A trip to the Osaka Aquarium in Tempozan

One of the more unique aquariums I’ve gone to is the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan which houses different aquatic life and marine mammals while reside in the Ring of Fire of the Pacific.

Serenity in the city

Serenity in the city

Wouldn’t it be nice to have something like this in the city? Well they have it in Japan, in Osaka to be exact. When you feel like getting away from all the madness in the city, a serene Zen garden awaits, for your experience of serenity in the city.

Headed to Japan’s Kitchen

Osaka Dotonbori

I’ll be Osaka bound in exactly a week for a short vacation. While I’ve been to Japan for three times already, they were all to Tokyo. There’s always a nice feeling to exploring a new place once again.

Bangkok Street Food

Bangkok Street Food

Funny that in all the years I’ve been going to Bangkok, I’ve never really tried real street food. Well I have tried the beef noodles from the stand across the hotel I used to stay on Sukhumvit Soi 20. So on this particular trip earlier this year, me and my wife decided to try one […]

Missing scenic parks

Missing scenic parks

I’ve been spending the past two weekends going through our US and Canada vacation photos from last year. ┬áThe more I look at them, the more I keep missing the scenic parks they have there. Really leads me to think that we don’t have any real parks here in Manila. Even our neighbors Malaysia and […]

There’s nothing to do in Manila

There’s nothing to do in Manila

The above picture is not from the Philippines. Yes you read that right.

Manila has no real culture to speak of that’s been really preserved […]

What Will You Do To Watch U2 Live in Concert?

What are you willing to do to watch a concert? We flew all the way to California, braved traffic to Oakland, walked more or less 2 miles from the freeway until the arena to watch U2 Live on their 360 Tour! Well a little bit exaggerated was the flying part. About a month before leaving […]

Sports Fanatics

Sports Fanatics

I have seen sports fans here and there, but I have never seen anything like what I saw in Vancouver where thousands of people flocked to the city center to witness Game 2 of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins. They truly stood by their home team […]

Gotta love the Lumix LX-5

Gotta love the Lumix LX-5

There are times that you gotta love the Panasonic Lumix LX-5 or even the LX-3 for shots like these which would otherwise be impossible with normal point and shoots. You’d normally have to be on the other side of the street to take a full photo of the towers. The hotshoe helped with the light […]

Jalan Petaling – KL’s Chi...

Jalan Petaling – KL’s Chinatown

It was only on my second time in KL that I got to see their Chinatown. Jalan Petaling is the main street where all the hustle and bustle goes on. Dubbed the “Green Dragon” marked by large Chinese arches built in 2003, the street has dozens of food stalls that serve Chinese dishes such as […]
