Like many other cities in South America, Bucaramanga also has its annual festival, called Feria Bonita. In September, various art performances are held all over town. It is an opportunity to watch Colombian dance and music, mostly for free. One of the shows I went to was a salsa concert in Concha Acústica, where everyone… Read More Dancing in the Rain (Bucaramanga Part 2)
A walk in Seoul can never be ordinary. That day I went to visit Seoul N Tower (also known as the YTN Tower or Namsan Tower, located in central Seoul way up in the Namsan mountain). It’s just one of those place that somehow is totally different from the rest of the city. Since it’s trying… Read More Locks Of Love
Did I just invent a word? I don’t know, but I think Instagenic was one of the appropriate terms to describe Bangkok.

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. Boosting with some french colonial architecture. A truly east meets west kind of city but with the kind of hustle & bustle of many south east asian countries.
Don’t you just love coffee? I surely do. Nothing in particular, since I’m no aficionado. But, I do appreciate a good cuppa anytime. For my last trip, I flew to Hanoi. In this city. I guess nothing is more welcoming than a cup of java. No wonder I managed to chugged down more coffee than… Read More Welcome Drink In Hanoi
All around me people are crowding up. A group of friends, sales persons, and tourists are all becoming one. Restaurant, bars, and clubs also line up on each side. Not forgetting the many shops trying to seduce you into consumerism. Somehow it feels like being in some Dorama tha I used to watch. Standing in… Read More Saved By The Glico Man (Osaka)
