A Rainy Weekend Up North

I took it as a joke when hubby first told me that we'll be driving to Baguio and Vigan. These days, the weather is rainy so the roads are wet and slippery. I also warned him about the landslides and zig-zaggy mountain roads. Well, Saturday came and it was sunny so the trip pushed through.


I made it to Baguio for the third time!
My outfit here: leopard Forever 21 earrings, bubble-sleeved top from HerBench, Collezione denim shorts with braided belt, leopard tights (not obvious in the photo) from Surplus Store, and my DIY leopard shoulder bag.

A big landslide somewhere in Kennon Road. Actually, we saw lots of this going up.

When in Baguio, I guess you know you'll feast on veggies like this one. A plate of seafood chopsuey. Yummy!

I also gotta try this. The so called strawberry taho-- only in Baguio my dear!

And the best fries!! It went well with my four seasons "mock cocktail" or mocktail as they call it in a small bar over at Session Road. Oh no, it's not that green liquid in the photo! :)


Stayed here for 3 hours, listening to the live music, and talking to hubby and BIL.


The next day was Sunday, so we dropped by the pink church.
What I wore that day: Forever 21 plain top, Penshoppe biker jeansleopard Forever 21 earrings, DIY leopard shoulder bag, Zara flats, Guess watch, and a random pink scarf from Turkey.

At THE LION HEAD, on the way home.

Hubby realized that it wasn't easy to go up north. It was foggy and it rained again that Sunday afternoon so we decided not to go to Vigan anymore. After looking around SM Baguio, Session Road, Baguio Cathedral, Burnham Park, and Camp John Hay, we proceeded to the city market and shopped for vegetables and other pasalubongs.

Hayyyy.. lots of places that we weren't able to visit because of the rainy weather. Honestly, the trip was a little tiring, but still fun. It was like a breathe of fresh air, seeing lots of greens, and eating lots of greens.

Happy weekend everyone!

  8. @amZ88: Roads are safe, but you just have to be careful with the curves and the slippery areas where water falls. Hey, isn't it cool to have mix of cultures within you? :)

    @blackshirt: Yes, it is! You should try it once you visit Baguio!

    @Dhemz: Thanks sis. Visited you back. Hihi.
