Going Around Baguio: Day 2

Day 1: April 28, 2017

Lakwatsa date: April 29, 2017

Today is not all touristy stuff. My tita, cousin and I met to go visit an ailing aunt.

Pit stops for the day:

*** Breakfast at Jack’s Mabini. Aside from Good Taste, we also love to dine at Jack’s for its affordable but flavorful meals. They have several branches in Baguio, one even along Session Road where we ate last month during the food trip with the nieces, but my tita wants the one in Mabini because they have bbq chicken which is not available in other branches.

*** Pacdal to visit aunt. Unfortunately, we did not know that yesterday was her scheduled dialysis so she was not at home.

*** Dropped by SM because my tita wants to check out those flowers on display. I went inside to use the restroom. However, I learned that there is an additional 10% discount when you pay or at least on line, about to pay on or before 12 noon.

Naloka ako! Nagmadali kong hinanap yung gustung-gusto kong lunch bag. It has 10% discount, plus another 10%! And then I found out that it has a lunch box, bottled water and spoon and fork pala when you buy it. Kaya pala ganon kamahal – Phhp 950.00. Nung una ko kasing nakita, akala ko, yung bag lang so sobra talaga syang mahal.

I walked around first pero binalikan ko kasi gusto ko talaga sya eh. The final amount  I paid after the discount was Php 688.5. If you remove the price of the lunch box and water bottle, below Php 500.00 na ang lunch bag alone, which is similar to the other bags I saw but didn’t like hihi.

Lock and Lock Lunch bag

*** Dropped by Porta Vaga to go to Assi Mart, a Korean grocery. My tita buys her tea there. I bought 1 box too. I also saw a cheese flavored ramen hehehe. I bought one so I can try it. Mahal lang. Php 65.00.

Korean tea

Ramen with Cheese! Update: I had this for lunch on Sunday and I made the mistake of putting all the sauce in the noodles. It was so spicy for my liking. I let it cool first before eating.

*** Went to Orchidarium again because my tita wants to check out the cactus. And fortunately for her, she was able to buy 1 bulb of Stargazer for only Php 100.00. It was a bargain because the shop got it from a plant whose stem broke during delivery. The other shop sells 1 bulb for Php 200.00.

*** Went to Good Taste for late lunch. Winner talaga ang lechon beans nila! And the cucumber lemonade.

*** We passed by one side of Burnham Park to look for strawberry taho. Waley. Baka sa umaga lang sila don at cooking time sa hapon hahahaha.

*** End of bulakbol with them. I went to Marbay to pick up the blouses I had altered yesterday. Hirap ng unproportional body. Doble gastos hahaha.

2017 Week 13: Birthday Celebrations | Realization | Family Bonding

March 20-26, 2017

Work

I’m not sure if there were other issues reported since I left the office last March 22. I’m not checking until now. I just asked some of my teammates to do this and that shoud issues arise. I was touched because they asked me to just enjoy my birthday leave and they’ll take care of everything while I was gone.

Thank you, teammates. Malay nyo paggising ko bukas, feeling generous na ako at bibigay na ako sa ice cream na hinihiling nyo hahahaha!

Weekend

My “weekend” started last March 23. Thank you, boss for approving my request. I was supposed to work from home on March 24 because of the newly deployed system. But upon learning that there were no issues since I left, I requested my boss to just extend my leave on the 24th. Thanks again, boss!

I have a separate post here for our birthday celebration just because.

On Friday, I brought my niece with me on my errands. She did not have classes so she was free to join me. Her teenager sister had their last day of exams last Friday so she cannot join us.

Kulitan with the kulit

On Friday night, I told my niece that we can go out on Saturday morning to buy ingredients so that she can bake something that she knows. Ano ang sagot sa akin ng teenager? Ayaw daw nya at di nya feel mag-bake kinabukasan. Naloka ang titang naninibago sa teenager niece hahaha.

But since I still wanted to bond with her kasi teenager na nga and I want to get to know her teenage self, I still asked if she would like to go out on Saturday. Mas gusto daw nya yun. Since this day was for her, I asked her what she wanted to do. Food trip daw. Hanep na yan. May nalalaman na silang food trip ngayon.

So food trip it is on Saturday, but not before she completed her chores at home in the morning. We were able to eat/buy and eat at home 5 out of 8 in the list.

Look at the list! I asked her to be more specific where to eat those kaya ganyan kadetalye hahaha. Wrong spelling lang si siomai :p.

Ang mahiwagang food trip list 😀 😀 😀

FoodTrip03252017-2

First stop at Jack’s restaurant for fried chicken and lumpiang shanghai.

FoodTrip03252017-3

Next stop was at McDonald’s for caramel sundae.

Syempre ang bunsong sutil, di talaga yan magpapatalo sa ate. We asked her to just stay home on Saturday kasi nga naisama ko na sya ng Friday. Aba hindi daw kasi wala naman daw syang nakain sa mga nasa list nung Friday. Iba raw kinain nya. At mas nauna pang maligo at magbihis kesa sa aming dapat lalabas hahaha!

Pero how can tita say no? I’m taking advantage of every opportunity kasing clingy pa sila sa akin because I’m sure darating ang time na di na sila sasama sa akin hahaha!

But actually, the original plan for Saturday was for us to hike Mt. Cabuyao. However, someone died in our barangay and as per practice, we cannot just pass by their home anytime, especially that the burial was last Saturday afternoon. As in, pag dumaan kami don pag uuwi na, we have to make sure that at least na tapos na ang libing. So wag na lang muna. Maybe we can do that on Holy Week instead.

Sunday was lunch with siblings at Good Taste. Ang dami ata namin na-order at medyo malaki ang bill ko. Pero sa dami ng inorder namin, mura pa rin yun sa lagay na yun hahaha. It is always noisy when my nieces and nephew are together but it’s a happy noise so I can tolerate that hahaha.

My childhood friend who now lives in another municipality in Benguet was in Baguio with her son so we met up at church and I asked her to join us for lunch for more chika time hehehehe.

Baby B! Medyo big boy na.

About my realization…the moment I arrived home on Thursday, I felt something that I have been waiting to feel comfortable about for the longest time. I guess it means I’m now ready if ever it happens. We’ll see how it turns out this year.

Ok, I think that is everything for last week.
