Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

A Trip to SUBIC

Explore MyPHILIPPINES! A Trip to SUBIC We decided to go to Subic to spend Christmas Day.  I started calling hotels in Subic on the 16th of December, unfortunately, all hotels are fully booked for the holiday season.  We went ahead with the trip anyway. Well, this is part of the fun for this road trip! We left our place in San Pedro, Laguna at around 6:00am.  Traffic in the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) was so light, that I reached Makati City in less than 30 minutes.  I stopped by the Caltex-Estrella station and filled-up, full-tank! We proceed with the trip and just drove along EDSA until we reached Balintawak. Turned right towards the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), then drove all the way until we reached the Dau Toll Exit. From this point, we drive towards the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). The SCTEX is a traffic discipline zone. You have to follow the rules, especially the maximum speed limit and to just use the innermost lane when overtaking. Other than that, please stay
