Thought Dump: Upcoming Travels... Yeeey!

So recently, there was this "No Fuel Surcharge"-mania going on because of the oil prices going down. I managed to check up the prices and got lucky with one way trip from Manila to Kuala Lumpur for only 1299php + 5php service fee when payment is made thru Dragon Pay. I wanted to try travelling alone so I made the booking with "f*ck this shit! I'm going..." in mind. The flight is a year from now so there's more time for me to prepare and book for a trip to go back to MNL... But this time, I'll be exiting thru Singapore so I could try the "some percent off" tax from Changi Airport for the gadgets I will buy from SG. Gotta have plans on what to buy!


Aside from that, I'll have trips within the country with friends:
End of February: Panagbenga Festival @ Baguio
Mid of March: Mt. Pulag
August: Mt. Apo

We might bump at each other if you're also coming at those trips, and if you do, let's have a chit-chat! :) That's all I have in my list for now and I'm sure there's going to be more if my friends ever invite me to go somewhere. Oh, these trips gets me hyped up! Watch out for my blogposts about these trips! :)

Travel: Singapore 2013. Day 3. Part 4. Mustafa + Dinner @ Little India

After our super fun day at Universal Studios, we went to this place which is reaaally near to our hotel called Little India. We wanted to check out the place because our taxi driver told us yesterday that there's this only 24-hour operating Mall here. We got home to drop the stuff we bought from Universal Studios and get a quick rest and then went for a walk down the road.

Travel: Singapore 2013. Day 3. Part 3. Universal Studios



As you might remember, we bought the Universal Studios tickets at Sea Wheel Travel and Tours at big discount and includes discount on meals and souvenirs that you buy inside. Click this link to see where you could buy it: http://followfantasy.blogspot.com/2013/08/singapore-2013-day-1-part-1-arrival.html

Just lemme give you a quick tip here: If you're going on a weekend or you find that the lines are terribly long (like you have to wait an hour before you actually experience the ride), BUY the Universal Express Pass which costs 40SGD. This ticket lets you bypass the extremely long line and make you have the ride as soon as you get there. As in, there's no line if you have this ticket :)

Other than that, there's not really too much to say because we just enjoyed all the rides.. hehe.. So just enjoy the following gallery of photos and you might learn something or expect what is to be expected from the captions :)

Thought Dump: Janelle's Top 5 Travel Destinations -- #MyAirbnbBucketList contest entry




Okay, let me give you a bit of a warning. I.DO.NOT.DRAW. This is my first time to make a post with images I personally created with the use of only the magical, advanced editing tool since 1990's, microsoft plug-in software called Paint. I beg of you... Bear with my creativity and please try to appreciate. Hihi :D I believe that fancy pictures are already too mainstream :3

And as you all may know, I am an adventurous human-being. I've only gone to the nearest places because of cheap airfares. Like any other, I have places in mind that I want to see before I leave this beautiful world. If someone out there who is reading this who is rich and kind enough to cover my travel expenses for these places, I'd love to hear from you, please *insert cute puppy face here*. So here is the list of those places I REEEEEAAALLY want to go to but HAAAAAVEN'T been to and WIIIIIILLL go to visit whatever it takes.

Thought Dump: X-MEN: Days of Future Past

Aren't you excited to see X-Men: Days of Future Past? See this video for a sneak peek:



Cool trailer huh? :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What would I correct from my past to save the future?

Just earlier this day, when I was on my way home, I walked towards the PUV that I'm going to ride. I was the last passenger to fill up the van. There was a man standing next to the van. He looks decent and looks like he just had his day finished from work. He was smoking coolly and hasn't finished his cigarette halfway yet. But then when the PUV barker asked him to alight the van as I am alighting, he grabbed the cigarette off his mouth and tossed it just anywhere on the path way. Well, the garbage is just a few steps away from us. I had a disgusted face on him upon seeing that and silently whispered, "Kung makapagtapon naman, kung saan-saan lang". I believe he heard it and looked at me a little, then looked away.

It was not my first time to see this kind of instance. I've seen this from different people and different garbage. When I come by those times, I wanted to tell them to put their garbage on proper trash bins. No wonder why how hard the street-sweepers try to clean up the streets, Manila is still a dirty place. People like this smoker do not realize the danger of just throwing trash anywhere. He didn't even put out the fire from the cigarette. If before the incident earlier happened, there was a leak from a vehicle and oil comes out right where he threw the cigarette, then that would cause fire, and then trouble of putting out the fire, just because of that cigarette. If storm comes again and that cigarette gets washed to the canal and it clogs the canal with other garbage, then it would cause flooding.

If I could only get back to the instance earlier, I would confront that man and calmly ask him to put his garbage to the trash bin. Not only then but in instance like this in the future, I will do it. Then maybe, just maybe, Manila will be a cleaner place. And if you believe as I do, I hope that you would help me in this act. :)

Date: Green Street, Capitol Hills

If you’re running out of places to go to for a date around the metro, try going to Green Street in Capitol Hills.


I invited my boyfie to chill out and watch “Frozen” there since he hasn’t been there yet. I remembered the first time I got there. I knew the view is fantastic and it still is.


What we did here:

1. Watched a movie @ Jack's Loft over Fishbowl Iced Tea and Blueberry Cheesecake.
2. Walked around the area to appreciate the view. Also took pictures :)
3. Dinner @ Dencios under the stars while seeing the city lights.
