Okay, here we go again with my late posts. I’m really, sincerely, immensely, totally, certainly, exceedingly, absolutely, completely sorry. As some of you may know that I’m currently in the process of transitioning from being a student for so many years into being soon to be yuppie. Time flies so fast, eh?
Anyway, let’s proceed with our day 3 in Benguet, Baguio City which I insanely want so bad for someone to take me back there – NOW! The weather here in the PH is driving me nuts. It’s like the moment you step out of the house, sweat will start to say hello right away.
Waking up at 4am in the morning, we skipped breakfast (Uh, not really!) and went straight to the renowned and overhyped Sitio La Presa as seen on ABS CBN’s Forevermore, which is originally Mount Cabuyao and since we know for a fact that it’s much colder there than the rest of Baguio, we came to a decision to wear winter-like clothes. As we are on our way there, before the insanely breezy cold feels shed light on us, our eyes witnessed these sights.
As we get near La Presa, it’s getting colder and we forgot to bring scarf and gloves to lessen the chills we’re getting. For we honestly didn’t expect it would be that incredibly cold. My brother even wore shorts! Good thing, my aunt brought extra. When we reached La Presa halfway, we wanted to have the experience of walking all the way there and embrace the chills we’re getting and so we did. What we didn’t see coming was the muddy road due to the rainy weather last night. So it somehow lessen the purportedly fun of the walk we took.
We went to the actual location of Forevermore in Sitio La Presa and I had the chance to sit on the lover’s bench of Xander and Agnes. (the two main characters of the said telenovela) Then we walked around further and saw the location where Agnes’ family at La Presa plants as farmers.
Even though we’re not Catholic, we accompanied Tito Rene & family to drop by St. Lourdes Grotto.
Then we decided to go to The Mansion. But then, we didn’t stay too long since you can only stay at the grounds to take photos and stuff.
After that, we went to Philippine Maritime Academy and went around to the various buildings they have and walked around. Pardon my silliness in the photo wherein I was laying on the floor around the cutesy florals. 😉
As our tummies seeks refuge, we ate at Happy Tummy which is one of the series of food places at The Ketchup Food Community which is near Wright Park, our next destination.
After getting our tummies satisfied, we headed to Wright Park and went horseback riding. After that, we went to the Strawberry Farm and ate strawberry ice cream which I incredibly and excessively love! Then of course, we picked out strawberries (not really!) at the farm.
Then we went back to Baguio Holiday Villa to chill. Then had dinner at The Red Table. More deets on my #BaguioEats soon.
