Review: Grumpy Joe Baguio

Standard

I first saw Grumpy Joe on Facebook and I told myself that I have to try their food, but they are only located in Baguio which I haven’t been to, ever in my life. So when I got he chance to go to Baguio for a quick trip before 2014 ends, and who knows when will I be back again, so I must try it no matter what. It’s on my list of the food places that I have to try in Baguio.

So after a long day of walking uphill, downhill the city (which is I don’t mind at all since the whether is cold), we’re totally famished, the last real food that we had is breakfast, so we wanted to really eat something good. After walking  around Camp John Hay, we’re supposed to check out 50’s Diner (on my list too) but were 15th on the waiting list and we can’t wait anymore since we are already starving, good thing that Grumpy Joe is just beside 50’s Diner.

By the time we got there, the place is full, there’s no queue but we still need to wait a few minutes before we got seated. IMG_6371

Kuala Lumpur: Batu Caves and The Petronas Tower

Standard

Just like in my previous post Malaysia is our unexpected trip, we got a FREE accommodation in a 5-star hotel so, we grabbed the opportunity to visit this place since we planned to visit KL last year during our trip in Singapore but it did not happen.

So finally we’re here and ready to explore the place and see what Malaysia “truly Asia” has to offer. Low cost carriers like Cebu Pacific and Air Asia arrived in KLIA- LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal). We arrived in Malaysia at midnight and since its a budgeted trip, we just decided to spend the night at the airport. The agony of waiting in the airport with only steel chairs to get some sleep, priceless (hahaha).

After taking some uncomfortable sleep, we headed to KL Sentral to start our day. We took Aeroline bus to KL Sentral at MYR8 (one-way), the ride going to KL Sentral to took us around 45 minutes, next thing we knew is that we are already in KL Sentral. Since we’ll be starting our adventure early and it’s still early for checking-in to the hotel, its a good thing that there are lockers in KL Sentral where can you leave your luggage while you explore Malaysia, the locker that we rented is MYR10, price rent depends on the size of the bag, price ranges from MYR5 to MYR20 (not bad! for a hassle free walking around KL).

We had our breakfast first, before heading to our first stop the Batu Caves. Good thing that the train is not to crowded, but it took us 45 minutes to wait for the train going to Batu Caves.When you arrive the Batu Cave station you will instantly see the human monkey and you arrived your final destination.

The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia. The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan people.
