Sex, love and everything in between

After obssesing on Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele's sex-love relationship, I've found 2 new books worth reading. I am still on the first few chapters, I must say, I'm loving the story. I'ts a bit 50 Shades-ish on the sex- love and billionaire part, and oooh, the guys are really irresistable. What can you say, damn lucky gals, getting top notched guys, haha. But hey, let's give Eva and Gideon Cross a chance. Both with f*cked up pasts, they will find a way to move on and have a better future for both of them.

Any thoughts on Sylvia Day's Bared to You and Reflected in You?

The Higher Taste

I borrowed the book from my friend joyce, it was just so ironic that we were having steak while reading this, hehe.

It was just really wierd, according to the book "animals cry when we eat them", the author is Indian, so he wrote about the LAWS of KARMA and how reincarnation are related to vegetarianism. The author also pointed out that meat-eating and killer diseases are connected. And vegetarianism would be an advantage to us, especially in the economic aspect. Well, he really has a point, with our economy today, we could really save a lot of money once we switch from eating meat to vegetables only (i think i can't :)) ).

The book really pointed out that healthy eating would be Karma-free eating.

try reading this book :)

In human society, if one kills a man he has to be hanged [or punished]. That is the law of the state. Because of ignorance people do not perceive that there is a complete state controlled by the Supreme Lord. Every living creature is the son of the Supreme Lord, and He does not tolerate even and ant's being killed. One has to pay for it.

Hong Kong - Macau

For first timer friends, here's a suggested 3days/2nights guide if you wanna travel to Hong Kong and Macau. Especially when you on a tight budget and still want to maximize your stay. 

I took the time to update all the prices so that you'll know how much pocket money to bring and I also added instructions on how you will get to the certain place.

 Hong Kong's  transport system is really crazy. every station is connected to another station, you might get lost. :))

MTR line

Cafe de Coral

Ooops, before I forget, this is one of my favorite places to eat in HK, it's like Jollibee, it's all over the city. It won't too hard to find. Cafe de Coral is in every building and every corner of the city (exagge, haha). There are lots of choices to choose from, the food is really delish.

Budget; HK$ 60 -HK$ 125

We really had fun in our very short stay. Every one had US$ 500 as pocket money which we mostly spent on food and H&M. haha. 

Here's the fun part: BUDGET!

* to save more moolah with Disneyland and Ocean park, i suggest that you buy tickets at the airport or at your hotel. Hotel travel services will offer you discounted ticket prices and free transport to Disneyland and back.

The Philippines in 2 minutes

After watching The Department of Tourism's promotional video, I realized that I've been missing A LOT. I've been in and out of the country and almost forgot that we have these places and attractions to see around.

This vid inspired me to explore more and more places within the country.

Is it really "More Fun in the Philippines"?

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Have you guys seen this video? Isn't it AMAZING or what?! 

After checking this out, i already knew what I want for Christmas. I'm not a techy dude, but hey, with features like those, who won't be tempted to get one?

This "phablet" (phone + tablet) has a 5.5" Super AMOLED screen, beat that Apple. The new S-Pen is also an innovation, the Samsung guys re-designed the previous model's stylus. 

I really liked the photo editing and multi-task feature. I can't wait to have one, though i'm not yet sure of it's retail price since it was just launched here in the Philippines.

For the complete specs of this Samsung's new phablet, you may check it here.

Working on it.

I'm now into blogging. It's twitter's fault, micro blogging only allows users to post 140 characters or less, annoying ayt? That's why I am now going mainstream blogging. Haha. Since i've been talking about twitter you can mention or follow me, just click here. (Promote lang)

Going back, i'm still trying to work on my page. Hassle, i'm re-visiting my HTML code knowledge to make this blog awesome. Lol

More blogs to come, hope you guys take time to read and share your thoughts. ๐Ÿ˜Š
