♥ (140): What to see in Da Lat, Vietnam (Day 2)

Hi guys! I am back with Day 2 of my Da Lat trip! If you miss out on Day 1, click the previous post or this.

DAY 2 - 22/01
It's our first and last full day in Da Lat so we decided to go on a tour using our hotel's service. But first, breakfast time! :) We went to La Viet Coffee which is a bit far from the city center but all good. We love exploring different places and trying out different food~  The moment you enter the cafe you will smell the aroma of fresh brewed coffee. Sucks that I don't drink coffee much. People go there for coffee and me? Watermelon juice LOL no joke. They also provide coffee tour so if you're a coffee enthusiast or just love coffee in general, then La Viet Coffee is there for you.

Hi guys! I know I've been MIA for the past week, but here I am now with a new blog post from my trip!! It sucks cus I keep on forgetting to take photos in landscape mode to fit in my blog... :( Most of them are taken on portrait mode so... :( You'll understand when you see it lol anyway let's jump straight into it! 

DAY 1 - 21/01 
We left Saigon at 7 am and arrived in Da Lat around 2 in the afternoon. The cold breeze welcomed us the moment we stepped out of the bus. I immediately fell in love with this place because of the weather; it's like New Zealand's autumn but much colder. We headed to our hotel (no photos of our hotel room, soz), napped for a good hour, glammed ourselves up, took a bunch of photos, and went out for late lunch.

Artist Alley because the owner is an artist (painter) and the restaurant is located in the alley :p

♥ (138): Wearing Filipino traditional dress in Vietnam

Hi guys! We celebrated the Spring Festival at Asian International School (the school where I teach at) and boy, oh boy was it fun!! We were asked to wear our country's traditional costume and so many students/teachers took photos of/with us :) In short, we became instant celebrities! It was so overwhelming to see students buying and enjoying Filipino foods and I couldn't be more proud of where I come from! Unfortunately I don't have photos of our menu because I was busy packing rice meals (adobo and menudo + rice) and as soon as the desserts arrived, the students flocked our tables! Anyway we had BBQ (that sold out so fast!), biko, puto with cheese on top (or like cheesecake but more delish), fruit salad, adobo, and menudo. If you're not familiar with those food just pls google it. Ty

Anyway here's me with my colleagues donning our traditional Igorot and Filipiniana costume. Aren't we all attractive? :)

♥ (137): Siem Reap, Cambodia from 6 years ago

Traveling was not really my cup of tea back then. I was scared to travel alone overseas and also, it costs a fortune. At the time I didn't know how to check/book flights - in short, I was a total noob. My traveling adventure started when I met my ex. We traveled to neighboring countries like Singapore, Thailand, and Cambodia.

I looked back at my Cambodia's album on Facebook from 6 years ago and the reason is because I want to be in the country again. Not in Siem Reap though, but in Phnom Penh. I have always been curious to see the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in person. But anyway, back to the point of this blog post, I'm going to give you a ride to Siem Reap, Cambodia in 2011.

♥ (136): First trip in 2017: Mui Ne, Vietnam

Hi guys! I started my 2017 with a bang!! I traveled to Mui Ne with my colleague, Sir Jao, on the 1st of January and boy was I excited as hell!! Mui Ne is in the Southeast Vietnam and it's a 6-hour bus drive (FUTA bus line) from Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City). 

There are so many firsts in this trip! I felt like a kid to be honest :P

1. Let's start with New Year. In my 26 years of existence on this planet Earth, it's my first time to travel on New Year's Day. This is one of the biggest holidays in the Philippines so why travel?! But since I was not able to spend the holidays with my family back home, why not go out of the city for once and enjoy my day off :)
