My First Mother's Day at Escala Hotel Tagaytay

Thursday, July 05, 2018



I'm sure any mother would agree that giving birth is the most rewarding feeling ever (it is for me!) but let's be honest, it is also the most stressful job in the world! I didn't realize it until I became a mom myself. After giving birth I stayed in our house and in my parents' house for two months straight just taking care of Keia from day to night! And no matter how much I adore my little one, caring for your newborn can be so taxing, exhausting and yes, depressing. 

So as a first time mom, I told Mike I wanted to celebrate my first ever Mother's Day outside Manila (at least). I've been wanting to go out of my house for quite a while and because my pedia allowed me to bring Keia out (even via air because she's exclusively breastfed) we thought it would be a breather for me to go to Tagaytay.


Taal Lake
Escala Tagaytay was the preparation venue and Mike's and his families' accommodation during our wedding (Read: My Whimsical Travel Themed Garden Wedding) a year ago. Because I've been wanting to experience it myself, I asked Mike if we could spend 2 days here. Of course, wish granted! Thanks to Mommy Jackie for helping us in our reservation.

Mother's Day Surprise 
My husband has a knack in surprising me every special occasion and this day was extremely special for me as I celebrated my first ever Mother's Day. Seeing all my hardships and sacrifices in the past months, I guess he wanted me to feel loved and important. So he made arrangements with the hotel to give me something I'd be very happy (of course with an additional fee)

Balloons and rose petals all over the room <3
Even on our bed!
I love receiving flowers so this one was definitely an 'aaaw' moment for me
The main reason why I am celebrating this day is because of YOU!!!
Happy Mother's Day to me!
Thank you Babe, for doing this for me! I'm so touched!
Love the cake too! It was delish!
The next day, after I took a bath a big wrapped box surprised me! This gift was what I wanted last Christmas, a ring light so I will always look beautiful daw.

Wow! a gift!
Happy Mother's Day to the both us, Mama! And to all the Mothers in world!
Breakfast Buffet
Included in the fee is a breakfast buffet for two at the ground level. Because it was a holiday and a weekend, the area was packed. They have different choices of breakfast food but a bit untidy and unorganized but nonetheless I was satisfied with the spread.

Breakfast buffet
Filipino breakfast, salads, fruits, cereals and egg station

bread and pastries, waffle, pancake, French toast and crepe

Thank you, Daddy for doing this for Mommy!
Thanks, Mamu! I appreciate you taking care of me - Keia
Before, staycation for me meant staying in a hotel and using all of its facilities to maximize my stay. Now, it meant staying in our room, appreciating the view and sleeping in a comfy bed while I breastfeed my baby. Truly, motherhood changed me in more ways than one.
