2018 in a Nutshell

2018 in a Nutshell

In my head, I already have at least five different ways to start my 2018 year-end post. But now that I’m typing this post down, I can’t seem to remember any of it. Oh well, here’s to winging it and hoping for the best – which is basically the attitude I have all throughout 2018.

Looking back at my 2017 year-ender post, I see that I settled. Unfortunately for me, that’s also what I feel like I was doing in 2018 for some portions of my life. BUT, I also strived in other aspects of my life which I will happily take and is one of my goals for this year. It’s a year of ups and middle grounds, but overall, I was happy this year. I’ve been consistently happy for the past years and that’s something I’m very grateful for. To commemorate that, I’ll be sharing some of my 2018 highlights.

2018 Life Updates (Trips, Lasik, Etc.)

2018 Life Updates; Richel Goes PlacesHi, blog! It’s been a hot minute since I posted any updates. 2018 has been crazy busy and not in a bad way. I’ve been having a blast! There’s been a few major life changes and a lot of minor ones that are still on-going. I think I’ll go a bit more in depth about them in my next posts or in my 2018 wrap-up post. But, some quick updates below in no chronological order:

South Korea Travel Travel Guide

4D3N South Korea Itinerary Under PHP15,000

Korea Day 3 Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland; Richel Goes PlacesFinally, we reached the last post for my Autumn in Korea trip! Like my Hong Kong trip, I would be sharing with you my South Korea Itinerary. I’ll show you how to do it in 4D3N and how it can be managed under PHP15,000. Yes, that’s right – under PHP15000. This would be a mid-level travel guide – private rooms, private bathrooms, paid attractions, and all that. I would try to be as detailed as I could, and at the bottom of this post, you could get my detailed 5D4N Seoul, South Korea itinerary FOR FREE.

Korea Airbnb Accomodation; Richel Goes Places

My friend and her family arrived in Seoul on my second day there so I had to change accommodation that’ll fit all of us comfortably. This time, I decided that we try out Airbnb. It definitely helped our decision that there’s a lot of affordable options and we get PHP1000/USD25 discount then. You can also get $40 off your first trip by signing up here. Anyway, we ended up renting this 3 rooms, 2 toilets apartment in Namyeong area for three days. We ended up paying PHP11000 all-in for the entire stay! I think it was pretty reasonable.

Food Right At Your Doorsteps? Yes, Please.

Hong Kong Food DeliveryBe it hostel students, office-goers or even a group of friends celebrating a birday, food delivery services in Hong Kong offer you a with a platter of options. However, let me assure that they are not always as piping hot and delicious as they are advertised to be. Ranging from high-quality to not, food delivery services have to battle against time, quality maintenance, traffic and harsh weather conditions to deliver food to your doorstep or office. Hence, customers may have to face some blunders now and then. Let’s compare the stories of some food delivery biggies – Foodpanda, Deliveroo and UberEats.
