Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan all require individual tourist visas for us Filipinos, but with exemption rules and easing of requirements, a trip to these East Asian countries is now possible with just one visa. So instead of the usual Southeast Asian hop, there’s now a new oriental backpacking trail that Filipinos can easily do and explore. Read more…

Thanks to Asalha Bucha, a Theravada holiday in Thailand that commemorates Buddha’s first sermon, we were able to spend a long weekend in Phuket, a popular island in the southern region of Thailand. Acknowledging a need for a true vacation after stressful days in the city, we skipped the tourist haunts and the parties. We thus opted to spent three days entirely in our classy hideaway, and honestly, we were perfectly happy (and relaxed). Read more…

I was reading through my emails this morning when I saw a bulletin about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie being sighted near One Fullerton by the Marina Bay waterfront in Singapore. Without scanning through the article attached, I opened up the photo, and upon closer inspection did I see that they weren’t really the recently-married Brangelina.

But the wax figures amazingly looked like the A-list couple down to the littlest details—from Angelina’s alluring pouty lips to Brad’s sharp jaw. Madame Tussauds Singapore, an attraction opening in October, flew them along with other celebrities from a studio in London.

The wax museum is rolling out the red carpet for the likes of Johnny Depp, David Beckham, and Lady Gaga, as well as distinguished figures and celebrities from Singapore, Asia, and the world. The figures will be showcased in themed sections, such as World Leaders, History, Film, Sport, Music, TV, and the special A-List Party.

Madame Tussauds Singapore will be housed under a 2260 square meter building that it will share with Images of Singapore LIVE, a classic attraction in Sentosa currently being updated. The two will be linked by a boat ride called The Spirit of Singapore.

Madame Tussauds Singapore at Sentosa Island will open its doors daily starting October 25, 2014 from 10:00AM to 9:00PM. Visit www.madametussauds.com/Singapore and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for updates.

Imagine this: the weekend’s here, and it’s as inviting and perfect as weekends can become. The skies are clear save for a few wispy clouds. The weather’s just right: the sun’s warmth feels like a soft embrace on your body, while the cool breeze passing through feels like a soothing balm on your skin. The crash of waves you hear from a distance echoes inside your head and calms you. Except for this, all is still and quiet. You are at peace. Read more…

Airfare promotions usually spark outrage because of the added fees tacked on what is advertised. Sure, these seat sales may seem like a marketing ploy, but recent developments in air passenger rights have made them more transparent. With the disclosure airlines now provide, the next good move is to understand what these fees are about. Read more…
