One Singapore Morning

St. Andrew's Cathedral in Singapore

One of the best things I enjoyed while travelling in Singapore is the sight of historical places even while the city already boasts of modernity. A walk one, fair morning brought me to St. Andrew’s Cathedral which was built in 1856.

The experience gave me a sense of connection with Singapore’s past as well a part of their faith journey.  Just in one morning, I had that very special privilege.

My entry to:

The World’s 87th Top City

Kadayawan Festival, Davao city (wikipedia.org)

In 2007, I had the chance to live in Davao city to pursue post graduate studies. Why Davao? Ah, there were several factors why (like my school preference, the assurance of a friend of a place to stay there, the city’s nearness to a sibling’s address in Mindanao, Philippines, among others).

I must say that when I did live in Davao for 7 months, I loved the place. It was clean. It has all the city amenities you need (or maybe I should say I need) but like most Mindanao cities, it still has a lot of green and vacant land you can see as you navigate your way through it. It’s not all concrete and building.

I do think Davao city can very well be a great place to reside in as well as an interesting travel destination . I don’t think I can ever convince my husband to relocate there though but I can just content myself  in visiting the place from time to time. Below is the link of the news article on Davao being the world’s 87th top city.
