The Ruins of People's Palace



Last Saturday, I took my faithful, loving secretary to Tagaytay. Not knowing what else to do aside from eating, I decided to re-visit the People's Palace in the Sky. We happened to be with 200 noisy kids on a field trip. Sigh. The entire thing seems ready to collapse. Totally in ruins. A few stores selling souvenir items at thrice the price. I visited this place in 1990 and can compare the decay! the positive note: it was totally cloudy and cold that morning (after the rain). There was fog all over! Para kang nasa alapaap! That was really something. Downside: fog covered the view. But my secretary and driver enjoyed it! If I were DOT, i'd let it rot and ruin. then it becomes something like Macchu Picchu! ASA PA.... :-)

I was there a years ago. It was very disappointing. I wish they had kept up the place and turned it into a museum or something. It's just another waste of money.
