baguio june 2016 part two: burnham park x good shepherd

Posted on: August 22, 2016


next on our list was burnham park… i’ve passed by this park several times but haven’t really explored it, because i was more focused before on getting to more uncommon touristy spots in baguio and err… eating at new restaurants, haha.

the main attraction of the place was of course, the boat rides in the man-made lake found at the center of it. We got onto one and it was the shakiest thing i have ever been on, it was somewhat a terrifying experience, and i kept calm only because i was with friends.

on the other hand, the scenery looked kind of pretty, with little swan boats and trees in the background and of course, happy faces on the boats.


i wondered what would happen if our boat fell over though, they didn’t provide us life vests. but mostly, we were already drenched in the rain, i was thinking more of laundry costs, lol.


the following morning, i set up to do an errand that my dad asked me to do (i miss you, dad!), and i agreed to meet our group at good shepherd, famous for their peanut brittle, ube jams, and angel cookies. i love ube but i was more interested in the angel cookies… for some reason, bumabait ang taong pinagbibigyan ko nito, char.

the place is also picturesque, there were really pretty gardens and floors that have intricate designs… this is pertinent to me because i like to photograph where my shoes have been.

after buying our pasalubongs, we checked out of our hotel and went home. baguio will always have a place in my heart, it is a place where i created memories with friends and family and i will always go back since there will always be new things to see and new memories to create.

yun lang.
