Mulan in Baguio

Why "Mulan in Baguio? Kasi "look at me, you may think you see who I really am.. But you'll never know me." Hahaha, charot!"Who is that girl I see staring straight back at me? Why is my.." Wait for it..  "reflection someone I don't know?" Hahaha. There you go, the magic word is reflection. Hahaha. Daming paandar, yun lang pala! Aminin, kinanta mo rin. Haha. 

So! Some people might say that it's so jologs na to stay in SM Baguio, like ugh, first time mo sa SM? But hey, the view here is worth all the nega comments. Alam namin conyo kayo koya, ate. Haha. Char! So, when I was there, syempre (1) photo op; (2) tulala mode; (3) emote; and (4) reflect. I was lost in the beauty of what's in front of me. I love watching the sunset eh. Sometimes I wish someone would look at me the way I look at the sky - mesmerized and feeling at ease. Charrrrr. 

I haven't gotten off this emotional roller coaster ride, that's why my previous posts are puro hugot lines and all. I kinda just amuse myself most of the time to keep sane, ang jejemon ko kasi. Haha. But anyway, to make this post worth the read, I've compiled some of my current favorite quotes. Got them from the Facebook pages I assume you also follow, see: The Artidote & Berlin-artparasites. 

(continuation..sing with me) "Must there be a secret me I'm forced to hide? Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time.. When will my reflection show who I am inside?"

“You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.” -How I Met Your Mother
Say it before you run out of time. Say it before it’s too late. Say what you’re feeling. Waiting is a mistake. - The Artidote 


"You think you’ve seen her naked because she took her clothes off? Tell me about her dreams. Tell me what breaks her heart. What is she passionate about, and what makes her cry? Tell me about her childhood. Better yet, tell me one story about her that you’re not in. You’ve seen her skin, and you’ve touched her body. But you still know as much about her as a book you once found, but never got around to opening." —Dominic Matthew Jackson


"Make damn sure what you’re waiting for is worth the fucking wait." —William Chapman


"Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars
and think of the galaxies inside my
heart, and truly wonder if anyone will
ever want to make sense of all that
I am." —Christopher Poindexter

"It’s easy to love someone when they’re happy. What’s hard is loving someone when they’re crying on the bathroom floor at 2am because everything came crashing down at once." —Emma Stewart
"Do you ever just smell an old perfume, or hear an old song, or pass an old hangout spot and kinda break inside for a couple minutes?" —Unknown
"People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this." —Stacey Jean Speer
"Life is too sweet and too short to express our affection with just our thumbs. Touch is meant for more than a keyboard."― Kristin Armstrong
"Maybe one day we’ll find that place, where you and I could be together. And we’ll catch our dreams within the waves of change. So smile for me one last time, and believe that we'll meet again. Until then, I'll be missing you." -R.M. Drake

Baguio City Day 2: Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham

On our second day in Baguio, we were more than awake and ready to meet friends and discover new places. Good thing we're near all the good spots in the City. We stayed in Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham. I fell in love the moment I stepped out of the cab and saw how aesthetically pleasing it was! We were welcomed by equally pleasing staff and was directed to our room without hassle. Boy was I so thrilled to see the comfy beds and the thick layer of comforters! I wanted to curl up in bed and master the art of "staycation." It was so cold in Baguio that time!

Guests' testimonials display
We loved looking at the framed drawings and handwritten testimonials of the previous hotel guests. You know you're staying in a good hotel when you see how they highly value customer experience and feedback. We were supposed to leave our handwritten notes and my drawing as well, but I forgot! Ulyanin!

Unli coffee - coffee station for the caffeine-deprived haha
I find this coffee station super cute! I'm not usually a big fan of wooden kitchen utensil but, hey, look! So much Baguio feels. You can make your own coffee any time and stay in the lobby where there's excellent WiFi connection. Microtel Baguio is currently upgrading some rooms for more pleasurable stay, literally taking in the saying "there's always room for improvement." Haha! *Taps my back for this corny joke*

Comfy beds
During the day, we went to SM Baguio, duh?! For ultimate Baguio experience hahaha! Nah, but on a serious note, the popular mall is a walking distance from Microtel. It's so convenient for tourists like me and for seniors. In fact, Victory Liner Bus Terminal is also just a stone's throw away from Microtel. I say, they already win with their location! I also highly recommend Microtel Baguio for family trips especially when you have small children with you. I'm sure they'll enjoy the buffet breakfast with cereal selection, which I also had because I'm still a kid by heart, chos! Haha! But no seriously, Ate Mica and I were so looking forward to the breakfast buffet served at the connecting restaurant - Te Quiero Tapas Bar & Restaurant. Now you know we're all in for food haha! I specially loved the salad bar (feeling vegetarian) and the egg station with a chef preparing fresh eggs to your liking.

Nilalamig si Tita! Hahaha
And did I mention how pretty Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Baguio looked not only from the inside? I'm so digging it, perfect for photo ops, which we had anyway. Haha! Check out my Facebook Page and Instagram for more photos and videos. You can also watch my short virtual tour below: 


Thank you for the sulit stay, #MicrotelPH #MicrotelBaguio !
