Wonders of the World #2: Angkor Wat

Our Ankor Wat trip was unplanned. We only planned travelling to Ho Chi Minh because we thought our budget won’t be enough. But we were able to find a 3 days-2 nights tour package in Ho Chi Minh for less than Php20,000.00 good for 4 people. It included our hotel accommodation in a 3-star hotel, full board meal, trip to Angkor Wat and a night buffet in a famous Cambodian restaurant.

Regie was the happiest among the 4 of us. After our Great Wall of China trip, he wanted to put in his bucket list all the other wonders of the world. And visiting Ankor Wat was one of them.

We went with a group as it was arranged by our tour agency. We wanted so much to use the tuktuk for our Angkor Wat trip but our agency provided us with an airconditioned bus. This also included an English speaking tour guide.

I had a hard time understanding the way our tour guide spoke but nonetheless, I was able to grasp a brief history of Ankor Wat. As known to many, this is a very famous tourist destination in Cambodia, Siem Reap in particular. In fact, it’s listed as one of the most visited places in the world and is considered as a world heritage site.

What to do when there is an earthquake

With the recent damaging earthquake that happened in Bohol and the 5.7 magnitude earthquake that just happened this morning  here in Davao City, one really has to be prepared in case a similar event occurs in your place. Alot of people panic once they feel the ground tremble and most often times, they get disoriented. I have to admit, I experienced disorientation just this morning.

I grew up in Tabuk, Kalinga, a place in Northern Luzon. The memory of the 1990 earthquake is still fresh to me. We were not directly hit by it but the tremor it brought became a nightmare to most of us.

I was in school when the earthquake struck. I was in 4th grade. I was tasked to sweep outside when I suddenly felt the ground moving. At first, I thought I was just dizzy but when our classroom adviser and my classmates came running to the open space, that was the only time that I realized, there was an earthquake. We were advised to stay at the open field and just wait.
