Weekend Group Getaway with Azalea Residences Baguio City

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Had the chance to visit Baguio again. This place has its own charm. The people are warm and friendly, you've also got so much food to choose from and if you've got Azalea Residences Baguio as home, you'll learn so much more about the place, the culture and how to keep environmentally responsible whilst conducting huge businesses. 

Azalea Residences Baguio is cozy, no frills, a non air conditioned building too. They can keep it that way because of the climate in this part of the country. They also systematically placed fans in rooms so you won't feel hot at all while you're inside. I like it here.

We had dinner at Kalapaw, a small community restaurant that serves authentic Ilocandia dishes. I had the Pinakbet which is stewed vegetables in shrimp paste and pork rind. It was nice but I find the other dishes mediocre at best. It's a buffet, so it's up to you if you want sheer volume over other restaurants. As they say, you get what you pay for.

We also stopped for coffee at Cafe by the Ruins Dua which is their second branch out of 3. I asked for their best seller so this is what I got.

This is their signature Ruins Coffee and their premium croissant. The coffee had different notes on it, probably stirred by the amount of cinnamon or cardamom they had in it. The other breads were good too. Still, the coffee is worth a try.

This is their Ensaymada and Cinnamon Roll. It was a little dry, not as fresh as we expected. Maybe because it was already night time and they baked it in the morning. Still worth the visit though, just for experience sake. I could laud them on the interiors though because they've got art installations as lighting fixtures. Pretty as your next girlfriend. 

Then we went thrift shopping that night at Harrison Road where they had unbelievable deals on factory surplus shirts and thrifted products like bags, shoes, coats, jackets and toys. I also had the chance to eat my fave street food since they had them on both sides of the street. It was an amazing night to start our first day in Baguio City. 

We went back to our home in Baguio which is Azalea. I had a great night's sleep and prepared for our trips the next day. We loved every bit of it.
