Winter Wonderland

The holiday season is never complete without our annual family trip to Baguio. Sadly, I did not get to go up with my family last year, so I was extra excited to go up this year. Not only because I missed last year, but because my two neighbors (Clara and Claudia Pettersen) were coming to join us since they've never been to Baguio before!!

This year was the first time I took the bus up to Baguio. We didn't have enough space in our car to fit everyone so we opted for the Victory Liner Deluxe Bus instead. It was actually not at all bad! Who could complain when you had a big enough reclinable chair, great aircon, and free wifi! 

We chose the bus with no stop overs, so we got up in about four and a half hours. Not that bad a time! I was actually surprised. 

Forgive me for trying the colour accent out. It's been quite awhile since I've had a Canon camera. Super loving my new gadget addition! :") 

My very close friend Bai, was in Baguio too so I made sure to meet up with her before she left that same night. We went to the Baguio Country Club's little 'Winter Wonderland' and took all the touristy photos you could possibly imagine! HAHA. 

Like this photo for example. Haha!

I was elated when I saw how the photos turned out. Can you believe that a point and shoot took this! For all you readers wondering, all the photos were taken with my new Canon G15. It definitely is my favourite gadget at the moment! It's quite compact for all its capabilities. If you own a DSLR like me, and you're thinking of getting something more compact, I highly suggest the Canon G15! :)

Outfit of the day:

Knitted Sweater - Red Tank Top - Jeans - Brown Boots: Forever 21

We didn't exactly do much on our first day but go take touristy photos, play ping-pong and eat at my favourite Japanese restaurant located at the club, Hamada. I always look forward to eating there because it feels so authentic with the tepanyaki table and everything. Nonetheless, it was a fun day spent with these lovelies! 

For a better glimpse on the whole trip, check out the video I made:
