On a Saturday morning, I was staring at my PC screen trying to get things done. You know stuff like trying to do task in advance so I have lots of time to chill at work, but I have a long queue of task and confuse on which one to do first.
Then suddenly you’ll be interrupted when a pop-up message appeared on your screen. It was Kate, she invited me to go with her to Sirao Flower Farm and Temple of Leah. Like a true good friend, I said YES!
We meet in JY Square after lunch and started our weekend project. To give you an idea about our weekend project, we tour our beloved city and check out interesting stuff that we can blog and brag in social media (just kidding) for less than P500 budget.
Personally, I would recommend this weekend project itinerary (though it’s not necessarily you should do this on the weekend) if you have free time in the city.
So here it is…
We hired a motorcycle also known to the locals as habal2x that would take us to Sirao Flower Farm. Fare is only P100 per person (one way). The drive is approximately 45 minutes from Lahug. We paid P30 entrance fee when we reached the farm and started the photo shoot.
Actually, she tag me along ‘coz she needs someone to follow her around and shoot her photos. (peace Kate! Hahahaha)
After more than an hour of trying to get the best shot, we decided to leave the farm and went to our next destination which was the Temple of Leah.
Since it was weekend, we weren’t was surprised by the amount of crowd. The last time I was there was during weekdays which there were less than 10 tourists.
So, we were kinda confused where we will begin because every corner was occupied by either group of friends, family, or love birds.
In situations like this, you have to be creative and alert. Creative in taking your picture regardless the crowd in the background and alert to spot the corner with less crowd.
And the weekend project won’t be complete without a food trip. Kate has been telling me about this food stall in Sugbu Mercado that serves delicious Pad Thai.
We had Thai and Italian foods for dinner that tour. capped off our city
How much this around the world tour cost us? Like I’ve said earlier, less than P500 ONLY!
