Day 1: Road Trip to Baguio

Travel to Baguio City

Day 1 of our anniversary celebration was spent on the road going to Baguio City. +Jomar Tigcal and I met up with Mama +Chelle Gray+Jerome Locson, and +Reymart Canuel in McDonald's near Greenbelt 1 to wait for Ms. +Aileen Apolo and +Maricar Dabao with the van.

Hot Chocolate from McCafe

We left Makati at around 8:30 AM. We had lunch in Max's Restaurat at SM City Rosales in Pangasinan and met with Allan Medrano there. By 3:30 PM we found ourselves in the beautiful city of Baguio. We went straight to +Azalea Baguio and rested a bit.


Burnham Park

We were informed that there are dancing fountains in Burnham Park which was cool so we went there first before heading for dinner.


O Mai Khan

For dinner, we went to O Mai Khan. We occupied a long table and on our end was +Jomar Tigcal+Reymart Canuel+JR Padilla, and +Allan Paulo Medrano. We were discussing about our events as well as the different apps and technologies (geeky talk). They all had a piece of the Mongolian buffet while Jomar and I ordered something else. 


PNKY Cafe

After dinner, we walked (yes, walked) to PNKY Cafe for desserts. Ube crepe is really good.

Chocolate Fondue and Ube Crepe

We all went back to the hotel tired. I still need to prepare some content to my presentation the following day.

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!
