Rendezvous in Singapore

Here I am in Singapore wearing a coat and knee-high socks, trying desperately to write something while I'm freezing my ass off. I can't figure out how to turn down the air conditioning in my room! By the way, I'm staying at this el-cheapo but fabulous hotel called Hotel Rendezvous located in the Bras Basah area. I booked it through and got a special 3-day rate of only SG$400! Bras Basah ain't the most happening place in this tiny country but everything's just a cab away anyway.

Here are some pics I took during my stay so far:


Group photo with other Filipino plurkers based in Singapore. We ate at Thai Express. Service was shaky but they say they serve the best Pad Thai lor


The famous Merlion. Honestly I don't get it LOL


A night shot of the Singaporean skyline as seen across Thai Express.


The next day, Aileen and I visited the Jurong Bird Park.


A pink flamingo. Is it just me or is it peach?


At the Google HQ. Good thing not a lot of Googlers were around to witness this travesty! hahaha!

Have to meet up with Aileen in 30 minutes. Gotta go! More to come!! Hint: NEW GADGET LAH!

In Da Manila

Aileen and Gail

I'm having a grand time here in Manila. Been to my favorite hangouts - Greenhills, Greenbelt, Bonifacio High Street and Serendra. Met up with Winston, Mica and Jeff at Krispy Kreme during my first night here. Learned a lot of dirt about the blogosphere haha. Two days later, I got a tour of the beautiful city of Marikina. I've been to Marikina many times -- but this time I got to fully appreciate its hidden wonders. Thanks to Kuya Migs and Kuya Jay for the expert tour. To cap the day we headed out to Padis Point in Antipolo. At first I was hesitant to go to Padis Point because of a bad experience I had at Padis Point in Davao. Good thing we pushed through because the view of the city (not sure which city lol) was breathtaking! I'm sorta technically incapacitated at the moment because of my shoddy internet connection. I'll be posting more pics soon. For now you'll have to do with our fanboy/fangirl pics with Bayani Fernando, albeit just a pic of him splattered on a pink van LOL.

Mica and Andrew

More on Marikina in my next post.

I wanna thank my bro Jehz for meeting up with me last night when I was bored. We ate donuts at Krispy Kreme (Boni High Street) then transferred to Friday's. He paid for my salad!! Hehe. Ok, sleepy time.
