Manila Bay and Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year holiday gave me a chance to revisit the city of Manila, particularly Chinatown and the surrounding area.  But first, I had to see what the recent fuzz is with Manila Bay.  Here’s by brief adventure.

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. This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤…

My Halloween Weekend

The Halloween long weekend finally gave me some chance to have some much needed sleep.  I didn’t go out of town as many people may have done, but I dedicated a day to do some long easy run around Manila.

Running and Pokémon GO

There’s no doubt that Pokémon GO is one of the most disruptive innovation lately and it had forced a lot of people to get off of their couch and move.  And even I, as a runner, was not spared as I found myself more “motivated” to go places to catch Pokémon.  And last weekend was…

Manila Bay’s White Sand Beach

White sands and Manila Bay don’t usually appear in one sentence, but now there’s really a patch of white sand along Manila Bay!  Aptly named Sands at SM by the Bay, it lets you enjoy the fine white sands without going outside Metro Manila.

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: 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…

MRT: No More “Round-Trips”

I’ve heard of rumors that the MRT no longer allows passengers to do “round-trips” but I wasn’t able to validate it until yesterday.

#StayPositive: Energizer Night Race Manila Review

I’ve always loved Saturday night races: there’s no risk of a sunburn and there’s absolutely no need to wake-up early!  As such, I was really excited with my first night race of the year, Energizer Night Race Manila.

Behind the Scenes: Pico Tri Invitational 2013

I’ve been very privileged to have been part once again of Pico Tri Invitational for the second year in a row, and this year’s event saw the event grew much bigger than the previous. Here’s a behind the scenes look back at this event that happened last April 06, 2013.

Visita Iglesia 2013

Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches.  I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.
