Get geared up, You can never start unless you wear the obligatory costume. Joke
Safety first, each riders are required to wear a helmet and harness for Safety purposes.
shots taken while waiting to be called for the canopying ^_^ The way to Eldorado, joke, To start this journey, Please buckle up ur seat belts and harness and lastly enjoy the view.. Well this is me trying to snap a pic while hanging on air. And im literally shaking coZ of fear of heights but luckily no matter how cowardly I am, I still made it😁😁Yey Look at how naturally he smiles, not even a slightest fear occupied his face.
After three rides of Canopying then you'll take a small trek proceeding to the thrillest Funnicking
the helmet and harness makes us look like construction workers. I find it really cute though 😂😂😃😃😄 All the time I was calling boyfie Project Engineer LOL we took a small trek proceeding to the sky walk and funnicking While on the funnicking ride. The operator was really funny on how she described it as the last and most thrilling ride. I was preparing myself and gripping my boyfie for the possible danger of the ride and the funniest of them all, Is that you take a 6 seater ride that would slowly go up and go down. After the ride, thats the time we found out her sarcasm of how thrilling the ride was. She got us all scared though 😂😂😃😃😃😃😃😀😀 well atleast you'll get to enjoy this view with that ride
After that ride we then went to the Sky Walk
here you'll get to enjoy a clearer and fuller view of the place & enjoy the fresh cold breeze of air with a scent of pine trees i forgot to bring a monopod so this is our only shot together 😢😢😢
Right after Camp John Hay we went to SB in session road and took a short rest, Afterwards we then proceeded to Burmingham park
Ofcourse your burmingham experience wouldn't be completed if you won't take a boat ride at the lagoon.
Since Both of us doesn't know how to paddle, we took the pedal type of boat so we just have to pedal for our boat to move. Plus its easy to maneuver. ⛵⛵⛵⛵
right after the lagoon we then rested at the benches in rose park located across the burmingham park. my resting shot after all the paddling we made. Surely I lost a lot of calories there. Joke 😥😥😥😥😥😥😥 I took some pics of the white roses in the park 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 Taking random shots while resting
woke up early today to had our breakfast at Choco-Late de batirol. 😊😆😆😆
our breakfast, boyfie ordered pork tocino, egg and rice, and i ordered my favorite Champorado. Yey!!!! the famous Choco-Late de Batirol.. Yummm....
after breakfast we then headed to Wright Park
When your in Wright, you'll never be wrong
When In Wright park theres a lot of activities to do like horse riding, picture taking in igorot costume, with pink haired horses, big dogs or even have a tattoo. while exploring, you may also enjoy taking picture with various flowers surrounding the area While in Baguio, the Strawberry Taho is a must try, Im not a fan of strawberry but since the boyfie insisted me to try it, I was surprised to find out that the taho is such a treat. Yummy , honey~ish sweet with a slight kick of strawberry~ish flavour.
The hot taho is a perfect treat for the cold weather.
Just across the wright park lays The Mansion The White Mansion on top of the hill We decided to walk on the way to Mines View Park pero it rained ehhh so we took a taxi nalang Mines View Park....

Right after the heavy lunch we then headed to HillTop for their best seller dessert called Death.... oohhhhh
This is Death... A dark chocolate lava cake topped with vanilla ice cream...
This is a recommended must try dessert in Baguio by Trip Advisory and Yes... They were right.
we also ordered a Chocolate Moist Cake and boy this resto never failed to impress us with their desserts. No wonder their part of the Top 3 Resto's in Baguio. This is Hilltops Tablea Hot Choco and compared to the Choco batirol, No offense but this taste better ^_^ hehehe a creamy chocolatey flavor, or maybe im just not a fan of nutty flavored drink 😊😊😊😊😊
we decided to take a stroll at night in SM and session road. We stopped at this Korean food stall and had a bite of their Korean streetfood.
don't even dare ask what they are called hehehhee I completely forgot (and even had a hard time pronouncing their name) but they all taste good. Specially the Fish stick (ata) the one in the cup..
And before we end the night, Let me show you how Baguio looks like from our rooms veranda
The lights and the night ala Baguio
Starting up the day with this view

We had our breakfast at P85 Korean resto
Our breakfast consists of a ramyeon, kimbap, bite sized kimchi , eggrolls and ofcourse my fave Coffee Baguio's miniature 3D Map 1st floor of the museum consists of artifacts and ancient wooden material used by the igorots during their time, it includes their hand woven blankets, hand carved spoons, forks, spears and a lot more some of the handcarved spears, a small bunggalow and a hand carving of a male igorot carrying his catch for the day If you have a passion for art, you could either purchase this paintings or just admire the beauty and story hidden in each canvas The most intricately designed painting on display in the museum another beauty inside the museum This is painted by a child from baguio and I find this painting cute and simple.
So I posed the ❤ sign coz I love this a lot.
So this is us goofing around the museum
Right after Baguio Musem we then headed to the remaining Park on our List.
Welcome to Baguio's Botanical Garden
The view on top before you went down and explore Botanical garden There are also paintings and souvenirs sold inside botanical garden and infairness, ( no offense meant ) but some paintings there are prettier than the one ive seen inside the museum. you'll surely enjoy taking pictures and "Instagrammable" shots in botanical garden, the flowers, the view, the wind all adds drama to the perfect pic you always wanted to achieve. The obligatory Couple Shot
pasintabi sa mga kumakain hehehehe
There's also a Japanese Filipino Memorial Park located inside the garden more Japanese Filipino Memorial displays inside If you explore deeper, theres a cave hidden behind that Red gate The cave exterior and interior.
For the claustrophobic never even dare enter. its a bit creepy and scary inside we didnt even stay long there. 😨😨😨😨😨
Buddha miniatures along the pathway knowing me and my wildest ideas on taking pics specially with nature and flowers. Well here are some samples ^_^ Ofcourse your Baguio escapade would never be complete unless you try on the Igorot Costume. The boyfriend as the warrior and I am the Archer The pabebeng Amazona Shot, and the boyfie as the wood cutter hahahaha My entree: The local igorot flower vendor 💓 Never forget to try the local Strawberry Ice cream or taste fresh strawberries sold just outside Botanical Garden After all the walking we did, the tummy is now hungry so we headed to Fortune restaurant and have a taste and give verdict to their chinese cuisine. Their best sellers consists of the Yang-chow, sweet and sour steamed lapu-lapu & Pork ribs. When you dine they will serve a complimentary tea perfect for the very cold weather
Hungry for desserts??? Yes we are, right after our very late lunch,We then headed to Ozarks. 5 kilometers away from Baguio Plaza just to try their famous cheesecake.
According to the reviews, once you tasted their cheesecake you'll forget all the other cheescakes you've eated before.
hmmmm lets see!!!
This are Ozarks best seller Beer cheesecake and Chocolate Labuyo Cheesecake we also tried their french fries and had a bottle of beer and hot choco
For the Chocolate Labuyo Cheesecake, It has a rich dark chocolate flavor with a spicy kick from the Labuyo, you could actually see the small red chili pepper and flakes included in the cake, So this is a bit fiery.. Sweet and Spicy...
For the Famous Beer Cheesecake, it was yummy, rich, soft textured cheesecake. It is indeed delicious, But if you ask me, If im willing to take the long ride and hassle of eating that cake again, umm , maybe not. Id rather go back to hilltop and savour another Death cake 😊
