Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Boom-Tara-Tara-Woods!

Our company had a workshop in Tara Woods, Batangas. It’s a great venue for workshops, mini-conferences, or even day-away meetings and planning sessions. It’s a three-storey farmhouse that’s been converted to a bed-and-breakfast place. Just like in Sonya’s, one doesn’t need to bring towels and toiletries because they’re already provided. They don’t heavily advertise the place; they prefer to limit guests to those the owners personally know. Good thing our president is a good friend of the owners!

Anyway we stayed overnight at the place and I had fun shooting people with the lovely sunset as a backdrop.




As we were leaving Thursday afternoon we heard word that storm signal number 3 was raised in Batangas with the arrival of super typhoon Reming (international codename Durian—ambaho naman ng pangalan na napili!) in the country. I pray that Reming won’t do much damage to Tara Woods.

I remember when it was still called Tara Farm and the house was still just a small bungalow with screen windows :)

FENRIRTATTLER: Hey, I saw the old sign that said "Tara Farm" by the road. That farm has gone a long way--there's even a separate building that's like a big dorm house several meters from the main house. I'll post more pics of Tara Woods in the McMultiply site. :-)
