13/365 – Keep on Dreaming | Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe, Tagaytay

There are so many beautiful discoveries the South can give you. I’m proud to declare that I am a South girl and even now that I am currently living in Makati, I am still and forever be declaring that I am a South girl by heart. One of the crystals of the South is Tagaytay City which boasts its breathtaking view of Taal Lake. Along it are numerous lutong-bahay restaurants and cafes.

Me and my best friends heard of Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe when we were still in College but because we’re still traversing from Easy-Go-Lucky Kolehiyalas to Sofistikadang Working Girls we just managed to visit the cafe this time.

It’ a small place when you look at it from the outside – you would probably miss it when you’re on your way going up People’s Park, Tagaytay. It may seem like it but once you reach their doorstep, it will give you doses of euphoria.

The design of the place will give you homey and dreamy feeling and you’d never want to leave the place anymore! You can’t really stop from taking selfies wherever you want to and it will all be IG-Worthy!

Dreamland is one of the unique cafes I’ve visited. For one, how the people behind it incredibly thought of its theme and how they’d design the place so original that it will give its patrons a whole different feeling. They have materials you can borrow to draw and paint while enjoying a cuppa tea or having a full healthy serving of their pasta

They offer a wide variety of Hot and Cold Drinks – Non-coffee or coffee based, pastas, pastries, salads, and full meals for a very affordable price. We ordered these yummy food  – Hot Green Tea (served in a teapot; serves 6 tea glasses) Php 100, Hot Chocolate Php 100, Hot Kalamansi Php 60, Meaty Spaghetti Php 170, S’mores (I can’t remember the price but it’s around Php 100-200 also). We thought it wouldn’t be enough for us but suprisingly we were all so full once we finished all of it. Yum!

Dreamland Cafe is a must-visit Cafe – coming from a girl from the South. I reside 30 minutes away from Tagaytay and my family and I always go up Tagaytay to eat out and there are restaurants I get bored to even visit again. Not this cafe. I would never get tired of visiting & dreaming inside this little nostalgic palace.

This is where my best friends and I renewed our vows after not seeing each other for quite a while. It will always be a memorable place for us.

6/365 – 10 MINUS 21 (THINGS I DID BEFORE I TURNED 21) : BE IN A RELATIONSHIP THAT WON’T WORK

LDR PROBS

Statistics says 70% of Long Distance Relationships don’t work. It requires triple the stuff you put in a normal relationship – triple the trust, triple the love, triple the patience, triple the efforts you give in. Only a few survives. It takes two strong and brave hearts to make it work.  It is the hardest relationship to handle but one of the most treasurable of all the relationships.

I don’t have a brave heart. I easily cripple when something hurtful is happening. I am not that strong. I easily cry on the silliest things which struck my heart. I am not a fighter. I know when I lost the game. I know when to give up because there’s no point to fight anymore. But I can love as if I am one. I can love more than someone can ever love me.

I risked it all. I risked all my self for a relationship I know won’t work. I knew it. I knew it from the very start. But I still fought for it as if it is a normal relationship after all. I fought as if I am receiving all the love I was pouring in the relationship. I embraced it as if it would bring me forever.

Well, you guessed it. It didn’t end well. But it has taught me beautiful lessons in life of which I will carry as I wait for my eternity.
