Painting in the Dark: Sunrise

As much as I love sunsets (see my post on sunsets here), I hold a separate love and appreciation for sunrises. There’s something about breaking the stillness of the night. Through the years I’ve had the privilege of watching breathtaking sunrises. Here are some of my favorites.   On a plane from Manila to Dumaguete, Philippines…

A Masterpiece: Sunset

“You see, one loves the sunset when one is so sad,” writes Antoine de Saint-Exupéry on my favourite book of all time the Little Prince. As much as I love the book, I would have to disagree with him on this. Sunset is beautiful. It punctuates something- daytime, yet it also signals the beginning of…

No Filter Needed (Iceland)

Going on this trip is the ultimate dream come true, really. Having a honeymoon is a dream come true. To places you’ve always wanted to go to is a dream come true. And going there with the one is a dream come true. What more could a girl ask for? Just a few things to take note…

I always took pride in being able to travel by myself. Go backpacking even. This trip wasn’t one of them. For one, I couldn’t fit 11 days worth of warm clothes in my pink North Face backpack so I was stuck with this huge pink luggage, which I dragged across 6 cities in Japan: which…

One Night (Yangon, Myanmar)

It all started a little after sunrise on a Saturday. The coffee-stained boarding pass pretty much speaks for the rush and stress I had that morning. I nearly missed my flight! Nonetheless, I made it. The trip was meant to be a quick one for the long weekend. Little did I know it was going…
