MAKI-CHIKA SA TRIP NI ARCI MUNOZ
HOW does one make travelling more memorable? One, you could take lots of pictures, or you could feast on local fares, or you could fall in love with a native.
Or, if you're like Arci Munoz, you could roam the streets wearing the country's national costume. Like what she did in Japan where she was spotted in full geisha regalia.
Narito ang chika ni Arci sa kanyang latest travel plans.
Plano mo bang magbiyahe
End of March, I’ll go to Paris but that’s going to be for work. We have a couple of free days so I’m going to be with Piolo [Pascual]. He wants to go to Amsterdam so I’m just tagging along with him. And then after that, I’m going straight to Japan. That’s a personal trip. I’m really completing all the Disneylands so this November I’m going to Shanghai. And then the Bahamas in December for my best friend’s wedding.
Sa lahat Disneyland, ano ang iyong pinakapaborito?
California and Japan because they’re bigger. I saw the one in Paris [and] it’s almost like the one in Hong Kong. So it’s just small. And there’s only one Disney Sea in the world so I really enjoyed that. I was able to get on all the rides.
Ano ang pinakahindi mo makalilimutang karanasan sa iyong bakasyon sa New York noong isang taon?
Seeing a lot of Broadway shows. [My favorite one] was Phantom of the Opera, of course. I’ve seen it so many times before but every time I watch it, I cry. It’s different because that’s the first time my boyfriend has seen it. He was asking me so many questions but I just told him to watch it. It [was] also fun that I was able to share that side of me.
Ano ang pakiramdam na magdamit bilang isang geisha sa Tokyo?
That [was] my dream. My favorite country is Japan. And I remember when I was younger I said, “If I go to Japan, I might not leave,” because I’m a fan of anime. So when I was there, it was on my list of things to do. There were people who wanted to take pictures with me because they thought I was Japanese. It was a dream come true for me. I even wanted to bring home a kimono but it’s so expensive.
Ano ang pinakamagandang kuha mo sa Paris?
(The] Eiffel Tower. I wasn’t really able to go around. We spent two days in Disneyland and Disney Adventure. But when I go back, I’ll have a tour guide, Papa P.
Ano ang pinakapaborito mong lokal na destinasyon?
El Nido. I like going to the beach.
Sino ang pinakapaborito mong travel buddy?
My friends and my sister. They’re all equipped. They know where to go and they do their research. I just follow them. If they’re not there, I’ll die.
