'Chilled' City

Freezing breeze kept all of us in our comforters, pajama pants, socks, gloves, and jackets the entire night. While we intended to wake up very early this morning to maximize our time in visiting the city's tourist spots, the cool climate made it very hard for us to do so. And so we ended up waking up late and almost 'frozen'.

See, weather conditions here could be really nippy -- especially at dawn and even during daytime. I must say though that it's a great way to unwind and cool off (both figuratively and literally) after a whole year of hard work. The clean and green scenery make this travel all the more fun and relaxing. Today we will try to visit all the famous tourist spots of this city. For the meantime, we are just enjoying this unique SM mall that they have here. From its 'terrace', you could actually see the entire city which, I was informed, is about 5,000 ft above sea level. Tonight, we will cap our stay here by relishing a fireworks display that SM City Baguio has prepared for all its clients.

Tomorrow, we shall be traveling back to Manila to spend Christmas eve there. Until then, we shall be immersed in the wondrous sights and sounds of this 'chilled' city.
