really an enjoyable day though despite the time constraint! It was a great way to celebrate my birthday & I am more than happy that we had this =)
