Let me just join what seems to be a fairly large percentage of the world’s population and say Happy Valentines Day (!!!!) to y’all, whether you subscribe to that “tradition” or not. I’m afraid I can’t say the same for myself considering how, for the past several years, February 14 was also the deadline for our year-end reports. Somewhere along the way, this date became more synonymous to “deadline” than with anything to do with hearts and romance. Ah, the life of a bean counter.
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!
Before this visit to Guimaras, I didn’t realize that windmills could be so fascinating. You see, I’ve never seen them up close. It’s either only in pictures or from afar. The San Lorenzo Windmills of Guimaras was my first close encounter (literally) and it was surprising how I ended up being in awe of the structures.
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!
