Baguio City : Cemetery of Negativism

Baguio City's Famed Grave

A cemetery is a place where you bury the dead. However, there is this unique cemetery in Baguio City where visitors could bury all their negative thoughts. Known as the Lost Cemetery or Cemetery of Negatism, this so-called cemetery contains mock gravestones with tongue-in-cheek humor on them that make visitors think about themselves and their attitudes. With engraved words such as "Kantdu Nuthin Wright", "Doanna Set A Precedent" and "A. Truely Miserableday" one can't help dig deep into their own lives and relate what these words mean to them and letting go of those negativism by burying them here.

Foodstagram Friday : Must Try Gyoza @ Osaka Ohsho

House Specialty

Craving for dumpling, I searched the net to find a restaurant that serves delectable dumplings near my place in Ortigas. My search lead me to Osaka Ohsho which has good reviews of gyoza and advertises itself as the Number One Gyoza restaurant in Japan. There are over 300 outlets in Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea, Singapore and now in Manila and it is located in SM Megamall. Being a dumpling-lover as I am, I just have to try this place.
