Tam-Awan Village, Garden in the Sky in Baguio City

One of the places I was keen on taking my kids to in Baguio is Tam-Awan village. It was a bit of a distance from the city but cabs in Baguio don’t really charge high and there are jeepneys that you can take to get there and back. In fact, we took the jeepney back because while it was easy to get a ride going there from the Strawberry farm, we found it hard to get a cab going back to the city proper. Learning about the Igorots I learned about Tam-Awan while searching for places to visit in Baguio […]

The Christmas Galaxy in Baguio City

I’ve seen photos of The Christmas Galaxy at Baguio Country Club a couple of years ago and thought right away to bring the kids to see it when we get the chance. It made Baguio more enticing to run off to with your kids on Christmas, which has been one of the things Jay and I have been dreaming of since we got married. But of course we cannot leave on Christmas eve because it’s when we usually have dinner with my side of the family. It’s a tradition. Plus, it has been a request that my parents made to […]

Albergo Hotel in Baguio

We booked our room at Albergo di Ferroca a.k.a. Albergo hotel via Agoda.com.

The deadline for our reservation was December 26. That was when the site claimed our payment online. We were so anxious about confirming our reservation that we called the hotel itself when our payment was taking too long to get through. We were quickly assured that the reservation had been made but that […]

Art and AirBnB: Celebrating Judah’s 6th Birthday

Since we enjoyed our first AirBnB experience, we thought that celebrating our youngest son’s birthday with another AirBnB booking was a great idea. This time, we decided to book a unit owned by our friends, Martel and Alelie, at SM Light Residences. Alelie told us ahead that the unit is so much smaller than the one we previously booked, but we didn’t mind. I read the feedback their very satisfied clients left on the site about their unit so we were confident that the place would be nice. (READ: A Birthday and an AirBnB staycation) Besides, smaller’s fine with us. We’re only […]

The Newbie Traveler

I have never really understood the value of travelling until I got married and started homeschooling my eldest son. As a child, my parents barely took us outside of Manila. The only traveling we’ve done, really, was going back and forth their hometowns in Batangas and joining other families from our church in beach get-togethers during summers. Back then, I only dreamed about going to Tokyo Disneyland which was such a hit to my classmates whose folks took them there for trips on school breaks, and Alaska, because I so wanted to see snow and Igloos, and thought that Eskimos […]
