Because of our weird schedules, family time has become even more sacred for us. Whenever we get a pocket of free time, we zoom straight to the South to hang out with my folks or we plan simple activities with my in laws. I consider myself very, very, very lucky to have two wonderful families—equally kengkoy, easy to please and down to earth 🙂
A few weekends ago, we were invited to CINTAI by CORITO’S GARDEN in Lipa Batangas. This Bali inspired retreat is perfect for families, couples, and barkadas looking for a quick getaway. It’s an easy 1 hour drive from Alabang which makes it totally doable even for those with busy work calendars. The Star Tollway makes it such a quick trip.
I will let the photos speak for themselves. They have beautifully manicured gardens, free roaming animals, good food, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, large swimming pools and a host of other amenities and services in between. It really is worth a visit! It is a secret gem which I hope you will discover too.
I would like to extend my deepest thanks to Patricia Palma Gil-Poniente and the rest of Corito’s Garden for hosting me and my family 🙂 For more info about this peaceful haven—visit their website here.
I really loved the food in Coritos Garden! And they all come in generous servings,
good enough for sharing. Be sure to try their Asian Roast Beef, their Special Spiced
Popcorn and Kimchi Quesadillas 🙂

Pool time!!! Thanks again to Havaianas for my gold flip flops which go perfectly well with
my gold malliot from Naked Sun Swimwear.
The kids had so much fun playing with the ponies, chickens, peacocks, and other friendly creatures roaming around the property!
