A few days spent up north in Laoag City, Ilocos Norte. Exactly, my second time in Ilocos Norte but first time in Laoag City. What more can I say but the place was fascinating to explore and photogenic, my phone couldn't stop taking photos as evidence.

Sifting through photos I took when I was in Bangkok I collected my favorite ones. Days before my birthday last November, I flew to Bangkok via Access Travel and Tours, and explored parts of the cities which I haven't discovered. It was a breeze to travel with Access. I've been to Bangkok couple of times but solely I dedicated that time visiting elephants, temples and a Santorini inspired park.
During my stay in Bangkok, I got to experience the Chatuchak weekend market. An hour wasn't enough to roam around the 27 acres of land nearly 15,000 shopping booths, clearly my legs were aching when I went back to the hotel. From the daily shopping habit of going around Central World and Siam Paragon, I decided to do the tourist thing to visit the Madame Tussuads wax museum. Extreme familiar faces of celebrities seen and yet I have to share about it. Just in time when I was in Bangkok they were celebrating their Loi Krathong festival. It's a way to pay tribute and gratitude to their Goddess of Water. I took part of it by searching for a nearby river from our hotel, bought a hand-made krathong, decorated elaborately of flowers, made a wish and set afloat it on the river.
Daytime happen when the city streets I've witnessed would always be filled with vendors and clamorous tuktuk rides. Nighttime would bring extreme artificial color of lights as I dance my way to experience again the Bangkok night life scenes in Thong Lor.
Clearly enjoyed Bangkok. I promise to be back. If I haven't convince you enough, I hope my photos did.

Hello Paradizoo, you've been a delight to visit! Morning in Tagaytay and just like that the sun rises amidst paradise of flower, vegetable and farm animals. I have every intention of showing Paradizoo and Residence Inn captured through my phone and simultaneously posting instagram photos. If you happen to stalk me on instagram @carissainez, you may have witnessed my situation.
For a place as grand as this, you have several options of wandering around the flower and vegetable farm or maybe yet have a getting to know with the farm animals. I've been frequently visiting Tagaytay and only my first time to see Paradizoo, and what a way to spend a weekend surrounded by animals. After Paradizoo, a quick shuttle ride then I found myself at Residence Inn. If I saw deers and camel in Paradizoo, I got to discern visually lions and tigers at Residence Inn. Surely you wouldn't wanna miss that!
Read closely, you can witness Paradizoo yourself for free! Follow and send me a tweet over my twitter account @carissainez indicating your email address and the number of people you are with and I'll send you passes! This passes would last up to March 2, 2014. Fill in your curiosity of wanderlust and see Zoomanity Group.

Through my photos captured by my phone, Instagram aside, I intend to display a colorful insight while exploring around Enchanted Kingdom. Like Disneyland, Enchanted Kingdom gives me an out of body experience, and an overpriced dart throw game that ended up no reward of an oversize stuff toy. This amusement park operates late in the morning up to nine in the evening. If you don't mind kids running around the vicinity then going on a weekend would not be a problem.
Ferris wheel and carousel in particular gave me the most calming sensibilities while feeling the breezy air on my face. In juxtapose to the calming ride, the Space Shuttle (roller coaster) was predictably amusing, of course. My body was in pendulum motion when I agreed to ride the Anchors Away. The ride designed like a pirate ship swings back and forth in motion like a pendulum clock. Witnessed kids screaming their lungs out, almost throwing up, as the ride swings up to 70 degrees in angle, fun right?.
