Instead of having a Christmas party, my barkada (group of friends) and I decided to visit Sampalok Lake in San Pablo City, Laguna. Known as the City of Seven Lakes, San Pablo City is an hour's drive from Pila.
Sampalok lake is just 10 minutes walk from the main avenue.
The majestic Mt. Banahaw can be seen from the lake.
Don't leave San Pablo without trying the famous Mami ng San Pablo.
Julie's Bakeshop makes these lechon shape bread. A cheaper substitute for the real one.
Don't like lechon? Try this giant shrimp bread instead.
