Weekend Story: A Baguio Holiday

After several years, the hubby and I have finally gone back to Baguio. This time around, my sister Jodie tagged along with us. It was her first time to visit Baguio and it seemed she had a blast even if it was just an overnight trip. Availing a vacation package from Edel’s Travel & Tours (this was our joke the entire time we were in Baguio!), she enjoyed the City of Pines by checking out as much tourist spots as our time and energy could handle.

With the untimely death of the hubby’s grandmother, a trip to Bohol was imperative. The hubby and I went on leave for a few days so we could attend Lola Betty’s funeral service. We left for Tagbilaran City on Saturday and went back to Manila just yesterday.

Sumali kami ng aking mister sa mga padasal at nakihalubilo sa mga bisita. Noong Linggo ang huling gabi ng lamay at talaga namang napuyat kaming lahat. Pero ayos lang, para naman yun kay Lola Betty. Bagama’t tunay na nakakalungkot ang pagkawala nya, naniniwala naman kami na nasa mas maayos na kalagayan na sya ngayon.
