We were directed to this shop by the Tiaong Tourism Office. The "shop" turned out to be a 2-story residential house with a small area off the living room that serves as a showroom of their coconut-based products. Their product line includes vinegar, pickled papaya, jam, body lotion, scented oil, and lip balm, all made from coconut.
What to buy: The shop's specialty, coco vinegar with fresh chili, is what kept us dropping by the store whenever we are in the vicinity.
In our last trip, the owner gave me a lip balm as birthday present. It is yellowish in color which smells of and tastes like vanilla.
What to pay: Your money can go a long way here. One small bottle of vinegar costs only P25, while the bigger bottle costs P40.

Tikub Lake is one of the "secrets" of Tiaong. Not many people have heard of it judging from the responses we received when we were trying to find our way to the lake.
The lake, measuring 75m in diameter, sits on a crater of an extinct volcano. It is surrounded by lush vegetation although local fisher folks have put up fish pens within the lake.
From the national road, follow the sign towards Lipa City. Upon reaching Total Gas station to your left, turn right to the road across it. When you reach the steel bridge, slow down and turn right on the first small road, across the barangay hall. Drive straight on rough roads until you reach a clearing going uphill to your left. Walk uphill until you reach the lake.
