2017 Week 40: Weekend in Baguio

September 25-October 1, 2017

I went home to Baguio last Friday, September 29, after shift. I did not have any specific agenda but since my friend was also in town for the weekend, we planned to meet up for some food trip. BOOM! Hehe. And so, off to food trip on Saturday.

I brought with me my nieces para mas masaya kahit ang kulit-kulit ng bulilit.

First stop. Arca’s Yard. I’ve heard about this place a long time ago but didn’t get the chance to visit it sooner hehe.

It is one of those old houses converted to a restaurant.

After lunch, we went to SM Baguio to buy some stuff and look around. My niece rode the carousel.

Our high school guidance counselor saw us and we were so surprised she still remembers our names! We had a good time exchanging stories that lasted for almost an hour.

Next pit stop for dinner was Oh My Gulay (OMG). OMG is a vegetarian restaurant and an art space in one.

We called it a night after dinner.

On Sunday, my sisters and our auntie went to visit another aunt who is sick. She has been to the ICU in September but is miraculously out, alive and kicking. She stays in bed most of the time but is still strong, can still eat and walk a bit with some assistance. Apart from the medicines, I think it’s her willpower to live that she’s still strong despite being sick.

I went back to Manila on Sunday night, after a quick dinner with the BF. He was sick and can’t stay longer so he went home right after dinner. Hay isa pa tong mamang ‘to.

Pictures!

↑We were there at night and it was quite crowded because there was an exhibit so it was hard to take pictures of the whole place.

↑Maiiwan ang mga bata dahil adulting ang mga adults aka we were visiting a sick relative that day.

↑My 2 sisters and our auntie (mom’s sister). Breakfast first at Jack’s Restaurant, one of my favorite restaurants in Baguio because of its affordable meals. And no, we did not plan our color-coordinated outfits hehehe.

Naabutan na itong pang week 40 ng another weekend, hence, happy weekend hehehehe.

The end.

2017 Week 28: Another Weekend in Baguio

July 3-9, 2017

Hello hello! What happened again last week? Let me see…

Work

The third vendor that we are considering for our system requirement had their proof of concept presentation last June 29. Therefore, we finalized our vendor scorecard last week. I sent out the final version to the group for their ratings.

Some of the team members at work went out for lunch and then meeting after. Lunch was courtesy of employer. Thanks, employer!

My order of grilled salmon with mango salsa at The Frazzled Cook. This is yummy! We also shared different flavors of cakes for dessert. 

The purpose was for us to brainstorm on our 2018 initiatives. Yes, it’s budget season once again, hence the bosses are collecting all initiatives from different groups so that costs are factored in. I personally think that we were productive because there were a lot of ideas gathered in less than 2 hours. Looks like the offsite meeting is effective. Sana maulit muli. Boss…. 😀  😀  😀

I went home to Baguio last Friday, after our meeting. It was my mom’s death anniversary last July 6 and we decided to have a simple get together last July 8. We invited her friends in church for a prayer service. Thank you, DMC community.

It was a fun time to be with family and friends again.

I went to mass on Sunday and traveled back to Manila in the afternoon so that I get more rest time. Iba na talaga ang tumatanda hahaha.

And that’s it.

Have a great week (or weekend) ahead.
