I woke up the following morning freezing to death. My toe socks and fleece blanket were of no help to beat the biting cold breeze of Baguio. So I went out to go on a steep short walk to release some heat… to perspire 🙂 …. and these beautiful skies greeted me that one fine morning.
For some reason, these clouds and view reminded me of those ‘dream’ house & lots for sale in brochures. And so I tried to re-create it. 🙂
They say it’s much cozier at night but I prefer to see it first in daylight so at least I could see what I am eating.
However, I was too hungry and forgot to take a decent photo of what we ate.
The bagnet was not as yummy as I thought it would be. The brown rice doesn’t appear to brown but more of purple. Though I liked the Padas Bagoong, I liked it so much until my lips turned a little swollen and itchy. 🙂
Other than bagnet we had the following:
- Sinigang na Malaga with Shrimps > simply put “Sinigang na Hipon”
- Pinikpikan > which appears to be native chicken
- Rizal Tsokolate-e > not as thick and rich as I’ve expected but fair enough
All in all, it wasn’t really a bad experience. It wasn’t since I get to eat without shelling out a single centavo. 🙂 But I’m looking forward to have one of those colorful salads and rich champorado…. and probably nail their best main course. Suggestions, anyone?
Excited, I can’t wait to get there. Not that I’m a devotee nor religious, I was just really looking forward to tupig.
And my senses didn’t fail me, I can smell burnt banana leaves everywhere with an assortment of Pangasinan native delicacies, fruits and of course religious articles.
And that concludes my overnight trip to Baguio-Pangasinan… and of the life of this little bird on our way to SCTEX. 😦
