Of Traveling and Writing: A Night out with Meet Manila & Friends

July 20, 2012 34
Hey Everyone!

Just wanted to share what Budget Biyahera did over the weekend, as Ms. Ysobel, Aix and the rest of the Meet Manila team invited me once again to another awesome event. It was actually a collaboration of Writing Manila with 4 university organizations -- and I was oh-so humbled to be asked to share about traveling and blogging (eventhough I really sucked in public speaking!) with a very fun crowd. =P The venue was set at Conspiracy Garden Cafe.

My 7 Super Shots

July 08, 2012 43
I already heard about the #7SUPERSHOTS trending a few months ago. So this made me want to join right after seeing the compilations from some of the blogs that I followed. But in order to participate in this super fun activity, one must actually be tagged first. Well, as for me.. no one was tagging me! *LOL* But when a fellow travel blogger (Francis of PALA-LAGAW) finally asked if I wanted to join, of course, I immediately said "YES"! Oh, and if I may add.. fellow blogger Edmar of also tagged me sometime ago! So thank you Edmar! :P

Anyhow, to continue on with my excitement to finally be a part of this game, let's start with...

Makes Me Think...
Window of the World, Shenzhen, China (April 2010)

A few months ago, I wrote something about 'turning my rejections into a positive'. It was about getting rejected for the third time. If you must know, I applied countless times for a US Visa, yet I got denied over and over. I actually thought about visiting Canada instead, since friends advised that it was easier to get a visa from that country. Just maybe, it can be my first time to fly via Air Canada when given the chance to travel in North America. Anyway, this specific photo made me think if I'll ever get the opportunity to see this part of the world. I was already excited when I saw this miniature structure of the Statue of Liberty in Shenzhen's Window of the World park. But of course, I wanted to see the actual one in New York City! 

Takes My Breath Away...
