Hi everyone! This Mindanao blogger is back from a weeklong trip to Singapore and Malaysia. Yes, this is my second time in both countries…having been there last February 2011 with my mom. Needless to say, I have fallen in love with these two Asian countries! This time around, I traveled with my brother, a female friend and two female cousins. Since I was the “returnee” in the group, I was also the self-appointed tour guide.
Our trip went really well (I’ll make kuwento!) except that I had terrible flu the night before our flight. On the day of our departure for the Philippines, I still had fever. I was so scared I couldn’t go through immigration since they might check my body temperature and all. I took some medicines and thankfully, my temperature decreased. I was able to pass through Singapore immigration without any glitches. Yay!
Anyways, since I’m now back and ready to rumble…errr, blog some more…I thought of giveaways contests promos! So now I’m holding a small housewarming online contest This will just be a small blog giveaway for now but believe me when I say that this will just be the start of many raffles and blog contests here on Mindanaoan.com!
