Feeling High on Valentine’s Day 2017


OA at Mt. Kalugong for Valentine's Day 2017

No, I didn’t take drugs.πŸ˜‚ The only thing that gives me the feeling of being “high” is when “O” makes me feel so loved. I know he loves me, he’s put up with me for close to 17 years now, but I love that he still makes an effort to make my heart skip a beat and after all these years he’s still able to make me feel like a high schooler in love for the first time.😍

Valentine’s Day Gifts usually mean flowers, chocolates and a stuff toy, but that’s never been the case for me and “O”.

I’m allergic to flowers, so I really don’t appreciate bouquets all that much and “O” knows that, he gave me a single rose once or twice before for Valentine’s Day, but he knows better than to give me a bouquet.😁 Chocolates I love!🍫🍫🍫 What lady doesn’t right?😏 But I hate sharing, so he usually gives me a pack, just enough for me to eat before the children sees it.πŸ˜‚

We also don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 14th, it’s just too much of a hassle going to places without a reservation days prior and the traffic is also a killer, so yeah, no thanks. So, I was really surprised when he asked me out on the 14th, Valentine’s Day itself.😁

He made me walk though. Jerk.πŸ˜’

I had to walk up cause the scooter couldn’t hold both of us, it was too steep!

Just kidding.😁 I had no choice but to walk up the rest of the way because it was just too steep for Rousey (that’s the name of the scooter, cause it’s a Honda, Honda Rousey, get it?πŸ˜‚) to climb. It wasn’t a really long walk, but it was tiring because it was a steep climb and when you get to the top, it turns out that’s not the top after all. You need to climb a few more heights to be able to see the amazing view of the valley below.

Just one of the many breathtaking views from Mt. Kalugong… Freaking amazing!

“O” literally was able to take my breath away this Valentine’s Day, even without steak involved…😁

We had to climb over rocks to see the view. I know I’m not sporty, but I managed and I felt so damn proud of myself.😁 I wasn’t even wearing the proper shoes for rock climbing or hiking! I was wearing Uggs (because it was so damn cold!) for crying out loud, but I made it!😁

The view (and the climb going to where you can see the viewπŸ˜‚) from Mt. Kalugong β›° was breathtaking!😲 It was a beautiful sight even if it became cloudyπŸŒ₯ and foggy🌁 as the afternoon passed.

I’m sure you’ve heard weather reports about how cold it is in Baguio City right now, during that day, it was at 8℃. People who experience winter are probably laughing at us for feeling so cold, but we do live in a tropical country and 8 freaking degrees is freaking cold to us, so brrrr!β›„

It felt much much colder while we were on top of Mt. Kalugong, but the climb and the trek will make you feel warm for all of 5 seconds before you start feeling cold again, I didn’t even break into a sweat even though we walked a lot and we climbed a lot.😁 It was just so darn cold!β›„

It was sunny but it was so freaking cold.β›„
Finally, we got to the cabin that was turned into a coffee shop, and the view of La Trinidad from there was amaze-balls!😊

We took in the sights some more and then made our way to the coffee shop, expecting food, but unfortunately, we came too soon as they don’t offer meals yet, they will, we were told, but for now, we have to settle for coffee and pastries. Which is fine by us. I mean who can resist cake and a really good cup of coffee? Not #EatsOA, that’s for sure.πŸ˜‹

So how did we find the cakes and coffee? Will post on #EatsOA soon!😊 will update the link here when the post is up.
And that was how “O” and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day, I loved every minute of it.πŸ’œπŸ’™ But then again, if you’re married to your soulmate, everyday feels like Valentine’s Day, some days are just more violent than others.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
There’s lots to do at Mt. Kalugong Cultural Village, I hear you can rent out some of the cabins or maybe set up the tent. Check out their Facebook page for more information, I’ll also make another post when we do get a chance to try out other things that we can do there.😊
Hit me baby, one more time!
