The Good Things of Travelling in a Cheap yet rewarding way! (Philippine Edition)

Hello there dear readers! It was a sunny day here in the Philippines and the weather started to be cooler compared from the previous months we had.

I have visited some famous tourist spots and I can say that it was fun because you can meet people from different walks of life. Their thoughts may enlighten you on how you deal with your life and eventually they can make you understand other cultures as well.

I am deeply in love with a Man named (Y.I) let’s just name him Yoshi.I. and he is now miles away from me. We have been together for almost a year now and I can say that meeting him was one of the happiest moments in my life. We have traveled together and seen things that are a little bit different from his culture. I hope that travelling together will make us understand the world and our thoughts.

Okay! Going back to the topic, travelling might be a little troublesome for some people because they have a lot of things to consider like budget, accommodation, weather and time. Travelling should not be expensive but rather affordable and simple.

You don’t need a high-class hotel if you are a frequent traveler  because you will be just staying for just a limited period of time. You are there in that place to see the beauty of nature and also the beauty of the local people.

Here are some useful Applications/websites when you will be travelling here in the Philippines.

Which I can recommend.

1. ENJOY AN AFFORDABLE ACCOMMODATION THOUGH Travel Book (http://www.travelbook.ph/

Why I like this website is that they provide discount prices for hotels all over the Philippines. If you are from the Philippines and you don’t have a credit card, you can pay it via over-the-counter payment through supported department stores and payment centers. All you need to do is to navigate the website.

2. Safe and Honest Transportation in Manila ( Grabataxi)

One of the things that makes tourists worry in the Philippines is safety especially for taxi cabs. Well, say hi to Grabtaxi one of the most reliable Taxi Applications.
This Taxi application is just like Uber but I haven’t used Uber so I have no idea which is better. But this Taxi Application is by far the safest one that I know. Here is the website (http://grabtaxi.com/manila-philippines/) or you can also download the application from Google Play and App Store.

You can also try riding with Doroteo Ohavo Jr. The most honest Taxi Driver in Manila. He usually roams around the night in the Quezon City area and I used to be one of his regulars especially when I had my duties in the Hospital. You can be assured that you are in good hands with this guy. You can also read all about him from this website (http://www.rappler.com/rappler-blogs/katerina-francisco/88792-honest-taxi-driver-jhun-ochavo) Just text the numbers in the Pamphlet.
Here is his Pamphlet.

3. Cheap Restaurants around Manila
All you need is to have an access through the internet to navigate different restaurants in Manila or in the Philippines you can just check those here in these websites.

Always remember that TRAVELING GIVES YOU NEW EYES TO SEE THE WORLD.

Another Levitation ( Defying Gravity)

Natsumi Hayashi’s Definition of Levitation

She says that a JUMP, is composed of many movements. And those who goes up must come down. Natsumi Hayashi does not call the photos she posted on Yowayowa Camera Woman Diary “jump shots”.The Levitation photos were suppose to emphasize the natural flow of time, said Ms. Hayashi, who usually shoots with a shutter speed of 1/500th of a second or faster.

 

TO LEVITATE is to dance in the Air in a vacuum of time and space.

Here’s some steps to get the Look

Clothing can move in a way that reveals the fact you are jumping so that is something to keep in mind. Think about tucking in your shirt if it appears too loose. Keeping your hair in place with lots of gel and hairspray can help or simply wear a hat.

WHAT YOU NEED
Camera (preferably that has a self-timer)
Tripod or something similar

HOW TO CAPTURE YOUR OWN LEVITATION PHOTO:

  1. Setup your camera on a tripod, or have an assistant get in position to take the photo.
  2. Set your camera to use a fast shutter speed – fast enough to freeze motion (such as 1/500 or faster).
  3. Set your self-timer to take the photo (if you do not have an assistant).
  4. Jump off the ground or step off an object at the exact moment the camera is about to take a photo.

* It takes a lot of practice to get the perfect shot. So, hang in there and have patience. ^_^*

LET YOUR IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY work and soon you’ll be able to create a masterpiece like Natusumi Hayashi’s Levitation Photos.

Mt. Fuji “Shibazakura” Flower Festival

life to reset

If there is one thing that best represent  Japan’s natural beauty, it has to be the highest mountain- Mt. Fuji.   The 3,766m symmetrical cone shaped mountain has inspired poet and artist for decades, where it was often depicted with the top- half covered in snow.

My first visit to the mountain was last year, during the hiking season where the  picturesque snow-capped was gone.  I was a bit sad to see the mountain on its “ordinary” state, so I promised to myself that on one fine day, I shall return to Yamanashi prefecture, to see the mountain on all its glory.

To view the mountain requires exceptional timing and preferably “sunny, clear” weather condition. So, I was checking out the weather forecast almost everyday, as I don’t want to waste a 3 hours commute to the unpredictable spring season.

Last Sunday was just the right day that I was waiting…
