[1: 1,722 of 10,000] My 10 Vacation Tips

In List on June 14, 2016 at 11:47 PM


  1. Travel to me means going to a new country that I’ve never been and soak in a lot of first time experience so be very open.
  2. Stick to plan or deviate to the plan, the most important part is enjoying the journey. It’s not the time to argue with anyone either with travel companion or with the locals or other tourists. Relax, be chirpy happy, and don’t sweat the small stuff.
  3. Try the local cuisine. Try to be as local as you can be to really know the culture of the country you’re visiting.
  4. Go to tourist attractions or discover a new haven which is not necessarily popular. The travel is all about you too so suit what matches your taste. Blend it yet don’t be afraid to stand out. You’re a beautiful creature after all.
  5. Bring the essentials, don’t overpacked especially on clothes, although I’ve been guilty of bringing a little bit of too much. It is indeed comforting to know that I will never ran out of options on what to wear but there’s always shopping locally. 😉
  6. Be mindful and sensitive about what’s sacred or holy in the country. It is always good to be respectful.
  7. Setting your own driver and sort of tour guide ahead of time could worth it especially if you’re like me who is not really keen of going with lots of crowd. This will give you special attention and comfort not to wait on anyone.
  8. Depending on budget, booking with 5-star hotel is the most convenient way for safety and ensuring all the pampering will be expected; but if budget is a little tight then go a star down or contact a friend with big apartment.
  9. Bring both cash and credit card. Cash as much as possible must be the country’s own currency or go for the almost universal currency US dollar anywhere except in european countries go for Euros.
  10. Take pictures but not necessarily too much pictures especially nowadays that sharing too much in social media is kind of addicting or ego tends to boast. My biggest dream is to make it big time that I would tag along a real photographer to take my photos either candidly or artistically while I am out and about. The real beauty is to appreciate what you already see in the present, connect with nature or performance, and imprint the memories in your subconsciuous kind of thing.

From Dubai, there’s a stop over in Doha, before landing to my final destination Bali. In each city, there were different time zones. It amazes me that time becomes fluid or kind of magical.

Travel dear ones, so your soul gets awakened. You will cherish life with new discoveries out of sights, smells, and tastes. Meet new possibilities, try things you’ve never dared before, but most of all be open to appreciate what are beautiful in the journey. #Relax

I’ve been to Paris, Munich, Berlin, Salzburg, Hong Kong, Alexandria, Cairo, Sharm el-sheikh, Amman, Muscat, Buraimi, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Umm Al Quwain, Manila, Davao, Ilagan, Cauayan, Santiago, Quezon, Tagaytay, Laguna, Marikina, Pasig, Caloocan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Tuguegarao, Iloilo, Mandaluyong, but I truly fell in love to Bali.

[1: 1,696 of 10,000] Passport Holder Choices Drama

In Review on March 18, 2016 at 9:45 AM

I couldn’t decide which to buy!

Passport Holder

I have been looking for a sturdy passport holder and I finally check Louis Vuitton last night and I was presented with three choices.

  1. (Left) It feels softer, the classic, and weighs the lightest but a little bit shouting LV all over.
  2. (Middle) I love the design, it weighs the heaviest, and I am scared to stain it.
  3. (Right) Simple, chocolatey, but then I am not loving the texture.

Will I buy what feels right, looks pristine, or the modern chic?

The sales associate thinks I am choosing 3, a part of me can’t let go of 1, so I am a little bit torn. I only hold one country passport so it is too extravagant to purchase two just to leave one at home.

I still have until May to decide 🙂 I’ll go for 1, or 3, yay still not sure but definitely one of them.

I took the photo (iPhone 5s) from the plane when we are about to descend in Muscat, Oman –

Plane View

I am always fascinated with the sky with its brilliance in various colours. Cutting the clouds is the plane’s wing and isn’t it marvellous that human mind created a thing that flies and move people to see a new country and in this photo blends well to the art of the nature.

There are really so many beautiful things surrounding us if we focus on them instead of our drama to fall into negativity. 2015: Positive Vibe only!

I like this new Turkish Airline advertisement.

Spot the current trends:

  1. Selfie – A real brand new word that is currently loved.
  2. Smart touch screen phone – Technology’s treat.
  3. Travel is a real statement and surprisingly easier now! Tourism is encouraged in most countries.
But some things never grow old:
  1. Men will always be competitive, to outwit anyone. We want to win and with that we push ourselves to become creative.
  2. Endorsement works especially tapping different audiences by combining 2 different sports personalities.
  3. We respond to humor. I will remember that Turkish Airline once upon a time had fun series of advertisements.
On a realistic note, may we truly use technology to CONNECT. It should not put a dent to physically touch someone and speak with someone face to face. And may we use our creativity to explore new possibilities to make life FUN!

For the Egyptian locals these fleeting scene leading to a famous mosque is quite ordinary but for a traveler who is seeing Cairo for the first time like me found it extremely interesting and I exquisitely took in the experience and its essence.

[1: 893 of 10,000] Hymn to Jordan

In Poem on January 9, 2013 at 10:54 PM

The dusk of sun

The rainbow sands

The glorious pillars
in bitter sweet awe

Cave with cozy warmth
Dream a heavy coat

The smiles
Fuzz the heart

The love for wonders
Stays forever

Petra's Treasures

I consider this photo taken from Petra as delicate because the archeologists give so much care in finding and revealing the old civilization of the Nabateans. The man at the right was playing an old instrument with a hymn of the past. I didn’t understood the lyrics but I appreciate the reenactment.

I also learned to appreciate black and white photo because it has attitude and a very classy impression.
