Time flies so fast! Our baby Bochog already turned 1 last Sept 15, 2016. We gave him a simple Birthday Party at Jollibee F Manalo last Sept 18. We chose Jollibee since its less hassle sa preparation ng food, no need to book seperately for a venue (tipid tips) , and the kids, of course love Jollibee! We also liked how their hosts named Calet, accomodated our requests. Heso energetic (literal talaga like, patapos na ang party, same energy pa rin kung pano sya nagstart) that’s one of the reasons why we opted to do the party at Jollibee F Manalo. He was the party host when we surprised my Mom  last June with a JolliKiddie Party! He didn’t charge us with corkage fee  for the photo booth, just the electricity fee of P100. The venue can accomodate 90-100 pax, but since our guests reached 110 pax , medyo overcrowded ang area.

#BabyNumber3OnTheWay

SAGADA 2016

We went to Sagada last week for a quick weekend getaway with my College Buddies. It was a long, tiring, 12- hour trip from Manila including Lunch and some wiwi breaks. If you’re the type of person whose impatient sa malayong byahe, Sagada Trip is not for you.

DCIM106GOPROGOPR7215.

Sagada Trip via Banaue Route

Sagada is a town in the Cordillera Mountains, within the Philippines Mountain Province. Most of the activities require Trekking , and mahaba habang lakaran so if you’re not that type of person again who would go for a spot that will require you to walk and trek like a pro, Sagada is Again, not for you. There is no Pedicab or even Tricycle in Sagada so you really need to walk.

Sagada got more famous for its scenic view and romantic spots because of the hugot movie of 2015, That Thing Called Tadhana.

The Sumaguing Cave

The Sumaguing Cave is beautiful but not for Pulikatin and Hikain like me. LOL
I got scared and tired so I wasn’t able to finish it. I backed out after I hit the first leg.
I learned from our Kuya Tour Guides that the “G” in Stalagmite means Ground , and C in Stalactite means ceiling. So you guys know what to call the icicle shaped formation on the ground or hanging on the ceiling.

Day 2 : Echo Valley and Hanging Coffin

You need to trek downhill for the spot where you can see the hanging coffins. We trek for 30 minutes. I’m amazed on how the Igorots were able to put the coffins hanging on the mountains. Hanging a Deceased love ones on the mountain means, you are putting their soul near the gods. You need to pass by the public cemetery before you can reach the hanging coffin spot. It is also called echo valley because you can shout and an echo will bounce back. Unlimited Yell or Hugot  if you want!

Sagada Pottery
Address: Sagada-Besao Rd, Sagada
Contact: Siegrid – 0919-671-9875
Tessie – 0999-422-200

Ms Siegrid Demonstrated how to make a pot. She explained the process on how to get and process the clay from the mountain. They’ve been doing it for 15 years now . As per Ms Siegrid, making a pot from a Mountain Clay requires 6 months of patience and Practice!

Ganduyan Museum

The son of the owner of this museum explained to us the Igorot tribes’s cultures and tradition. Do not touch and do not take pictures while you’re inside the museum.

img_2793-1img_2794-1

St Mary’s Cathedral

A church that looks like one of those churches in Batanes. As per Kuya Bong, the priests serving in this church can still get the sacrament of matrimony.

img_2527

Lake Danum

I’m kinda disappointed on how it looked like compare to the photos I’ve seen online. But as per Kuya Bong, it was really a great spot before. Not sure what happened. By the way, this is a best camping site as per Kuya Bong.

Good Tastes Baguio

We had Lunch at Good Taste Baguio on our way home, and the food is really  good and for an affordable price! We only Paid P106 per head , group of 8 for 4 Viands and Rice! Good deal right?

Where to Eat in Sagada

Dining Out in Sagada means you need to wait for a minimum of 30 mins to an hour for the food to be served. We had that experience with Salt and Pepper Diner, and Sagada Brew. Not sure how they manage restaurants there but I think they need to improve and increase their man power. The only place that made us all happy and full was the Sagada Lemon Pie House. The Lemon Pie is a must try when you are in Sagada!

Oh well, I always cry at weddings. Didn’t know that it will also let me realize na
ang TANDA ko na. Last week, we went to a cousin’s wedding and we saw a
dalaginding na panay selfie sa loob ng simbahan. Hubby said ” Si *toot* oh, dalaga na.
Dati ang bata pa nya. Ang tanda na naten Nay.”

Onga naman, I realized that Ive been working for 12 years , got 2 Kids already and
got married twice (don’t get me wrong, of course same groom, civil and church
ang ibig kong sabihin)

It means, ang tanda ko na talaga. Reality Check:  Last April ay 29 na ko. Gosh!

So here’s a compilitation ng mga senyales na malapit ka na Mag 30.

1) Hindi ka na masyadong Party Animal.

562638_3528706029697_1433504281_n

Party party Sa Puerto galera!

