What to Do in Bangkok in 5 Hours

I love to travel but I am the worst person to ask in terms of the how-to’s and to-do’s in a city or any place I have visited. In this case, I asked a little help from Rolex in order to come up with a guide: What to Do in Bangkok in 5 hours ? […] CONTINUE READING →

Summer Time Summer Plans

Rolex asked me if I really want to go the Philippines. Huh? Of course yes! Put aside the lechon but I want to see my friends and family, my mama most especially. But who doesn’t want to go to Europe? I wouldn’t mind living in Paris except that “merci beaucoup” is the only French phrase […] CONTINUE READING →

The Great Musandam Peninsula Part 2

I must still be having an extended seasick that I totally forgot to post the second part of our adventure to the great Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. According to my dear friend wiki (wink), geographically, the Musandam peninsula juts into the Strait of Hormuz the narrow entry into the Persian Gulf, from the Arabian Peninsula. The […] CONTINUE READING →

Uniquely Paris

Out of the blue before parking the car, Rolex asked me why the people in Paris looked like they just came out from the pages of a fashion magazine? I just laughed, perhaps I didn’t know my husband has some hidden interest in fashion. I don’t know the exact answer. It’s part of their culture, […] CONTINUE READING →

Masirah Unplanned Part 2

Who doesn’t want long holidays please raise your hand. I know someone, my boss. Sounds weird, no? It is common for expats not to find anything to do in this “Land of Kaugahan”. You just have to be adventurous and you will realize that it is not really that “uga” (dull) after all. Being a […] CONTINUE READING →

Masirah Unplanned

Masirah is an island off the East coast of Oman. Population estimated is at 12,000 in 12 villages mainly in the north of the island. The principal village is Dawwah in the northern part of the island. It contains an Omani air base and a fish factory, as well as a few small towns. Previously, BBC had a relay facility […] CONTINUE READING →


To make the long story short, I am currently here in Masirah Island, Oman with Rolex and some friends. I looooove looooong holidays and the beach. Another “nog-nog” (over-tanned close to toasted) me in the making. So far, we are having a blast. Cheers! CONTINUE READING →

Roma + Vaticano Part 2

As promised here’s a showdown of what Rolex is doing when we travel. I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of these monumental tourist spots of Rome & Vatican, ByBernard style. To see more ByBernard Photography, click here. Cheers! CONTINUE READING →

Rome and Vatican City Travel

I already missed travelling…the last time I traveled was 2 months ago (wink). Well the very reason that prompts me to think about going out for a break is the coming EID holidays which means an approximately 5-day-holiday. So I was browsing through our travel photos and realized that I haven’t really made a “decent” […] CONTINUE READING →

11 on August 11

 Time flies so fast! Today is officially the kick off of the “BER” months which only means one thing…Christmas is coming. So before I officially move into the 4th quarter of 2012, let me just share to you this video that took me by surprise (teary-eyed) when Rolex showed me the raw file. This is […] CONTINUE READING →

The Haunting

Something is haunting me. Before heading back to the Land of Kaugahan, Rolex & I made a 2-day stop again in Singapore. By the way, that freakin’ keyholder is still out of stock. I checked it out at LV while Rolex is busy capturing the magnificent Singapore Marina Bay with his lens. Apart from the […] CONTINUE READING →

Palawan Again

Palawan, here I come! It’s a planned trip that is on hold until typhoon Gener says goodbye. I kept on checking the weather forecast online. I am not really scared of turbulence while up on the air but someone is (winks). Seriously, its better to be safe than sorry. It’s going to be my 2nd […] CONTINUE READING →
