After the chaos of Cristna Villas resort last year, we wanted a place where we could truly relax and so I found some new places in Antipolo. My first choice was actually another place but it didn't really encourage bringing kids 10 years old and below. Good thing i found Modern Peak. I just contacted them and made a 50% deposit and we were all set.

We were supposed to celebrate Father's Day at Gerry's Grill but they were full so we were supposed to go to Makati but I said I was too hungry to travel so far and then wait for our orders to be cooked. Good thing we went to Sieg's
and the crispy pata (P480)
I must say the food and the price was terrific! The only dish that wasn't a hit with us was the sinigang. The miso and the sinigang was not something we were used to but we took a risk and it really wasn't bad.
They also gave my dad a free cap for Father's Day!
We went to Tagaytay early in morning to avoid the traffic. But since our rooms wouldn't be ready till noon, we spent the morning at the St. Scholastica's retreat house where my mom and sister knew the nuns.
Luckily, my sister knows the owner of D-Zone Backpackers' Inn. It's a few meters away from the center of Tagaytay but since we had a car, it was no problem. Parking might be a problem since it was a place for backpackers, they didn't really have a parking space except for the space in front of their building.
Also note that the 3 bathroom and toilets are shared. But since there were hardly any other guests, we had them all to ourselves.
The breakfast is rather small and coffee and hot water is not free so you might want to bring extra food and a coffee maker.
Of course, we also made some gaffes in our cheapskate ways. We tried to kill some time after merienda and before dinner by chilling out at Cliffhouse.
We didn't know that they charged a parking fee of P200 but it was consumable so we shared a couple of cups of coffee and explored Cafe Breton which had a nice little gallery upstairs.

Bless their hearts for staying open for hungry pilgrims on the road! :)
Ma ordered the clam chowder which was served quickly.
