My Travel Plans for the New Normal + Let's Travel Again Soon



We are indeed living in a very interesting time.

It didn't occur to me that I would be witnessing and surviving a global event that would soon be printed on History books that kids of the next generation would read about.

In the coming years, I would probably sound like my late grandmother who told me stories about World War II; while my stories would be about the Coronavirus Pandemic.

In dealing with the global pandemic, Filipinos—like the rest of the world—have had to embrace drastic changes in the way they live and work. With the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in place, much of the urban workforce have been compelled to work from home for the better part of two months.

Staying home makes me think of the most essentials - and that includes clothing.

Fukuoka is a lively city surrounded by mountains and ocean known for its variety of local flavors. The city is actually nearer to Seoul, Korea than Tokyo, Japan.

My Last Travel Before Coronavirus + Joining a Fan Girls Trip

My Last Travel Before Coronavirus + Joining a Fan Girls Trip


It was cold during the first month of December - much colder than I expected. I flew into Fukuoka, Japan to join my friends who were set to watch the Arashi Concert.

Here's an interesting introduction to this story. Sometime March 2019 (we were eating Japanese Curry at that time!), my friends asked me to help them pray for them to get a slot to the Arashi Concert. They always think that I am God's favorite (it is strange, but it is true - but I always get what I prayed for). 👼  I learned that Arashi is different from other boy groups - the ticket process is like a lottery and you have to be a member of the Fan Club.

You know what they say that prayers work. It does. 🙏🏻

Trying Out Ready-to-Eat Meals from Figaro and Tien Ma's (Food Delivery)

Trying Out Ready-to-Eat Meals from Figaro and Tien Ma's


The Enhanced Community Quarantine got everyone staying in the kitchen more cooking up recipes and dishes. I personally enjoy cooking and helping mom in the kitchen, but there are days when I just want to wake up and not worry about what we would cook. Truth be told, we missed going out and dining out. 

Thankfully, we can now enjoy Figaro and Tienma's Authentic Taiwanese Cuisines at home through combined delivery via https://thefigarogroup.ph/.
