Reminiscing Our Baguio Trip: Part 1

Last February, I mentioned in my "Baguio, Here We Come" post that Daddy and I, together with my friends, will be visiting Baguio to witness the Penagbenga 2009. And since I totally neglected making a post about it, I'm here now trying to reminisce that "memorable" trip. Indeed, it was a memorable trip, not only because Daddy, me, and my friends had a great time but also because of two not-too-happy incidents: 1. We almost crashed ourselves because we dived into the crowd while watching the flower float parade and 2. My beloved Casio Exilim digicam was "stolen" from the pocket of Daddy's jacket (huhuhu!).

We only stayed in Baguio for two days; but we had so much fun visiting all the nice places in the City of Pines. During the first day, we went to Philippine Military Academy, Camp John Hay, Manor Hotel, and Baguio City market to buy food and souvenirs. And on the second day, we first dropped by at Baguio Athletic Bowl to have a closer look at the flower floats. They were really so gorgeous and we couldn't help but admire the creativity of the people who made the floats because they really used fresh flowers. After taking lots of pictures there, we then proceed to Botanical Garden, Wright Park, The Mansion, Mines View, Bell Church, and Strawberry Farm. We also took pictures at Kennon road before we head home.

Baguio City is really a cool and nice place to visit. Although that weekend getaway was a little short, Daddy and I had a really great time since it's our very first out-of-town trip together (in spite, of course, our "stolen" digicam). But yeah, Daddy promised that he'll replace it with a better one - hmmm perhaps a DSLR this time. "Thanks in advance, Dad!" LOL

Here are our pictures during our Baguio trip. I know, this post is 2 months late, but then again, "it's better late than never" LOLs.
