Apple Chronicles: Exploring Houston

I only have eight days in Houston and most of it is occupied by official business.  I also only have a weekend so I have to make the most out of my time and forget about jetlag.  And so, my adventure started the following morning.

Apple Chronicles: Houston, We’ve Arrived!

After seven hours of waiting, I’m finally on my way to North America!  Now comes the longest non-stop part of my trip: a 10 ½-hour flight over the Pacific Ocean and the Arctic!

When the lights were turned off, I was pleasantly surprised that our plane’s ceiling light up like stars in the sky… It’s actually much darker than this photo would suggest so it had much more impact.

Apple Chronicles: Taoyuan International and EVA Air Infinity Lounge

I arrived in Taipei with seven hours to spare.  Realistically, it’s too short to really do much in the city, but it’s ridiculously long to spend inside an airport!  Good thing that Taoyuan International Airport (桃園國際機場) is huge and should be able to keep me entertained.

Apple Chronicles: A Journey of Superlatives

November is a special month for me as I was born on this month.  But this year, November had been extra kind to me as I embarked on a practically month-long trip on the other side of the world.  And everything about it was unexpected.

Palawan Chronicles: El Nido, et al

There are still a few things that I’d like to save for posterity from my epic Palawan trip.  That includes some interesting sights from Taytay to El Nido, and the little airport as well.

Last view of Apulit Island from our boat.

Palawan Chronicles: Hanging On

Apulit Island may be small, but three days are still not enough to fully enjoy this paradise.  But before we finally depart, there’s just one more “crazy” thing I wanted to do…

Soaking in the view from our balcony one last time…

Palawan Chronicles: Meeting the “Locals”

We only have one full day at Apulit Island so time is of the essence!  Gotta do what we gotta do, and this day turned out better than I had anticipated.  Here’s our second day at the island.

Good morning, Apulit Island!
