Continuation of our day 2 trip, as mentioned in my earlier posts, BF and I went to Halfway zoo and we rode a jeep going there, it’s a long the road so you won’t definitely miss it. I forgot how much the entrance fee costs, but it’s relatively cheap, but if you want to touch and have your photos taken with a tiger it’s a little bit pricey but worth it.
As soon as you enter the Zoo, you will be greeted with the new baby bengal tiger and Milky the white Lion who is so huge, gigantic enormous huge.
He “seems” friendly, but I’m pretty sure when I stick out my hand, he’d see it as food. Yes, these animals are cute, but when you think of it, you’d feel sorry for them. Cages are not their home but the wild life, then again, I hope they are all taken care of. I just hope those handlers weren’t so rough on these animals.
Here’s a video of Milky, rubbing himself on the cage.

And here’s a video of me having my picture taken with Julio (looking silly)
The rest are pictures of other animals in the zoo, enjoy.
There were actually a lot of Bengal tigers
There weren’t much animals to see, but BF and I definitely enjoyed, specially with the tigers and lion. Right after, we headed back to Picnic grove to ride a horse. Too bad, we didn’t bring our camera’s, we dropped by our hotel to drop our goodies and bags first.
I was actually scared for my life when I rode the horse, the last time I rode one was when I was a kid, so you could imagine how long it has been. At first, I thought I’d fall off, but that was because I was slouching, I tried a technique by sitting straight, and it was much more easier. My horse trudis ran for a bit, and it was fun, I felt like a cowgirl! No perverted comments or thoughts please, haha!
We arrived at our hotel just in time before it gets dark. We walked to a nearby 711 to buy some soda for midnight snacks, then had dinner at the hotel which I will posting today.
Both the zoo and riding horses was a lot of fun and the weather was just right. It was truly a pleasant and unforgettable experience. Commuting was a breeze too, except for one incident with the local who was too lazy too pass our 50 pesos to the driver and our money flew out the jeep. It was really stupid, the BF ran and thankfully found the money. That girl couldn’t even look at me at the eyes.
I’m sure some of you have cars to drive to places, but if you don’t you can ride a jeep and a bus going to Halfway zoo, just make sure you go down before you reach Alfonso.
What do you like most about Tagaytay? or your favorite places? I’d like to know them.
