Of Taal Lake and thoughtful gifts
The view of Taal Lake was taken from Club Balai Isabel taken on January 05, 2013, Cham’s wedding day.
I attended Cham and Tons wedding with three other friends from college and contributed to a thoughtful group gift, a honeymoon basket. The basket which was really a box contained among others, a pair of wine glass, wine, popcorn, popcorn bowl, and movie dvds. Twas a mighty thoughtful and sweet idea.
Since it was just a day trip without much planning, my verbal invitation came a day before, I have every intention to be back in Batangas and explore Taal.
