Quezon City: La Mesa EcoPark



What: A wedding
Where: La Mesa Ecopark- Narra Pavilion
When: April 29, 2011- 11:00 a.m.
Attire: Anything white or pink


Whew! Everytime I receive a wedding invitation I immediately look at the attire decorum and I was so relieved to see that it would be a garden wedding thus, it doesn't have to be a "formal thing". Although the thought of me wearing a pink dress was kinda alarming. haha.

At my age (which is 27 and I'm still not ashamed, still... haha), I have been into numerous weddings. From families, friends, co-workers and to weddings of people I'm not even acquainted with. Sorry but I really don't like weddings (I hate conformity and restrictions) but then, I love how two people commit themselves to each other for like, forever?




Ok, so a co-teacher invited me to her wedding, she was 24 by the way. It was a garden wedding at the La Mesa Ecopark (the couple only paid 5,000 pesos for 5-hour use of the pavilion). I have been there once and never thought that you could hold such gatherings there (check here for discounted tours, transportation and activities in Metro Manila)

It was a gloomy Friday, the wedding was set at 11:00 a.m. We (I'm with a friend who loves to crash weddings) were there at around 10:30 a.m. We were kinda early (and hungry), good thing we saw a fishball stand and ate some fish. haha


And so, the wedding...Not the royal wedding huh.

It was a nice wedding, although it drizzled a bit during the ceremony. We strolled around the park after the ceremonies. My friend was so amazed with the trees. haha. 




we weren't able to reach the top (for a good view of the dam) because it rained when we're halfway through it.
yes kuya, it is what you think it is
trees everywhere






So there. It rained and ruined our "trip" but we had fun. There's a fee for the park itself and separate fees for the activities inside. There's no parking fee. Check the rates below. 




By the way, if you happen to be around the area, try to check the amenities. There are different activities inside the park. There's biking, boating, fishing, swimming, zip line, gardening, wall climbing, rapelling, arts for the kids or just plain chilling at the park. You can bring your own picnic stuff and rent a cabana for the whole day. 


Pink na sa'kin 'to...
