Much love,

D

This is my last post about this trip. Thank you for joining me withh all my katawatawa post and all. Sana naaliw kayo. I will be posting more trips I had before dahil feel ko maging tour guide. I try to make it as entertaining and informational as possible kasi nabobore ako sa kakahanap ng bonggang travel guides. Eh ang mahal naman magcollect ng hardbound guides so I hope I was able to help.

Traveling is something that I really enjoy. I save up for it and pagpapalit ko bumili ng gamit for a good travel plan. Traveling with friends lalo na, because you learn a lot from people, you get to bond and iba talaga yung connection pag nakaalis at matagal kayo nagsama sa ibang lugar.

V and I got closer as friends because we would travel together, I think unang nakasama ko sya was Bora New Year years ago nung ginawa namin sya ni Tim Yap taga hawak ng bag ko while I was partying the night away. Haha! So while super sayaw at chika ako, sya ang may hawak ng floral kong bag. He would also join our out of town trips with barkadas, alam ko sa lapag namin yan pinatulog dati (bullied by the girls) because nagtipid kami sa accommodations. And marami pa, Bangkok, Hong Kong, etc while we were still friends. So nakakaaliw that when we eventually became a couple, travelling paring ang pinagiipunan namin.

Some people like clothes, bags, shoes ..kahit naman ako. But I really put traveling on my priority list. The experience and memories hindi nawawala yun. Although, I feel bad na hindi ko nadocument lahat. I’m getting better though. At least now may blog na and meron din akong notebook all the time.

To all those people who love to travel, I suggest magnotebook kayo. List down emotions, names of places, taxi rates, exchange rates, dishes na natry nyo and everything na important sa inyo. I even go into the details of minutes from the airport and all. If talented kayo sa art department, cut out photos narin, and paste tickets. I think it’s a cute scrapbook. Rajo made me more into it nga when he showed me na parang nakachronicle his whole life! Hindi lang travels, that’s why everytime I ask him for something ready yan with numbers, what dish to order, where to go. Try nyo, bongga sya. Parang expanded album. And it’s a good way to keep the memories dahil ako din may tamang amnesia minsan.

So here we go, Copenhagen full day tour! It was a holiday so the shops were closed.. buti nalang bukas yung tour.

Huli na naman…. may potato chips ako sa kamay. V reserved a bike na. He planned on biking around town after the tour. Wag nyo na akong asahan sa best in sports na ganap.

We took the boat tour! The sun was out so extra bongga!

Cute architecture! I dunno why it reminds me of Amsterdam…

Dong and V

Tessa our SEA PRINCESS!

I don’t know if I heard right but that is the OLDEST STOCK EXCHANGE in the whole universe. Choz! Haha!

Cute, very Panama Canal ang peg!

I like how modern architecture is mixed with their traditional. Forte ko talaga mga floor to ceiling na glass. Deadma na kung makita ang ganap sa loob, ganda talaga tignan.

They have big white sculptures of modern art. Actually I didn’t listen kung para saan sya…. brief nyo naman akitch.

Malu!

Kapal mo Nixy, magsando talaga? Ginawang Bora ang Copenhagen!

At bakit ako magpapatalo sa kanya??? hahhaa! Tawa ng tawa lahat when I ran and copied the pose in the middle of all the crowd.

Kinahiya ko din yung ginawa ko…

I really laugh too much…

Sige na.. aalis na po! haha!

We all know the ARIEL version of Little Mermaid. So I wanted to make sure kung pareho ba so I ran to Tessa to ask her. She gathered everyone around and said

T: Guys, Listen.

All: staring at tessa….

T: Ok, I’ll tell you the story about this statue.

A: Waiting…

T: The little mermaid has……..

A: Waiting…

T: This little lobster friend called SEBASTIAN! Hahhaha!

Shucks, akala namin seryoso!!!

Haha! We all know that version of little mermaid. But since epal ako at nagtanong tanong talaga ako. The writer of Little Mermaid HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSON is from Denmark. By 1909 the founder of CARLSBERG BREWERIES saw a ballet performance of the story, he was so fascinated that he ordered to have the statue built. So since 1913 dyan na sya, medyo nakakangalay na ang ganap nya. haha!

So many times na valdal attack yan, naputulan ng kamay at iba iba pa. Buti nalang they kept the mold so it’s easy for them to reconstruct everytime may nagaganap sa kanya. Buti nalang because ayoko naman abutun ang MANANANGGAL version ng little mermaid noh. haha!

The mermaid was pretty small. Hindi sya Cristo Redempto size in Rio, or Statue of liberty. But bongga parin sya.

