Lah Lah Lah – La Union



From Taipei to Baguio, I was then off to La Union to meet my cousin relating to some DFA stuff… it turned out that he went to Baguio and was able to discuss already at our residence… Anyway, the weekend was young so we’ll still be sticking to the original plan of going to La Union… but this time on a purely recreational trip…

1045 am, 07.07.07 – we took off from our New Lucban residence on our way to La Union… arrived past 12 noon at our cousins residence in Naguilian, La Union for lunch… After lunch and resting a bit, we took off for San Fernando, La Union for the Botanical Gardens but rain came in the way so we decided to go to the Fiesta Casino at Poro Point until 4pm… Lost P300 here (hehe… quite big for me since I’m not really a gambler…)…

After Casino, we then went to the botanical garden which was a bit far considering the several uphill climbs… On the way, we were kidding that we’d eventually end up in Botanical Garden in Baguio due to the climb… hehe… Arrived in the Botanical Garden at 450 pm which was scheduled to close at 5pm so we just took a short tour around… there’s so many plants (of course, as expected) and several animals like monkey, turtle and several species of bird…

Next stop was Puerto de San Juan in San Juan, La Union arriving there at about 6 pm where we caught a glimpse of the sunset… the waves were a bit strong since this is a surf area in La Union… and the sunset was such a delightful sight… The sunset was such a nice view that even after leaving Puerto de San Juan, we entered another resort for another view of the sunset…

It was then time to satisfy the churning of our tummies… and was lucky enough to find one restaurant that was overlooking the beach (the lower part of the restaurant is already the beach) and at the same time boast of a very friendly price, “Inihaw, Ibinalot at iba pa.” The view reminded me of Tamshui in Taiwan, where you also have a shoreline view… except that this is a beachfront area…

After dinner, we then proceeded to a bar in Poro Point, the Amber Bar, which was the best we could find but I don’t think nightlife, except for the Casino maybe, is prevalent in this area… so had to go back to Naguilian to sleep at our cousins place since it’s a bit dark to resume our trek to Baguio… had our good night sleep and then the next day at around 6 am started our way back to Baguio… Arriving home, it was time for my favorite pastime again in Baguio which was sleeping… hehe… woke up at 1 pm, went out for a while and then took the De luxe bus to Pasay at midnight… A long weekend has ended and now starts a long week… hehe…
