Sonya's Garden.

It was only when Ces texted me today about our Tagaytay photos that I remembered I haven't yet posted those photos here. Life has been fast and furious busy lately that I actually missed sharing a lot of photos and stories of my adventures.

Just some photos from Sonya's Garden.


It was lovely meeting Sonya. She was very gracious.
She gave me and Ces these seeds (the name escapes me now)
we had fun throwing because they swirled like helicopter blades.
She encouraged us to plant those seeds when we go back to Manila.
I brought my seeds to Cebu. Mom was very happy.


Ces bought Sonya's coffee table book.
Sonya signed it.


Gastronomic delight!


I am a food lover, so I have a lot of pictures of our food.


I told you. :D


That's salmon, I think, for the pasta.
It was sooo good!


Fresh!


Sonya was the nicest.
When she learned that I am a photographer,
she told me to leave some of my business cards
just in case they'd need a wedding photographer.


Did I leave my business cards?
I didn't. Wasn't able to. Didn't bring my business cards then.
I know. I know. I deserve some boinking on the head.


I would love to go back to Sonya's Garden.
Not only did I love the food, I loved the garden, too.
I would want to linger there and smell the flowers.


Sonya also encouraged us to explore areas only bed & breakfast residents
were allowed to enter.


Pathways were lighted with beautiful, colorful lamps like this.
What a delight!


I love that -- wild flowers and wild family grown here.

Ces and I had the most awesome time at Sonya's.
One day, I'm going to take my Mom there.


Pin It!

It is such a joy to see this place on your photos Ai. This reminds me of the Royal Flora in Chiang Mai(^_^)and my broken fuji slr.

You are lucky to see it when it was still a secret! It would be nice for us, Supergirls, to dine there. Can you imagine all the laughter and conversations and photoshooting we'll do? :D

Now I'm intrigued about that Royal Flora. :)
Gardens are always awesome. :)
