Memories Of Panagbenga 2009

It was my hubby's first time to attend the Panagbenga in Baguio in 2009. We just arrived from the US that time and I took hubby there to watch the Panagbenga meaning Flower Festival. It has been his dream to go and watch it since I've been telling him how nice and beautiful it was. I've been attending the past festivals before I went to the US. My siblings and I went up in Baguio every year just to witness the said event. Lots and lots of people flocked to Baguio every year to watch it. You will see people every where. I know hubby don't like the crowd but he endured it just to watch it for the first time. We went to Burnham Park where the Landscaping Contest was being shown. We had to pay P30 each for the entrance fee. It was high because it was the opening day. The next day we went again and it went down to P10 each. We took pictures of the landscape entries. They were so beautiful and each landscape entry was unique. The landscapers were so creative. The winners were announced on the last week of the festival and they chose 3 winners, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I didn't know who won though. Here are the photos of the landscape entries. Which do you think won?

Dinner With Friends At Cici's Pizza

One restaurant where hubby and I love to eat is at Cici's. It's too bad they don't have that kind of restaurant here in my homeland. I was looking at my files and I found those photos that we took when we went to eat at the said restaurant 4 years ago in Wichita Falls. Our friends Pastor Yanie and his wife Sis Modie went to our house and spent the night with us. They are good Christian friends and we really enjoyed their company. They invited us to Cici's Pizza and we met there those people from their church in Bowie. They all came up in Wichita Falls and had a Christmas celebration at Cici's Pizza. It is a buffet restaurant that serves different kinds of pizza pies. They also have vegetable salad. The East Side Baptist Church paid our meals and it was really a blessing. Hubby had the chance to talk to Pastor Jamie Reed, their church pastor. I was only able to eat 4 slices of different pizza flavors and I already got full. That's the most I can eat. My hubby had eaten a lot though. He loves pizza pies. It's been a while since we ate there and we miss the foods. When we go back there next year, we will surely go there and eat.
