Day two is Universal Studios Mania. I’ve never been to one and I’ve heard amazing stories about it, so I was pretty excited. They had amazing rides and not that kid-friendly so it was really different from Disney or Legoland. I was also looking forward to the whole Egypt look in The Mummy. Egypt is actually on my bucket list, placing third on the list of countries I want to see. I’ve also seen photos of my friends and those were believable enough. Once, I even thought they were able to go to Egypt. This day in USS was so fun I didn’t even feel all that tired. I hope I could see Universal Studios in Japan soon. I heard they got Hogwarts there!
We started rolling at 6AM going to our official hotel accommodation – Fragrance Hotel, Bugis – and left our luggage at their lobby. Their staffs were very friendly and accommodating. It was pretty small, but it was neat and modern. It’s also accessible to anywhere. If we look at Singapore’s map, the hotel was just a walk away from everywhere. I’m also amazed how they know the exact taxi fare whenever we asked them how much it would cost should we take the cab.
The taxi drivers in Singapore were very friendly too. The second cab we rode in from Arab Street to Middle Road gave us tips where to go, what to see and a little history about the buildings. We were very happy that everyone could speak English. My Singapore trip was really different from my Hongkong a year ago.
Our schedule on the first day was to go to Legoland in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Continue reading
Finally, my Singapore travel post. I’ve been dragging this for six months now and I was finally able to get a hold of some nice photos from my cousin’s camera. I was so tired that taking good photos was on the very back of my mind.
I went to Singapore last April and went home the first week of May. That trip was really tiring, very expensive and very bitin. Nevertheless, seeing a glimpse of the first-world country was amazing.
It’s been days since I last had my quiet time and lately I’ve been depressed and was in need of a heavy accountability talk. Somehow, I came upon the life of Joseph in Genesis 39 and read through till the early chapters of Exodus. I think we all know the story but I think I’ve left out some points to ponder on.
Joseph was the youngest son of Jacob and his most favorite. He was a dreamer and can interpret dreams, a talent given by the Lord. Continue reading
A day ago, I heard that someone I know will be sent onshore to the client’s side. I can’t say I’m really happy, but I am 50% happy for that person. The other 50% is resentment and bitterness (not towards the person but to how my career shaped up in that company). I can tell myself I’m far better than that person and yet I am not given the chance to be sent onshore due to the project’s budgets constraints. I can blame the project Continue reading
Until I get a new laptop. Or get my old one fixed.
I started going to my new job just this Monday and I was crying the night I went home.. in the train.. like a drama queen!
I just found out that my shift was changed to night as we needed to do knowledge transition from the US team and we need to catch up on their time. So I cried, because this wasn’t what I asked God – this is exactly what I didn’t want. I had to whine to Him on my quiet Continue reading
Turning 23 is odd. I woke up not feeling anything special, at all. While stepping into the shower that morning of April 8, I realized I won’t be able to sing along and relate to Taylor Swift’s song called 22. Boohoo. Continue reading
Writer and filmmaker Lauris Beinerts beautifully captures what it’s like to be an expert in a technical field during a “big picture” business meeting. This short film is based on the Russian short story, “The Meeting”, by writer Alexei Berezin.
I hope you can relate and enjoy watching. :)
While walking on the way home and occasionally bumping to lovebirds holding hands, hugging and displaying all sorts of affection, I have gotten myself to ask why I was never that kind of girl back when I was dating someone. And sometimes, in one of the many Saturday afternoons of lying in the couch and staring at the ceiling, I contemplate why it never worked out as much as we wanted and tried to, why it never ended the way we would have liked it to, and why I was never the sweet girlfriend he expected me to be. Continue reading
Technically, that is.
The past three days were a whirlwind of mistake after mistake. It was like a series of unfortunate events. We were tired and we were sleepy, but we had to keep our head in the game.
And to be honest, I don’t even know how to describe it all. But somehow, it filled three pages of my journal each day, which summed up to 9 pages by Tuesday evening.
I’m pretty skeptical to things I hear and learn, so I try to ask questions as much as I can and I try to listen to everyone’s answers and questions as well.
One thing I have found interesting to learn lately is the Bible. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not doubting whatsoever, but I like digging in. One question was answered awhile ago, which made me curious even more. Continue reading
May the good Lord bless your souls.
Author: Rainbow Rowell lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband and two sons. She’s also the author of Attachments and Fangirl. I tried to Wiki her, but I couldn’t find anything, so I settled some description from her book. Continue reading
I love rain, except for days when I have activities that need Mr. Sunshine, but for most part, I love rain, always, always. Rain gives me this gloomy mood, not the bad kind of gloomy, but more of a melancholic gloomy mood.
I could have just said melancholy, right? Yes, it makes me dive into memories, scrolling endlessly on my Pictures folder. It makes me think about life, like what do I dream becoming of? It makes me ponder about love and how it went wrong and how will God reveal to me the right one. And most of the times, it makes me take a good long shower, with candles all over the bath room and a soft piano music playing around. It just makes me feel like a woman worthy to be taken serious of.
Read below to see how I spend my rainy nights. Continue reading
When I was in school a few years back, I thought what would make me really happy are the things that I was planning to buy when I get my pay every month. I listed it all down before, beside my 50 things that I should do in life before I die list. But then, as I go through the days as a career lady, I realized, the things that I took for granted when I was in college, are the very things that I treasure now. Continue reading
Sometimes I wonder, what if I wasn’t me?
What if I was this girl you knew so well? Continue reading
Ohhh, for the love of brown! It’s September and I just wanted to post my simple must-haves for this month. These are items that you can find anywhere and buy at low prices. Continue reading
The Pity train has just derailed at the corner of Suck it Up and Move On, and crashed into We All Have Problems, before coming to a stop at Get the Hell Over It.
I honestly didn’t think that I made a mistake or offended them until everyone in the family made a pretty big fuss about it. Continue reading
So I wasn’t happy with the hair cut I got just this evening and I’m so tempted to chop it off or make it a little pleasant-looking. I was told not to get a hair cut and just grow my hair but I pushed through cause I really wanted to shape it up so it would look better when it grows longer. Check out the before and after photo. Continue reading
I never knew finding a new house to rent to and getting someone to share a room with you was this hard! It eats up a lot of time and effort by viewing the units on their given schedules and by find a room mate. And I have barely a month! Continue reading
