Merlion Park - Singapore Travel Diary

August 20, 2015

Hello there!

Wow, first of all, so sorry about the long delay. No excuses!!

So let's continue off my last post in Singapore...Our first call of business is visiting the Merlion park. This is THE landmark of Singapore. We decided to take the river tour boat to explore the area. The boats had a traditional look with its dark wood exterior and the interior was lined with wooden benches. As the boat takes you around the river, you get to listen to the history of the river and you can get a nice breeze in while you snap you pictures. I highly recommend doing the boat tour because it is pretty relaxing and you get to see so much around Marina Bay. The great thing about the tour boat is that you can get off and on at any stop once. So we opted to get off at the Shoppes at Marina Bay. I would say this shopping area is the home of the high end brands. Some stores you will see includes Chanel, Dior and of course, Louis. I didn't do much shopping here but we did grab lunch at their food court. You can find just about anything to eat here, from Indian curry, to Chinese BBQ and soup noodles.

They also have a very large Casino connected. Some things to note is that you will need to show your passport when you enter and I heard that if you are a citizen of Singapore, you need to pay to go inside. We went in to grab some drinks and to just look around. I would say this is one of the most opulent casino's I have ever been too and yes.. I have been to Vegas. It was just so wide and roomy. The casino has 2 floors, the bottom floor has most of the tables and machines, and the second floor has this huge opening where you can look below to the 1st floor. It almost makes you feel like you are the CEO of some big corporate business looking down at the tables from the second floor.


Shopping Malls: I noticed their malls were not as cold as the ones in the US. I was still able to break a sweat walking in the malls, and let me tell you, I usually don't sweat. So make sure to dress comfortably. Our trip mainly consisted of shopping, we did a lot of shopping.. from Vivo City to Orchard. Shopping is everywhere. I got a lot of cheaper items at Vivo like $5 tops and $10 bottoms. Orchard was definitely higher end, with luxury brands like Louis, Dior and Tiffanys. You should probably skip on the Tiffany's because even with the tax rebate, you are paying a bit more than you would in the States.

Okay, so funny side story. During our whole trip we were trying to get match-y couple items to wear. Because, in Seoul, all the couples were so coordinated with each other! So we happened to stumble upon the North Face store. So we checked it out and they had jackets for only $50. We finally found a matching set, he got a blue color and mine was a bright neon coral color. So exciting right?


Well.. that's all for now! Until next time~

Travel Diary - Singapore

August 10, 2015
Hi guys!

Today's blog post is about my trip to Singapore. One word to describe Singapore: Clean. Wow, this place is so clean. During my trip to Asia we made a stop for 2 days and 1 night in Singapore and it was definitely not long enough. With only an hour flight from Malaysia, you barely have time to fill out your customs form before you land! The Changi airport was beautiful and filled with so many attractions. Each terminal has different amenities and attractions including swimming pools, gardens and stores. I had no idea the airport was so nice, I would have gave myself some more time there! My favorite was the Kinetic rain installation because it is so memorizing.


On our way to the Bay Hotel, all I could notice was how lush and green the landscaping was. The roads were hugged with beautifully manicured trees and flowers. I still can't get over how beautiful this city is.

The Bay Hotel is a gorgeous place and conveniently located near Vivo City (a huge shopping mall) and the Sentosa Shuttle. The shuttle can take you to lots of entertainment including Universal Studios, the Trick Art Museum and an indoor Malaysian street food court. Our room was super clean but on the small side. I loved the shower rain head, I think I will need this in my future home. Oh I forgot to mention security is pretty tight here, you will need a hotel room key to get to any floor. The television set was decent sized, but it was mounted onto the glass wall of the shower, so it got me questioning if it was safe.. Linens and bedding were clean, the room overall was in good condition. I think the walls could use a little touch up but everything else was good. We also had a mini fridge filled with snacks and drinks.

The hotel also has a small pool area, gym and decent sized restaurant. They have a pretty nice breakfast buffet set up. We didn't eat there because we had other arrangements but if we had another day there, we would have definitely tried it. Well I hope this helps you make your decision on your accommodations for your trip to Singapore. More about shopping and whatnot on my next post!

Laneige x Playnomore

August 05, 2015
Beauty Blog post!
Looks like the Korean Makeup brand Laneige is pairing up with fashion brand Playnomore, And I am loving the collection! But the bigger question is.. how do I get my hands on these items??  I have a feeling it will be quite difficult since it will only be available for a limited time. (Sad face) Why is the packaging so darn cute!!


Anyways, while on the search for these adorable items, I found out the Laneige has made way into US markets! None other than your beloved Target. Looks like I will be making my way to Target sometime soon!

See you soon!
