Kwentong Kaladkarin #11: Summer Sojourn in Singapura – The Video Teasers

The detailed posts are coming up but for now, enjoy these video clips I was able to take during our 3-day stay in the Lion City. :)

Larry shelled out SG$5 for some Turkish ice cream at Clarke Quay and got some sweetness, surprise and pain. Haha! :D

A clip of the 'Songs of the Sea' show in Sentosa Island, when Princess Ami finally awakens after hearing Li's song. Too bad my memory card was full, I was not able to record the full 20-minute show of amazing laser lights and water and songs. :)

Kwentong Kaladkarin #10: Blue Roses and Bubblegum Saved My Sanity in Mt. Balagbag

Da Where: Mt. Balagbag, Sitio Balagbag, Norzagaray, Bulacan
Da When: March 14, 2011
Da Who: Jamboree Mountaineers (Team C’s Sir Bidz, Repa, Lia, Hazel, Johann and Kriezl) plus the Team A folks who did the overnight climb
Da Trivia: Little did I know, this was Budz’ marriage proposal climb!
Da Words for the Day: “Ang cake!!!!!” :D

Nothing between me and the big, blue sky. :) @ Mt. Balagbag's summit

My mind was already set in not having any climbs scheduled for the months of March and April. That’s because I just enrolled in a continuing education course in College of St. Benilde which will require me to come in for classes for six Saturdays, hitting all the climb schedules usually slated on weekends.

So I surprised myself when I decided to join a dayhike with the Jamboree Mountaineers scheduled for Sunday, 14-March. Repa, together with her friend, Lia, also expressed interest in joining me. Getting home Saturday night after my class, I started packing my stuff with my eyes half-closed from drowsiness. I slept for about 3 hours before being rudely woken up by my cellphone’s alarm. ;P

'Sabel, This Must Be Love!

Yes, I know it is indeed love when it's already hurting my pocket yet I'm still giddy whenever I get to shop for stuff I'd use for hiking/outdoors. Haha!

When (Eco) Friendly Gets Fashionably Fun

One of my fave hangouts inside a mall is usually a bookstore. I could get lost in shelves and shelves of good reads up until closing hours when the salespeople have to finally kick me out.

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled another great find at National Bookstore and no, it's not the latest book in Oprah's Book Club.

There's A New Mermaid On the Block


...or at least a revamped, polished-up version of the fish-tailed woman, that is. On your favorite Starbucks drink cup.

From Green to Brown: A Kaladkarin's Philippine ePassport Processing Experience

Goodbye green passport. Had good times with you. :)

So I went to DFA the other day to have my old green passport renewed, which is not supposed to expire until August but I have a Singapore trip planned by month-end and entry to that city/country has a six-month-passport-validity-upon-arrival rule for tourists.

Ang Pamumundok ay Drawing Lamang

At eto ay magandang nailarawan ni Sir Manix Abrera sa kanyang pagguhit ng komiks.

Rak 'en rol! \m/

Isang karangalan ang makasama ka sa isang akyat. Sana may kasunod pa. :)
