Dare to live the life you’ve always wanted. — Anonymous. I’ve recently visited Hong Kong, and it always feels like the first time. I’m always amaze on how fast things change and to new places I’ve never been to. Me and my girlfriend planned this trip for almost 2 months, as this is her first air flight. On the 4th of December, we book a grab car around 4AM straight to Manila International Airport. As we got off the departure bay, we see a long queued line going in the airport terminal entrance.

I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could. — Evel Knievel. I never knew traveling was something I would really want, but here I am craving for it. This is a continuation of my travel to Hong Kong this December, check out the first article here . We stayed in a place called Li Cheng Guesthouse in the district of Tsim Sham Tsui. I must say the place is clean and well organized, the room was a bit small but for me its good enough.

Hi guys, this log is more of a personal blog diary about my life. So here’s what happened, I left my daughter in my relatives place as I was going out of town…​ I slept around 2-3am yesterday and woke up by my dog around 10am, as she started licking my face. By the way my dog’s name was Lexus, named after a luxurious car brand. For me Lexus is like my own child, she’s the type of dog that is always lively and sometimes I think she has ADHD — always in constant need of attention. Its the first time I’m not gonna be around her for around a week. Actually I’m quite a bit concerned on what her situation, even though she’s staying at my relatives house. At 11am, I feed her with food and also took my meal. After that, I started packing my things going back to my place. I tried to take a na
