SURPRISE, SURPRISE

Tina and I were astonished this Thursday afternoon upon seeing one of my friends’ posts in my own facebook wall. She shared a video she found uploaded in youtube with our wedding photos (not one, not two but many!) together with some other foreign couples’ pictures over David Pomeranz’s love song! The thing is, we…

IN A KEDAI KOPI

As parents of an almost 7-year-old wonder boy, Tina and I always consider Gabby’s preferences whenever we eat out (read: he’s like our big boss). We frequently ask him of what he likes before deciding where to dine. Are you the same when you go out with your own kids or nephews and nieces? Good…

NANDO’S

How often do you receive judgment before you eat? Do you also feel some people easily label you by what you eat or drink? Neither I can blame them nor give importance to what they think. I know my palate so well that their words do not affect my appetite. But I had my widest…

ABOUT LAST WEEKEND

This was how God greeted us last Saturday noon when we viewed Him from our porch… It was a sunshiny day too perfect to go to the Island.  It was a long weekend, by the way, because last Friday, 16th September, 2011 was Malaysia’s 54th Merdeka or Independence Day! However, Tina and I were actually…

SINGAPORE : MY LAST THOUGHTS ON OUR FIRST VISIT

Is there any other terminal in the globe cleaner than Changi airport? Educate me. Call me shallow and easy to please but Singapore’s Changi Airport is just simply impressive! Notoriously known for being almost sterile and so strict on implementing rules, Singapore’s orderliness works for them and for their tourists too (My wife and I…

SINGAPORE BY THE BAY

Can you guess where I took my shadow? Those are the waves at the foot…..err the tail of the merlion… Merlion has been iconic that a trip to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to its park. I don’t know with Tina and Gabby but I was in awe; it was actually bigger…

WHEN IN SINGAPORE, MUST EAT…

…toasted bread with kaya and butter + 2 half-boiled eggs then washed it down with milo dinosaur and of course, one of my favorites, Hainanese Chicken Rice… They tasted better than they appear in photos. Would you believe that these were our airport meals? ———————————- *Singapore Blog Series continues… Beyond Toxicity’s Singapore Blog series includes:…

TALES FROM A TAXI CAB DRIVER IN SINGAPORE

We met some people in Singapore. We even encountered ourselves. After we took a bus from Bencoolen Street and alighted at One Fullerton, we made a decision in a heart beat that we need to postpone the plan of strolling at Merlion Park, Esplanade and enjoy the view of Marina Bay Sands to a later time because the sun was scorching hot that morning.  We…

DAY 3 IN THE LION CITY…

  It’s our first time to attend a Prayer Rally that drew a huge crowd on our 3rd day in Singapore! *kidding!* Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with going to prayer rallies but we really spent our entire 3rd day in the Lion City at Universal Studios Singapore.  The photo above was taken at one of the featured live attractions we watched — Waterworld.…
