Thanks for the input, I thought there might be someone with local knowledge on the list!

Yes, so I'm coming from Makati, which would make the distances about equal. I gather the Northern route takes longer (smaller roads), but I was thinking it might be more predictable - a definite 3 hours rather than "somewhere between 2.5 hours and 4 hours" depending on traffic at Calamba, South Super Highway, etc. 

Or maybe there's a way around the traffic, using the magic of GPS?
