24/7 in Hong Kong, and then a cruise with Resorts World Manila and Star Cruises

Everyone in Travelife Magazine lives a Travelife.

You know all about my Travelife. But, as I type this out, Travelife General Manager Gel Bayona, who incidentally has been with Travelife Magazine since Day 1, is on her way to Paris on board Malaysia Airline's first brand-new A380, non-stop Kuala Lumpur-Paris.

That's a new and very comfortable way to get to Europe now from Asia, by the way...

Meanwhile, Travelife Associate Editor Carlo Velasco has been scouring the markets of Barcelona for good things to eat and photograph. Hope he manages to bring home some jamon jabugo for me... 

Travelife GM Gel is on her way to Paris today.

But last weekend she was in Hong Kong for a few days of fun. And then she hopped on a Star Cruises boat to take literally the slow route to Manila

She emailed me this update, from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, living a never-endingly eventful Travelife:


"I have been going around the world, living a Travelife.

However, Hong Kong never ceases to amaze me with its vibrant busy, cosmopolitan lifestyle. It's always good food, never lacking great entertainment and shopping experience.

If there’s one thing that I really love with my job, it is getting up close and personal with some of the best or most interesting travel experiences in the world. I also like being constantly on the go, visiting different destinations.

Last weekend, after a fun time in Hong Kong, I boarded the cruise ship Pisces of Star Cruises and sailed with it towards Manila.


The Pisces was a wonderful ship to experience some exciting downtime on the way from Hong Kong to Manila.

It's got shopping, world class entertainment, casinos, and good food all in one venue; and with all the necessary, comfortable amenities.

On-board, there were different Southeast Asia restaurants, including a big buffet restaurant called Mariners Buffet, Chinese restaurants called Taipan and Ocean Palace, and a Japanese restaurant called Umigawa.


Each of the suite rooms offered distinct and colorful decor, with big bath tubs and a separate dining area.

The suite I stayed in, which was called the Spanish Suite, certainly made me feel like I was in a floating five-star hotel.

Meanwhile, the Pisces offers the most daring entertainment show in water world.

The “Galaxy of the Stars” offers a mixture of multicultural entertainment and acrobatic show featuring talented entertainers.

Perhaps the best part about Star Cruises is that it's affordable and value-for-money compared to most other cruise packages on offer.

Certainly a wonderful and realistic option for those wishing to live a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife -- but on a budget.
