More re Filipina Writers Retreat

Hi, the four of us are still doing our writers' workshop here in Tagaytay.  We had the privilege of seeing Sonya Garcia, owner of Sonya's Garden, and Antonio Escalante, chef/owner of Antonio's Restaurant.  It rained for a short while but that only added to the wonderful cozy ambiance of Sonya's.

When I have more time, I'll write about this wonderful and most productive Writers Retreat, but in the meantime here are more pictures.

This was taken near our cottage, l-r: Melissa Ramos, Susan Evangelista, Nadine Sarreal, Cecilia Brainard
