My younger brother, Estong, took a photography class in Intramuros just last month. In order to improve in his craft, he wanted to go to Baguio and take photos. Unfortunately, we didn’t push through with it because the weather was bad, so we went to Pampanga instead.
We got a hotel for an overnight stay and went home the very next day. Surprisingly, we were able to go to a lot of places. Unsurprisingly, I took a lot of photos. I’ve been meaning to do this photo dump blog post from weeks ago already, I was just prioritizing other blog posts. Hehe. Anyway, here you go. I took the pictures using my iPhone 6S and post-processed with VSCO.
I had a really good night’s sleep. That I can’t and won’t deny. It must have been the feeling of waking up to an air-conditioned room, which I don’t experience now ever since we moved to our current house about three years ago. The first thing I noticed when I woke up was the lighting. Good Lord, our hotel room welcomed Mr. Sun with arms and legs wide open. Everything was too photogenic to be true! I seized the moment and may have got a little too vain.
We had breakfast at Chowking and after, off we were to Clark’s American Cemetery.
After the cemetery, we went to Nayong Pilipino. And before we even get to the photos, I will tell you now that it’s a waste of time. If you’ve been to the legit places Nayong displays in the park, they just look like a complete mockery. A ticket costs P150, yet 50% of the place is untidy. There’s really not much to see, but I guess it’s because it’s not the original Nayong Pilipino. Keep reading and you’ll see the untidy part I’m talking about.
I’m no longer going into the facts since I’d rather share real facts with the real thing like what I did with my blog post on The Manila Bae, so please, just enjoy the photos. 🙂
This is where things start to look trashy. I don’t even recognize this spot. I’m not sure what they’re trying to show, and clearly, they couldn’t care less about the place. This is our P15o-ticket per person, so. I didn’t want to just waste our money away, so what did I do? Took loads of photos, of course!
After Nayong Pilipino, we went back to the hotel room to rest a bit and check out. I took a nap while the rest of my family lounged around, watched TV, and packed our stuff. We also had to-go meals for lunch and ate inside our hotel room. When we left, we went to San Guillermo Church, had dinner at Bistro Maloleño (Malolos), and passed by Barasoain Church.

I’ll be making separate blog posts for each since I took a lot of photos that day. I don’t want to bombard you with so many photos in one blog post, but I hope you enjoyed the photos I included here. It took me a lot of attempts before I finally published this. For some weird reason, I kept being disconnected whenever I opened this blog post. Must be the photos? I’m not so sure since I’ve had other photo dump posts with more photos in them.
But anyway, so here’s our Day 2 at Clark, Pampanga. During Day 1, we got to the hotel very late so there’s not much to tell. Hope you stick around for the next blog posts! 🙂
