Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I took this photo last May 2010.

This truly is a sight to behold.
No amount of words or camera technology can really capture the majesty of this man-made structure. To be able to visit and catch a glimpse of the towers is really an experience that does not only marvel the eyes, but also awakens so many emotions. It really is an art.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

20130325-234521.jpg

Just bought and assembled this 3D puzzle of the Statue of Liberty in New York City. It has LED lights at the base, which makes it so cool.

Anyway, when I saw this I thought to myself: I just had to have this!
Aside from the fact that I love puzzles, I also love that it’s reminiscent of one of my dream travel destinations — New York City.

I want to visit the city that never sleeps because of three major things:
1. Broadway Musicals – I want to see at least one (but if possible, ALL) theater show in Broadway.
2. Gray’s Papaya hotdogs – after seeing the movie, Fools Rush In, where Matthew Perry’s character constantly crave for this hotdog, I can’t help but connect this food to the city. I just got to try one!
3. Times Square – seeing this busy intersection on tv and in pictures really gives me the chills every time. I love the lights, the busyness, and the diverse people. So I plan to take lots and lots of pictures of this one day.

This may be a dream for now but I know one day I will get to see you, New York. Stay as awesome as you are… and wait for me. To the future and New York!

This is the street where I grew up in. My childhood home in Zamboanga City, Philippines.

Saigon Trip 2012

This video was shot and edited by my Saigon travel buddy, Tatia.
I miss everything about Ho Chi Minh.
The food. The sights. The people. The coffee.
I will definitely have to go back.

Places

I figured most posts regarding the topic “Places”, people will be talking of places they have been to and/or want to go to. But prior to arriving to these places, we suffer the arduous process of getting in line and waiting at the airport or bus terminal.

As someone who has to take flights at least twice a year, I have had my fair share of waiting.20130303-001451.jpg

Waiting to check-in.
Waiting to board.
Waiting for the “fasten seat belts” sign to go off.
Waiting to be greeted by a loved one or a new adventure.

Then going back from these trips,
I wait again.
Waiting to check-in again.
Waiting to board again.
Waiting for the “fasten seat belts” sign to go off again.
Waiting to go back to reality.

I’m used to it, though.
One can’t help but find ways of making the waiting times bearable and even fun.

You have no choice but to do so.

You learn to endure all the waiting because what’s at the other end is and will be totally worth it.

Never looking back. Always looking forward.

I took this photo of my friend while we’re on the way to the Sentosa island in Singapore last February 2012. This is the walkway to the island from the mall, Vivo City.
