Singapore, my first trip abroad. I love this country and I'll try to come back again soon. Changi airport, one of the most beautiful airports in the world. We rode the train going to our hotel which is in Lavender St.
We spent our Day 2 touring the city, sight-seeing and shopping. Mall hopping from Bugis, Raffles City and Marina Square. Took pictures with the famous Merlion and other building structures.
We dedicated our last day tour in Legoland Malaysia. One and a half hour bus ride from Singapore to Legoland. Amazing mini structures representing different countries made in Lego. There are also extreme rides and souvenir shops.

This device will be my buddy for the next 3 months. The Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) is a workplace health and well-being program aimed at changing the behavior and improving the health of employees around the world. The event promotes 10,000 steps per day.
The event will truly help me to stay fit and healthy that's why I decided to join. Aiming for 10k steps everyday or even exceed it. Of course, to make it more effective, balance diet and exercise also needed.

SAGADA, one of the most memorable places I've been. If you want adventure trip, this place is highly recommended. Popular activities include trekking, exploring both caves and waterfalls, spelunking, bonfires, picnics, rappelling, visiting historical sites, nature hikes, and participating in tribal celebrations. Bomod-ok Falls, Sumaging Cave and Hanging Coffins are some of the famous tourist spots in Sagada.
I'm so proud to say that I survived!!! SAGADA. I realized that I'm not weak because I'm able to finished all the activities within the cave. It's really hard but it's so worth it if you're able to surpass all the challenges.
You must also try the Yoghurt and Lemon Pie. I really love the yoghurt strawberry flavor. The sweet strawberry and sour taste yoghurt blended well.

Today, May 13, 2013 is the Philippine general election. There will be elected Senators, Congressmen, Governors, Vice Governors, Mayors, Vice Mayors, district Councilors and Party list groups.
I woke up early to avoid long lines in voting, but as early as 9:00 AM precincts were already jam packed, which is good to know that so many people were excited to vote and use their rights to choose their leaders. I prepared a list of candidates that I chose before I went to the voting place. My sister and I were having a hard time searching for our precinct number but thanks to some volunteers and watchers who helped us. After one and a half hours, we're done (patience is a virtue, lol). I just hope that right people will be elected as leaders of our nation.
