We were often in Hongkong and Singapore so it is a toss up for me which spot is my favorite. In Hongkong the Big Buddha in Ngong Ping island can be considered by favorite while in Singapore my choice is the Gardens by the Bay which is a vast park with plenty to see. The park is also beside the Marin...

Re: Student Partnership Worldwide

When I was a student there was an exchange program of students. Foreign students would live here for 1 year to study for free while some of the students here go to foreign countries for the same purpose. I think I have not heard of that anymore.

Re: Evolution VS Religion

Re: Public Transportation Fare: Cebu Philippines

For local short trips that you would need a taxicab it is better to have someone help you. A foreigner is the usual victim of criminals in the Philippines although sometimes the taxicab driver is also a willing victim. Traveling at night adds a risk to your life so you have to be discerning with the...

I am still living in my home country but I have plans to move to another country for working and living.
