The Fast & Furious Baguio Trip

Joko nailed the Baguio-LU trip description in her latest FB note, Amazing and Bitin! True, true! Last weekend was fantastic in different levels and I wish me and the go-go friends can do it again soon!

*****

Amazing: The energy I possessed to pack my things and get to the meeting place Shell-Emerald on time when I only had 8 hours of sleep—accumulated in 3 days. Didn’t even get to sleep much in the trip, maybe because I had too much fun with Kass, Kwe, Maia, Ejay and Daryl in NLEX teasing Richard about overtaking cars, trucks, and jeeps.

Bitin: After dropping our things off in Bauang (where Kwe’s ancestral house is/our home for 2 days), Maia and the boys went to San Juan for the MSA Competition (Ejay competed) while Kwe, Kass, and I went to Baguio to reunite with the LLs Joko and Carla who got there a day ahead. Because there were no aircon buses available and we didn’t want to keep the LLs (Lesbian Lovers) waiting, we decided to take the hataw bus instead. Gutom na gutom na daw kasi si Joko kahit na lumalantak naman ng pretzels habang nagrereklamo na

Gutom na gutom na daw kasi si Joko kahit na lumalantak naman ng pretzels habang nagrereklamo na gutom na gutom na siya. Hehe. Oh and a hataw bus is a bus na walang aircon. Aircool. Humahataw sa daan, so pray for dear life!

lunch @ Cafe by the Ruins * boat ride with the go-go girls

Amazing: We proved that there really is a God because we made it to Baguio alive despite the extreme hatawness of the hatawbus driver. Following Carlo “The Baguio Authority” Errazo’s itinerary, us girls had our brunch in Café by the Ruins. Mmmmmm bacon, daing, French toast, eggs and eggs and eggs, fresh fruit shakes, and probably the best panna cotta I’ve ever tasted. They forced me to order the Spanish omelet with foccacia by the way. Hehe.

Bitin: We went to Rizal Park, Burnham Park, and Central Market after for the boat ride (na nagmistulang kami ang tourist attraction dahil ang tindi naming makatili at makasigaw), belts and wallets shopping (got me a shiny red balloon… made me darn easy to find in the crowd! :P), and hoarding of Mikasan Chocoflakes, Tamtanco Lengua de Gato (better than Good Shepherd’s, so glad I listened to CB!), and Patience Bugnay. Didn’t get to go to the other spots we planned on visiting because we were all itching to be in LU already. And and and, the ukay-ukay sucked. Presyong Maynila na. So that’s one item forever crossed out from my Baguio list.

feeling Ang TV kids * shiny ref balooon

Amazing: Roadtrip to LU was funfunfun because Jake’s so pogi, even if Kwe wants to turn him into blackgirlcar by attempting to rename him Shaniqua. Wtf? Hehe. Funfunfun 1 ½ hours of chocolate mints, kulitan, and 90’s music by DJ Carla na kinarir talaga ang dancesteps ng The Sign, Always, at Tootsie Roll!

Bitin: Because the surfer girls couldn’t wait to get stoked, we went straight to San Juan. Uh no no, we went to Mc Do first for merienda. This is where Carla and I realized na mag-LL rin ang mga bituka namin. Lamon kung lamon. Chicken, spaghetti, sundae, fries… parang hindi kami nabusog sa Baguio. So what’s bitin about this? Kasi after eating, masama pa loob namin and we were thinking of what to eat next and we were already wishing it was dinner already! Gluttony rocks! But not as much as my friends rock. Haha, senti! :p

Amazing and Bitin: Check out the second part of my 1st ever road trip with my Go-Go Friends in the next entry.
