The City of Pines, Baguio City, was a big surprise for me. The last time I went up to the Summer Capital of the Philippines was back in the mid 1990s. Though Baguio back then was a far cry from the Baguio of my childhood days, it was not so bad. I hardly recognize the city now. It was so congested with people, cars, commercialism et al.

The old Session Road's topmost part has a humongous mall sitting on it. It was teeming with people that I thought I was in good old Manila or Makati. I had to make a quick trip to the mall since I needed an electric kettle to "sterilize" Tabby's bottle. The mall has all kinds of specialty stores. I could even buy a keyboard at guitar center if I wanted too!

What is sad is the fact that the once beautiful City of Pines has transformed into a crowded, polluted and highly commercialized city where the whiff of pine trees is no more.
