Now the highlight of our whole Villa Escudero family get-away vacation – buffet dining at the man made waterfalls.
One can leave their shoes or slippers before they go down to the dining area. Water was flowing under the tables and bench while you were eating and going to the table and having a slippers might slip you out.
Sharing with you some food we feasted out. We started with veggie salad with peanut sauce on the side. This was what I enjoyed most! Rice was individually wrapped in banana leaves. In between we munched out from grilled pork and fish, with ginataang vegetables and kadereta at the side. For desserts, we ate banana cue desserts and tapioca balls. Whow, we just realized we missed this kind of food!
To really feel the Filipino style of eating, they use those coconut bowl for the soup and dessert. Even the whole table set-up was traditionally sooo Filipino. Over-all I love the taste of the food. Actually, I think we were the last family who leave the place not actually for the food but to enjoy the bakdraft of the waterfalls even it was man made.
Anyway, we got already our swimming attire as we will be playing around the waterfalls after we ate even we already enjoyed the cold water touching our feet while eating. Jam also got this glass with her to get fish around the water area. The water is really that clean where fish is just around.
The exciting part, our swimming with the waterfalls! We love the refreshing water even it was cold.
Overall, our family got a blast of Filipino culture offered by Villa Escudero. For one whole day, we experience the richness and authenticity of country life that leave a marked to our heart – from carabao rides, delectable cuisine, rafting, swimming and most especially friendly people around.
After I posted our pictures to Facebook, there were lot of inquiries from relatives/friends here and abroad. It is just ok. I am use with it when I started to do this blog, I become some sort of an agent already. If the only reason is for me to promote more our beautiful places especially here in the south, I am very, very willing to assist as long that I can be of help.
Anyway, that ends my three part series. More to come for 2012! Here are my list of links for this Villa Escudero posts:
