Last night, Stephen and I moved to my Uncle Ferdie's home for the next week. His home is just 15 minutes from my aunt's house in Ayala Alabang. This morning, Stephen and I woke up early to take our daily walk around his neighborhood.

After our morning breakfast made by their staff, my family and I headed to Batangas, a region of the Philippines where the world's smallest volcano resides. Taal volcano is a living "active" volcano that is located in the resort town of Tagaytay. We had lunch at Josephine's Restaurant and ate so much yummy authentic Filipino dishes.

After lunch, we drove to Monte Maria where Father Suraez is currently builing a shrine for Mother Mary. Fr. Suarez is a Filipino Catholic priest who has performed faith healing in the Philippines and all over the world.

When we arrived to my aunts, Stephen and I ordered a home pedicure and manicure. It was so relaxing! We were going to get massages too, but we needed to get packing for our trip to Boracay in the morning! Our flight leaves at 6 AM and we need to be at the airport by 4AM, so its lights out for now!!!

See you on Boracay Island!!!!

Nelson & Stephen
