My office mate who invited me has a successful classmate in her college years who owns this house for rent. It is new, big, and clean.
We drank San Miguel Lights in can and had conversations till the sun rose.
Image your house with a view like this!
This video doesn't seem to show what I've seen during that day. The clouds were moving fast and not in a straight direction. I was amazed and took a video of it.
It's not beautiful but that's the sign of progress. Baguio is slowly getting bigger.
Off Duty, I wonder what her job is? Hehe.
Zoom-in and you'll see entrance fees as of 2011. :)
They also happen to have a nice coffee shop with various art paintings and things for sale. From there, we chanced upon a performance of a native dance of the Aeta people.
Aside from selling products, enterprising Baguio locals would have you pose for a picture with a dog, horse, or a Baguio elderly native for a small fee.
..eating! They look so enticing.
It rained for a while in Mine's View Park before we got to leave. Here's is the modern Baguio scene, slight heavy traffic.
We're back at the house and I'm content to what we've been able to do for the day. We're taking our rests before we go to the house owner's small coffee shop for a chat and dinner.
This is located outside of Baguio center.
There had been lots of drinking, chatting while we finish all these food.
My office mate and her college mates were having a good time reminiscing what they were in college. I didn't get to experience such since my college days seemed more like work, competing and challenging unlike them.
They all have children with their eldest going in high school.
Newer generations, mostly, are focused on their careers and success despite we often hear them being so liberated at a young age.
With the internet, consumerism, and slowly booming economy, I believe the youth of today are less to have a family at an early age.
We took a lot of pictures of ourselves and said our thanks to our very nice hosts before leaving.
That's all for our one day trip in Baguio. This is only a Saturday and we could have left Baguio the next day but our group seem to have a common priority for the family on a Sunday and to have a good rest for work on Monday. This picture is taken 11:21 PM while waiting for the scheduled trip at 1 AM.
I think we got to Makati at around 6:45 AM, outside the 5 hour travel time, as the bus had to drop passengers at the Cubao Victory Liner Terminal and throughout EDSA.
Three of us in the group stepped down from the bus in Makati as our homes are located in the south (Laguna and Las Pinas) and have to ride to different bus for it. The bus we got is both headed to Laguna and having a stop at Alabang. We're still together on the same bus. I remember having a stomach ache from Makati to our home. I'm silly to put up with all that pain so just I can unload at home and not somewhere else. I bid farewell to my friends at Alabang and thanked them for the experience. I got home at around 8 AM.
But.... my trip doesn't end there.
NEXT DAY >>>
