Queen Victoria Market

Hi readers! It’s been more than a month since I last posted anything on the blog. The world of work really caught up with me and I have just been absolutely swamped since then. Everything is now a little bit back to normal, a little travels here and there, a few books and page turns sometimes, but still very much work related. After more than a month out, what have I to show for it? Well a 5 day trip to attend the Apple Distinguished Educator’s Academy for one, plus a whole lot of quick adventures in Melbourne for one.  Continue reading →

Universal Studios Japan

We’ve arrived in Osaka and we can’t wait to explore the city. Before we actually travel and go anywhere else, we had to make one important stop before the weekend: visit Universal Studios Japan and see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  Continue reading →

Kyoto Day 1: Kinkaku-ji and Arashiyama

As the day wore on and having just finished my proposal, it was time for us to move on to the next stops in our itinerary: the Golden Pavilion known as Kinkakuji and Arashiyama’s bamboo forest. Continue reading →

Roll Play Game Lounge

You’ve probably heard or were probably there when it happened, but sad to say, Dyce N’ Dyne is no more. Last weekend, they auctioned off most of their games and over the week, the lights of DnD were no longer on. It was a sad and shocking moment. But it was quickly replaced by another exciting and new gaming lounge not too far from my place. Continue reading →

2016 Year in Review: Travel

This year was a huge year for me. When I started in January I was expecting a few travels here and there, the big ones were: Hong Kong for a conference and Indonesia for a wedding. Little did I know that I would be heading off to another dream destination a few months after, Seoul, South Korea. That trip was a memorable first for me, I didn’t expect it but at the same time I welcomed it because it was an opportunity to travel solo, something I had been meaning to do for quite some time now. In the last part of my three part year in review series, let’s take a look back some of the best places I’ve visited this 2016.

Ludo Boardgame Bar and Bistro

It’s no denying it, I love card games and I have always been fascinated by board games. There’s nothing better than sitting down on the floor or on the table, shuffling cards or setting up pieces around the board. Nothing beats also the feeling of learning the rules and devising strategies to beat your opponent or that thrill of successfully achieving one of the side quests in Ticket to Ride. Last Friday, I got the opportunity to visit another board game cafe, Ludo, along Jupiter Street in Makati City.  Continue reading →

Salcedo Weekend Market

For the most part of this year, Tricia and I have been spending most our mornings walking in Makati. It’s a way for us to squeeze in a little exercise, sweat a little, and try to one up each other with our step counts on our Fitbits (I usually win). After exercising, we would always end up in Salcedo, with the smoke from the grills sending out mouth watering smells and the early hubbub of people eager to find something new and interesting to eat.  Continue reading →
