Coffee lovers like me don’t need to consider anything before getting a good cup of what seems to be running in our system, it’s some sort of necessity which has great effect in our daily lives. It’s true when people say they cannot function until they get to take the first sip and smell the aroma of the coffee beans, at least for me because I’m exactly like that. You don’t feel whole and something is definitely missing if a day goes by without COFFEE. I bet you know what I’m talking about!
There’s only one compelling reason for me to drive from Pasig to anywhere in Quezon City and that is if I’m going to indulge, gastronomically speaking. I don’t feel the need to state the reason(s) why because it’s already obvious. Let’s just say we all face our worst nightmare everyday and anytime of the day and I do not have the luxury to waste my own time driving 2 hours for only a few kilometres. But hey! I just discovered that Maginhawa is not just a haven for foodies, but there’s actually more to this area than meets the eye.
While a lot of countries all over the world are planning and maybe still adapting with technology, Japan just had it all figured out. They are way ahead and they are the exact definition of the “FUTURE.” I maybe exaggerating but, I was there, I saw it, I experienced it firsthand. It amazes me to think what else in this world of technology could they be cooking up, Artificial Intelligence perhaps? But seriously, who knows what’s next?
Do you have any idea how amazing the internet works? Well, I’m an IT guy but am still amazed of how broad and smart the internet is. I have no idea about Enoshima and Kamakura at first and I only remember Google-ing places to visit in Japan near Tokyo when suddenly, Facebook is recommending places and showing me all sorts of things I need to know and go to when in Tokyo. Not sure if I make any sense, but yes! I found a must-visit area where you are surrounded with waters, beautiful landscapes, temples, food and definitely away from the hustle and bustle Tokyo and its skyscrapers.
Looking back at the moments that make up my 2017 I must say that it was, indeed, another eventful year for me. Not just for me, but for my family and everyone else and that’s for sure. Good times and bad times, no matter what happened we all deserve to congratulate ourselves for making it, yet again, to the finish line of this roller coaster life we are all riding in this year. And before this year actually goes to an end, the beach bum inside me wanted to take one last trip to seal 2017 the best way possible. And as much as I love winter season outside the country, truth be told that it’s always summer in my heart.
