Fall in Fukuoka: City Tour [2018.11.13]

Last day in Fukuoka! I can’t remember what time we left for our day tour, but I’m assuming quite late since we didn’t really have a lot on our itinerary and we needed to pack everything and check out of our hostel. This is not so much of a city tour since we literally just…

Jun 27: The Artist’s Eye

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.) I can only think of this. I was totally fangirling when I saw this at Pinto Museum. I love the movie-musical, “Ang Larawan” and I also watched…

Jun 24: Morality Play

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source? Let’s just tackle this directly. I think everything starts from your family, how and where you grew up, who raised you, your religion when…

Fall in Fukuoka: Huis Ten Bosch [2018.11.12]

This is another place that we were totally looking forward to visiting – Huis Ten Bosch! Huis Ten Bosch is located in Sasebo, Nagasaki, which is roughly two hours away by train from Hakata Station. There is a direct train going to Huis Ten Bosch so that is super convenient. Before going to the station,…

Quarantine Diaries # 2: Island, Identity, Isolation

Ok, yay. I did another entry to the quarantine diaries! What if? I don’t even know what type of quarantine we are in right now. Even if we change into a different acronym every 2 weeks, nothing’s changed – it will always be freaking hashtag stay home! If there is no reason for you to…

Jun 18: Might as Well Jump

What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take — but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it? Easy. Move to another country. This crossed my mind again during one of my “I woke up today, read shitty things about our government and I’m fed up” episodes last…

Quarantine Diaries # 1: Bed, Bath, and Beyond

I don’t know if there will be a # 2 though. LOL. I will try my best to write more about my life during the quarantine. Funny though that I only decided to do this 3 months into this quarantine. But I do think we are in this for the long haul. I am not…

Jun 16: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?). To go further, write a post based on its subject matter. It may seem like I didn’t understand the assignment (LOL, for all of you, Drag Race fans out there.) – trust me, I did. But instead of…

Fall in Fukuoka: Harmonyland [2018.11.11]

Ok, this is way long overdue! But I need to finish what I started! Hopefully, I still remember some details. This trip was a year and a half ago and I wrote the first 3 parts in March 2019. Best of luck to me, LOL! Just to recap, here’s what I have posted about this…

Dubai Series: Birthday in Downtown Dubai [2019.11.13]

It’s our last day in Dubai! The week flew by so quickly! Although we were able to go to downtown Dubai on our first day, we didn’t really get to explore and although we have seen and passed by Burj Khalifa a few times during the week, this is the day that we’re going up…

Jun 8: Do Not Disturb

How do you manage your online privacy? Are there certain things you won’t post in certain places? Information you’ll never share online? Or do you assume information aboutyou is accessible anyway? I woke up to the news of new duplicate fake accounts that have sprung up over the weekend and it was definitely alarming. I…

Dubai Series: Dubai Parks and Resorts [2019.11.12]

Before anything else, I want to share a photo of the mosque near our hostel. It is right behind our building and I sat on one of the park benches quite a few times while I wait for Celine do some shopping at the convenience store. We totally got lost and accidentally took a longer…
