Philippines | Bahay ni Jose Rizal

UntitledDuring one of my vacation leave (when I was still working in Singapore), I asked mom and Cha to take me to Jose Rizal’s house. It’s been a while since the last time I visited ( I was still in grade school). I hoped that the weather will cooperate. It somehow gave me a chance. Well, it’s better than nothing. I’m just glad I took the chance to come back. It felt wonderful.

Hongkong: Solo for the First 24 Hours

Repost and re-edit of pictures from my old blog.

I’m solo on my first 24 hours in HK. I was apprehensive at first but, I managed anyway. All the walking, reading of map/book and asking for direction helped me through my day. I also downloaded the¬†MTR¬†tourist¬†app for directions to the¬†tourist attractions (very reliable! and easy to¬†understand). I had a good grip of my time since I decide for myself especially on when to leave or stay a place (that’s why I love solo travel).

I booked my accommodation with Roomorama. Cheaper than hotels and the owner was very accommodating. It was a typical flat that was very comfortable and homey.
