Coron Island, Palawan: Life's a Beach!

Sun...  Sand...  Sea...  Swim...  Snorkel...

That is how I choose to summarize my 4 Days / 3 Nights Coron, Palawan escapade November last year. The hang-over is still with me and every time I go to a beach or watch a travel show, I can't help but compare it to my Coron experience. Fair enough, huh?!

Oh well, I believe Coron Island deserves such impression and it shows on the increasing number of tourists visiting the place year after year. The funny thing when we rode the airplane going to Busuanga, Palawan, aboard Cebu Pacific's afternoon flight, 60% to 70% of the passengers are foreign tourists. We felt like we were the tourists in our own country. :)

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: A Savory Taste

I can still clearly remember in my mind what my Malaysian client asked me before we ate at a Malaysian sidewalk restaurant, "Do you eat spicy food?". Seriously, I don't know what to answer and it took me some time responding to her question.

Well I chose to answer with all honesty and told her that, "I like eating spicy foods but unfortunately my body cannot tolerate it". Sadly, I sweat a lot and my head gets itchy. She just smiled back and advised me to take off my coat and eat comfortably. :)

Negros Occidental: Mambukal Mountain Resort - Know How

TRAVEL DATE: May 12, 2013 (latest)

A trip to the Province of Negros Occidental wouldn't be complete without visiting the long-famous Mambukal Mountain Resort. Since I was a kid, Mambukal (Mambucal) has been first on the list for the vacation getaway place for the family.

Mambukal Mountain Resort belongs to the Municipality of Murcia and is located on the eastern side of Negros Occidental and 45 minutes travel from Bacolod City. It is being managed by the provincial government for it to be regularly maintained. The roads going to the resort are good so the journey is very comfortable and convenient.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Truly Asia - Part 1

TRAVEL DATES: April 26 - 27, 2013

Now I clearly understand why Malaysia's Tourism tagline is "Malaysia, Truly Asia!". Malaysia is like a melting pot of almost all Asian races and cultures. It is a country composed mainly of Malays, Muslims, Chinese, Indians, and Indonesians. It may sound complex but I guess because of time, different cultures had blended well already.

The capital city of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur or popularly known to travelers as "KL". From Singapore, you can ride a coach bus which is a 5-hour trip, or you can opt to ride a plane via Air Asia and it takes 1-hour. From Thailand, you can ride a sleeper train from Bangkok or book a flight for faster travel time.
