Random Clicks: Estancia Resort Hotel, Tagaytay City

If you are tired of traffic, pollution of all sorts and you think you need to give yourself a break, you may want to consider spending two or three days in Estancia Resort Hotel in Tagaytay City. For an hour of travel from Manila, you will be greeted with a spectacular view of the Taal Volcano--which is not so bad at all. The resort hotel also has music and video lounge, billiard hall, restaurants, children's playground and sauna.

The restaurant overlooking the Taal Volcano. I like the lavender seats paired with white tables.

My serving of iced tea with lavender mums as centerpiece of each table.

The view outside the hotel.

The indoor pool with jacuzzi, perfect for those who don't want to be exposed under the sun. The stairs lead to hotel rooms.

The hotel rooms outside of the main building.

The hotel rooms up close. This room is good for 2 to 3 persons.

The souvenir shop just beside the pool.

Just one of the design treatment of Estancia reflecting a mix of Moroccan and Spanish styles.

The statue of a hunter guarding the pool. You may also call him  Machete.


If you want to be close to nature as possible, Estancia has several nipa huts where you can stay. You will be greeted with this view each time you look outside the window. 

There is Taal Volcano right there in the middle. A bit misty but nevertheless breathtaking.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

Calibuyo, Tanza, Cavite and I wouldn't miss the chance of having some clicks before we call it a day.
 This is the view from the 2nd floor of the newly built hotel facing Manila Bay and Bataan Province.

The Corregidor Island in Bataan is just an hour away from Villa Buenaflor.

The rows of acacia trees give shade to the spacious resort.
