while the pay isn't amazing, there are a couple of good things about being a lawyer in the judiciary.

the very flexible working schedule. (and i can't help but emphasize the word very!)

the "money lines" once in a while.

the stress-free lifestyle.

and, once a year, the baguio session.

being from the second highest court in the land, our baguio session isn't as long as the supreme court's session: while they spend a month in baguio, we only get to spend a week in baguio.

but a week is still a week.

especially if it's a week of doing virtually nothing, except, probably, watching golfers from the balcony of your hotel room.

uhm, about the hotel room, well that isn't a standard except that i have a generous boss. a very generous boss. again, emphasis on the very.

because while we could be stuck in the cottages like the staff members of the other justices, we got "stuck" in baguio country club.

doing, well, nothing.

and since my boss is really, really generous, we not only slept at the country club, we enjoyed the country club lifestyle as well.

including brunch at the camp john hay clubhouse. by the way, i had pork chops. yummy!

of course, all good things must come to an end. after two days of enjoying the country club lifestyle, we had to go back to the real world, a.k.a. the court of appeals compound.

still, i had the most fun baguio session ever. just check out the humongous smile on my face.

(but between you and me, gay had an even BETTER baguio session.)

p.s. being who i am (a shoe addict AND an SM fan) i had to pay homage to my favorite mall ... and buy a lovely pair of rubber shoes on sale. gay said the colors reminded her way too much of the UP Maroons. i agree. but, being the major school snob that i am, all i can say is well, thank god i have the right to wear these colors!
