10 Things I Did Last Weekend

I went to Subic one weekend after a whirlwind decision (talk about having a Type B+ personality). The place is not as beautiful and as clean as it used to be when it was first made a tourist destination, but it still is a venue where one could get away from the traffic and chaos in the metro (it’s only three hours away) and get in touch with nature.

Weekend Morning Stroll in Manila

I woke up one morning with the urge to do some photography. No, I’m not a pro and I haven’t taken any lessons in photography yet. What I enjoy about photography is the way this interest makes me smile while looking at beautiful places, and the way it makes me feel excited while searching for people and things to take shots at.

Doing Things the Thai Way

Part 8 of 8

I had a very good sleep on the last night of our trip. Our dinner-get together with our Thai friends lasted until late in the evening and since I wasn’t well during the morning, I literally dropped dead on my bed after packing up for the following day’s departure.

The Elephants and Us

Part 7 of 8

My travel back to Bangkok from Vientiane wasn’t good. I began to feel sick in the afternoon in Laos but I didn’t take it seriously. When I borded the bus in Udon-Thani, Thailand border, my throat was really sore and my nose was clogged. I was restless the whole time I was in the bus.

Nine Hours in Vientiane

Part 6 of 8

Steve and I thought about altering our itinerary a little bit when we heard how bad the road is from Siem Reap to Poipet (Cambodia-Thailand Border). We thought of going back to Phnom Penh and then take a direct flight to Vientiane. But then, our adventurous sides made us stick to our original itinerary (Well, it was only mine ‘coz Steve dreaded to take the rough road.). I wanted (with Steve’s forceful conscent) to experience the ‘rough road’… So we booked a Camry for US $30 to take us to the border.

As Grand As The Angkor

Part 5 of 8

(Unluckily) We woke up to the sound of light rain. It had been raining on and off since the start of SIGA in Siem Reap and most of my SSEAYP friends went to Angkor Wat for three consecutive days to watch the sunrise, but to no avail. It was really cloudy that day so we dismissed the idea of seeing the sunrise. Nevertheless, we pushed through with our plans. Bunsong drove us from the hotel to Angkor. Steve and I decided to choose just the prominent temples since touring the entire Angkor area would require at least three days.
