Puerto Princesa: Baker's Hill

As we departed from Mitra's Ranch; our tour guide told us that we will be having our snack really soon. I thought, why not just have the snack in Mitra's Ranch on a picnic style.. Good thing; it wasn't that way or I will miss the adventure of being young again.

A very short ride took us to Baker's Hill. The tour guide said it is the home of famous baked goodies and it started as a very small bakery that has been transformed into a Theme Park.

Baker's Hill Palawan showcased goodies that are awesomely delicious and a Disneyland inspired-park to play around. This place is really good for the kids and and those who would wish to be kids once more; just like the Besties :p

I think the most harassed fiber glass sculpture is this man...
 Dunno about the belly; but it sure does get all the attentions..

 The story behind finding the Baker's Hill:

Once upon a time; there were 6 lovely princesses who went to find a mystical place called Baker's Hill. They walked and walked to see the hill; but no matter how far they go; they couldn't see it. A magical creature named Monroe cast-ed a spell for people to lose their tracks. The iphone gprs ain't helping.. the SUN signal was very poor. They should have brought the sun-dial instead.

Alas! They saw an enchanted horse nearby; but it was guarded by a dwarf; who wouldn't want to let the princesses borrow the horse. The dwarf was with a yaya; este a chambermaid with him. Princess Teng asked the chambermaid to put the dwarf down or he will be forced down violently. The chambermaid smirked and Princess G told her to just let them borrow the horse and the dwarf can have it back right after a few shots; este rides.

The dwarf being taunted by adults; este princesses got no choice but went down. With strong determination; the princesses happily rode the enchanted horse to lead them to the Hill where fantasy is alive.

The princesses saw some enchanted friends along the way and they asked them for direction. The creatures told them that in order to see the hill; they need to defeat the mighty Monroe.

The creatures didn't say that they have to pass through a fierce pirate; who cannot go down the rope as a punishment from the Gods; upon stealing a precious hopia. Princess G took courage and used her best weapon to defeat the pirate. He tickled the pirate until it died laughing.

Then, a few meters away from the Pirate's Land; they saw a smoke.. so dark that they couldn't see.

Alas! the wicked Monroe appeared. Her image brought agony to the princesses; that they almost died out of jealousy.. Ohh! TOO BIG! too big a woman (kala nyo ha!).. Princess Jeh took charge and pushed Monroe as hard as she could. Monroe almost fell (Gosh! I thought we will be paying for this sh@t!).. Good thing, Princess G steadily held Monroe back on her feet again. They talked things out and settle scores like fair ladies.

Monroe said that she was not the one who cast the spell on the Hill; and she too was just a victim. She said that the best way to see the Hill is not to find it but its treasure.

Princess Risa asked where to find it.. Monroe pointed out a tiny box and said; there it is! It was just lying in a furnace-like table.

Princess Edna and Sarah; hurriedly went to the table and said: "Look, Behold the treasure!" "Come and let us share the bountiful blessing we got out of this adventure"

So they share the treasure that only can be found in Baker's Hill. I soo love the Hopia.. hehehhehehe :)

 Didn't i tell you we had a great adventure in Baker's Hill and it brought the child in us? :)
