Asian n’ Cajun 2 Boiling Seafood Restaurant at Fair Oaks, California

Saying good-bye to our loved ones in California and Nevada made me feel sad and emotional. I guess, we all have these emotions for a reason. Our two-week vacation in these two beautiful states went by quickly. Surely, I will gonna miss a lot of things if we get back home. And to cap off our last but memorable night in California where we stayed longer, my brother-in-law Noel, invited us for fresh boiling seafood treat in a Chinese restaurant called Asian n’ Cajun 2 Boiling Seafood Restaurant.

Our first unforgettable visit in San Francisco, California (with tips and travel guide)

I was so thankful that we were granted a multiple US Visa by November of this year. However, we have no plan yet to visit my sister who is based in California and my niece in Nevada because airfare is pretty expensive for one family. I content myself imagining ourselves traveling to a sprawling country teeming with many amazing tourist attractions and staggering natural beauty. America is indeed, a dream destination. Little did we know that by the end of December this year, we would be getting in the United States on an abrupt visit!

welcome to USA!

Welcome to the USA! Thank you Gie, Miko, and Derrick for this wonderful trip.

Soi: Eat Thai. Love Thai. Yummy Pad Thai

My hubby and I craved for ramen after we bought grocery goodies in Hypermarket in SM Mall of Asia. However, as we walked on the Ground Floor just outside Hypermarket, my eyes suddenly beamed with excitement upon seeing this Thai Restaurant called Soi. This is in time with my upcoming trip to Thailand this January. I tried Thai food in Singapore but missed out on the famous Pad Thai. I will try this in Soi and see why travelers visiting Thailand are craving to taste this dish.

yummy Pad Thai!

Apo Whang-Od, the Signature Tattoo and the unforgettable trip to Buscalan

I am an art enthusiast (from sketching, painting, drawing, photography, anything that my hands can do), the reason why I admired and appreciated Apo Whang-Od, the woman of ingenuity. She caught my heart that is why when I was invited by Cy (my favorite travel buddy) to visit her place, in a flash, I said Yes! After all, I waited for years to meet her and set foot to tattoo village in Buscalan as well.
