Whoa, congrats! Happy Anniversary to Eskapo! Ooh, so just like Lawstude, huh! Started writing about Law and ended up as a Travel blog! Anyway, your photos are all wonderful, hoping to see more.

Thanks for the shoutout. Here's hoping for another year.

Rio said...

salamat sa pag sha-share sa amin ng iyong mga pics..more pictures pa!
antayin ko ang next anniversary ng blog na ito=D

Redlan said...

At first glance, I thought price yang si fang. Kaya binasa ko muna ang thank you speech mo. Grabe special mention lahat, thanks sa effort. Malayo na talaga narating ng escapo. Kudos!

Now alam ko na kung sino yung tugsh na yan. lol. tas yung bai. Nakalimutan mo lagyan ng watermarks yung group. si Lawstude lang ang kilala ko dyan. Sino ba sa kanila dyan si Dong Ho? (Para kay Reena 'to). Joke.

Nothing more to add. Congrats and thanks for the inspirations through post and photos.

Raft3r said...

congratulations
halos magka-bday blogs natin, eh
san ang party!

Photo Cache said...

congratulations on your anniversary. more power to you. you are lucky to have the friendship, support, and guidance of more seasoned bloggers/travellers in the likes of ferdz.

keep up the good work.

luna miranda said...

congrats to you, dom! escapo has really evolved this past 2 years. and i agree that traveling around the country really makes me proud of being Pinoy. traveling does that---it cures prejudice and broadens the mind.

docgelo said...

happy anniversary to dong ho's eskapo! cheers to more amazing travels and sidetrips to share!

alicesg said...

Hi Dong,
I learn you are coming down this way. Sorry, I am unable to meet you, am down and out after all the merry making...lol.

I hope you have a great time here. You should have waited to come in Apr/May for the Universal Studio.

You might want to check out the family hotel that is cheaper than those in Orchard Road.

http://web.singnet.com.sg/~newchangihotel/

It cost only $100 for family room and can sleep four people. My relatives from Cambodia stay there and it is quite nice and near Eunos MRT Station and with great food near the hotel. It is quite popular and might be fully booked.

Joshua said...

Mabuhay ka kuya dong! pag patuloy mo ang pag papakita ng kagandahan ng pinas sa pamamagitan ng sining ng pagkuha ng litrato:)

PUSANG-kalye said...

~being a constant visitor here....masasabi ko na dami kong natutunan dito since I used to be very cautious and scared sa travelling. tru your blog I became more confident as the excitement of seeing those pictures really kept me going.... hope to explore more places in real life, and tru your blog. salamat

PUSANG-kalye said...
