Took a quick trip to Baguio with friends to start the year and I guess it’s the best idea ever. Didn’t regret it! Well except for the burned gas!!! The car’s not that efficient anymore. 😦 but anw…
I guess we could say that we actually waited for the New Year just so we could push through with this trip. It was planned a looooong time ago. Chazzz
Sometime in the middle of 2016, my friends and I were planning a trip to Baguio to look for leather jackets at thrift stores (Sounds sosyal, right? UKAY-UKAY! HAHAHAHAHA). It never happened because we all got busy and went back to our old boring lives to study back in Manila/Baguio.
Fast forward to new year’s eve, it was decided that we shall push through with the trip. And so we did!
We met up at around 12nn, had a quick lunch at Jam’s place and went straight ahead to Cordillera! It was fun and wasn’t that traffic since most people were already driving down to go back to their respective homes.
I actually wanted to go to Baguio sometime at the end of 2016 but I was too lazy to drive and people from Baguiowere already complaining because of the crowd and the traffic.
We made a quick stop at Camp John Hay and then went to Chocolatte de Batirol. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to try their drinks or dishes because it was packed. We were also running out of time because we still had to go to the Old Diplomat Hotel to have a “photoshoot”. Iba din!
So we left CJH, and thanks to waze, we were able to find the place without getting lost, and just in time for the “golden hour”. The lighting at the place was perfect! The temperature actually dropped a little bit lower when we got there. Iba yung lamig niya. I swear!
I was supposed to bring my camera, wait. I did! I just forgot to take the battery. Whoopsies! But anw, the iP7 saved the day!
We then had our dinner @ Rancho, Ketchup Food Community near Mines View Park. We were supposed to eat at Canto but the line was too long (palagi nalang. waiting nanaman).
In fairness naman sa food nila, mabilis! at masarap. Keri na din.
We had a little catching-up to do since we were all so busy with our lives. Cy with med school, Wi with work, Jam and I? whatever the hell we are doing! HAHAHA. After about an hour or so, we already headed out… to take more photos!!!
To end the amazing day perfectly, we went to Baguio Craft Brewery. It’s this legit chill (chill na chill and chill na malamig) hangout spot where you could purchase handcrafted beers with different flavors. (Walang apple and lemon dito. if you know what I mean.)
Here’s to a fresh start and more #dashadowlost. Cheers for 2017!
