This is Kenneth.
Today was the longest day ever, we woke up as early as 3:45am to prepare for our last day in Baguio City. People were saying that its really hard to take a shower in Baguio, but I really couldn’t last a single day without taking a bath so even though the others didn’t took a bath, I made a point to do so. The water actually felt nice tho, it wasn’t warm of course, it was really cold, but for me, it felt really nice when in dampened my skin. So yeah, we all got prepped and we’re ready for the day. We first went on to look for somewhere to have our breakfast, they had porridge in mind, so we looked for the nearest place where we can grab ‘lugaw’, and so we did saw one. Funny this is that, we all got excited upon seeing the sign of the place which says, ‘unli-lugaw’, excitedly, we immediately went inside, the place suddenly became crowded because of our presence, my aunts were anxiously choosing on the menu when the saleslady said that they only have eggs available, we were all like, “wtf? why are you even open then” lol. Anyway, our hungry tummies led us to a very familiar place, Jollibee. So we had breakfast at Jollibee instead, we were full of laughter while eating because of the military trainees passing by jogging, they all looked like running roll-on deodorants, but they’re really cute lol. After having breakfast and recharging, we went to continue our tour in the city of pines.
We first went to Mines View Park, the place was so nice, it was cold back there but I felt the warmth of the calming scenery the place had in stored for every tourist who comes and visit. I got to try ‘Strawberry taho’, well I hope locals wouldn’t hate on me if I say I didn’t like it, I’m not a fan of the original taho as well and I rarely drink one, the strawberry taho was a lil bit sour in my taste, and I don’t like sour stuffs so maybe that’s the reason why I didn’t liked it.
Then, we went to Wright Park to try horseback riding (I didn’t tried it tho lol) What I tried was to climb up the very high stairs back there, I actually thrown up when I reached the top, I even got a slight hit of asthma and found it hard to breathe for quite a few minutes so I rested for a while.
Then, we went back to Burnham Park. We tried the very popular boat ride, but apparently, we haven’t been gone on the water for like 10 minutes, me and my cousin Sarah wanted to get off the boat right away lol. I actually have fears of drowning because I almost got drowned once before, the water looks dirty as well, the boat was shaking a lot which made me scared of falling. We wandered around the place, walk, walk and more walking.
Then the next stop was a farm, it says there ‘BSU Farm’. There were so many beautiful things to look at, I’ve been always not a fan of strawberries but I have to say, the strawberry they had there was really good. They have a lot of souvenir stores in the farm as well so we went to buy stuffs there for us to take home and keep as memories. Then its lunch time, we went back to SM City Baguio to grab lunch at Greenwich.
Before heading back home to Pulilan, we visited ‘Our Lady of Manaoag Shrine’ in Pangasinan which was on the way home as well. We were all tired and we were just sleeping inside the van, we reached Pulilan like 7:00pm already though.
It was a very very memorable experience, if given the chance, I would love to visit the place again and hopefully not just for two days.
This has been Kenneth, see you!