Labanan ng SEA PRINCESS!

Color matching!

Tessa and her fur! haha!

Sleepless nights with Angry birds. Ayan , hindi ko napigilan ang sarili ko.

After the boat tour, we went to the Design Museum which focused on recycling, waste art and conservation.

….

I really wish magkaroon tayo ng masmadaling mga museums in Manila.

Cute chair!

Medyo nakakatakot dalhin sa EDSA toh… Prang paa ni Shaider.

They had a whole room about proper waste disposal. This is what they were suggesting.

This can be turned into….

THIS! We should all be more cautious about our waste. Sana we dispose of things more responsibly. Sa balur namin, habit lang yun. We really segregate. Sa una lang naman mahirap but pag nakasanayan na, bongga na sya.

WALLPAPER TRAVEL GUIDES!

When we opened Singapore….

We saw VIKTOR Jeans! Woohooo!

The cafe and museum shop

Ang cute , may cafeteria school feel

Color blocking

Dinner time na ulit. Again, Malu was able to reserve in a good resto. GERANIUM.

Habang may oras…kodakan muna. Then Raj saw me doing my mini-photoshoot, hindi sya nakatiis and fixed my belt. Sayang daw kasi ang bewang if hindi nakaemphasized!

Rajo’s styling! Thank you!

V and his fluffy hair… Mahangin daw sa labas.

The resto

Tessa

V

Dong

They had herbs planted outside!

Cute interiors!

I love open kitchens! Kita mo ang ganap.

D + V

Tessa and Nixy

Dong and Malu

We had the 11 course meal. Yes, matagal sya but it was super good! But since allergic nga kami sa small servings ni V.. inantok ako halfway. I asked for a COKE ZERO… natawa yung waiters… they don’t serve that daw. Ganun pala pag shala noh, bawal soft drinks. So i had coffee in the middle of dinner! haha!

Sabi ko sa inyo maliit eh…

Limited breadsticks

Talagang maliliit kasi 11 courses. Pero naninibago kami.

Chef in action

The resto’s awards! Bongga!

The nice thing about this is they tour you inside the kitchen after. Plus the head chef will take photos pa with u! Naloka ata sila sa dami ng cameras namin lahat! haha!

Malu got an autograph!

V quickly said “LOVE! DON’T TOUCH!” hehehe….

Look at rajo’s face.. natatakot ata sila na masira ko. hahaha!

Before dinner pala, since hindi ako kasama.. The boys went biking!

V

Dong

Raj, Dong and Nixy!

Sayang talaga masyadong short yung stay namin. But I promise to visit the Scandinavian peninsula again. There are so much more to see. And para mavisit ko narin ang Finland and Norway :)

Thanks for reading! I really enjoyed sharing our experiences with you. So back to regular programming na tayo :)

Much love,

D

Our next and final stop is Copenhagen, DENMARK!

Honestly, I’ve been planning to do the Scandinavian route for quite sometime but all the tours na nakikita ko mahalia masyado, so hindi ko maplano ng maigi. Thank God for Malu who got us the best rates.

We stayed in a cute boutique hotel called HOTEL 27. Bongga ng location because it’s near everything, the museums are walking distance, pati the cool cafes and shops. Ang chismis is they have the longest shopping street daw ditich. But sa kagalingan namin, we were there ng Thursday and Friday ng Holy week so walang ganap. Official holiday. So this is a tip, next time you plan your trip make sure to check their official holidays.

Fortunately, bongga talaga si Malu and the museums were open! But that’s all about the next day meaning next post ko yun.

So when we got there, our battle plan was to have a few hours maglibot then dinner. This is the DINNER everyone was looking forward too. Kahit na tipirin na namin yung ibang dinner, MUST NOT miss itich because this is said to be the NUMBER 1 Restaurant in the whole world! NOMA!

Check out our adventures!

Bongga at spacious yung room. Nakakatawa si Tessa because after the luxurious rooms in Russia. Maninbago sa minimal design. Haha!

Very modern, simple and clean. Actually mas taste ni V toh. I’m more into modern but very structural (yes, very macho ang taste ko sa balur).

Here is V.

CLICK ON! To see our dining experience… trust me EXPERIENCE SYA!

They had fun quirky displays in their receiving area.

Tapos bonggang tambayan. The Scandinavian countries are quite known for modern architecture and madami kayong masisight na bits and pieces everywhere. Bongga, even the small strores madami magegetchung na kabowgerang statement pieces.

Actually, aside from Kenneth Cobonpue. Madami ang pinoy na bonggang furnitures too. Lalo na outdoor… so when i saw this parang very similar sa mga kering keri ng Pinoy!

