For our 9th anniversary, Toto and I decided to skip the usual beach trips and go for a quick R&R for a change. We scoured the net for quaint lodgings a few hours away from Metro Manila and there were just too many options, really. From Casa San Pablo to Corito's Garden to The Inn at Cliffhouse Tagaytay. But most of them are in South Luzon, and we didn't want to commute along SLEX on a long weekend (Chinese New Year) so we thought of looking at the Central Luzon area. There are considerably fewer B&Bs here and so it was a bit more difficult to choose the one that suited all our needs. Needs talaga, lels. Abe's Farm seemed to tick off all the things on our list: good location (not too far away and accessible), good food (they're part of the LJC group), and massage services (they have a "spa village" according to their website).
