Celebrating Mother's Day in Manaoag and Baguio City

Burnharm Park. Baguio City

Travel period: May 14-15, 2017

Mom, cams and I decided to celebrate mother's day in Baguio City. It was my mom's bucket list to visit Baguio but every time we plan it every December it was a fail. One reason is, hotels/transient house are always fully booked by that month and I just don't want to spend my 13th month pay hahahah.

My dad is not there because he have to keep an eye with our family business. April and Kuya is also not there because of busy work schedule.

Day 1:
We leave in manila 12 midnight via five star bus in pasay and attended the first mass in Manaoag church.

Plaza at 3am

Manaoag church

Tips: free holy water beside this area.

After church, we had our quick breakfast and bought some souvenir. Then just beside the plaza we ride the UV express van to Baguio for only Php 90.00 per head. I want my mom to be comfortable staying in Baguio then I decided to booked a room with 2 double bed in Golden Pine Hotel.

A letter and flowers for our beloved Mom :)

First activity, ride a boat in burnham park.
Php 100.00 rent
After this activity my mom get dizzy maybe because of  lack of sleep. Got back at hotel and power nap for 1 and half hour then lunch at The Good Taste.

The 3 of as at The Good taste :)
Good taste restaurant is just 2-3 minutes walk in the hotel. The place is big and perfect for family/big numbers of groups, food is good, big servings and cheap. Before we went to the restaurant, mom is not in the mood to continue the outdoor activities she feel sick and dizzy, then we decided to  just let mom, me and cams rest after we had lunch in the resto, good thing it was raining in that afternoon and we just the stayed in hotel. (still not bad)
