Did you miss me?

I missed you all. I missed writing. I missed blogging and posting on Facebook and Twitter.

When I got to Singapore, my laptop suddenly simply refused to boot up. My Globe roaming on the two mobile phones I brought totally failed.

Fortunately, YMCA Hotel at the end of Orchard Road where I stayed had wi-fi. So at least I could Face-time with an iTouch.

This must be a sign, I thought, to give digital life a rest and simply be a tourist.

This will be a meandering post where I will share what I saw and thought of.

First things first.

A surprise at NAIA airport

Physically, nothing much had changed at NAIA terminal.

Yes, the ladies’ washroom which President Benigno Aquino personally went to has much brighter lighting
