Fairmont Makati @ Philippines, Manila

Stayed at Fairmont Makati twice during my business trip. The hotel is well located, walking distance to shopping malls. I was able to do market visit on my own. One of the malls, Greenbelt Park.

The room was comfortable

The first time I stayed, the check-in was in my room. Felt awkward because there was just me with the Fairmont staff. The staff were friendly, made the stay pleasant.

I didn’t get to explore much but I did go for local food after work. I love Filipino food. One of my favorite dish is Sisig (pig’s head and liver) with white rice. I know how it sounds but it is so good…

I do miss traveling for work and overnight setup for product launches.

Anyway, I had my reason. Sacrifices one has to make to have a family…

Till then…

Here comes the beautiful bride. I am always impressed by her. She has the most genuine smile in any situation. Many more blissful years to come.

Everyone released LED lighted balloons at the end of the night. The view was awesome but my camera could not capture it well..

Spent a lovely night at the hut before heading back to Singapore the next day.

I had a night flight so I travelled to Resort World Manila via shuttle bus provided at the airport since I had many hours to kill. Ribbit travels with me most of the time. Traveling alone is fun. Reminds me of my trips to Europe and Taiwan. Going to travel alone to Australia soon.

Resort World Manila was boring for me since I don’t go to the Casino. Walked around for less than an hour and headed back to the airport. Had Wendy’s for lunch! Feels like home when I go for fast food fried chicken with rice.

And I spent the rest of my remaining time studying.

This year has been busy but I fill myself with some trips to keep me energized. There are still many countries I have never been to and crossing some this year and hopefully more to come.

1. March – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
2. May – Sydney, Australia

Hmm… I will need to plan soon and maybe visit some friends in Sydney. The weather should be cooling nice. I don’t need summer since I get it throughout the whole year.

Boracay, Philippines July 2013

First trip to Philippines was awesome. Thanks to our best friend who is our travel captain for this trip. We travel in a group sometimes. This trip had Filipinos, Japanese, Malaysians, French, Korean & Indonesian.

This shot was taken by the ice-cream seller.

It was quite a hassle to travel to Borocay but it was worth it. We had to take this ferry to our destination.

The fine sand and clear waters amazed me.

We also dropped by Manila. Some of us tried the “One Day Old” chicken. I wasn’t brave enough.
