So I just read your blog (I hope that's not creepy) and I am inSANELY jealous of your globetrotting! I'm happy you've experienced the Trans Siberian railroad, it's something I really hope to do in the future.

hahaha I need a break from NYC and while I definitely recommend taking off for a year or two, I'm so happy to be back home :) and the trans-siberian was actually my favorite part of the trip!

I bet you could get a really good fried chicken & waffles at Sylvia's in harlem, but I've never been so I can't personally vouch for it. I hear it is bad-ass soul food though! are you going to be in the hood soon?

I was born on the island of Mindanao, waaaay down there, haha...a place called Davao City. I haven't been back since senior year of high school and still can't speak any tagalog. The best I can do is make a few dishes. But yes, I agree it's an awesome place and when I go back I will use your recommendations for Manila :-)

Hey Cristina, I was accidentally added La Carboneria, but realized afterward that you had already done so...I keep getting error messages when I try to delete it. I already notified the site, so hopefully it will get taken care of...just wanted to let you know in case you noticed and got confused by the repetition!

no worries at all!

I noticed you spent part of your childhood in the philippines - whereabouts? my parents are both from around manila, so I go back every few years to see extended family. but I've recently started seeing some of the other islands, and it's a pretty awesome country!
