Weekend At Baguio City

Hey everyone! Happy 2017! Sadly, I wasn’t able to compose an entry about new year and such stuff because I was kind of  busy. And speaking of busy, I am not yet enrolled because I had to fix my grades and do my clearance and it’s not yet done. School’s about to start this Monday so it looks like I’ll be missing a lot.

Anywaaays, back to the topic. It was last week, Monday, January 2nd, 2017 when I got a call from ate Mayet—which is my Tita and ate Ember—my cousin telling me that they wanted to go to Baguio. Ate Ember is currently studying in SLU at Baguio which gave ate Mayet the idea of spending weekend there. It was very timely that ate Ember had to enroll for the second semester and we decided to join her when she goes up there again. I refused at first because I don’t have enough money or allowance to spend but Ate Mayet insisted on paying my bus fee—but only that, even so I considered it a go-go!

The original plan was to spend the weekend there with Ate Mayet, Ate Ember and Eren along with me. But it was January 3rd when we heard the news about Ate Mayet being sick.  She wasn’t feeling well and she was food poisoned so she had to go to the doctor and do a check-up. Unfortunately, her stomach ache lasted for about a week so she said she wouldn’t be able to come.

January 6, 2017—Saturday, 11:00pm. It was actually the day of going to Baguio. It was just the three of us who travelled—Ate Ember, Eren and me. It was quite a long ride, from home to Baguio, it will take you 8 hours or less going there. We’ve been receiving text messages from Ate Mayet like ‘I hate you people.’, ‘Pasalubong ko ah. Yung tshirt na may I LOVE BAGUIO’ and such stuffs. I felt bad because she paid my bus fee but she wasn’t able to come.

It was my 3rd time going to Baguio, 2nd time’s last year and I don’t even remember the first time I went there. Going back.. we arrived at 4 or 6(?) in the morning and the temperature’s too low for my hot body (charot). We stayed at Ate Ember’s dorm/apartment, I don’t know what it’s called. Fortunately, her dorm mates weren’t there because it’s still their semestral break so the house is ours for the weekend! We first took some rest  and decided to roam around in the afternoon.

We ate lunch first at Grumpy Joe and after that, we decided to go to the famous Camp John Hay! Lol I don’t even know if it’s famous. There were many people there so I am assuming it was. It’s just walk here and there, picture here and there and the rest is history. Speaking of photos.. we took many!

We were so exhausted after so we decided to go home ( I mean, go to ate Em’s dorm) and rest. We had some leftovers when we ate at Grumpy Joe so the leftovers became our dinner that day. And speaking of dinner, it was actually some kind of breakfast-dinner because we ate cereals and pizza, and baked ziti and bacon and cheese fries!! BUT NO FREAKING RICE THAT DAY, WAW, TALK ABOUT DIET HAHAHAHA. I didn’t actually sleep that day, namamahay pa siguro. I wasted my sleeping hours by scrolling through twitter and surfing the internet. LOL.

2nd Day! Last day in Baguio! No sleep. Hahahaha! It was Sunday which means, we have to go to church. So it was around quarter to nine when we left the dorm. After that, we bought lunch and got home by 11. Agendas on that day was Ben Cab, SM, Market and go home.

We hailed a cab and went to Ben Cab. It’s a museum which many people usually visit but it will take you 10 minutes or so (?)  to get there. The place is so instagram worthy, I swear in my life. So, you may already know why we went there. Hahahaha! Photos, photos ang photoooos!

 I have actually a hundred or so photos on my phone kaso for our eyes only na lang, char. Hahahaha! After Ben Cab, we went to SM Baguio to eat dinner. After eating dinner, we went to the market to buy pasalubongs! We stopped by to buy milk tea at I Heart something like that. That was actually the first time I tasted milk tea, I don’t drink one kasi because I hate the taste of teas, good thing nagustuhan ko yun, it was recommended by ate Em, sayang tho kasi walang ganon dito. Huhuhu.

