Singapore: What They Don’t Tell You

Singapore: What They Don’t Tell You

by Khirol HazwanMarch 2, 2017

Singapore is well known for its shopping scene, clean streets and unique architecture. Before you go for your own resale HDB, is Singapore what it seems to be or is there something hidden you haven’t found out yet?

The bars, the clubs and the casinos, Singapore has all this to offer you for their nightlife but if you dig a little deeper you will see that there is more than meets the eye. An poorly kept secret around Singapore is that their red light district and activities are as buzzing as much as their long weekend sales. Now if you are looking for this type of experience there are a few places that can cater to your needs.

Orchard Towers

Orchard Towers

Right on orchard road is a building which has garnered the nickname “the four floors of whores.” Orchard Towers is a typical quiet building in the day but once the sun sets the flashing neon light can be seen from the outside. Girls will litter the streets surrounding and “ang mohs” will be right there with them. Cabs lined around the building ready to take them where they need to go as fast as possible. The building has this nickname because inside you will find a wide variety of girlie bars and sex stores.



Geylang is one of those places that perfectly illustrate two sides of a coin, on one side there is the amazing food spots and on the other side it can be considered the center of the red-light district of Singapore. It may not be the cheapest here but you are sure to get the full experience. With what you’re paying the brothels will not only offer you pleasure but safety at the same time. One common practice that all brothels share here is that they have to make sure that their girls make regular visits to the doctor so you’d feel somewhat secure.

Chinese Clinics

TCM or traditional Chinese medicine apparently offer more than herbs and spices. There are a few clinics ins Singapore namely, Chinatown, Tanjong Pagar and Jalan Besar that offer TCM and much much more. These clinics are seen as legitimate clinics with Chinese medicine but once you get in for treatment you are offered a “happy massage. “ These happy massage are apparently an off the menu item and have different fees per clinic.

Escort Agencies

If you find yourself feeling lazy to go to these different areas of Singapore or a bit shy to be seen at these places maybe contacting an escort service is the better option for you. Just look it up on the local phone book or just online, there rates are sure to be costlier than the usual but it is the most discreet approach. If you don’t have the money to spend for this don’t even bother calling because the people on the line aren’t playing around and are straight to business.

Escort Agencies


If a little more fun is what you’re looking for these are just a few places you should call or visit. Just remember to be safe and you should know what you’re getting into. Singapore just got a little hotter for you, didn’t it?

The Basic Things You Need to Survive Being Lost in the Wilderness

The Basic Things You Need to Survive Being Lost in the Wilderness

by Khirol HazwanFebruary 1, 2017

The hustle and bustle of a busy city can really become tiring. This is especially true to people who have always lived in it through most of their lives. It comes as no surprise that these individuals prefer to go on adventures in the wilderness that will allow them to stay as far as possible from the city.

Of course, traversing the wild is no walk in the park. People, who wish to do it, should be able to pick up enough survival tips before they go on one in order to endure a harsher environment. If you are planning a wilderness trip, then you should learn which basic necessities you must have in case you find yourself lost in the wild. Here are some of them:

Water Catchment

In the wild, water sources are not always going to be available to you, which is why it is up to you to provide your very own water catchment and filtration system. There are several ways you can collect water. Various materials can be used in order to do so. Aside from your water bottle, you can also use items such as plastic bags, pieces of bamboo, hallow logs, rags, or pieces of cloth to collect water.


Food is another item you must have with you in order to survive the wilderness. Prepare to pack enough supplies of spirulina, wheatgrass, maca powder, and a sprouting kit. They should be able to sustain you for a long time. However, you can rely on edible plants and flowers, which you can find in your environment once you run out of your food supplies.

Light and Heat Source

Providing yourself with an ample amount of light and heat source in the wild is an important skill to learn. Make it easier for yourself by always bringing some matches with you on your wilderness trips. If they are not an option, then prepare to rub two sticks together in order to produce fire. Remember that fire can be used for many things not just for heat and light. It can also be used for cooking, killing off parasites, or as an emergency signal.

Insulating Clothing Materials

The weather and temperature in the wilderness can be very hard to tell. It is always good to be prepared for harsh and extreme phenomenon by bringing insulating clothing materials with you. They should include under layers and heavy jackets. Extra blankets could also give you extra protection from the cold.

