Taiwan Tourist Visa Application for Philippine Passport Holders


Hello! I just got back from Taiwan and while it is still fresh, I'd like to share my Taiwan experience. I'll start this series of posts with the Taiwan tourist visa application for Philippine passport holders.

ROC-Taiwan is the official website of Taipei Economic and Cultural  Office (TECO) in the Philippines. You may visit the site for the latest news and/or changes in their visa processing.

Here are the actual steps I accomplished to get my visa:
1.  Visit the visa application online forms.
If you are using Mozilla Firefox, a security message might pop stating that the site is not trusted. Ignore the message by clicking "I Understand the Risks" choice and include the website in the exceptions.

I'm back to blogging

Hello! It's been months since I actually wrote on this blog. For weeks now, I've been thinking of resurrecting this blog a.k.a religiously updating. Part of me thinks that I should just create a new one, another part wants to continue this one. But I can't just let go of this blog. Ha ha, attachment issue, here we go again! I'm hoping and will try to really do some backlog updating of my adventures for the past two years. My target is to be able to write one post per week.

Be back, next week! :)

General Santos, Philippines 2013









  1. Rainbow outside the plane on our flight to General Santos City. 
  2. Monitor of real-time status. Shows how far you are from General Santos City and in how many minutes you will arrive there. 
  3. GENSAN display in front of East Asia Royale Hotel
  4. Breakfast at the hotel. I really enjoy breakfast buffets!
  5.  Sun covered by clouds. View from the pineapple plantation in Polomolok, South Cotabato.
  6. One of the baby pineapples in the plantation.

Cooking 101

A few weeks ago, I cooked Beef and Mushroom Penne.  I actually intended to make a post on how to cook one, but forgot to take pictures of the ingredients and the steps while cooking. I got carried away with the chopping, the sauteing, and the mixing.  The only picture I have is the final product already. 


The next step I should start learning is how to plate the food I cook so that they'll look appetizing and true to their taste, scrumptious. :-)

Solitude and Loneliness

Is it just me or why does it seem that every time you desperately need someone to talk to, no one seems to be around? Like the universe is in connivance with every single thing so that you would feel very lonely at that moment. Why, universe, why?

I guess I'm just over thinking (Or over analyzing. What I hate about having a background in Systems Engineering, every minute detail is a root cause of a probable catastrophe. What a nerd.) or Paulo Coelho's new book ignited me to over think. Should probably hit the sack now and hope that I won't wake up on the wrong side of the bed again.


Food for thought, read from Manuscript Found in Accra just a few minutes after writing those sentences above:

"Solitude is not the absence of company, but the moment when our soul is free to speak to us and help us decide what to do with our life."

Very timely, indeed!
