It’s less than two months before the opening of LEGOLAND Malaysia, and I’m imagining myself to be there already. Our friends at LEGOLAND Malaysia sent me photos recently, so we could all get a sneak preview and update on how things are going. Read more…

I have always wanted to go to Penang, especially after reading Beyond Toxicity, the blog of Doc Gelo. Only a few days before the trip did I know that we have a free itinerary, thus I instantly contacted Doc Gelo to meet up. He kindly obliged to take us around. Read more…

Taking advantage of impressive connectivity spanning across 20 countries and 80 airports, awesome new carrier AirAsia Philippines launched Southeast Asian fly-thru destinations in addition to the Australia and Japan fly-thru flights they introduced last week.

Aside from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Gold Coast (Brisbane) in Australia; and Osaka-Kansai, in Japan, AirAsia Philippines is now offering fly-thru services to Denpasar (Bali), Jakarta, and Surabaya in Indonesia; Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand; and Singapore.

AirAsia Philippines is launching these new red hot destinations at low all-in fares. Fly-thru fares from Clark are as low as 3149 PHP for Singapore, 3859 PHP for Phuket, 4229 PHP for Bangkok and Surabaya, 4439 PHP for Jakarta, and 4729 PHP for Denpasar (Bali) all-in. Fares can be booked until August 5, 2012 for travel on November 1, 2012 to January 31, 2013.

AirAsia’s fly-thru service allows seamless connections to different destinations in their network. For instance, those availing the fly-thru service from Clark to Jakarta will fly AirAsia Philippines to Kuala Lumpur’s LCCT then connect to Jakarta via Indonesia AirAsia without having to collect bags, clear through immigration, and redo check-in. Boarding passes will already be given in Clark, and baggage will be checked through to the final destination.

Get the lowest fares to Asia, Australia, Japan, and other red hot destinations at AirAsia.com. For the latest promos and updates, join the buzz on Facebook and Twitter.

I have been to Buddha-Bar Manila once for Globe Tattoo's TattAwards Nomination Night. There were so many people and socializing going on that night, so I wasn't able to enjoy the food entirely. Good thing, I was invited again, this time for an intimate dinner. Read more...

We reached Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) late in the evening after our brief trip to Resorts World Genting. I intended to go shopping for sale clothes at some of the KLCC malls, but again, given our unintentional late arrival, the malls were about to close.

But we didn’t mind that the malls were closing. Our foremost intention of going to KLCC was to see the primary icon of booming Kuala Lumpur and the symbol that signifies Malaysia’s position in the global market as a tiger economy—the Petronas Towers. Read more…

We were expecting to spend a lot on our short trip to Resorts World Genting, but our limited time prevented us from getting an unlimited rides pass. It was all good though, as we were able to save a lot of money and still manage to have a great time. Read more…

The second half of the year officially ushers in the rainy days, and the rainy days usually affect travel plans. As travelers, we should be prepared for sudden eventualities, most especially when we’re on the road. One way is to be ready with gear that can endure water, and this is how the items Spyder Philippines sent to me are necessary. Read more…
