Last Sunday, Dad, his group of friends from college called "the Chongs" & their respective families, decided to meet up around 9 in the morning to go on a road trip to Batangas City & probably Taal should the time might have permitted us. In Batangas City we were scheduled to go to the Acosta-Pastor Ancestral Home ( Circa 1883 ) for a tour of the home care of Ka Tonying Pastor, an 82 year old grandchild of the original owners. After the tour, we were to have lunch at A&M, a restaurant my Dad has been doing to ever since he was little, followed by a visit to Hotel Pontefino & Residences to check out what Dad has been up to.
Here's a sneak peak of the Pastor-Acosta Ancestral Home plus group pictures taken at a townhouse in Pontefino:
|A view of their gate from their ante sala leads to a plaza-like open area where countless vehicles may park...|
|A vehicle for each member of the Chongs were orderly parked in array parallel to the home: Dad's was up first followed by Tito Raymond's, Tito Toto's, Tito Richard's then Tito Andoy's|
|Here's my Dad, Tito Richard & Tito Raymond in the photo above, affront a view of the home.|
|Here's a group shot from when we dropped by Pontefino that afternoon!|

What a fun & educational day that was.......
Will post more about the Pastor-Acosta Ancestral Home in my succeeding post! :) Time to work now...
