Wow. It’s been quite a while since my last post. November was pretty packed, you see. First, there was the Bontoc-Sagada trip, followed by an annual convention at PICC, with days of work in between. And, afterwards, “mouse finger” happened. Seriously, though, I’d pick sore muscles and even aching legs over the pain on my right index finger ANY DANG DAY. Still recovering today, actually. Acupressure ball’s been my best bud lately. But enough of that, and let’s talk food!
October has come and gone. Another month more and it’ll be time for feasting and binge-ing on all those Christmas treats. Part of me looks forward to how the spread would look like, although I dread potential difficulties in fitting into my work uniform, haha! But, let’s not worry about that yet, shall we? For the month of October, I’m bringing you to four places to eat in Baguio City and La Trinidad.
Whenever I do my daily commute to and from work, I am usually engrossed watching or reading something on my phone, I am barely aware of what’s happening. Well, except for lifting my head from time to time to check where I am, and making mental calculations how many more minutes I’d need to be on the road before I make it on time for work. So I was not aware at first about the existence of this restobar at Km. 5. It wasn’t until several months ago that I heard of it, and just a couple of months ago that I finally got to personally check it out. It’s called The LOFT Restobar.
It appears that new restaurants, coffee shops or food kiosks/stalls spring up around Baguio City, and the central business district (CBD) area is not an exception. Every time I find myself walking up or down Session Road, I only have to lift my gaze up and see a new sign advertising the fact. On one of those walks, I spotted a sign that said RECESS, and so I made it a point to check it out, by myself at first, then with company the next couple of times.
A quick update on a stormy Friday night. At least, on my corner of the world. Nothing more comforting when it’s cold and dreary (and pouring) than a cuppa joe and some cake, dontcha think? And if you’re anywhere near La Trinidad, there’s this place that you should check out for their selection of baked goodness and comforting drinks!
While I was going through my albums for this FoodVentures post, I realized one thing: I kinda ate out too much this last month of September. And went to a couple of places more than twice. Tee-hee. No regrets, though.
As I was going through my Camiguin blog series, a lot of thoughts were running through my head, and one of the most persistent was the idea of whether I could ever really come back. Because I know I (well, we) kinda resolved to climb Mt. Hibok-Hibok “next time”. But you know how Pinoys are (or humans, in general) when it comes to “next time”. Will I ever get to climb it, or will she be one of those “that got away”?
