DMAP board Tagaytay sojourn (Dec 28, 2006)

Last Dec 28, thursday, the directors of the Direct Marketing Association were invited by Prof Joe Miranda in his Tagaytay hideaway for lunch. We all met at Alabang Town Center to ride the Hi-Ace Van of Insular Life.

We arrived Tagaytay close to noon and tried finding Joe's place at Maharlika East. When we finally found the place, we all thought it was no wonder he usually needs to leave early for home. It was a work of Art!

From outside the gates, once coulkd see the overlying theme of his residence replete with precious antiques.

The house was named after his mother, Tinang.

Jun Hidalgo and Lirio Sandoval enjoy the the decors of the orange themed living room.

I particularly liked the stairs and the antique figures lined up. The house was actually featured twice at My Home magazine.

You can appreciate the home layout from these two photos taken from the second floor.

I insisted to have a photo with the house owner esp that he adorned his gate with my favorite angel figurines.

We later motored for our late lunch at the new Taaleno resto which gave a breathtaking view of the volcano lake.

After lunch, we went back to Joe's place where he distributed the special pies from Rowena's as Myrna gave each of us New Year black grapes.

We then had a final photo with everyone at Joe's foyer then motored back to manila after passing through some fruit stands and pasalubong stalls.
