The Easter Weaving Room is only walking distance from Rin’s place so that was our first stop for my last day in Baguio.
The actual weaving room is located on the ground floor. When we arrived, everyone was so busy doing their jobs and most of the people we talked to treated us like some sort of unwelcome guests. No hard feelings though because their line of work needs a lot of concentration. In the end we just observed them, took a couple of pictures, asked some questions, said our thanks and then left. According to one more accommodating lady, the hardest part of their job is the beginning where you have to make sure that the threads are aligned. Imagine how intricate that is. One mistake and the whole thing will be messed up.
The upper floors of the building display a wide array of products available for sale. They range from house ware items to clothes, fabrics, native costumes, apparels as well as church vestments! They were kind of expensive though all I was able to buy is a passport cover and Rins badly wanted a chess set which costs 17,000 pesos!
Next stop was BenCab museum, owned by National Artist for Visual Arts Benedicto Cabrera. It was more or less a 20 minute ride from the city proper of Baguio. As far as I can remember, there is a fee of one hundred pesos for visitors.
After BenCab we went to a famous restaurant in Baguio, Good Taste. Among all the places we dined at, I think this one gave the best value for my money. It’s affordable and very ideal for large groups. I can imagine bringing my family here if ever we go on a Baguio trip in the future.
Custard and Yema cake. Not the best but considering it is only sold for 22 pesos, not bad. I kind of felt nostalgic upon tasting these two. They reminded me of the cakes I used to by in the nearby bakery in my hometown when I was younger.
