Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2018

The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2018 was my first full marathon overseas and my second to date. I’ve read about the event online and heard from other people but I was enticed when a colleague mentioned about joining.  We planned it out along with our other friends and we were supposed to join last 2017…

Goodbye, Flickr!

I used to take a lot of photos when I was in college and I stored some of my photos in Flickr, my favorite image-hosting site back then.  I lost a lot of my photos in my old laptop that I missed to create a back-up. Here’s all that I have left. As I say…
