Baguio Day Trip

Following Hey Kessy' shop hours, Mondays and Tuesdays are now my weekends. Before, I'd still work on Mondays and Tuesdays because everyone else was moving, in a rush going to school or work, and I felt like I had to do the same thing. It was tiring! A 7-day work schedule isn't healthy mentally, emotionally, and physically so thank god I've been able to finally adjust. 

Paul and I decided to have a short trip to Baguio. We left Manila a little past 2 one Monday morning. I loved how we quietly enjoyed breakfast - hot chocolate, lemongrass tea, pizza, sausages, and bread - at a 24hr Italian restaurant along Session Road.

Since it was a Monday, almost all the galleries and museums were closed - no PNKY Cafe, Bencab Museum, nor Oh My Gulay. But we did discover new places to eat like the Ketchup Food Community, a compound of homegrown restaurants. It's inspiring how small food business are given this kind of opportunity to grow.

I convinced Paul to bring his sleeping bag so we can a picnic at Burnham Park and I can sleep there, too. Yup! I did enjoy my afternoon nap at a bench in the park. People thought I was homeless but who cares! :p

My new favorite pants from Tomato. They're so comfy - perfect for bus rides and out of town trips. I hand embroidered the pink heart using Monaco thread.

I made flower faces and painted a little. After two hours, we walked to Cafe by the Ruins, and had molo soup and deep fried pork. I wouldn't want to try those again. I did enjoy the ongoing art exhibit of water colored faces at the restaurant though.

After buying ube at the market, we went to the Hillside Station to have dinner at the restaurant. Their pasta bolognese was good. While waiting for our bus ride back home, we watched Guardians of the Galaxy for a second time - super love the movie! The bus reached Manila at around 4am. By 7am, I was already on the road again, this time, with my friend Tippy.
