MAMA'S KITCHEN: NO-BAKE DULCE DE LECHE BANANA CAKE


I was getting tired of the usual refrigerator cake, you know, our "ref cake" as Pinoys call it.  The layers of graham crackers with cream filling and canned fruit cocktail, so I went to Pinterest and looked for inspirations.  I came across the banoffee pie and decided to make my own version.  If you love bananas like me and my dear friend monkey, you are going to love this recipe.  It's very easy to make, just like your regular refrigerator cake, but this time with bananas.

PETTING ANIMALS AT ADVENTURE JUNGLE - PICNIC GROVE



For our last and final stop at Tagaytay, we went straight ahead to Picnic Grove, one of the most famous places to bring your family on weekends in Tagaytay.  Inside the Picnic Grove complex is a small petting zoo called Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle located at Barangay Sungay East-End, Tagaytay City.  In order for us to visit the zoo, we needed to pay separate entrance fees, one for Picnic Grove and the other one for the Adventure Jungle Zoo.  Entrance fee for Picnic Grove costs 50 pesos each.  Parking fee is 35 pesos for vans and cars, 100 pesos for buses, and 50 pesos for jeepneys which you can pay later at the cashier near the exit, while the Adventure Jungle tickets sells for 100 pesos each.

FUN AT SKY RANCH - TAGAYTAY


After Puzzle Mansion Museum, it was time for lunch.  We were hungry and our next destination was Sky Ranch, Tagaytay.  It was your usual theme park with rides and all, but the main attraction is the giant Ferris wheel a.k.a. the Sky Eye which is 200+ feet tall and has 32 air-conditioned gondolas.  It boasts a breathtaking view of Tagaytay and the magnificent Taal Lake.  We first had lunch at a fast food store inside Sky Ranch's premises then headed straight to the theme park.  The kids were obviously very, very excited.  My kid was even singing Blippi's song, "Theme Park."  It was play time for the kids!
