Thoughts of My Trip....

Halo All,

After an "abstinence" of 2 weeks from AdultFriendFinder, i'm back.

Had taken a trip to Manila, Philippines. & what i've seen & experienced has opened up my eyes, making me so much more appreciative of "divine intervention" of having been born in Singapore.

One, i guess, will never be appreciative & grateful to where one was born in, what one has been given & bestowed with, til faced with lives & living of those less unfortunate.

I have travelled a little out of Manila too. Went to the provinces. & of cos, to the beaches.

So much thoughts & feelings that it would take forever to put them into words. So i will not even try to make an attempt here...

All in all, it was a trip i would love to make again sometime soon as i can.

Despite the poverty i saw, i have seen one thing in Philippines that i can never find in my other travels...

The happiness of her people despite the hard living of day-to-day, the contention & satisfaction of living another day in the company of family & friends, the simple lives, the love & loyalty they have for & extend to one another, the devotion to their faith & beliefs.

I am sorry but words fail me this time trying to describe the beauty of the Philippines.

The people & her lands, the rich history & the warm hospitality...

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. Travelling does open our eyes especially if we make an attempt to socialize with the locals.

The happiness of her people despite the hard living of day-to-day, the contention & satisfaction of living another day in the company of family & friends, the simple lives, the love & loyalty they have for & extend to one another, the devotion to their faith & beliefs.

Classic example where money doesn't count but love does.

Make it your challenge.... turn me ON!!