-Mas gusto mo na matulog, or eat out pag weekends kasama ang pamilya.

2) Futuristic ka na

budget calculation

source: madmonkeyhostels.com

– Alam mo na ngayon ang budget and expenses for next couple of months

3) Ang dami mo ng plans para sa mga magulang mo

13435320_1558273014467458_2501296556969717840_n

Check na from my Bucket Lists: Kiddie Party for Mother Dear. Never pa sya naka Experience ng Birthday Party kaya Tadaaaa!

-Kung dati, i gri-greet mo lang sila ng Happy  Fathers day and Mothers Day,
ngayon may gusto ka ng ma achive na mga bagay na di pa nila nagagawa sa tanang
buhay nila. Marerealize mo na totoo ang kasabihan na kasabay ng bilis ng panahon,
ang pagputi ng buhok ng iyong mga magulang

4) Marami ka palang Utang

PHP_2010_New_Generation_Currency_Banknotes (1)

– May mga bagay na napag gastusan mo for the past few years na hanggang ngayon
ay binabayaran mo. Tapos marerealized mo na , sana di na ka na lang umutang.

5) Marami kang regrets pagdating sa Savings

-Naiisip mo na pagtuntong mo ng 30, dapat stable ka na . Kotse, bahay etc Pero di pa
aabot ang savings mo. Bigla mo maiisip na sana mas nagipon ka nung 25 yrs old ka palang.

6) Speaking of Savings, May listahan ka na ng Ibat Ibang Klase ng Savings na Gusto mong i achieve. 

-Dahil gusto mo mag save, magbabasa ka sa internet tungkol sa pano makaka ipon.
After mo magbasa, isusulat mo na ang Family Savings, Emergency Savings,
Retirement Savings , at Travel Savings . Unless Hindi tayo parehas ng nabasa =)

7) Minsan naiisip mong mag ME Time.

Me-Time

hercampus.com

-No Offense kay Jowa/Asawa, minsan gusto mo umalis magisa (or ako lang siguro
yun)

8) Pag may lakad ang Tropa, gusto mo Plus 1 ang mga Anak at asawa.

-Naiisip mo na time is gold, kaya dapat laging kasama ang pamilya pag restday.
(Contradicting sa #7 so I think ako lang talaga ang may problema)

9) Sa Home Section,Handyman or Foodcourt na ang Favorite Hang out mo sa Mall

-Dati sa Accessories and Clothing section, pero ngayon more on pang family at pang

bahay na ang priority mong bilin or i window shop.

10) Bihira ka ng magka CRUSH

– Mapapa isip ka na na kahit di perpekto yung napangasawa mo e nakapangasawa ka.
bago ka mag 30. Kaya di ka na masyadong nagkaka CRUSH.

(P.S : Ito ay based on my own experience lamang.)

We’ve been hearing a lot of positive feedback about Boracay Toilet so we decided not to leave the island without tasting food served in bath tubs, toilet bowls and urinals. This Resto was also featured in Rated K so we added it in our “To Do’s ” when we go to Bora.

DCIM104GOPROGOPR5352.

Cool!

I love the concept and How it was set up  (an idea inspired by popular toilet themed cafe in taiwan name Modern Toilet – Taipei Ximending ) . The Resto is located in Station 1, Main Road.

DCIM103GOPROGOPR4599.

Main Road of Station 1

I love how they rename the dishes like Chicken Pork A Poo Poo (Chicken Pork Adobo) Man, its kinda disgusting but cool!

DCIM104GOPROGOPR5351.

The staff are accommodating too and they are ready to be your instant photographer!

When it comes to the Foods/Dishes, Medyo Pricey and not worth it for the price. Not so happy with what we ate, hindi ako nabusog. They also have Business Hours like 11am-2pm Only then it will resume 5pm-7Pm na so twice kaming bumalik.

I will still rate it 7/10 Overall and a Must Visit Place in Boracay. 

We went to Boracay last week for a quick Summer Escapade. We booked for a 2 days/2
nights accommodation in Sun Villa Resort and Spa Hilltop. The resort’s ambiance was very relaxing and the staff were very accommodating! If you really want to relax and unwind, this resort is the place to be.

DCIM103GOPROGOPR3954.

The resort is 5 mins away from D-Mall and the Beach (Station 2), good thing, they have
a shuttle service for guests who wish to go there. Tricycle Fee is P60 One way if the
shuttle/driver is not available.

Welcome Drinks

We got the 2 days/2 nights accommodation for Php 5,600 only with breakfast for 2,
Semi Deluxe Room via Agoda. When we arrived, they upgraded our Room to Deluxe
without any charge at all. The room was spacious, with 3 Beds in total, Own fridge,
clean restroom and a properly working AirCon .

The way up to the resort was a little tiring, but you can always look on the brighter
side of the story. Nakakapayat ang pag akyat sa Resort na to. =)

DCIM103GOPROGOPR3961.

