Another Weekend in Batangas

For two straight weekend, I was in Batangas. Still partly deaf due to my colds and strain from my previous dive, I was not feeling well but my whole family was going to do some visits to my uncles and aunties. My brother wanted to do this since he is going back to Doha next week. So, I had no choice but to join them. Days like this don't happen everyday for a family who lives in different part of the world. I myself will be travelling away from home again soon.
It was a long journey for a weekend trip for us. From Pasig, we left home to go to the first pitstop (Imus, Cavite) to visit my dad's older brother. It took us about an hour to reach Imus, had lunch there, little chitchat, then we headed to our second destination - Mataas na Kahoy (a town originally part of Lipa City).
Despite of the aberations on our way to Lipa, I was still a fun filled weekend with my nieces, and a suprise that from my auntie's place, Mt Taal and its lake can be seen. On the far end of the lake, we can see lights from Tagaytay. It feels weird to see Mt Taal from the other side of the lake though. It looks different. My Tita (aunt) prepared a very tasty noodles, then we retired for a night.
We have a breakfast the following day, small talks again, then we headed back to Manila. But before going straight home, we passed by another Auntie's house in Parañaque.
It was a tiring weekend.
