八月十一日,我們為早餐吃了 cuchinta 和 puto,菲律賓美食。今天,我們要去塔爾跋涉。在這旅程,酈德瑞陪伴我們。到達大雅台市之前, 我們在大雅台著名的水果攤停車。我們買了一些水果︰菠蘿蜜,蘭撒果,紅毛丹和山竹在路上吃。我們從大雅台市下去到塔利賽,八打雁。那時已經下午 十二點鐘。在那裡,我們坐螃蟹船(bangka)到 Volcano Island。我們騎馬而沒有走路爬到火山口。

從塔爾跋涉回來之後,我們回到大雅台而在三點鐘下午到達 Tagaytay Highlands。我們已經餓了,所以我們在 Country Club 吃 merienda cena (午晚餐)。然後,我們去看 Puzzle Mansion(徵收了全世界最多的拼圖)。那時,該回家了。在路上,我們經過 Mushroom Burger (蘑菇漢堡店)。 我們停下來買一些當我們宵夜。

我們都決定離開菲律賓之前,我們三個外國朋友應該有嘗到菲律賓著名的食品:鴨仔蛋。快到達 Alabang Hills Village 時,我們為每個人買 了鴉仔蛋。回到家裡,我們一起吃了宵夜。我們的三個外國朋友很勇敢的吃了他們的鴨仔蛋!

VII. American Cemetery, Taal Trek, Goodbye

August 10, we had the whole morning to rest. In the afternoon we went to see the Manila American Cemetery, the biggest in the whole world outside of the U.S. Then we just went around Bonifacio Global City (BGC). Afterwards we went to Makati's connected malls: Landmark, Glorietta, SM Makati, Rustan and Greenbelt. We took supper in Greenbelt 3 at Banana Leaf.

August 11, we had cuchinta and puto, Philippine delicacies, for our breakfast. Today, We were to go for our Taal trek. David Lih was accompanying us for this trip. Just before reaching Tagaytay City, we stopped at Tagaytay famous fruit stands. We bought some fruits: jackfruit, lanzones, rambutan and mangosteen to eat along the way. We went down from Tagaytay City to Talisay, Batangas. It was already about 12:00 o'clock in the afternoon. There, we took a bangka (small boat) that brought us to Volcano Island. We took a horse ride instead of trekking up to the volcano crater.

After the trek, we went back to Tagaytay and reached Tagaytay Highlands at 3:00 o'clock in the afternoon. We were already hungry, so we took a merienda cena at the Country Club. Then we went to see the Puzzle Mansion (has the largest collection of jigsaw puzzles in the world). And it was time to go back home. Along the way, we passed by Mushroom Burger. We stopped to buy some for our evening snack.

We all decided that before leaving the Philippines, our 3 foreign guests should have a taste of a famous Philippine food: balut. Upon reaching the entrance to the Alabang Hills Village, we bought balut for all of us. When we reached home, we ate our evening snack and our 3 foreign guests bravely ate their balut!

August 12, we brought Takahiro Sato to the airport for his trip back to Japan. Goodbye Takahiro Sato. Hope to see you again in the near future.

August 13 and 14, I stayed home to rest. August 15, it was my turn to go, back to Taiwan.
