Halloween @ Universal Studios

We got to Universal Studios Japan three days after Halloween and so it didn’t come as a surprise to see people coming inside the theme park already dressed up in their best cosplay attire. If ever you come here at this time of year, then maybe you can dress your part. After all, it can be… Continue reading Halloween @ Universal Studios

Myanmar is awakening, definitely

Last March, I came to Myanmar. It was my first time to set foot in this so-called land of gold. I wondered if I could find and buy a pot of gold here but I didn’t. Instead, I found people with golden hearts, a city with a lot of golden opportunities and golden treasures. I have… Continue reading Myanmar is awakening, definitely

Some friends recently spent a few days in Seoul for a chance to view cherry blossoms and to get away from the summer heat. I envy them. It’s so, sooo hot here in Manila that I wish I could have gone with them. Hearing their funny experiences, adventures and misadventures, in Seoul made me reminisce my own… Continue reading Insadong

I <3 Jakarta

A lot of things in Jakarta reminded me of Manila. That’s why when I came here on a five-day study travel, I got homesick. Practically, its the traffic. One of the major problems that this mega-Asian city capital’s dilemma has is its perennial traffic woes. On our way from the Soekarno Hatta International Airport to… Continue reading I ❤ Jakarta

For one stricken with wanderlust, it was a very awesome experience, indeed. I’m happy that my trusty… Continue reading Pearl Harbor

Reminiscing Hong Kong

Twice, I went to Hong Kong at a time the Chinese are celebrating their Chinese New Year.  My first foray was work-related but despite a hectic schedule I enjoyed a three-hour shopping in Mongkok, walking down TST (Tsim Sha Tsui), riding a double-deck bus and watching the CNY along TST. A good view of the… Continue reading Reminiscing Hong Kong

I’ve been to Tsukiji twice—once when I was in Tokyo, and once in Manila. I don’t remember my visit to that famous fish market until I got invited to dine at one of the famed best Japanese restaurants in Makati City. It was in 2010 when I had lunch at Tsukiji sushi restaurant together with… Continue reading Tsukiji

Those beach-y moments…

Whenever I yearn for solitude, I browse for beach photos stored in my laptop during out of town trips. Reminiscing those moments I was near tranquil waters, resigned peacefully to the healing power of God’s nature is enough to bring me back to sanity. Incidentally, one of the images that popped on my computer screen was… Continue reading Those beach-y moments…

Caffe Bene: for a change…

When I was in Seoul, there were lots of Caffe Bene restaurants around. But it was in Eastwood, Libis where I had my Caffe Bene experience. I went here with two other blogger friends (Jen and Gelo) last year even though I was skeptical at first because I haven’t been to Eastwood! Anyway, when I… Continue reading Caffe Bene: for a change…
