Holy week has come and gone by so quickly.
My mother decided that this year we are going out of town and spend some quality family time. At first I thought it was a bad idea due to the fact that she wanted to go to Baguio. It is called Summer Capital of the Philippines for a good reason, in the end she won and we went on a 4 hours journey to said place.
When we arrived at our destination we had brunch and settled in at our hotel room. We were basically too tired to roam around the area.
The next day started with a nice walk to a restaurant that serves breakfast. It was a simple meal at a simple cafe. It was also a healthy option for the family. The restaurant is called Everything Nice and is located at the Camp John Hay Technohub vicinity. What I like the most about their rice meals is that they serve red rice instead of regular white rice. 🙂
A must try for tea lovers is their Lemongrass tea but I suggest drinking it hot.
After that hearty breakfast we proceeded back to our hotel room and got ready. We went to the Lourdes Grotto. It is a compulsory activity when we visit the city.
I noticed a lot of young people taking selfies and photos.
I am not against such activity but too much of something isn’t really pleasing anymore. Specially in a place such as that.
After our visit we decided to go to Mines View Par but the traffic towards it was unbearable and we had to turn back and go straight to St. Joseph’s Parish because we were going to attend mass there.
The next few days were a blur for me and I can only say that the trip was relaxing and a great start for me because it is summer. 🙂
I still wish we stayed at home for the holy week because of the activities that was in store at our small town but I was happy to spend those days with my family.
So how was your holy week?
I’m sorry this is a short post. I have been thinking of writing another story but I have no time on my hands to do so. I promise to share it to you as soon as I finish writing any.
I miss scribbling.
