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.
