I traveled Bangkok City alone by myself in a very hotty sunny weather with my 13kilos back pack and a cold bottled water for the last day trip without any meal.  Since it's going to be my last day in Bangkok city, I decided to walk around and visited some familiar temples around the area.  Due to communication barrier even If I asked their police officer nor the restaurant of the manager couldn't give me a correct and exact information about where to take a bus or public transport and how to get into the temples.  So,  I ended up walking and reading the city map of Bangkok and found out the place and reached there sweating a lot.  Since I was wearing short and read on the internet it will not be permitted to enter the temple, so while I was on the bus (came from Phuket Island), I put my pa

For first timers like us in Macau - it's really hard to go around if you do not know exactly where you'll go so if you have extra budget, I would suggest that you look for a Filipino Tourist Guide who can show you around.  In our case, we were able to meet KUYA JACOB - while we were in Macau Ferry Terminal the other day, he approached us and asked us if we'd like him to be our guide - we were a bit hesitant at first so I told him that we will just contact him if ever...

My family had our second OOC - Out of the country vacation last Dec 2010.  The first time we went out was in HK and so we decided to see a glimpse of this LITTLE EUROPE in Asia.... a country known as MACAU in China. I love the weather this time as it was "colder" the second time around  for HK - last time it was soooo Hot... moving forward, i would like to share a bit of my experience in this place... however i honestly have a very short term memory so bare with me if I can't give the exact details of the said trip . First things first ... thank you to Cebu Pacific for consistently having this promo which allows us to travel in and out of the country... travelling around is a bit pricey especially for a budget traveller like moi...