Good Morning Bora! 

I love how they value their customers. We left the resort at 4pm even if the check out
time was 11 AM. Yes, they let us stay (and sleep) in the lobby while we were waiting for
Southwest Tours to pick us up.

Overall, I will rate this resort 9/10. Highly Recommended!

Here’s the contact info for reservations/inquiries:

I was born in summer and that means that my birthday celebration will
always be our family outing too. I think my Mom should have named me
“Summer” instead of Annielyn LOL.

The first plan was Villa Rivera Resort but we arrived late (noon time) so wala
ng available cottages. I think its a blessing in disguise na rin since Noah’s Leisure
Park is better than Villa Rivera.

There is only one thing that they need to improve: They Need to add more shower rooms and Rest rooms. We just use the Shower Faucet due to lack of shower rooms. 

I will still rate Noahs Park a 9. The Entrance Fee is worth it.

We welcomed Dylan Riley to the christian world last Jan 17, 2016. It was just a simple gathering of close friends and relatives. He was 4 months old when he was baptized. We had a Little Elephant Baptismal Theme for Dylan

 Santuario Del Sto Cristo Parish
183 F.Blumentrit Street, A. Bonifacio, San Juan, 1500 Metro Manila

Website: santuariosantocristo.com/

Baptism Fee : P200
Sunday Baptism Schedule: 10am-11am
This church is very important to us since this is where we exchanged our “I do’s” and si Dylan ang naging outcome LOL (Honeymoon Baby)

Baptismal Requirements:

1)Birth Certificate
2)Marriage Certificate
3) Permission from our Parish (Parish in Sta Mesa)
4) Seminar for Baptism

We are residing in Sta Mesa so we need to get the Permission letter from our parish first (Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Sta Mesa) before we can have the baptism in San Juan. Permission Letter costs P100. You just need to go to the office and ask for it. Dont forget to bring the Birth Cert and Marriage Certificate.

12647213_1517521348542625_8811799747854811096_n

Regarding Seminar for Baptism, parents are required to attend this. You will be asked for dates on when you can attend the seminar. We had ours last Jan 9 2016 at 5PM. The seminar lasts for 1 1/2 hr.

Things that I love about Baptism in Santuario Del Sto Cristo Parish: 

-Organized and not overcrowded

-We had a seminar which let us fully understand what Baptism is

-Affordable.

Things that I would love to improve about their Baptism: 

-There is only a primary ninong and ninang who will light the candle. It will be better if lahat ng godparents may participation sa pag light ng candles, or even sa pagbless ng water. We were on the altar then the rest ng godparents were on their seats.

This is the only shot that we had sa buhos tubig ritual due to the restricted areas for photographers

-Restricted Areas for Photographers: We hire a photographer during the event and she had a hard time taking pictures specially sa mga special rituals like blessing ng water and pagpapahid ng oil because of  restriction sa place. We were on the altar and the photographer can only take photos near the front seat/rows.

We’ve been hearing a lot of positive feedback about shakeys. What I love about it is, they can serve the food buffet style.

The party areas is also spacious enough for us (50+ Pax) . We also picked Shakeys because it is budget friendly. They are very accommodating too with our requests. The cake, and souvenir mugs were already delivered to the store 2 days before the event and they took care of it, walang basag ang mga mugs and they made sure na di madidistort ang cake. I also requested for a simple program where in magbibigay ng messages ang mga ninong and ninang but they made it a special program cause they added some trivia games for kids and adults regarding Dylan’s Birth Info. Prizes: Stuff Toys and Lunch Box!

Haunted Mansion

Baguio is also known for entities , lost souls and ghost stories. So you should never miss visiting one of the haunted places in Baguio which is the White Laperal House or The Haunted Mansion. It looks like an old Victorian creepy house. This is located near Teachers Camp (one of the haunted spots in Baguio too), Leonard Wood Roads Baguio City.

Awooooo

Awooooo

It was really creepy inside the house, I don’t like the Aura.

By the way, there’s an entrance fee of P50.

As per http://doonposaamin.ph/ blog, this house is owned by one of Baguio’s oldest clans, The Laperals, built in 1920s. This house was used by Japanese as garrison and torture area. The owner of the house, Don Roberto died after having slipped and hit his head in the front yard of the house.

Bell Church
Bell Church Rd, Baguio

This beautifully designed Taoist Temple is located along the road going to La Trinidad Benguet. Bell church will make you feel that you are in China due to its beautiful landscape designed with dragons,flags and bell.It is open from 6am-5pm.

We were not able to actually exsplore the whole place since kuya cab driver was waiting outside. He’s so kind that he let us check the temple for couple of minutes without asking for additional charge. We were on our way to strawberry Farm when we checked it out. Strawberry farm is like 10 minutes away from Bell Church so don’t miss checking this out when you visit Strawberry farm.

I should say that this is one of the best spots in Baguio.
