New place!!!

First week of december we transferred to our new place in Singapore. It is a 3-room HDB unit as opposed to our first place in SG which is in a condominium( i really miss that place). The unit is decent and clean. The owner seldom stayed so everything in the place is quite new.

Wish came true

Last weekend, we spend the whole day in Sentosa. We tried Sentosa's 4D max, Cineblast,Cable car, Songs of the sea and the Merlion Tower. There are two merlion here in singapore. The original is in Raffles and the bigger merlion is in Sentosa overlooking the whole city of Singapore.

I like Cineblast but the most memorable one is the Merlion Tower. In Merlion's head, i proposed to the one i love and i will love for the rest of my life, Rachel. Im kinda shy when i proposed :) and she was laughing the whole time. I got her golden "Yes, i will marry you!!!"

To my surprise also despite of our tight budget saving for our wedding this coming April. She gave me the one of the things that im craving for. My own Sony PSP!!!! It's her Christmast gift and birthday gift at the same time to me. We scored the PSP in Funzquare. Funzquare can be found in the back of Tangs in Orchard Singapore. There's a lot of  games stores here in Singapore but be warned, most of them are already blacklisted!!! Only 2-3 stores offers good to honest services and Funzquare is one of them. Try to explore Filipino's internet forums before purchasing anything in Singapore.

Bulahaw in The Arena Singapore

After months of waiting, got again the opportunity to grip on my stick and rock my self out loud. Bulahaw played 7 songs in the The Arena Singapore Clark Quay. At first i was so nervous as if it is like the first time to play in the stage, but when the guitar, bass and vocals riffs on, the blood rushes into my brain and played like there was no tomorrow. Rock on!!!!

Banda rito in Singapore

My former classmate/bandmate Paolo called me yesterday and asked me if i want to form a band here in Singapore. At first i'm hesitant to say yes because of my work's abnormal schedule, but then again,the music that still in my blood wants to come out. Let's see if things fall into places.

Batam Indonesia

Last week, we had a team building activity in Batam Indonesia. Batam is a 45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore. Indonesia is much like the Philippines. The atmosphere, the people, the streets, the food, etc. But i still like Philippines beaches and seashores.
