Googling the Earth

Thank you to Rey for tuning me into Google Earth (where have I been?)..... I'm having entirely too much fun, and wasting too much time with it..... I suppose it is because I have not been able to travel at all this year, well not anywhere farther than 100 km from home that is..... Here are some places I'd like to go back to..... can you guess where they are?

One of my favourite cities:Duh, it's labelled

1) Hint: easy one..... somewhere in New York City...... Answer

2)Hint: another easy one..... from my all time favourite city..... Answer

3) Hint: Somewhere in Tokyo.......Answer: 1, 2

4) An obvious one from Tokyo.... Duh?

5)Hint: Ghee this one's for you.... again in Tokyo..... you blogged about this place a while back..... Answer

6) Hint: somewhere in the Philippines...... Answer

7)Hint: Somewhere in Manila..... Answer

8)Hint: Another one in Manila.....Can you tell I miss Manila?.... Answer

This is where I used to live in Manila......
9) And I miss this mall......haven't seen the Mall of Asia yet....

10) A beach in Aruba.... dude, I am totally there.....

Man I need to get out and see more of the world in real life.....

Another ADDENDUM to my previous post regarding those Ominous Signs that popped up in the corn fields..... here is the bird's eye view from Google Earth..... As you can see, my house is on the outskirts of the city of Mississauga.....you can see the green slowly being consumed by urban sprawl..... not complaining too much though, they just built a Real Canadian Superstore nearby (that white rectangle north of my house).... I love that store.... sorry Walmart (the rectangle just west of Superstore)..... and the highways are just 1 min. away..... and that whole area around the highway is being turned into a mega shopping center..... convienience yeah.... concrete booo.... I'm torn..... anyway, label 1 is where that ominous sign sits in the former corn field..... and label 2 is where the ominous sign first popped up, now paved over by a massive business park.....

As long as they don't touch the badlands.....Badlands01i

It took so much of your time,huh? :)

I love all the pics!I felt like I`ve travelled thru this entry of yours.

There`s a cool guy in the first pic taken in the Central Park?uhm,im just guessing.I wanna go to NY city,too and watch The Broadway Shows.

Ive never seen the Imperial Palace,lucky you are!The pics at Intramuros are great too(of course) ;)Ive taken some pics the last time i was there,too.It became a pride of Manila nowadays.

Here`s the amazing one.The Aruba Beach!!What were you doin down under the water?having a cup of coffee?LOL!

Thanx Angelo!I enjoyed viewing them all.

Ohh,before I forgot,I love the pic taken at The Rizal Park.

Ya Ghee, I could play with Google Earth all day, and add so much more to this post, but I had to stop myself.... it reminds me of my obsession with Sim City....

That's my buddy Jerome in the Central Park pic.... he was one of my room mates in the Philippines....

I'm not surprised you haven't seen the Imperial Palace, it's a tourist thing I guess.... usually locals don't go to those things, I'm the same with stuff here in Toronto.... It's nice though, and it's free!

Ya Intramuros is great, I was very happy to see that they were working to restore it....

Word to Aruba! I was actually holding a bottle of wine with my buddy Jose.... kinda cheesy, but I love that pic :)

Well thanks for touring with me Ghee, hopefully next time it'll be for real and not just through Google Earth hehe.....

Angelo de los Angeles said...
