I seldom do reviews of buffet but now I’m doing one and from outside the Philippines.  Bacchanal Buffet is its name, and here’s my review.

West Coast Chronicles: LAX⇢HKG⇢MNL

All good things must come to an end, and that dreaded day had come.  It’s time to pack my bags and end the longest vacation of my life so far.  It was a bittersweet moment as I got to return home but then leave a love one behind.  I can’t imagine how OFWs do it….

West Coast Chronicles: Las Vegas (Day 02)

West Coast Chronicles: Santa Monica Beach

The Philippines has some of the best beaches in the world so I’ve never really had the urge to look for one abroad.  And I definitely didn’t expect that the first beach that I’d actually step onto outside the country would be in the United States!  Here’s my first beach experience outside the Philippines.
