It was a beautiful Maundy Thursday and we are set to visit Regina Rosarii in barangay Sampaloc in Tanay Rizal. We rolled thru Antipolo via Sumulong highway then made a shortcut going to Cogeo and the rest was a moment of fun and laughter on the road.

We scaled upwards to the mountains of Boso-Boso until we reached Cottage Gardens. It was a huge nature park and residential state but we only managed to take pictures by the road signage. There are only a handful of vehicles during that day. It was outnumbered by mountain bikes, racers, motorcycles and big motorbikes. The stretch of this highway is always a haven of bikers (of all types) as you always see designated stop points intended for this purpose.

A cool breeze under the heated sun, we are now on the highest point seeing Sierra Madre ranges. After 2 ½ hours of traversing from Antipolo to Tanay, we reached the home of the Dominican sisters just beside the private resort of ex-president Estrada and a few meters away from Camp Capinpin.

At the Regina Rosarii compound, we lighted a silent prayer while walking up to the hill. We also shared our blessings by donating one tree for the preservation of the compound. One note of guidance, when going to this place, please wear proper dress code, they do not allow sleeve-less shirts and wear shorts that will cover your knees.

We ate lunch at “Kainan Sa Tabing Lawa” near Lakeshore Drive in Tanay central town. Another day where fish is the main dish. The rest of the day was spent in Villa Lorenza for swimming and billiards.

Be with your loved ones in this week of bonding, prayer and rest. :-)
