Food Trip | Starbucks @ Camp John Hay and Divine Sweet Delights

FOOD TRIP | Starbucks @ Camp John Hay and Divine Sweet Delights
Baguio Food Tour 2013

A cloudy afternoon cast in Baguio, we found a great place for downtime in Starbucks at Camp John Hay. This place brings back memories from my previous visits to Baguio because of the seemingly quite atmosphere that the sprawling golf course and the scattering of pines invoke.

We enjoyed our customized Chocolate Cake from Divine Sweet Delights

The Divine Sweet Delights is our sponsor caterer, a home based pastry shop in Baguio City, as proudly promoted by our Baguio Resident blogger, they have the best of Carrot Cup Cakes that are heavenly and indulgent, being true to their brand name Divine.

A box of Cup Cakes from Divine Sweet Delights is our pleasant surprise once everyone has gathered. It was a great match for our very own choice of Starbucks drinks.

We had our fair share of perfectly baked Carrot Walnut Cup Cake topped with Cream Cheese.

Another box is the Chocolate Cup Cake with Butter Cream Topping.

The Unguarded Moments

Going around Baguio in 2 groups as taxis would can accommodate. I was part of the first half to be in Starbucks at Camp John Hay while the 2nd Half are trying to hail a taxi from Mines View Park. A well deserved down time really, rain had finally fallen, it made the atmosphere eerily gloomy, and as we settled inside this nice Cottage that was Starbucks of Camp John Hay, it was comfortable, it was warm, the sound of the crowd talking, and of children making noises made us feel at home while rain can be seen pouring from the cottage windows.

Here I share some of my buddies unguarded moments in the middle of this Baguio Food Tour. It's nice to see the gentle facade of these bloggers when they are comfortable and had nothing else to do.

We let Kirk enjoy his ME time fiddling with his phone beside the cottage window, with the light rain pouring over the Pines in Camp John Hay.

Feeling the weather, Gabz is also fiddling with his phone.

Here I am, I get sleepy when it rains.

Buddies on the cottage, Sinjin taking a nappy time while Glen is trying to bring his energy a notch down as he looks far beyond the window and the rainy landscape of Camp John Hay.

Kuya Rob deserved his downtime too, with a Starbucks drink.

This event was made possible with the support of Victory Liner who brought us vice versa from Manila to Baguio, even though it was slotted for a long weekend. Early bookings had made this trip less hassle and comfortable altogether.

Here is my Instagram share via @pinoytraveler last October 25, the terminal was jam packed, but we didnt have to join the melee of chance passengers. Advisable when traveling to Baguio, make reservations ahead of time.
