A trip to Hong Kong will not be complete without visiting a theme park.
Considering the weather, we actually almost gave up on the sun shining during our stay and were ready to make a detour in our itinerary; but on the second day, we were blessed enough by the sun and made the tough choice of choosing which one to go to!
Greeted by a copious amount of smog, I landed on the afternoon of a September in Changi. My dear friend, Yu Ling, waited for me so she can take me to her home in Yishun. It was barely an hour after my arrival that we had to jump to meet with Ade and get some grub. The grub we planned probably years beforehand until I visited again. If you ever get a chance to talk to them, never mention my name and the word ‘corn’ in the same sentence. Please, just, don’t.
Colorful, intense, awesome weekend! Made cool new friends, had some local food (lechon plus chorizo #bye) and woke up to the beat of Sinulog! Daghang salamat, Sugbu! Pit senyor!
I’ve always envied people who marveled at the beauty that is the Ilocano Region. Mostly because I am a frustrated traveler, but the bigger reason is because my maternal roots trace back to this place. Essentially, a part of my DNA was born there, and yet, long I remained only a spectator to my friends’ posts on Facebook, Instagram, etc.