I enjoyed the mini getaway with my cousins. I was kind of sad though because 2 days lang. But I am actually happy with everything. Those 2 days made me felt the feeling of being free. Free from everything—the stress, my boring life and such. For a moment or so, it was indeed one of the best days of my life. I don’t know if I am over reacting but I actually felt serenity and calmness, it’s as if I am not minding the things I have to do. But as they always say c’est la vie, all things must come to an end. I am still glad I had the chance to think and enjoy everything.

The highlight of that mini-adventure was the moment I get to spend some time with my cousins. Laugh all day, err day lang  when I’m with them. #Dugyutan2017 hahahaha! I am sure ate Em and Eren would laugh if they read this. Anyway, I wish ate Mayet was there with us though, it would be more fun!

I am happy.

Seventeenth!

Appreciation post to those who greeted me on my special day. I’ve been waiting for this day to come because I, myself believe that birthdays are the most exciting and fun part of your life. But seriously, maybe that’s just how life goes on with me. Anyways, I am officially  seventeen! Should I be happy about that or not? Lol, kidding!

Many people don’t want to spend their birthday because they don’t want their age to increase. Well for me, birthdays are for life! I mean, you can’t change the fact that you’ll grow up, right? So why not celebrate it instead of minding what your age is? I’m not being cocky or whatnot. Just bringing up my own opinion. No hate.

So here’s how it goes…

May 14, 2016, Me and one of my bestfriends (s/o to Nicole! Thanks for the ice cream cake. Lol) together with two of my cousins, Eren and Sydney, had a post birthday celebration for my birthday. Maybe, something like that. Hahahahaha! It was an unplanned girls out and it should be just me and Nicole, but for some reason, it’ll be lonesome if it’s just the two of us so we invited my cousins to join us. It was an epic and fun day! It was the first time I got to spend the day with Nicole. And, it was one of the most special days of my life. We went to Timezone and took many photos in the photo booth. Nicole bought me some ice cream cake as her birthday gift for me, hihi. It was an all day laughing session with the girls. Starting from the time we went to the mall, the time we panicked because we thought the ice cream cake would melt, the time we seated on the escalator, the time we walked and walked until we found a pedestrian lane just because we wanted to take pictures. Fun, fun day!

Love this girl so much. Hihi!

May 15, 2016, actual birthday. I was overwhelmed by the greetings of the people I love. Just the thought of many people singing happy birthday to you will make you feel  glad but I never thought that would happen to me. But, it was just this morning where half of the locale of San Agustin sang for me. I don’t know why I got emotional, maybe because that’s the first time that a large group of people sang for me on my special day. It meant a lot, to be honest.

 All in all, this is the best birthday so far. I wish this day wouldn’t end but oh well, things must come into their proper places. I was the happiest girl on earth! Lol. I thanked those people who became a part of my birthday and to those who greeted me via text message, chat and actual. Those long messages that you guys actually composed just to make me feel extra happy this day. I am so overwhelmed right now, like, seriously speaking.

And to those people whom I was waiting for to greet me, (but didn’t), all I can say is, thank you for making me realize how pathetic I am to wait for y’all for reminding me how unlucky you are that I was born in this world, I am not forcing you to greet me but just the actual fact that you forgot what the day is makes me feel “i don’t know” about you. God bless and I hope y’all are doing fine.

Anyways, I am now contented, I couldn’t ask for more. Positivity all the way!

Happy 17th, self!

Yesterday’s been one of the most happiest days of my life! Lol, too deep. But, oh well. We had our family or clan outing slash bonding. I had so much fun even tho we didn’t spent the night at the resort— DFarm Resort at Masinloc, Zambales. So, yesterday was great and turned out well. We rented a bus because our family’s too big, I mean many and although we’re not that quite complete, we still enjoyed the outing. And here are the photos that we took yesterday, or should we call this our pictorial? Lol. These photos are only me and my cousins and also my tita! Hihi.
