If you ask one thing that you can do with flowers other than giving it as a gift is decorate your home with flowers. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have enough space to plant flowers on your front home because you can still display the beauty of flowers inside your home. Even better, you will always be able to look and feel their beauty everyday this way.
There’s been a point in my blog-hopping that I landed on posts about Haji Lane which is located in Bugis, Singapore. It’s basically a shopper’s paradise, hidden away in a tiny lane at Bugis. The colorful, pastel establishments and cute, unique finds on those posts made me think, “Hey, I must go here!” And I did.
I’ve only been to Singapore’s Chinatown before – and that was in my first visit back in 2007. All I remember then were shops selling affordable souvenirs like t-shirts and magnets. That’s all I remembered. My 12 years old self only saw a portion of what Chinatown has to offer and I was so glad to explore it with my uncle and brother – who might have actually explored a bit too much since my feet were screaming after just a few hours already.
If you follow me on twitter when I was on my trip in Singapore, you’d remember how much I gushed on how there are plenty of S$5 shorts and shirts from Cotton On. That costs PHP150 when converted to pesos and the cheapest Cotton On shirts being sold in Manila costs PHP400. Like, what a steal, right? Despite myself, I ended up spending a lot of my budget on clothes. No regrets though, since I love them all. Here’s what I got from my Singapore trip.
Wow. I can’t believe it’s been almost a decade since the first time I step foot into the Lion City. I didn’t even know travel videos were a thing back then. Lucky for us, my uncle likes making videos and taking photos. Therefore, our first ever summer vacation to Singapore was well-documented. I always get a laugh and a smile as I watch our Singapore 2007 travel video. I hope you guys do, too!
I’m now less than 24 hours (!!!) away from my flight taking me back to the Singapore for the fifth time. This will be my shortest stay yet but I’m still excited all the same. I’m really stoked the ride the twin roller coasters at Universal Studios Singapore, try out the extreme bungee and swing at Clarke Quay, and take a pose with a Taylor Swift wax museum at Madame Tussauds Sentosa. AHHHH! But, well, maybe I should start packing as soon as I get home from work…
