It would not come as a surprise if this made it to most people’s bucket list of places to visit.
It was one of those moments when I’m totally lost for words…when grand, magnificent, great and other superlatives would not be enough to describe the satisfaction of being in this place. Surely, the long bus ride was worth it. It was perfect…the most trustworthy tuktuk driver…a nice hotel accommodation with the friendliest staff…a picture-perfect destination…good weather, etc. etc….. Indeed, this kind of experience is something that can make you be thankful for the life that was given to you…for the eyes that make you see, for the skin that feels the air as it touches you, for the heart that makes you feel…
It has always been a pleasure to be in another country.
There is always this feeling of being mystified from discovering things for the first time. When even the differences in culture and language cannot create a barrier for interaction. One day is indeed not enough to enjoy what Bangkok has to offer…but we’re satisfied. Great food – check, beautiful sceneries – check, grand temples – check, nice hotel – check, friendly people – check!
Last weekend we dined at Bizu Patisserie at Greenbelt 2… The experience was fine… the place was homey…the food were good… not five-star worthy but decent enough…I had issues with the freshness of the shrimp in my pasta but I was able to finish it in no time so I do not see any problem there! The price was more expensive than we expect but not too much though…
Razon’s Halo-Halo is probably the best halo-halo in town …at least for me…some find it overrated (too simple)…can’t blame them actually. But for me, the simplicity of this halo-halo is its selling point…the right amount of sweetness and creaminess.
After a long hiatus from eating this halo-halo (back when I was still working around the area of Robinson’s Ermita, we made it a point to drop by that small kiosk of Razon’s to have regular intake of their Halo Halo), we visited their Mall of Asia branch for lunch..
Their Halo-halo remains the topnotch halo-halo that it is known for…I just noticed that ice was not as finely crushed as they used to (not sure, if it’s just me)…as for the rest of the food that we ordered —NEVER MIND…the restaurant itself, way too cramped….let’s stick with the halo-halo, shall we???
Yesterday, my wife and I went to the Travel Expo at the SMX Convention Center – SM Mall of Asia. We were able to book airline tickets for our December travel…this time it’s not Boracay…
It has become a regular thing for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Boracay, this year will be an exception but no…not because we got tired of Boracay…it will remain my favorite place…the finest sands and the friendly hotel staff…the walking on the beach…not to mention, the food! Boracay will always be Boracay!
