Partaking of local dishes is something which I always look forward to when traveling and my recent trip to Phu Quoc, Vietnam was no exception. I have always loved Vietnamese cuisine, it is one of my favorites and I always look forward to going to […]
Ho Chi Minh is a lovely and historical city with quirky, little cafes tucked in alleyways and nondescript dilapidated buildings. The unassuming facades of the buildings, where these cafes are located, do not warrant a second glance so I suggest you read up on them […]
Singapore is a tiny city-state and admittedly there isn’t much to explore, especially if you are someone who has been living in the city for more than four years. However, I am a person who tries to see things with a new pair of eyes. There is still so much to see if you are just to explore.
Fast forward to Good Friday and my friends and I didn’t really have anything planned so we ventured to the newly opened Coney Island Park. For people who have not heard of the island, it is an actual island located on the Northeastern part of Singapore.
After quite some time on hiatus, I am now back in sunny Cebu after an unfortunate week of torrential rain spent in Palawan, stuck in the guesthouse and unable to go island hopping in El Nido. Timing does matter because instead of long shorelines and endless sun, you will be getting howling winds and rains which both do not make for a good vacation.
Anyway, I did enjoy my trip although the activities we were able to do were only limited because of the typhoon in Luzon. I have to say that Palawan was not directly hit by the typhoon but it was affected and guests like us had to suffice with just going to the nearest beach.
Southeast Asia is a place which has a profusion of temples and Buddha statues. Bali, aptly called the Island of the Gods, is home to magnificent temples but I have to admit that the one which impressed me most was Pura Luhur Uluwatu.
Also known as the Balinese sea temple, it is precipitously perched on a cliff, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The views at sunset are some of the most gorgeous you will ever get so if you have plans to go to Bali and Uluwatu, make sure that you have your camera handy. It is as if the gods themselves ordered men to build the temple at this exact location.
