Kyoto: Reversed Tokyo

Whenever I reminisce my visit to Japan, my mind would first drift to that day spent in Kyoto. From the awesome travel via the very famous bullet train; to seeing Mount Fuji during to ride; definitely, Kyoto is the place to be. One will definitely be captivated by the city’s richness in culture. Temples, green, nature, these are the things you will definitely appreciate when visiting this city. Something which is too different from the vibrance of Tokyo.  Here, you will appreciate the abundance of trees than the strom lights along the street. Here, you will appreciate a number of magnificent temples than concrete and elaborately designed architecture. Here, you will appreciate the Geisha performance than that of the Jpop culture. Here, you will love the quietness than that of the lovely noise.  Here, you will feel like you can live simply and happily. At least that’s what this city has gotten me into feeling and thinking.

Arigato Kyoto. Til I visit your kingdom again.

Gaga over Gaga

For the past days, all I see on my facebook feed is Lady Gaga. From her being engaged to the hottie Taylor Kinnie to her performance at the Oscars. Definitely, she's the talk of the whole universe. Why wouldn't she be? She's just simply AH-MAZING. I have been her fan the moment those Blonde Full Bangs danced around the Poker Face video. I know from the start that she's a great artist even with her  unusual style and crazy video concepts. She's great period, full stop. And this Sound of Music Medley of her has just proven everyone that she's one of the greatest artists of our generation. Besides the fact that she's dang sexy and beautiful. 

Here is her outstanding performance at the Oscars everyone is talking about. Let me join the bandwagon and share it again. and again... and again...

On Top of the World (literally)

Speechless. Blessed. Amazed. 

These are the words that came to my mind after that 30 minutes flight to the highest point in the world, Mt. Everest.

When my friends and I booked our flights to Kathmandu, we never thought of even stepping at the foot of Mount Everest; having only four days to check out the city. Kathmandu has a distinct beauty I would tell in another blog entry. This entry is dedicated only for the experience worth more than what I have paid for – to see the peak of Mt. Everest. Yes, if you are visiting Nepal and don’t have time to trek, or energy for it, you can take the Everest Express worth 200 USD to go to a ride of a lifetime. You will be riding a small plane that will take you to see the peak of Mount Everest and the rest of the Himalayan range. I could say, that plane ride is literally the best so far. I thought seeing the Alps from my flight last year to Munich is  pretty cool, this experience is beyond anything words can describe. 

Okay, I am blabbing again but dang! I am still having goosebumps whenever I relive that experience. I am sharing some grainy photos and a video but I am telling you, you need to experience it yourself. 
Mount Everest is not only for the braveheart; but also for those with big dreams. 

Been Here!


Yey Baby!
