Last time I was with them on a road trip, I ended up parking in Montalban, Rizal as part of a three-car convoy a few hours after class. This time, I was up for yet another drive but to somewhere closer (I think): Antipolo, Rizal.
No, we weren't there to visit the famous church frequented by pilgrim travelers nor the Hinulugang Taktak. We had lunch at a Padi's Point roadside restaurant. Ordinary enough, I thought, until I saw the view. Beyond the trees of the mountain we were on, I caught a glimpse of the waters of Laguna de Bay and the peak of Talim Island on the left, and the skyline of Metro Manila on the right. I should have brought my dSLR camera with me. But since I didn't, I settled for the iPad's camera app.
The place reminded me of the series of bulalo restaurants along the highway in Tagaytay where people can eat a meal while gazing upon the Taal Lake and the Taal Volcano.
Thank you Liza, Erwin, and Mike for that enjoyable trip to Antipolo. I'm looking forward to our next adventure!
