Posted by on Mar 31, 2011 in Art & Photography, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

Happy 5th anniversary Hong Kong Disneyland! 5 years ago, Disneyland officially opened in Hong Kong!  This meant a lot to us Filipinos because we don’t have to go all the way to the US to experience the magical world of Disneyland.  Hong Kong is just 2 hours away from the Philippines and this meant, more happy trips to kids and… well, adult kid like me 😛  It’s more affordable...

Posted by on Mar 16, 2011 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Events, Featured, Hong Kong, Travel

Vince and I love going to Hong Kong and we came back last February 25, 2011 to explore the magical world of Disneyland.

I just broke down into tears again. I don’t even know why I was crying. Someone once told me that if you have a problem and you want to take the burden off your shoulders, you tell your story to as much people as possible. Then at a certain time, you will just realize that you just don’t care about this problem of yours. It reminded me of the movie “The Ring” and how the...
