Baguio Trip (part 2) with the Vinluan’s

Standard

November 1-4, 2012

Went to Baguio for the second time this year. This time, with my family.
Si daddy bigla lang nagyaya eh. Syempre sama naman kaming kids. Tutal long weekend at walang lakad.

We left Manila ng 11ish pm. Nag Victory Liner kame and syempre libre pamasahe.
terminalDumating kame ng Baguio around 6am. Ang lamig. Ang sarap. Breakfast kame agad sa Jollibee, libre pa rin 😉

After breakfast, pumunta na kame sa Green Valley. Kinda far ah. Ok naman yun place ni Atty. Inuturan, kumpleto gamit and so happy kase may fridge. Syempre nagbaon na rin ako ng water before kame sumakay ng cab. Buti na lang, kase malayo yun unit nya. Mali pa pinagbabaan ng cab samin, kaya ang layo rin ulet nilakad namin at paakyat pa. At may bitbit na gamit. Whew.

After namin mag-settle, nag-rest muna. Pumunta kame kila Tita Kareng nung lunch time to eat. And then nag spend na kame ng maghapon namin sa labas. Naglakad lakad kame sa Session Road, and naglibot sa SM. Pero si Derick, mabilis nagutom. Nag meryenda kame at David’s Tea House. I had Mami. Naglakad na naman kame sa Session.

Baby back ribs

Whole slab ribs P300. Can you believe this is a whole slab na? I thought half pa lang.

Mango Panacotta

Mango Pana Cotta P80. Sorry, pero my pana cotta is better than this.

Dad paid everything. Poor daddy. Sila Tita Kareng pa nag-aya at nagmayabang sa place. Kasama pa pati gf din ng anak nya. Pero ok lang, sanay na kame, every time we go there daddy ko gumagastos for everyone.

After dinner, nag ukay ukay kame. Masaya kame ni daddy sa comforters na nabili namin. Ang gaganda pa at ambabango. Na-miss ko mga pinapadala nila mommy dito. Umuwi na kame pagtapos mamili. Halos ayaw kame isakay ng cab kase ang layo namin. BTW, si daddy and madi nag-stay kila Tita Kareng. Kame lang nila Derick and Alei ang nasa Green Valley. Napapasubo kame sa taxi, mahal eh.

The next day, kumilos kame late na. We had lunch at Cafe by the Ruins na last August ko pa gusto i-try. Kinda pricey sila kaya kaskas card kame. Hahaha

I ordered Beef tenderloin Steaks and Fresh Mango Shake. Masarap yun Beef Tenderloin ah. Lambot nya and malasa. Lavet! Bro and SIL ordered Baguio Bagnet (P300) and Tita Susie’s Crispy Tapa (P280).

After eating, dumaan lang kame ulet saglit sa SM. Then nag Camp John Hay na kame. Nagtingin tingin sa outlet and I got myself a bag at UCB. Kakainis kase may nakita nako nung una na purple. Kaso hinanap ko pa brother ko para ipatingin kung ok lang. Kaso pagbalik namin, nakuha na nung isang girl. Good thing I love brown din, kaya kinuha ko na. Kaskas card again. Yari ako kay daddy.

Si Derick parang hindi nabubusog. Nakakita ng pizza parlor, ginutom ulet. So nag-pizza pa kame at Carlo’s Pizza. Ordered Pizza and soft taco (P 95) for me and Alei. Busog kame.

So, after ng meryenda, naglakad na kame sa Starbucks. Nagpapalibre kame kay Derick ng Toffee Nut eh. Pero di ko rin tinuloy, I paid for my frap. Hayaan ko na si SIL na ilibre, mag asawa naman sila. Hehehe

Had my first Toffee Nut for the year. At ang dami tao sa Starbucks Camp John Hay. Liit pa man din ng place. We didnt stay long. Bumalik din kame sa Session kase magpapa-massage kame. Di ko na-enjoy massage ko this time, unlike nung last time kame ni Sally. But its ok, libre ulet ni Daddy eh. Kaso aawa na ako kay daddy, saket pa rin ng leeg nya. Di nawala sa massage.

After ng massage namin, went back to tita Kareng’s place para mag-dinner. Bumili lang sila ng inihaw na bangus sa may Session. Tapos may konting handa kase birthday pala ni Inday. Pagkatapos namin kumain, nagpahinga lang kame saglit at bumalik na ng Green Valley. Pagdating, nag-ayos na lang ng things and nanood pa ako ng series.

