Nido Bay Inn, El Nido, Palawan

Finding an accommodation during trips is like a game for me.  I win if I get the balance of affordability, comfort, clean bathroom, and great customer service.  I’ve had these in my stays in Peredo’s Lodging House in Baguio City, Crystal Beach Resort in San Narciso, Zambales, Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel in San Juan, La Union, and Uma Dewi Guest House in Ubud, Bali.  And, most recently, at Nido Bay Inn in El Nido, Palawan.

Surviving Singapore with Php 5,000 Pocket Money: Walking around Chinatown and Clarke Quay

Being alone and experiencing Singapore winds was a welcome reprieve from the stressful work I’ve chosen to dwell in and made me feel grateful again for the wonderful life that I’m living.

Surviving Singapore with Php 5,000 Pocket Money: Ready, Set, Go!

It is my first visit to Singapore and I must say that I’m loving it! And, uhm, that’s saying something ‘cos I haven’t seen much of it yet. :)

I picked Peach up from Tivoli at around 3:30 AM so we could head together to the airport. We were supposed to meet at 3:00 AM but I have just finished packing my stuff then and Peach was only starting to do hers. Yep, crammers we both are. We were already laughing at our antics as soon as she hopped on the cab. This is gonna be a crazy one!

Sinulog Weekend 2014 with the Buddies: Daghang salamat, Cebu!

I was supposed to follow Sarji and Mccoy at Robinson’s, where Mccoy was spinning again.  Having missed his set in Paintensity, I kind of wanted to watch him do his thing.  But, after experiencing the crazy crowd, the introvert in me backed out. So, I just spent the evening in our hotel room, which I had all to myself for the first time.  Yipee! :)
