Oasia Hotel Singapore

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.

Energizer Night Run 2013 Manila

Image

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.

Tulipmania @ Gardens by the Bay (Singapore)

Image

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.
