According to studies, Japan has the highest life expectancy of any country. And one of the reasons why is their meticulous way of preparing food. Their art of selecting good portions of food is something that we should learn and adopt from them if we want a happy, healthy and long life. This was our meal during our “Mt. Fuji Day Trip Including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo” tour. It’s a Bento. Some sweets and veggies Salmon, Chicken Karaage, Tamago, Lemon Mixed Vegetable and Ebi Tempura [caption…

With so many Korean restaurants in the country today, we wonder what would be the taste of an authentic Korean dish. So when we went to South Korea to celebrate my birthday last March, we listed some of the dishes we’d like to try. And one of them is the Korean BBQ or the Samgyeopsal. You can find a lot of BBQ restos anywhere in Seoul (as in) but we’re just happy we landed in Hanam Pig House. The resto is just a few blocks away from our hotel in Namdaemun so it was not a hassle when went back…

Oh! Hello there again my blog! Yeah, I know it’s been a while since my last entry and I’m just so excited to start sharing our journeys again. I’ve been busy with a lot of other things but had managed to fulfill some of my greatest travel wishes. Can’t wait to share them so I’ll start with this one. Ever since I was a child, I always wonder how the snow looks like and how would it feel touching it. I believe this is the same sentiment for those wonderers who live in tropical countries. While this is not my…

I’m already in my mid-30s and I have never entered a cinema alone. Watching a movie all by myself inside a big and dark theatre is one of my greatest fears that I would like to overcome for the longest time. It was a challenge for me to conquer this fear until today. Something came up and I realized that today is the best time to finally do it on my own.  While lining up in the ticket booth for almost 30 minutes,  my will and fear are battling inside my head. I admit there are times that I almost…

This news got me excited! After our successful visa application and trip to Japan, we are eyeing Korea to be our next destination for winter next year. When we came back from Vietnam, we have been doing some researches on how to apply for Korean visa but as the looks of it (and hope this will materialize) we may not need to apply.  Let’s wait and see… Anyways, I reposted here the news from Manila Bulletin’s website published on April 13, 2017. Filipinos and other Southeast Asian tourists will soon be able to visit South Korea easily under special conditions. Philippine…

“And we can still feel the tenderness of mountainā€™s green grasses that embraced our feet as we walk onto it…” The first time I had a glimpse of Batanes from the plane, I can’t help but stare until we landed. I’m stunned with it’s breathtaking beauty and I’m just so excited to experience and look at it closely. The weather is fair but the sun is eye-blindingly bright so I’m wearing my shades that morning. Looking through those dark lenses, I’m seeing Batanes like on a postcard.  It’s just too good to be true! I remember praising God repeatedly for…