V went out biking while I stayed in the room to get ready. Since 2 hours to dinner, ayoko na mahaggard. SO ayun, magisa sya nagbike.

Then V saw this……..

He got me flowers! Sweet talaga ni V. Kasi the whole trip, I kept saying.

D: Ang bongga talaga ng mga bulaklak pero hindi naman pwede iuwi. Mateteggy lang.(No, hindi ako nagpaparining).

V: Why don’t you buy for the room?

D: Sayang kaya noh! Aalis din tayo kagad. Bibili ko nalang sya dinner.

Sanay na si V sa mga inarte kong ganyan. So dinedeadma nalang nya ako. haha!

He got me flowers! This one hindi ako manghihinayang because mahirap magbike at magbitbit ng bulaklak at the same time. haha! Thanks love!

The nice thing about this hotel is their dining area na overflowing ng fudash. Yes, libre sya during snack time and breakfast. Kasama sa package :)

FOODASHHH!

This is what V saw sa labas ng hotel… hahaha! Ginugutom ko kasi sarili ko in preparation for the resto. It usually takes months to reserve and we got a spot kasi nag Bonggang sulat si Malu.

So here you go… NOMA ADVENTURE!!!

The view outside NOMA was unbelievable! Malapit pa magsunset and alam nyo naman forte ko yan!

Yes, nakalook of the day na naman! hahaha!

Hindi din nagpatalo!

Isa pa toh! haha!

I love how sunsets reflect on water. Nakaka iyak.. choz! haha!

D + V

Malu

Chikahan before heading inside!

Before our meal. Eto kodakan muna. We were assigned in a private area. We ordered the 3 course menu but honestly hindi sya 3. Ang daming sinerve! And wait, experience talaga sya…

D + V

V, Tessa and Dong

Tessa

Sorry ang daming photos, malay ba namin if makakain pa kami ulit here since mahirap nga makakuha reservation and malayo plus a little pricey. So lubusin na! haha!

This is the table decor we saw. Cute noh?

YES! Mali kayo! Hindi sya decor lang for our first plate.. they got the vase and said something like … “FIND YOUR FOOD”. ABA! May gimik!

Sa aliw ko, hindi in sequence yung food ha. But at least you get the idea anong kinain namin. I also left out some para naman exciting pa when you guys decide to go :)

Sinerve din nila kami ng… damo. YES DAMO (gaga, hindi drugs). Nakakaloka! SYempre, pasosyal kami nung una. Yes ng yes when they were explaining. Pero sa likod nila tawa kami ng tawa… eto ba talaga seryoso?? haha! Hindi pa sila tapos….

Petal naman nung natapos ang dahon… May nagtritrip ata samin eh! haha! But I have to say, super sarap lahat. Walang kyeme. And to think hindi ko forte ang gulay.

Inside is.. QUAIL EGG! Kalowka! Madami sa EDSA nagbebenta but may ginawa sila and the flavors were so bongga. Yes, itlog lang pero bongga talaga.

Pteals, damo… ngayon dahon. At tinipid pa nila sa liit. Hahaha!

The next one, dapat magproprotesta na kami ni Nixy. WOW MALI ata etong pinasok namin!

LIVE SHRIMPS! As in the jumping type! Tumalon nga yung kay Raj sa table. they said, “grab quickly and dip then chew”. WOW! FEAR FACTOR! But since uto-uto kami lahat. Game. haha! In fair, masarap sya!

They even served this. BUONG PASO NA! haha! The funny part is you can eat the blb, the soil and the dahon! Nakakaloka na talaga! I love how they made dining interactive and fun while making the food super sarap! No wonder number one sila. Best in pakulo!

Eto yung lokohan namin. Baka next na sasabihin, EAT YOUR PLATE. Haha!

Well, medyo pricey yung course but since once in a life time . Keri narin. Most of us, pinaghandaan naman talaga. Pero eto si Nixy, nagproprotesta! UUWI daw nya mga paso! hahaha!

After dinner we met with Katrina. She lived in Manila for a bit. She’s a hairstylist and bongga nya. SUper love nya ang Manila that she actually has a tattoo of PILIPINA!

And bongga„, marunong sya gumamit ng ….. TAMMMAAAAHHHH!!!

Raj, Katrina and Nixy

Katrina brought her doggie!

Super cute! Nasa loob lang sya ng bag!

Trying on Nixy’s glasses!

Our walk home.

That’s our first half day of COPENHAGEN! Next up, our day tour!

Much love,

D
