Weekend at Puerto Galera

Summer will not be complete without at least one visit to the beach.  Boracay would be the obvious choice for many, but since all flights are fully booked (which means the little island would be crowded, which I hate), we didn’t bother dreaming of going there.  Instead, we decided to go to the much closer…

Bay Area Chronicles: Way Back Home

It is always bittersweet whenever a trip draws to an end.  Most especially if you’re having a great time!  But going home doesn’t mean that the adventure is over! This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤ ⑥ ⑦

Bay Area Chronicles: San Francisco Redux

Exploring San Francisco in a day is not enough.  And so the following day, I thought of coming back—via public transport!  Here’s the story of my solo flight to SFO, mostly in pictures. This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤ ⑥ ⑦

Bay Area Chronicles: San Francisco Quickie

At long last, the time for me to explore San Francisco had arrived!  It was a challenge for me to go to San Francisco from Pleasant Hill as I don’t have a car, but heaven must be listening as a co-worker volunteered to give us a tour. This is part of a series ① ②…

Bay Area Chronicles: Getting Around

Getting around in California is easy—if you have a car!  The freeway makes covering vast and wide areas quick and easy, but if you don’t have a car public transportation is quite challenging.  It’s no wonder everybody drives in California!  But I won’t let this minor issue hold me back! This is part of a…

Bay Area Chronicles: The Trip to the Other Side of the World

As the New Year arrived I told myself that it was time to get things around.  One of the things I committed to myself was to get back into travelling which took a back seat these past few years.  But I never expected that I’d be going out of the country this early, and definitely…

No Wonder Everybody Drives in California!

As a runner, I always make it a point to know a “new place” on foot.  But as I got to know a piece of California better, I soon realized why everybody drives in here.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): Eat and Walk Around Cebu

After going around Cebu City on foot the previous day, we were just tired that we woke up practically just to checkout of our hotel.  And on our last day in Cebu City, we weren’t done walking around and eating!  Here’s our last day in Cebu City.  It was a Tuesday.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): A Glimpse of Sinulog

The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer.  The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Beaches of Panglao

After having our delightful breakfast at Metro Center Hotel in Tagbilaran, we were off to Panglao Island.  When you put the words Bohol and beach together, Panglao would most likely be the place that would come on top on people’s minds.

Strawberry Chronicles: Bliss Café

Bliss Café was the last vegetarian restaurant we visited during this trip but it was definitely not the least!  In fact, I consider one of their dishes one of the best I’ve ever tried!

Strawberry Chronicles: Oh My Gulay

Oh My Gulay (OMG) is one of the notable vegetarian restaurants in Baguio City and I’m so glad we got to try it finally during our recent trip.  But there’s more to this restaurant than vegetables.
