Why I Write

30 or 40 years from now, I’d be nearing 70 years old and maybe too weak to ever grab a pen, too old to see my hand writing or maybe wouldn’t be able to comprehend what I have written.

Yexel Museum (Manila Ocean Park)

I posted a new post for this awesome museum because this for us is the highlight of our time in Manila Ocean Park. Never did we know we’d enjoy it here. (thinking it was only for kids. We almost forgot we are kids at heart) When you get your ticket, this “UP” replica made me giggle already since I had always been a fan of that pixar movie and when…
