Manila is a fascinating place. The contrast between the rich and the poor hits your right when you step into the city. I’ve not had the opportunity to see much of the remaining of the city mainly due to time constraints but one thing I’ve noticed is they seem to have a large number of […]
I recently made a quick trip to Ohio and Seattle. Didn’t have any time for sightseeing, didn’t really visit downtown Seattle either. BUT I did manage to get one day of good weather in Seattle and happened to stay at a hotel by the water. Here’s what I got to see. This was my ride […]

Went house shopping. Enjoy.
