BLOGGED! Suburban Girl: Entering the extraordinary world of the Pinto Art Museum
-----
"Pinto" is the Filipino word for "door" and fittingly enough, entering the museum is like stepping into an entirely different world of unique visual wonders that stimulate the senses."
I have a confession:  museums do not appeal to me. (Cue: Collective gasp and raised eyebrows from art connoisseurs.)  Inasmuch as I would like to up my ante as a cultured being (haha), I'm afraid I lean towards the more indie...

BLOGGED! Suburban Girl | The people of Burma

"The Burmese are a people beautifully caught between traditions of the past and the threshold of present times. It's no wonder that in one corner, you will see women in longyis carrying fruit baskets or selling thanakas while in the other, you'll come across monks fiddling with their smartphones."
Pilgrims.  Monks inside the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. Like I said before, the Burmese are a people beautifully caught between traditions of the past and the threshold of  present times.  It's no wonder that in one ...

BLOGGED! Suburban Girl | Bagan: The land almost forgotten by time

"Our vacation was only for seven days but it felt longer with everything that we experienced. Rather than just going on two three-hour flights and a 10-hour bus ride, it felt like we traveled back in time to a land filled with stories of old waiting to be told." 
"Slumbook question No. 3: What's your favorite Bagan experience?" Two days after we came back from our Myanmar trip, our group was still inflicted with a serious case of vacation hangover.  Every now and then, one of us would...

BLOGGED! Into the cascades: A journey to Iguazu Falls

"After around 30 minutes of walking, we finally reached the heart of the park and got up close and personal with Iguazu's cascades.

I cannot emphasize enough how this work of nature is so A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  The vastness and energy coming from it was just breathtaking!"
"Poor Niagara!"  That's what United States First Lady Eleonor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed upon seeing the Cataratas do Iguaçu or the Iguazu Falls which is located in the Brazilian sate of Paraná. With 275 drops, this UNESC...

BLOGGED! Under the Ipanema sun

"At one point, I felt sad at the thought that the trip may never ever take place anymore.

Until last year.

One hot November afternoon, I finally found myself walking down the Ipanema beach basking under the glorious Ipanema sun. I was beside myself with excitement, drinking in all the colors in the beach whose popularity was also magnified by Brazilian bossa nova, Garota de Ipanema (Girl from Ipanema)."
"I'll walk down Ipanema beach, have my picture taken, then post it with the caption: Girl from Ipanema," my close friend, April, said.  "But that's MY idea!" I replied. "Fine, fine!  We'll both have our Girl from Ipanema phot...

BLOGGED! The virgin beach of Dinadiawan

"I HAVE to go there, I thought when I saw my friend's Facebook photos of a virgin white beach with blue waters that looked so alive under the winking sun. No photos can really do justice to this place but hey, one can try ;)"

BLOGGED! Suburban Girl | Myanmar: getting there, going around, and other amusing discoveries

"I remember Googling--as fast as my hands would let me--routes from Philippines to Myanmar the moment I saw the headlines "Philippines, Myanmar to sign VISA-free agreement" back in 2013. Coincidentally, a good friend of mine has had her eyes set on the Golden Land for quite a while too. Hence the start of a year-long planning for a trip to a place Lonely Planet calls "a living edition of the National Geographic, circa 1910"."
A Bagan wonder.  One of the many nameless temples in Bagan, Mandalaya, Myanmar. I remember Googling--as fast as my hands would let me--routes from Philippines to Myanmar the moment I saw the headlines "Philippines, Myanmar to...

BLOGGED! The colorful world of Selaron

215 steps covered with over 2,000 tiles from around the world created by one artist: the late Jorge Selarón. He was even once quoted saying, "I will only end this mad and singular dream on the last day of my life." 
"My tribute to the Brazilian people." That is what Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón called this set of world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro: the Escadaria Selarón or Selaron Stairs. I was like a kid in a candy store as we og...

BLOGGED! Wandering into Wanderland 

It was an unbearably hot day for a music and arts festival. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the experience--heat, sweat, hipsters and all ;)
"My bangs were, like, flat on my head, and they were, like, awful," tweeted my friend PJ using the hashtag he created (#overheardatwanderland) for the Wanderland Music and Arts Festival 2014. "Wanderland is set to fulfill y...

BLOGGED! Olá, Copacabana!

"It was as though Barry Manilow's song was on loop in my head as we stepped onto the Praia de Copacabana or simply, the Copacabana beach. I know, I know. What a cliche. But what can I do? I've been hearing about Lola since I was in my teens and to be actually setting foot on the famed beach in the famed song was just too thrilling!"

BLOGGED! A taste of the carnaval

"I cannot say enough how much fun it was! After all the dance numbers were done, the bouncers encouraged everyone to go invade the dance floor. And before we knew it, everybody in the whole gymnasium--performers, locals, people from around the world--were singing, dancing, and drinking!"

In Brazil, the month of March is all about one thing:  THE CARNAVAL! The country's annual festival officially kicked off last March 1-5.  And while it was nothing compared to the videos of the recent parades my cousin sent u...

Introduction
"You, dear friend, are Koryn. Same doe-eyed girl I met in a reggae bar in what seems like ages ago. You are comfortable in your craziness and staunch in your sanity. You are a tomboy and a princess and fabulous either way. You love fiercely, whether it be friend, family or otherwise. And yes, with wisdom far beyond your years, you are still learning. You know who you are. You are you." --Adam Mordo
