My Holiday Vacation Part II

Day 2 (December 27)
It's my cousin James big day. I don't post photos of friends and family in my blog so I can only share a few photos of the wedding here. It's the best wedding ceremony I ever attended. I like the place, the fireworks, the reception, and the choir.

Day 3 (December 28)
The day after the wedding, we had our last breakfast in Villa Escudero (their hot chocolate is great) then we prepared to go to Tagaytay. We had a tour and spent another night in Tagaytay before went back to Bataan.

Found this loner in a small artifical pond of V.Escudero

My Holiday Vacation Part 1

Villa Escudero Day 1 (December 26)
It was the eve of my cousin's wedding in Villa Escudero. Villa Escudero is a working coconut plantation founded in 1872. In 1980 the Escudero family opened the plantation to the general public. Since then Villa Escudero has developed a worldwide reputation as a focal point to experience Philippine culture and history in a beautiful rural setting.
