Iconic Structures

I've just posted pics from our trip to Cambodia here and here.
I still haven't gotten around to posting the Vietnam pics. I actually don't have that many pics from Vietnam, even if we were there for three days and a few hours. For some reason, I didn't want to take out my camera a lot (come to think of it, it was probably because we were usually in Bin Tahn Market and Saigon Square, and those places reminded me of Divisoria, which is a place where you really shouldn't bring any valuables unless you don't mind getting them stolen...) I think I'll post the pics the next time I'm on my laptop working from home (not that that's all I do when I'm working from home...)


Wasn't the Olympics awesome? While we didn't win any medals on the official events (again), I still loved watching the Olympics, and I still definitely appreciate what the Filipino athletes did. (Because the effort for me to drag myself to jog for 30 mins around my village < the years and months of training that they did just to qualify to be an Olympic athlete. I have no grounds to complain.)

The Bird's Nest and the Water Cube are awesome structures too. Great architecture (especially the Water Cube), and definitely iconic. I wish Manila had a great iconic structure too, just as Beijing has their Olympic sites and KL has the Petronas Twin Towers.

Beijing 2008 was great, and I can't wait for London 2012 (although that Olympic logo looks awful, doesn't it?)

Gosh, I really do love your adventures. Every time I visit your site, you're always somewhere around the world, having the time of your life. *green with envy* :P

The best thing about my travels is that it's always low budget. Except for the El Nido trip. That trip wasn't exactly low budget, but it came with a huge discount so I can't complain :D
