Baguio: Food and Events

We were in Baguio for my birthday last November 8. Aside from celebrating my birthday in my favorite city in the Philippines, +Jomar and I were also speakers for the Google community Baguio events last November 9. He will be speaking at +GDG Baguio's Devfest while I will be sharing about Google+ and Google Search for Education for +GBG Baguio's gDaysXBaguio.

The morning started with a round of breakfast from +Azalea Baguio. The joint morning program happened while we moved from one room to another and we also visited the ongoing launch of +GEG Philippines in +Berkeley School Baguio. We had lunch at Canto in the Ketchup Food Community.

Delicious food from Canto!

After lunch, I was running going to my session which was suppose to start by 2:00PM. Apparently, lunch for the event was late and thus all the sessions were delayed by around an hour.

After the event, we all had a pizza-pasta buffet lunch at +Tradisyon Coffee Shop. I was so full. Be sure to try the Tiramisu as well in the dessert buffet - very delicious.

The Pasta Man! He prepared the pasta for the customers.
You have to choose whether red, white, or oil-based sauce and
you could choose from the different pasta they have.

The picture looks like a ghost pizza movie. LOL!
They have five different pizza and you could get as many as you want.

I can't wait to come back to Baguio. Thanks to +Vince and +Reymart for taking care of us and congrats to them on the very successful event.

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

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.
