Typhoon Haiyan, is the most powerful typhoon ever to hit land. But did you know a more devastating storm hit Tacloban 101 years ago?

On our 3rd day we went to Ocean Park Hong Kong. David's fever didn't come back anymore and everyone was excited. We arrived in Ocean Park at about 10 in the morning. The park just opened and there wasn't too many people yet.

On our 2nd day, my 8 year old son, David, woke up with a fever. We were scheduled for Hong Kong Disneyland that day. I volunteered to stay behind to look after David but he protested and said he could still go. We gave him paracetamol and went on our way.

We arrived at Hong Kong at about 10:30 in the afternoon. The immigration was a bit strict, they set a minor aside and wouldn't let him through right before us. After my wife passed immigration, she came back for the stroller and the immigration lady got angry and said do not come back here. That's pretty weird, a bit paranoid.

Here is a list of pet shops that I know of in and around Quezon City. If anyone knows anymore petshops in the city, please place it in the comments so I can add it to my list.

The Mind Museum is the newest museum in the Metro. It just opened last March 16 and deals mostly with science. Being the science fanatics/nerds that we are, we immediately planned our visit and booked our tickets at the soonest possible time.

We spent our Lenten Holiday at the Stilts Calatagan Beach Resort. It is a 2 to 3 hour drive from Manila , at the very edge of the Calatagan peninsula.

This is the 17th Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga but this is our first time to see it. We've been planning a couple of years now but never did.

We put to the test three of the most popular local ice cream brands in the Philippines to see which one had the best Cookies and Cream flavored Ice Cream.

It was just a spur of the moment, my wife and I were craving for noodle soup so we head on to Nomama for dinner on my birthday and left our children at home. I know, selfish right?

There has been a surge of boutique hotels recently in Tagaytay, and one of these is Lee Boutique Hotel. This is the first boutique hotel I've stayed in.

We went to the Manila Ocean Park on my birthday, October 25, 2011. The last time we went there was 4 years ago and there have been lots of changes since then. We've been planning this trip for a couple of months now and have been delayed a couple of weeks. The timing was perfect though, it was my son's semestral break and it was my birthday.

Paradizoo is a relatively new attraction in Tagaytay. It is made by the people who gave us Residence Inn. Although, technically, it is already in Mendez, Cavite, it's only a few kilometers (15 mins) away from Taal Vista Lodge, and is very easy to get to.

Another long weekend, so another trip out of town. But since it's an All Soul's Day holiday, we were stuck in the south, within or close to Batangas for a customary visit to the cemetery on Nov. 1.

Sango is one of the newest restaurants in Tomas Morato. The time we ate here, it was still in its soft opening. I didn't know about this place nor heard of it before, we just passed by it and saw the words "Burger Master". Being a burger enthusiast/hunter myself, I couldn't let it pass.

The next day, Sunday, was our last day in Singapore. Our flight was 11 o'clock in the evening, so we still had the whole day to sightsee.

On our third day in Singapore, we went to Marina Bay Sands, which is a newly constructed hotel building and tourist attraction. Marina Bay Sands looks like 3 skyscrapers connected to each other by a deck that looks like a large cruise ship sitting on top. At the top, there is an awesome view of the whole city and, according to them, the longest pool in the world, which is only available for hotel guests.

We left the Philippines, through Philippine Airlines, Thursday, at about 3pm and arrived in Singapore just before 7pm. This is the best airport I've visited so far. Better than Hong Kong's or Chicago's O'hare.

It's suprising the gall of spammers these days. They try to start conversations and give you virus infecting websites. When a friend sent me a YM, I immediately detected it was a spammer. That is what they do now, they hack into people's Yahoo accounts and give their friends spam websites.

Does anyone know why my Black Ghost is behaving like this? It's going around and around on broad daylight. Normally it stays hidden in the plants or under some rock and only comes out when it's dark. But now, it's going around in circles.
