Lake Danum

4.0 Stars
Tourist Attraction

If kiltepan peak is for witnessing the sunrise , lake danum naman is for sunset. We went here after our spelunking experience in Sumaguing Cave and we were not prepared of how cold the wind here pag pagabi na. I only brought with me super nipis na scarf hahaha. I was wearing t-shirt pa naman since galing kami sa Cave.

We spent a few minutes at the lake (be careful lang with your steps kasi madaming "landmines" ng horse ka na pwedeng matapakan) for some picture taking then we proceed to the place where you can see the sunset. There were some people pero the place is not as overcrowded as kiltepan naman. Wala nga lang kaming magandang pwesto kasi medyo late na kami dumating. Too bad lang hindi namin nawitness yung sunset (and even the sunrise huhuhu) kasi mahamog na nung gabi. Maybe some other time. Hopefully when we go back here.

We forgot to try the yogurt that's being sold here for some reasonable price kasi we were really tired and exhausted of all the trekking and spelunking that we did and no one wants to get off the car to buy haha sayang.

Cabalen

5.0 Stars

We celebrated father's day here at Cabalen. My mom didn't like the idea at first kasi first time niya to try buffet at baka hindi daw niya masulit, or baka hindi masarap ang foods, or baka malaki magastos namin haha. but when we started eating naka ilang plato at balik ang mudra mo! Hahaha! Anyways price per person here is 298.00 pesos + vat and no service charge medyo maliit lang naman ata yung vat so i think nasa 320.00 lang ata yung binayaran namin each.

Foods were okay. Everything is filipino foods. What my mom likes the most were yung dishes na hindi niya madalas niluluto. Everything that she always cooks sinasabi niyang mas masarap daw ang luto niya hahahaha (pero totoo naman kasi) there's a dessert area you can make your own halo-halo (syempre classic pinoy dessert yun) and there's also a chocolate fountain there if you don't like halo-halo.

Staffs were friendly and attentive to our requests. The place is not overcrowded even though peak time na when we ate there. There's a time limit of two hours but hindi ka aabutin ng two hours kasi mabubusog ka na agad.

My family enjoyed our dining experience here. So We will definitely come back.

Sbarro

Pizza

I think the one that we had was on promo can't find nga lang yung promo na yun (can't remember na rin kasi the last time that i ate here) but i think it's still ongoing. so we tried their Chicago white deep dish and it's the only dish na inoorder ko palagi whenever i eat here at sbarro. Medyo pricey yung isang slice almost 200.00 pesos na rin if I remember it correctly but sulit sya kasi mabubusog ka na.

Haven't tried eating sa mismong store kasi langing for take out minsan binabaon ko kasi papasok kapag graveyard shift ako. Chicago white deep dish is Not like yung other dish na hindi na masarap kapag hindi na mainit.

Also tried baked ziti before, kind of like baked mac pero you can choose kung anong sauce ang ipapalagay mo. I have a thing for white sauce kaya yun yung lagi kong pinipili. Pero seriously mas masarap kasi talaga pag white sauce. But if pagsasabayin mo sila ng chicago white Deep Dish magiging nakakaumay na siya so if you like you can choose red sauce nalang.

Don't be fooled with the sizes ng pizza nila kasi yung isang slice is huge na

Greenwich

5.0 Stars
Pizza

One of the reason kung bakit nagtatabaan ang mga in a relationship. For this date night we tried Greenwich (one of my favorite fastfood restaurant in the metro) at waltermart and for less than 500 pesos we were able to satisfy our hunger and cravings for lasagna which has a special place in my heart and also my tummy hehe.

We ordered two sets of overloaded supreme meal 1 which consist of solo Hawaiian overload pizza, lasagna supreme and two pieces of wacky wings and drinks for 208.00 pesos each. We were almost not able to finish all the foods kasi super mabigat na sa tiyan yung lasagna pa lang tapos may pizza and chicken pang kasama but wings part lang yung chicken kaya hindi yun counted haha. Their lasagna might have small serving but still, it will always be satisfying. I was able to try their berry slush on their branch in front of manila cathedral (which i think is the best branch that I've ever been to) and it was good too.

The establishment is cozy and not overcrowded kahit na peak hours even though limited lang yung seat capacity.

King Chef Dimsum Kitchen

Ordered Wanton Noodles (Php 170.00), Porkchop Noodles (Php 200.00), Beancurd Roll (Php 110.00), Cold Milk Tea (Php 90.00), and Four Season Juice (Php 90.00) di kasi kami gutom haha.

Anyways servings were huge (as in nakakabusog agad yung tea palang nila which is unlimited ata) we asked the staffs na ibalot nalang yung ibang natira namin kasi hindi na namin kering kainin.

Staffs were attentive and polite kaya plus points. They have restroom sa loob that you can use just in case you needed one. (It's clean by the way ha) sa labas kami nakapwesto so not sure if malaki yung space ng restaurant sa loob. Pero madami silang customers infairness.

noodles taste good. Di namin natry yung ibang dimsum nila but i think they have a promo not sure lang kung what time and day available pero nung nagpunta kami hindi na namin naabutan since dinner time na kami nakarating. Second time to try din beancurd roll and same lang sa taste ng causeway yung beancurd nila. Favorite ko talaga yun as in.

Will try to go back here during promo hours para matry yung ibang dimsum nila which looks good.

Victoria Bakery

This is the best cream puff that I've ever tasted in my entire 24 years here on earth charot. Pero seryoso super sarap niya talaga.

