I’m finally back from my “Tour de Luzon”, my first experiential working vacation! My current FB status: Missing the mountains and loving the city lights! 🙂 What’s up Manila! ♥
Here are some pictures from my Sagada trip where I stayed for five days. Enjoy!
The house where I stayed, literally at the top of the mountains!!! We have to walk for about fifteen minutes to go down town. I was panting like a horse going up and down! Hihi
Meet Nanay Linda who took care of me in Sagada. She is definitely a good cook, a groovy seller, a loving and patient mother. We spent the chilly mornings and afternoons together – eating breakfasts and walking to Poblacion together, having merienda while we have our chitchats and looking at the scenic pines view from the window. Ahhh, priceless moments.
First meal after my 14 long hours of travelling MNL to SGD! Takaw mode ON! *BURP!*
Revisiting Echo(cho) Valley(ley). Can’t stop myself from shouting out loud (loud loud!) 😀
Hugging the same tree back in 2008! I’m just so giddy here… HUG A TREE. 🙂
“Yogurt House is one of the original restaurants in the small village which started serving homemade yogurt to residents and tourists. As its fame grew so did its menu which now serves complete meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner with cocktails for the night owls.”
Manong Mark, a Councilor and my personal Tour Guide, and I treated ourselves a refreshing healthy meal for the day! Looking forward for my delectable dessert – Yogurt!
My Pan-Fried Beef with salad on the side. I ate the whole thing! ‘Twas so yummy I can’t help myself from finishing the plate. Hooray for their large servings of food! Thumbs up!
I had my yogurt in P-L-A-I-N. Hah ’twas so PURE I din’t finish my dessert! Umay alert BUT I was lucky I ordered it plain lang. I hope they serve it chilled, guess that would be much better to munch on. I was eating half of it for about an hour! Hihi
“The traditional Dream Catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.” Photo above taken by yours truly. 🙂
To sum all, I’ve had a very fulfilling stay in Sagada. Working vacation actually. I was in tears inside the bus as I left Nanay Linda and my haven for days. I can’t wait to go back sometime in December this year! *Crossing my fingers!*
