It’s been a while since I joined a sponsored tour, so I was a bit excited when I got invited for the launch of the “Manggad Kang Antique Heritage Tour” headed by Mr. Flord Nicson Calawag with the Department of Tourism Region 6 and the provincial government of Antique.

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese cuisine in the Metro, I could recommend several Japanese restaurant in the city.

“And at last I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you”

THE INAUGURAL LIGHT OF PEACE EVENT IN THE PHILIPPINES: WORLD PEACE THROUGH INNER PEACE

MAY 24, 2013
The Inaugural Light of Peace Event is the first annual and international event of its kind to be held in the Philippines.

Next destination was Wat Pho. I just crossed Chao Phraya River from Wat Arun for 3baht, and then walked outside Ta Tien Pier (N8) to the right for the temples’ entrance while to the left you’ll see the Grand Place. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to visit the Grand Place due to time limit, as I spent an hour in Wat Arun and another hour and a half in Wat Pho as the Monks were praying so I got curious and stayed there until their prayer ended.
On my second day in Bangkok, I planned to go temple hopping and tour the Grand Palace but sad to say my schedule was screwed up. Instead of starting the day early, I got stuck at the hotel the whole morning due to heavy rain. Hays! What a way to spend my day. But lo and behold, at around 2:30PM the rain stopped and Mr. Sunshine save the rest of my day. I grabbed my things and rushed out to make the most out of my afternoon.
