Museum of Anthropology (MoA): Love and Learning

First post for 2017! I should write about my trip to Seattle last month but ...

For this first post, I am going to share with you some photos I have when Jomar and I visited the Museum of Anthropology in UBC (University of British Columbia). This is Jomar's last weekend in Canada for this trip and hopefully he could come back soon with a working visa or a Permanent Residence card.

Anyway, our date started with my dentist visit. It's my first dentist visit in Canada and it's reassuring to hear that my teeth are doing well. Plus, it's nice that our work health plan covers for majority of it so not as much expense. After the dentist, Jomar and I went to Granville Island to buy this texting gloves we saw and he purchased this cute Rubik's Cube keychain for him and his brother.

Then, we had lunch at Go Fish. The best Fish and Chips place in Vancouver. Amazing view, cold but clear Saturday noon - it's a perfect day for a date.

After enjoying our lunch, we took the bus to UBC. I was worried if we will get lost but we did alright. We spent 3 hours walking around the Museum, learning about the First Nations in BC and the special exhibit this weekend.

On our way home, we grabbed some dinner at the best Taco restaurant in Vancouver - La Taqueria Pinche Taco Shop.

Hoping to find time to blog more this year!

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Places to Visit in Singapore

Below is a list of places I visited while in Singapore.

The Merlion Park  A visit in SG won't be complete without a visit to the mascot of the country. A walk around the park will also give a magnificent view of the Marina Bay Sands.

ArtScience Museum The reason I went to Singapore is because of the Harry Potter Exhibition happening at the ArtScience Museum. In my opinion, it's so worth my time, effort and money. The souvenirs are quite expensive though.
