Revisiting Baguio City
It was another long week-end, since November 30, Bonifacio Day was a Sunday. An invitation from my former lady boss to visit Baguio City made me hastily pack my bag for the mountain city. I've been to Baguio City a couple of times already (work-related and leisure trips) but this time I am quite excited because it is bonding time with a friend whom I have not been in touch with for a long time. She owns a cozy townhouse in Bakakeng area which served as our "sleeping area only". We spent most of the time going around like first time tourists.This weekend in Baguio City was well-spent, awesome and fun. Baguio 's unique charms provided me some sort of calming balm,some quiet relaxing moments It could be the chilly weather, the pine trees, the people, the laid back atmosphere or the combination of these that makes Baguio a favorite vacation spot.
My friend and I went street walking,people watching in Burnham Park,a little "ukay-ukay" shopping, dined out, tasting the mixture of local and international cuisine that cater to everyone. From street food to gourmet and exotic dishes, Baguio always has something fresh to offer . We also did a little shopping at SM Baguio but also explored the public market which is home to a wide variety of goods and services that you won't find in other markets. We did not forget to go to some nearby churches, the Our Lady of Atonement (a.k.a. Baguio Cathedral) and the popular Pink Sisters Convent where we heard the first Sunday of Advent mass.
Well, it was an awesome pleasure trip to the City of Pines !
