Day Trip: Splendido Taal Golf and Country Club

Surrounding the Splendido Taal golf course is the 87-hectare fairway lots and residential enclaves of the Splendido Taal Residential Estates owned by JAKA Tagaytay Holdings Corporation.

The Splendido Taal Golf Clubhouse provides golf club members and guests with facilities such as centrally air-conditioned men's and ladies' locker rooms equipped with individual showers, jaccuzi, sauna and massage rooms. Splendido Taal also provides practice putting greens, tee houses on the fairways and a pro-shop owned and operated by the Club. The clubhouse boasts of two premiere culinary destinations in the Tagaytay Ridge area: the La Esquina Spanish Restaurant which sits in a scenic corner of the clubhouse; and the Ladera Golfers' Lounge that is located on top of a small rise that provides a majestic view of the Taal Volcano and Taal Lake on one side and the greens and fairways of the Splendido Taal Golf Course on the other. Both restaurants cater to golf tournaments, wedding receptions, birthday parties, conferences/meetings, seminars and other special functions.

Staycation - Potter's Ridge Hotel, Tagaytay

Taal Lake's foggy silhouette

I have been wanting to take a break from the summer heat and humid weather for a much needed cool breeze getaway and Tagaytay's high altitude offers that much needed time out. The planning part for the overnight stay was a quick 1 hour of web search from Agoda where I found a very good place to stay with a fellow friend and travel fan herself. These two Taurus will be spending some bonding time together spending their birthdays for an easy escape and slow down away from the city's crazy pressures.

Here are some more photos taken during an overnight stay in Potter's Ridge Hotel in Tagaytay.

My ZALORA Wishlist

In just a few days, I will be celebrating my birthday. But other than that, this particular month of May is a month that calls for multiple celebrations for our family, naming me and my brother's birthday, Mother's day, my parents anniversary and my OFW dad's return for a short vacation - that's 5 important occasions in one month. I never really got to celebrate my birthday throwing a lavish glittery party - I don't splurge for my birthday parties - nothing fancy and nothing pricey. An intimate dinner celebration with family and close friends is enough to make my day extra special.

I have a lot of birthday wishes of course, I'm a type of girl who dreams! So when I got an email that there's a chance for me to SHOP FOR FREE courtesy of Nuffnang and Zalora, I thought this could be a drop of blessing from heaven! And I always feel good when I get to share my blessings, especially with my family.

Now let me share with you "My ZALORA Wishlist" consisting of clothes and accessories for each deserving member of the family.

1. For Mom as a Mother's Day gift - Cowl neckline blouse with convertible collar from Missy

Mom is always the type who never splurge for herself. Like most mommies out there, she takes care of herself last. It's not easy to raise a child today, but mom stands out as she devotes her life and time to her 7 children. It's pretty impressive how mom worked hard raising the 7 of us, her calm disposition, soft spokenness, sweet smile, meekness, caring hands, thoughtfulness, listening heart, courage, strength and love. Yes we're a big family and I would like to honor mom by giving her this simple gesture of appreciation with a new blouse she can wear during special family occasions. In months time would be my younger brother's college graduation and I want her to feel good and appreciated by gifting her with this simple but stylish top from Missy. Mom is synonymous to simplicity and I know she'd be comfortable wearing this kind of blouse.
