ASILO TAGAYTAY: Insider's Tips on Avida's First Residential Retreat

Avida-2.jpg

ASILO comes from the word Silong, which means to take shelter. It's a place where you can have a retreat and take shelter, away from the stormy, fast-paced life in Manila. Avida, the developer behind Asilo, is known for affordable housing and not compromising on what matters in life.

I like the name because it reminds me of a cute little town in the Veneto region in Italy called Asolo near Bassano. It's also located on a higher elevation around a hill, enjoys a colder climate and fresher air, and has a small gourmet community.

I like it because it is located on holy ground, beside the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Tagaytay.

It's in the early selling stages (35% sold), so you can still choose the units you prefer.

Here's an executive summary on everything you need to know about Asilo:

PUZZLE MANSION: Gina Lacuna's 1,028+ Puzzles and the Biggest Puzzle of All!

Puzzle Mansion-29.jpg

The PUZZLE MANSION is home to the museum where you can find the record-breaking puzzle collection of Gina Gil Lacuna. It is located in the Lacuna family's one hectare summer house in Tagaytay. She beat the reigning Brazilian Luiza Figueiredo in the Guinness World Records for having the Largest Collection of Jigsaw Puzzles in the World.

The best time to visit is when Gina herself is in the museum to personally give the tour. She loves having kids as her audience because she wants to inspire them to believe that more and more Filipinos can be Guinness World Record Holders.

TOOTSIE'S Tagaytay Revisited + A Taste of Chef Ed Quimson's Legacy

Tootsie's-9.jpg

We were able to finally revisit Tootsie's, a family-friendly restaurant along the ridge in Tagaytay. It is known for its yummy Filipino heirloom recipes and for the food created by master chefs like Chef Ed Quimson.

There are only a few chefs that we follow, and Chef Ed was one of them. I remember we would always hunt down where he was cooking next or the next restaurant he was consulting with, just to get a taste of his culinary genius.
