This week’s theme for Mommy Moments is special trip. As a family, it really is important to take the kids out once in a while. It is a great way to bond with the kids. Taking a time out from the usual routine is also a great way to bond with your partner. My husband and I make it a point to treat the kids with out of town trips. The latest we had was a trip in Baguio last March.
I grew up loving Taho or Soya Milk (am I right?). It’s the best way to beat growling stomach. The warm (or hot) soya with caramelized sugar and tiny sago, who could ever forget?
I remember back in college when I had no time to eat breakfast, a hot taho could to the trick to keep my body and mind awake. When we had to do some overnight stuffs and travel to Manila for some kinda of a “field trip”, Taho is our companion.
Now that I have kids, I still can’t get enough of this treat. the best I have so far is the taho from strawberry fields in Baguio City. My kids loved that one too, even my husband. Here in our neighborhood, there are two taho vendors. And as much as possible I try not to buy on the other vendor. Their taho both tasted good. It’s the appearance of the vendor that is not appealing… oh goodness their on food business, they should look clean and trimmed, right?
Would you buy a taho from a vendor who has long finger nails? worst, with dirts on it?
Would you buy a taho form a man who hasn’t shaved?
Would you a buy a taho from a man who looked like he had not showered for days?
I can just imagine how much bacteria he is about to transfer while scoping our mouth watering taho.. ugh!
Here are some shots taken from our last Baguio trip. The famous Lagoon in Burnham Park..
Burnham Park is centered around a man-made lake located at the heart of the city. It was named after the city’s planner, Daniel Burnham. The park is a favorite place of local residents and visitors alike. There are different facilities for recreation and relaxation that are available in the park. You can row a boat, have a picnic, attend an outdoor concert, watch a football game, go biking, or just take a leisurely stroll around the park.
At the southern end of the park is a circular skating rink where skates can be rented. There are also tennis and basketball courts, a few restaurants, outdoor kiosks, a children’s playground, and an orchidarium where various kinds of plants, trees and flowers are sold. Chairs and benches are distributed around the park for those who just want to sit down and relax.
The football field at the eastern side of the park is sometimes used for parades, carnivals, concerts, political rallys, and for display booths during special events and activities. On certain Sundays and some special occasions, cadets of the Philippine Military Academy perform a parade and review or a silent drill exhibition at the field. Just after the big earthquake that hit the city in 1990, many of its residents fled their homes for fear of aftershocks and temporarily set camp in this field. (source)
