Butterfly Farm in Camp John Hay, Baguio

In Camp John Hay, Baguio they have a net-enclosed sanctuary that offers interaction with butterflies bred in this place. they call it the Butterfly farm. Its also a must see because you can see butterflies fluttering everywhere and if your nice enough they will rest on your hand. Butterflies usually are lively during February. The butterflies wont mind being softly touched or letting them cling to your finger or rest on your head or shoulder for that great photo shot opportunity. The entrance to the farm is 40 pesos.

Baguio Revisited after 10 years....

I still miss my childhood memories of the place!!! The last time i was in baguio was 1998 just before the earthquake.. it has changed a lot...although some of the scenery is still the same but without the scent of pine trees, Baguio isn't baguio once you enter the toll gate. U_NEED ( the ONLY grocery at the foot of session road in front of the baguio market ) and Star Coffee shop have disappeared from session road.... i can still remember the smell of freshly baked pan de sal at 5pm on the mid section of session road coming from STAR BAKERY...... the moviehouses in session road...igorots dancing in their G strings for some loose change... pines hotel was replaced by Shoemart.... burnham park looked bare.....sigh!!

I took this shot from the balcony of my room at the Manor Hotel in Baguio.. it was chilly this morning but it was a big difference from the heat of Manila......
