A few days in Berlin

The best discovery for me was Mustafa's Kebab. I've heard about how the kebab in Berlin was so good so I told myself that if I ever go to Berlin, I will definitely try a kebab. I was really very doubtful about how one can improve on a kebab. But it was definitely the best kebab I've ever had. We had to fall in line for about 20 mins for it but it was worth it.
The Berliner Dom or the Berlin Cathedral
The Brandenburg Gate was a must see. I have to admit that I thought it would be grander. It's smaller than what I imagined.
This is the view from Puro Skylounge in Berlin. We spent 2 rocking evenings (or mornings) at Puro.  I was disappointed by their (none) choice of drinks but the music was good.

Meteor Garden Nostalgia

Ok, I will admit that when I left the Philippines so many years ago, I was following meteor garden. I missed the last few episodes and I have always been miffed about that. Since I started Pangako sa yo, I began to wonder about Dau Ming Si and Shan Cai. I found the episodes in You Tube! Yey! I can continue living now...

Pangako sayo 2015

I stupidly clicked on the you tube link for this pilot episode and now I am hooked.

 I did not follow the first one so many years ago. This new adaptation is quite good. I really like the cinematography. I also really like that they show a lot of Filipino culture. That's really a nice touch. Good way to educate the masses about the beauty of the Philippines. They can add even more "educational stuff" in my opinion to combat the ignoranization of the Filipino people because of watching too much dumb soap operas. I am hooked and I am doomed because I don't have TFC. Now, I am reduced to scouring the internet for bad quality video feeds. Update: It's possible to subscribe to TFC online for 12 chf per month.
