Man U's Coming Over to Asia this 2009!

Waaaaaaaah! I read something last night which completely shook my 2009 plans...
United will play four matches in Asia this summer:

China - Date, city to be confirmed
Korea - 20 July, Seoul
Indonesia - 24 July, Jakarta
Malaysia - 26 July, Kuala Lumpur

Tour dates provisional, subject to local & English FA confirmation.
I gotta go..I gotta go.... I really, really, really want to see my Ronny or at least his teammates...As of now, I have no funds for this. But if I cancel my Kinabalu trip this March, I can really go, but someone's going to kill me...Option 2 to avoid demise: Get an extra job!
Hay, sometimes I wish I was a little boring. Wanting something so badly can be stressful. Oh well, most of the time, it does make life exciting. Wish me luck! I will have to turn my world upside down to make this trip possible.

Just an update on this post. :)

By God's grace, I was able to watch Man U's exhibition game in KL without having to cancel my KK trip. I didn't get to see Ronaldo  because a few days before the exhibition game, he  announced his transfer to Real Madrid. It would have been great to see him in person but  Rooney, Owen and the rest of the Man U played so I can't complain. Never mind that I traveled alone in KL and that it was my first time in that city as well. I will never forget this escapade.  :)
My next goal is to see a live WC game. Brazil 2014 anyone?

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew

To kickoff 2017, I  returned to the Cordillera region with one of my closest friends, Jules. We wanted to take it easy  so we decided to try a couple of short but very scenic trails in Benguet I found online (References posted below). 

Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad,the capital of the province of Benguet  is less than an hour from Baguio city and features several accessible, scenic mountain trails - Mt. Yangbew (also known as Mt. Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly. :P
Since we were taking a super early bus ride,  (1:30 AM early! :P), we made sure  we got nice, comfy seats. Fortunately, with 3 days prior to the trip, we were able to book online via iWantSeats.

In five hours, we arrived in the City of Pines and walked towards Session Road to hunt for a hotel. Fortunately, a vacant room was immediately available at Benguet Prime Hotel so we were able to leave our bags.  We took our sweet t…

Part 2 : Bataan Adventures | Where to Eat in Bataan (Updated 2017)

Being an avid hiker and foodie, I've grown very fond of visiting  Bataan.  This province offers several hiking trails (check my post here) passing verdant forests and nicely decorated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a proper cup of coffee and affordable comfort food. It is also highly accessible from Manila via land travel, making it a good option for a short but rewarding out of town adventure. 

Here's a list of restaurants in Bataan where you can enjoy satisfying meals. 

ANGELITOS (Orani)
The restaurant's name which means little angels (male) was inspired by the owner's 3 young boys, Miguel (after St. Michael), Rafael and Gabriel.This 2 year old family owned restaurant has a homey ambiance and serves any type of food that the family enjoys.

Dishes are flavorful and priced affordably -100 Pesos above for the main dishes and 20 Pesos above for the desserts.Specialty includes, pork binagoongan and creamy tofu (my fave!). The restroom which has a mini garden is als…

1.  Footwear
Footwear should enhance your experience outdoors and protect you from injury. There are shoes designed specifically for hiking but I encourage you to research the mountain  first before purchasing hiking shoes. Will there be sections where you need to cross rivers? How long will you be hiking?If the mountain has a clear and established trail that normally won't take more than 4 hours to complete, you can very w…