On Sunday, our last day woke up late (actually yun dalawa lang). Nag-prepare na kame and went back kila tita Kareng, ate lunch at lumabas ulet kamd nila Derick. Namili pasalubong and nag-coffee again. Yey! Tsaka ang inet eh. So lakad kame hanggang Starbucks in Session Road. Saglit lang kame. Bumalik din kame agad sa bahay tapos umambon pa. Di na kame nagtagal pa din kase 6pm naman byahe namin pabalik ng Manila.

A magastos and puro kainang trip to Baguio with the Family to. Magastos kase bawat labas namin, sagot namin. Hahaha buti nakalibre kame sa tutuluyan and fare. Sana si daddy na-relax. Kaso I doubt dahil sa nakaka inis na madrasta ko.

Baguio Trip with the Najera’s

Standard

August 19-21, 2012

Been wanting to go to Baguio, mga 2 years ago na. Eto, natuloy na!!!! Kasama ang buong Najera family!

Sal and I left Manila ng 4am, dumating kame in Baguio 10ish. Ang daming tao. Ang lamig. It was raining whole day sunday, di kame makalabas. Nag-SM na lang kame nung gabi. Tapos we had dinner at Sizzling Plate sa may Session.

Australian T-Bone

I saw Kerwin pero di ako sure. Hahaha sayang kung nakuha ko sana agad number nya kay tita olive. Nasabihan ko sana sya maaga na gusto namin magpa-massage. Saw my ex din si Abet. Di lang ako sure na sya yon. Last saw him was 2004 pa.

Sun came out the next day. Kaya we went to Camp John Hay. Di ko naman alam may trekking pala magaganap, I wore my winter boots pa. Hahahaha langya ka Glen! hahaha but I enjoyed that trek ah. Kahit naka boots ako, buti malamig and di ako nauhaw.

After ng aming trekking, diretso kame sa Technohub, bago ata yon. Di pala don yun Starbucks na gusto ko mapuntahan. Tapos funny, while Sally and I are waiting for our orders, sabi ni Sally mali na-order nyang coffee. Sabi ko sana sinabi nya saken, tapos nung tinanong nya ano order ko, nasa isip ko java chip, pagbigay oh coffee jelly. Pano nangyari yon? Never naman ako nag-order non. Hmpf

And since sila Mader ay sa kabila napunta, sumunod na lang kame don. Napabili pa tuloy ako sa Mango ng Skirt. Baket kase may Outlet? Hahaha ang mura lang, baket naman hindi. Nag-Starbucks ulet kame, this time yun gusto ko na mapuntahang Starbucks, and this time tama na ang order kong coffee. Stayed here for at least 2 hours.

Tapos balik Session. Mag-UK sana eh, kaso ang mahal naman. Kaya nag-pa-massage na lang kame ni Sally sa spa (Dab-n-Rub) nila Kerwin. And the rest, umuwi muna. Enjoy naman our 1-1/2hours whole body massage.

We had dinner at 50’s Diner. Eto rin tagal ko na gusto makainan. Thanks Sally talaga pinagbigyan mo ako sa mga gusto ko puntahan/kainan. Naisip ko na naman si Christian Grey, 50’s eh, Fifty’s, my Fifty!!! I ordered Chop and Chop, tignan mo naman.

Chop and Chop

Chocolate Shake

For P130, 2 chops, fries and veggies na yan. Busog kame ni Sal, ang saya! Ang cheap pa ah. Di lang ganon kainit yun food when they served it and yun chocolate shake tastes like Magnolia Chocolait lang but it doesnt matter. Ang lambot nung meat and makapal sya. So I loved it! And servers are nice! 🙂

We went don sa Night Market for UK after dinner. Meet namin sila Glen and ate Sharon. Nakabili ako ng isang jacket for 300bucks, I’m so happy. Its purple and cheap! Keber na yon. Saya pala mag-ukay. Hahahaha umuwi kaming masaya.

Tuesday, maaraw pa rin pag-gising namin. Kaso pauwi na kame. But nakalabas pa rin kame ni Sal, we’ll eat breakfast sana at Cafe by the Ruins, pero closed under renovation sya. Lungkot much! Good thing, mabaet si manong Taxi driver, nag-suggest pa sya puntahan at hinatid kame sa Cafe Will. Kinda pricey ah, but delicious naman. Kaya ok lang!! Big serving also.

Creamy mushroom soup

Grille Black Jack Ribs

That, for 400bucks. We didnt know na may kasama nang soup, but its creamy and delicious. Di ko naubos ang food ko, like nung dinner lang. Sa laki naman, di mo talaga mauubos. No service charge, vat included. Hehehe and one sad thing though, they dont serve breakfast.

Left Baguio around 1pm.

I had a great long weekend Sally and family! Nakakatuwa si fader!! I love the hirits. And ang bebe boy, Gab… si Lets go! hahahaha arte lang! 😀 thanks for the weekend! Tile next time! 🙂
