Things To Do in Philadelphia: Feel the summer heat at Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest.

July 3, 2015
Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest
Our last stop of our Philadelphia tour was at the Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest. This place holds a special place in my heart as it was our favorite destination when we first visited Philadelphia. It was winter at the time so it was tagged as a Winterfest complete with an ice-skating rink and what looks like a ski cabin. Now that it is summer, they have changed its name to Summerfest and the ice-skating rink morp

Things To Do in Philadelphia: Sensory Overload at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

June 27, 2015
Philadelphia's Magic Gardens
Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is what I would describe as a unique and bohemian find in the midst of a modern city. It is a non-profit organization and gallery space built by a local mosaic artist, Isaiah Zagar. Zagar has devoted himself in beautifying the South Street of Philadelphia with his mosaic murals. He began working on Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens in a vacant lot near his studio in 1994 by e

Philadelphia City Hall
After our tour at the Eastern State Penitentiary, we went to Philadelphia City Hall to go to the Observation Deck which we weren’t able to visit the first time we were in Philly. As luck would have it, we were not able to access it the second time around as well as the tickets were already sold out for the day. The next available ticket was for October. Yaiks! So with a heavy heart, we checked out John F. Ken

After our breakfast at Reading Terminal Market, we immediately proceeded to Eastern State Penitentiary.

Eastern State Penitentiary is considered to be the world’s first true penitentiary. It has set t

Where To Eat in Philadelphia: Reading Terminal Market

June 11, 2015
Reading Terminal Market
Reading Terminal Market is the nation’s oldest operating farmer’s market which was established in the 1800’s. There’s quite a huge section of it which is solely devoted to locally-grown and farm-fresh produce of the Amish community of the Lancaster county which is very famous for the restaurant cooks around the city. I haven’t been to any farmer’s market but my sister who is a ca

Getting sick on a holiday.

June 3, 2015
It started out as a cough and then I had fever, then the fever subsided but cough got worst. And just when I thought I’ve reached the maximum level of worstness of a cough, it even got worst. I was coughing my lungs out for the past 10 days and when I get a break from all of it, I’m afraid to take a breath because it triggers a series of non-stop coughing again. I can’t breathe when I cough and br
