A comfortable two-and-a-half-hour drive south of Manila, Villa Escudero, a former sugarcane plantation, is toured aboard a rustic carabao-drawn carriage. The highlight of a tour is the visit to the museum where an eclectic collection of religious icons, rare coins, costumes, furniture and dioramas of Philippine wildlife can be viewed. The other unique feature is a native buffet lunch by a waterfall where you listen to the cascades and cool your feet in the running water while feasting on native delicacies.
I kept telling the sisters,"it's heaven's gift!" specially sister superior Sor Teresa, who invited me to go with them for an outing. A day is not enough to see the whole beauty of Villa Escudero. The employers/employees are friendly- able to talk to Mr. Blume (thanks for the plants for our chapel), Mr. Ernesto Cortez, some of the janitors and gardeners... The Museum- i could only say, "Wow! Marvelous!" It's very educational- the flora and the fauna, the artifacts, cascading water, the beauty of nature as a whole, not to forget the delicious foods. We should bring our students and loved ones here- it's worth seeing and remembering. Macarthur said: I shall return- and so do i. sr. maria rhodora cato, O.P.

it is so beautiful over there. u get to truly relax. the waterfall lunches are so amazing and scenic. i stayed in one of the little houses on the riverside. the house was so pretty and spacious. and like even though there is no a/c in the house and only electric fans, it is truly worth it, because you get to like experience being in a provincial setting and stuff.
