Say Antipolo and Hinilugang Taktak, Antipolo Shrine and Alay Lakad will come to mind immediately. All these three are all related because they are the reason why Antipolo is one of the most popular destination near Metro Manila for Catholic devotees during Holy Week. Alay Lakad means pilgrimage where devotees walk from wherever they are in Metro Manila all the way to the Antipolo Shrine to pray, reflect and watch the Senakulo. After doing their religious duties, devotees then head to Hinulugang Taktak (a beautiful waterfall located at this province) on Easter Sunday to get blessed.
Little did I know, there are more beautiful places to discover in Antipolo City — that was where this last weekend destination took me. Thanks to Nuffnang Philippines, Nestle and Nescafe Ice Coffee.
When I got the invite, I absolutely didn’t know where we are going. But looking at the invite and the map attached to it, it looked like something I would enjoy – read: bold, smooth and sweet weekend adventure! Those who know me, I’m always up to discover something new!
There’s no denying, this place is a work of art! Everything is just picture perfect!
The next destination on the map was a surprise. They took us for pasalubong shopping. I bought some Antipolo famous suman and cashew nuts. This girl was very industrious, we did not need go down the coaster to buy from their stall! Suman is 3 bundle for Php100.00 with 7 pieces each bundle. While she gave Php50.00 discount for the original Php150.00 a glass of cashew nuts
