Baguio: Oh Mai Khan!

genghis khan vs. oh mai khan

Mongolian barbeque is not something I’d actually crave for, but Oh Mai Khan in Baguio City is an exception to that.

oh mai khan dishes

They have one dish in particular that never fails to blow me away, and that’s “Taste of Asia”! The beef is somewhat crispy on the outside and very tender on the inside. That’s not the most accurate way of explaining it, but you really have to try it!

The down side was their salad… I didn’t really like how it tasted, but their other dishes made up for that nicely! The strawberry sorbet is also very good, but it’s not your typical sorbet, it’s a drink! Think fresh strawberry with ice shake… absolutely heavenly! But if you’re not a fan of sweet stuff like me, better ask the server to separate the syrup.

I tend to do that nowadays when it comes to fresh fruit shakes… I guess I’m losing my sweet tooth?

Overall a good place to go to when you’re in Baguio. Just be sure to ask around for where it is, because the streets can be a little confusing… don’t be shy, the locals are quite friendly~ ♥

Sword Dance and Shadowgraph

I never would have thought doing a kata on stage would look this cool.

Alright, alright, so it’s not than just any simple series of sword slashes, dodges, and tumbles… It has animation to go with it. But however came up with this is pure genius, ok? Ok.

Mario Karting in the Real World

I would totally play this game if it weren’t for the cops. Seriously.

A Christmas Package on a Magical Journey

dai's christmas package

Soubi’s Dai’s package finally arrived the other day… which made me curious because for one thing, it took a lot longer than usual, even for something coming from the USA.

package arrived in pakistan package missent to malaysia

Upon closer inspection, it arrived in Pakistan on Christmas Eve. Normal enough, until I saw the front, which was stamped “missent to Malaysia”.

…my gift got to see Malaysia before I did.

And did I mention the post office asked me to open the package in front of them? They were probably curious to see what I was waiting for since last Christmas. Then again, when I said I was expecting a card and they received a package instead, I guess they were concerned? That or all packages must be inspected by the post office or something.

…needless to say, I squealed like a little girl when I opened the paper wrapped gift inside.

golden butterfly earrings

Golden butterfly earrings that my camera phone refuses to take a clear picture of! ;_; They’re so cute and pretty and-

…now I feel that itch to have my ears pierced again. T_T

dai's christmas card soubi's message through dai

I’m not about to show you what Dai wrote in my card… but I thought I’d share this P.S. because for the love of me, my Soubi fangirlyness is showing. And besides, Dai has cute handwriting~

Now to think about whether or not I should pierce my ears. ;x; I’ve always wanted to, but the pain involved is making me run the opposite direction.

THANK YOU DAI~♥! I love my gift to bits and pieces! ;o;

Surreal Serenity

Because of my current job as a scientist science blogger for WeaselTech, I’ve been researching a lot on Astronomy, Health, and other scientific findings that are worth mentioning.

I’ve come across APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day) and found a beautiful photo that I can’t use for my work… so I thought I might as well blog about it here.

switzerland sunrise with venus and the moon

That is Venus hovering above the moon as seen Sunday morning in snowy eastern Switzerland. You can see the peaks of the Alps just below the rising sun, but the huge mountain on the right is Mittlerspitz. You can also see the light from the village of Trübbach the small town of Balzers, Liechtenstein far below.

And why did I post this photo, you ask?

Because I saw something similar along Marcos Highway during my trip to Baguio two weeks ago. I wasn’t able to get a proper photo of the cloud blanketed valleys, so I might as well settle for this instead.
