Bag of Beans and its Charms

I’ve been too many times in Tagaytay but I never had the chance going to Bag of Beans. OK my fault! I know its one of the “must go to” in Tagaytay but I ignored the calling cause I thought its just one of those usual coffee shop. Besides I thought its just a small cafe since it looks small every time we passed by it along the highway. Little did I know how awesome it is inside!

Just last month, my friends stayed overnight at home and we all agreed to go to Tagaytay the following morning. And so thank God Bag of Beans is one of the lucky point of destination! Otherwise I will never discover its charms.

Since we had our lunch on other restaurant overlooking the Taal Lake, we just hangout at the Bag of Beans (Main) for coffee afterwards. I was surprised it has a wide parking lot at the back. And I was even more mesmerized upon entering inside. It’s as if I was taken into a mystical garden with rustic interior design. My eyes are really like “Woooowwwww! How on earth I chose not to come here before? Should have I known!”

Going back, without exaggeration, I was really amazed by the charms and beauty of the place. Waiting area pa lang panalo na! Just imagine having your cup of coffee/tea here with the cool breeze of Tagaytay…just magical! I really love the concept of every corner. I wish I can own the kind of restaurant or cafe like this someday!

So after we entertained by the staff and asked to stay in the waiting area, we grab the moment to take pictures and selfies.

My verdict?:

Place – ♥♥♥♥♥

Service – ♥♥♥♥ (the service is a little slow but maybe because of plenty customers…)

But still…Bag of Beans is really worth the come back!

Destination: Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban Quezon

Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church in Lucban Quezon is one of the popular pilgrimage destinations in the Philippines during Holy Week. It is a 5-hectare shrine constructed on February 2002 and located at Brgy. Tinamnan, Lucban, Quezon that includes Via Dolorosa Grotto, Healing Church, Noah’s Ark, Sea of Galilie, Holy Family Park, and the Pastoral Center founded by the Healing Priest, Fr. Joey Faller. But hey, you don’t have to wait for a Holy Week just to visit Kamay ni Hesus! Sometimes it’s even better to come in places like this during days when you know it’s not that over crowded. When you can really reflect and appreciate the real meaning of prayer in silence.

Sit Back and Relax: We’re in Lilom Resort and Gallery Café!

I was just reading the great reviews a month ago, and finally I have now my own share of experience of what it’s like to feel the peacefulness and wonders of nature around Lilom Resort. Yes, we booked a room too in Lilom just last weekend! What’s the reason? – Hmmm…just to escape the stressful city life (including work and most especially the nearly hopeless traffic in the metro) even just for a while. And well of course, to work for our long awaited baby project, in God’s willing. And what I can say of the place? It’s beyond great and wonderful! Whatever exact word it is…I don’t know!
