A few days ago I went for a short trip in Calgary, Alberta… to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday. The trip includes me and my family wherein we watched the Stampede parade, explore Banff again (its beauty is always stunning), shopping galore and meet my old folks from high school. Please see the video above to see the highlights of my trip!
For my last road trip before another academic semester starts, my boyfriend and I along with his siblings and friends went on a road trip to Alberta.
Alberta – is a province close to where I am from (Saskatchewan). Unlike my place, according to Wikipedia, “its landscape encompasses mountains, prairies, desert badlands and vast coniferous forests. It has more than 600 lakes and rich mineral deposits”. So far, given that both are prairies, I find Alberta’s cities and roads a lot like Regina/Saskatoon. The only difference is that Alberta is more industrialized and established when it comes to their economy as evidenced by different landscapes and trademarks present in the province due to their rich mineral deposits and worth visiting tourist spots.
“Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you”
Those are words that I used to hear from an Alicia Keys song that was popular when I was in grade school. A song so familiar, that I could sing when played on the radio. I never really bother to read the lyrics or ponder about its meaning. Like any other Korean song, I just liked its tune that I memorized the song without really knowing it.
Once in a year, my family and I book our tickets and pack our bags to travel to new places and meet new people. While last year we went back to the Philippines, this time, we went to the USA. Yes! I haven’t been to the States, but since we got our Canadian passports already, we went to Canada’s closest ally.
We pretty much went to 8 states, but only get to spend our time in Boston, New York, New Jersey, Washington D.C and Pennsylvania. While we had stopovers in some states, I couldn’t get up and figure out our location because I am always sleepy and nauseous whenever I am a passenger in any vehicle. Yikes!
According to my favourite celebrity blogger, Nikki Gil,when traveling there must be a common purpose for the trip. That said, for our Boston trip, we decided to shop right away- it is always easier to save than to regret especially for once in a lifetime journey.
Every time the year turns to February, there is always a thought/day/event attached to it-Valentine’s day! The month of flowers, gifts and loved ones. My Valentine’s day went well, it won’t be the same without having to spend the day with Ryan, my boyfriend. This is our third Valentine’s day but as cliche as it may seem, it still feels like the first time.Read More »
My boyfriend got me a Polaroid Cube last June 2015 for my birthday since I was also booked for a getaway in the Philippines. I was just scrolling through my feeds when I saw a Polaroid cube+ ad. Basically, it is the updated version of the Polaroid Cube, which was launched last year (or maybe 2 years ago).
