Christmas 2013

I had to be on MIA the last month of last year to be able to have a full experience of my real life. I realized I have spent so much time dealing with my cyber life that it had easily become a hindrance for me to stay focused on things that really matter. Don't get me wrong, I'm still in love with blogging. It's just that it's been a while since I got away from this and the social media to really enjoy my surroundings and the people around me without any distractions.

For the holidays, I was away from work and the internet (well, almost) for 2 weeks. And I sure did have a blast! We spent Christmas in the City of Pines. Though this was my nth time to visit Baguio, it was still an entirely different experience because I was with Ralph this time. In fact, we were with his entire family.

You know, the usual. A lot of photo ops and touring around. I have to mention 2 disappointments though: First, the traffic was crazy. Second, it wasn't that cold. I think it was when we're back in Manila when the temperature in Baguio really dropped to around 12-15 degrees Celsius. It was more than 20 when we were there.

Aside from that we were a big group (29 heads), another unique thing about this particular visit was that I was able to finally try the 50s Diner. I've heard a lot of raves about this restaurant so during Christmas Eve, hubby and I went there with his sister, Cham and cousin, Marian.

The verdict? Nothing fancy. The serving was bigger than expected and the milk shake was OK. Quite affordable, actually. We didn't get to eat burgers and steaks though as we were reserving some space for the noche buena.

3D2N well spent! And I was finally able to see my goddaughter, Andy in person. And as usual, I went home not with a lot of Good Shepherd goodies but with 2 big bags of fresh vegetables for the folks.

So that's how I spent my first Christmas as a married woman. Cheers to a bigger family and "manier" foods! Again, I thank my happiness-sponsor, God. You're the best! Thank You for being the reason for this season.

How was your Christmas? I'd love to hear from you!

  1. This is actually one of the things that I actually dream of - to spend Christmas in Baguio, surrounded by all the pine trees plus the cold weather! I also want to experience being near a fireplace as well! Kulang na lang snow :) Glad you enjoyed your stay in Baguio. :)

    1. True! Everything was almost perfect except for the traffic. :) Thanks!

  2. How long did it take you to reach baguio from manila? 6-7hours? Hmm...mukhang mahirap pala magbakasyon sa baguio during christmas season


Thanks for the visit :)
Leave me something and I might just love you forever ♥
