The stone steps going down our cottage. It looks quaint, don’t you think? But it’s the simplicity of the place that makes you fall in love with it.
These vines abound here. Bought a sapling during our trip in Tanay last December I can’t wait to see it bloom like these.
They call this area Tuktok, we stayed here just to read and relax and admire the view.
Euphorbias, to my eyes’ delight….
Located at the entrance of Tuktok, a cluster of eye-catching blue vines…..a feast for tired eyes.
The garden right infront of the Transfiguration Chapel
Bougainvillas run riot at the border near the chapel. This white one is simply arresting.
Our room – I love the quaint-looking lampshade and the wooden cabinet with slats.
The tiny kitchen at the cottage, I wish I could stay here longer ….
A four-sitter dining table compliments the tiny kitchen…
The word Pahingalayan as this cottage is called simply means a place where you can rest and make “pahinga”. Notice the old-fashioned glass door, it reflects the light and is simply beautiful.
It was a delight finding these red and green bromeliads infront of the cottage.
These white flower vines hang profusely all over the place. Seeing these make you feel inspired.
The concrete steps going up and down our temporary home. Even this has a charm all its own.
These cluster of plants give a rustic feel to the place. Still located infront of the cottage. One can dream, one can meditate, one can be at peace by just being here.
