What do you like to wear when you travel?

When I was younger and I didn’t know any better, I was the type to bring twenty pieces of clothes on a two day or three day trip. Never mind if its domestic or foreign travel, somehow I still manage to pack too many clothes and too many shoes for my own good. I was…

An awesome Trip to the (Mind) Museum

I love museums. Being the history buff that I am, there’s something about museums that I find blatantly creepy yet oddly comforting. I don’t know about you but I love the sweet smell of old clothes slowly disintegrating through time, the aged books and the little manuscripts bearing a past hero’s secret. That is why…

The world is a few Google Map clicks away

Technology is a wondrous, wondrous thing. I spent the day touring the streets of Ginza, Shibuya and then had a quick jaunt at Mt. Fuji. When I grew bored salivating the many amazing sights of Japan, I made a quick jump at Namsan in Seoul, and revisited my old neighborhood in Myeongdong. I made a…

Oh! The Places I’ll Go!

I decided to develop a travel blog, separate from this blog (The Adventures of Kamikazee Girl) where I usually keep my varying rants and issues in life, fashion, cats and my favorite topic, myself. The decision to have a new blog is due to the fact that I needed a place where I can write…

A Hot Spring Experience in Laguna

Included in my bucket list is to take a dip in a good, honest-to-goodness onsen. You know, the kind where I will strip naked (considering my fear of getting naked in front of strangers) and letting it all hang loose while soaking my body in a delightfully warm water…my worries and stress all melted away….

Happy Endings, Dark Tagaytay Highways & Wishful Memories.

Two of my favorite people in the universe got married last night. Their relationship was a surprise for everyone and it was nice that the off-expected pairing came to a happy ending. Never saw the bride and groom so happy until yesterday. The bride was a sweet go-getter who loved adventure and all things green…

An Assault to the Senses

Earlier, on my way home from work, I realized that foreigner friends visiting Manila for the first time might find my city too loud, too brash for their senses. From the common “tranquility” of the sounds of their respective cities, setting foot in Manila might feel like being trapped in a really surreal Lady Gaga…

A little piece of heaven in downtown Baguio

If you’re the kind of traveler who’d rather do the booking and taking care of the stuff on your own, I am sure that like me–you always try to find value for money. Maximizing the bucks you have to find the best places to stay, eat and even hang-out, then getting that thrill of finding…

Northern Escape

I celebrated my birthday the best way I know how: by escaping the chaos of Metro Manila and heading up where the air is cleaner and the sky is clearer. We’ve always have a preference to going up Baguio, the so-called Summer Capital of the Philippines. And now that my sister has decided to relocate…

The great Seoul-searching trip: Discovering Seoul and Ms. Congeniality

(my thoughts before I fell asleep on my earlier post) I have always been anti-social, and is happily comfortable with the few friends I managed to make in this lifetime. I don’t talk to strangers and would be glad to be happily left alone, without prying questions or people wanting to make “small talk”. In…
