Lucy and Elsie Cuisine

I have been frequenting the southern towns of Laguna ever since I called this province home almost a decade ago.  I have went as far as Liliw and even dropped by at Majayjay. Nagcarlan, the neighboring town,also boasts of several tourist spots worth mentioning. However, I have discovered a nice dining place in the lesser known town of Rizal.

Wander Photo: Lighthouse

I love anything old, archaic, antique and every synonym in between.  So I fell in love with Guimaras more when I finally saw this rusting lighthouse in Guisi.

Overlooking Panay Gulf, I almost defied gravity when I stood on top of her, not minding the wary sign written though as an afterthought of a concerned tourist.

Coming Home at Tahanan ni Aling Meding

Tahanan ni Aling Meding at night

Coinciding with my visit to Liliw's Tsinelas Festival, I have decided to visit this grand home once more which is  right in front of Sampaloc Lake in San Pablo City, Laguna.  It is never boring to wake up here with a clear view of Mt. Cristobal.

I have been here several times already but I never find it tiring to come back here every chance my budget allows me.  Tahahan ni Aling Meding is actually a private mansion turned to hotel by the Borja family of San Pablo.  It is their tribute to their parents and where their family occasions are spent when relatives come in from the United States.
