Almost 2 years ago, I visited and fell in love with the “convenient” country instantly and wished that I’ll have a chance to work and live there. This year, after keeping my crazy faith in my dream job, I was given a very good opportunity to explore and establish my career and a bonus to move to Singapore. Coming from Manila, moving here is such … Continue reading Turning "bano" as I move to SG
One of the most interesting celebration of new year for me is the Chinese way. Because of their many different beliefs and rituals, they welcome the new year full of hope and optimism.Two weeks after I moved to Singapore, I celebrated CNY for the first time together with my We Are Social family. Here, the Chinese believe that tossing up yu sheng (raw fish salad) … Continue reading Toss up for a good year!
I finally realized my travel goal for this year a few weeks ago when I visited Siem Reap to see the majestic Angkor Wat. 🙂 I wasn’t able to cross the border of Cambodia and Vietnam as planned but I think it’s a good idea to visit them separately to focus more on getting to know them more. I blogged about some little details that … Continue reading Khmer Memos
“The air is different here,” that was my first description of Siem Reap, the home of the largest Hindu temple of the world, (and the place that I was dreaming about exploring by boat for the past months) and a place for the second largest airport in Cambodia and most “touristy”.As I wander around the town by foot and by the usual Tuk Tuk that … Continue reading Siem Reap: some pieces for home
On top of my list when I was in my early 20s (Goodness! I’m saying this now!) was to surf, first was to climb a mountain. I usually have a timeline for my plans, Climb a mountain: 18, Travel abroad: 25, (both were realized before the deadline by the way. haha) but for surfing, it was just in my list but I never believed in actually … Continue reading What I learned about Surfing

Roadtrip. Fresh fruits. Waves. –Some of the few things that keep you high in Zambales, a province in the central part of Luzon (Philippines). For some people in Manila, it’s good to go to South and wander under the sea but some prefer to check out what’s there going North and ride on top of the sea. But I suggest to do both and cherish … Continue reading Surfing trip: Zambales
It seems like I traveled back in time when I stepped in the town of Taal in the province of Batangas. Aside from its very beautiful Church that stood strong for a long time, I am listing my few unconventional favorites in Taal! 1. I like these hair brushes, hair pins and mirrors from so-long-time-ago! I feel like there are some magical powers that will … Continue reading Taal Time Machine.
I don’t usually buy so many souvenirs when I travel because I’m more focused in the whole experience and cultural immersion. But when I’ve seen my souvenirs from Bali and Jakarta which I think were the only things I bought in all my travels, I kinda regret not buying souvenirs from other trips and I think I should buy some important little stuffs from now … Continue reading I got souvenirs!
Growing up in a very family-oriented society like the Philippines, I make sure every year that I’ll be joining my family in the new year’s eve and that no member will be missing simply because there’s a belief that it will mirror the whole year and I definitely don’t want to be away from them the whole year! Haha. Aside from that, we have our … Continue reading NYE 2012: Away from home
