Exploring India 2009 – Manipal

After 17 hours on the train, we finally reached Mangalore. From here, we took a taxi to Manipal. It was already past midnight when we reached my sister’s apartment. Anyway, I’m glad she has reached the campus safely. Manipal is not a tourist destination. This is where my sister and few hundred other Malaysians study. I stayed there for 3 days, preparing...

Exploring India 2009 – Tiruchirapalli

They said all great journeys begin with a small steps and Tiruchirapalli (or Trichy) is more than a small step. Remembering the name itself is no small feat. Luckily it has a nickname or else I will end up calling it “teeroo-chappatti” or something like that. Stepping on the soil of this great nation means a lot to me. It was a dream came true and a...

My Black Beauty

Today I am gonna share with you something close to my heart; computers. You see, other than traveling, my life revolves around computers. That’s right. I am not such an exciting guy after all. Just a geek who loves the great outdoor. Not long after my first mistress kicked the bucket, my wife does the same. I don’t understand why do they have to leave me...

I was so tempted by the crystal clear sea water. To imagine how clear was the sea water, buy a bottle of drinking water. The scuba package costs 2,500 peso (RM185) which is the...

Falling in love with El Nido

Before I write anything about this place, I just wanna say; when I retire, I wanna stay here forever. That’s how much El Nido meant to me. Everything is so perfect in this quiet little town. I can never get enough of the sea, the lagoons, the people, the lifestyle, the seafood and the beaches of El Nido. What I like the most about this place is the unspoiled...

The journey to El Nido

After 2 nights in Puerto Princesa, we continued our journey to a small town call El Nido located at the northern tip of Palawan. The journey itself was nothing short of exciting. The cheapest way is by local bus and like the local bus I took in Laos, is has all the weird cargo from live chickens to motorbike. What I enjoyed the most during the more than 9 hours...

Puerto Princesa Underground River – A Natural World Heritage Site

OK, let us continue our journey in Philippines. The reasons why I wanted to visit this place is because it is listed in UNESCO World Heritage list (it has been nominated for the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” competition)  and the terms underground river sound like full of adventure (think Journey to the Center of the Earth). However it was not like that...
