ON THE NEWS: Wanna go to Singapore?

So Philippines finally won the Amazing Race Asia.

After finishing only second in the last two seasons, Fil-Am friends Richard Hardin and Richard Herrera finished first in the last leg in the race around the world.

The Richards’ easily won the race beating Team Singapore in their own home court to win the $100,000 prize.

Watching the Richards’ extract a 1 kilogram of crab meat from a steaming hot pile of crabs at the Red House Seafood Restaurant, ride the GMAX reverse bungee at the Clark Quay, perform a magic trick at the St. James Power Station and walked a tightrope 55 stories above the ground at the Marina Bay Sands made me really want to go to Singapore.

It’s a good thing that Cebu Pacific is no longer the only budget airline that flies to Singapore. South East Asian Airline (SEAIR), the second oldest airline in the country now flies to Singapore from the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in Clark.

Last December 15, Clark International Airport Corp. President and CEO Victor Jose Luciano and SEAIR CEO Avellino Zapanta announced that SEAIR will be flying to Singapore twice daily at a very low cost.

Don’t believe me? Check this out:

And what’s even greater news is that SEAIR is eyeing more international flights including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Macau, Vietnam, Korea and Japan.

Looks like I’ll be looking to book flights with SEAIR from now on and fly out of Clark to avoid travel congestion in Manila.
