You might have missed this episode last week or just want to watch the whole thing over again. The 8 remaining teams of The Amazing Race Asia 4 dropped by the Philippines for one leg in Legaspi City with the pitstop at the posh Misibis Bay. Here are the videos in four parts…
Thanks to Youtube/SLWarrioRXXX for the videos above.
Watch a fresh new episode tomorrow night, as the 7 teams left in the race will go to Christchurch, New Zealand for a truly nerve-wracking challenge that will either make them back out or face the dare and the thrill head-on!
Hosted by Allan Wu, The Amazing Race Asia Season 4 airs on the AXN channel every Thursday at 9pm. 😉
Krista Kleiner, our representative in the Miss International 2010 currently ongoing in Chengdu, China, continues to wow everyone with her effervescent presence, beautiful face and winning personality. Her confidence lever is at an all-time high and this really helps when putting her best foot forward around everyone. According to a colleague covering the pageant, there was this one incident when the ladies were introduced in their respective national costumes. The moment Krista took centerstage, she was asked by the host if it is true that she can do kung-fu, to which she replied on the affirmative. He was about to ask her to do a small demonstration but hesitated since she was wearing a layered dress and all.
Lo and behold, Krista had her nanchucks discretely hidden inside her wide sleeves. She immediately pulled them out and played in front of a pleasantly surprised and applauding audience! Whatta girl!
Finals of the pageant is not until November 7, but this early, Krista might just give us cause for celebration next month – be it winning the crown or landing a spot in the Top 3! 😉

The many moods and faces of my niece, Ishi, who's turning 7 today.
Big shout-out to my niece, Patricia Nicole “Ishi” Ople, who’s celebrating a milestone today – she’s turning 7 and how! She is growing up to be a truly bubbly and effervescent girl. To say that she loves being the center of attention is an understatement. She is THE center of attention everytime she makes her grand entrance in any family or school activity.
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
I love you, Ishi! 😉
Swimming pool area of Evergreen Place Bangkok
Whenever in Bangkok, I always make it a point to book a Serviced Residence unit (or a newly-opened property so I can review it right away). I simply love the spacious suites that allow movement and relaxation inside. What’s more, there’s always a kitchenette where I can cook or re-heat food in a jiffy. During my last visit to the Land of Smiles, I picked Evergreen Place Bangkok. Aside from the hard-to-resist room rate (only THB1,575.00 nett per night inclusive of breakfast), it helps that the location is just a quick stroll to the skytrain station at Ratchathewi (which also means that guests are only one stop away from the Siam Square area).
The 1-bedroom Deluxe Suite, with a comfy Queen-size bed, is attached to a walk-in closet that leads to the toilet and bath. I was pleasantly surprised at that configuration. But since the place used to be exclusive to long-term residents, I realized that it is indeed a convenient layout that insures privacy if ever you’re receiving guest/s in the small living room. I also liked the fact that each unit has a balcony that affords a nice view of Bangkok, especially at night. This is also an advantage for smokers who need not mess up the air inside the room.

Evergreen Place Bangkok is no longer new. It reminded me of condominium units built in the late 90s. But don’t let that turn you off. They have managed to preserve the whole building in a good state. It is always kept clean and well-maintained. The people at front desk are very easy to deal with and in-house security personnel are discrete. There is a good swimming pool on the 8th floor, which also houses the fitness center and coffee shop/breakfast area.

All in all, I was very happy with my stay here. I just wished I extended for a day or two because the promotion rate I got was a real steal! I heartily recommend it to all future visitors to Bangkok – be it for a brief visit or long-term stay.
Evergreen Place Bangkok is located at 318 Phayathai Road, Ratchathewi, Bangkok 10400, Thailand. Tel. No. +66 (0) 2219-1111. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bb. Pilipinas-International 2010 Krista Mae Kleiner waves to well-wishers during her send-off to the Miss International 2010 Pageant in Chengdu, China.
Krista Mae Kleiner was feted by Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) to a formal send-off to the Miss International 2010 Beauty Contest which will be hosted once by Chengdu, China. She is the last of the three Bb. Pilipinas winners this year to compete abroad (Czarina Gatbonton is currently in the thick of Miss World competition in Sanya). Pageant pundits are optimistic of her chances to become the country’s 5th Miss International titleholder and for good reason. Watch the video below to see why…
