Photo Diary: Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong Disneyland; Richel Goes Places

The Disney princess in me was so elated once we arrived at Hong Kong Disneyland. I felt like I was going to cry because I’ve never actually thought I’ll be able to visit this place when I was a kid. It’s so amazing to see the fruits of my hard work (and my parents’) as I stepped foot on the place. I really felt like the happiest girl on Earth. Okay, enough drama, but I felt like I accomplished something back there.

Lost in Hong Kong: Culture Shock at the City of Riches

Lost in Hong Kong; Culture Shock in the City of Riches; Richel Goes Places

I don’t think I experienced culture shock as much as ever than when my friends and I visited Hong Kong for 4D3N – we just got back yesterday! That’s saying something since I already spent a few months in some other Asian countries other than my home country, the Philippines. We pretty much got over the culture shock in the middle of the trip but it was a fun conversation we had during our first night in.

2016 Travel Plans

2016 Travel Plans

Hi guys, I haven’t done a life update post in forever. As you might have noticed, I have been posting so irregularly and inconsistently these past couple of weeks. Work has been busy, I’ve travelled a bit on the weekends, and I went back to another hobby that is frankly taking up so much of my time. I won’t talk about that other hobby since that’s more of my guilty pleasure – but I’ll say that it sure helped my English skillzz.

I’m going to share with you some of the things I did that helped me save 100K. I actually debated posting this one but you guys reacted so positively on this post I made last month that’s about saving/earning more money.

Pinto Art Museum; Richel Goes Places

I’ve never been to an art museum. Ever. Until now. The events that led me to plan this trip to Pinto Art Museum was actually seeing my colleague’s photos of the place on my IG and FB feed. And they are just so beautiful. Which led me to Google… and the rest, as they say, is history. My trip has been delayed for a few times because of work but my friends and I finally stepped foot on the place last Saturday, September 19.
