INSTAGRAM AUGUST 2013

The month of August will be an unforgettable journey that marks a higher maturity level & view points in life.

This month was spent well connecting back with people that matters a lot to me. Celebrating birthdays, little success & simply forgetting life's demand over bottle of beers with friends were such memories worth remembering.

I also had a lot of first try this month including some highlight is this photo diary via Instagram: Arab Street, Wine & Cheese celebration, Adventure Cove, Annual Marathon & a whole lot more.

So hope you guys enjoy this photo diary in showcasing how awesome life can be. Remember that your life unfolds in proportion to your COURAGE!

USS Halloween Horror Nights 2013

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore is one of the most anticipated year end event in the island of Singapore. Imagine the whole theme park to be totally transformed into some kind of frightening & nerve wrecking designs & architectural genius all in one purpose- to let you scream and feel the spirit of halloween night. 

I got lucky to be with bunch of outgoing colleagues from Starhub who where all ready to yell out of their lungs & try all the horror booth without hesitation at all. 

Halloween Horror Nights event highlight including their much awaited Haunted Attractions: Adrift,
Songs of Death, House No. 13 Possessions, Attack of Vampires, Convention of Curses & Forbidden Forest.

Ticket prices range from $68 (General Admission) & $60 (Early Bird Rate). 
But if you don't have money issue, then better purchase the VIP express ticket as you will expect long qeue especially to those who don't have talent with patience.  Over-all experience was superb even though the ticket was a little pricey to be honest. But if you're up to the experience and more memories to cherish, this event is definitely a must try.

Also watch out for my video blog entry for this USS Halloween Horror Night 2013 experience.

Bali Tropikal Spa

Any travel escapade wouldn't be complete without having a soothing & refreshing whole body massage unique in a country of your visit. Considering the high cost of typical body massage in Singapore, most of us will go hunting for the best massage place and good enough I found one in Batam, Indonesia.

Tropikal Body Massage is strategically located righy in front of Novotel Batam Hotel. The place is just a walking distance away from the hotel main entrance. We were lucky enough to find this massage haven after having a satisfying Indonesian Lunch in a nearby restaurant. 

We came in and treated first class with staff. Offered with some hot tea, we were given the massage manual to quick view of their service offer. We were stuck on choosing between the Tropical Balinese or Javanese Massage. We ended up trying the Balinese massage for a price of 
RP 268,000 upon recommendation of the receptionist. It is a combination of aromatherapy with the choice of Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Grapefruit or Eucalyptus 100% Essential Oil.

A DAY IN THAILAND

Imagine to be in a place for a day leaving all your worries & just simply enjoy the day of travelling and conquering the busy streets of Bangkok. I was lucky enough to experience this unplanned journey when I visited Cambodia & for some reasons I just decided to be here before heading back to Singapore.

I wasn't able to catch my flight in Phnom Penh International Airport from Siam Reap so my only choice was to travel 6 hours by land to Thailand from Siam Reap via Poipet- Aranya Prathet border crossing. It seemed to be forever travelling not until I reached Thailand where I realised it was indeed worth a travel experience.

Thailand never fails to impress me with what their city can offer to all the tourists. From their genuine smile, luscious Pad Thai, quick street market shopping & simply going around Siam Centre will be one great experience for everyone.

Travel is rebellion in its purest form... We follow our heart. We free ourselves of labels. We lose control willingly. We trade a role for reality. We love the unfamiliar. We trust strangers. We only own what we carry. We search for better questions., not answers. We truly graduate. We, sometimes, never choose to come back.

Rawon Setan Surabaya Restaurant

One of the best restaurant that I tried in Indonesia will be this food haven called Rawon Setan Surabaya Restaurant. Famous for their local delicacies, this restaurant offers authentic Indonesian menu items to complete your Batam experience. Make sure to always try local food whenever you travel to know or simply drop at any popular spots in town & drop by for a meal. Here are some photos of our food experience.

CAMBODIA VS. THAILAND VIDEO BLOG 2013

Travelling in two countries in one itinerary will always be an awesome journey to experience. I went to Cambodia last October and booked my flight a night before my flight. I got a big check off my bucket list when I finally visited the majestic Angkor Wat. After all the great food & temple hopping experience in Cambodia, one unexpected surprise changed my route going to Bangkok, Thailand instead of coming back to Singapore. A long land travel from Cambodian boundary on a flooded highway to reach the Kingdom of Thailand & spent an afternoon loitering around Siam Centre in Bangkok before heading home was one big memorable experience I will cherish forever.

My next travel itinerary will be Hongkong & Macau so watch out for more video blogs soon as I'm planning to document nightlife in Lang Kwai Fong & bungee jump one of a kind experience in Macau Tower.

TOP 10 MUST-KNOW IN CAMBODIA

Explore CAMBODIA with me!
Cambodia known as the Kingdom of Cambodia is popular for the monumental temple of Angkor Wat.
Nestled between rice paddies and stretched along the Siem Reap River, the provincial capital of SIam Reap City serves as the gateway to the millennium-old ruins of the Angkorian-era Khmer Empire.

Designated a World heritage Site by UNESCO, the Angkor Archaeological Park, encompasses dozens of temple ruins including Bayon, Ta Prohm and the legendary Angkor Wat whose artistic and archaeological significance and visual impact put it in a class with the Pyramids, Machu Pichu and the Taj Mahal.

Siem Reap town is where you will probably stay during your visit. The area has been receiving foreign visitors to the temples for more than 120 years. The town is actually a cluster of old villages, which originally developed around individual pagodas, and was later overlain with a French colonial-era centre. Siem Reap offers a wide range of hotels, including several 4 and 5- star hotels, dozens of mid- range places and plenty of budget guesthouses, as well as an amazing variety of restaurants, lots of shopping opportunities and a vibrant nightlife.

Often missed are the many opportunities to experience traditional Cambodia: boat trips on the great Tonle Sap Lake to villages and the bird sanctuary, craft shops and silk farms, road tours through rice-paddy countryside to distant temples and beyond...


ANGKOR WAT

There are dozens of temple ruins in the Siem Reap area, many if the most significant within the Angkor Archaeological Park just north of the city, others further afield. The temples vary in importance, interest
and condition and are spread over a large area, often kilometres  apart. In order to get the most of your temple visit, it is best to prepare at least a preliminary itinerary.

Any itinerary should include the legendary Angkor Wat & Bayon. These two temple ruins offer the most spectacular and unique examples of Angkorian art and as architecture. On the road trip to Bayon, you will also see the South Gate of Angkor Thom and other minor ruins. As it is within walking distance of Bayon, even the briefest visit can usually include central Angkor Thom with its artistically interesting terraces and massive "temple-mountains," Baphuon and Phimeanakas.
