At New South Wales

On to NSW this time.

1. Bondi Beach
We were only able to walk along Bondi Beach to Tamarama. But if you were to go all the way, it would take around 11km to reach Coogee Beach.
This view though. Breathtaking. It’s straight out of the camera. Looks edited, but it was just gloomy over there and sunny over here.

At Victoria

Everybody’s gone to live in Australia, at least people I know. Since then I’ve been really curious about the country, what it offered that made everyone come here. And now I understand why. And boy, do I want to stay here for… ever? In terms of convenience, it’s pretty much the same as Hong Kong. But what I really loved was the environment. Fresh air! And super polite Aussies.

Just Outside of Shanghai: Part 1

Missing China now more than ever just because of the blazing heat I’m feeling right now. Whew.. It’s been seven years since I last went to Shanghai to study Mandarin for barely a month. Nothing’s changed (at least I hadn’t notice anything). There’s not much to do except to eat, so we went for some out of town trip for a few days.

Intramuros Tour with Bambike

I’ve ranted about the sun and the heat on my previous posts and yet I bike. Haha!
So my cousin found this activity online about touring around Manila with a bike. I have lived here my whole life and yet I never really visited Intramuros. All I know is that it is a historical place in which most of World War II took place and some events of Dr. Jose Rizal’s life (Philippine National Hero).

One thing that really made us go is the bike itself called Bambike. It’s a bike made out of bamboo! A frame would cost around Php 40,000 (USD 900). They said it has a natural suspension and looks pretty tough too. Bikes are first come, first serve so it might be a good idea to go there earlier.
