It’s odd the way things happen.  I’m scheduled to meet someone today to buy some NBA cards (a vice of mine) in Gateway mall, and I figured I might as well ride the LRT2 all the way to Recto for a little adventure.  As is my habit, I did a Google search on recto sightseeing so I might have a guide about some cool spots to check out, and I found superpasyal, a travel blog that puts all other local blogs (including wanderous) to shame.

There isn’t much info on the blog about the author, and the most I could glean is that his/her name’s Dylan, and he used to write food reviews for a defunct magazine.  And frankly, it shows.  The quality of writing is some of the best I’ve seen in any local publication for a long time, and surpasses even the puff pieces on the Philippine STAR and similar broadsheets.  It’s insightful and quirky yet professional in the way that it brings you a side of Manila that you only get to read about in travel guides.

If you’re a fan of travel, Manila, or just plain good writing, do yourself a favor and hop on over to superpasyal.  I guarantee you won’t regret it.