My sister had her internship for 6 months in baguio so when we went back there on Baguio she told us about this bakery na lagi niyang binibilan ng cinnamon bread kasi sarap na sarap sya (pero di ako mahilig sa cinnamon kaya di ko siya gets) then nung nasa counter na kami yung sinundan nya na student nag order ng cream puff na regular. So nacurious kami kaya nagtry kami mag order ng 3pcs lang para tikman sana. Then dumiretso na kami sa terminal after para antayin yung 8:30pm na trip pabalik ng manila. Dahil 6pm palang that time kinain muna namin yung cream puffs na binili namin tas dun nagsimula ang lahat hahaha

1 pc is worth 15 pesos. Binalikan namin yung bakery halaaaa bumili kamk ng 15 pcs. Para iuwi dito sa manila as pasalubong pero pagdating namin dito kami din naman yung nakaubos hahaha basta promise super sarap nya yung lasa niya parang leche flan na may yema na may pastillas na may custard basta masarap yung laman sa loob. Di ko pa natry yung ibang flavors pero mukhang masarap din. Kasi regular cream puff pa nga lang winner na eh.

Sumaguing Cave

We went to Sumaguing Cave after our eco valley - hanging coffins tour. Tour guide is 1000php for 6-9 person. I don’t have any picture aside from this that i got from my friend because i’m scared that i will scratch the lens of my camera. Which is a good idea because there are also parts where you will have to dip into the water. I just brought with me my action cam inside and it is inside an underwater case so it was safe.

Be ready to get dirty here. It was one of those experience that i will treasure in my life. My first spelunking experience. The pathway was very slippery and dangerous. There are lots of batpoops inside which you will not have a choice but to touch in some part because if you don’t, you might slipped and die (OA talaga ako. Pero seryosoooo) huhuuuuu i was so scared. As for me, i think it would be much better if you do not bring anything because there are paths that you will need your two hands to hold unto.

Very cold din inside i remember seeing our body na naglalabas na ng usok. (Kaluluwa na ata namin yun dahil sa ginaw at takot hahaha)

some part of the cave ay crowded na rin because of the large amount of tourist na gusto din naman itry yung spelunking experience here. May part na pinatuntong kami ni kuya guide sa balikat nya makaakyat lang sa isang mataas na stone pabalik since walang ibang daan. Naaawa ako kay kuya kasi ang bigat naming lahat tas isa isa niya kaming pinatuntong sa balikat nya paakyat. (Yes parang yung sa cheerdance)

i don't remember na uminom ako ng water while inside the cave so I don't think kelangan pa magdala. Pero pwede din naman.

Isa to sa mga experience na kapag natapos mo malakas na loob mo magmayabang hahaha

The Hanging Coffins of Sagada

5.0 Stars

We arrived at exactly 7am and without knowing where to go and what to do first we decided to eat breakfast first and then we went to town center to register for the environmental fee which cost 35.00 pesos.

We had our first breakfast in Sagada at Sagada Brew.

After we had our breakfast and register tourism fee we decided to go first to our accomodation so we can leave our things there then we start our tour.

For our first tour, we choosec the eco valley – hanging coffins tour. The guide cost 200 for up to 10 persons.

This is a good warm-up especially if you are going to try Caving for your next tour. (Which is what we actually do after)

Be sure to bring water here and wear sunblock because even though the wind is cold here even in the afternoon the sun can still burn your skin. I thought nothing happened to my skin when i went here but i saw how different my skin looks when i got home.

After the 1 1/2 walk you can buy these wheat bread in the entrance for 10 pesos each to get you ready for the next tour. It was kind of ok. Maybe because it’s wheat.

Bomod-Ok Falls

This tour took us almost five hours i think (back and forth) but it was the most scenic trek that i ever had. Everything that we saw is beautiful. This has been my favorite part of our trip here. Yes it was a long 4hrs walk (1 hour picture taking hehe charot), with mostly climbing up and down the stairs, but the view is worth it. I’m loving Sagada more and more because of the view.

The water in the falls was very cold and refreshing. But it was too cold for me that’s why i decided not to swim.

Be sure to put sunblock and bring lots of water (if you possible, don't drink while going to the falls) especially if you are on your way back because it was more hard to climb the stairs than to go down.

The way going back was more tiring because we have to climb again those 8000 steps that we climb down. (Our guide told us that it was 8000 steps one way)

There was a rest area and in there they sell softdrinks and the best lumpiang gulay that i’ve ever tasted. (I’m not sure if i’m just tired and hungry or what) Try to buy here. 20 pesos snacks won’t hurt you. Plus, you get to help the people there also.

Kiltepan Peak

5.0 Stars

A thousand characters can't explain how i felt when i saw in person the beauty of the sea of clouds on Kiltepan Peak in Sagada.

We almost wasn't able to witness this breathtaking creation but I'm so glad that we found a way because I cannot imagine myself going home without witnessing this view.

The only problem that i saw there was the lack of discipline of the other tourist. There are stores there where you can buy hot coffee or chocolate, or something to eat for breakfast but other tourist just leave their garbage anywhere which is sad. I hope everyone will be a responsible traveller when they go to other places.

We stayed until eight in the morning to fully see the sea of clouds. We were not fortunate enough to witness the sunrise (i heard some took them 3 tries before seeing the sunrise at kiltepan) but still, the view is beautiful.

We went to buy vegetables on sagada's Saturday market after then ate late breakfast and early lunch at masferre, then trek to the bomod-ok falls, ate late lunch and early dinner at Salt & Pepper then we went back to our inn to wash ourselves then rest.
