OPPO F1s: Holiday Getaway

My favorite Holiday getaway destinations would be, actually I have three in mind, Boracay, Baguio and Singapore.

First, Boracay. Simply because it is truly a paradise. Just walking in the super fine sand especially during sunrise or sunset is just awesome. No words can explain. No matter how populated it is nowadays but still, its true beauty which is the sand, the scenic views, the islets are still there. That's the reason why I'm still looking forward of going back there. I've been there only twice, in 2012 and  in 2014 but still, thinking of going back there excites me.

Second, Baguio. Oh come-on, who doesn't want the cold weather of Baguio specially if you're very much exposed to the daily heat in Metro Manila, Baguio is the best getaway all the time. Not just because it is a one bus-ride away, you can simply go there during weekends just to escape the polluted air in Metro Manila. Perfect for cuddle if you have special someone to bring but if there's none, still being there is just perfect already. Oh, I've been to Baguio 4 times already. November 2010, September 2012, January 2013, March 2014 plus some sidetrips from Vigan in February 2011 and from Bataan in March 2011.

Third, Singapore. I know I've been to Singapore only once and this has been my first ever out-of-the-country-trip but there are lot of places there that I haven't explore yet. And besides, I knew some people who's working there. To be outside the country, you only wish to first visit the country which you can explore and of course to meet some friends and a little get together.

Now that OPPO F1s selfie expert is here, you wouldn't worry that you can't capture your best moments. This is the best Holiday Getaway gadget you'll ever acquired because this would be the most used gadget in hand. OPPO F1s best ever feature is the 16MP Front Camera that you could not ask for more. Its uses a front beauty with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture. This allows for more light to enter the camera and enhance its sensitivity so you can take natural-looking selfies even in low-light conditions. Because of these, you better not forget to bring powerbanks with you to support the battery in case of battery empty.

First Reunion with Star Dharma Peeps

November 11, 2016
Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City

Our last bonding together was our Boracay Trip in May 2014. In a very short period of time, these people made me comfortable to be with them. It's just like we've been friends for a long time that's why when someone (either me or them) invited for a reunion, I was so happy simply because I missed them. Bringing back memories and just spending the night with them was just awesome.

We had dinner at Dencio's, even though I don't really like the place because of the very poor service, because it's so hard to call the waiters to serve you, their foods were delicious. Ordered couple of beers then proceed to Starbucks.

My First Ever (hopefully not last) Outside of the Country Trip [Singapore 2016]

September 8-11, 2016

Yes, hopefully this will not be my last outside of the country trip. But of course this would not be possible if I just rely on my pocket. I just like to thank my sponsor whom cannot be named. LOL!

Travelling alone is quite boring. So if you got someone to drag, even just a friend is very much OK, most specially if it is your lover, wow, that would be awesome. Yeah? Unfortunately, this trip was my alone-time trip. So as expected, boring.

I knew few people working in SG but unfortunately, they're too busy to meet me. Good thing, at least the 2 of them agreed to meet me at their working areas. It was very nice to meet them even just in a very few minutes.

Oh, before anything else, as a first timer to go to another country, I asked everyone I knew who went abroad already (if not all, then at least most of them) about what to do, what are the requirements and everything else. Each one of them had different advises that isn't necessary but it's OK to be prepared always. After all, you want is not to be bothered in the airport by the immigration officer.

These are the sample of them which I did but all of them were not asked but the immigration officer:
1. Bank Statement.
2. Billing Statement.
3. Confirmation of Hotel Bookings, but in my case a letter from the person of where I stay with contact number and complete address.

I was told that I was just lucky because I was not asked too many documents simply because I'm a Filipino because of the impression of not going back and find a job there without proper documents. But at least, I did my homework.

Anyways, the only exciting part of being alone in SG was in Universal Studios Singapore (USS) because there were special line for single and can ride faster than those who came in group. That's the only consolation which I enjoyed so much. It was just so unfortunate of me that I was not able to ride the Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN/CYLON because the weather did not cooperate. The rain falls when I started falling in line. Grrrr.. If I got another chance to vist USS, this would be my first ride.

Meeting Tim Pavino in Person for the First Time

February 12, 2016
Music Museum, Greenhills, San Juan City, Metro Manila, PH

To meet in person of the artist you saw in TV is just an awesome feeling. The smile in your face is magical specially if they smile back at ya.

When Ms Girlie invited me to join her and Jay to watch Tim Pavino live in Confessions: A Night of Secrets, Stories and Songs, I immediately said yes, specially because the date of the event is the eve of her birthday.

I saw the posters but unfortunately, I haven't seen them all. I met Tim Pavino, Aicelle Santos and surprisingly met Joaquin Valdez (non-performer), Steven Silva, Tippy Dos Santos, Morissette Amon and Sam Conception (non-performer).

By the way, the tickets Ms Girlie bought was 'Stage Couch'. Literally, we're on the stage sitting at the back of the artists which was a bad view actually because all you can see was the back of the performers. You can't even see their faces while performing. The only advantage was, you can ask them to take pictures with you before and after the show which we did but not that advantage at all because all the people who watched the show can come on stage to have photo op with all the artists after the show. Unfortunately I can't share my pictures with the other artists because of my ugly face who doesn't cooperate most the time. LOL!

To be honest, I got starstruck when I met Joaquin "Wacky" Valdez because I've watched him on Studio 23's Breakfast everyday back then. But because I lost words when he personally entertained us, I forgot to asked a picture with him. My bad.

Other performers that I've never saw on TV are: Keiko, Clara Benin (Sister of Jaco Benin and daughter of Side A's Joey Benin), Izza Rodriguez and Bullet (the clown, I mean 'the funny guy').

Ma'am Etchie's Despedida

February 11, 2016
Binondo, Manila

This is my first official photo-op wearing my uniform and unfortunately, my last with Ma'am Itchie. I understand she don't usually join in a photo-op or even on any events or occasions like Christmas Party and the likes, but this time she has no choice but to join us. Hehehe

Good luck with your new endeavor Ma'am. I'm looking forward to reach my retirement just like you do.

I'm such a torn here. LOL!
