🥇 OUT IN THE BIG BLUE; OPERATION SHARK. by @biggypauls

In better times when we were able to travel, myself @biggypauls, wife "Koz" and friends Ernesto and Vanessa visited a special place. Tubbataha reef is a Unesco world heritage site in the middle of the Zulu sea in the Philippines. Sailing from Puerto Princesa on the island of Palawan we made a over night journey in calm seas, to arrive on site for diving at first light the following morning.

🥈 Dessert Museum: A Quirky Art Exhibition for your Inner Child by @kayceeports2020

What is the Dessert Museum? It's a modern interactive dessert-themed studio located in Manila, Philippines. It's kind of like a museum because there are tour guides that tell a bit of information. But people go there mainly for the art exhibition or photo studio. People go there to take Instagrammable pictures. I'm one of those people 😁

      You are welcome @imtase! It was very interesting! I've only been once to Phuket on New Years, but it was great to see another side of it 🙃

      Thanks :) Phuket is a great place for event as New Years, Carnival, Bike Week and mostly for the Thai New Year (except this year, of course, since it was cancelled due to COVID-19) which is a giant water fight from sunrise until late at night all over the island.

      Thank you @pinmapple again for the recognition! And congratulations to the amazing travel posts from the rest of Top 3 and the honorable mentions. I had a lot of insights looking at your posts. Cheers!

      You are very welcome @kayceeports2020! I've never heard of a dessert museum before! It looks like you had lots of fun there!

      Yeah, I did! I've heard of a chocolate museum where there was a lot of historical background and chocolate tasting. This dessert museum was its own kind.

      Thanks team @pinmapple, i'm so pleased you like my post and to get it featured in the top 3 is really cool.

      You are on fire @biggypauls! Nicely done! It was really cool to discover the reef with you! Thanks for bringing me there for some minutes!

      All good, I spend a lot of time down there and like to share it as I realize not all can experience this.

      Thank you so much for the mention!

      You are very welcome @sgbonus, it was well-deserved 🙂
