hibernation over!

Oopsie! I unintentionally hibernated… again. 😉  I wrote my travel bag post around February 2016 and meant to tweak and post it before the beginning of March but it didn’t happen. Sigh… I know, I’m terrible. -_- So… what kept me busy? Hmmm… Let’s see... Hiking Johnston Canyon Winter hiking + Height phobia = FUN?... Continue Reading →

what happened?

Happy 2016! 🙂   It’s been almost a year and a half since my “hiatus” post. It appears that the hibernation took longer than I had planned. -_- Obviously, thecuriousme.com needs a lot of love and some updating…. 😦 Anyway... here's the synopsis on what happened:   Details on my next posts… Watch out and chillax!...

basketball

Is basketball only for tall people? Think again…. 😉 Filipinos love for basketball can be likened to Canadians innate love for hockey. Every street corner in the Philippines is an impromptu basketball court... and people play the game whether they are wearing flip flops (a.k.a. tsinelas), sneakers, leather shoes, or even barefoot!

I grabbed a chair in order for me to get movin' which also helped me balance and not stumble while skating. The most challenging part for me... Continue Reading →

beach(?)

With the excitement building up at the campsite, the group also can’t wait to head out to the beach to hang out during the day and watch the fireworks at night. At first, I was baffled because I can’t find the usual white sand and big waves that I was accustomed to. I guess, I... Continue Reading →

luau?

Before we went to Palliser Park Marina (the camping site), there’s been a big mystery on what supper will the Executives’ (a.k.a. Execs) prepare on the Saturday night of the company outing. Two execs kept the whole employees guessing... The anticipation heightened when one of them mentioned that it can either be the perfect supper... Continue Reading →
