Dropping by Haji Lane, Singapore

Haji Lane, Singapore

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.

A Walk Through Singapore’s Chinatown

Singapore-Chinatown

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.

Singapore Haul

Singapore-Haul

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.

Travel Video: Throwback to Singapore 2007!

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…

Where’s your first ever out-of-the-country trip?

50 Things to do in Singapore (Some are FREE)

Things To Do In Singapore; Richel Goes Places

From my last post regarding Singapore, it seems many people think that SG’s only attraction is Universal Studios Singapore. And that, my friends, is so not true. I’ve spent three summers in Singapore (and going back this April!) and there was always something new to do every time. I have to admit that I only visited the more known tourists and local destinations as my father’s not really keen on exploring much (sorry Pa, I love you). In this list, I’ll be combining the things I’ve done and things I’ll be doing on my visit next April.
