A memorable stay in Dusit Thani Manila, Philippines

Sawadika! A lady greeted myself and my travel buddy, Kania Kismadi, when we reached the 17th floor, which is the top floor of the Dusit Manila. The 17th floor is reserved for the Club Lounge that is just recently opened, and no wonder that it becomes the biggest Club Lounge in Manila as it is occupied 900sqm or the entire floor! We had a great chance to experience staying in Club Executive Suite in Dusit Manila for two nights. As the...

Fort to lake Maninjau in a day … (part 1)

The second day of my trip to Bukittinggi in April 2012 started with looking for a ride for that day haha! Luckily we got one fast! It’s Andy’s neighbor who has a spare car to be rented. It’s already 10AM so we just walked there and left! We started by going to the place that is still in the city. It’s Taman Bundo Kanduang. Perhaps you will confuse where is that, but if I said Fort de Kock, probably you all know...
