Anniversary Celebration in Baguio

+Jomar Tigcal and I celebrated our second anniversary last August 4, 2013 in Baguio City with our dearest friends from both +GBG Philippines and +GDG Philippines.

The morning started with another round of delicious breakfast from +Azalea Baguio. Since we already checked out our room, we decided to stay in the common area of the three-bedroom suite of Mama +Chelle Gray and Ms. +Aileen Apolo.

At around 10 AM, we went straight to Good Shepherd. Purchased ube and peanut brittle. I always say that the best Ube are from Good Shepherd! After this, we went inside Camp John Hay and it was my first time to visit the places below:

Cemetery of Negativism

It's not a real cemetery. It's a hill with tombs in it. In the tombs, negative thoughts were written.


Bell Amphitheater

So pretty! Here's a panorama shot:

Ketchup Community: Canto

For lunch, we eat at Canto inside the Ketchup Community. Jomar had the Lomo Ribs which were huge while I had the Chili Burger (which wasn't chili, LOL I love spicy food and I thought it was a spicy burger my bad for assuming). We also had Taco salad which was lovely.



After lunch, we had to go back to Manila and I arrived home 7:00 PM. It was surprisingly earlier than I thought. Six hour drive and without traffic.

For the sake of it, here's our photo booth picture during the Women 3.0 event in Baguio. Happy Anniversary dearest +Jomar Tigcal!

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to Compassion.ca, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.



We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
