Osaka-Kobe 2016 + Kyocera Dome DxDxD Concert

This was already my second time in Kansai region, so I’ve decided to have my own detour at Kobe for this travel since I haven’t visited that city yet. Kyoto is a must-visit when you are in Japan’s Kansai region but since I’ve already been there last autumn, I decided to forgo even though there is still so much to explore.

Tokyo, Japan 2016: SHINee JAT 2016 Concert + Spring in Tokyo

I came back to Japan last spring for SHINee’s JAT concert. Luckily, the dates for the Tokyo stop coincided with lent so I had a chance to stay there for few more days and maximize my visit… well, maximize fangirling rather since I was there for all the days of their concerts in Yoyogi to buy concert goods xD

 

March 24 – Thu (Arrival)

Travel from Narita to Shinjuku or any destination in Tokyo has always been easy for me. You could either chose riding the train or their limousine bus. I always choose the latter since it’s very convenient to just ride a bus to your destination especially if you have a huge luggage with you. Saves you the hassle of bringing it every time you transfer trains, as well.

Product Review: Flytpack Travel Wi-Fi

Every time I am travelling abroad, I always seek help from google maps and other transportation-related apps (e.g., Hyperdia, Subway-Kr, MTR-HK). Google maps has been very reliable for me so far that I keep on checking on it every time I am roaming around a foreign country. But navigating these applications requires you to be connected to the internet otherwise you may not know where exactly are you and if you are indeed going to the right place. You may take the risk of just looking for public wifi everywhere or – the more convenient one – just rent one for your sole use.

Taiwan 2015: Lots of Foodtripping + My First Concert Experience in Taipei

Taiwan has always been one of the Asian countries I would love to visit ever since (aside from Japan and South Korea). I never had the chance before to go even though it was only a two-hour flight from Manila because of the hassle of processing the visa (plus, we all know the tension then between Philippines and China so I was kind of pessimistic that I would get it).

My love for Taiwan is not only for its culture and sights but also for its food~ in fact, I made a long list of food that I would like to try in the country.

SHINee-Themed Restaurant in Shin-Okubo, Tokyo

If you know me personally, read my fangirl musings in this blog or seen my twitter or facebook feeds for a while, you’ll definitely know I’m a ShaWol, short for SHINee World, the official fanclub name of SHINee. Yes, I’ve been their fan for quite some time now (since 2011). I don’t generally like anything KPop, just SHINee. I even had this prejudice with Kpop at first that they are just group of pretty faces without talent. Well, SHINee proved me damn wrong…

 

And with that… for every travel I did, I make sure I visit something SHINee-related.

Japan 2014: Exploring Sapporo and Tokyo (Part 2)

If last time we toured around Sapporo, this part will be mostly about Tokyo, the capital of Japan.

Tokyo is probably one of the famous cities around the world. With its advance technologies, clean surroundings and responsible citizens, no doubt it is one of the best cities, as well.

And since this is our first time in Tokyo, we wanted to make the most out of it. That is, excluding the all-day stay in famous theme parks on our itinerary that could eat most of our time. Our plan: to be able to visit as many famous sites as possible!
