If you would like to take a breather from the stress of work and even school, there’s a place in the city that can take you to a real life secret garden. Welcome to Batangas Country Club. Located at Santa Rita, Bolbok, Batangas City – 5 to 10 minutes away from Batangas City Grand Terminal.
Overlooking Mount Batulao and a short trip near Tagaytay, is a famous church for weddings called Caleruega. Pictures under the cut.
Hot and Cold located at Alangilan, Batangas City was our stop one afternoon. We were peckish, and we were all craving for some rice meals that will satisfy our hunger after spending an entire afternoon doing shoots in the hot blistering outdoors. Summer weather is normal here in Batangas. ^^
We randomly threw suggestions to each other battling it out which one to stop by for today’s pig out – Hot and Cold versus the ultimate Hungry Hippo (next time!)
Have you ever watched the 1993 fantasy-drama ‘The Secret Garden’? The movie centers on the lives of three children finding a hidden and magical garden full of amazing flora and fauna.
One fine day after our heavy pasta lunch, we craved for something sweet. Bo’s is our go-to place when we need our caffeine fix, the branch at the Poblacion area of Bauan, Batangas is our favorite. We got the best seats that day because we sat near the window area overlooking the green plant which made our stay very relaxing.
We were doing a bit of shooting that afternoon and we wanted to rest for a while so we decided to head out to Bo’s. Like most of their coffee houses, the Bo’s branch in Bauan has that local rustic vibe. The walls are painted with different locations in the Philippines and the interiors pretty much emanates the “chill” vibe where you can do some school work, paperwork and just plain hang out. Also, the smell of coffee is enough to lure you in for the long haul and wakes up the senses.
We were brainstorming for out next trip and projects, so stay tuned. =)
Before Pokemon Go existed, we always looked forward to sunny afternoons just to go on Photowalks where we capture random street art and images depicting daily life here in Batangas City. Even if we didn’t have anything to do, we just anticipated long walks hoping to see something interesting. We love to take pictures and watch people go through their daily routines.
Here is a compilation of some of the images taken a few weeks ago.
Who’s brother John? The place looks fancy from the streets of Lawas. Those lights lured us in and we thought, ooh another cafe! Lucky us, there’s no people around when we came in.
