Visiting Baguio After 26 Years

After 26 years we finally visit Baguio. I was only 9 years old when we first visit the city. 

We stay in Baguio Chateau de Gutierrez. The Chateau offers a homey and relaxing stay in Baguio, the place is huge and best for large group. With 4 rooms and 3 toilet and 2 bath this will be definitely a best deal. The place is also surrounded with plants and pine trees it really has a cozy vibe. Better use google map to locate the place it was near Good Sheperd they even have 1 garage to park your car. If ever you commute according, to the taxi driver that area called Cuneta compound. Anyway Baguio Chateau is located in Gribaltar Road. See photo below of rooms and amenities. The caretaker is friendly and accommodating if you need anything don't hesitate to ask him. My brother found this gem in airbnb, there's a lot of accommodation to choose but we chose this because it has 3 toilet (no more waiting around) and the room are spacious . Though during the time we visit which is August 2022 the weather is rainy and gloomy so most of the tourist spot is not jampacked with people. I think this is the less fave month for some but according to the local this is the best time since you don't need to queue in restaurants or you can take photo in tourist spot with no crowd in the background. I listed below the place with visited.

KONSULTAMD (Mental Health Support)

 I just want to share where I consult whenever my anxiety attack or if I just want someone to listen to me aside from my husband since I don't  want him to burden with my problem and worries though I share my problem to him I don't want to it frequently.

Good thing Konsulta MD has a chat option for Mental Health Consultation it was a big help. Konsulta MD is my go to everytime I need medical consultation. They offer package so check it out and download the app.

The only downside is if you want  a reply asap  it will takes a minute there's a 10 min interval in chat maybe avail the video consultation option so you can have the conversation with the psychologist right away. If you are like me that prefer a chat then this one is good for you since not all people is comfortable even in video call I remember my other session with another provider I put in the remarks that I prefer a chat but the psychologist insist that I should show my face so even I don't want to I don't have a choice. The psychologist speak in english even I speak in filipino she answer me in english I begin to felt awkard because I can express myself freely if I speak in filipino.

That's why even they email me for the second session I decided to end it.

For more information about Konsulta MD visit their official fanpage in facebook or download the app in Google Play or Apple Play store.

Quick Recap

 I can't believe how fast time flies. Many things happen for the past month there are times that I can manage my anxiety but most of the time I over think and end up panic because I feel overwhelmed. I consult a psychologist and they always told me to start Journaling (different psychologist with same advice)

So I decided to post my recap this 2022 in this blog. It's been a year since I last post here.


My husband and I decided to take TDC (Theoritical Driving Course) it's one of the requirements by LTO before you get your Driver's license 


Practical Driving Course (PDC) after finishing TDC I enrolled again in driving school for PDC this time. I'm already done for this course. I can still remember my first time I drove a car it's really exciting but at the same I'm nervous because I don't  want to make some mistakes anyway I drive Manual Transmission car. 

I also got sick after my practical driving. We suspecting that I got this while I'm practicing driving because this is the only time that I go out everyday. Good thing I only have to be quarantined for 7  days unlike last year we have to be Isolated for 14 days. Below is the food that my husband cook for me and the result from my antigen test.

And after so many years we updated T vaccines. He's already 6 years old and it's not too late. I also got new specs! This is my first time to wear and I'm glad it's compliment my face shape

And that's all for now. This is just a quick recap.

Ataalaya Farmhouse (Alitagtag, Batangas)


Last December 2021 my family stayed in Ataalaya Farmhouse for overnight. The place is breathtaking and serene. My brother booked this place via airbnb. 

The Ataalaya is like a retreat place this is our first out of trip since pandemic started. Ataalaya also cater as a venue for private event I even saw in other blog that some use their place as a ceremony venue for wedding. Not surprising because the place is really beautiful. What you can do this quiet and serene place? literally all you have to do is to relax, do nothing and enjoy the panoramic view of Taal lake and Mt. Maculot while dipping to their outdoor jacuzzi tub or visit their farm.

For food you can bring your own or have it deliver, we choose the latter since we want to relax but you can request the staff to cook for your group for a fee. For breakfast they served it outdoor in lanai. take note that the staff is on stand by except at night so if you have concern or request don't be shy to ask them

Ataalaya Farm is Located in Alitagtag, Lipa Batangas. 3 hours ride from Quezon City.
