Siem Reap All Over Again


Walking past the withstanding ancient structures that proved to be glorious amidst all forms of obliterations, I realized that once is really not enough. It was déjà vu. I was in the same spot three months ago looking over that amazing Wat, with my buddy and our trusted tuk tuk driver. I’m back at Siem Reap.

Sokha Angkor Resort – Siem Reap, Cambodia


After 12 hours of bus transfers, immigration checks and crossing the Thailand-Cambodian border, we safely arrived at Siem Reap. We hailed a tuk tuk that brought us to our home for three days – Sokha Angkor Resort.

Crossing Borders: Bangkok to Siem Reap


It was a sweet five-day retreat to Thailand during our Nepal-Southeast Asia backpacking trip but we needed to move further to the Kingdom of Cambodia. So how did we get there?

Mga Blangkong Papel: Ang Pagtatapos ng Taong Akademiko 2014-2015


Tandang-tandang-tanda ko pa; isa ako sa pinaka-maingay at nasa top five na listahan ng noisy, nips at standing nung high school ako. Buti na lang may ibubuga ako sa mga aralin kaya’t hindi naipatawag ang mga magulang ko dahil lamang sa mga rason na 'yun. Ang bilis ng balik ng karma sa’yo, ika nga ni Binibining Joson (propesor ko nung kolehiyo) matapos malamang pinili kong maging guro.

Brentwood Suites – Quezon City


What about a weekend staycation at this new hotel in Quezon City? And that was an instant plan with my buddies who seemed to be listless for the past weeks and needed some time to rejuvenate for their upcoming trips. Well, we had a weekend to catch up at Brentwood Suites in Quezon City – just two jeepney rides away from my place.

Martabak Café - SM Mall of Asia


Mee Goreng, Roti Canai and Kopi Ice, these dishes were our staple food during our countless layovers in Kuala Lumpur last year. Since then, we were in forever search for that happy noodle dish around the metro, until last month at Martabak Café.

Luxent Hotel – Quezon City


I almost surrendered to the scourging wind and punishing heat while I was traversing the roads of Quezon City that Saturday afternoon. Squinting in the sun, I walked over to the facade of Luxent Hotel - our sweet refuge for the weekend.
