I’m having such an amazing time in Baguio right now! I’m here to have my passport renewal in DFA SM Baguio, scheduled at 10AM. Although my company is so gracious by allowing passport renewal to be filed as Official Business, this is still at my personal expense. So I decided to make the most out of it and so far, everything’s going according to plan and more! That’s the vanilla ice cream on top of the mango crepe (I’m munching some right now in the cafe inside Kamiseta Hotel) – the “and more”! Don’t you just like being surprised? By having your expectations exceeded, especially?
I didn’t expect myself to have missed Baguio so much. I was here and my family for Panagbenga 4 years ago and this is my fifth time in Baguio already but I’m still seeing and experiencing new things. Maybe because every trip and every moment no matter how routinary, is actually unique. We are a different person at different moments in our life anyway. For me, this morning is hard to take for granted. Praise God for this morning as I didn’t expect this to be sweet!
For one, right at this moment, I’m in a very chic cafe Vanilla Cafe inside Kamiseta Hotel. Yup, this is a hotel owned by the same clothing company I happen to to splurge on during those few moments I wanted to shop for clothes. I can recognize the wallpaper and upholstery designed with the cloth they make their clothes from. For one, I unintentionally wore a Kamiseta-brand blouse while inside this cafe.
I adore the interiors and their menu. Their wifi is strong, too. I was the first customer for the day arriving here at just a little past 7AM. I asked to be seated on the best seat and I was ushered here but I think all spots are created beautifully equal. Too bad taking pictures had always been my weakness but this cafe is so Instagram-worthy from any angle. The chandeliers are love! And the customer service is excellent, too. And oh, they’re playing Come On Get High and Say You Won’t Let go right now! I just died!
Beautiful places ignites artistry in people. I do not regret taking my laptop with me to blog. I have a lot to tell and at the same time there are beautiful moments to savor. My heart’s torn between telling and feeling which is a very good confusion to endure.
For frequent goers to Baguio, you might want to check out this relatively new nook. I hated leaving this place early but I will be back, that’s for sure. Not alone, I hope.
