Kina-career ko talaga itong Taal Vista Hotel posts! It's really only because we had a magical time really. Anyway, I promise that there's just this one post and then the next one will be the last one and that last one will be the contest. So, see, there's a reward in the end! For one person nga lang haha.
So! Where were we? Okay, so we went to Tagaytay one stormy week in June and we stayed at Taal Vista because it had the best view of the volcano and the lake. We also picked that place because it was right beside the new Sky Ranch but since it was raining, we didn't get to enjoy it (but we already did last March!). We did, however, get to enjoy the beautiful hotel, the exquisite service and the divine food. And for this instalment, I tell you about how I enjoyed the spa and a romantic dinner, too!
The scrub was okay—nothing different from the usual scrubs from other spas—but the warm oil massage was wonderful! It felt very sensual because a brush is used to apply the warm oil and the softness of the brush and the warmth of the oil against the skin is soothing. I loved it!
After my massage, I got really sleepy but we had to eat dinner. We got a special note to meet Celine and August at the fireplace. Ooh, we have a date! (Oh, to refresh your memory, Celine is the marketing communications manager and August is the executive assistant manager.) So Vince, the kids and I bundled up and looked for the fireplace.
And here we are! Our special romantic dinner by the fireplace! This is awesome. We were delighted. The photos don't do any justice to this special dinner. Thanks, Taal Vista!

|I'm still oily from my massage haha. I didn't even get to comb my hair and put on makeup and jewelry!|
Dessert was interesting. It's chesa cheesecake with guava gelato. I can't say I loved this because it was so very new to me. My palate wasn't used to it (it took me five years before I fell in love with sashimi, for example). I have never tasted chesa. It's a yellow-orange fruit that kinda looks like a mango and a papaya. I've never tasted it, like I said, but Wikipedia says the flesh is sweet with the texture of cooked egg yolk. It really did have that texture! The guava gelato also tasted exactly like guava but creamy and cold, of course. It was fascinating and fresh and quite good but also very new to me.
Mmm. Good food, good company, good conversation, good night. Happiness!
Okay, off to bed for me. I'm going to finish this Taal Vista adventure series and do a giveaway tomorrow so make sure you drop by again!
