Finally found time to sort pictures again. These were taken about a month ago so I’m feeling a bit lazy about writing this entry. But here goes:
My adviser had to go to UP Baguio to meet some people last month, so we headed up there after our Ilocos adventure. We arrived the night before his meeting. We stayed at this apartment owned by a my adviser’s colleague (I think).
The place had a kitchen so we cooked dinner instead of eating out. Beulah and I don’t know how to cook, so it was Amie who did most of the work. All I did was put the rice in the rice cooker XD
Getting ready for bed:
Amie and Beulah – all bundled up
Hiding under the covers. It was so cold!! It was around 9 degrees that night (according to the apartment’s caretaker).
The next day we went to UP Baguio for my adviser’s meeting. Amie, Beulah and I didn’t really have to come with him, but he let us tag along so we could go sight seeing. He was pretty busy that day so we decided to go off on our own and explore the place for ourselves.
With UPB’s Oblation statue (I don’t think we were allowed to go near it so we took pictures from afar.)
Beulah grabbing his butt cheeks
Amie and Beulah with a statue of someone we didn’t know XD
Amie and me with a huge bee
Taking a break from walking. I don’t know if it’s the cold air or the high altitude, but walking in Baguio seems more tiring compared to walking in Manila (or LB).
After taking a quick look around campus, we decided to head off to SM Baguio where we would be meeting Amie’s friend, Nathan, who agreed to show us around.
We passed by the beautiful garden on the way there
so many flowers!
Isn’t the place lovely?
We come in peace XD
Walking to SM Baguio. Beulah snapped this photo of Amie and me looking exhausted (yet still happy)
It was still pretty early and we still had an hour before we had to meet Nathan, so we took a look around the mall first.
Checking out the directory
View from the 3rd(?) floor balcony
We found this exhibit which featured some people and we decided to copy their poses
We found some ladies doing aerobics at the top floor:
I bet my mom would love to join something like this
Nathan arrived around 11 and showed us around Burnhamm Park.
Beulah, Amie and Nathan
Me with some pretty flowers! (I know the super high angle is so teenybopper, but I was trying to get the flowers in the shot.)
There are so many colorful flowers in Baguio~ I love them!
cute patio thing
Emo girl, LOL
Amie’s trying to break in
Beulah and her boyfriend, Mr. Scarecrow
After walking around the park, we decided to grab some lunch. Nathan took us to Jack’s where we all had the famous Jack’s rice. Rice, pork, chicken, veggies, egg and soup – all for P80! Super yummy and affordable!
Jack’s menu. They should open a branch in LB. The students would love it!
After lunch we took a cab up to Minesview Park, where we found this adorable St. Bernard. We got our picture taken with him for P50.
Isn’t he so cute?? The owner said he was just a few months old, still a puppy!
Pictures at the view deck:
We saw this white horse with a pink mane there, haha
Beulah rented some original igorot stuff for P10:
With the old igorot lady
After looking around at the shops there, we got on a jeep and headed to The Mansion (the president’s summer house).
Gates to The Mansion
With the sign next to the gate
We weren’t allowed to go to the actual house, so we just took shots in front of it:
Then we walked over to Wright Park to take more pictures
The horses were so cute, but they smelled terrible!
We grabbed another cab and went to Camp John Hay:
(I’m getting lazy so I’ll just post pictures and skip the captions)
Then we headed back down to go ukay shopping! Yaaaaaay~ I already posted an entry about that, so you can just view that HERE if you like 😀
We spent most of the afternoon going from shop to shop (which is way more fun than it sounds), then grabbed some dinner at this place which serves great sans rival (I forgot the name of the restaurant, sorry).
After dinner we went back to Burnhamm Park to go on a quick boat ride 😀
The boats were so cute!
Amie and Nathan took turns rowing the boat while Beulah and I relaxed at the back.
I took pictures of the pretty lights too:
(Blurry because the boat was moving)
After an hour we decided it was getting late and we should probably start heading back, especially since we were leaving Baguio at 4am the next morning.
Thanks Nathan for showing us around! We had fun 😀
