Hola! I'm in Davao at the moment to settle some things, see friends and family and well, have a mini-vacation before my last year of college starts (OMG, SENIOR YEAR!!!). Anyhoo...
This is not Bahay ni Lola, it's actually something better than that. Haha.
This is Legaspi Suites a boutique hotel located right in the smack of Davao City. Whenever I pass by this quaint establishment before, I can't help but gaze and wonder. It has this Old World charm that makes me want to go inside and explore. Luckily yesterday, I finally had the chance to get inside! It was real nice and cute. I felt like I was transported to Europe in an instant. (Eat, Pray, Love is my current summer read and I told myself "I'll imagine that I'm in Italy!" Haha.)
Wesly and Jess, my highschool bestfriends, were just the perfect company to explore the place!
We catched-up with each other at Tata Benito's, a cute cafe just inside the establishment compound.
How I love my girls! It's always refreshing and revivifying spending time with them. :)
Here are the photos we snapped!
Girl, di yan temple, bahay yan friend.
Oh diba? Parang may-ari lang ng bahay??
It felt so good spending the whole day with my gal pals (too bad our other friend, Cess, weren't with us.) We walked around the streets of downtown Davao feeling like we are in New York City. I just love that me and my girls share the same whims and crazy imagination. It was so fun that we all talked non-stop! There were a lot of stories to tell and hear, catching up with each other's lives. We talked about just everything, from fashion, gossip, people, ideas, NYC dreams and even politics (like, "OMG, Ang hot ni Sen. Sonny Angara" - Lol). I love how we could be both nonsensical and philosophical, deep and shallow.
We stayed at Wesly's place and watched 500 Days of Summer until we dozed off.
Fun day :)
