Unravel Travel to Kalibo!

Whenever I told my friends that I’ll be flying to Kalibo, these are the two reactions I received from them. One, huh? where is this place? Two, Oh~ so you are going Boracay? To be honest, I’ve no idea where Kalibo is located and when I first got to know that I’ll be travelling to Kalibo, I was alittle worried that there’s nothing much I can do there. Most of us tends to visit places that we are familiar with whenever we want to go for a short holiday but there are also alot of other destinations worth exploring too! Thanks to Unravel Travel and Changi Airport Group, together with the two finalists selected, Jahafar and Jerrold, we went on a 3D2N trip to Kalibo! :D As we check in early for our flight, we visited a few places in the Airport, like the Sunflower and Butterfly Garden before heading to our boarding gate :) Playing games… and not forgetting to check on our flight status :) Boarding time! Off we go~ As it wasn’t …

‘We Love SG” – Chingay Parade 2015

The First Formal Chingay Parade in Singapore started on 4 February 1973 where the PA (People’s Associations) teamed up with the Singapore National Pugilistic Federation for a grand show in the Year of the Ox. This act was mooted by the then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who was also the chairman of the People’s Association, that Chingay, with all its noise and gaiety, would compensate for the ban on firecrackers, a customary New Year practice to drive away evil spirits. It was extremely well received that it became an annual festival and Chingay had its 40th anniversary in 2012. This year, in celebrations of SG50, Chingay will be having the biggest and grandest parade in Chingay history!
