MARCH me to success

February was a tough month..but i guess March is a tougher one. I had a lot of plans to do that is all rumbled in my mind, which one to start with first. Hmmm, it does include business and travel plans, yeah. I do love to have maybe a shop or a restaurant i can manage but before getting to the main idea i need to consider the little details like the location, the supplies, etc. And oh well, i love to travel, go places here, there and everywhere so i really need to be more productive so i can enjoy life the way i wanted to..haha pretty hard yeah..believe me.

I do hope sweet success will be there waiting for me at the end after all the hardships and the pain ive been through...

So thats Baguio!

Since after i graduated i wanted to go to Baguio but due to some reasons it was always postponed. This 2011, is a different year coz this year i want my plans to get done. Atleast someone told me that if i wanted something i must pursue to have it. That i must believe and make it happen. So i did.

I was so excited, It was my first trip to Baguio. i was filled with unexplained happiness. After that bumpy roads ive been through, after the efforts unappreciated, after being left behind i find my heart at peace even just for a while. Too much drama haha.

Anyway, the moment i arrived Baguio, i can barely walk, shivering from cold its like i stepped into a freezer hahaha. We waited about 20mins for my best friend to contact her cousin, their place is on top of the hill and its so damn cold there.  I was amused at the driver how he managed to drive into the up and down road curves. The view was fantastic. If i had wings, i would dive and fly hahaha, funny thought.

On our first day we watched the street parade, stroll at the Burnham Park, bought bonnets for the three of us. We ate kwek-kwek on stick and kalamay. The cold weather is really nice, i so love it. The sun was up but the wind is still cold. We went boating at Burnham. (100pesos for 30 mins/150pesos for 30 mins with rower) We choose the one with rower coz we dont know how to row the boat but we tried how just for experience, it was hard! 

Places we visited
  • Baguio Cathedral
  • Session Road
  • Public Market
  • Lourdes Grotto
  • Jollibee Baguio
  • SM Baguio

    The next day we wake up early to watch the Grand Float Parade. We were on the streets at 5am and patiently waited. The parade started at pass 8am and ended 10:30am. I so love the DUNKIN DONUTS FLOAT. The flowers are detailed and looks really fabulous. We saw Sam MIlby, Enchong Dee, Empoy and other Kapuso and Kapamilya stars which i do not recognize hahaha. There are 16 floats that joined the parade. Before the 2 floats arrive, there was quite a commotion coz the people thought the parade was finished so they started going down away from the side of the streets. The crowd control assigned to theit positions rushed to that area and it looked as though we were in Malacanang and the people are rallying hehehe.

    The crowd was huge.



     Places we visited:

    • Minesview
    • Wright Park
    • Good Shepherd
    • Botanical Garden
    • Pilak
    • The Mansion
    • pass thru Teacher's Camp

    Beauty Tip # 25: Face Mask for Acne


    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    3-4 drops of rose water

    Combine the ingredients.  Widely spread the mixture on the face and affected areas.  Let it settle for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with pure water.  If you have dry skin, then this is not the right one for you.

    Lemon has got Vitamin C, a necessary component for keeping skin healthy. Again, not for dry skin.

    EDSA @ 25

    Left early around 5:30am to go to my bestfriend's house at Batasan Hills then got home 8:30am. Me and my bestfriend is rushing coz i need to be at home before 9am because my nephew will go to school. Regardless of the info that it is EDSA Day which means no classes at all levels, we were rushing to go to my nephew's school, later did we realize when my mom called, she said: "wala nga palang pasok ngayon" Haha. But we were near the school so we just pass by the school and yea it was closed. Next plan was going to SM Marikina to buy a cake and smartbro plug-in kit. We're supposed to wait for my mom at the school's gate but then we agreed to go and wait for my mom at SM Taytay instead of Marikina. We were early around 9:40am so we wait at the parking until the mall opens. Then my mom i guess she was in a total rush she stil go to SM Marikinia instead of Taytay..whoa! another 30 mins to wait. We actually need to go home early because its my sister's birthday and we need to do some preparations. 

    So there, my mom arrived at SM Taytay around 12noon. We were in the supermarket when the staff announced that they are having technical problems with credit card transactions, duh  we need to wait. My mom go to the nearest BDO ATM, i got in the line for her and just called my mom when our turn is near. My mom withdrawed 10k and guess what, IT WAS DEBITED. GOSH! wattaday! We called a BDO Representative and reported it luckily, the supermarket's credit card transactions went okay already, saved by the bell! haha. Then here comes SMART, uber duper bagal ng service. It took 1 hour per person how was that?!! We inquired earlier and just got back to buy the plug-in kit and we waited almost 2 hours, i was so impatient and never cared at all blaming Smart's very slow service.

    We got home at 2pm and still rushing, we cooked pansit and chicken. My mom cooked sinukmani earlier before she left the house. We ate around 3:30pm and still rushing coz me and my bestfriends are going to Baguio in the evening.

    Instead of EDSA REVOLUTION, Id rather call this day, SM REVOLUTION. Its very memorable, really.
