Baguio Day 1: On Early Call Time, Food Trips, and Sponge Cola Gig

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

I'm actually excited that it's another day to blog about ze Baguio experience with PLDT Wifi (I know, OA, hehe), I wanted to post everything na yesterday when I got home and woke up after a short siesta  (excited? lol), but I had to control myself in the fear of flooding your timeline, gushing over this awesomesauce vacation--which is a FIRST TRIP with my blogger sisters! Hindi pa nga kami nagssleep over kahit sa Manila, so imagine kung gaano ako ka excited for this!

Anyway, Baguio was also the perfect place for outfit shots! Alamnyoyan, hindi ako masyado maoutfit posts, but who can resist a few snaps kung ganito naman ang view? :D

Navy Blue Sweater with Floral Peter Pan Collar - Penshoppe
Red Shorts na nilamig ako - Landmark
Silver Flats - Katies -- foldable, great for pack-light trips!
Brown Sling Bag - Vintage
Men's Watch - Timex

I love this cutesy collar detail with my new Penshoppe top... Floral, very Panagbenga! Lol.

First day kwentos...

Since our call time in SM North Edsa's Mcdo ay napakaagang 4am, I decided to pack my bags earlier and sleptover at Pax's apartment in Cubao. 

I slept like a baby, while Pax still worked the whole night sa isa sa kaniyang one million online jobs (at nanuod pa daw siya ng PBB, hehe). Kaya plakda siya and si Mich on our early morning road trip to the City of Pines, hehe..


Yeheees sa pic ano! Ako na paparazzi! Hehe!

I woke up hours later, after hearing the people in front of us opening their windows and feeling the cold breeze indicating na wala na nga kami sa Manila!

Seeing families na naguunahan magpapicture sa rebulto made me miss trips like this with my Crazy Gonzales:

Baguio Angels Super Disco Club, yo! ;D

We decided to grab lunch first before heading to our hotel (alam na kung ano ang priority! hehe)

Fruit vendors in front of the famous Cafe by the Ruins!

Kagigising lang: Me, Aisa Ipac, Tracy Ayson, and Ava Te!

With our new friends! Blogger Calvin Lo and wife Tia, and Ms. Arianne and Ms. Odie:

What we had:
Panalo ang bread! I am not into breads, but ang sarap nitooo (must be the cheese!)

Of course, I had my caffeine intake:

Yummy vegetarian pasta:


Back in our van

Finally, our home for the weekend: Villa Edita!

Orientation first! :)

Learned more about PLDT Wifi Zone, so of course take advantage ako and uploaded several pictures through my Instagram even while I'm on the road! :) Ang dami lang comments ni Mom and ng mga kapatid ko, lol, but at least updated sila sa happenings ko! :)

...Then chill-mode for the rest of the day. :)

Santa? Chos.

Headed out for some Baguio strolling (no choice din at super traffic because of the festival! ;D)

Love this pic! The colorful bloggers in Baguio! ;) Feeling SATC, local version. Hehe:

Ok, hingal na si Carrie Bradshaw, lol:

Taho break! They have strawberry sauce for the taho! :D

Yummy hot taho! Lalo na ang lamig kasi!

Our first Baguio sunset :)

Hindi nagtatapos ang kainan sa taho! I had corn...

More street foodies!

Dinner in Zola, Session Road (yup, walang katapusan ang kainan dito! :))

The whole gang!

Then off to SM Baguio with the girls! Adventure nito, parang high school uli ako ang daming kalokohan! ;D

Starbucks break before heading to a Sponge Cola gig, which entailed a loooong walk!

Ended our first night in Baguio with Sponge Cola overload, ang saya ko! :)

Yael!!! <3 Super benta sa akin ang mga hirit, haha! And binati niya si Tracy from the stage! :D

They sang our all-time faves: Di Na Mababawi, Tuliro, Crazy for You (classic!), Bitiw, and of course, ang last song: JEEPNEY! Oh college memories! :)

Naalala ko ang mga gabi-hing! Nakahiga sa ilalim ng kalawakan!

With Sponge Cola's Gosh Dilay! He composed Tuliro and Di Na Mababawi, to name a few!

Fun night!!! Dahil maaga ang gising for the Panagbenga parade, we didn't drink kahit gapatak na alcohol! :D Sus! Kaya naman pala e! ;) Haha!

Thanks to Tracy, Ms. PR kid, we met the band!!!! AKKK!!!! Fan girl na kung fan girl, and wala nadin akong pake kahit epic fail tong pic nato (ako pa ang naputol, haha)!


I remembered during our long (and oa cold) walks, I told Pax na parang more than a day na tayo dito a! First day down, and this Baguio trip is already one for the books! I love the weather, I LOVE the food, I love the crazy antics I had in SM (secret na naming 4 yun! haha), and the fact that I don't feel oa in my outfit just because I'm with people who also don't care about stares, and would wear glittered pumps or heart-printed stockings while trekking Session Road. Just because. And idagdag pa, mameet mo ba naman ang Sponge Cola at makikanta ng Jeepney with them!!! Akkk!!! Other than that, I got to know more about Pax, Tracy and Ava during our heart-to-heart talks, and the fact that they're easy to be with and you don't have to put up an act when you're around them. Which is a cool thing and which is why I just love travelling with friends. <3


  1. aww touched ako dun sa "easy to be around them and not to have to put an act" feel na feel ko rin yun sainyo, beb!:)

  2. ...Okay. I cried while reading this... Lam mo ba, I lived in Baguio during most of my pregnancy. And those were some of the WORST days of my life. And grabe... Zola was my REFUGE. As in when I couldn't take it anymore at home, I went to Zola. Haaaaay. The memories. On a happier note, bagay na bagay sayo ang peter pan collar! LOVE IT!!!
