Welcome back, loves!
We all know that SINGAPORE is known as the most developed, urbanized and one of the safest country in Asia, if not in the world. Because of its size, Singapore is very easy to travel. Hmm, it may be a small country but there’s a lot of interesting things to do, and places to visit. It is one of the top choice for first-timer travel, family trips or even when you’re traveling with your friends. While costs are significantly higher than the rest of Southeast Asia, a lot of people continue to visit Singapore because of its unique and other attractions.
Last year, 2015, I went to Singapore for 5 days (I love this city and think it deserves longer than that). It was my first trip to the country. I fell in love with the city. I fell in love with everything about Singapore, their cleanliness and their modes of transportation. They have MRT and Buses in Singapore, these modes of transportation are very convenient, they also have Taxi but this would cost you a lot. So, I would suggest you to take their MRT and buses. If you’re commuting by MRT or Bus, you can purchase an “EZ-Link” card. This card allows you to travel by train and bus by simply swiping it over sensors as you enter and leave a station or bus. EZ-link cards can be purchased from the customer service counters at MRT stations. Singapore is a fast paced country (even their lifts, moving walkways and escalator are fast, people are always in a hurry), everything was organized in this country, there were NO traffic unlike in Philippines. I fell in love with every single sight I laid my eyes on. There are also a lot of Filipinos working there. You can see them in the restaurants or malls. Filipinos in Singapore are really happy when they see tourist Filipinos.

Last July 2016, after my graduation and I planned my vacation and decided to go back to this peaceful country. But, this time I decided to stay a little longer than before (18 days to be exact). Everyone was asking me “Why 18 days? Why is your trip that long?” I figured I needed to be away to think, to reflect and to get away from everyone and everything in Manila, I also wanted to try to be independent even for a short period of time. I was supposed to travel alone but my mom wouldn’t allow me to do it. They kept on insisting to find someone who would go with me. (It’s in my bucket list to try traveling alone, I guess it’s not my time yet do it. Maybe next time!) So, to cut my story short, my boyfriend (you’ll know more about him in my future posts!) and my college friend (Miki) decided to come with me.
Before I went on my trip, I did my research about the best spots to visit while in Singapore, things to do and eat, where to stay, and ofcouse I did some budgeting (Singapore is really an expensive country). I spent hours, days and weeks on planning my itinerary for 18 days. There’s a lot to do here, some great parks by the Malaysian border, and incredible Chinese and Indian food (indian foods in Philippines are more expensive than in Singapore).
Here are my photos from my Singapore 2016 trip:
This photo was taken at Marina Bay Sands while we were waiting for the light & water show. If you wanna be amazed by the light, music and sound, combining both electric lights and laser effects, try watching the light & water show. The admission is FREE and the duration of the show is 15 minutes. Showtimes run between 8:00PM to 9:30PM, AND 11:00PM on weekends.
Singapore Flyer – this is one of the world’s largest Giant Observation Wheel. You will fall in love with the panorama view of Singapore that captures Marina Bay’s skyline with a glimpse of neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia.

During my research about Singapore, I found this super cool and unique workout place where it combines element of aerobic fat burning, lean muscle-building, and balance & core training. (Balancing and doing core training is really hard and tiring though!). This costs me S$35 for one session.

Singapore is also moving beyond it’s sterile image and becoming a city with world-class nightlife. Dazzling lights, beautiful people and buzzing nightclubs, all of these you’ll see them @ Clark Quay. I just fell in love with the lights. I can’t wait to go back!
