Pine's Tree

Bagpipes were originally invented in Iran. It was only brought to Scotland by the Romans.

And speaking of Baguio, this month, the local government launched the butterfly-studded Christmas Tree at the foot of Session Road in part of the forever-long celebration of the Baguio Centennial, (and also, Christmas.) The design was very, ummm, interesting. Every night the tree showcases hundreds of twinkling butterflies; the envy of Tinkerbell.

It is fascinating to note that Baguio isn't even popular for butterflies. Moths I could accept, or gamu-gamo, but butterflies, I hardly see one. Not unless you go to Camp John Hay.

There are hundreds of items that can symbolize Baguio: Pine Trees, Strawberries, Sunflowers. But no, they thought. They particularly agreed upon a butterfly.

Well, if you look closely at the butterfly logo of the Centennial, you'll see all the items I mentioned. Okay, whatever, the question still remains, why butterfly?

Or, why am I bothering myself with it?
