Northern Experience


Me and my officemates are going for a Northern Luzon tour this week. We will be discovering Vigan, Laoag, Batac, Bangui, Pagudpud, Pangasinan, and Baguio. If any of you is a local from these areas or have played tourist to these places, please do share some tips on the nice places and must-try restaurants that we can go to. We are a group of nine and we’ll be traveling via a private van borrowed from our company (thank you very much!) so my friends have been pressuring me to pack light for this four-day trip. I have been reassessing the clothes I’m going to bring because Baguio alone needs thick clothing so my head is whirling right now on which is which.

By the way, sorry if my fly is half way down in the photos. Hahaha Running late for work again.

Happy manic Monday everyone!

I've never tried shopping in thrift stores before and it seems interesting to try it sometime soon. Can you suggest some thrift stores here in the Metro? :) Thanks! Love your outfit, btw. ;)

I love your outfit! So cool and comfy. Nice belt. I've been to Vigan, Laoag and Batac, so far I can say in Batac, it's Marcos dead body, it's open for public. You should go to Calle Crisologo in Vigan. It's more like the Spanish era houses. Very lovely. In Laoag, you should go to Baluarte. In Pagudpud, visit the Banguid Wind Mills. That's what I can think for now.

oh i didn't notice the fly til you mentioned no worries! Can't wait to see what photos you would take on your trips but am absolutely sure they're gonna be just as fabulous. Here in Baguio, well go for Cafe by the ruins and order their bagnet. My fave though is a Mongolian resto, O Mai Khan..they have the most scrumptious ribs (Conqueror's meal) and the yummiest cheesecakes! if you need more info just hit me up anytime.

your blazer looks asbolutely chic! the blue is super cute. if you pass by pangasinan, try tasting tupig, it's a coconut pudding wrapped in banana leaf then grilled :) for baguio, go to camp john hay for the manor, some shopping and the homiest starbucks. if u need any help exploring pangasinan, drop me a line!
