i heart ny.
i love new york because of the energy this city exudes. when i was a kid, my dad always used to say, "new york is my favorite city because it has so much energy!" and i never really understood what that meant until i stepped foot in the big apple. (bakit nga ba big apple? to this day, i do not know.) whether with family or friends or even alone, you will never run out of things to do in new york. any and every type of personality, any and every thing to do, (parang SM) they have it all!! just walking around, watching people go by, will inspire and energize you like no other city can. :)

i heart sf.
i love san francisco simply because love is in san francisco! around three years ago, my brother and his then-girlfriend-now-wife tracy moved to san francisco. i've only been able to visit twice since then (and yung isa, super bilis na stop over lang), but it sure feels like home to me. i love how the weather is cool and comfortable, i love how everything is so laid back, and i love how there are enough pinoys in the area to not make you feel homesick. to add to that, my bestest friend in the whole world pepel is in san francisco as well (with his long-time partner pat), so that pretty much makes me love this city all the more.

i love hong kong because it is such a quick, fabulous getaway! the flight to hong kong from manila is sometimes even faster than my drive from paranaque to quezon city.
