Weekend at the City of Pines (late post)

As a graduation treat for my sister and I (aside from our dine out after grad), our family plus Tito Yeng stayed at Baguio from May 11 - 13. :) We stayed at Teacher's Camp for the weekend. We got a huge room for six, with two big bedrooms and five "double" beds. And since Baguio's temperature during night was really cold, we didn't need aircon or fans. The breeze was enough to make us wear our jacket and cover ourselves with blanket.

We visited, in no particular order, Mines View Park, The Mansion, Botanical Garden, Wright Park, Philippine Military Academy, Lourdes Grotto, Strawberry Farm, Burnham Park, Camp John Hay, Pacdal Church and Baguio Cathedral. I'd really be glad if we'd stay there on December for Christmas. :D Though the Summer Capital of the Philippines isn't as cold as it used to be and since it's pretty much crowded now, it's still nicer to smell fresh air in the province - the pines, views and the "It's more fun in the Philippines" spirit! ;)

We also went to Manaoag Church before going home. :)

And you know what? Nothing's better than quality time with your beloved family! We celebrated Mother's Day there too. We gave Mom a simple gift and since what we gave her is not really something, I bought her a summer hat when I went to Lucban, Quezon during the Pahiyas Festival (see post).

By the way, here's my favorite shot when I was in my "aspiring photographer mode" at Baguio. This was taken at the Botanical Garden. :D

P.S. Sorry for the photo-dump-slash-lazy-post. And the unorganized order of the photos. Mehehe.
