X-mas day in Subic

I’m preparing to leave the house now for an overnight stay in Subic.  I don’t know what hotel I will be staying in yet but my first choice was the The Lighthouse Marina Resort but they don’t have a vacant room. Pricy but nice place. 

My second choice is Camayan Beach Resort and according to the receptionist that I talked to a while ago they still have a vacant room and I can’t book it online since I lost my Credit Card few days ago along with my wallet. Darn!  He said, it’s first come first serve basis so got to go now to get a room.

I am not familiar with Subic Bay and never been there either but this is the adventure I am looking for.  To go somewhere and find it!   Wish me luck!

 

10.10.10. in Dubai

Every year I do publish an article about the once a year moment of having the same number of the month, day and the year and this time its 10.10.10 that stands for October 10, 2010.

So, what did I do today?  I replied to some emails about job opportunities here in Dubai, cooked my lunch which was fried fish fillet with sautéed mushroom in Oyster Sauce.  The taste, not bad at all!

Avoid Renting Vehicle from Sixt.com in Barcelona

This blog does not intend to ruin a company’s reputation by publishing their clients complain but if it can help my visitors/readers then so be it.  It is my intention to warn travelers and maybe this will change the company’s services to their clients and probably hire well mannered employees.

Here’s the email of a friend and a frequent traveler to Sixt.com – a car rental company.

Cebu Pacific Flight Attendants dance moves

I saw this in Facebook and I just have to blog about it.  I frequently book Cebu Pacific for my Asia trips and the last one was on the 27th of September 2010 for my Thailand trip but haven’t experienced seeing Flight Attendants dance while doing the safety demonstration. 

I kind of find it interesting and entertaining as well.   Watch the video after the jump.

Dubai – Day 1

I arrived almost midnight last night coming from a short trip in Thailand.  As a foreign national, I am required to have my eye scanned before I proceed to the immigration counter.  To make the boring long story short, I arrived at the hotel where I am billeted and started to prepare to go to sleep from an exhausting trip.  Did I sleep well? Nope.

List of countries that provide visas upon arrival to Filipinos

Urrgh!  It really frustrates me when I can’t even go to a country that I’d like to visit because of the Visa issue.  I planned to go to Santorini, Greece this coming October and I need a Schengen Visa to enter.  Because of my nationality, I have to go back to Philippines to apply for it and it will take at least 10 to 14 days to receive my passport back and to find out if my application was approved or not.  The period of waiting is not a big deal “IF” I have enough time to stay in Philippines or “IF” I am in the Philippines.  What about if I am not?  Currently, I am in a place that I can’t go to an embassy.  I can’t even apply in Dubai; I need to be a resident there.  How difficult can it get right?

Entry to the SEAIR & Microtel Boracay Bloggers’ Tour Contest!

The first time I was in Boracay was three months ago with a friend of mine.  I wanted to impress my friend for taking him to Philippines and the first thing on my mind was Boracay – which is one of the world’s best beach destinations.  It is not just to show the amazing beaches we have in Philippines but to show how beautiful the entire Philippines is, and not just the place but especially the hospitality of the Filipinos.

Thailand: Silq Hotel, Bangkok

April 27, 2010 – A month prior to our arrival in Bangkok, I searched the internet for a reasonable priced hotel to stay over in Bangkok for two nights in the Sukhumvit area and found this new and modern boutique hotel.  I have read positive reviews about Silq Hotel which encouraged me to book immediately; I wasn’t only impressed with the reviews but also with their reasonable room rates.  They also have free Wifi connections; the bed was huge and very comfy.  I suggest you book the Deluxe room, it has the same amenities of the Superior room but more space.  Their staffs are very friendly and easy to talk to.

An Empty Dubai Terminal 1 Airport

 

April 27, 2010 – My friend and I left Al-Manzil Hotel early that day to catch a flight going to Bangkok via Qatar Airways, the lay over was more than an hour in Doha, Qatar.  We were running late and upon arrival at the Terminal 1 airport I’ve noticed that there aren’t a lot of people rushing to their flights, wow that was a first.  Many times I have been flying in and out of Dubai, usually it’s flocked by people.  This time it was very convenient checking in, it was a breeze.  After we checked in, went to the Immigration area and there were no long lines of passengers trying to get out of Dubai.  When it was my time to meet the immigration officer, I asked him why there aren’t a lot of people this time.  He just said “sssh be quiet”.  Hmmm, that was odd for an I.O. to say that.