Versatile Knife

Bringing a versatile knife on your wilderness trip can be very helpful. It can be used for several things including cutting plants to get their moisture, preparing food, creating other tools for survival, and cutting vines and branches to build yourself a shelter. Be very picky with the knife you bring with you though; they need to be a versatile one in order to do all these things mentioned above.

These are the basic items you need in order to survive in the wilderness. If you suddenly find yourself lost, try not to panic and recall all the things you learned about surviving. You’ll be fine in the end!

5 Travel Tips For a Safe Road Trip

5 Travel Tips For a Safe Road Trip

by Khirol HazwanJanuary 18, 2017

The year 2017 can symbolize many things for a lot of people. For some, it could be the year they finally decide to put their health and fitness first and foremost. Others would want to set their aspirations to finally take the career path they want to pursue; while the rest just want to have more adventures in the New Year.

None of them are greater than the others because all of them are unique in their own rights. But surely the last group of people, who want to go on more adventures, cannot be faulted. After all, there are so many places you can explore in this world. All these people need to do is to plan, prepare, and be safe on their journey – particularly if they are taking their Toyota Vios in the Philippines for a road trip.

Here are some simple travel tips to follow:

Schedule a Tune-Up

road trip

The first thing you must take care of when planning for a (long) road trip is to schedule a tune-up for your car. Have a qualified mechanic check your vehicle’s air conditioner, fluids, belts, battery, and tires. You do not want to be surprised with a sudden mishap just because you choose not to tune-up your car. Moreover, you might also want to consider checking your motor oil. You want it to have a high viscosity since you are driving in a hot country.

Get Enough Rest

Your car is not the only thing that should be in its best condition on a long journey. You, yourself, must be well rested. After all, you are going to drive for a long time to arrive to your destination. You should sleep plenty of hours the night before your road trip and if possible switch your driving duties with another adult so you don’t get exhausted.

Plan Your Route and Share It

There are many devices you can use to make sure you arrive safely to your destination. GPS is the most commonly used by travellers to map out their route. It is a good idea to do this beforehand so you immediately know where to go. After choosing your route, you may want to share it to the hotel or the people you are going to visit – as well as with another person back home – so they know where you are going and whether you should have arrived at your destination already.

Prepare for a Long Journey

Estimate how much time you are going to spend on your journey. Prepare all the things you think you are going to need along the way, including food, beverages, and an emergency kit. Your emergency kit should contain the following:

  • A first-aid kit (bandages and medicines)
  • A cell phone with full batteries
  • Flares
  • Jump cables
  • Flashlights
  • Warm blankets
  • Water

Check Your Backseat

This is an important thing you need to do before you go on your road trip. You must check your backseat for anything that could be used as a projectile in case you encounter a crash. Remove objects such as toys, hard books, loose change, and knobs that can be removed easily for they can hit you in case of a car crash.

Follow these simple travel tips to assure you are going to have a fun and safe journey!

The Architectural Wonder of Detroit

The Architectural Wonder of Detroit

by Khirol HazwanDecember 1, 2016

Various architectural design services in the Philippines and those found across the world aim to build and create various infrastructural projects that will be recognized by important organizations like UNESCO. A number of them are looking to join the ranks of Detroit City in Michigan, USA.

Back in December 2015, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network has named the city as the City of Design because of the various architectural marvels you can see in it. It has a diverse collection of significant private residences, industrial buildings, and skyscrapers that was built in the 19th and 20th century. However, the most notable structures in the city are following.


  1. Russell Industrial Center (RIC)

The RIC was constructed by Albert Kahm Associates back in the year 1925. This building was originally built to cater to the automotive industry. However, it has been revived to become an arts complex instead. Today, it is home to about 140 arts studios – the largest arts hub in the Midwest. It also contains an exhibition center where blockbuster films like “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” was made.

  1. The Renaissance Center

The Renaissance Center is one of the most iconic skyscrapers you can found in Detroit. John Portman & Associates completed the entire structure in 1981. It reflects the postmodernism movement that was largely present at that time, which is why it was made to look like a daunting insular fortress. It also used to host the highest restaurant you can find in the western hemisphere.

