Jaipur, India | Man Sagar Lake’s 'Floating' Jal Mahal Palace

Sticking my neck out of our tuktuk I can already see the outline of the Jal Mahal Palace as it appear to float calmly over the glass-like waters of Man Sagar Lake. An impressive architectural wonder – seemingly fluctuating or plummeting deep into the stoic blue waters. As I stood out from a distance, I immediately recognize it as a thing of beauty stuck out of place. Nonetheless, I felt it eliciting a probing element calling to answer how it ended up in its current state; abandoned, fascinating yet left to the mercy of the tranquil lake.

Sta Cruz Island, Zamboanga | More than a 'Pretty in Pink' Kind of Beach

The idea of walking over the pretty pink sands of Sta Cruz Island in Zamboanga City not only had me LSS-ing on a classic Psychedelic Furs song and recounting a young Molly Ringwald, it also injected a shot of enthusiasm through my spine. And no thanks to a couple of cancelled Zamboanga trips in the past, I finally found myself blissfully seated on a small boat with my eyes staring ahead to the spread out patched of glistening shoreline enveloped by hues of green flora in the not so far distant. I while away the time listening to the engine revving of the boat, as if it was a soundtrack to the opening of yet another must-watch short travel film.
