“When life gives you twists and turns, chique yourself up in ITALY!- Barbara Cornelli. ” Where do broken hearts go? but hey! I’m not broken-hearted. In fact, I’m already engaged. I love him to bits! Anyway, moving on to the first part of my #italyventure. It was my first travel to Europe and I can say it was one of the best places I’ve been too. It happened last January 16, 2016 when I explored Italy for the first time. I know this is such a late blog post but hey! I’m trying to catch up with you guys. I wasn’t certain if I will be granted visa that time but luckily I have a very good friend of mine who is willing to sponsor my accommodation to lived in their apartment in Italy. She was my nursing classmate back then in college. We were in the same group and quiet share good times together. They migrated in Milan, Italy after she passed the local board exam. However, I don’t think the invitation was the only reason I was granted visa. I have been to different places in Asia and adding to that I’m an Overseas Filipino Worker. Applying for schengen visa is easy. You only have to keep this two things in mind. You should travel first in other countries and have enough funds to support your travel expenses. I will post a separate blog entry about how to apply for schengen visa.
Yes! Finally after one year, it’s time to visit my hometown Philippines again. I’m quite busy nowadays packing up my things, jotting down my to-do-list so for me not to forget anything. I’m quite OC when it comes to packing and making it sure that I bring all my stuffs and as in “double check talaga”. I have memory impairment haha what I mean is I’m “ulyanin” so because I know that I’m like that, I try to compensate. Alright, so because I’m going to stay in the Philippines for 45 days, I have to bring pasalubong for my family and friends. The first week of March, I sent 2 boxes of cargo in the Philippines where all pasalubongs are there except for the chocolates which I will bring with me. Now I’m printing my OEC online which is needed for Balik manggagawa in the Philippines. Without this, you can’t go back to your work.
For all the OFW’s you can print your OEC through online by visiting BMONLINE either you acquire a new OEC or you will be exempted. For all the new registrant, you can sign up at the website and just print a copy of your OEC whether you are in your home or at the office.
Back again, my luggage were all prepared since Saudi airline is allowing us to bring 23×23 kilos plus 10kg hand carry. What a deal right?. You can also have the same amount of kilos for the following airlines: Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific and Cathay Pacific and just to make it sure always ask your nearest ticketing agent. I always recommend that you choose an airline that can accommodate 2 heavy luggage since I know you want to bring pasalubong for your family.
I can’t wait and few more days to go it’s time to fly
This is so frustrating and disappointing on my part. I felt stupid by always trying to promise to myself that I’m going to be an active blogger again.How many times did I say that to myself? Oh well, enough is enough. Today I renewed my domain for another year. I received a message before hand alarming me that my domain is about to expired. I tried to disregard the message and said to myself “No I’m not going to renew this blog ever again” but after I received the message today that my website is closed. I felt guilty. I don’t know but this blog is so precious to me. Not because this is my first blog and you know that I was a blogger more than a decade now. But this blog is the new beginning of my everything. This blog reminds me to start again from scratch and lift myself after all the downfall in my life. That is so dramatic of me but that is fact. I tried to rebuild a new me by creating a blog with full of life. My real interest and my passion.
I love travelling, cooking, shopping and eating. Those are my guilty pleasures. I don’t care if you will judge for being me. I want to live my life and I’m living my dream. Everyone is capable of doing whatever they want and I’m doing what I want. So this blog is so precious that if I’m going to let it go… it’s like I have to start all over again.
I do hope that once in a while I will be able to update this blog in no time and to catch up with you guys! Let me know what is going on with you? I’m quite excited to hear from you. I will try to share with you more of my travels and if you don’t hear from me please follow me on twitter or instagram.
I love skyscraper. I know some people are afraid of heights. But Marina Bay Sands is really a wonderful architectural designs that leaves me breathless just by looking at it. I still remember the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is the tallest tower in the world as of the moment. However Marina Bay Sands has it’s own unique style too. It is currently holding the most expensive Casino Resort in the world. Adding to that this skyscraper has 2,561-room hotel, a 120,000-square-metre convention-exhibition centre, 800,000 sq ft The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, two large theatres, seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, a skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines, SkyPark with a capacity of 3,900 people and a 150 m (490 ft) infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world’s largest public cantilevered platform. Sources of course is wikipedia *wink*.
Sentosa trip is not ever yet. Waterfront is the last station in Sentosa. I already mention to you before on how to take monotrail to the 3 stations in Sentosa. If you want to chill out on a man made beach with the beer and wine on your hand. Then Waterfront is the station for you. I remember the first time I saw man made beach in Jumeirah Beach in Dubai. It was really nice experience that I would also love to blog in the future. I started to appreciate the hoomans brain for this wonderful creation, however I hope there is no fish was harmed during the process. If anyone here knows how’s the man made beach was created, you can share it down here the comment section.
Back to waterfront, Me and donna didn’t went for swimming since we don’t have swimsuits on us and also we don’t want to be burned in the sun. That was a lame reason haha. We just went and explore the places and admire the scenery. The beach is not so pupulated by hoomans so you can really enjoy, relaxing while reading your favorite books.
