So every February, me and my friends agree to go to some random place together, either just here or out of the country. Haven’t joined them since forever but was fortunate enough to tag along this year.
This year they decided on Baguio.
Took the last flight out to Manila.
Took the 3AM bus to Baguio.
We made it to Baguio in less than 6 hours.
Caught up on some zzzs and had lunch at Cafe by the Ruins. They serve organic food and beverages. No junk here.
We then went to see the Philippine Military Academy. Just so we get to see it I guess especially for the first timers (haha).
Flowers were just sprouting all over. Lots of pretty.
We had hot chocolate in the afternoon at Choco-Late de Batirol at Camp John Hay. Temperature went as low as 17C. Must try the traditional blend Chocolate de batirol, bibingka and turon de langka.
Dinner at the Forest House. Loved their chicken skin!
Good morning! It’s Valentine’s day! ❤️
Started the day lining up at Good Shepherd. Must try their ube jam, strawberry jelly and chocolate crinkles.
Had our lunch at Pizza Volante and went to the market after to buy pashmina shawls and blankets.
We also went strolling at Burnham park and munched on a lot of street food. It’s Panagbenga festival the whole month of February so the park was full of floral displays.
We also had our picture taken with Doglas, the largest St. Bernard in Baguio (so they claim).
Went to the spa and had our Valentine’s dinner after at Mario’s. Food is really good. Going to the spa was interesting too (haha).
They also had this treat for the ladies.
And to sum it all up, s’mores by the fireplace.
Pack up to go back to Manila.
Strawberries sell at Php150.00 per box!
Time to get lucky!
Went shopping and had dinner with my loves at Clawdaddy before flying home to Bacolod the next day.
I may not be lucky in the romance department but I am very much fortunate with family and friends. I did not receive flowers or chocolates or whatever on Valentine’s day and it’s okay. This is enough, they are enough.
Until the next February adventure!
Additional bonus: Talked with my kids (via Viber) and they showed me their grades. I was one happy Momma. This has been the best Valentine’s treat I’ve had in years. Thank you God!
