“No One Does Summer Like Your Singapore” – The tagline of the Singapore Tourism Board for their summer and I couldn’t really agree more. Last January, Davao Bloggers together with other media outfits were invited at the Launching event of the Singapore Tourism Board at Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City. When it comes to the subject of traveling I couldn’t really help but feel excited and giddy. And all of that excitement intensified after the talk of Ms. Sherina Chan, the area director for Philippines and Brunei of the Singapore Tourism Board. Singapore immediately made it on my list of the countries that I should visit. It was just so amazing how this 274.1 sq miles of a country were able to maximize their not so abundant resources. I like it that Singapore do its very best to keep, preserve, maintain and improve what resources they have. I just hope we can do that on our own country.
And honestly, I’ve never been out of the country but I am really doing my best to be able to travel abroad this year and to Singapore for that matter. 🙂
