Ngong Ping - Part 1

After Checking in at Dragon Hostel (which I highly recommend because of its location, price and accessibility. You just have to make sure you're not claustrophobic coz you might panic at the size of the room and most especially the comfort room. Hehe. =P)... first stop was Ngong Ping.

How to get there? From MongKok Train station. Go on the Tsuen Wan Line (Red) up to Lai King. Then transfer to the Tung Ching Line (Orange) to go all the way to Tung Chung. You'll even pass the Disney train stop, Sunny Bay. :)

So everyone... welcome to Tung Chung station.

We'll be going right away to Ngong Ping.

But before that, for sure you'll be tempted to shop coz you'll pass by.... CITYGATE!

The ultimate outlet store haven. Everything's on sale. 60% and above discounts for designer brands. Giordana pants can be bought for P600+ a piece, and I even saw original Crocs being sold for P700 only. Niiiiice! There were a lot of sport stores too like Nike, Adidas etc etc.

Anyway.. back to NgongPing. Hehehe. So we excitedly went straight to the ticket station and saw a very nice staircase with "Welcome" greeting from different languages...

We had to choose between The Journey of Enlightenment Package and NgongPing Cable Car Experience - Roundtrip... and we decided to take the roundtrip cable car experience and have our own enlightenment journey. :) The package was a bit expensive anyways...

The Journey of Enlightenmant package (HKD$159)
-Roundtrip NgongPing Cable Car Journey
-Entry to Walking with Buddha
-Monkey's Tale Theatre attractions

Roundtrip Cable Car costs HKD$96

To be continued.... (expect lots of senseless posings.. haha!)

I'm out.

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…
