Bangkok Diaries: Pad Thai and Airports

Pad Thai is my favorite Thai dish and I wanted to conclude our trip by having some of the best Pad Thai in Bangkok.  And I think we found it and that’s basically all we had time for on our last day in the city.

The only time we rode a “tuktuk” was on our last day, on way out of our hotel

Bangkok Diaries: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Pratunam, Cabbages and Condoms…

Our second (and last) full day in Thailand brought us all over Bangkok but the day’s highlight would definitely be the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, about 100 kilometers southwest of the capital.  And here’s how our third day went.

Runway Manila is now open!

Do you know that pedestrian overpass that links Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 with Newport City?  Well, it has a name and it’s called Runway Manila and it’s now open!  I had the chance to use it early this week and here’s my experience.

Bangkok Diaries: Wat Pho, Silom, and More!

We didn’t have to go far from The Grand Palace to get to our next destination, Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.  It is just behind the complex and it is a must-see Bangkok attraction.

Bangkok Diaries: The Grand Palace

We were up early on our first full day in Bangkok to explore what the city has to offer.  Our itinerary included the top tourist spots but without any prior knowledge on the transport system and still having no local SIM for data, we have to navigate ourselves using our offline tools.  And here’s the start of our adventure!

Visita Iglesia 2017

Like in the past years, the Lenten Season again brought me around the city of Manila to visit 14 churches.  I didn’t deviate much from my Visita Iglesia last year, but I did it this year on a Good Friday.

Bangkok Diaries: Arrival and Tips

Our flight from Manila was delayed but thankfully we didn’t experience any further inconveniences while we’re up in the air (except for some turbulences).  We were travelling westward towards where the sun was heading, giving us extra sunlight hours despite our later than expected departure.
