We never really had a solid plan for this year’s holy week. We couldn’t travel outside of the country because most of my family had their passports renewed. But come Maundy Thursday, my mom wakes us up at 6AM and tells us to pack our bags because we’re going up to Baguio.
Road accidents (including a 10 car pile up on the highway) + a few stop overs, we finally arrived in Baguio past 6pm. After 9 hours on the road, we went straight to one of our fave restaurants in Baguio, Cafe by the Ruins! My mom is a big fan of ABS-CBN’s hit teleserye, Forevermore. So the next morning, we decided to check out Sitio La Presa where it’s currently being shot. La Presa is located a top Mount Cabuyao in Tuba Benguet. It took us about 30 minutes to get there from the city proper, but due to it’s popularity, it took us an hour to get up the mountain and find parking. Check out how to get to La Presa here!
Once we got to La Presa, it has become a tourist trap! Before reaching the actual house of Agenes (female lead in Forevermore), there’s a whole stretch of stores selling different La Presa and Forevermore merchandise. To enter the actual house, they will charge you P25 (which is illegal by the way!) for a so-called Environmental Fee.
