About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Baguio: The Lost Cemetery of Negativism, Camp John Hay Historic Core

    Imagine visiting a place where all your negative emotions, thoughts and impediments to achieving your goals can be buried. A cemetery where no former living thing is buried but where you'll find tombs with funny yet thought-provoking epitaphs inscribed on tombstones. It's a place where you can bury your negative traits and thoughts where you'll end not grieving and instead make you a better person.

    Welcome to the Cemetery of Negativism, sometimes called Lost Cemetery, part of Camp John Hay Historic Core that includes the historic Bell House and Amphitheater.

    The Cemetery of Negativism

    The welcome "tombstone" states: "Negativism is man's greatest sel-imposed infliction, his most limiting factor, his heaviest burden.

    No more, for here is buried the world's negativism for all time. those who rest here have died not in vain - but for you a stern reminder -- as you leave this hill remember that the rest of your life, Be more positive.

    have a good day! - Treat today like it's your last - though it's the first of the rest...

    Some of the "buried" negativisms in a slideshow:

    After the interment of your negativisms, negative traits and bad vibes, leave them all there, never resurrect again. Your highway to achieving your goals may have now been cleared of unnecessary obstructions and be able to harness the power of positive thinking.

    Entrance fee to the whole Historic Core is PhP20.00 per head (PhP15.00 for students and senior citizens). Park is open from 8am to 5pm from Mondays to Sundays.

    How to get to Camp John Hay:

    Besides, The Lost Cemetery, Camp John Hay boasts of two hotels, the upscale The Manor Hotel and the mid-end The Forest Lodge, a Butterfly garden and the historic Bell House and Bell Amphitheater.

    To get to Camp John Hay,, take a jeepney plying the route Baguio Plaza - Scout Barrio and request the driver to drop you off at the gate then walk towards Cam John Hay historic core. If you're three of four, best to take taxi as it's almost the same with jeepney fare summed in total

    I should send there people I know who are constantly seeing but negativity around them - never happy, never thankful.

    What a very unique concept!
