The Singaporean Nightlife

The City Lights

Like any other major metropolis in the world, Singapore has a lot to offer even at night time! You might as well check some of these places I have visited in Singapore during night time.

The Singapore Airshow 2014 Experience

Singapore Airshow 2014

As a die-hard fan of the aviation industry, attending a major airshow has been on my bucket list. Just last week, the dream went into reality when I became part of this momentous event. I didn't expect that I'd join this event most especially that I have an unpredictable work schedule. To cut the long story short, I traveled all the way to Singapore with my friends who are also into this obsession passion and had a blast!

The Singapore Diaries: Day Tour

Touring Singapore in one day was truly a bad idea, but I had no choice since I only had a limited time. The only reason why I went to Singapore was the much awaited Singapore Airshow 2014. Visiting some tourist spots of this country was already a big bonus. Thus, I still kept my hopes and energy high throughout the day. On top of that, I haven't had enough sleep prior this trip.

Now, let's start from the very beginning. *cue music*

The Singapore Diaries: First World Impression

Singapore's Chinatown

I have heard so many things about Singapore - the law-abiding citizens, the hefty fines, and its cleanliness. True enough, Singapore has lived with its reputation of being the garden city as the city-state's filled with trees and other flora along the sidewalks, major thoroughfares, and even inside their airport! Although, it was not enough to just listen to my friend's testimonials about the city-state. I have yet to discover and all those things right before my eyes!

I was glad that my trip to Singapore wasn't called off. Aside from the fact that it's my first time to visit this country (well, not anymore!), the Singapore Airshow 2014 was the highlight of this trip, and that made my second out-of-the-country trip memorable.

The Singapore Diaries: Prologue

Like any other travels, going home will always be the hardest part. I still can't get over with my recent trip in Singapore and there's no remedy to it at all! That was exactly how I felt when I came back from my Kota Kinabalu adventure almost two years ago. Anyway, hola! I am finally back. It was a good thing that I came home without paying any hefty fines in Asia's finest city-state, Singapore.

Now, where do I start?

Planespotting in Manila

It's the month of February and that means I am going to celebrate Valentine's with my first love - aviation! Yesterday, after my duty, I went to the PPSG (Philippine Plane Spotter Group) HQ located at Multinational Avenue, Parañaque near the end of NAIA's runway 06 to meet up with my #ProjectSingaporeAirshow2014 friends (gee, what a long sentence). By the way, we're going to Singapore this February 13-16 to attend the Singapore Airshow 2014, plus a little bit of side trips. It's going to be my first time in Singapore and I'm going to make the most out of it! I can no longer contain my excitement!

Now back to the topic. Since last year, I have posted a few entries about my planespotting activities in Davao International Airport (ICAO: RPMD). It sure is an exciting activity most especially if there's a high volume of air traffic. But I admit that it gets boring if (1) there's only one or two arrivals/departures, and; (2) all aircraft are of the same type/model - example, the famous and best-seller Airbus A320-200. It was my first  time to spot in Manila with my DSLR. Without minding the scorching heat of the sun, I went near the perimeter fence and took a lot of photos... as if there's no tomorrow! Heh.
