Crossovers and Ankle Breakers

This summer, I'm trying to practice the crossover. Honestly, I'm having a bit of a difficult time. It's the age, perhaps. And the vices. Back in college, I was addicted to breaking the ankles of...

Asian Travelers

April 12th, 2013 No comments
I consider myself a late bloomer when it comes to travelling.
That is while a lot of  my friends could go to Boracay or Caramoan or Atulayan or even Mount Isarog at the drop of a hat I would need, back then, a lot of prodding. Yep, it's just laziness.
Then age crept on and the realization that if I wanted to do stuff - it's now or never.
View from the Pyramid in the Louvre
I was also affected by an older pinoy who told me that when he worked abroad (Japan or Singapore - can't honestly remember) his greatest regret was that he didn't travel much and he didn't see that place as much as he'd like to.
Travelling is about experiencing new stuff. And there's a lot of experience to be had.






Mind you, travelling abroad is daunting. Getting visa's, exchanging cash, asking for help in different languages and the throngs of tourist like myself doing all of those things all at the same time. But what you get out of it is just immense.

 
















You learn to value the world we live in and you appreciate the uniqueness of our Asian heritage.
Why so? While all the places that you go to are just beautiful. It's the quirkiness of the people around you that in its own subtle way adds color to the experience.
Now, It goes without saying there's a lot of Asian tourist in Europe. They're mostly Indians, Chinese, Koreans, Japanese and ehem of course Pinoys! So you won't feel out of place in the big touristy places.
However, like most Asians, I've observed that most Pinoys keep to themselves and is quite reluctant to ask for help. There's this one family who is absolutely struggling to take a portrait of themselves - for God knows how long-  and we had to come and ask them if they needed help.
This was after one of my friends was approached by an American to take a picture of their school group. No fuss. No problem.
Speaking of Pinoys. We were approached by a famous pinoy singer/actress while in Paris and politely asked if we were Pinoy. haha... Syempre ang sagot namin eh 'Naku, Sorry po. Hindi ho eh" - just kidding.
She was so nice. Yun lang nga hesitant s'ya magpapicture cause 'wala s'yang ayos' and we didn't insist that much cause it's a bit jologs. We're in holiday. She obviously is on one as well so enjoy na lang.

Belgium

April 10th, 2013 No comments
It's election and it's summer time. Buti na lang nakaplano and nakaipon kami to go abroad. I really have to start saving it into something more concrete. May bahay na siguro ako or down payment sa Condo if I stopped travelling. Pero, there's gonna be time for that.
For now, goodbye muna sa kumakapal na daan sa Magsaysay (spell unnecessary election projects) at sa naglalakihan at nagkakapalang billboard ng mga candidato!
First, stop is my uber favorite restaurant. Mcdo! Bwiset na Sharon at KC., hehe. Love ko na rin tuloy ang Mcdo. It's cheap and really interesting what different food they have in different countries. No fried chicken or burger rice here.
It's probably the poshest Mcdo I've seen - below Marriot lang!






 The next definite thing to try in Belgium is beer. Here I've learned the proper (a.k.a European) way to serve it. No ice.
I think in the Philippines you would still need loads of ice though - mainit kasi. The other thing is every beer in Belgium has its own glass! Boy, there's the weirdest glasses you'll ever see. One them is shaped like a horn the other is shaped like a boot.
Beer is part of their culture. It's part of their meal at hindi lang pang tagay at pang lasing.

Waffles! Keeping it simple is the best way to go. The powdered one only cost 1 Euro. The most over 'accessorized' can go over 10!
Walang binatbat ang I-hop or Pancake house. It's crispy on the outside and soft in the inside though not too sweet even with the sugar.

Like any big cities in Europe they have a subway system. They also have a tram (above ground) system which has the smallest doors. I swear you have to walk sideways to get in and you can't possibly get in between the doors if you're on the heavy side. I'm fairly skinny and I thought I wouldn't fit. So dapat fit people lang sa tram.




Art in the underground system.

They speak Flemish and French. Times like this I regret not pushing through with learning French. There are a lot of English speakers but it would been better if I spoke their language pag magtatanong kung naligaw na ako.


If only we get our acts together we might progress. Pero, it looks like it's more of the same for the Philippines. It's either political dynasty or actor politicians. Kung pwede lang i-export ang political maturity. Baka kasi meron sa gift shop ng European Parliament (also based in Brussels)

Grassington Ice Cream by David Work They say summer is the best time to turn yourself into ice cream: be cold, then let someone taste you. I wonder if this is true.
