 And we're off to the city of water-vomiting-dragons.

Funny how fast time flies. It feels like it was just yesterday that we read in a newspaper that Cebu Pacific was holding a 50% off discount on international flights for the months of October and November. Like always, we were the last to know and we found out on the last day of the promo. Hence, this weird middle-of-the-month vacation (because all the good dates were already fully booked). Still, I am not complaining. Any chance that I get to travel and go to places I've never been is considered as great news.

However, I have this funny feeling that whenever we try to enjoy ourselves, something bad in return happens. I pray to Obama it's all in my mind, but just two weeks after we went to Hong Kong and Macau last year, the Ondoy fiasco happened, which flooded our house and washed out some of our accounts.

Then, today, our driver decided it was a great night to ram our car into a wooden pedestal while parking, resulting in a massive dent in the passenger side of our 1-year-old vehicle. How unbelievably unfortunate (and infuriating).

Still, nothing can stop me having fun on this vacation. Like all tourists, we plan to visit Universal Studios Singapore and take pictures in Sentosa with that vomiting dragon fountain thing. I am excited, but not jumping-on-couch-like-Tom-Cruise-on-Oprah thrilled. Maybe if it was Universal Studios in Orlando, I'll be having seizures in anticipation because of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

I'll get there soon enough. ;)

So, join me in a silent vigil to keep the bad vibes away. I'll definitely come back with stories, and definitely more pictures you can care to look at.
