The chilly February weather, homey log cabin accommodations, fresh scent of pine trees and a mouthwatering breakfast buffet spread, these and more are the reasons why Camp John Hay Manor will always be my top Baguio countryside hotel during the Panagbenga Flower Festival.
The crispiest bacon I've ever had!
Breakfast at the Manor is reminiscent of fluffy berry waffles, Filipino viand, crisp greens, enticing fruity croissants and freshly squeezed juices. Definitely a steal at P580/head.
Spent the entire morning at the countryside and loved every second of it.

View of the luxurious mountain log cabin was absolutely splendid and spell-binding
Our little piece of heaven at Le Monet Hotel. Staff graciously obliged to our request for early check-in. This is the ultimate rejuvenating retreat, utmost convenience and relaxation.
A countryside hotel with modern amenities! Bathrooms are equipped with sleek remote control bidet/flush facilities and a mounted television too! How thoughtful can they get? I soo love it here!

Open kitchen concept at Cafe By the Ruins. A whiff of freshly baked breads greeted us at the entrance. Everything here spells f.r.e.s.h and h.o.m.e.m.a.d.e
Undeniably the perfect spot for taking great photos at the cafe
Baguio Bagnet. A typical Ilocano meal. Double fried pork belly. First it is tenderized in lard, then re-fried to a crisp. Condiments are Podas bagoong and tomato salsa.
Sweet and sour fish
Steak in Herbed Butter
Beef Ribs Sinigang. Falling off the tender beef in broth scoured with tamarind with taro, vegetables and chili.
Bill for the early dinner amounted to Php1,325. To clean our palates, we decided to end the meal with the famed Strawberry Taho Php20.
Capping off the night with warm mint and mallows hot choco from Chocolate De Batirol. Best paired with Suman sa lihia.
Arggh! The best midnight snack ever!

Managed to squeeze in a quick tour of the Baguio Country Club. Check-out this blue and green peacock showing off his lovely tail.
Always looking forward to dine at the BCC. As anyone who lives in Baguio knows well, cuisine at the club is always superb and is in fact one of the best in the entire city.
These amazing breads are my sweetest haul from the Country Club. Blessed to have witnessed this year's Panagbenga 2015. Till next!
