It’s 11PM and I just finished watching a bootlegged DVD copy of Crazy Heart but still I can’t sleep, something tells me to write this travel of mine in Dallas few months ago. I know, I know, I am always late with my travel journal, but what can I do when I’m working 12 hours a day, non-stop for four months? I made a promise this month that I’m going to write more of my travel stories that are way past due, some months ago and some were even two years ago like my NASA tour. Probably you may have noticed that I was keeping my promise. Doin’ good eh?
It’s been more than two years when I had my tour at the Lyndon Johnson Space Center – NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) located in Houston, Texas. NASA is an agency of the United States government, responsible for the nation’s civilian space program. It is where they train the astronauts. If you dream to be one, this is the place you’d like to see.
If you are planning to go to Boracay this summer and you’d like to book your stay at The Tides Boracay, then this article is for you. I will tell you how to save money if you want to stay in this modern-themed looking hotel.
The Tides Boracay is in the middle of D’mall located in Station 2 and I just booked 3 nights of stay for my Boracay trip next month. I just found out that booking directly to Tides Boracay website is really expensive. So here’s my tip to get a big discount.
I can’t wait for my recently ordered Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Wide Angle Lens. I thought about this for a long time and since my next vacation is coming up, this equipment will be a nice add-on to my equipment. This wide angle lens will be very useful on my vacation, its summer time so it’s beach time. Lots of sceneries, sunrise and sunset photos that will really produce great photos with this wide angle lens.
I was in Republic of Georgia in July 2008 and June 2009 for a business trip. While roaming around T’bilisi, I took some photos of the Georgian vendors. What I have noticed is that most of the street vendors are old people, and can’t remember if I have seen young vendors. You might probably see the young ones working in a shop or in a mall. Wait, I can’t even remember if I have seen a mall in Georgia. Well, they do have McDonalds.
Here are some of the photos I took while I was there for the past two years.
From the past, I’ve been invited to do some product reviews in Philippines but have to decline due to the fact that I work overseas and though I am frequent in Philippines, the review schedule don’t match my visits in Philippines. And few days ago, I was invited again but not as a product reviewer but this time as a Blog contest sponsor. It was my first time to be invited to sponsor a blog contest and at I was hesitant to say yes, but I finally did.
Why not? I’ve read so many articles about blog contests, it advertise the blog site who’s conducting the contest and also the blog or website of the sponsors. This is what I really need right now for my blog site, advertisement. I need more web traffic (visitors) and eventually increase my Google Page Rank which is in 3 right now.
The blog contest was conducted by Makoy Tayag who is an OFW in Singapore and the contest will start on April 1, 2010. If you are a blogger and would like to participate and win $200 as first prize, here’s his blog site www.makoyskie.com.
Good luck to all the participants and let’s see what this contest will bring to Digifotoblog.com.
Few days ago I showed you how to cook my favorite Tom Yam Goong and now let me tell you my experience in cooking Pad Thai. Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s national dishes and very famous with the tourists especially the noodle lovers. Pad Thai a dish of stir-fried rice noodles with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, red chili pepper, bean sprouts, tofu, shrimp or chicken, garnished with crushed peanuts, coriander and lime. Compared to the Philippines Pancit (Fried Noodles), Pad Thai have more ingredients and spices. The distinct taste of it, you’ll know it’s from Thailand.
Like what I wrote on my last article about my experience of Thai Cuisine cooking lesson at the Blue Elephant in Bangkok, I’m going to show you the recipe and some photos of that experience. Let me start with my favorite of all Thai dishes, Tom Yum Goong. It is the first Thai food I eat when I am in Thailand, and I tell you after the first sip, I feel like I am in heaven.
This was probably the best experience I ever had from my multiple visits in Thailand, a Thai Cuisine Cooking Lesson. I love cooking, but at this time I am in a place that I can’t really utilize my cooking skills and not so many of my colleagues and friends are aware of. But I do love cooking and have a good taste buds and can really implement it to my cooking. So, why don’t you join me in my experience of cooking Pad Thai, Tom Yum Goong, Green Chicken Curry, Beef Stir Fry and Pandanus Flan?
I’ve searched the internet which is the best cooking school in Bangkok that offers not just Thai Cuisine cooking lesson but also the reputation that it garnered through the years in the business. And not to mention the mansion is a century old and the elegant restaurant they have not just in Thailand but also in the Middle East, Europe and other part of the world.
My previous WordPress Theme was kind of a so so… I decided to change it and I wanted more personalized where my posts about my travel and photography really jive with the theme but that will cost me too much if I hire a Theme designer. So I bumped into this Theme and bought it for $70.00. Is it worth it? I think so, it looks more professional now and a little more tweak here and there, it’s perfect.
Well, as my visitor in this blog, do you like it? What kind of stuff do you like to see in this blog? Any suggestions and comments? I admit that I still have a lot of work to do to take this blog to be one of the top Travel Bloggers.
Please feel free to do so as I love to be critiqued and learn from it.
Happy trip you all!
