Things To Do in Houston, Texas

Wednesday 04 January 2017

How did I end up in Houston? My friend Shannon and I spent a good amount of time in Houston because our ship port for our cruise to Belize and Mexico was located here. We did as much as we could do with two full days in Houston. If I ever come back to Texas, I’ll have to visit more cities like Austin, El Paso, Dallas, and San Antonio. However, today’s post is about Houston! So, read on and find out a few key things to check out when you’re there. Continue Reading

Staying at the Manchester Grand Hyatt

Tuesday 21 July 2015

Standing next to skyscrapers still sends shivers down my spine when I really think about how high the buildings are. Speaking of high buildings, my family and I stayed at the Manchester Grand Hyatt for a couple days to celebrate my mother’s birthday. From one city to the next, I enjoyed being able to spend time with my family; especially after being away in New York. #Bulosan2k15 family staycation commence!

Double Date Adventures

Monday 20 July 2015

It is always a good time with mine and Mark’s favorite couple, Christine and Geoffrey. Many known them as #Geoffthaang ♡ This weekend we were able to meet up more than usual. This is rare because we have a lot of distance and time working against us. However, we make it work. Our adventures are random and unplanned and we like to go with the flow. The photos below are of us trying the famous ham and cheese croissants at Seaside Bakery. We stayed up until four in the morning walking on the beach and Newport Beach pier. Then, when we headed home time passed and we watched the sunrise. Next thing we knew, we were walking next to the Santa Ana Riverbed and relay racing in a playground. We parted ways at around 9:00 to 10:00 in the morning. Even though we were exhausted for the rest of the day, I wouldn’t have spent the time with Mark, Geoff, and Christine in any other way.

Walking to the Brooklyn Borough

Friday 10 July 2015

I thought Times Square was crazy busy, but after walking on the Brooklyn Bridge (for the first time) I realized that it is a whole other beast. There are two lanes specifically designated for pedestrians and bicyclists. If a pedestrian walks on the wrong lane, bicyclists will not hesitate to yell at them to GET OFF THE LANE! They also have no shame in running pedestrians over. I am proud to say I survived walking across the bridge without a scratch. After making our way into the heart of Brooklyn, the group and I went to Jane’s Carousel to establish a main meeting point. The students were able to walk around in smaller groups as long as they came back to the meeting point by a certain time. I enjoyed eating lots and lots of food and snacks. I also found this adorable bookstore with used and collectible books. I hope to go back soon. I could spend a whole day in Brooklyn and it still wouldn’t be enough to take it all in.
