HUIS TEN BOSCH (PART 1)

Happy 2017! Can’t believe I have already spent two New Years  in Japan. As to celebrate, we figured out to revisit one of our favorite places in this country, Kyushu.

Believe it or not, this is not your ordinary street food. Fukuoka Night Street Food or Yatai (in japanese) is something that they are proud of and has been long known […]

FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN IN FUKUOKA

For the past couple of months, I have been in a whirlwind of changes; from my engagement, my first trip to Japan, my marriage and now moving in to live with my husband. Such a long exciting process that I think everyone would agree. Not too long ago, I was in my home country (Philippines) celebrating my last Christmas with my […]
