In this day and age marriages often do not last that long, so I am proud to say that my parents are still happily married. They’ve made it this far, but not without trial and error. Commitment is hard work as my parents would always tell us.
We went to Baguio for another great visit and to celebrate another momentous event – our parents’ 35th Wedding anniversary and renewal of vows. Baguio is where we spent most of our weekends for two beautiful years and I just couldn’t even begin to describe it.
Horses, boat ride, beautiful flowers and delish food were only some of the things that we enjoyed. The flow of traffic along Session road 2 was overwhelming…but the trip was still enjoyable.
We spent three days at Pages Hall (Teachers Camp) along with 30+ adults. If you’re going to Baguio in large group, staying at a transient house like Pages Hall will save you money. We only paid Php 187.00 per head (this is on a daily basis) compared to P1,500 to P5,000 per night in a hotel. The rooms were clean as well as the restrooms. I guess the only bad thing is that we shared the restrooms with the other guests. For Php 187.00/night don’t expect any additional freebies…pillows and comforters will be provided though. You can also order food from the care takers (prices range from P60.00 – P70.00 depending on their menu). As for me and my husband, we opted to eat at nearby Cafeterias and restaurants.
Day two, we went to Burnham Park to visit some Ukay-ukay stores but we were surprised with the prices! The locals told us that if we wanted to score some cheap goods, we should go back at around 9PM. Thinking that parking may be an issue during that time – we just stayed at Pages Hall to watch movies while enjoying a hot cup of coffee.
Baguio will always be special to me. I will never get tired of visiting this beautiful City…and to my parents, I am and I will always be proud of you.
