City of Pines: Sightseeing + Sidetrips

Went to Baguio last weekend and here's what happened on Day 2. A lot of sightseeing and yes, more shopping. :P Narration through photos...

Our neighbor's chow chow. Sooo cute.

First stop: Philippine Military Academy

At the Museum.

Love their waiting lounge outside.

Entrance fee is just P10 each person.

First photo I find enchanting. :)

You're so tall ever mister! (in tagalog: laki mong damulag kuya!)

There's fashion in uniforms. Love the military jacket!!!

How the rooms of cadets look like.

Amazing diorama of Gregorio Del Pilar's bravery. Read his message above!
Does Filipinos still think like that? I wonder.

Another awesome photo. Just because the girls in the photo looks fab!:)

I love how this place reeks of beautiful pictorial spots. Lol.

Wearing: thrifted blazer, greenhills shirt, keds sneakers, F21 accessories

Overlooking mah men!

Busy texter in action.

Second Stop: FOREST HOUSE Bistro and Cafe

Yes, seriouuuus,

Waiting for our orders.

Checking my emails. Shalan.

Roti whatever--a favorite! Bread with curry dip.

Strawberry smoothie--yum.

Seafood Pesto

Mich's vegetarian lunch--baked cauliflower and potato

Loved the food and the ambiance!

Took some photos outside while waiting for a cab...


Disguise among all the yellows.

Mich was there to document all my sillyness...



...all out of excitement and curiosity.

Yeees. Baduy. :P

A mini mini bridge!

The whole place is beautiful.

They have this nice serene Japanese garden and a mini China filled with buddhas.
Me destroying the tranquililty of the place with my supermowdel pose! Haha.

And Mich too with her--umm, what's she trying to do? Side dive?

For P20 (rental of headlamp) you could go inside this tunnel where the Japanese hid during the war. It was damp and very very dark inside, so after 30 seconds of walking I bailed. Haha.

While walking we saw these 2 gentlemen standing over the wishing fountain. I was so tempted to poke their butts. Hihi.

...but of course I didn't. We still had this award winning photo to keep and laugh at though! Hahaha.

Love this walkway.

Fifth Stop: Cafe by the Ruins

By the ruin.

Mich trying to rain dance?! Yes, sometimes she's crazier than me.

Famous Ruins tea.

hot choco. yummy.

Lovin' the choco lava cake + hot tea.

Went to buy bus tickets afterward (better early than sorry) then headed to the market to do some last minute window shopping--with me ending up with 1 bag of goodies. Went home early to spend some time (bought pizza too for them) with my relatives. Oh, and I also want to share with you guys the life of our house party, my cousin's adorable dog--Zypher!!! Who just can't get enough of Mich...

...cutest ever. My aunt also gave me a lot vintage clothes!!! Can't wait to show them to you and will also sell some pieces on my online store--very soon! I also woke up to a lot of text messages (in facebook too!) all of birthday greetings. Thanks to those who remembered. I have super fabulous friends and family. That's what makes my life wonderful. I am truly blessed. :)
