Rainy Days

It’s been raining like crazy the past few days and also today. Thankfully I’m off and one of the reason I’m lazy to get out of the house. haha! I realized that after some years of staying abroad, you get lazy to go out. All I want to do is to rest. Most probably the pressure and the stress at work is too much these days.

So last Tuesday I was in Abu Dhabi and I’m glad Doctor V had some government work to do, I decided to take an off too and do some of my paper works. But the rain stopped me from going very early, the bus left when I arrived at the station no breakfast and damn, too much traffic jam on my way.

I finished on that day too and had decided to visit my cousin and a friend. I had my lunch with them because I was literally hungry   and then helped my niece do some of her projects. Auntie duties. haha! And when I was about to go, I just got an emergency call so I have to cut my stay in the city short. It’s one of the most stressful days in our life. But everything is well now.

I was almost there in Grand  Mosque. Unfortunately it was raining and as I had said I was really hungry so I skipped going there. And thanks to my handy dandy book, I can refresh my mind with some work stuffs while on the go.

The Mind Museum

We were planning to visit National Museum but we realize we lack of time and my aunt recommended that we go here in Mind Museum. We enjoyed our visit here though we were not that thrilled (me and my younger sister) as we are expecting more. The museum should be interactive however, most of the stuffs were not working. Booo.

So here are the moments we had when we were there and I think I have some more. ^^

Bencab Museum

We went to the most talked about museum in Baguio, Bencab Museum owned by Ben Cabrera. I would say it’s worth to go to this place though it’s quite far. I mean really far. I can’t remember how long was our travel time. We took taxi up to the market and from there, we rode a jeep going to Asin. Just ask the jeepney drivers that you’ll go there and they’ll tell you to hop in. And my sisters were right, I think it’s around 30-45 minutes ride. If you’ll take a taxi, it’ll be around 500-600 pesos,quite expensive. T.T

If you appreciate art, you must see visit this place. There are tons of artworks you can see and each section are divided so you won’t get lost. ^^ Here are some of the arts that I like and totally appreciated though there are really lots!

And after seeing the artworks, there’s a cafe at the basement, Cafe Isabel. It’s a good place to appreciate art and enjoying organic foods. Now I missed the Strawberry vinaigrette over the salad and cucumber mint shake. It’s so~ so~ good. ^^

Baguio version 2.0

I was back again in Baguio for this year’s vacation with the same reason, for my sister’s graduation. We were in a different hotel and went to different places that I haven’t tried. We were there for five days and as if the hotel was already our second home. Haha! We’ve been here and there, eat and stroll around.

More to go~ I got tons of photos to share. haha!

Addendum:

As what I had mentioned, we were in Baguio for five days. We stayed in Bloomfield hotel and it was really a very good hotel. The room was spacious, we got an aircon and fridge there! Unlike from last year. The employees are nice and they’ll help you with your things and even catching a cab. They have a nice café, Patch Café. They serve good food and coffee. It’s also a walking distance going to SM and to my sister’s school. One time, I had a morning walk and went to Sunshine Park. There were students who were conducting P.E. doing traditional dances. I got a free show!  

Post graduation! My sister and I were to bored to go back to hotel so we just strolled around and had some shake in Beanstalk. It’s around Upper Session Road. It’s a good place though. ^^

Way to go~

XOXO!

 

I Was Away and I am Back

I was gone for a month for my annual leave and I left without notice unless we have a direct contact. *snickers*

Whoops~ Enjoying a cup of coffee before my departure, enjoyed my view with the Palm Jumeirah along the window and yay, me and my sister, prevacation weight. haha! I gained weight! And they all said, it’s alright because vacations are meant to ruin your diet.

I was away and I enjoyed traveling and meeting my old good friends. I went back again to Baguio for my sister’s graduation rites and went to Ilocos with my mom and sister. And I swear, you should try going to Ilocos. Though I got sick because of the water source, but that didn’t stop from enjoying everything.

This is just a spoiler of my vacation. I’ll post them up soon, promise. ^^

P.S. I was planning to get a Diana camera or an analogue camera but I failed. 😦
