“Where to eat in Baguio?” is a question oft asked that, in hindsight, makes me want to scoff a bit. Several years ago that question would have made me pause and think hard for a while, because there aren’t too many options. At present, however, that question would still make me pause, but for an entirely different reason: it’s because there are simply too many options, you’d have to weigh them and choose a real good one. Funny, too, because at every turn, you’d find a place to eat.
Dining out was never really my thing, but I suppose being adventurous about food comes with age, at least in my case. And it helps that I am surrounded by people who are willing to try new things and new places. And it helps that there seems to be no shortage of places to eat in Baguio City and La Trinidad. So here are my May 2017 foodventures.
If I were to be serious about blogging about food, I’d definitely suck at it. I’m too un-picky about food, and am easily satisfied so being a food critique is out. Also, I’m not really the type to eat out often, or venture somewhere out of the way to check out a new place to eat, at least not on my own or purposefully so. Still, as I was going through image folders and cleaning up files I stumbled upon some photos that I thought I should add on my blog, you know, for future reference.
If there is one food or snack that is often readily associated with summer (and summer heat, to be more specific), it’s probably ice cream. But if you’re tired of the usual flavors and they all just seem, well, vanilla to you, then it’s time to look for something different. Something with a zing, perhaps? Something like the chill and spiciness of the Sili Ice Cream, right where its home is in Legazpi City, Albay.
Summer officially started in the Philippines just a couple of days ago. Or, at least, that’s what has been declared by the country’s weather bureau. But with how the climate and weather have been unpredictable lately (*insert Jaws theme here* climate change, anyone?) that pronouncement is irrelevant. See, when it gets real hot and warm, it’s summer. When it pours in the afternoon, the rainy days are here. But don’t let that burst your bubble. Continue to make fun plans. And go wild. Like how we did on this “time out of time” during our Davao visit not too long ago. Read more
It’s April, everyone! As much as I am willing to be fooled that the first quarter of 2017 has already come and gone, sadly, that “fooling day” has also… well, come and gone. So it’s time to face up to reality. Yes, it’s April. And yes, time flies so darn fast… but hey, that doesn’t mean we can’t fly with it~ But if, at the moment, you’re stuck at home, you can try recalling those past summers, and how you spent them. Like I’m going to do right now, remembering the first time I tried white water rafting. Read more
If I needed a more persuasive reminder that the world is one huuuuuuuuge place, it would be the realization that I still don’t know everything there is to know (and see) about the place I am currently living in or working at. There’s still a lot I haven’t seen or don’t know of La Trinidad and Baguio City, and that’s a crying shame. But, it’s those little discoveries – or rediscoveries – that spice things up a little.
