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…

“And we can still feel the tenderness of mountain’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…

On the day we left Batanes before heading to the airport, our service driver asked us, “Wala na po ba kayong naiwan, Mam, Sir? (Have you not forgotten anything, Mam, Sir?)”, then I replied, “Meron po eh, naiwan ko po ang puso ko (I think… I left my heart)”. Then the driver smiled with pride. I know he is proud. It is true! Batanes with its incomparable beauty is hard to leave and forget. It made us fall in love as soon as we laid our eyes on it and experienced the genuine honesty and simplicity of its people. And…

Known as the the Little Las Vegas of Asia, Macau (Macao) is definitely a land of luck and night life. Most people go to this place to play but like other passionate travelers, our reason is to explore and experience it the best way we can. We are so blessed to explore this once a Portuguese-colony China territory three times in the last five years. I once dream of stepping on this land since college (because of Boys Over Flowers Koreanovela) and looking back, I’ve fulfilled that dream over and over again. Ruins of St Paul…
