HK Day 2 : Trams, Colors and Heights

We were finally there... The Peak!

First stop... the Tram of course.. Up up up we went. :)



When we got to the actual "peak", the first thing I noticed when we entered the store was how colorful everything seems to be.

The designs/paintings on the walls...


Colorful bracelets...


Colorful shoes...


And really neat and colorful hats..


We found really neat Buddha figurines too. I was afraid to touch and break them.


And guess what.. we found Bruce Lee (again!)


After all the picture posing again, we all realized we were really hungry already. So we scanned available restos.. and guess where we ended up...


We were frowning because we were really hungry already. =P Haha! What I love about Bubba Gump HongKong is that their staff were really cool and the diversity of the staff's lineage is amazing. We were ushered in by Chinese waitresses, orders where taken by an Indian waiter, survey form was given by a Pinoy waiter and the manager is American (I think). Really neat! Plus.. food serving was big. We were really full halfway through the meal. We should have splitted our orders into 2.





After lunch.. off we went to the Sky Terrace.

To savor the view...


It was foggy at first.. as seen in the picture above. But then it was past noon already so I guess that's why the weather cleared up and just like that.. it was sunny again. :)


CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.

I was a little scared while riding the tram because of my heights phobia. =) Before moving to Sky Terrace, I did the shopping part first. Haha. I bought a red Chinese bag and notebook (medyo terno sila) and keychains. When we were in Manila na and looking at the pix I realized that I should have bought at least a pair of those cute shoes.

We went there night time. The city lights were so alive then. http://witsandnuts.com/2009/02/16/where-the-city-lights-and-wind-are-alive/

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.


I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...


Exploring the resort..




I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)

The Bontoc Museum

I've been going home to Bontoc, Mountain Province for years already and most of the time we go there during Holy Week. I've always wanted to visit the Bontoc Museum but I end up not visiting it again and again because they're closed during Holy Week. So imagine my amazement and (hidden) excitement when I FINALLY got the chance to visit it. Arvic was with me too so it made it extra fun of course. Another first for both of us. :) Yay!

Welcome to....




The Bontoc Musuem!









Entrance fee costs P50.00 only. The musuem has two parts.. the inside musuem and the outside one. Picture taking in the 'inside museum' is not allowed. There you'll be taken back in time with glimpses of the early days of the tribes from Sagada, Ifugao and Bontoc. :) Yes.. there are even pictures of the headhunting days. There are lots of photos of the tribes before and after the colonization. Really interesting. :)



So off we go to the outside musuem. Here, there are actual Nipa huts wherein you can see…
