My Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Experience

We stayed for two days at CCT Tagaytay for a couples retreat. We had a great time and I can say that the venue contributed a lot.

Our room was spacious, very neat and cozy.  It was good for 4 (2 single beds with pull-outs) that has a pretty big restroom that comes with free soap, hot and cold shower and tissue.  The bath towels come with a fee of 80 pesos.

The food that was served was yummy too.  Although there was nothing really different or special with the cuisines they served, I can say that it was not bad after all.  Just be extra patient with the cafe personnel because they get a little rattled when there are too many people to accommodate. Sometimes, the buffet table does not get refilled right away.  However, since you have (strictly) an hour (breakfast 7-8, lunch 12-1, dinner 6-7) to enjoy and finish your food, I am sure you will still have a great time.  Sorry that I don't have the actual pictures of the food I ate, however, let me share the menu we had.

Corn soup

Since we were here February, we experienced a Baguio weather.  There were no buildings nor any infrastructure around so the wind and fog just came around.  It was sooo cold that I had to wear three thin layers of clothes!  As we strolled I also realized that CCT is a kid-friendly place. They have playrooms, wide green space, playground, basketball courts and games that can be rented with a minimal fee (I heard over the counter that Ping-Pong only costs 40 pesos per hour).

CCT is approx 800 meters across Picnic Grove. If you want a quick get away for your family or your team, it is a good place to try.  Just one of the things I do not really like is when you have to leave your shoes on the ground floor of your building (there is a shoe cabinet provided) and use indoor slippers to go up.  However, aside from this, I think CCT is a good place to have retreats, conferences and team buildings.  If you are interested to check on the rates, just scroll down coz I also attached it for you!

Forever Yours, Forever His: My Reflections on Our Recent Retreat

The retreat we recently attended reminded me that I should value my relationship to God so my relationship with Bryan will grow all the more.  All this time, I thought marriage is all about Bryan, I have never realized that marriage is about God.  I was tasked by God to respect Bryan because this is how He wanted it to be from the very beginning. Disobeying and raising my issues to my husband in an unloving and disrespectful ways do not only displeases Bryan but more so the Lord

This was a timely reminder because I wake up every morning with the hopes of doing all I can for our little family.  Although this may be good, this is not enough because I have to please God first in every aspect of our relationship.  And when I do, that is when I can truly be the "best" wife to Bryan. Though psychology, society, and media may all have the suggestions and ways on how a marrriage can work, I realized that these institutions did not create marriage.  It was God who instituted marriage, therefore, He alone has the master blueprint on how marriages can be made beautiful.  Thank you Lord for this assurance!

Let me also include a few lines that pierced my heart during our stay in Tagaytay.  May this encourage you as well.
