Biak na Bato Trip

Last March 14, 2009, our class went to the historical place of Biak na Bato in San Miguel, Bulacan.
The reason? To have our pictures taken for the annual-like project. That was the first time our class went out together.
It was an hour before lunch when we arrived there. Having so much to do, we decided to eat early lunch to enjoy our walk and spelunking after.
We had seen the centennial tree in the place. As we continued to walk by, we had been able to see things which were new to our sight considering that majority were their first time to see the place.
One of the places we had seen was the Bat Cave. Our tour guides said that Katipuneros used to make that cave their resting place during the old days. Inside the cave was a small clear stream. We took our pictures for the annual inside the cave and headed to our next destination.
The next plan was to enjoy the rest of the trip... swimming – actually, they didn’t able to swim instead, they just plunged themselves into the waters. It was an exhausting trip! Whew! Four kilometers of walking and climbing high places… rocky pavement…. What a trip to remember!
REMARKABLE LINES:
"Nagkabiyak-biyak ang paa ko sa kalalakad sa Biak na Bato... pero masaya ako."
BIAK NA BATO:
Why is it called Biak na Bato? Biak na Bato…. according to our tour guides was formed due to what they call “SIGNOS” or flash flood from the top of the mountain.
“Hinampas ng rumaragasang tubig na galing sa taas ng bundok yung mga malalaking bato. Dahil sa malakas yung impact ng pagragasa, nabibiyak ang mga bato…”- Ate Dory

Baguio Forest House : Bed and Breakfast

One of the best places to visit and stay while you are in Baguio is this cozy place where you will always feel like it’s Christmas – Baguio Forest House. Fortunately, I was able to experience staying here even for just a night for business matters. Literally, I felt like I’m inside Santa’s house – the color, the ambiance, and the designs!

I must admit, I really love the place and now I understand why most of the people I used to ask of the where-to’s in Baguio always recommend this place.

Ambiance
One of the things I loved during my stay this September 2015 was the ambiance of each place of the house. Every part of the house is a good place to relax and feel comfortable.






The Room
The room is also one of the things I love about this place. I wish I have the same style in our house. Rustic and quaint ! I heard the house is owned by an architect which explains why the design is simply captivating.



The Food
Needless to say, the fact that I took photos of the food before eating is really som…

Must-Do's Whenever You Visit Baguio

Baguio city never loses its charm for me. It is always lovely all year round. Though this Summer Capital City of the Philippines you see now does not come close to how beautiful and breathtaking it was before, I always look forward on going here to enjoy the cold weather and most importantly, to experience the new things it has to offer for me to try and to see.

And because of that, I have created my list of the must-do’s in Baguio City that I have discovered so far. Some might sound ordinary but I hope you find most of it as interesting.
1. Have a lunch or dinner at Good Taste

This place was only recommended by my cousin living in Baguio. If you are looking for good food, this restaurant is just right for you. They serve mainly Filipino dishes. Prices are reasonable. Food quality is average, and serving sizes are more than adequate.

Location: No.8 Lapu Lapu Street, Baguio, Luzon, Philippines (Just nearby Burnham Park)

2. Have a cup of coffee in Cafe by The Ruins This place is a good st…

7 Things I Consider in Travel Photography

Have you noticed how some of the travel photos of other people are exactly the same as what you see on postcards?

Yes, I also have some photos like that! I know it's common to capture those scenic spots; but after all, I realized, my photos are kinda boring. LOL! Not looking like it's originally captured by me.

I'm no expert in terms of photography but below are my recommended things to do when taking travel photos.

1. Make "Out of the Postcard Photography".
This concept has been my goal. Shoot landmarks in a different perspective. Who knows, you might discover something new and make stories about it. It could be that the rear view of the famous landmark resembles a thing no one ever thought of? Make sense?
Don't go traditional.

2. Include local 'signages' in your photos.
In this way, your photo will have a good sense of place.Take a good shot of stores, restaurants with different names, road signs, and anything that is unique in the place.
