Hong Kong and Macau

Hong Kong and Macau are the Filipino’s top destinations for first time international trips. Since we live in a tropical country, Filipinos go to these countries to experience a winter but without ‘the snow’.

These countries are said to be expensive like Singapore. As of November 2017, Hong Kong is in the 5th place of the highest cost of living in the world. (Source: https://tinyurl.com/y83wp4xv).

But who said you can’t have fun by spending less? By taking Disneyland and Ocean Park off our list ’cause we’re not into amusement parks (except for Universal Studio of course!), we have more time to experience the authenticity of Hong Kong’s culture and enjoy Macau’s modern structures.

Fascinating 10000 Buddhas Monastery

There are lot of temples with Buddhas or Hindu gods we have visited since we started traveling abroad. From the magnificent temples in Cambodia to the cave temple in Malaysia and even the reclining Buddha in Thailand. Now, there is another place in Hong Kong that is quite interesting just by its name that really caught my attention — the fascinating 10000 Buddhas Monastery.

The Monastery is located in Sha Tin which is a little bit far from Tsim Sha Tsui but can easily be reached by MTR. It actually has 13,000 Buddhas and what’s fascinating about it is not only the number of Buddhas but the fact that each of them has different expressions and positions.

Simple happiness in Bacalla Woods

Neil and I just had our 1st wedding anniversary and we want it to be extra special by celebrating it differently. Not in any fancy restaurants or out-of-town/out-of-country trips like we always do but somewhere we can enjoy being alone. And since we miss exploring Cebu, we’ve decided to go camping in Bacalla Woods Campsite in San Fernando.

‘Disconnect to Connect’ is their famous tagline. Why? Because you have to disconnect from the digital world since there’s no signal up there. Do you think you can survive?

Border Crossing from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur

This is the second time that we have crossed a border and apparently, it was easier and hassle-free than the last trip. This time, it’s the border crossing from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.
