    I love reading findgoodbagiuofoods! This site made me realize the vast variety of food joints in a small City. An easy access to search for foods and restaurants/eateries that offer the simplest cravings. From organic veggies from Eve’s Garden to a very eloquent and elegant fine dinning experience of Mama’s Table. Looking forward to read more, explore and indulge in pleasure of food in this beloved City of Baguio

    Congratulations Ms. Xine! You have conquered the first of the many years in your chosen adventure!

    I have been following your quests since I
    first heard of you and I do have a lot of respect for your honest and straightforward writing (and apetite :-D). It is indeed a wonder how much you can still learn bout a city you thought you knew.


    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Ms. Jonalyn! Thank you very, very much for so much! (visiting my blog, the support, the greeting … the wonder ^^,) Whew, a year of eating out. *hihi

      Good luck to you! Cheers to learning and discovering more about our fair city!

    Happy Anniversary!!! you know how much i love reading your blog 🙂 minsan, napupuyat na, minsan nagugutom na, minsan wala nang natatapos na gawain but still, it gives me joy to read every blog 🙂 I am one happy mammal here and to tell you honestly, na starstruck ako nung nakita kita sa moonleaf.. i told pa my cousin– “siya siya yung kwinekwento ko sayo na food blogger” 🙂

    • XiNE says :

      Hiyee, Ryle! Aww, thanks muchie! *super touched. I can’t thank you enough. Again, I’m more than ecstatic over your enjoyment of my ravings [wild and maybe crazy but positive (for nonfood for thought restos) *harhar] about Baguio food.

      Good luck sa raffle! Have a great weekend, be snug as a bug in a sleeping bag! (“,)

    Happy Anniversary! ^_^ As I view your blog, nagutom ako… This was great to know and share, lalo na sa mga mahilig mag food trip, like me… I wish I could win..hehe… More power to your blog! 😉

  12. Geromina Salvan Arellano says :

    Hi Christine! This blog of yours really helped a lot of people especially with food questing, you have made it easier for us to which place we should go to esp. At moments when you just have a particular dish on mind or when we want to try something which you yourself could attest how good the place or the food is, and I am one of those who would like to thank you and I wish you more power and happy anniversary!

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Mina! You’re welcome, it makes me glad that others go eatsploring what the City of Pines has to offer, too. Thank you so much for the support! Good luck sa raffle! Have a wonderful Sunday! (“,)

  14. Marie says :

    Hi Xine. Marie here again. We’ll be in Baguio next month. I would like to join your raffle but I’m not from Baguio. 😦

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Marie! Aw, I knew I should’ve thrown a wider net for the giveaway. *hihi Running this blog is such a learning process and you can be sure, I learned this particular ‘lesson’. Next time I’ll have a giveaway, I’ll include nonBaguio residents (as long as they’ll be coming to Baguio so they can claim their prize). Stay tuned for those giveaways, Marie. \m/ Hope you enjoy your upcoming trip to Baguio! Have a great week, too! (“,)

    Whoa…you’re celebrating your blog anniversary already? …where have I been after all this time? Well, I shouldn’t be surprised after all since I am not that much into blogging. Anyways, I was trying to find a fancy place to treat my wife this week since we’re celebrating our 15th year wedding anniversary and I was surely blessed when I chanced upon your blog. After seeing some of your posts, I decided to mark your blog in my computer’s favorites so I won’t forget your blogsite. My wife and I aren’t that much adventurous when it comes to restaurant/food “hopping” so we’re basically stuck with our usual food place here in Baguio. Thanks to your write ups, we can start checking good places in our city that we’ve been missing after all this time. Warm regards!

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, ajiwhite! I know, right? Even i can’t believe it’s been a year of binging around Baguio. *hihi

      Happy 15th anniversary to you and your wife, too! I hope you have a truly memorable time at the resto you deem worthy of being your celebration venue. \m/

      Thank you so much for marking X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods as one of your favorites. Good luck in the raffle! And no worries with you beginning the Baguio food quest yourself. Whenever you’re ready, I’m sure the best food establishments in the city will be excited to serve you.

      Happy new week! (“,)

    Happy 1st Blogoversary Xine! 😀

    I absolutely love the new look of your blog, Sam was right, it’s so totally you. 🙂 and so very apt for what your blog is about, Finding Good Places to eat in Baguio! 🙂

    I don’t have much luck when it comes to raffles, but I have joined because who knows, maybe my luck will change this time. 😉

    • XiNE says :

      Thank you so much, highness! Hooray for finding a quest-y lookin background. Good thing my niece reminded me of what i was going for the first time i started the blog. *hihi

      That’s the spirit! I wonder if this is the law of attraction Sam was talking about. Good luck, highness! Thank you for participating in the giveaway! (“,)

  17. Aris says :

    Wow, this is great! Hahaha! Nice promo of yours. I might be the lucky one:)

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Aris! Aw, the giveaway just recently concluded and I’m sad you missed it. No worries, I’ll be holding other giveaways in the future, sali ka then ha. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Happy weekend! (“,)
