  1. looking forward for more blog about your Japan trip,. grabe, lalo ko tuloy gusto pumunta ng japan!

    another thing! ang gaganda ng mga shots :) galing! kainggit… hehehe sigur0 nakadagdag na rin na you are all photogenic that’s why all the shots were amazing :D

  2. what camera are you using? great pics!

    and that last food picture, grabe lang magpagutom!

    congrats on the engagement! (sorry late)!

  3. Hi saab! your blog entries about Japan are so awesome and helpful indeed! I hope you could share your budget breakdown all in all or per person (more or less) when you visited Japan para may idea lang. hehehe. Thank you! God bless!

    1. For the flight and accommodations of 6 days 5 nights, mga 60k each person! With breakfast na yun everyday. You need to budget pa for your daily meals and train rides. If you’re going to travel a lot, get the day-pass ticket sa train. We never used a cab cos walking is fun in Tokyo! You can contact http://facebook/bookieph and ask them to help you as well :)

  4. The raw fish on rice is called chirashizushi (a variation of sushi), one of my favorite food in Japan. :) And the strange sign on the resto says to Please refrain from hanging your clothes (jacket/coat)on the hook since there’s a chance it would fall. :D So glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation in Japan. Hope you can come back again soon.

  5. Loved reading about your Nippon trip :) Going to Japan is on top of my Bucket list so I really enjoyed reading your posts. Btw, I’m not sure if you’re into Pokemon but I loved the way they put Whiscash on the Earthquake prone chuchu sign. XD

  6. hi sab,
    super ganda ng blog mo..
    i tried using blogger pero d naman ako marunong mag customize
    gusto ko din sana mag blog not for business but to gain friends and share my ideas with others.hope you can help me start or maybe help me create a cute free theme. pls

  7. you guys are so faabb hahaha
    you look so clueless in the photo after “this is it!!” HAHAHAH

    pag family ko ung nagtravel magulo kami kasi puro bata pa mga kapatid ko at ako ang dakilang ate hahaha thank you dito =))

  8. Hi my ever idol Saab! <3
    Can I ask what's the camera you used in your blogpost? Is that your Samsung Note III? And how did you edit your photos? Thank you! :) I am inspired to make my own blog because of you! And I actually plan to get my own S Note III because of you. <3

    1. Hey. Thank you!:) I use my Sony nEX 5N and color grade with adobe Lightroom 5. I’ve let go of my Samsung Note 3 actually because I had a hard time taking photos indoors. It’s only great for outdoor pictures with natural light. Being an online personality (anuraw???) I need a handy phone camera for tweets and IG!

  9. I know this is too late! ^_^Y Btw, I got teary-eyed when Clara hugged you and cried after realizing what’s happening. How sweet <3
