Friday, October 5


We’ve travelled far enough already as Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia and Singapore and experienced 3D2N cruise in a luxurious 5-star Super Star Virgo, but I still keep on reading back my entries about our Baguio, Bohol and Tagaytay travels.  I must admit I still miss the feeling of being totally relaxed and worry-free during these times. I wonder if anybody feels the same thing as mine, but given the chance…I would still prefer discovering Philippines and its living wonders.

At this very moment, I’m actually thinking of Sagada, Pagudpod, Vigan and more of Tagaytay bed and breakfasts that I would want to visit with Gil in the future. I’m imagining waves of beaches of Panglao Island again with its fine-powdery white sands beneath my feet, the excitement for breakfast at Bohol Bee Farm, the experience of being lost again at Camp John Hay in Baguio…

I never been to the whole world yet, in time I hope, but I knew and I’m sure that my heart will always be longing for my home, the Philippines.

Inasmuch as I wanted to update this online journal regularly, I just couldn't find the best word to start, not because I don’t have anything to discuss but because I don’t know where to start since a lot had happened since I’ve been in hiatus for some time now.

Just last Saturday, we moved out of Sembawang and transferred to a more convenient, nearer and cheaper room along Jurong West. It’s located three bus stops away from Boon Lay MRT which is two stations away from Joo Koon where Gil works and three stations away from mine. Luckily, my office arranged taxi service for me every morning, free! The taxi will be waiting for me at the car park, right behind the HDB’s elevator… no rush and definitely no reason to be late anymore. For Gil who previously needs to leave the house at 6:40 in the morning, is just starting the day that same time! Lol

...and yes, we're located at the end most part of Singapore already! :)

Pura Vida Villas: Tagaytay's Perfect home-away-from-home

The first time we went back to Philippines after more than six months in Singapore was a blast! I’ve tried to squeeze-in overnight out-of-town trip for both our families. And where else is the best spot nearest to Manila in terms of climate, foods and views? Definitely Tagaytay!

Gil and I had been to Tagaytay for several weekend escapades during our bf-gf stage. Gil’s family actually has their small ‘bahay-bakasyunan’ in Tagaytay, but we preferred sampling the bed-and-breakfasts around the area. This time, we wanted them to experience the comfort of Tagaytay accommodation and to sample some of the best places and delicacies of Tagaytay.

Singapore for First- Timers

It’s been more than a year already since we first set foot in Singapore, finally after several invitations by Gil’s best friend Dhel. Thanks to Air Philippine’s irresistible P888 promo, we were able to book RT air tickets for two for only P5,434.00. Glad to have booked AirPhil as well because unlike other budget airlines, AirPhil’s terminal (and PAL) is in Changi Terminal 2- the more upscale airport in Sg. Quite a warm welcome for first timers like us! J
