One Incredible Journey Around the World

17 Countries. 343 Days. 6237 Photographs. One incredible journey.

Below is a video from a fellow traveler at heart that I’d like to share.

After I quit my job last year, I packed a bag, grabbed my camera and bought a one way ticket to London. 17 countries later, I put together this time lapse video of the many amazing places I came across. – Kien Lam

Singapore Chronicles: Off to Asia’s Favourite Playground – Sentosa Island! (4/4)

The goal for our second day in Singapore was simple: Explore Sentosa Island.

As early as 8am, we were already up and ready for our day of getting lost in the marvellous theme park! I just couldn’t help but feel giddy in excitement as we made our way to Resorts World. Continue reading

Singapore Chronicles

After taking a nap, and with a camera on one hand and the itinerary on the other, we headed out to get to know Singapore more.  Getting around Singapore is not difficult. It’s just a small place that you could actually visit almost all the places aboard their MRT.

We ‘topped up’ (that’s how they call loading their cards here) our MRT cards and headed to our first stop this afternoon – Raffles Place. Continue reading

Singapore Chronicles: Pre Departure Preparation (1/4)

Last November 4-8, 2011 had been one of the most memorable days in my travel calendar. With the help of Cebu Pacific’s promo fares, I was able to book a roundtrip ticket to Singapore for less than Php3,000. Imagine that!

And since a friend of mine is going there as well to visit his brother who’s working there, I decided to join her in her adventure – and so my Singapore experience began. Continue reading

Cebu Pacific Complaint: Fixed

Last Jan. 1, 2012 I was able to avail of Cebu Pacific’s Piso fare. How glad I am to be able to pay it on time via bancnetonline.com.

It has already been my nth time to CebPac so I didn’t worry much. I’m expecting for the confirmed itinerary to arrive thru my email the next day, as the case of my previous bookings. Dumadating agad kinabukasan ung receipt after the day that I paid.

But this time was different…

I’ve been waiting for 3 days already and wala pa rin. I’ve been contacting them as well – searched the internet for their email address, emailed them, posted on their FB page, tweeted them, and even called them (and talked with one of their CS who told me to email them again despite of the number of emails that I’ve already sent them).

Add some spice in your life slice by slice!

Of all the good things that had been laid on my table – I consider pizzas as one of the bestest.  And yes, one of my ever favorites!

Who wouldn’t crave for that that slice of melted cheese, with a little salty gooey satisfaction, sprinkled with Italian spices, overloaded with toppings – pepperonies, onions, ham, meats, mushrooms, veggies, add up a sauce – sometimes sweet or tart with a tomatoey taste, layered over a slightly buttery, soft and fluffy crust? YUUMMMMYYY!!!

It’s like having a slice of heaven here on earth, isn’t it?! Extremely addicting.

And so, just like any other addictions – the addict won’t stop until she gets to taste all the drugs there is! Continue reading

The Adventurous Side of AdventuRoj

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson

Yes, traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it. 

Yes it is brutal. But if this will be the case – then let me be a masochist. Continue reading
