For the 4th time I go to visit again my ‘schatje’, after a nice year 2013 with 3 visits we both go a step further outside the Philippines. It should be the first time that my ‘schatje’ goes outside his country for a visit to another part of Asia. First we go to visit Singapore (my second time after my first visit in 2009). Then we take the daytrain from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). Then again the daytrain to Penang (Malaysia). There we take the nighttrain to Bangkok (Thailand). After this adventure we go back to his place in Panay, Tigbauan, Baguigin to stay with his family.