  1. The Guardian Building

The Guardian Building has been named as a National Historic Landmark for being a “Cathedral of Finance.” Its design showcases both Art Deco and Mayan Revival styles. Its exterior features orange brickwork which made use of various materials like terra cotta, limestone, and tile. The colourful Native American-themed mosaic found in its interior is made out of Rookwood and Pewabic tiles. This building was finished in 1929 by Wirt C. Rowland for Smith, Hinchman, and Grylls.

  1. The Masonic Temple

The Masonic Temple is a 14-storey neo-Gothic temple considered to be the largest one of its kind that you can find in the world. It has become home to different events like the yearly Theatre Bizarre and Marche du Nain Rouge. Theatre Bizarre has billed itself as the best Halloween costume party you can find in the USA. Marche du Nain Rouge, on the other hand, is a Detroit parade meant to drive away the evil red goblin from the city during springtime.

  1. The Detroit Institute of Arts

The Detroit Institute of Arts is being considered to be one of the most-frequented museums in the entire globe. It has more than 100 galleries where people can see the artworks produced by Diego Rivera such as the “Man and the Machine” and the “Detroit Industry.”

The museum was built by Paul Philippe Cret and designed it according to the style of Beaux-Arts neoclassical Italian Renaissance. It hosts the largest and most significant art collections in the USA.

Detroit is truly a wonderful place. Experience all of these architectural marvels by visiting the city!

8 Beach Activities for Your Next Outing

by Khirol HazwanOctober 26, 2016

Going out of town is an activity where most families and friends look forward to especially when we recently experienced stressful and hectic moments in our daily lives. Beach trips are considered as one of the ideal out of town trips there are where people can easily go to from time to time. There are gorgeous spots in Romblon’s beach resorts, Batangas’ beaches, and other provinces with remarkable places. If you’ve decided to head on to a beach resort, consider doing these beach activities soon.


  1. Building a sandcastle

You’ve seen children build sandcastles out there; it certainly looks fun to do. Try to make one with your children or the young ones once you’ve settled in a beach resort. Grab up some shovel and can to store your sand and mix with some water then you’re ready to go! Be creative in creating a sandcastle because our imagination is endless, feel like a kid along the way.

  1. Sunbathing

Even though most of us already have tanned skin due to the tropical season we have, some still opt to go sunbathing to keep their bodies tan or maintain their color perfectly on how they prefer. Get a long chair you can lie down on or a towel to put on the shore, a tanning spray or lotion, and shades then you’re good to go.

  1. Flying a kite

It may be hard to fly a kite because some beaches don’t have strong winds to fly a kite. If you still want to try to do this, bring one and let’s hope that it will become a perfect season to fly a kite in the sky.

  1. Playing beach volleyball

Most resorts have a playing net on the shore because many tourists play beach volleyball. If lucky the resort you’ll go to has one, don’t hesitate to play as it is guaranteed that you will have fun along the way. Usually volleyballs are rented in the venue so ask around to know. Better yet, bring your own volleyball.

  1. Stargazing

At night, gather with your friends or loved ones outdoors and get a towel or mat to stay on the sand. Most beaches have the perfect night sky (that is if it’s not the rainy season) which makes it an ideal beach activity to stargaze. Simply stare at the stars and appreciate how beautiful the world is.


  1. Social gathering

Social gathering means a lot of things, it is usually best done with alcoholic drinks to make the day more fun. Just make sure that you won’t get too drunk because you might disturb the others! Moderately drinking is just enough. Eating is also a suggested way to make socializing better.

  1. Chilling with a bonfire

Ah, bonfires make a beach night a perfect night to keep all of you warm and cozy. Ask someone in the resort to help you set up a bonfire. You just need some firewood and some paper to light your own bonfire.


  1. Extra: skinny dipping

Most people will consider this activity risky and stupid, but it’s fun to do at least once in your lifetime! Make sure once you do this, it’s night so people won’t see what you don’t want to see. It certainly feels different from wearing our usual swimwear. Think thoroughly if you’ll do this and make sure it’s with your friends!
