Sunday's Best: "Before Ever After"

After hearing that Samantha Sotto is coming to Singapore, I marked my calendar. I was thinking of buying the book weeks ago.

Well, she's here right on the busy F1 weekend.

Her Filipino fans came to meet her and let Sam sign on their books.

So I grabbed a copy of a hardbound book. Yay!
Then, it's my turn. Yeeeesss! Samantha's so nice! "Pinay Pride."

Sam, book signing/little talk, my signed book. ;)

Travel Thursday: Phuket, Thailand

'Amazing Thailand'. True. It always amazes you!

The beaches are sooo beautiful. Koh Phi Phi Lei, Koh Phi Phi Don to name a few.

Crystal clear waters. Aaahh..

Do you know that this is where Leonardo Dicaprio's movie, The Beach, was shot?

Not only that. Phang Nga Bay was also the location for the James Bond movie, Tomorrow Never Dies. But the setting is Hanoi, Vietnam.

To add to that, Panyee Island was one of the locations for another James Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun. And of course, the famous Nail Island or now popularly known as James Bond Island.

I have to boast my hubby's shot of James Bond Island. Nice PP! During our day trip here, it was overcast and it's hard to take good photos.

This is the Monkey Island.

Boo watching the sunrise at Patong Beach.

Thai food is delish! One can't leave Thailand without trying fried chicken in pandan leaves and phad Thai. Test your taste buds with green curry tom yum and their authentic tom yum.

This is me & boo at Khai Island. Photo taken by our friend.

I took this photo at Panyee Island. This is a Malay Village.

Travel Thursday: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Never Miss Saigon. Yes, never miss this city used to be called, Saigon.

As described in Lonely Planet, Ho Chi Minh City is a metropolis on the move – and not just talking about the motorbikes that throng the streets. It is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its limitless energy.

Speaking of motorbikes...

Vietnam is also known for having one of the best coffees, spring rolls and Phở (beef noodle soup).
Of course, trip to Ho Chi Minh includes a little history review at Cu Chi Tunnels and the War Museum.

Any tourist will not miss Saigon's night life.
The Notre Dame Cathedral and the Main Post Office are two of the sights you will not want to miss taking photos of.

And this is my fave shot during the trip. The photos of rubber trees on our way to Cu Chi Tunnel.

Blog Entries With A Theme

My previous blog used to be themeless. ;-) this blog is all about photos.

Last year, I started a 52-week photo blog but stopped halfway. I was unbelievably busy due to wedding preparations. And sometimes, nothing special in a week so there were times I can't think of any good entry even if it's just random.

This may not be every week. My new theme is this:
Mondays: Manic Monday - just about anything. Fave photo taken to keep those Monday blues away.
Thursdays: Travel Thursday - travels teach you so many things. I've learned many things & would like to learn more.
Fridays: Foodie Friday - food, food, food.
