Just some special photos taken from my other friends cameras. Enjoy.
Why are run photographers always stationed at the finish line when all runners are already tired and weary, and has no time to smile for the camera? I don’t get it!

We were billeted in Osia Hotel Singapore when I was there last week. It is a new hotel, and it is evident from the towels and bathrobes, and the bed sheets. They are still crisp.
We arrive in Singapore around 2am, so we took a cab from the airport to the hotel. There’s no MRT already by that time. This is how the room looks like.
This is the view from the window.
This is the view from the pool, at the 8th floor.
I am looking forward to this night race because I saw pictures of the same race in other cities, like Davao and Dagupan. And I was telling myself that when will a Manila leg be?
At last, the Energizer Night Run 2013 was held on May 04th, 7.30pm. It only has 2 race categories, 5K and 10K. I joined the 10K.
The run was lovely, and cool, because the headlights are awesome when captured in film. Although I complained about poor race assistance for runners especially the confusing route in 10K, leaving other 10K runners to short-distance their run.
Nonetheless, it was a worthwhile run.
The last time I went to Singapore on December 2011, the Gardens by the Bay is not yet complete. It was still under construction. So when I got the chance to visit the city state again this month, this is the only place I wish to go to. I went to Universal Studios, Sentosa, and other tourist spots in Singapore before.
We were advice by the concierge of our hotel that it is best to go to Gardens by the Bay at night because of the lights, which makes the place colorful. But because of prior commitments, we opt to go there at daytime.
There’s just a lot of plants, and the designs and structure of the buildings are one of its kind. We were lucky because there is a tulips festival inside one of the dome, named Flower Dome. What we witness inside is just pure lovely. Flowers and plants from all over the world.
I will let the pictures speak for itself.
This is how it looks like at night time. Lovely.
There will be two back-to-back runs that I will join at the end of this month. First is the National Geographic Earth Day Run in BGC on April 28, 2013.
I have been running this event for three years now, and I always love how they organize the race. I also love the singlet this year. I am joining half-marathon, 21K.
The other race I am joining is the Energizer Night Run on May 04, 2013. I have been reading about this race done in Davao and Dagupan before, but it is not being held in Manila. Until now.
I also love their singlet, very simple color in black and the required headlamp powered by Energizer to keep every runners guided during their night race. I am sure that this will be so much fun! We will all look like fireflies in the dark. The available race category is only 5K and 10K. I am joining the 10K.
There’s not much good movies in the cinema lately. I would recommend that you watch The Croods if it is still showing.
A fun, fun movie about change and moving forward. As long been suspected, cartoons are really not meant for kids, they are inherent treatise on life, and directly projected to us, adults.
I am supposed to sleep all day today. But it is just too hot to stay in bed. I need some cold soda and a good stick of banana-q!
I googled my name last night and these were the pictures that pop out! I did not know any of these, so I have to check the source. It was the free photo downloads from my Adidas King of the Road 2012 run.
Presenting, myself in all the state of running.
I haven’t been watching GLEE for a long time, but I download their audio songs. Last week, Darren Criss made another fantastic rendition of a Phil Collins original.
He is one of the best singers in Glee, and I must say that his version of the song is one of the most beautiful rendition.
