Place: Tanay, Rizal
Activity: Motorcycle Riding
I am actually scheduled to run in Verizon Fun Run for November 9 but this was cancelled due to Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally named as Yolanda).
Due to cancellation and since I considered this a free day for me, I opted to divert the plan and decided to go to nearby town, Tanay Rizal and visit some places where I haven't been yet.
Tanay Lighthouse or locally known as "Parola":
After some pictures at the lighthouse and break water area, dropped by at a "Lomihan" (filipino-chinese noodles) near the highway for my late lunch.
Then after lunch, next stop is:
Regina Rosarii located in Baraggay Sampaloc:
I took the chance to for some meditation and prayers. To thank him that Manila was spared from a huge calamity and at the same time asked for strength and hope for the people that was affected by the Super Typhoon.
After prayers, pictures and walking on a very huge sacred space, time to go back to Manila via the what they call "Marilaque" road.
Where to Stay:
On my way back, I spotted this hotel, the "Sampaloc Inn" which is approximately 2 kilometers far from Regina Rosarii. This can be a good place to stay when planning for overnight or more than a day stay in Tanay area.
Then have a coffee break along Marilaque road in "Frank's Bulaluhan" in front of Pranjetto Hills. Noticeable today that no single motorcycle rider was observed on this area, unlike during normal days which is packed with week-end motorcycle riders.
Took the Marilaque Highway down to C-5 until arrived home safe.
A very quick but a refreshing ride....
