Baguio City 2012 (Day 1)

8:42:00 PM

From QC, my boyfriend and I rode a Victory Liner Bus (Cubao Terminal) at around 10:15am via SCTEX. We were on a Deluxe Aircon Bus (P715.00 each) that comes with a portable restroom and free wifi. Unfortunately, the connection was a bit unstable due to number of users on board. The trip was 6 hours long which was earlier than expected (estimated travel time from Manila - Baguio is 7-8 hours). We took a cab and went straight to our hotel to check-in. We stayed at Starwood Hotel located at Kisad Road cor Marcos Highway along the BGH Rotunda. We got a Deluxe Room (P1,400/night) + P300.00 fee if you use their AC. Here's a picture from Starwood's website.

After unpacking our stuff, we went straight to Mines View Park. We checked the shops there and bought some snacks. It was getting dark and due to unpreparedness, we forgot to bring a camera (oh noooo not the camera!!!). We won’t be able to take photos of the views using our camera phones without flash so we decided to head to SM Baguio to purchase a camera, luckily it was on sale. yey ^^

Say cheese!

After checking out the mall, taking pictures and watching a movie (and crying, thanks to the movie One More Try starring: Angel Locsin, Angelica Panganiban and Dingdong Dantes. lol) we felt hungry. We started looking for a place to eat at Session Road and ended up at Steak and Toppings Resto Cafe which was an easy choice for us since we love steaks. Great food and reasonably priced.

Before heading back to the hotel, we bought a slice of the famous Strawberry Shortcake at Vizco’s Restaurant and Cake Shop. Special thanks to google for suggesting this I loved it! This cake really is a must try :)

Sorry for all the photo grabbing, I was so busy enjoying this lovely cake and totally forgot to even take a picture of it. lol. After having dinner and desserts, we went back to the hotel. No need to turn on the AC as the Baguio climate lull as to sleep. Need this great sleep for tomorrow’s adventure. ^^
