The Best TV Series


The only tv series I completed is "Friends", with 10 seasons and 236 episodes. The series started 1994 and ended 2004 but i watched all the episodes in a span of 2 months. The story is about a group living in new york, composed of Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green, Courteney Cox Arquette as Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing, and David Schwimmer as Ross Geller. Six people, six different personalities, on their own, struggling to survive in the real world. You would love Rachel's fashion, laugh at Joey's stupidity, want to have Ross' brains, be amazed by Phoebe's weirdness, want to taste Monica's food and would adore Chandler's devotion to Monica. They make you laugh, make you cry and make you excited for the next episode. It's a series for young adults as the episodes are mostly about friendship, dating, relationships,work, marriage, children, it's about love, it's about life.
I'd say my favorite episode is the one with Bruce Willis and the one when Monica proposed to Chandler. You wouldn't want to miss an episode once you've started it. I just can't get enough of the series and I love watching it over and over. Never a dull moment with them.

Staying at City Backpackers


Staying in a backpackers hostel is an inexpensive idea if you want to stay in Singapore for a couple of days. We've been enjoying our accommodation here, especially that the manager is a friend of my friend. We're at the City Backpackers and the location is convenient for us because it's just few meters away from the MRT, Kallang station and the bus stop.
We're staying in a room for 8 pax, and what's cool is that, we get to have new roommates every two or three days. We had roommates from Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, and Chile. Other facilities would include microwave, washing machine, hot water, dvd, and of course internet.

Sentosa



Yesterday's Sentosa getaway was really fun. We took the cable car in going there and it was really exciting. We were crazy up there. Can't stop screaming for the first few minutes because it felt really weird, it's like you're flying up in the air and scared of falling. We're glad we did not take the glass car or it could have been worse. But the experience was really fun and the view up there is really amazing.
Once we're there, we took a ride in the luge and the skyride. No other words to describe it but FUN. There's also the big Merlion, the cineblast/4D magix, skytower and a lot more to explore. I truly love to go back there.

my First out of the Country


I want to start my new year with a bang, and I guess I did! This is my first time to go out of the country - Im in Singapore. Im here with four of my friends, staying at City Backpackers. It's really an adventure here and I've got to experience cool stuff. Rice is not popular here, so you have to eat noodles a lot. For the first week I have visited the Esplanade, Suntec City, Orchard, fountain of wealth and took a lot of picture of the famous Merlion. If you get home sick, just visit Lucky Plaza and you'll see a lot of Filipinos there, especially during the weekends. There's more to explore here, like Sentosa, then take the cable car. Hopefully we could go there before going back home.
