Now I’m back from my hiatus, how’s your long weekend? We had a blissful week, finally we we’re able to rest in my grandmother’s house, sort of staycation. Here’s the summary of my holy week.
We stayed in the house to finish our household duties before going to my grandmother’s house. We cleaned the house, finished the laundry and ironed all clothes. Quite tiring but we did not mind because we will be having our much awaited staycation.
As expected, we went to Caleruega, we left early to avoid the traffic. Surprisingly, there were more people who visited Caleruega this year compared to our previous trips. It is really hard to take pictures because you have to wait for your turn. =)
Then we went to Victoria, Laguna where my grandmother lives.
I’m enjoying my staycation when all of a sudden my husband wanted to go to nearby falls. This is really an unplanned trip because we don’t have any swimwear. We left the house after lunch without a map; we just ask questions along the way.
Our joy ride brought us here,
Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery
and finally Taytay Falls or Majayjay Falls
My grandmother was wondering why we have an extended stay because we used to “eat, sleep and run” the following day. Whenever we visit her, we will just eat merienda then dinner, sleep, eat breakfast and go home so this was the first time that we really stayed long.
But we really enjoyed our stay; it is our sweets escape away the hustle and bustle of the city. You can have a good sleep without aircon and we even turned off the electric fan. Of course, it’s not all year round, there are days that it is really hot but during our stay, we’re blessed with good weather.

My husband loves to stay here because he can have a good rest and there are times that he will suggest to visit my grandmother.
Hubby: hon, punta tayo sa lola mo.
Me: bakit? Ano gagawin natin dun?
Me: matutulog? Pupunta tayo dun para lang matulog?
Hubby: para maiba naman. =)
And of course he loves my grandmother’s dishes. We always look forward for ginataang fish and vegetables. To tell you the truth, we gained pounds again during our staycation.
As much as we want to extend our vacation we have to go home. We dropped by at Isdaan to check the place but we left immediately when we saw the crowd.
Day of Valor
Back to reality, household duties again and time to finish our errands.
