Christmas In Baguio

I thought hubby and I will celebrate Christmas just the two of us but I was wrong. A day before Christmas, we were invited by Jhun to go with them to Baguio. We grabbed the opportunity because it's been a while since we went there. The last time we've been there was six months ago. So off we went after lunch with my 2 nephews and their dad with us riding their van. Rose had to follow later because she was busy in her shop. While we were on the way, the van was acting up so Jhun stopped and put some water in it thinking it just overheated. Then when we were in Camp 6 just passed the lion landmark, the van stopped running and Jhun found out that it run out of gas. The fuel indicator of the van was not accurate at all.

Jhun had to ride with some people riding their truck to go buy some gas in the nearest gas station and while we were waiting, my nephews, hubby and I took some pics. The view in Kennon road is awesome especially with the mountains and pine trees at the background.

  


                                Hubby was trying to direct the traffic, lol!
After around 15 minutes, Jhun came back with the gas he bought and the van was up and running again.It was already dark when we reached Baguio. We passed by Burnham Park and a bunch of people were there. I didn't even attempt to go there with hubby because he don't like crowded places. We arrived at Camp Allen and it was so nice to see our ninong George, Glo and Mimi. We consider these people our family in Baguio. They are so accommodating and very hospitable. They make us feel so welcome and at home. Rose arrived later with Jhun who picked her up in the bus station.

On Christmas eve, at 12 midnight, we all gathered around the table. Jhun said the blessing and then we ate the foods that they prepared for our Noche Buena. We had pancit palabok and a square cake from Tea House. So yummy! There was 2 boxes of fried chicken from Chow King and a roll cake from Goldilocks. Glo made her delicious macaroni salad. For drinks, there were C2 bottles for all of us and there as also a bottle of grape wine.

  


After eating, we opened the gifts. Hubby and I got some gifts from Glo, from Jhun and Rose and a cash gift from ninong George. My husband gave his gift to me in cash worth 5k for my shopping a few days before Christmas. He was generous to me this time. He told me not to buy for him anything because he don't need anything so I obeyed, lol! On Christmas day, we went to SM Baguio to buy some groceries. My, that mall was so crowded. We had to fall in line just to get in. Hubby almost backed out but I told him just go with the crowd.

While inside the mall, hubby and I went picture taking in front of the Christmas tree and decors.



So we bought some fresh organic veggies, hubby's freshly grounded barako coffee and a lot more. We went back home in the lowland at night but before we headed home, Glo ordered a couple of pizzas for special delivery. They were so yummy to the tummy! Hubby's craving for pizza was satisfied.

So, how was the temperature? We used to go there like every year when I was in Manila.

I'd say it's always nice to see family and friends celebrating with a table full of great food. I guess you are going to miss that! :)

as a tradition we spend new year and Christmas just in our place, maybe we need to try celebrating it also somewhere else like there in Baguio next time :)
