SALT GASTRO LOUNGE

September 23, 2017

Before we left Iloilo City, we had the chance to drop by and try out the food at Salt Gastro Lounge. As we approached the restaurant, the manager quickly went to us to say ‘hi’. It was nice and it felt like they were very accommodating. As we were coming in, we smelled the delicious aroma of honey and barbecue sauce. This smell made us very hungry, heh.…

KAREN TEPPANYAKI

May 12, 2017

Taiwan is home to many amazing night markets. They say that it isn’t a trip to Taiwan if you haven’t devoured local food at the night markets…and that’s basically what I’ve been doing on most nights that I was in Taipei. Yep, I’ve been very accustomed to the night market life. I didn’t even know where to start because they’re everywhere! However, I wanted to try something fancy…

WANGTEA 有記名茶

May 2, 2017

They said that your visit to Taiwan wouldn’t be complete without visiting an authentic tea shop, and drink traditional tea. So I didn’t waste any chances on missing out, and I went to one of Taiwan’s oldest tea shops (which was very accessible because it was ridiculously close to the hostel i was staying in), Wang Tea 有記名茶. As I entered their shop, I was greeted by warm smiles…

ICE MONSTER

April 21, 2017

It’s been raining non stop when I landed in Taiwan. It rained too on the days following my arrival. However, that didn’t stop me from trying out one of Taiwan’s most popular dishes, the shaved ice. I went to Ice Monster in Da’an District because I’ve heard that this was the best place in all of Taipei to try this refreshing delicacy. Walking into their store, I felt…

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE A TRAVELLER FROM THE PHILIPPINES

November 6, 2016

The two most common questions I encounter when I travel are; “You’re from the Philippines? Why is your English so good?” and “You’re from the Philippines? Must be hard to get visas to other countries, eh?” Trust me, it’s a struggle. I started travelling overseas without my family when I was 16. It’s hard to get past the immigration because they had a feeling I’d do illegal works, which was…

5 LESSONS I’VE LEARNED FROM SOLO TRAVELLING

June 8, 2016

It’s been a year since I went solo travelling for the first time. I can say that looking back, my life has been pretty different from where I was and who I was in the past year. I’m going to be completely honest, I wasn’t in my best state when I bought my one-way ticket to Bangkok. I just got out of a very emotionally abusive relationship and…

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE A WANDERLUST IN A ROUTINIZED WORLD

May 8, 2016

To everyone who don’t know, I just graduated from university some three weeks ago. Some of my friends are already working and earning and just living the working class life. Me? Yes, I’m currently sitting my ass off at home searching for flights to go to different parts of the world. Just this morning my grandmother asked me, “Don’t you want to work? You’re so lazy.” She doesn’t…
