Kwentong Kaladkarin # 05: Savoring Sagada (Day 3)

Da Where: Sagada, Mountain Province
Da When: Nov. 20-22, 2010
Da Who: me, Larry, Ice, Paolo and Joy
Da Trivia: a.k.a. 1st Arvato Training Team Building
Da Quotes for the Day: "If you're not hiking, you're not in Sagada anymore."

We pretty much chilled on Day 3 coz this is our last day in Sagada. We woke up at around 6:00 MNL and cleaned and packed up before heading to the poblacion for some breakfast and additional activities.

The bus for Baguio didn't leave until 13:00 MNL so we decided to just lounge around and enjoy the fresh, clean air while we can before we get back to the hustle and bustle of the metro. :)

Getting my Sagada adventure completion cert from Kuya Apz! Weeeh! :D

Right outside the SAGGA outpost, displaying our certs. Angas! :D
Breakfast at Yoghurt House

We all scribbled messages on the Yoghurt House logbook and Pao drew some cartoons of us. :D

Me and Ice working out on the original Sagada church bell. Haha!

The video above is me doing cartwheels at the basketball court at St. Mary the Virgin Church in Poblacion, Sagada. One of my crazy antics. Haha!

We took the last trip out of Sagada at 13:00 (the bus ticket was at PhP 220.00/person) and sadly bid farewell to this wonderful, magical place where serenity and adventure merges ever so smoothly. We were really spent but we know we had the best time ever. I was silently vowing to myself I'd definitely be back. :)

7 hours to Baguio, we arrived to find the City of Pines drenched in rain. We dropped by the market to buy pasalubong for folks back home. Even Larry managed to bring home walis tambo (broom) and fresh vegetables. I, of course, stocked up on the peanut brittle and some fresh strawberries. Yum! :D

We finally got to Victory Liner and got on the 21:30 MNL trip. We mostly slept away the 6 hours ride from exhaustion and finally arrived in Manila at 3:30 MNL and wished each other luck that we'd be able to report to work that day. And indeed, we were able to. Haha! Till we meet again, Sagada. :)

Wala na sa wisyo, after almost 14hrs of bus travel. Hahaha! :D Sagada was worth it. ;P
