We started our journey at 6:30am, we thought we were already near the church but St Francis Xavier parish in Nasugbo Batangas is 42KM away from our starting point. We arrived at 7:30am and although the schedule of interview is at 8am, we were already 6th from the queue. Few minutes after, another couple arrived, and we were surprised to see an old friend from college Markus and his girlfriend Maureen also there to submit their requirements and have their canonical interview for their December 5 wedding in Caleruega. Afterwards, we both went to Caleruega to settle the payment for the church in full.
We bade goodbye to the other couple since they still want to explore Caleruega and my boyfie and I want to already submit our wedding banns to our respective churches, mine in Paco and boyfie in Antipolo. But before we went down from the highland, we grabbed our lunch in Rowena's Cafe.
We normally buy pasalubong from Rowena's but it was our first time to dine in their restaurant which is located behind their store. Surprisingly, the cafe has a very good ambiance. There's swimming pool and mini chapel at the back and the very elegant house of the owner is also beside the restaurant.
We chose to sit at the garden area and enjoyed the overlooking view. We chose beef steak tagalog, mixed vegetables, 2 garlic rice and ripe mango shake, all for P670 only.
We also bought some pasalubong for our families.
Finally, we were able to submit the marriage banns to our respective churches... It was mission accomplished!
