Daughter @ Villa Escudero

I’m back to blogging. I’ve been idled for months but now I’m definitely back from the thing i used to do for 5 years already. Honestly, this laptop haven’t used for a long time also and just contented checking emails and other online stuff using cell phone. All my blogs were affected because of my laziness lately. Anyway, I was checking my photo files and saw photos of my daughter with her cousins last summer. The photos were taken last April when my daughter’s cousins visited us all the way from Canada. See, these photos were taken 4 months ago and today is the only chance to share. So please laziness stay away from me haha. I want to go back to my regular blogging routine.

Back to the photos, I got jealous with my daughter because she went to Villa Escudero already (just kidding). I’m happy with my daughter though I wasn’t with here, but still she enjoyed the place with my sister’s family. My daughter sometimes doesn’t want to go without me but this time she did it so I’m happy with my girl. And i can see her happiness in all the photos here.

According to their official site – Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort was founded in the 1880s by Don Placido Escudero and his wife Dona Claudia Marasigan. Originally planted to sugarcane, the crop was converted to coconut by their son Don Arsenio Escudero in the early 1900s. A pioneering agro-industrialist, he built the country’s first working hydroelectric plant to supply his desiccated coconut factory and Villa Escudero, where he and his wife Dona Rosario Adap built in 1929.

Their children opened the estate to the public in 1981. From its humble beginnings, the resort has become a prime tourist destination for locals, overseas Filipinos and a wide array of foreign visitors to the country. It has a worldwide reputation as a showcase for the Philippines’ rich cultural heritage, offering a beguiling glimpse of its history, cuisine, dress, customs and natural beauty a mere two hours away from Manila.

Here are some of my daughter and cousins photos.

Hot to Get Here – Take the South superhighway and exit at 50A (Lucena, Legaspi, Batangas exit). Turn left at the Sto. Tomas junction. Head straight down, by-passing the town of Alaminos and San Pablo City proper. Slow down upon seeing Quezon arch and turn left immediately after.

If given a chance to visit New York City …

Summer is here already in our part of the world. For sure many are already planning what to do or where to go. As for my family we don’t have definite place to visit but some members of the family suggested visiting the summer capital of our country. So, will see if this plan pushes through. If I will be asked I want to visit other nearby places because we went there many times. Well, I like the place because it’s beautiful and it’s chilly there but thinking how far the place about 6-8 hours drive makes me think twice. Still, I prefer to visit nearby places but still everyone in the family will enjoy.

Also, if given a chance, I will be willing to spend summer in other country. This is once in a lifetime opportunity so whether it’s near or far, for sure I will take it. There are many good places around the world to explore and enjoy; one of them in New York City. There are many good places and museums to enjoy in this city. Travelers in this place wouldn’t want to overlook Statue of Liberty, Empire of Liberty, Ellis Island Immigration Museum, American Museum of Natural History, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, Times Square and a lot more. Also, who wouldn’t want to enjoy their Broadway shows?
