There are new friends waiting for BK and I tomorrow. We are sending off James in his 100 Days of Backpacking in the Philippines. What a great, great day to gather around travel enthusiasts for an Intramuros Photo Walk and Binondo Food Trip. Come along and join us.

Hi Guys! It's time for another round of Girl Kuripot Giveaways! Can you guess where this Anywhere Philippines trip is?

I've told you about the free Postal Heritage Tour in Manila. Now, it's time for another experience that has something to do about stamp collecting! There will be a free tour conducted again within the PhilPEX exhibition site as to how stamp competition entries are judged. No, you don't win stamp competitions based on who has the most expensive or rarest piece. Based on what our Postal Heritage Tour Guide Lawrence Chan had explained to me the last time, it has something to do with telling a story with your pieces, how it is arranged and a lot of research about history among many other things. This is Stamp Critique 101. You will also learn how an individual prepares for a stamp exhibition.

Do you have an X photo somewhere? I've got one from my Korea trip! Like this wonderful picture with my friends during that memorable escapade, four different people will come together in a single location at one point in time with this contest. This is a chance to win 1 of 4 6D5N all-expense paid trips to Japan and it is being brought to us by fellow blogger Malaysia Asia and AirAsia X!

Did you join that free monthly Postal Heritage Tour I told you about last year? I got a free People Power commemorative coin from there and stamps as a reminder for that trip. I also happily met Peter, one of the GK readers, there. I remembered this suddenly when I came across this "coining contest". This other experience is probably worth a ton of laughs and an overnight stay. Haha.
It's almost Valentine's Day and I've got mini hearts floating in my head. First, the annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark, Pampanga is coming up and we might just find ourselves there again this year. My 2 posts last year showed a very different angle as to how we can prepare and make the most out of this day. Click here to know What Really Happens to the Hot Air Balloons During the Fiesta and here to Chase Airplanes and Pilots. And then, this contest comes along which activates the release of endorphins further (I've just eaten half a bar of Royce Chocolates too haha). I'm also giddy to tell you about my sample 4D3N itinerary/suggestions if you're planning to go to Kota Kinabalu!
Would you like an experience that gives back? This is your chance to do volunteer work for Kythe! I came across this experience during the Mid-Autumn Festival last year. The experience is free, monetary-wise. Maybe you can come for a volunteer orientation on a Saturday, January 28! Kythe Foundation supports children with cancer and promotes healing through simple sharing and togetherness. Read all about my Kythe experience here.

This is a chance to win a 2N Stay at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore plus a pair of tickets to see the musical WICKED! I so want to go back to Singapore! Twice was not enough last year with all my Singapore food trips, sight-seeing and adventures. Hehehe. I've written quite a lot of entries about those 2 trips. One of them being marveling at the grandeur of Marina Bay Sands Hotel and window-shopping at the big mall adjacent to it. Read more below to find out how to join the contest and to choose which kind of Singapore activity is your kind of trip.

February 1, 2012 marks the day when fellow travel blogger James will embark on this journey of a hundred (100 = shortcut for P100 in Philippine money = isang daan in Filipino = one road (cheapest possible he says) ) days. This day is open to anyone (you don't have to be a blogger). BK and I are actually planning to spend the day with the amazing Journeying James in Intramuros and Binondo. And send him off? Haha. You can contact him if you plan to drop by and join this contest for travel GCs as well.
Okay, I'm riding on the popularity of this campaign when I thought of the title and that's all I can think of at the moment. Seriously though, joining in could win you one of six Airphil Express roundtrip tickets to any of their domestic destinations thru PhilippineBeaches.org.

I super duper loved exploring Singapore. In fact, I went there twice this year in June (my first time) and July (just two weeks apart)! I never ran out of things to do and made my chop-chop list per post here. Now, if you're given a chance to explore Singapore with the History Channel series, The Hidden Cities, host named Anthony Morse, would you take it?
