First time in Baguio City.
I have been in Baguio City for several times now. I'm always excited to feel the cool breezing whether of the beautiful City of Pines. Before, I am just one typical traveler going back and fourth for Panagbenga Festival or the widely known Flower Festival.
October 22, 2008: It was even my 22nd Birthday, when I headed back to Baguio for work. I stayed and worked there for almost a year and three months. I had real fun with cool people with different personalities. At first, I don't know how to be with these kind of people, but eventually, I've got engrossed and finally became close friends.
During my stay, I met fabulous people, who are my friends now, at different places at different time. I had so much fun dealing differences of orientations and beliefs. In a way, I have loved the outcome. I'm far better than before.
The first place I visited there was at the Philippine Military Academy. One of my bosses way back in Ilocos Norte is actually working there, so I had real fun. Almi toured me around along with some stories. I even had the chance of meeting her class one late afternoon, before these cadets/cadettes head for training.
The well-known Strawberry Farm is one of my travels' highlights. I met my cousins there, who are staying near the place.
Before you head back to Manila, make sure you have visited The Cathedral, Mines View Park, Burnham Park, Lourdes Shrine, The Botanical Garden, The Mansion, Camp John Hay, The Butterfly Garden and more. Take a cab, and let the driver tour you around.
Some of my photos posted here are taken at different time, with different stories.
Baguio City celebrates Panagbenga Festival or most widely known as the Flower Festival every February. I had a chance to witness this very refreshing activity in the so-called City in the Mountains.

Spotted were Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Melai Cantiveros, Jayson Francisco, Angelica Panganiban, Robi Domingo, Maja Salvador, Paul Jake Castillo, PBB Housemates Tibo and Johan Santos, JC de Vera, Jackie Rice, Buboy Villar, The Panday Kids, and more.
