Since the news programs say that the storm will hit Manila tomorrow, I keep wondering if it would be enough to cancel our flight back to Seoul. Or if the flight to Manila would even takeoff or cancel it at Seoul. Or how difficult would that flight be if we'd still fly. Or where would we stay if it does get cancelled. Tomorrow would probably be a very memorable flight.

Sundays. Breakfasts.

"I miss having breakfasts with you though."

Coz I got my first pay...

I bought myself a digicam today (and a lot of other stuff to bring home on Monday) from Yongsan.

And that's the first photo in it, taken by the salesman--too shy to show my face and at the same time thinking over if it's worth the $260. (Was haggling for $250.)

Bloody Hell

As I've mentioned earlier (on the first day) we went to the tourist spots. (Will post my fave pics nalang.)

On our way to the Buckingham Palace, we passed through Green Park (if am not mistaken) and took my first hey-it's-autumn picture. Unfortunately my scarf was oddly tied.

Among the tourist spots (Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, etc.) my favorite is Big Ben. I just love it. (Photo: With Jila; soo windy)

On the second day we just went outside the hotel and wandered around. I shopped at Woolworths and Boots and bought Christmas cards as well. Then we went down one of the alleys to see what's a residential area was like. There.

By the third (and last) day, I met up with my tita Tere and her English/British husband, Uncle Chris; they took me to the shopping areas like Picadilly Circus, Bond street, Regents street, Oxford street, where there is practically everything you'd want from cheap souvenirs to LVs in Harrods. Went past by The Ritz so I snapped a photo for my sister, Notting Hill addict. Maybe next time I'll go find the Travel Bookshop (I learned that it actually exists at Notting Hill).

Walk, walk, walk. That's what you'd see most people do. Even if I've walked a mile I wouldn't have noticed. No sweat, literally, and clean air plus wonderful environment. So there were cars and then...

OMG. And I thought Sydney was cool coz I saw an old model Ferrari, but lo, an Enzo? A few more steps down a Lamborghini stops at the sight of the red light. Whoa.

And then finally it was time to say, "Goodbye, see you again next month," to both of them and thanked Uncle Chris for explaining to me which is which (see British Confusion).

British confusion

I'm in London right now and heck I got myself so tired yesterday visiting the most "tourist-y" (according to Alistair, the concierge at the hotel) spots available.

But up until now I'm confused. So London is a city. And England is? And Great Britain is? And United Kingdom is? Oh geez. Che I think I need your help on this one. Which one's the country? UK? As you see on my sidebar I've started putting cities under the "I've been to" part and I don't know how I'm supposed to add London. Like "London, England" or "London, UK"? It's usually city and then country format. Help.

Zombie in Hanoi

I wrote something already but it got crapped so I don't know what happened. Well anyway, I said I came back from Ha Noi but relatively wasn't able to do anything due to the tight security around the area for the APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting 2006 was being held on the days I was there. Wasn't able to sleep well too.

So much like a zombie, I fell into a deep sleep for eight hours straight when I got back here in Seoul.

I'm so happy that the broadband connection is up and running already at home; it's my first contribution to my family back in the Philippines. Now they won't have to spend for prepaid cards that are offer connections so slow. Now all they'd need is a router to have the connection on all three computers at home.

After My First Delhi Flight

Yesterday I just got back from New Delhi, India. Well I did nothing special except for I tried local food (unlike other layovers, I stick to McDonald's and KFC stuff). I was surprised that the climate's not so warm. It's like Tagaytay during summer season. Didn't know there was winter season in India.

For other news, me and my Chinese boyfriend broke up yesterday.

Sydney Adventures

I was drafting a blow by blow Sydney post but decided against it coz my blog would look like a history book or something. So, I'll just post some of my fave pics and move on. Haha, I have a Delhi flight tomorrow. By the way I just got back from Manila today thru Clark airport. Well actually except for November 1, we were at Baguio coz I bargain hunted for winter clothes and accessories/shoes. Anyway here goes the photos.

So me and my dongki, Mica, accompanied by her cousin ate Gae (not in the photo) went to this park to see some cute animals:

Kangaroos, well joeys actually. There were no big kangaroos for fear that they'd wrestle anybody near. Haha.

And that's me mocking a sleeping koala.

Meet my friend, Taz. As in Tazmanian Devil, in the flesh! Looks like a big rat. Haha.

Went aqua golfing and mini golf that night as well.

Of course we can't leave without seeing the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. And then we rode a ferry to Manly and went to the beach where all we had to do is remove our shoes and start enjoying the waves and the sand. Well it was 14degrees at that time so we look stupid wearing jackets but then we're at the beach. Haha. Til here. So sleepy.
