My blog is now 2years old! Happy Anniversary to me!
April 22: Day 2
During our second day, when it was just about lunchtime, our driver suggested to try a hole-in-the-wall eatery that’s just beside Baguio Country Club. Actually, the only thing that separates this restaurant from the country club is just a wall. Hence, Ober Da Bakod.
Being the adventurous family that we are, we tried out a few dishes that Ober Da Bakod’s “Countryside Eatery” had to offer. But this joint is not too friendly to PWD’s or the young “once” – The steep flight of stairs can be quite discouraging.
“Ober da Bakod” is a hole-in-the-wall eatery. You want good and affordable home cooked meals? Try this place!
April 22: Day 2
Our 2nd day in Baguio was alloted to shopping for good finds at the Maharlika Market and eat certain kinds of food that we crave for which are only available in this city. The only time that I can bring my kids and husband to the market is when we are outside of Metro Manila or touring a balikbayan around. “Take Advantage” mode ON!
The busy market sidewalk!
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved going to the market. I don’t have any qualms about it even when most markets are wet or smelly and fly infested. That’s the kind of training I got from my grandmother, Mama Julie. She would take me and my cousin to the market every Saturday. This is what I want my kids to learn also. They will eventually have their own families so I’m slowly breaking them in to these kinds of activities.
April 21: Day 1
On the road to…
2 kids and a “baby”!
Just had to take this mandatory shot before setting foot at Kennon Road.
And we meet again Mr. Lion!
My Baguio trip won’t be complete without having a picture of Mr. Lion. Lol.
Since Max, our teacup Pomeranian, was with us, I had to look for a place that is pet-friendly and can accommodate 8 people (that’s us!) comfortably. My option was to look for a reputable transient house. Good thing I remembered that my former neighbor has a place that’s being rented out up in Baguio. I negotiated with her, checked the pictures and closed the deal.
Do you love getting rewards? I do! And I get my favorite rewards from Globe! Like me, I am sure you have been getting text alerts about your rewards, too. Do not ignore these sms prompts! Your points can buy you coffee during your break time, or movie tickets for your date or to simply gas up your almost empty fuel tank for as low as 50 points!
Last week, “Globe Rewards” launched its newest offering, giving us subscribers more ways to use our points.
