Tokyo-Train_thumb.jpg

Two days ago, during the Oktoberfest event in Odaiba, I was asked by a U.S.-raised Japanese guy and his girlfriend what I liked about Japan. Without any hesitation, I said “the people”. He simply said “Oh really?”. He must’ve thought I was talking about beautiful and sexy chicks but I wasn’t. I was talking about […]

Nakau: Kyoto’s Fast Food

I’m currently on a trip where I don’t have to the luxury of time and money. Travelling to Japan can be quite expensive but don’t get me wrong, it’s still worth it. Being a budget traveller, I always try to save money every chance I get without sacrificing my time. That would mean long, brisk […]

As soon as I settled in on the top bunk of my 10-bed hostel room 2 nights ago, I was so eager to write about how I’ve already fallen in love with Japan just 2 hours into the trip. From the moment I stepped out of the plane, to the time I bought my Kansai […]

Angkor Wat: Beauty Beyond Words

Tuk-tuks are designed to have a full 360-degree view but 30 minutes into the trip, I caught myself staring at the right window. I started to see strobe lights beaming from behind the trees. As I drew close, I began to see the temple in its entirety. When history meets technology, old, timeless beauties are […]

Sturmfrei(adj.) – the freedom of not being watched by a parent or superior; being alone at a place and having the ability to do what you want.   As I’m writing this, I’m green with envy for all the people who are in Chiang Mai right now. It has been 2 years since I went […]

Bucas Grande: It Just Happened

When the Dusk Settles

  I was given a chance to fly to Surigao City for free. And yeah, free is almost always good in my vocabulary. Problem is, I didn’t know what to do in Surigao and I had barely 3000 pesos in my travel fund. But what the heck, there’s no way I’m gonna say “no” to […]

Hostel Review: Backpacker’s Freak Melaka

Backpacker's Freak Hostel

I stumbled upon this hostel while I was walking around the town of Melaka looking for a cheap place to stay. When I arrived in Melaka, I went straight to Blacksmith road and Jonker street to find a place to stay for the night since I was told that these are the streets where most […]

  I’m sure most of us have come across the “Malacca” or “The Straits of Malacca” in our History class back in high school. You know, about the trade that happened here(blah! blah! blah!) How the Straits of Malacca connected east and west as it became the center for trade ages ago because of its […]

The 3 Sides of Sinulog You Need to Experience

Sinulog-Street-Dancing_thumb.jpg

Sinulog weekend is finally here! I don’t think the word “”SINULOG” itself needs a lot of introduction as people from all over the world come to Cebu to celebrate what is arguably Asia’s biggest festival. But for the sake of those who don’t know it yet, Sinulog is a celebration to honor the patron saint […]
