Ever since that Session Road closes one lane from motorists every Sunday, people are seen coming together to enjoy the freedom to stroll, and conduct different activities. A common idea exist among creative individuals of Baguio who find the street as a blackboard or a canvas to paint and sketch doodles, pictures, or any expressions on the pavement using colored chalks.
Meet, Fermar Andrada, a third year college student who spent his time this afternoon
finishing drawings of his favorite online game characters. The street served as his big canvas for him to release some stress and anxiety he felt before the examination week begins at the university he goes to.
Fermar did not mind people passing against him. He drew as mush as he could. People could see his passion while doodling on the solid round.
For this Mother’s Day … For those home-away-young-adult… Having the family here coming up at the cooler elevated region of the country, to visit and for them to chill…is simply an awesome moment.
The crisp air and moist weather are enough to bring the cold; and a family time is just what’s lacking to bring out the warmth. It is always best to have yourself ready where to give a sister, brother, or a mom and dad a nice experience when they came for a very short visit…
What the mother enjoyed. Partnering that decadent camote pie is a tarragon tea. Fresh tarragon leaves seeped in to tea on a mug of hot water… A must try!
Since when in Manila… fruits and vegetables are rarely fresh… A salad is just what completes the visitors’ taste buds and health buff cells… Arca’s Yard’ s famous oriental salad is a mixture of season fruits in a bed of lettuce! For sharing to the whole family. 🙂
This camote pie is a best seller which served less than a hunded a slice. Made with pure camote as the cake… Laid on a crust out of graham …a scoop of vanilla flavored ice cream perfectly matches the pie’s dense and rich sweet potato taste. Yummy!
Because its mother’s day… We dedicate this post to all moms out there… This is the first of our series of posts giving you short glimpses of what to look for an amazing dining and family moment when coming at the city of pines.
.. Happy Mothers day y’all mothers out there!!!🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷
Barung – Leaf blade and the Gigunting – Long grass knife; these are traditional Filipino blades. Forged in fire by hands of a true legend, a real master of blade arts, GM Yuli Romo (follow his story …).
These blades, lesser known in the Filipino culture dissect a long lived and long kept tradition of our fellow Filipinos from Cebu … in Camotes Islands particularly… The art of blade fighting, a practice of original Filipino settlers in the south hundreds of years ago.
Leaf blade. The “barong”. One of Master Yuli’s creation. Among the Tausug culture, crafting the traditional fighting blade is known.
The Master Yuli Romo is not only a legendary bladesmith, he is also a true blade fighter, an heir to an indigenous tradition of bloodline of warriors from a clan among Tausugs…

Too much to drink? No ride home? Or just being creative?
‘Cause why not? In this city where it is full of creative individuals, you can be also creative in your sleep. 🙂 Individuals taking a nap at the benches set up at Malcolm Square in Baguio City is not unusual. This place welcomes people from all sorts of background, artists and sleepers alike! :))
Found here are photos I took from the streets.To tell my story I have to tell it from the street, strictly street.

Re’sili’ence. I love this photo for its contrasting element. Red-hot chili peppers, natively known as “siling lauyo” is a staple among Filipino dining tales. (Nikon3100.f5/6.ISO400.1/2sec.)
