Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo in Baguio City

I finally had a reunion date with my childhood BFF, Padma, whom I’ve not seen since the 1986 EDSA Revolution. I had to use a calculator to count – 24 years! We set the date at Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo, a newly opened fine dining restaurant at the top of Session Road, right below SM City.

Hill Station is in one of the oldest buildings in Baguio, Casa Vallejo. I’m trying to go back as far as I can remember, and back then (wasn’t too long ago, heh!), Casa Vallejo housed a dance studio, some government offices, as well as the hotel. I’m not too sure if the hotel was still operational then. (I was too young to care.) Sadly, through the years, the building was neglected.

So it was great news to me when I heard Casa Vallejo was being restored and relaunched as a boutique hotel, and that a wonderful restaurant would soon open there -Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo.

Okay, I’m lost now. Back to the reunion date… Continue reading Hill Station Restaurant Casa Vallejo in Baguio City

And we’re back!

This is yet another hello-blog entry. Pffffft.

~~~

My family is back in Manila after spending almost 2 weeks in Baguio City. It would have been the dream getaway for me and the kids – safe from Manila’s scorching heat and in the company of family that we love.

Except that everyone got sick, starting with Nate, who had to be hooked to an IV just so he won’t get dehyrated. Things went downhill from there. 🙁

As Nate was getting better, VGood started vomiting and pooping, along with a cousin or a tita. I too was not spared from the virus that rampaged our gastrointestinal systems. All in all, the virus downed at least nine family members. Nine!!! WTFH??!

So, instead of going to the wonderful places I promised my kids and myself to go to, I (along with the rest of the well adults) got caught up caring for the patients. We pretty much took turns taking care of each other. Oh well, that’s what family is for.

Aside from the getting sick part, there was also much family drama going on… But that’s best left out here. 😛 (No Chicka-minute for you hehe). Gaaaah.

Anyway, the good side of getting viral gastroenteritis? I lost 2 pounds or so! No need for adipex no prescription, with prescription, or whatever diet pills!

The vacation had its wonderful highlights though: 1)My sister and her kids came up and so it became like an impromptu family reunion; 2) Meeting up with my childhood BFF whom I’ve not seen for 24 years! 3) Being reunited with her at Hill Station!

More about those in later posts… including viral gastroenteritis, which, though a minor illness, could get pretty serious and surely annoying!

For now, I have work to do. Tata!
