Strawberry Picking at La Trinidad

The last time we went to La Trinidad we did not do the Strawberry Picking. When we went to La Presa they also had it but they said there were no more strawberries available for picking.
When you arrive at the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad you will first be greeted by rows and rows of Souvenir Shops, Strawberry Ice Cream Sellers, Strawberry taho Vendors, Strawberry Sellers.  The first to greet us upon getting out of the car were the Strawberry Ice Cream Vendors. I bought a cone for P25.00 and it was delicious.

And if you thought that was it, you are wrong. As you get nearer to the Strawberry Farm, more and more rows of Stalls will greet you. And this time more sellers of Strawberries, Strawberry Wine or Strawberry Jam. Just go inside the Strawberry fields and someone will surely approach you asking if you want to do Strawberry Picking.
We entered one of the Strawberry fields and a lady greeted us and asked us if we wanted to do Strawberry picking. We asked how much and she said it was P4…

Choco-Late de Batirol (Camp John Hay, Baguio City)

Since we did not avail of breakfast at the Hotel we went to Choco-Late de Batirol for Breakfast, It was still closed when we arrived, they open at 7:30am. The place is very nice, located just beside the Igorot Park, Choco-Late de Batirol's location is just perfect. 

We ordered the following:

Vigan Longanisa - This was my order and this is delicious. Liked this a lot.

Tocino Kalabaw - This was my sister's order and she did not like it. She asked me to taste it and when i did it was just horrible. NEVER ORDER THIS.

Daing na Bangus - Got to taste this also. The Daing na Bangus was a bit itchy to the mouth but otherwise quite good.

Bibingka & Suman sa Lihiya - Both were not good. The Bibingka was just cake. It had no cheese or Salted Egg. The Suman sa Lihya was not good, it was not sticky. they probably did not use Malagkit.

and of course

Chocolate de Batirol - Perfect for Baguio weather but there are other Chocolate de Batirol much better.

Overall it was a So-So Breakfast. It was the…

Rumah Sate at Ketchup Community (Baguio City)

On Our Last night in Baguio City we went to the Ketchup Community for Dinner.  There were no more parking spaces when we arrived but there was an available space in front of Pizza Volante.
When we arrived at Ketchup, the place was teeming with People. We went to Canto but there was a line of people waiting to be seated so we went to the nearest food place which was Rumah Sate and there was a table available.

We ordered their Meat Group Sate (P999.00) which was a complete meal and included drinks. We also ordered a Bowl of Laksa to go with it.
Our order arrived in 10 minutes more or less. Our order the Meat Group Sate looked very impressive. It had a Rice tower in the Middle covered with a Banana Leaf cone. it had grilled meats like chicken and pork plus Pork Satay.

I really liked the food at Rumah Sate and will definitely be back if we go back to Baguio. Service was very good too.
The Ketchup Community is a Collection of Food Stalls. You can sit in one of the Restos and order from another …
