After graduation, he thought of investing for the betterment of the place and eventually developed it into a restaurant. He is also fond of organic farming, the herbs that they are using for their dishes are found within their backyard. As for the meat and seafood ingredients, they purposely restrict the number of inventory to guarantee the quality of every dish. Customers may call ahead of time to secure a specific meal.

Vilma’s Lechon is a family run business located in Brgy. Bolbok, Lipa City, with a branch in Darasa, Tanauan City, which provides crispy and delicious Lechong Baboy and Lechong Baka with their signature sauce.
Inspired by the legacy left by their parents, Vilma’s Lechon was conceptualized in the 1970s through the hard works of Mr. Felix Leynes and Mrs. Vilma Leynes. Before putting up the lechon business, Mr. Felix Leynes used to supply pigs to one of the most popular Lechon establishments in Manila where he learned the tricks of the trade, eventually put up his own.
In 1983, Vilma’s Lechon was formally opened to the public. Like any other startups, it was not a smooth sail at first. They had their fair share of non-paying customers and scammers. Nonetheless, through continuous innovations and catching of the trend and staying resilient, the establishment was able to overcome these setbacks.
The secret, as per Vilma’s Lechon, is in the pig and cow itself. Mr. Felix Leynes, up to this day, still personally does the trade and quality control of their primary ingredient.
Upon arrival from the city’s slaughterhouse, the carcass is first inspected and goes through secondary cleaning. Then, it is affixed on a steel pole and then stuffed with a mixture of herbs and spices. (They are also open to clients’ special requests in terms of flavorings and stuffing.) Once sewn up, the carcass is rubbed with a combination of milk and water which gives the lechon that enticing red color. The pig is roasted over charcoal fire for around two and a half hours – depending on size – while continuously lathered with oil.
As for the lechong baka, after being slaughtered, it is affixed on a specially produced steel pole. Unlike with Lechon Baboy, the taste of the Lechong Baka does not come from the stuffing but from a specially concocted marinate that has been with the family for years. It is then roasted over charcoal fire and checked from time to time.
Their famous sauce, on one hand, has gone through years of experimenting and perfecting to ensure that it would stand out among its competitors.
They are really friendly and accommodating. Since it is a family owned business and their home serve as the primary business center, the whole family has had a habit of personally catering to their clients’ needs, together with their equally accommodating staff. Despite unpleasant and sometimes depleting experiences with previous customers, they still strive to provide their customers with the best tasting lechon for their festivities and occasions.
Later on, Mrs. Vilma Leynes decided to open an eatery to go along their lechon business. They serve house specialties like lechon, lechong paksiw, and dinuguan.
Over the years, they were able to supply lechon to popular resorts, companies, and fiestas not just in the province of Batangas but also in Metro Manila and other neighboring provinces. They have also had clients who brought the product overseas.

The Casa Amara View
From the main highway, we turned left going to Brgy. Imelda. The access road is rough, but our companions who were in their subcompacts easily handled the terrain. A few meters from Casa Amara, an overlooking view of the sea will greet you and we immediately realized then that this will be a different San Juan experience. Casa Amara itself looks like a castle from afar, situated on top of a cliff, right beside the sea. We get mixed feelings of excitement, anticipation, and fear because of how high the house in relation to the sea below.

Batangas is well-known to be one of the favorite summer destinations here in the Philippines. Many tourists and locals plan to go to beaches and resorts here in Batangas. As years go by we tend to be choosy with our summer getaway place and ask ourselves questions like where can we plunge our stress away? Where can we find serenity while relaxing and indulging ourselves in nature? Or where can we find a place to chill or relax and have fun with the family? Luckily, we find all of these in a semi-private resort in Brgy Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas named Serenewoods Farm and Resort.
Only two hours away from the hustles and bustles of the country’s capital, a sliding roughed-wood gate at Brgy. Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas awaits us people whose minds are mostly drowned by the everyday toxicities of sky-high walls and impassable traffic congestions. Walking inside opens a sloped terrain of a budding paradise of fruit-bearing trees, flowers and gardens that hide a budding paradise of infinity pools and leisure activities for the weary. The place’s feels is amplified by greens and peace that it is named Serenewoods Farm and Resort.[gallery link="file" ids="50864,50860,50859,50865,50866,50867"]

About the Owner:
Serenewoods Farm and Resort is owned and managed by Mr. Lino Buenafe, a business-minded father of two who lives in Balete, Batangas City. Mr. Lino is a car enthusiast that’s why his first venture is a Car Accessory Business and through those businesses, he is able to provide the needs for his family and acquire a property in Brgy Bubuyan, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas.
He later decided to convert this property into a resort and a vacation place for his family use but later on, friends started asking if they can rent it to have their vacation or events held in the resort. Upon establishing the business, problems occur because it is inevitable, Mr. Lino has been stressed when it comes to the allocation of budget, to the development of the resort and its design, and he noted that it is way harder to develop a property on a slope land but he keeps on bringing bright ideas to maximize the slope area and added more features to the resorts. He realized that education and patience are what an individual needs to be successful in life.

Belle’s Place Restaurant – your Homey Family Restaurant in San Jose, Batangas
Perseverance and success in one’s business enable you to realize your childhood dreams. This is exactly what happened to the Virtucio Family, who with their flourishing poultry business was able to put up a Restaurant in tribute to their eldest sister Ate Belle.
The Restaurant, established in July 28, 2017, is owned by the Virtucio Family of Brgy. Bagong Pook, San Jose, and you will be able to see their family photos displayed inside the establishment. At first they wanted to put up a Lomi House beside their own Auto Shop (the auto shop is being constructed as we speak) but upon seeing the old home and how beautiful it is, they all decided to make it a full-fledged restaurant serving all the food that Filipinos love. You can see the touch of Ate Brenda in the VIP Rooms, and the masculine influence of their Kuyas in the huge tables and chairs in the restaurant.
Belle’s Place is mainly a Lunch and Dinner Restaurant with several VIP rooms with KTV for your family, barkada and workmates. To date they have served local bank and organizational group meetings, and they all enjoyed the good food and homey atmosphere.[gallery columns="2" link="file" ids="45396,45397,45398,45399"]
