I’m happy to announce that I’ve finally bought a new home for my precious blog FROM SEA TO SUMMIT! I think it’s about time. 😀 I made some few facelifts to make it look stunning and presentable for everyone. From now on, I’ll be blogging on to this address >>>—> FTSTadventure.com . Still FROM SEA TO SUMMIT, but just a whole lot better.
Preview of the new From Sea to Summit blog!
I was aiming for fromseatosummit(dot)com. Unfortunately, someone had already taken and purchased that address. So I’m left to either, change my blog name and rebrand, OR pick a different domain name and maintain the brand that I try to build for my blog. To be honest, I’m just too lazy to start from scratch so I choose the latter. 🙂
Anyway, I’ll leave all my old posts here for your reference. All of my new blog post and updates, starting today onwards, will be posted in From Sea to Summit’s new home [FTSTadventure.com]. Feel free to follow me there and join my future adventures.
See yah around!

Let’s drink and be merry, tomorrow we trek!
This the exact phrase an actor in the Everest movie had said. And it is exactly what we did. We were watching the Everest movie with a few bottles of beer on the table while waiting for our ride to Malacca. A friend of mine had hired a van to take us to the jump-off point of our climb. It was a grueling 4 hours of sitting and a lot of sleeping attempts, but to no success. I don’t know if it is because I’m sitting in a van or I’m just too excited.
Unknown to Sentosa visitors, there is a part of the island that’s preserved to tell a story of the past. Not most of the tourists who visit Singapore know about this. But if you’re one of the few, lucky you! Quite a rhyme, huh?! Kidding aside, let me entice you a little about the place. You might want to check it out the next time you visit Singapore.
Singapore is known as one of the best places to travel with family, and just this year, Lonely Planet has ranked Singapore as the world’s number one country to travel to next year. Why not? Singapore is like traveling the world without leaving the island. When I move here, I was thinking of Singapore only as a major shopping destination for shopaholics. A stopover for travelers to explore its neighboring countries—Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the list goes on. It never crossed my mind that Singapore has a lot to offer for adventure seeker who is in constant search for that off the beaten path. All you need to do is explore.
Recently, Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum open their doors to public, with over a million specimens. They have a wide collection of specimen, from Dinosaurs to the smallest creature you can see. The museum’s collection is an important research resource which preserves records of Southeast Asian biodiversity. So if you are a big fan of animals, nature and history, this museum is for you.

I’m back! And I’m loaded with lots of exciting adventures to share. I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who misses me while I’m away. (wink!) I’m so sorry for leaving you hanging these past few months. You see, I have moved into a new city and got a new job. And this job I have right now demands a tremendous amount of energy. Even if I always want to update this blog, my body just doesn’t want to cooperate. At the end of the day, the only thing I want to do is just retire to my bed and catch more sleep. Except of course if there’s a chance, I’ll surely go on a new adventure. That’s a different story. 😀
Don’t worry though. I’ll try my very best to share all those adventures I had for the past few months. Let’s start off with this adventure at Wave House Sentosa. I just learned recently that Singapore isn’t that short of activities for thrill seekers. One I highly recommend for you to try whenever you find yourself here in Singapore is the Flow Rider/Flow Barrel at Wave House Sentosa. If you’re seeking the adrenaline rush of a lifetime, try this activity. By far, this is the most adrenaline-pumping activity I ever had since I came here in Singapore.
Finally, I decided to take that first step towards my dream. A dream that brought me to a new city, and a new life. Although it doesn’t involved quiting a job, which what most travellers do these days. But instead, I’m going to explore the world by having a job, one country at a time.
