Posted in Travel by avisoo on March 25, 2010

Singapore is still a wonderful place to food and shop. It’s green, clean, safe and street food won’t make u sick. I would share with you 5 things to watch out for in Singapore..

5. Cheap wine from 7-eleven to get drunk? Don’t ever think

Drinking a bad wine in a heat is not a good idea, can make real time hangover.

4. Wearing uncomfortable shoes

Having 10kg over your regular weight and walking half the Orchard Road in the middle of the day. Running shoes is better.

3.  Wear an Ed Hardy shirt?

Get ur real tattoo

2. SMOKE in air conditioned places

Yea, don’t ever do that. If you want to smoke, be sure you step outside a building. Stop smoking? That’s the best thing to do

1. Make conversation with any taxi driver

Each driver come with 10 minutes philosophy on his life. It’s your choice.

What’s In My Backpack?

Posted in Travel by avisoo on March 17, 2010

I must admit, I love traveling, and it is not likely to ease up this year. I am usually doing three until seven night stays, with lot of stuff  in just a standard sized backpack (an-old deuter 42l). I like this bag because it has a raincover, hidden pocket and an Alpine Distress Signal Instructions inside the bag (it can teach how to give signals to aircraft if you get lost at Isla Sorna).

Why backpack and not something on wheels? like stewardess excellent travel bag which has “rollerblade wheels” on it for free rolling, that my shoulders would thank me for it. Sure they are a bit heavier but you carry less.
