i love baguio

Image hosting by Photobucket

At long last, I get to post about our Baguio extravaganza! The cool breeze and the fresh pine air was absolutely refreshing. Exactly what I needed to the knots of stress out of my body. I swear, there's something about the cool climate that makes eating more enjoyable. And of course, there's ukay-ukay. The haven for cheap vintage finds and great deals. It was just... mind-blowing. So much so that I spent well over 3,000 Php! And they were all just gorgeous. Can I just be a professional ukay-er?

I so wanna go back and bring Chips. I sure hope he can stand this kind of shopping. Hehe. For all of you planning to go, and who love ukay, here are the two must-go spots (at least in my book):

    This reminds me of my female colleagues in Marketing who would go to Baguio one weekend just to buy stuff from ukay-ukay. Ladies!

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
