But the thing is, we are required to have a valid visa before entering Kpoplandia.

Here are the steps and a few reminders on how to obtain a Korean visa successfully:

PHOTO DIARY: Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Yogyakarta, Indonesia


Yogyakarta (pronounced as Jogjakarta, or Jogja for short) is one of the most important cities in Central Java. Most of its corners are laced with so much history dated back in the early 13th century. Its heritage and culture are so vibrant that it is one of the most visited Indonesian cities by both local and foreign tourists. There are so many places to visit in Jogja - Jalan Malioboro where you can find the cheapest batik goods, the water castle, and other several geoheritage sites. As you explore the outskirts of the city, you'll discover more of the Java Island's history. Ancient temples like Borobudur, the world's largest Buddhist temple, and a UNESCO Heritage Site, and Prambanan Temple, the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia, offer a glimpse of the country's colorful past.

These are some of the photos I took during my trip in Yogyakarta last August 2015. We only stayed there overnight. I should be back there and explore more of Jogja.

Brand New Adventures



Happy New Year! I hope everyone's doing great. I'm so happy that finally, after working nonstop since the 20th, I've finally come home and celebrate new year's eve with my family. Last year, I have listed some of my plans for the year 2016. Despite being notorious, 2016 came out to be a great one for me. I have explored more countries like Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand, experienced new cultures, and met new friends along the way.

The year 2017 holds a great promise for everyone. I don't know what's in store for me this year, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be awesome!

PHOTO DIARY: Amazing Thailand

Thailand 2016


Last Christmas eve, while my other cousins were busy with the kids, my other cousin's wife and I had a deep conversation about one thing that we're both interested - traveling. Interestingly, she's from Thailand and obviously, we talked about the cultural differences between Thais and Filipinos. Traveling around southeast Asia made me realize that the Philippines is an odd man out in the group. I mean, we are the only predominantly Catholic country in the ASEAN region, and the western influence in our country is very apparent. It's like a third-world version of the USA!

Thailand will always be one of my favorite countries to visit. The food is delicious and cheap, the temples are stunning, and it's the perfect place for shopping! Let me share some of my favorite photos I took during my trip to Thailand. If only I had enough time, I wouldn't mind going back there and rediscover what Thailand has to offer.

Thank You, Twenty Sixteen



The year 2016 was a roller coaster ride. I have gained a lot of new experiences mostly in life but lost a few that were dear to me. This so-called adventure doesn't teach us to dwell and linger with our past, especially the bad ones, but to always to keep our steady pace as we gear towards the future. No matter how we carefully plan our paths, life will always give us surprises along the way.
