Sorry for the long disappearance, but I’m back with resolve and a fresh perspective. Follow me at nomadlola.tumblr.com

No planning. No on the road posts. It’s all a flashback from a nomad trying to finally settle down in one place, using memories, weekends, and work holidays to keep the nomad within alive.

Hmmm…

I dislike the feeling of being at home when I’m abroad.

George Bernard Shaw

I like to experience things I don’t get to when I’m at home, especially food! :)

Sometimes I feel robbed whenever I realize that I now rarely see a beautiful sky during sunset.

After eating at a dessert stall, my friend and I walked through Chinatown’s alleys and saw this crab slowly escaping from one of the restaurants. Since Singapore is abundant with street cats, naturally, a curious cat started sneaking up behind the crab and followed it.
I failed to get the shot with the cat totally fixed in on the crab! A group of guys passed by and made the cat act “innocently”. LOL!!! It would have been awesome to see what the crab would do to the cat if got attacked.

  • Ivan: Ano?!?

  • mom (eaves dropping): Saan sa Angono 'yan?
  • me: Sa may Eastridge...ung golf course.
  • mom: Wag kayo pumunta dun! Baka ma-nuno sa punso pa kayo dun!!
  • me: (LOL) Anu ba, Ma! Bato lang un! AT official park un!

Itineraries are really only useful as a guide. It’s too strenuous to stick to it by the dot, imo. It takes the fun out of a trip. But, sometimes it’s good to follow them, particularly the starting time and ETD for public transpos.

This was our itinerary for Mount Pinatubo. Obviously, we did not start out that early. But we still got there within the same ballpark as the ETA. I always keep the itinerary of trips in the same folder as the photos. I don’t know why. It’ll be useful someday, if not for me, at least a friend or a friend of a friend.

ps: That’s a huge tip for the driver if you multiply it by 3! Kaya walang nag tip…haha
