  • I'm back! Fresh from 6-day vacation in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Thanks to Post Option of Blogspot, I was able to schedule publishing of three posts in advance. While I was away, the three posts I've created prior to my departure were published on their respective scheduled days. So, the three posts that preceded this entry were published while I was on vacation.

    2. @ emjay. Take a bus with "Alabang Bicutan" sign. Alight at SM City Bicutan. Ride jeepney with "Alabang" sign that passes through West Service Road. KM18 is located between SM City Bicutan and Sucat, the next Exit of SLEX. Ask driver to drop you off there.
